Nice resort with lots to do, but some not so great changes have been made in the last year.
Brooke M,

We have stayed at the Iberostar Lindo hotel for the last 6 years. I have been traveling to Mexico almost every year ever since I was married in Mexico 14 years ago. I have stayed at a lot of different places in the Cancun and Playa del Carmen area. The Iberostar has been one of our favorite places to vacation since we first stayed there 6 years ago. We were not able to go to Iberostar last year due to an illness in our family but we returned for our 6th year this year. I first of all have to tell you all the great things about the Iberostar Lindo. The buildings, pools and grounds are clean and well maintained, They have non stop fun entertainment for the whole family, The beach is beautiful with great access to the ocean and the staff is Incredible! honestly the biggest reason we go back each year is because we have gotten to know the staff very well over the last 6 years and they are awesome! One of the new things I really liked this year was the sports bar that they opened behind the main lobby bar. The bartender that was there most nights is named Rudolfo and he is the best bartender I have ever had at any resort I have ever gone to. His excellent customer service skills go above and beyond what you could expect from any bartender. He alone is a big reason that we have gone back to the Iberostar year after year. The only thing that could make the new sports bar even better would be if they added some pool tables in there or some type of activity that you could do while you are enjoying your drinks in the sports bar, that alone would be a huge selling point for my husband. Now some of the not so great changes that I noticed this year. Things seem to be run a little differently this year, which I really noticed since I had not been there last year, so it had been two years since we had visited and I could tell things were being run differently and then I found out that the ownership/management changed from some other guests and a manager that we met while at the hotel. The food did not seem as good this year as it had been in past years. The pancakes and waffles at the breakfast buffet tasted like play dough, as my 6 year old niece pointed out, and the overall food at the buffets was not as good of quality as it had been in the past. The food at the restaurants was good, with the exception of the steak restaurant at the Lindo which I did not think had very good cuts of meat. It took about 25 chews for me to swallow one piece of medium rare steak. I don't know if they changed the cooking oil they used or not but all of the fried foods had the same weird flavor to me, I was pretty disappointed with the food this year I must say. I was also a little disappointed with the music that was played at the Galaxy disco. It has been a tradition of ours to go to the Galaxy Disco club every night that we are on vacation at the Iberostar with our friends and family. We usually have a group of about 20 that travel with us. We go there and dance and try out new dance moves and laugh and have a blast. This year we would get about 3 or 4 songs that we knew (American) but they were never like top music from today's hits, they are all like older songs that were popular like 5+ years ago and they would alternate playing about 3-4 american songs and then like 3-4 Latin or south american songs that I had never heard of, and I have listed to a lot of Latin music over the years but some of these songs were just weird. It was almost like they had been told by someone that they had to play equal amounts of american music and Latin music. I understand that they need to cater to people from all different parts of the world but one night we were literally the only people in the disco, just our group of Americans and they kept doing the same rotation of music, 3 american songs, 3 Latin songs, on more than one night the dance floor was full of people when the american music came on and then when the Latin songs came on everyone would leave the floor because no one had ever heard of them but they would keep the same weird rotation going. It was just weird a good DJ should be playing music that is keeping the crowd and dance floor pumped and entertained but like I said it seemed like maybe management said to the DJ, you need to alternate, if you play 3 american songs you need to play 3 latin songs to keep things balanced. It was not good and really put a damper on a lot of the nights that we had planned on hanging out at the disco because we just left earlier than usual since the music was not the best. I was also a little disappointed because as I mentioned before it was our 6th year staying at the Iberostar and some of the other people in our group had also stayed there 6 years with us and some of the people in our group it was their first year staying there. Almost everyone in our group got something special brought to their room on one or more occasions either a fresh fruit plate or a bottle of tequila which was very nice. We never received anything in our room and we were kind of disappointed since we had been going there the last 6 years it would have been nice for them to keep track of who has been returning each year so they can give you a welcome back gift or something like that. I felt kind of bad that other people that had only been there one or two years were getting fresh fruit plates every day and we didn't even get a "Thank you for coming back" Card. I normally would have given this resort a 5 star rating prior to my experience this year but unfortunately I feel like it has kind of slipped a little since the last time I was there in the level of quality and service that we had come to expect from Iberostar. I just got home last week but I am actually leaving again next week to go back to Mexico on vacation again, we LOVE Mexico! This time I am taking my family to the Barcelo Palace. I wanted to be able to compare the two resorts one right after the other while the experience is still fresh in my head so that if things are considerably nicer at the Barcelo palace then I can bring my large group there next year instead of the Iberostar Lindo. I'll leave a review regarding the Barcelo once I return from there in Mid March.

My husband and I spend 5 nights at the Lindo. It was way better that we were expecting. Everything from the food, service, staff, pools and beach were amazing. The only negative I can think of is when the AC unit would turn on it was quite loud and wake me up. Since this was our first trip without our 2 young children we planned on just sitting and relaxing the whole time. When talking with out transportation again Ivan with Olympus, he suggested we take a look at the different snorkeling options. He was not at all pushy but just explained how beautiful it was outside of the resort also. I am so glad we ending up going on the snorkeling trip. Ivan set everything up for us and all we had to do was meet at the lobby when he said. He was even there to send us off and make sure to say "have a great time". We will defiantly be back!

Communication gap is an issue, food was average, issues with getting misinformation about resort. Common answer was go to the front desk. Bartenders were excellent and the best experience with staff. Thank you

This is my second visit to iberostsr playa parisio. Last year we stayed at the beach. Had a wonderful time. Decided to come back this year and upgraded to the Lindo. The service and activities are still great. The food is good. Not gourmet but good. I will not probably visit again because of one reason. Last year we had no problems finding chairs. This year is totally different. 80 percent of the chairs are empty with people's belongings on them. I know that the resort can not prevent this. But one thing the can do is purchase more chairs. I am writing this review as I am sitting on my towel in the sand after sitting at a table for 2 hours looking for people to give up their chairs. We did get one chair for me and my husband to share. We were not the only couple or family that could not find chairs. I would come back in an instant if they purchased more chairs so that the when people reserved chairs there is enough for everybody. For you you that reserve if everybody took their stuff if the where going to be gone for more than an half an hour. There would be a good rotation that everybody could have a chair when the were ready to relax. We loved our room 5443 and our maid Amelia

Another Amazing Iberostar Lindo Vacation

Just returned from another amazing vacation at the Lindo. Stayed in bldg 53, room 83, which is centrally located. Check-in and check-out were a breeze. We flew Alaska Airlines from BWI via Apple Vacations. We love staying here because we get more options: concierge, specialty restaurant every night, wave pool, lazy river. Iberostar is our go-to resort.
