Best Pool Ever!
donnapersino, Des Plaines
Thu Feb 04 08:49:46 EST 2016
The place is part of a five Iberostar complex, the Del Mar is the lowest. BUT, it had a great pool. Let's face it, Iberostar knows what they're doing. The place is clean, rooms are clean and spacious and the food is great. You can't beat the price. You can certainly pay more and stay at the other resorts, but if you want an affordable week by a beautiful pool this is your place. Received a day pass at the Lido and a round of golf for going through their timeshare "it's not a timeshare" presentation. The program is interesting, if you like Iberostar/timeshares. Otherwise, say no and enjoy a round of golf ($150) on them. The presentation was about 3 hrs long with breakfast at the Grand (you get to see how the other half lives). Little things -- Better signage at the buffet would be helpful, but who cares, be adventurous -- try something new! Don't complain about the steakhouses, they do a great job. If you want a great steak go to Morton's Steakhouse not Mexico! More>

Having read reviews before our vacation, we were a little concerned about our choice of resort. We were pleasantly surprised by the Iberostar Paraiso Del Mar. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, the grounds colourful, gorgeous and well maintained and the pool was fabulous, going on and on forever. We were in the building closest to the lobby, facing the main area and theatre and there was never any problem with noise. The room was your typical hotel room with king bed, air conditioner, TV, fridge and safe but again clean and comfortable. The shower was hot and strong and ice was available right around the corner. You couldn't go hungry there. The two buffets were huge with great variety and different offerings every meal. There were also six a la carte restaurants. You were allowed to make three reservations over a 7 day stay. We tried the Japanese, the Italian and the Mediterranean. Food and service was good.at all of them. There were also snack bars by the pool and on the beach and never a shortage of Mexican dishes. Finally, at the shopping centre there was a café, a place for ice cream and crepes and a great taco shop. The tacos were fresh, delicious and all three places were part of the all inclusive package. The beach was big with nice soft sand and had life guards. You could walk quite a distance both ways. Activities around the pool (great gelato) and on the beach were varied and fun. The entertainment staff were engaging and quite talented. The evening entertainment was enjoyable. There is a three times a day shuttle to Playa del Carmen for $5 US per person each way if you want to go into town. No, this property is not high end. The amenities are all there but not top of the line. Booze is plentiful, the drinks inventive and varied and the wine drinkable (ask them to open a bottle of cava for you) but not top shelf. Food is good and fresh but not gourmet. They try hard and for the price, it was a thoroughly enjoyable vacation and I would recommend it to anyone who wants some time in the sun. More>

great resort with bad alchol selection

The resort was nice. Very big with multiple pool bars and a great beach. Staff was very friendly. The food was ok. You had to check to make sure the meat was fully cooked though. The Alcohol selection was not good though. NO Corona or Modelo at all in the resort!!!!!!!!! How do you go to Mexico and not have a Corona?!?! Also, there was no irish whiskey, spiced rum, flavored vodka, Jack Daniels....I could go on forever. The wine at the restaurants that was included was like bad grape juice. Undrinkable! But the wine selection you could buy by the bottle was good. More>

We LOVE Iberostar!

This hotel is a wonderful place for people of all ages. The staff is very helpful and extremely friendly. The entire property is very clean and absolutely beautiful! The entertainment staff is AMAZING! Manuel and Rigo are two of the best! They always make our vacation perfect and treat us like family! There are always activities and things to do throughout the day. Rodrigo is the best bartender at the pool, along with Geraldo. Omar, Roger, and Luis down at the beach do a great job also! They always make tasty drinks! :) Marko and Raul are the best bellboys around and are always there when you need them. The public relation staff is great too. Yeya (Mirella) is one of the friendliest and best in her department! Overall this hotel is fantastic! I have been at this resort over 10 times and couldn't imagine going anywhere else. The beach and pool are beautiful and the resort has a perfect beachy feel! Iberostar is the best! More>

This hotel is an amazing place for all. You can go for a get away, family vacation or to just hand out with friends, you can't ask for a better destination. This resort has the best staff you will encounter. They are very accommodating and always have a smile on their faces. Entertainment staff works hard to make your vacation the best it can be. Food and drinks are also great. If you don't have an amazing vacation, then there is something wrong. Highly recommend - five stars! More>
