This was a trip I had planned for my girlfriend and I to get away from the stress and hectic lifestyle we live. Within the first minute of stepping out of the cab, we knew we were in for a special experience.
During check-in we were told we would be receiving a complimentary upgrade to a ocean suite, no special reason, just because! We would of been more than happy with our original reservation in the standard Jr. suite but in true Iberostar fashion, they exceeded our expectation. While the front desk staff was getting everything set, a waitress approached us and we were offered daiquiri style mango drinks to really set mood of the Rivera Maya. Remember, this is a "all inclusive" resort, leave it at home, forget all your worries, you do not need to do anything, from the minute you step into the lobby, the staff will have anything and everything you may need or want.
The quality of the Iberostar Grand's all inclusive is top notch! Top shelf liquors, premium beers and food anybody would salivate over. A mini fridge in your room, stocked daily with top shelf/premium beverages and snacks, is quite a special touch. After drinking Dos Equis, Tecate, Sol and Victoria for a few days, the guy stocking the fridge asked me if I had any preference on our beverage selection. I said sure why not, how about some Corona, done! There are 4 reservation style restaurants in addition to the two buffet style restaurants. For us, we were so pleased with the buffets and the room service we didn't even make reservations to eat at the other restaurants. With lobster and caviar at your buffet, why go anywhere else? (I'm not kidding about lobster and caviar at the buffets)
There are a total of 5 Iberostar resorts on the "compound". The best part about staying at the Grand is, you have access to all of the other resorts but only you can access to the Grand! Restaurants, bars, clubs, shops, entertainment, pools, beaches and whatever else the other resorts may have, you can use and then retreat back to your exclusive Grand. We did this a few times but with only 6 days, we only saw a fraction of what Iberostar has to offer.
If you are looking for paradise, look no further, this is it! With the 5 star service, 5 star staff, 5 star restaurants, 24 hour room service and Vegas style entertainment nightly, there is truly is no other! The Iberostar Grand Paraiso is the definition of 5 star!
