We just got back from a stay at the Iberostar Grand Paraiso in Riviera Maya. Oh My! Fabulous is not strong enough of a word!
This was our 3rd trip to the Iberstar resorts, but the first to the Grand. We were upgraded (for free) to a Honeymoon Villa. Luxurious! Big 4 poster king, private garden, private pool, enormous bathroom, a hammock, sitting area, jacuzzi tub. I think the villa was larger than my first house!
I recently had heart surgery and eat a low sodium diet. No problem! The concierge wrote me a letter, my needs were spelled out and noted on each dinner reservation. Breakfast and Lunch at the buffet were easily accomplished by managing my food choices, or asking the cooks to grill something up for me. Because they use less salt in cooking than here in the states, I found I could eat most buffet items without making a special request.
The restaurant managers and wait staff bent over backwards, and cheerfully, to accommodate my needs.
The only restaurant we didn't care for was the Italian. The gourmet and surf and turf were extraordinary.
The grounds were exquisite, and decorated for the holiday, though Santa's sleigh and reindeer looked more like Cinderella's coach and moose! That was funny. The decor in the lobby is a bit over the top-Romanesque to the point of bordello, even. But charming nonetheless. Everything was fabulously clean, and the staff very friendly. We can't wait to go back!
