We stayed at the del Mar from 18-25 Apr 09. Almost everything about this resort was top notch. The room was great, clean, and well cared for by the staff. The beach was magnificent as were the grounds of the resort. The pools were nice, but water slides and such for the older kids would have been nice. The food... More

Pros: Great beach - sand is beautiful, ocean is aqua clear - like a postcard. Great service - resort staff is typical Mayan Riviera - happy to help, fun, always smiling. All inclusive - food is expected for all inclusive. As long as you know that you'll have good food but not excellent food you'll be fine. Drinks were great... More

My husband and I stayed at the Del Mar from April 11 thru April 18th and had a great time. We travelled from Boston and had an early morning flight so we were in Cancun by 9:45 am. Off to the resort we went. This trip was to celebrate my 50th B-Day and was so well worth it. The resort... More

First of all, this is not a good hotel for people who cannot comfortably walk at least a 1/8 of a mile. The resort is huge, with the beach at one end and the lobby and buffet at the other end. There is a trolley that will take you from one end of the resort to the other, but just... More

Just returned back from the Iberostar Paraiso Del Mar on April 16, 2009! Have been down to the Mayan Riviera 4 years ago and stayed at the Bahia Principe Akumul. The gardens @ the Iberostar were more beautiful with lots of animals to see and it was so lush with lots of flowers, etc. All the room views were nice,... More
