Just got back after two weeks at the Paraiso Lindo. Great resort in many ways, with a few minor shortcomings.
What made this resort really great was the day time entertainment staff. They were simply incredible. They were friendly, engaging, fun, and we definitely enjoyed their efforts. For the first time ever, I did aqua aerobics (11:30AM) every day which is doable whatever your fitness level. After aerobics, drop by the smoothie bar for a healthy fruit or vegetable drink, then have lunch with a cerveza or vino and you're on your way to a great day. Activities are pretty much nonstop from 11:30 to 5:00PM if you wish. Day care is available if you have kids. The kids looked like they were enjoying themselves.
The overall ambience is very good -- beautiful lobbies, ponds with fountains flamingoes and swans, open marbled hallways, and good rooms. The grounds are exceptionally lush and well manicured -- great habitat for birds, reptiles, fish, butterflies, and adorable coati. The pools provide lots of variety, some quiet, some quite party like. Lazy river was a tad dull -- a simple loop with some greenery and a few figurines alongside for the kids. There was a lot going on during the day, but the evenings are a bit slow, as most of the bars shut down before 6PM.
The food at buffets and restaurants is generally great, though flavours are toned down to the meet the average pallet. Don't want to mention it, but half of our party did suffer some intestinal problems.
Evenings were okay with two shows nightly (kids first, then adults), but bars limited to the lobby or theatre. Disco at 11:00 for the late crowd. The resort could do with some more activity down by the beach in the evening. A bar, open for the evening, closer to the beach would complete this very good resort.
