“Vacation Trip to Riviera Maya”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Just came back from a wonderful vacation stay with my family in Iberostar
in Riviera Maya. Staff were wonderful. Buffet was ok, restaurants were excellent!
Rooms were great, clean and good size (we stayed in junior suite bldg 11). Beach and pools were awesome. Staff cleaning premises 24x7 (even cleaning send of beach walk). The great part are all entertainment crew (Star Friends) and young lady who is in
charge of kids club. She is very good with kids and speaks many languages.. Over-all an excellent vacation stay for us. Thanks Iberostar and your staff !!

Awesome! The Bomb! I read all the reviews before going and was a little concerned about the negative ones. We stayed at Paraiso del Mar and my family had a terrific time! The food was outstanding and the service even better. We went during the July fourth Holiday for 8 full days and the resort was 100% full. I had no issues with lines or reservations at the specialty restaurants. The only thing that was negative is the booze, but this is generic in all inclusive resorts. The booze gets you buzzed to a certain point and that’s it! One night, I had 7 shots of tequila and was able to recite the alphabet backwards! They supposedly have premium liquor at the main lobby bar, but I didn’t really notice any enhanced potency. In hindsight, I think that if you gave everyone real alcohol, there be much barfing and fighting! If you are a discriminating alcoholic like me? Pack a flask and get duty free Scotch, Vodka and Rum to keep in your room. The pool was the best! I loved the swim up bars and the Tiki huts for your lounge chairs. The grounds were very beautiful and had Coatis, Iguanas, Swans and Peacocks freely walking about. Be prepared to walk! This place is huge and has many things going on every day. I barely saw my kid the entire vacation because he was so busy. The staff was so nice and work very hard. Bring plenty of singles to tip them, they really deserve it! If you can get a reasonable upgrade to Paraiso Lindo, take it! Nicer rooms and real nice swim up bar with a cave like canopy. I feeI I got great “bang for the buck!” The guests were a mix of Americans, Canadians, Eastern Europeans and Mexicans. The E. European middle aged men favor tight speedos (ugh!) What are these guys thinking? The management took customer feedback very serious and was insistent about us completing a survey. The people that complained about this place are unhappy souls that would do best by staying home! Some people you can never please and will always find something to complain about. HAPPY TRAVELS!

Room Tip: Request a room in the middle of the resort around the 1500s on the first floor. this will give yo be...

The hotel is beautiful and the staff very helpful. They went out of their way to make sure we had a great time. Everything was all-inclusive, so family and I didn't have to worry about leaving the resort-though we could if we wanted.
The entertainment staff was very fun! Edu, Monce, Gama, Benito, Josh-all so much excitement! Couldn't help but get up and dance with them! There was always something going on to keep us entertained. Just wish I had more cash to tip everyone!
I do recommend LOTS of bug repellant and anti-itch creams. The mosquitoes were crazy! And the humidity was very high too. Had to shower at least twice a day! Luckily showers were nice.
All in all, a week was just not long enough. Family and I didn't want to leave! Highly recommended!

This hotel was a great choice for our family. The rooms were comfortable. The grounds are beautifully maintained and expensive. The food is diverse and the staff is wonderful. Plus, there is always something to do! We loved that they post all the activities for the entire week in the front lobby and by the pools. This allowed us to pick and choose which ones we wanted to do and plan our day. We tried scuba diving, salsa dancing, pool boot camp, Zumba, volleyball, soccer, pool games, and a bike ride. And those are free activities. We also loved the nightly shows. Our first night there we saw a magician who was absolutely amazing. The following shows were full of music and dancing. One night was a 70's Disco Theme, another was a Vegas Theme, and then even a Disney Theme. And all of the shows were appropriate and entertaining for kids and grown ups alike. The beach was also one of our favourites about this hotel. We were always able to find some chairs no matter what time of day we went. And since they have a bar and grill right there on the beach, you can stay there all day of you wish. We had an absolutely wonderful time at this hotel and will certainly go back.

For the most part our experience was a pretty good one. Having stayed here before the shows were exactly the same and had not changed since the last time we were here. The food in the al carte restaurants was not that great. I think the Brazilian restaurant was the worse. But the buffet in the main lobby area was okay. Not enough variety for those who don't eat pork would have loved more grilled chicken or turkey sausage. The staff was very friendly the grounds were well kept. Did not like the cheap liquors even in the al carte restaurants.
