Nicest Iberostar resort in Play Del Carmen Area?

Can anyone tell me the most luxurious of the Iberostar resorts the PDC area? Nice white beach, clear water, oceanview rooms, tennis/health club and good food are priorities. Any input is appreciated.

Most of the Iberostar Resorts have very few ocean

view rooms. Most of them are a tropical setting.

I've stayed at 3 Iberostar Resorts. If you want

near downtown Playa, Iberostar Tucan. If you want

away from Playa, just north is the Iberostar Del Mar.

Just keep in mind that this resort is huge and you

are going to do some major walking if you get an

ocean view room. Also, at any of the Iberostar

resorts you had better be sure you have it confirmed

in writing that you are due an ocean front room. We

had a little problem and if I understand it is an on-going

problem with all the resorts in this area.

I would stay at Iberostar Pariaso Lindo or Maya. If you stay there you can visit any other Iberostar down there for free. If you stay at Del Mar or Beaches, even though they share the same property as Lindo, you cannot visit Lindo. Lindo was great!!!!!!!

I highly recommend tipping the desk clerk when you check in and ask for a specific room area. You would be surprised what you can get.

I would have to say the most luxurious is the Iberostar Lindo. Great rooms, with coffe maker and paper delivered in the morning and bed turndown service with chocalates on your pillow at night! YES! Love that little touch! Plus if you stay at the Lindo you get to eat at the DelMar and Beach ala cartes also! But guests at the others don't get to use the Lindo ala cartes so they are not as crowded. I was there in April and am going back in December and cannot wait to get back!

all the best,
