Just returned from vacation at the beautiful Paraiso Maya. Had a wonderful time relaxing and enjoying the Mexican sun. This was our fourth time to stay at this resort. All of the staff are very friendly and try to make sure you are comfortable and have everything you need. This time around we opted to eat our dinner at the buffet every night rather than having to be at one of the restaurants at a specific time. Food wasn't spectacular but you could always find something you like. The "Star Friends" are wonderful young ladies and gentlemen who provide entertainment from the morning till evening at the show (hello to Anna, Karla, Eduardo, Daniel, just to name a few). The rooms are kept very clean - we always had plenty of fresh towels and washcloths. We did leave a small tip every morning for the person cleaning the room. We enjoyed drinks at the bar off of the main lobby before dinner and often stopped by for a night cap or two. The service there was excellent, too (hello to Fabiano and Betsy). We spent most of our day at the beach this time - usually stopping by the pool before heading to our room to get ready for dinner. The beach is beautiful and there were always plenty of chaise lounges while we were there. We did have a little difficulty getting back to our spot on the beach after enjoying a dip in the beautfiul Carribean Sea - there is quite a steep incline from the water to the beach. Otherwise, we had a wonderful vacation and met quite a few nice people (hello to Debbie from Kansas City and Chris & Sue from England). If you choose this resort for your vacation you can relax all week and enjoy the beach and the pools or join in the many activities with the "Star Friends".
