We have younger kids that are very active and I was disappointed that we could do the bike tour or the shooting activities. You had to be fourteen. Are you kidding me, the hotel claims to be family oriented? Not sure about that. There are only 3 plugs in the the room to charge stuff and it took forever to get something charged. The food was ok. Many times I went to get plate and they were dirty. I will probably not go back to this hotel.

Beach needs cleanup ( seaweeds), customer service rep, front desk needs more training, more approachable. Jonathan in Iberostar Paraiso Lindo ( supervisor) is amazing. Food needs more selection and should not serve lunch food on the evening, no evening show that will attract the client. Brazilian restaurant taste nasty. Fitness is high end and love it.

The Iberostar Parasio Linda is very nice and huge resort having excellent transportation electric cars so getting to any hotel features were not a problem. However, my wife and I did not use it because we like to walk. The main thing was the beach for us as we never use pools and like to swim in natural salted ocean waters. One thing to keep in mind that if you want to get the beach chairs under a umbrella, you should come to the beach at least before 8:20 am as after like 9:00 am you won't find available places. Food was excellent with very tasty dishes like smoke salmon in a croissant sandwich every morning and much more food items that you usually can't get in most resorts like good quality fishes not the cheap ones. We were pleased with room near the beach (building #51), however, this is actually old hotel and need some updated stuff like modern LCD TVs, the light fixtures must be replaced and secured as some of them were just barely holding in places. They did not build elevators in their buildings, so if you are on the 3-rd floor, it could be some challenge to walk up to your room after the whole day of activities. One thing for sure is the staff is very pleasant and friendly trying to help you as much as they can. We liked the resort and are thinking to come back next year.

Al of the star we came in contact with were very friendly. Our concierge Ana was awesome! She did everything she could to get our dinner times we wanted & help us with any requests! Love her! Our Maid Claudia did an amazing job of keeping our room clean & making sure we had all we needed. Miguel at the one swim up bar was always on top of his game! One of the other bartenders Alejandro even remembered us & my husbands name from last year! Now that's impressive with the volume of people they seen in a year. The food was good at the buffets & all of the specialty restaurants. Our favorites are the Steak House & the Japanese. We did those twice! I don't have a bad word to say about the hotel, staff, or the food! Great experience as always. We have stayed there 9 times!

My husband and I celebrated our honeymoon with Iberostar Paraiso Lindo. The staff was phenomenal, especially Nestor and Alba. The restaurants were delicious. The only gripe we had was that this resort is set up more for families with kids than just couples. A majority of the activities were set up for kids and the pool area was not really a place to relax with children running and splashing everywhere. Next time we would definitely choose to pick the Grande of Iberostor because we love the people of the resort but we don't want to be surrounded by all of the kids.

Our room was good, rained 80% of the time there, The staff was amazing. special thanks to Cesar, our morning waiter, he was always there, going out of his way for anything and everything we needed. Because of the weather we only did 1 excursion, Aventuras Mayas, ATV - Cave swimming - Zip Lining, Violet was the young lady that helped set this up for us and got us all taken care of for our journey to the jungle,our guides were Federico and Jesus these 2 guys were amazing, we had a large group and they were right there with us all at every turn. I really can't say enough about the people that work at or with this facility, I only wish that I had the names of all the people that helped to make our stay so memorable.

Highly recommended

We stayed eight nights at this hotel. It was me, my husband and our six year old daughter. It was wonderful. When we first arrived, we were given a very nice room in a building near the beach and just next to the restaurant where you eat breakfast and lunch. I cannot say enough good things about the food and the service. You can get top shelf alcohol here, it's included. The food is top-notch, they have filet mignon, lamb chops at restaurants, three or four different types of fish even at the buffet. Our daughter loved the kids club. You can drop off your child at 9 a.m. and pick them up at 10:30 pm. Of course we never left her there all day, but theoretically you can. They do a lot of fun things with them, different contests, games, pool , beach, etc. They also take them to lunch and dinner. There is a kid show that all the kids can participate in, and their daughter loved the talent show. The main shows at night are wonderful. The magic show was our favorite. The room was very large, we also had a large balcony. The pools are amazing, the beach is wonderful. Yes, there is a lot of seaweed, but we didn't care. The water is great on the beach, you can swim in the waves. The water sports are wonderful, but because of high waves most of the time you cannot take out the catamaran. We only took it out one time. It is included in the cost. Main highlight of the trip were the tennis lessons with Peter! What an amazing coach. I was so surprised to have such quality coaching at this Resort. Also, if you ever go to the gym, they have an amazing brand new gym with classes all morning everyday. Truly amazing. You can also do archery classes, darts, bicycles. There is so much to do here. I can say with confidence that we will be back. The place is beautiful. We really had a great time and relaxed. Another thing that we really loved about this hotel is that there are no disposable cups, straws, or plates. This makes a huge difference in the environment. I really support this and I'm encouraged to see it in Mexico. I wish all the resorts were like this. The beach is much cleaner because of it.

PERFECT Wedding Celebration at the Lindo!

