Just arrived home from the Iberostar Paraiso Lindo, where we stayed from Feb 12-19. This was our first all inclusive vacation and I have to say that it was the best vacation we have ever been on!
We were originally scheduled to stay at the Iberostar Tucan, but changed to the Lindo after I read on here that the beach at the Tucan was closed. I have no idea how the Tucan would have been, but the Lindo was out of this world!
Upon our arrival at the Lindo, we checked in (quickly!) and got out first beverage from a waitress in the lobby. We then went to our room and were amazed by the beauty of the resort. The room was always cleaned and we always had a new animal-shaped towel left on the bed by the maids.
The pools at this resort are pretty impressive. LOTS of room to swim, but they were a little bit cold!
The beach...wow what a beach! We walked out to the beach every morning at approx. 10:00 and had no problem finding two chairs and a great spot to get some sun. Plenty of activities to do on the beach such as kayaking, sailing, jet skiing, etc.
We were very impressed with the food that Iberostar provided. If I could recommend anything to others going to this resort, book your restaurants early! After reading that many people only got the minimum of 3 nights at a restaurant, we decided to book early. We booked the restaurants within 15 minutes of being at the resort and were able to get a reservation for every night we were there!! (Steakhouse and Japanese Steakhouse were amazing!). Buffet was actually very impressive for breakfast and lunch. Service at meals was OUTSTANDING!
The night life was not anything to brag about, but that is not what we were going on vacation for. The nightly shows were put on by the staff of the resort, and we did not think they were that bad at all. These people work really hard to make sure that everyone is having a good time.
Everything at this resort is relaxed and very romantic. We celebrated valentines day here and thought it was perfect.
The drinks...amazing. They had every single type of drink that we asked for. We became friendly with Hugo at the pool bar and he definitely took good care of us. I would also recommend the snake bar which is that the Iberostar Paraiso Maya, just a 2 minute walk from the Lindo. We appreciated the service that we received from all bartenders, as they did everything they could to ensure that we had a great drink in our hands at all times!
The only complaint that we had about our trip was that we were not allowed into the Iberostar Grand Paraiso Hotel. We had gone on a nice walk one of the days and were turned away from the front lobby because we were not staying at that hotel. We asked the woman if we could simply walk through the lobby, but were denied. We were told that we could only walk "around" the building from the outside and could not enter any doors. Definitely a beautiful property, but we were a little surprised that they turned us away, especially when we had wrist bands on showing that we were staying at the Lindo!
With that being the only complaint, and not even involving the Lindo, we had an amazing trip. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to have a relaxed vacation. There are lots of families here but it seemed that we could always find a quiet and relaxing place to sit and enjoy our day! We will be returning to the Lindo next year and hopefully bringing some friends along with us!
