Excellent Family Vacation July

I would honestly give this property a 4.5 (mexico 4.5 and that varies from a USA 4 star hotel). We had a wonderful time in July. We stayed 8 nights at the Lindo. Family of 7 and we had 2 rooms. Rooms were outdated but clean and fridges were stocked. WE had been vacationing at Barceló Tropical for the past 3 years. I will compare this to Barceló Tropical. Excitment and entertainiment: Fun and excitement for my teenagers is far more plentiful at Iberostar. The Star Friends at the pool are excellent. We made great friends with Rico, Charlie (whom I adored) and Ricardo. Entertainment is better at Iberostar. Property: Barceló's property is overall nicer and a bit more glitzy. Their mall with the 24 hour boiling alley and food (is hard to beat). Plus Barcelo had continual bands and activities in the courtyard of their mall. Unfortunately Iberostar's mall is lacking. They need to have activities in the courtyard. It would make the mall more appealing. Iberostar, you have the space.....organize activities, vendors and events in your mall to pull the people inside. This will help the sales of your products in the stores. Beach activities: Iberostar far outweighs Barceló. Barceló has a reef on property making their beach nicer and better for snorkeling. But activities on the Barceló beach are lacking. Iberostar has constant activities and they do paella in the pot on the beach, which tastes okay. Its far more enjoyable on the Iberostar beach. Iberostar has a hotdog and hamburger stand; with little tables to sit at. Convenience factor: Iberostar wins. They are only 20 minutes from airport whereas Barceló is 45-60 min away. Cost: Iberostar and Barceló are very comparable in price. Food: Barceló wins on food. their restaurants are more glitzy, nicer and food is better. Overall we had been to Barceló 3 times and Iberostar Paraiso Lindo once, we will be returning to Lindo but we would also return to Barceló. We liked both.

Nice place - clean rooms & facilities - nice staff

Great place to stay - the rooms and facilities were very clean - the food selection was good and the food was also good. There are a variety of pools which keeps it interesting. The staff is very polite and aims to please. However, we did have one uncomfortable moment with Charley at the archery range. He made several rude comments about Asians (calling one group 'ugly'). He said this even though there were several Asians with kids that were hearing these remarks. Additionally, he referred to one approaching-senior woman as 'Grandma', which is something I'm sure she did not appreciate. I think he thought he was being funny with these comments. This contrasted with the rest of the staff, who were more than polite and helpful. The nightly shows were entertaining, however the auditorium was extremely hot. Fans would help.

Pool

We selected this hotel as we was celebrating my husband's 50th birthday and already had stayed in an iberostar come before we was sure we would be happy. When we arrived we was tired but keen to see what our resort awaited us. The complex looked huge and a little intimidating but it would do as we had not got our bearings. The porters were all very friendly and helpful especially "jose" and we were soon acustum to our complex. As we settled in we booked in to all the restaurants via the concierge team. We found the Italian and the steak house was more to our taste. The manager, Felipe in this restaurant was brilliant.He went above and beyond to make sure your food and service was amazing, we would like to thank him again for making our holiday dinning experience a fantastic and relaxing one with amazing food.. The entertainment staff work hard to keep us all entertained.The mexican night was our favourite and loved the music and costumes. Rodreco always had time no matter how busy he was to come over and talk to us. the wildlife was amazing, not many iguanas which made me happy and the beach was powdery white sand.yes there was seaweed but you carnt argue with mother nature and the hotel tried to remove as much as they could which was great. Experienced a few nights and days with power loss, did not like it very much at night because air conditioning went out. Was a bit disappointed when we went to the next hotel "the maya" and was told we couldn't drink there as we wasn't upgraded enough,which was a shame as the bar had marvellous decor.felt like I was in a Indiana Jones film set. All in all we had an amazing time at the Lindo, the food was great the service was amazing,plenty to choose from and fresh.pools,sea night time entertainment brilliant. Rooms were very clean and has a well stocked fridge.Brilliant!..our 15 year old daughter was very sad to leave here but we are hoping to come back for her 16th birthday next year.. Thank you Felipe, Rodrigo and staff at the aqua bar especially the happy and lovely gloria for making our holiday an extremely happy one.

