Whilst not a chain I have ever used, Iberostar appears to run a large number 4- and 5-star ‘Summer holiday’ properties in Tenerife, Majorca etc. They are also in Bulgaria, Brazil, Cape Verde, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Greece, Hungary, Jamaica, Mexico, Montenegro, Morocco, Spain and Tunisia.
The main Iberostar website is here if you want to see what they can offer.
As per the Iberia website, the earning rate if you stay at an Iberostar hotel is 150 Avios points per night. These Avios must be deposited in an Iberia Plus account, although you can move them across to BA or avios.com via ‘Combine My Avios’.
What is more interesting is that, from March 1st, you will be able to redeem your Avios for Iberostar properties. The Iberia website is showing the following rates:
Premium Gold and Grand Collection – 12,500 Avios per night
Premium Classic – 7,500 Avios per night
As you would expect from iberia.com there is no small print and you cannot book online. You will therefore need to rustle up a Spanish speaker and call their Spanish number in order to attempt to book. On the face of it, though, these do not appear to be bad redemption rates if you can get a Spanish 4* or 5* during the Summer seasons.
