Everything at the resort was wonderful. This was my third trip to Mexico with my parents, sister, boyfriend and 2 of my sisters friends. THere was lots to do during the day and service was great! The only complaint I have is that there is nothing to do in the evening for those under 18. When you check in they... More

This was our 3rd visit to the Paraiso complex. Our first visit back in 2003 was to the Paraiso Beach, last year the Paraiso Lindo and we just returned (March 4-11th) from the Paraiso Maya. Staying at the Maya gives you access to all four of the hotels. (Paraiso Beach, Del Mar, Lindo and Maya). They all have a very... More

We stayed at the Iberostar Paraiso Maya in Mexico March 1-8, 2006. We chose this resort because of the beach location, distance from Cancun and the airport, wave pool, lazy river, and the all-suites all-inclusive accomodations. This is a family resort - I would not go here as a couple or even with a group of adults. If that is... More

Our family (2 adults, a 4 year old and a 7 year old) stayed at the Maya from February 25 to March 4. We may have stayed in a hotel completely different from the one described in last few posts as we were quite pleased with our stay! Our room was a junior suite and was large and clean. We... More

We stayed at the Iberostar Maya for five days during President’s week 2006 with our 10 year old daughter. Although we found some aspects of the hotel appealing, there are so many negatives that we would not return. Aside from its name, the Maya didn’t make us feel like we were in Mexico. The hotel is located in the middle... More

Just returned from the Maya after a week long stay. Went with two families with 6 kids (ages 9, 9, 7, 6, 3, and 2). All of us had a great time. The resort was immaculate and the staff was very, very friendly. The complex is made up of the Maya and the Lindo sister hotels. We sat almost every... More

My family and I stayed at the Maya Feb. 16th-23rd. I had eagerly awaited this trip - the reviews I read about the Maya were great. But, when we arrived, we had a room overlooking a huge constuction site. I heard the Iberostar was building another hotel. It's huge, and the banging went on all day. The hotel was unwilling/unable... More

We were in Playa Del Carmen at Iberostar all inclusive (Iberostar Paraiso Maya) this past week (2/18-2/25). The resort was really nice, but very large which got overwhelming at times. The rooms were great size jr. suites that were very nicely appointed and had large verandas with hammocks. Beach was really nice and big with crystal blue water, and nice... More

I faithfully read the reviews on this site to plan our vacations and I find that some individuals are super critical. I know that these vacations spots are pricey but if you nit-pick about every single thing you will NEVER be happy. We took the advice of our friends and booked at the Maya...very pleased to say the least! We... More

I always consult with "Trip Advisor" before we take a family vacation. People are usually pretty honest and on the mark when it comes to a realistic evaluation of a resort. I agree with most of the other reviewers. Paraiso Maya is a top all-inclusive resort. It's a huge facility, but you never feel overwhelmed. There are many nooks and... More
