"Grand" doesn't even begin to cover it! This hotel and it's staff are outstanding in every way!
Now, I know there are some reviews here that say the hotel is "showing its age," but I have to wonder of those people would truly find anything up to their standards. Yes, if you look way up high on some of the columns you might find a small piece of paint missing or a crack in a piece of cement. But, if you are looking that closely at ANYTHING, you'll be sure to find a flaw. But, is that really why you are there on vacation, to stare endlessly at a building until you find some missing paint? Aren't you on vacation to relax, be pampered and enjoy the beautiful surroundings? Well, if THAT is your goal, you are definitely in the right place at the Grand Paraiso!
From the moment we walked in we were pampered. Christian, our bellman, took our bags, remembered our names for the duration of our stay and couldn't do enough for us!
Fernando, our butler, was amazing, as well. He spent a great deal if time with us, orienting us to the grounds and explaining all the resort had to offer! He, too, remembered our names throughout our stay and always had a quick smile and made sure we wanted for nothing.
The entertainment staff, like Andres, always had time to chat, encouraging everyone to come to the nightly shows, which were outstanding-four fantastic singers, stellar band, wonderful dancers! And, they, too, remember you each time they see you again!
I could go on and on! But, bottom line, if you are looking for a grown-ups only vacation that will make you want to cry when you have to leave, then the Iberostar Grand Hotel Paraiso is where you should book your next trip! (Of course, if you'd rather count flaws, I'm not sure you'll truly be happy anywhere but home.)
