Our Opinion

A perfect hotel for families and couples. There is a plethora of activities during the day and night. Evening entertainment is held every night. The property - which includes Iberostar Paraiso Beach - is huge, so this resort is suited for those who don't mind a little bit of walking. There is a variety of both buffet and a la carte items to choose from - make sure to check out the steak restaurant. A great beach area. However, like most large resorts, this area gets fairly busy during the day, so make sure to grab a lounger early. An amazing kids club and there are plenty of all-ages activities.


Overview

You'll be treated to the renowned Iberostar quality at this beautiful luxury hotel, located on a kilometer-long white-sand beach. Enjoy tasteful dining, amazing amenities and relax with the superior level of comfort in bungalow units that are nestled within 35 acres of lush tropical gardens.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • Kim H :
Very Enjoyable

To start, we were a group of five Canadians, two teens (14 & 17), and three 40somethings. We have visited resorts in Holguin Cuba, Cancun, Cozumel, Puerto Plata, Mayan Riviera. Resort grounds are beautiful; lush vegetation, wandering animals, and extremely clean. Our rooms were all very clean and in good repair. Plentiful towels in our room and mini fridge restocked daily with beer, soft drinks, and water. Our room was in the 19 block and was close to the lobby, theatre, buffet, and some a la cartes. Was a bit of a walk to get to beach and pools, but not as long of a walk as some of the other resorts we've been to. For us, our room location was ideal. In our 7 night stay, every one of the resort staff were polite, kind, very helpful, and SO hardworking. The staff are 10/10! We really enjoyed the nightly shows, and our favourites were Circus, Magic, and the Rock shows. While waiting for the show to begin we found the theatre was warm as the ceiling fans were not turned on until the show started. Not that big of a deal. The cold drinks helped!The pool areas are very clean and in good repair. The workers constantly pick up used cups and garbage. There are many pool loungers and there seemed to be enough shady areas for those who wanted them. We liked that there were very quiet areas, not so quiet areas, and party areas around the pool- something for everyone. The restrooms at the pool areas were spotless! Ice cream bar by the pool was loved by us all- my favourite was coconut ice cream. So good. We enjoyed the beach in the early mornings and would move to the pool area around noon when the beach became more crowded. I wish we brought water shoes. Both myself and another of us hurt our feet on rocks in the water. The water was pretty wavy during our visit. It was lovely to listen to the waves crashing while lounging each morning. The beach area was very clean. Food was good. We've had better, and we've had worse. We ended up having dinners at the Rock Star cafe in the lobby 3 nights out of the week because we really liked the atmosphere and the food. Out of all the resorts we've visited, this is my second favourite. We all would visit here again and would recommend Iberostar Paraiso Del Mar to other families.

Big Beautiful Clean Site

We spent a week (Nov. 17- 24, 2016) with a couple of friends and everything was just super! The food (at the buffet), although repetitive, was very well prepared and good. There is no reason for anyone to go hungry, there are tons of food and a huge variety. We were at the sister hotel (Beach) a few years ago and found that the service and everything is the same at both places. A la carte restaurants (Japanese, Brazilian and Italian) were fabulous. We couldn't even try all the different meats at the Brazilian ... guess we had too much salad :) This is a HUGE resort, so be prepared to walk a lot or just hop onto one of the golf carts as they go by. You can always call the front desk and they will send one out to you. The pool is the biggest pool you'll ever find. It's huge. Although the water was really cold compared to a few years ago, we did enjoy it. There are always chairs with palapas available all along the pool. It was red flag at the beach most of the week but that didn't affect us since I can't use the beach anyways. Our friends are planning on returning in March and we will definitely be going back. Washrooms are important for me and ALL of them were spotless. I strongly recommend this hotel.

Beautiful Resort

This was beautiful resort, and excellent atmosphere. The buffet food was OK, but the restaurants are excellent. Would definitely recommend for another stay, just wish there was more of a beer selection, only 2 beers throughout the resort.

Beautiful!!

My second time there...I love this place!! from the minute you get there you feel like you are in the jungle. Its friendly, clean, spacious and a lots of colourful plants. You will see coconuts and bananas growing on the palm trees and many different animals roaming around.Be prepared to do lots of walking as its a bit of a jaunt from main restaurant to the ocean with your room somewhere in between. Or catch a ride on many of the golf carts driven by friendly staff. I spent my days on the beach which has a bar and grill or you can go for a short walk through the jungle to 2 restaurants poolside. The water was warm, waves were rough while I was there with a strong under current so be ware and watch for rocks underfoot but I still preferred it to the pool. No expectations no disappointments!

Awesome trip!!!!!!!

Just got back from our 7 day vacation and enjoyed every minute of it! The view from my room was breathtaking. The staff went above and beyond to make sure our trip was fantastic. Big D at the lobby bar was friendly and very accommodating. Danny the bell boy made a point to make my friends Birthday the best. The thoughtfulness meant so much! The food was good and enjoyed the pool and entertainment but the staff definitely made this trip worthwhile. I can't wait wait to go back!!!
