Description
IBEROSTAR Quetzal

 

IBEROSTAR Quetzal is a five-star all-inclusive resort perfect for the destination wedding of your dreams, located on Playacar's magnificent beach, just minutes away from Playa del Carmen in Riviera Maya, Mexico. "Playa", that's how the locals call it, is an old fishermen's village that has transformed today to 'the' vacation destination in the Caribbean. From its fun-filled water activities like snorkeling and sailing to its vibrant nightlife full of bars and nightclubs on the main strip, Quinta Avenida, it truly is the hottest spot in sunny Mexico. It's also pretty central. Close to Cozumel, Tulum , Puerto Morelos, and even Cancun International Airport.

Staying at the IBEROSTAR Quetzal five-star resort is like being on an archeological escapade in a rainforest. For one, you'll encounter real ruins that existed during the Mayans era. In fact, many facets of this all-inclusive hotel is an ode to Mayan culture, from the architecture boasting palm tree leaves and limestone to the statue replicas of Mayan gods, each telling their own story. You can stroll alongside ponds, lagoons and caves all while enjoying nature's soundtrack around you. With its open-air ambiance, woodsy décor and warm colors, you'll feel like you're always at one with nature.

When you're on vacation, your hotel room becomes your home away from home. That's why IBEROSTAR Quetzal takes care of having everything you're used to like plush pillows, comfortable sheets, a cozy atmosphere, even a balcony or a terrace. From standard rooms to ocean view junior suites  and presidential suites, you surely won't be homesick. Amenities range from a dining and an outside sitting area. Plus, of course, the comforts of home like an iron board, a safe deposit box, a mini-bar, a hair dryer and cable television. And don't forget, room service is available from 11am to 11pm.

Whatever mood you're in, you'll find the satisfaction to your craving at IBEROSTAR Quetzal. This five-star all-inclusive resort includes tons of different cuisines from Mexican and Italian to Japanese and American. With five a la carte restaurants plus two international buffets and one grill snack bar, you'll be wishing you had a bigger appetite. Taste authentic foods like tortilla soup and beef tacos or rosemary pork chops and arrachera. No to mention the 11am to 11pm room service with favorites like wraps, salads, chicken nuggets, and of course, dessert.
