Just returned from the Iberostar and had a great time. Was concerned before arriving due to the mixed reviews, so I decided my review was needed as we thoughly enjoyed our time there. Beautiful rooms, large with balcony and sitting area in the room. Marble floors everywhere and we had a large, deep tub with a hand held shower, which... More

I'll try not to be longwinded--my personnel scale 1-10, 10 being excellent grounds-10+++ service-10 pool-10 beach-10 room-9 entertainment -8.5 food-7 Ah yes the food, the only thing I can criticize about this resort. As almost everyone stated the food is plentiful and varied. But what good is variety if it has no flavour. My wife and I have been to... More

My family and I stayed in this hotel July 26, 2007-August 2, 2007. This was the first all inclusive that I have been on. When we got to the hotel, the lobby area was beautiful. There are a couple of stores and the bar was in the lobby. The lobby was made of marble which made it really breath taking.... More

We stayed at the Iberostar Paraiso del Mar from July 25 through August 1. Only thing I hated was the heat and humidity. Rest of the vacation was wonderful. Room was beautiful and clean. Every day we had fresh towels, sheets, flowers and towel animals. Food was excellent and Services were the best. We had 20 people in our family... More

What an absolutely beautiful hotel. Our first impression was fantastic. From the moment you pull off the main road through the manned gatehouse, you get a sense of just how big this complex is. Through the long driveways you get a sense of how well it is looked after. When our coach pulled up at the lobby, you step into... More

Paraiso del Mar was better than expected! We enjoyed the resort so much we actually passed on the day trip to Cozumel, so we... More

I was a little worried when I booked this hotel becuase the reviews on Trip Advisor were somewhat mixed. We got a great deal so we went, & so glad we did. My family LOVED this place, it's just wonderful!! I have planned many trips to Hawaii, we took an 8 night cruise to Mexico and I never seem to... More

My family and I just got back from Iberostar Paraiso Del Mar. We stayed there from July 19th and just got back on July 26th. We loved it. I have never written a review but after reading a few negative reviews I could't help but, write what I thought of it. The Beach: It was beautiful, the water is clear... More

I stayed at this resort on July 16-22, 2007 and didn't want to leave. I have been to a lot of resorts and this is, hands down, the most beautiful resort I have ever stayed at. First of all, the sheer size will take your breath away. The Iberostar compound of 5 resorts is breathtaking. The landscaping is like a... More