We just returned from an amazing week at the Iberostar Paraiso Lindo June 5-12. My daughter and her fiance were married on the beach followed by a cocktail hour with mariachi band and private beach reception. The officiant arranged through our wedding planner was great--She was very easy to understand and delivered a heartfelt and humorous (at times) ceremony. Everything (ceremony, cocktail hour and reception setup) was absolutely beautiful, and our wedding planner Mireya Alvarez could not have been more professional, helpful, friendly and WONDERFUL. She handled everything from start to finish, and it was PERFECT!!! She immediately answered all questions and assured us everything was under control. The bride's bouquet, corsages and boutonnieres and all of the other flowers looked beautiful for all aspects of the ceremony and reception. We contracted with Adventure Photos through Iberostar for the video and photography, and while we have not received the video or all of the photos yet, the photos we did see were absolutely amazing! Vicktor was our photographer, and he was a pleasure to work with--so professional, friendly, and easy-going, yet he didn't miss a moment. We cannot say enough about our experience, and would highly recommend the Iberostar Paraiso Lindo, Mireya and Vicktor. The DJ service (also contracted through the hotel) was top notch. The music really had the wedding party and guests dancing the night away from start to finish! Food was a Mexican buffet since we were in Mexico, and everyone raved it was delicious. Wedding cake was also AMAZING!! Since we had a private beach reception, we were allowed to use the semi private dinner in a restaurant for our rehearsal, and that worked perfectly as well--we selected the Steakhouse for that, and the food and service was terrific.

A Different Perspective (10 Years Later)

I visited the Iberostar Paraiso Lindo waaaaay back in October 2008, and just completed my second trip to this resort (now 10 years later). The Lindo was my very first experience with an all-inclusive back then and I had absolutely loved it. Now, 10 years later and a few other resorts under my belt, I felt I needed to come back and re-review the Lindo. I must disclose that my entire trip was affected by last week's Tropical Storm, so I will do my best to review the resort itself and not the awful weather. First off: I was travelling with my sister and teenage nephew. At the time of booking, the Junior Suite was the only room option. Although it was noted on the booking that the room would come with 1 King bed OR two doubles, we indicated during booking that there would be two adults & a 17-year old staying in the room. At check-in, we were assigned a room with ONE bed. No pullout couch, just one king bed. For the 3 of us. We were told that no 2-bed junior suite would be available until the 3rd (of 5) night of our stay. I requested to downgrade our reservation to a standard room, assuming we could get 2 beds in the meantime. Instead, the front desk staff decided to keep us in our 1-bed room and said they'd bring us two rollaways. The room had a shower (with poor protection from spraying all over the bathroom floor), a hairdryer, a safe, a stocked mini fridge, a balcony, and an alarm clock that couldn't keep proper time. It also had ceiling fans and air conditioning, but the A/C wasn't working properly, as it would turn itself on & off every 15 seconds or so. On our 3rd night, the room next door to ours (with two beds) became available, so we were switched to that room. We reminded the front desk staff that we still needed one of the rollaway beds (neither my sister nor I were planning on sharing a bed with each other or with my teenage nephew), but at 11:00pm when we returned to the room, the rollaway bed was still not there. We waited up for about an hour for the staff to bring that and set it up so we could go to bed. This "new" room was worse than the first. The shower still leaked all over the bathroom floor, the safe did not work and hotel security needed to come up to our room to fix it, the A/C didn't go below 22 degrees Celsius and kept turning itself on & off every few seconds, and there was no clock or alarm clock in the room at all. Additionally, the mini fridge wreaked of mildew and there was mold around the inside corners. Needless to say, we did not drink the beverages included in the mini fridge. But, at least I now had a bed. Due to the nonstop rain we got, and with the Lindo being an open-air resort, the staff could not keep up with the flooding in most of their walkways. They were constantly squeegeeing the main walkways, but the common areas of each building were left untouched and flooded. The resort floors are extremely slippery, as you'd expect of wet marble, but due to the standing water and constant rain, they were nothing short of treacherous. I saw multiple people slipping. Although the rain wasn't the hotel's fault, the fact that there were no safe walkways sure was. I was happy with the selection of beer, wine & alcohol on the resort, and surprised to see many top shelf liquors included. I don't recall these top-shelf options being available on my last visit, but it was a nice. By the 3rd day or so, our group was "over it" with the buffet food. Although there are a lot of options, they're 99% identical from one day to the next, so eating at the buffet gets old. On the other hand, if you can secure a reservation to a specialty restaurant, I HIGHLY recommend the Japanese restaurant. We also ate at the Gourmet (which I found to be so-so), the Mexican (also just OK) and the steakhouse (great cut of meat!). Be sure to pack something other than bathing suits/jeans/cutoff shorts to wear to the specialty restaurants. I still have nothing but positive things to say about the staff- their professionalism, their friendliness, their hardwork, etc.- impressive! And the pools at the Iberostar Paraiso are fantastic! I don't think you'd find another wave pool or lazy river at any other resort. And, of course, the ice cream shop above the swim-up bar is a great touch! Now that I've visited this particular resort twice (and Iberostar resorts three times in total), I've decided that it's time to move on and try some other brands.

We were upgraded to Lindo at a very reasonable price

If you go to Iberostar Riviera Maya, go to Lindo. Hotel is great. We stayed at paraiso beach before and it is worlds apart in service to lindo. Food is better, drinks are better. Excellent kids club. Our kids did not want to leave the club. Nothing but praise.