Annual Family vacation 2017

This resort was amazing from the moment we arrived. Checkin was quick and easy. Our rooms were ready upon arrival. We had three and they were next door to each other, as requested. Accommodations were perfect. Each building had a concierge and they were always available and eager to help. The wait staff was always pleasant, at the beach, pool and in restaurants. Breakfast and lunch options were hit and miss. Only available at the beach or in the restaurant. Would have been better if it was available at the pools. Surprised the find that the pastries and desserts seemed to be prepackaged and brought in. Wished there would have been some fresh, made on sight, desserts. Dinner options were nice...we had reservations every night at a different one. Steak was was good, hibachi was entertaining and good, Cajun was not very authentic (we're from LA), French was good except for the table we were stat at...not crowded and they sat us with half our group facing a wall and Mexican was very good except for the margaritas. Probably the worst ones we had the entire stay. Only negative was lack of communication received between travel agent and resort spa. We were told we had a $50 credit to use at spa. We inquired prior to trip if we could get pedicure and was told by our travel agent "yes". Upon arrival we asked the concierge to book for us with the credit and was pedicures did not qualify for the credit. 😔

Nice family resort

The resort is well kept. There are peacocks and coati roaming the grounds, which was cool to see. The maid kept our room very clean and tidy. The towel animals were nice and the turn down service was a pleasant bonus. You don't always get that in large resorts. We were given a room in building 50 which is close to the pool and beach. The beach is well maintained and there was little seaweed. We enjoyed the kayaking, included with resort. We also paid extra for parasailing. This a third party activity but their location is right on the beach. There are plenty of beach chairs but the ones close to the shore get reserved fast. I'm an early riser so I was able to get up and out by 7 to enjoy coffee on the beach and select chairs for my family. The pool chairs seem to get reserved a bit quicker than the beach. However, there are plenty of chairs and if you go to the pool after 2, most morning people have left; leaving more chair options to be available. There are many "sections" to the pool. The swim up bar is where all the pool activities are held. It's crowded and noisy there. If you want more space and little quieter atmosphere then choose one of the two ends of the pool. The wave pool is nice but I think the waves should come on a little more often. There is wave schedule posted near the pool but it didn't seem like that schedule was followed. There a plenty of lay and sit down hammocks near the pool. We were able to sit or lay at will. There is a store that sells pool floats and gear. The prices are inflated so I suggest bringing your own from home. We brought our floats and am glad we did. Totally worth making room in your luggage. The buffets were fine. Not terrible but not great. We tried a buffet at each restaurant. Our least favorite was the one near the pool. I did like the caviar and my mate liked the omelette station. It's difficult to book restaurants you want for the time and day you want, so be flexible or try to book prior to arrival. We only ate at Jambalaya, "cajun" restaurant. It was not good. I ordered a blackened chicken with sausage in cream sauce. The "sausage" was hot dogs, the same served on the buffet. My boyfriend ordered jambalaya that was no more than rice in tomato sauce. We ended up picking over the food and then eating crepes and ice cream at the crepe shop; which was delicious. My 7 year old son loved the kids club. They have a schedule of activities from day to night. My son went to kids club when my mate and I took part in beach activities that he wasn't old enough to do. When I went to pick up my son, he was having so much fun in kids club he didn't want to leave. The star friends do a good job keeping the kids entertained. The hotel entertainment was nice. The shows at the theater for kids at 8 pm and at 9 pm for all were nice. The magician was really good. The resort is large so there is a lot of walking. We didn't mind because we tend to walk as a choice in our everyday life. However, if your prefer there are stops along to catch a resort shuttle and if you're in a hurry to make an appointment for excursion pick up, your building concierge will call a shuttle for you. Dislikes: The electricity went out for a few hours in the morning for two days. I understand it was related to something outside the resorts control but it was uncomfortable and inconvenient. However, the resort worked to keep what amenities they could available while the electricity was serviced. I was told I received a $100 usd hotel credit with my booking to use for golf or spa treatment or other hotel extras. I wasn't informed this was only honored if I attended a timeshare seminar. I wouldn't have wasted my time or set my expectations had the timeshare seminar been disclosed at booking. Though, I will say Carlos was kind and not pushy when I told him we weren't interested. He did a good job trying to "sell" us on attending the breakfast timeshare meeting and if I wasn't already familiar with this scheme I may have attended. So good job to Carlos on his pitch.Overall the family really enjoyed our vacation. If we were one to make return trips, we would come back again. However, we like to travel to different locations yearly and if we do revisit a destination, we tend to book somewhere different to try out. I would definitely recommend this place for families. I don't know that I would for couples because there are a lot of kids around but it really depends on your preference.
