Details

Iberostar Quetzal is a luxurious All-Inclusive beachfront resort in perfect harmony with the environment. Fully appointed rooms with balconies or terraces are housed in bungalow style 3-story units surrounded by 28 acres of lush, exuberant gardens.

Literally immersed in vegetation, stone laid walkways wind through a light forest of trees, with restaurants on raised platforms peering over lagoons filled with tropical goldfish. A gigantic thatched palapa rises over the lobby, with statues of Mayan figures and a pyramid shaped kiosk bar. Covered marble walkways lined with blue pillars pass beneath Mayan arches, leading to specialty restaurants and the main self serve Tulum dining room. An immense tri-sectioned pool appears like an oasis on the edge of the jungle. Watersports and world-class diving instruction are offered in the crystal-clear aqua Caribbean.

The resort features a jungle-style garden, a large lake pool, nightly entertainment, a disco, three lighted tennis courts, and world class diving instruction with state-of-the-art equipment. Domestic and International drinks are available 10 am to 2 am.
