Olga in Reservations did a SPLENDID job of putting us in buildings 10 and 11 so that we could be near one another and we... More

We were hoping to stay at one of the higher end Iberostar resorts but they did not have availability for our dates. Since the Iberostar is supposed to be a great chain, we figured that the del Mar should still be very good. We were there from Dec 28-Jan 4. It was very crowded at the pool and beach since... More

I am just bewildered by all these negative reviews. Did these people stay in the same place as us? I kid you not, someone was scrubbing, cleaning, dusting, wiping every single day, everywhere we looked. We came out of our room one morning to a perfectly dressed maid on her hands and knees, with a big bucket of soapy water,... More

The Iberostar Paraiso Del Mar on the surface seems to be excellent accomodations. However, during my stay I found quite the opposite. Having been a loyal client of the Iberostar resorts for the past few years, I have to say that this resort's inadequacy was extremely disappointing. The food has gone way downhill to the point where it is far... More

Before I start, let me explain that my wife and I have done all inclusives all over the carribean for the past ten years, Having done these for so long, we pretty much know what to expect--nice resort, decent staff, decent drink, decent food. However, I have never had such a terrible dining experience. I am not talking about one... More

I am writing in reference to my recent trip to the Iberostar Pairiso Del Mar in Mexico. I have been there once before (about 5 years ago) and remember it being wonderful. As a result, we returned for another family vacation. To our surprise, things have taken a complete 180 there and it was HORRIBLE!!!! There were 10 of us... More

We stayed at Iberostar Paraiso del Mar from Dec. 3 - 10. We attended a wedding there (total 40 guests) and had an amazing time. The resort is simply beautiful. It looks like Paradise. The grounds are just breathtaking with all the tropical plants and flowers. Exotic animals roam the premises (peacocks, flamingos just to mention a few). There is... More

Just got back from an 8 day stay at Paraiso Del Mar and we really had a good time. The hotel is nice and the grounds are Beautiful. We stayed in building 19 and it was closer to the lobby than the beach but the walk there only took 5 minutes, and the trolley made many rounds so if you... More

This was a beautiful place to stay with lush landscaping everywhere you look. The rooms were comfortable and of adequate size. The service was great. The beach was beautiful and there was no problem getting a spot on the beach. Although I might add that early birds in our group opted to get our "spot" saved early in the morning.... More
