Your 24-hour all-inclusive perks will feel endlessly fresh at the Iberostar, which has 11 restaurants, five bars, a nightclub, and a seemingly never-ending menu of onsite activities and excursions. But it’s the airy, spacious accommodations—with deep-soak Jacuzzi tubs and roomy balconies—that’ll make you want to stay an extra night (or three). Opt for one of the seven swim-out suites, which include a semi-private pool.
