Our Opinion

A great getaway for both families and couples. The resort offers the usual all-inclusive amenities. There have been reports regarding a slight problem with the Wi-Fi. However, unless you're staying in this resort for business purposes, this isn't necessarily a huge issue. Great a la carte options, especially the European and Japanese restaurants.

Relaxing Time

We just returned from a nice 3 day trip. It was very relaxing, and if you are just looking for that, then this is what you'll get. The food is hit or miss, as is with most AI's, but plentiful and varying. The resort is very large and you can walk quite a bit (depending on where your room is) to get to the buffet. For us, that was not a problem, we enjoyed the stroll. We did not use the pool or pool bar so I cannot comment on that. We had an ocean front room which was well kept and stocked daily. Be prepared for people attempting to sell their wares on the beach. The staff is great. We would return here again.

Not bad for price

We are a family of four with two young adult girls. For the price, it's not all that bad. Our rooms were okay. Better than a lot of Mexico hotels we have stayed at. They kept the fridge stocked daily with water bottles and cokes. The food was okay. Nothing spectacular, but edible. Avoid the Italian specialty restaurant. It was horrible. The beach was nice. They tried very hard to keep the beach clean of seaweed daily, but let's face it, it's a beach. They can't control the seaweed issue. The pool was okay. It was difficult to find seating at times. Overall we enjoyed it. We went with the attitude of hanging loose and enjoying the beach and that paid off.

Beautiful Grounds, Too big for US

If you don't like bigger resorts please don't stay here. The lobby/restaurants are far from the pool and farther to the beach. Will have to wait for golf cart to shuttle you around if you have little ones. August is just too hot, terrible humidity and bring bug spray...mosquitos are well fed here.(Stayed the last week in Aug.) If you happen to have a red eye flight and land in Cancun around 6am remember that you will not have a room to check in to. You will wait in open areas/lobby. This resort only has AC in their rooms, none in public areas! ...it's awful. They were able to get us into a room at 11am better than 3pm....but the wait in the lobby with tired children, mosquitos, heat, and humidity is horrible!! Even 15 minutes wait is unbearable. Pay extra and stay at the Lindo...they have public AC areas , wish we would have know in advanced. Food is mediocre, not really good, your standard buffet, and restaurants with reservation were meh. We liked the Japanese Restaurant over the others. Beach was nice and big but nature brings in too much seaweed, so we only got in twice.

No security at resort and management is unresponsive to security issues

We just returned from an 8 day stay at Iberostar Paraiso Beach. We had 3 rooms (2 for adults and 1 for teenage children). We encountered a severe security issue the day before we left. A guest pounded on the door of one of our rooms and tried to use their key card to enter the room. When that did not work, they forcibly entered the room. Since there were people in the room, the intruder was chased away. Over the next 24 hours, the guest returned 3 MORE TIMES!!!! They would pound on the door and try to get in. The last incident occurred at 2AM. This was reported to hotel security but, it took 3 phone calls before they responded. This was clearly no “Accident” as they were followed and they we staying on the complete other side of the building!!!! At this point no one felt safe in our rooms and we had to leave the resort immediately. Upon leaving, I left my contact information with the front desk and demanded that the property manager and head of security get in touch with me as soon as I got back in the states. So far neither one has contacted me about the incident. Clearly the management and security at this hotel do not have safety as a priority and you are putting your life and the lives of your family at significant risk by staying at this resort.

"Awesome place"

Just returned with a party of 14 adults and 1 child, Wow!! what a awesome place, The food, the staff, the grounds, the beach, the pool absolutley fantastic.You are spoilt for choice when it comes to dining , you must try the Japanese a le carte, cooked infront of your eyes it was the best food i've ever tasted, I can't speak highly enough of this hotel every single member of staff ensure that your stay is as welcoming and safe. The Pool which is the largest pool in Mexico has more sunbeds and loungers than i've ever seen so you will not have a problem in finding a nice spot either in the sun or shade.The Entertainment staff and the Fun and Star Friends Staff are incredibly energetic and we had so much fun either with pool games or normal daily activities . What i also liked about this hotel was the animals/creatures that roamed about daily, but dont worry they are harmless espically the lizards , we actually had a 18" foot lizard that we named Larry that we met most mornings on the path way leading to the pool. We did go on a couple of trips Xplor and Chichen Itza - which is one of the 7 modern wonders of the world , all i will say they where fantastic. Overall this Hotel has everything that you wish for and even more , i would highly recommend this hotel
