The best entertainment team in the world!

We are a family of four from England and this was our third stay at this beautiful hotel, having previously stayed here in 2013 and 2016. We were celebrating our tenth wedding anniversary (we got married at the neighbouring Iberostar Paraiso Del Mar). We seemed to have an even better time this year than previously, for various reasons....a better room, trying different restaurants, the new sports bar and having more involvement with the amazing Starfriends, which I will come back to....We requested a top floor room in Block 53 and were lucky enough to get one. Room 5384 where we had stayed 4 years previously, with a spacious corner balcony with views over the wave pool. It also had a new walk-in shower. The location of the room was perfect for us to nip back from the pool for anything we had forgotten.The "bed police" as we called them were hard at work every morning at the pools. Sunbed hogging has always been an issue at this resort - people reserving beds at the crack of dawn and not turning up after breakfast, while other people struggle to find beds for the rest of the day. Personal belongings won't be removed but the blue Iberostar towels will be. During the second week, the bed police were like parking wardens, noting the times that the beds were unattended and placing a sticky label to the laminated card hooked onto the palapa. We were told that guests were allowed an hour away from the beds before belongings would be removed. There didn't seem to be a lot of consistency with the policy but use your common sense and be aware! No one wants sunbed wars on holiday.The new Star Rock cafe (Corner) is similar to the one at the Del Mar, showing sports and serving food but with a more limited menu. It opens at 5pm and starts serving food at 6pm. The staff were great - Rodolfo and Angelica. One night a magician came to the table and did some mind-blowing card tricks!We went to the shopping centre a couple of times, having tacos and ice-creams. I had a gel manicure at the spa, which I can highly recommend for 28USD. A beautiful setting with a lovely choice of refreshing juice drinks. We enjoyed the a la cartes as a nice alternative to the buffet. The Cajun will always be our favourite but we also enjoyed the Japanese, El Tapatio and La Hacienda (both Mexican) and the Italian. The service was always very good and the staff were very hard working and eager to please. I also must mention the excellent service at the pool bars. It was often very busy but the bar tenders did a great job, often remembering everyone's drinks, never leaving you waiting long to be served. The new app is very helpful to let you know each day's activities, shows, the restaurant menus etc. When we made reservations on the app, we asked the concierge to print the confirmation tickets for us and he told us not to bother with the app and that it is better to re-book with him! I don't know whether there were teething problems with the app or whether the concierges just like to have full control and ensure that they keep the work for themselves. Anyway, reservations were no problem and we were always able to get the restaurants we wanted at the times we wanted.Right from the beginning of the holiday, we spent a lot of time with the fabulous Starfriends. We knew Mayren, Gilmer, Tony and Israel from last year but were also pleased to make friends with Aaron, Charlie, Cristina, Jesus, Rodrigo, Rico, Javier, Yoshi, Jose-Luis, Sam and Moises. The more you get involved with the fun and entertainment, the more you will get out of it. We played bingo every day and often got involved in the activities, tournaments, games around the pool, as well as the pre-shows in the evenings. The starfriends helped us to celebrate our tenth anniversary, announcing it at the pool in the afternoon as well as calling us on stage that night to present us with a certificate, t-shirts and medals. Thank you Gilmer for organising this, and to the rest of the team for making it such a special day for us. We couldn't think of a better way to have celebrated than with all of you!The entertainment team, brilliantly managed by Gilmer, really are the heart and soul of the hotel. Iberostar are lucky to have them. They work long hours with very few days off, never complaining and always smiling, genuinely loving what they do. They are kind, caring people who we are truly grateful to and we miss dearly. We are pleased that we have stayed in touch with a few of them and hope to see them again in future. After three holidays, we have now experienced all the Lindo has to offer but we are stil likely to return one day. When we do, it will be because of the amazing time we had with the Starfriends and the special memories they gave us. I cannot thank them enough for an unforgettable holiday which we will reminisce about forever. I will continue to recommend the Lindo to family and friends. For us as a family, I don't think we could have a better holiday anywhere other than the Lindo! We think about it every day and we look forward to returning one day. Gracias y nos vemos!

