A part of the large Iberostar complex, the Iberostar Paraiso Lindo is an excellent 4 1/2 star hotel with large pools and a great beach with tons of palapas. Gourmet food and a huge 27,000 sq. ft. spa. The resort offers free shuttles as well. Great for couples, singles and families who want lots of amenities.

Great resort, top service but very busy beach. Recommended!

Very large resort, beautifully maintained and top marks for staff. Some significant weeds on beach on our last two days (traveled Mar 19-26). I summarize with pros and cons:Pros- large, beautiful resort and very very clean. - great room, bed, AC, everything- service, friendly attentive staff. Concierge at every building.- spa a nice treat- many pools, including a wave pool and a lazy river. Lots to do in water for all ages. Main pool is party central from noon to 5 pm everyday.- Buffet food was good and varied although not spectacular. - Specialty restaurants very good. Japanese and Gourmet recommended - entertainment was typical but quite good for a resort, with a large cast of talented singers and dancers. Rock night in particular was very good.. - 7 straight days of perfect weather Cons: - Paraiso Beach @ Lindo relatively small for immense size of resort and number of guests. - people snagging chairs as early as 6 am and using them only a few times, leaving towels all day. Typical problem at most resorts unfortunately. Everyone does it because if you don't, you simply don't get a chair until late afternoon!- No hot tub or whirlpool (one round whirlpool in middle of main pool but it was not heated. - Lazy river so lazy folks had to paddle to make their tube move. Could never find a free tube anyway.

Didn't enjoy this vacation

We are still here at Iberostar Paraiso Lindo. We are not very pleased. This is our 15th or so vacation to Caribbean and this is the most disappointing. Like you we've read the reviews and we thought the place was going to be great and we were looking forward to it. It's true the grounds are beautiful the pools are nice and clean, the rooms are really nice as well. But the food it's the worst we've ever experienced in all the places we've been. You may think that we are too picky and you're not going there for the food, but trust me it's actually important. Same thing for breakfast, lunch and dinner and if at least it was good and tasty I would say it's ok at least it's good, but it's not. If you want to eat pasta, sandwiches, pizza and recycled food from breakfast to dinner or from one restaurant to another... then you're all set. My husband just had over cooked pork chops for breakfast.... I just skipped it. It's not even worth it. I was looking forward to eggs and bacon and sausages and fruit and all the good stuff you think you'll eat for breakfast... but no... very very poor food choices. This is the worst culinary experience we've encounter in a all inclusive resort. We are booked at the specialty restaurants from the remaining of the holiday for dinner anyway so hopefully there it's better. The chairs around the pool and beach they are reserved from 6 am and if you wake up at 8am there are no more. We've been to other resorts where they were reserved but here it just seems that are way too many people and not enough chairs. The beach it's beautiful but so far we still have to get a day where we actually can enjoy the sea. It's been really rough and full of seaweed. If you want to be allowed in all the restaurants book at Maya. They told us that going to Lindo we are allowed everywhere but it's not true. You have to be at Maya. Anyway we have 3 more days of very bad food at least for breakfast and lunch. I hope we can enjoy dinner. Oh, and tomorrow we have to wake up at 6 am to get some chairs around the pool....as I said we are not very pleased with this holiday. Please think very well before booking.Cheers!

Great stay at the Lindo

Just back from a 7 day stay at this resort. No complaints food was good, rooms were clean and the beach was pristine if a little rocky in the water. Beach shoes helped. Internet connection was stellar and staff were friendly and helpful. If you are a late riser getting a shady spot at beach or pool can be a challenge. Took advantage of the offer to visit Iberostar in Playa del Carmen which was amazing. I love the way the resort incorporates nature, water and many eye pleasing archictural structures and sculptures to entertain and to wow guests. I would suggest on weekends to open the sports bar before 5 pm for the entertainment of the premier league soccer fan and baseball fan. This was my 14th visit to Mexico mostly to Riu Palaces and Bahai Principe luxury resorts and this was for me the most enjoyable. Thanks to the reviewer who recommended building 51 or 53. We had a room in building 53 which was great for us.

Good resort, but not during spring break

We stayed at this resort from March 14th to March 21st. The resort is nice. Room was acceptable for two people. The staff, waitors and bar tenders were excellent. It is a good get-a-way location. They appeared to do and excellent job with families travelling with children. Many shows geared towards kids. The food was good but much more of a buffet style than a sit down restaurant. Even if you made reservations, the menus had appetizers, main course choices and deserts, but appetizers and deserts were in the buffet bar, not servered to you and the choices in the menu were not always at the buffet bar. Breakfast and lunch were only buffet style. But we also went during Spring Break. Lots of kids pretending to be adults, since the drinking age in Mexico is 18. These childern were rude, walking on the bars at the swim up pool because they did not want to get wet. We did mention this to the bar tender and he said, those crazy kids. Six out of Seven nights we were awaken one to three times a night by people going back to their rooms, screaming and swearing, normally between 2 and 4 AM. Its never a good mix to give 18 to 20 year olds unlimited access to alcohol. At least they were not driving.

Jesus giving us the towels and Patricia who helped us find our way with smiles.The food was great and the waiters we had were all so funny with there jokes. The service was excellent. We will be back.
