Adults can leave their worries behind and their kids at home, while reveling in IBEROSTAR’s all-inclusive, adults-only, ultra-luxury hotel experience. Only guests 18 and older can bask in the sun at one of five Grand hotels in the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Mexico, or Spain and on a luxury cruise along the Amazon on IBEROSTAR Grand Amazon Hotel Ship, all offered as part of IBEROSTAR Grand Collection Hotels. At any of these resort-style hotels, enjoy all-inclusive gourmet dining and drinking, 24-hour room service, recreational activities and entertainment, direct ocean access, and much more. From oceanfront suites to a personal butler to traditional spa treatments, here’s a look at some of the many luxury amenities that these extravagant hotels have to offer.
IBEROSTAR Grand Collection resorts offer an unparalleled selection of luxury suites, which, depending on the hotel destination, include oceanfront suites, suites with garden or ocean views, and secluded suites––each with a terrace or balcony. In each suite, beds are made with fine European bedding and linens; the bathroom is adorned with marbled sinks and showers, his and her vanities, a Jacuzzi tub, and complimentary bathrobes and slippers. The bedroom features a fully-stocked mini bar, personalized to your taste and restocked daily; interactive TV, DVD player with a DVD menu, CD clock radio, and iPod/MP3 docking station; and high-speed Wi-Fi.
At Your Service
IBEROSTAR caters to your every whim. Upon arrival, guests are greeted with a cold towel to cool off and escorted to their suite, where a chilled bottle of champagne awaits them. A 24-hour concierge and room service is accessible, and each suite comes with a butler, available to answer any questions and assist with whatever a guest’s need may be. In each room, the fully-stocked mini bar is personalized to taste and restocked daily; and every morning, a local newspaper is delivered to the door. For ultimate sleep comfort, guests may choose from six types of pillows on the pillow menu, and if in need of a wake-up call, guests can just dial “0” via the suite telephone to request a personal alarm. Other services include a 24-hour doctor on call, a 24-hour taxi service and a car rental service, mail, laundry, and currency exchange. When it’s time to go, a butler will come directly to a suite to check guests out.
Dining and Drinking
Guest are treated to a decadent collection of gourmet, international, and local cuisine at IBEROSTAR Grand Collection Hotels à la carte restaurants––each decorated with a different theme––as well as five-star breakfast buffets, which are headed by accomplished international chefs. Whether served indoors or under the sun, every dish is exquisitely prepared and beautifully arranged.
The Grand Collection’s many bars (a few of which are oceanside and swim-up bars) are fully-stocked with unlimited juices, soft drinks, and alcoholic beverages of choice.
Recreation and Entertainment
There’s an activity for everyone at IBEROSTAR resorts, whether it be dipping in the pool; lounging on the beach in a beach chair or bed; jumping in on one of the many à la carte fitness classes; participating in a sports game, including beach volleyball, beach soccer, tennis at the hotel tennis courts, and more; or renting aquatic equipment from the aquatic recreation center for activities, such as sailing, windsurfing, and kayaking. For golfers, IBEROSTAR offers two challenging, 18-hole courses that are located on-site and are carved out of tropical terrain at the Grand Hotels in the Dominican Republic and Mexico as well as an 18-hole off-site course for guests staying at Jamaica’s IBEROSTAR Grand Hotel Rose Hall at the nearby Cinnamon Hill or White Witch. Guests staying three to four nights at the hotel, receive a complimentary round of golf; while those staying five or more nights, receive two complimentary rounds.
In the evenings, performances are scheduled on a rotating basis at the hotels’ theater; and for an even later night, guests can go dancing at the late-night “disco.”
Beauty and Wellness
Physical and mental relaxation are an utmost desire while on vacation. IBEROSTAR’s SPA Sensations offers just that with lavish Turkish and Roman baths, Jacuzzis, and thalassotherapy pools; a number of therapies and signature treatments, such as an ancestral Jamaican spa ritual involving coffee bean and brown sugar exfoliation; and even beachfront massages.
The gym is equipped with an extensive range of equipment and is open 12 hours a day. A la carte fitness classes, such as yoga, water aerobics, and spinning, are also open to anyone during the day.
To say the least, IBEROSTAR’s extravagant, all-inclusive Grand Collection Hotels are quite worth the stay.