Family Getaway

What a wonderful resort. My husband and I traveled with his parents and his sister and her husband. The accommodations were beautiful. The people were so welcoming and respectful and eager to assist in any way they could. My only complaint would be the front desk people. They were not very friendly whatsoever. It was a stark contrast between them and everyone else.We have visited Mexico over a dozen times, probably closer to 15. So, we are good people to compare the resorts. The pool was magnificent. You definitely had room to swim around and not feel crowded at all. One problem would be that if you weren't early, you didn't get choice seating. But we were okay with whatever was available to us. However, if you're young and want to be around all the excitement and games and music, I would suggest arriving early to stake your chairs. We just swam over to the games and pool bar and music, so I have no complaints there.The beach was a nice stretch. However, we were there from April 20th to the 27th, and the water had a lot of seaweed in it. That cannot be controlled by the resort, so I just chalked it up to the windy weather at the time. The temperature was great - very, very warm. However, if you're a beach walker, there's not much to walk, bc the beach in both directions gets kind of nasty! So, we were more than content to walk the property and stay in the pool area.Now the pool services a couple of their resorts. So, there are people from the other Iberostar resorts. There are 5 in total. I can't imagine the Grand guests using our facilities, but you never know, because over there is was so quiet! Not what we like.Next I'll talk about the food. I have always been a food critic at these places. There have been very few that I would say I truly enjoyed eating at. Most of the buffets in these all-inclusives just don't cut it. The same with their specialty restaurants. I think my favorite was the Riu Palace resorts. That is until this trip. The buffet was amazingly good. We had trouble getting reservations for 6 in the specialty restaurants, because our parents like to eat at 6 or 6:30, so we only ate at two. But we have no complaints about the food whatsoever. The quality was top notch. The temperature, which I always complain about at other resorts, was always what it should be. They were cooking up specialties at about 5 stations. The fruit selection and quality was fabulous. I didn't eat desserts much, bc I was always full, but they had quite a selection. The same with the breads, which I stayed away from. Each night they had different foods. They always had the staples available - burgers, spaghetti, tacos, fajitos, et cetera. They had unbelievable steaks they grilled up for you. Even the pre-grilled ones were melt-in-your-mouth delicious. I was totally blown away by it.We ate at the gourmet(French) restaurant. This was probably all of our least favorite meals. It just missed the mark and none of us could really say too much good about it. The steak restaurant on the other hand was great. I have never had steak in Mexico that I liked. This, however, changed my mind and everyone else's completely. They were cooked to perfection and flavored so well. Even the hamburgers were good. On two nights they had flavored homemade burgers.If you have children of any age, this is the resort for you. Oh my did they ever cater to the kids. We can't wait to return with our grandchildren so they too can enjoy this. Whether we can bring our grandchildren or not, we definitely will return to this resort and we have NEVER been to a resort twice. We always liked to try different places. This one, however, won us over.Just a note. Everyone except for me hated the mattresses. They are very soft. I love soft mattresses, so I slept great. The others however, complained of backache the whole time. I talked to others in the resort, and some said their beds were way too hard. So, I would suggest you try to request what you want. Although, I don't think the front desk would be too accommodating!

Relaxing Family Vacation

Overall, a really nice trip, would definitely go back to another Iberostar resort. The grounds were absolutely gorgeous, the pools were huge and the beach area was well kept. Went as a group of 9 - 4 adult, 5 teens 18, 17 and 14 during April break. Resort was pretty full but it didn't feel "crowded". Rooms:We had a king rooms and the kids had a double room with a roll in extra bed. The rooms were a good size housekeeping was very efficient. We left our maid $2 each day and every day our mini fridge was filled with what we asked for, we had cute towel animals on our bed and (in the adult room) rose petals on the bed and in the bathroom. She even left us nice little notes to have a nice day, and wished us safe travels the night before we checked out!Food:Overall the food was good to very good for an all inclusive. Booked 2 dinner reservations the week before we arrived - the Gourmet at the Lindo and the Japanese at the Del Mar (we could have done the Geisha at the Maya for $20 per person upcharge but didn't think it was necessary). When we arrived we booked the Italian and Steakhouse for dinner as well. The only night we couldn't get a reservation was our first night so we did the buffet. I think our favorite was the Gourmet - the lamb chops were great. I wasn't overly thrilled with the buffet for dinner, but it was okay. For breakfast thought the buffet was excellent - omelets or fried eggs to order, crepes, pancakes, churros, etc.- you get the point. We're not big lunch people so usually ate lunch on the beach - every day they had something cooking in a big pan on the beach, tacos or paella, as well as the snack shack. They also have the snacky shops at the shops at the commerce center. The tacos and crepes were very good, the burgers, not so much... Beach/Pool:We went down every morning around 8 to get chairs, and had no problem getting what we needed. My personal rule is to stay there once I'm down (except to get breakfast), not leave my stuff for 2+ hours. The security was out in full force on day 2 removing towels because people were just leaving towels and disappearing even though there are signs EVERYWHERE that say not to do this. If you had personal items, they were left alone, but towels only were removed. Overall we had a great trip. Last all inclusive I went to was adults only and there really is a difference in service, quality and noise, but until my youngest is 18 this will have to do. It was really nice, the kids had a blast and we'd definitely try Iberostar again.

  • Dreamer160ca :
Great resort!

All the staff is very friendly and most speak fairly good English. Been to Mexico twice now and this is a very good resort for the money. We stayed in the lindo. Heard the grand is a little nicer but quite a bit more expensive. Try the Japanese restaurant as it is excellent. Also make your way to Alux in playa del carmen for an elegant dinner. It is a cave restaurant with nice food and fantastic atmosphere. Ps. Tip your maid for superb service! Thanks again Maria!
