I can not say enough good things about this resort to convey how outstanding this place is. I was literally blown away by every aspect, the resort exceeded my expectations by far. the hotel itself truly is GRAND, it has amazing presence on the beach, its breathtaking. this place is immaculate! the cleanliness was impeccable. The service, what can I say, it was TOP NOTCH!!! the staff is so professional and outstanding at what they do. The entertainment crew was awesome! Best service i ever experienced. This place is worth every penny you pay for it. you really have to experience it to truly appreciate it. If anyone has a less than 5 star review for this resort, they are just nit pickers. Honeslty, the Grand deserves 6 stars in my book. You will not regret booking this for your getaway. Also, the pictures can not even do this place justice, it has to be experienced first hand. AMAZING!!

Beautiful hotel, staff were ALL AWSOME! Great food and drinks.
Planning on returning next year. All 4 restaurants were excellent. Men, bring one pair of pants to wear for dinner at the 4 restaurants. Buffets are fine if you don't want to wear pants, but you'll miss out on the great food.

Room Tip: Building 71, room 7109. Ocean front, ground floor. Steps away from being on the beach

Beautiful hotel and great service. The beach is very strong waves( Red Flag every day) can't do any water sports very disappointed!!! The life guard said is like this 24/7!!!!! Golf course is very nice lay out and challenging but why they chose this time to punch and sand the greens without informing us, we planned our trip around golf!!! For those of you book on round trip transfer with Olympus Tour make sure confirm, confirm,confirm with them on your return because they never showed up for our pick up( we tried to confirmed with them 3 times)

I am in the travel business and have been to Mexico so many times I have lost count, but over 30 times maybe closer to 50. I have to say the is the best service I have ever received at an all inclusive in Mexico. The rooms are extremely well maintained an comfortable, check in was a breeze. The one thing that I did not like was having to make reservations for dinner at the ala carte restautants. We were just having a quick 3 day getaway so couldn't try all the restaurants. We arrived around 6pm and were exhausted from a long day of travelling and starving. I did not want to do a buffet. I wanted to sit down and be waited on! Concierge said they quit taking reservations at 5pm, but I went back to front desk and expressed my displeasure and he said to get ready and come back at 6:30 and he would call the restaurants and see which one could squeeze us in. And as promised he did and we had an amazing dinner at the Surf and Turf restaurant. It was comparable to any nice restaurant in the US that we would have paid a couple hundred bucks for. Drink service by the pools was fast and efficient. I never sat on beach as it was windy so can't comment on service out there. The beach is gorgeous and you can walk approximately 2 miles to the light house at the other end of Maroma beach in about 45 minutes. Lobby bar drinks were superb, and they will make you a real margarita on the rocks that is excellent. The Japanese restaurant was good and pretty much the same as all the other all inclusives I have been to nothing extraordinary. We did go over to the shopping area and have ice cream and street tacos one day. Street tacos were good, but it is pretty popular place and the other Iberostar resorts can go there too so might have to wait in line. Breakfast and lunch buffets were good, but I am not much of a buffet person so I just can't say they were fabulous. Check out was a breeze and hope to go back sometime soon. I have seen this resort compared to Le Blanc, and if you want to be in Cancun that is great. But if you want a resort in a less congested area with a beautiful beach and not far from the airport this is definitely an excellent choice.

We stayed at this luxury resort last week. Our stay was every bit as wonderful as the previous great reviews. We agree that anyone's complaints are totally unjustified and those people would be virtually impossible to satisfy. Word of advise to those who complained: don't go back, we don't want you there.

Sending very special thank yous to Butler Rene, our Wine Steward Teodoro, Star Friends Carlos and Jonathan, Massage Therapist, Elinoro, and most importantly our waitress by the pool, Mira, for keeping our drinks refreshed. Thank you to everyone else for making our stay the most outstanding ever!!

This was our fourth stay at the Iberostar Paraiso Grand Hotel, and our first stay as just a couple. This resort is pure heaven. Gorgeous landscaping, palatial architecture, quiet, great food, and top service. You can do the shows, have great jazz in the Lobby Bar, or just do nothing! We had free golf, and were just too laid back to even do that!

What an opulent,Palace. Words and pictures does not do this place justice. Anybody that is not blowed away by this very spectacular resort just cannot be pleased. Worth the cost!!! Stayed at La Blanc last year and the Grand is every bit as good except the grounds, building, art work, and tropical location at the Grand is phenomenal. Beach is a little rocky in spots but the rest of the resort makes up for it.

Room Tip: North Side on the beach. 2nd floor
