“Perfect little paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Ignore bad reviews and give this resort a chance. You will be pleasantly surprised. Entertainment group is perfect.Food is OK. Beach and pool rocks. Loved the fact that I did not have to dress up for the restaurants.

Room Tip: Building 13 is close to the pool and beach. Little bit of walk from the buffet never bothered us.

We travelled with my in laws and our teenage daughters. With that large of a spread in ages, we were worried that everyone would have a good time. Look no further than the Iberostar! Lots to do for all. The resort is large...very large. The pool goes on forever. Beach is expansive with plenty of chairs. Food stations throughout. Plenty of bar options including 3 swim ups.

The food was very good by Mexico standards. We really enjoyed the Japanese steak house. Drinks were delish. Beer, sodas and water in the mini bars. Room service was also available.

Entertainment was great. They put on big shows at night. The disco was BIG. The shopping mall at the adjacent property (which was open to any iberostar guest) had a great little taco bar, coffee bar, ice cream parlor and more. The pool has it's own shop in case you forgot a float or sunscreen.

The rooms were good sized and tastefully decorated. Marble baths with walk in locker room shower. Nice patio. Beds were very firm but I've experienced that at the dozen other Mexican resorts I've stated at.

Very friendly staff...lots of smiling faces. All in all no complaints. Good job Iberostar...mucho gracias for a great vacation experience.

We just got back from our trip to Iberostar Paraiso del Mar and we miss it already! We were blown away by the beautiful grounds, spacious hotel rooms and friendly staff. The weather was hot and humid, but the pools and beach kept everyone cooled off. The food might not have been amazing, but there were many options and we never left the buffet hungry. We enjoyed the specialty restaurants. The bars were great and we always had a drink in hand! The staff at Iberostar was friendly and fun and made us feel so welcome. The pools were huge and there were always fun activities going on. We recommend getting up early to save a poolside cabana and chairs. The beach was also gorgeous and we enjoyed taking out a catamaran and sailing in the Caribbean. Although our room was a bit far from the pool/beach, we didn't mind walking along the shady and paved paths. We loved the "jungle" feel and all of the animals and wildlife. The night shows were also a lot of fun and we especially enjoyed "Boogie Night"! The resort was great for couples or families with children of all age. Overall we had an amazing time and will definitely be returning!!!! Thank you Iberostar for a great vacation!

My husband and I just came home from a four night stay at the Iberostar Paraiso Del Mar. We booked a last minute deal through Apple Vacations, and for the amount we spent we were very satisfied! We have booked through Apple to the Dominican twice before and love how all the details are taken care of for us. It's worth the little bit extra that you pay in comparison to sites like Cheap Caribbean. The Iberostar was beautiful, food was great (especially the Italian and Mediterranean restaurants.) Our stay was made even more wonderful by Javier at the Italian restaurant, he is a gem! He made us feel like we were VIP guests and remembered us each time we walked to the bar during the day. We loved the Iberostar complex. Each day we walked the grounds for a little exercise and found that we could easily walk 3 miles following the outside roads and paths through all 4 resorts on the property. The Shopping Mall is a nice place to escape for coffee, free wi-fi, or drinks in the evening. We were amazed at how many people we on the property with us because it was so easy to find privacy anywhere we went.

Room Tip: The property is very long and narrow with buildings on each side. It takes about 5 minutes to walk f...

My family and I stayed here for 5 nights and absolutely loved it! We had two beach front hotel rooms, which were incredible! The staff is very friendly! The only down side of it was all of the walking that we had to do! The bell hop guys came around with golf carts once in awhile to give rides. This hotel had great food, great views, and great staff! I would definitely stay here again!!

7 nights and would highly recommend! Only real negative was the food in the buffets being a little repetitive, and also not being a big fan of only 3 reservations for restaurants allowed. The Brazilian and the Steak House were half empty the nights we were there! Steak House was surprisingly good. Japanese was excellent. We asked but were told we could not be put on a waiting list for cancellations. The people were the friendliest we have encountered in the Caribbean (including 2 trips to Jamaica). From every single staff member (maintenance to wait staff) you hear "hola" as you pass them. Good beach, and access to water sports right off the beach. Activities every day and the staff works hard to include everyone. Lots of energy. Kudos to David especially. Pool games every afternoon. The bartenders work their butts off! Very generous with the drinks. Thanks to Omar, Francisco, and Luis! Rooms were roomy and kept clean. The fridge was re-stocked with whatever we wanted every day. The beach grill was a nice option in the afternoon. The vendors on the beach were not pushy as they can be other places in the Caribbean. The grounds are big so be prepared to walk. A jungle theme so the paths are enclosed and there is wildlife. Lots of coati's and iguanas. One kid loved it, one not so much. Overall a great week and will definitely consider a return visit.
