This was our second trip to the Iberostar Grand Paraiso from April 12 – April 19. (previously there in November, 2012). We went there specifically because of the unlimited golf last November, and returned for sun and golf in April, although it is not all-inclusive golf any more.
The Grand is wonderful – the entire complex is gorgeous, and both times we had a room in the main building which is convenient for everything. No problem getting reservations at the restaurants, even though the hotel was full the week we went. The food at all of the restaurants was wonderful.
The golf course if fantastic – we played 5 days on both trips, and I cannot stop dreaming about going back. Each hole is unique, picturesque and the guys who work at the course and the pro are friendly, helpful and are excellent ambassadors for the Playa Paraiso Golf Club.
The only negative that we have about this resort is the lounge chair hoarders. Totally ridiculous that they allow people to put, for instance, a book or coffee cup on a lounge chair and be gone for most of the day. All week we saw people with four different spots: they had a spot at the calm pool, a spot under the cabanas, lounge chairs in the pool and then lounge chairs over by the afternoon shade. We did not get back from golf til about 1 p.m. or so and most days could not find a spot and not even find a spot at the beach for the same reason. By our second day, one of the pool guys said he would find us a spot so that's what we had to do every day, and he did find unused space for us and move the hoarders and that was great, but I just wish the guests would be courteous to other guests by freeing up the space they are not using.
We love the Grand and will return again as soon as we can!
