    An amazing week at Paraiso Maya !!!

    This was our first time in the Iberostar Paraiso Mays Resort and it has turned out to be everything that we have expected and more. The resort is huge…so be prepared to get lost few times before you figure it out. We spend some time discovering the grounds which were spectacular. There is a shopping mall, a convention centre,FIT and FUN Gym that offers a variety of classes and four other resorts which are unique and worth visiting. The food in the restaurants was not the greatest but certainly not bad. We ate in four of the a la carte restaurants: El Rancho (steak), La Geisha (Japanese), El Fogon (Italian), and L’Etoile (French). El Rancho was our favorite. You must make reservations to dine at the a la carte restaurants. There was a bar and grill on the beach. It wasn’t fancy but all very good. The coffee shop Starcafe-Maya in the lobby was excellent. Each morning and afternoon we had stopped there for cappuccinos which were great. They also had pastries (our favourite – blackforrest cake and fruit tart), cupcakes, and sandwiches. The staff was very pleasant, professional and helpful throughout the resort. Special shout outs and thank you to Ami (super pleasant customer service in both El Rancho and L’Etoile who always greeted us with a huge smile and a big hug); Cory (an awesome concierge, who always looked happy to see us); Jhonny (an amazing and super attentive waiter at El Rancho who made our dinners special). We will most definitely be back at the Paraiso Maya Resort!!!

    3rd time back

    We have been to a lot of resorts in this area and must say this is this the best. We have spent a lot of money at all adult and very expensive resorts but the last 3 times to this area we have gone here. We enjoy quality and good customer service. The food and staff are absolutely amazing. The place is huge with so much to see and do. People that make this place great 1)Fillberto - pool bar This guy is a very hard worker. He put up with very mean people. He always had a smile and was very nice to everyone. I know his job was very demanding and was sweating his whole shift. Gets my best in show! 2)Yonaton- concierge Very helpful. Made sure i said hello every time in the lobby 3)Rodolfo- lobby bar night Very good at cocktail making and conversation. Always made us welcome when we came through. 4)Raul- transportation Always a great smile. Make our day when leaving and returning to maya. 5)augusto- sommelier He knows wines and people. 6)Jonnny- lobby bar day One the reasons we came back. Met him at the wave pool bar last year. Outstanding at cocktail making and extremely personable. This is the first person we tried to find upon returning. Lucky to have this great guy at maya Last I must mention that having don Julio reposado at every bar is one of the reasons for our return. We are huge drinkers and like quality. Having a great tequila was a key decision on coming back. Gracias a nuestros amigos en Iberostar!

    Excellent - but coati stole bread from my beach bag

    Family of 4 just returned home from a 7 days stay at Iberostar Maya. Everything was excellent: clean and big junior suite room, amenities for kids, adults, lots of pools (wave pool, lazy river, water park for small children) beautiful beach (not so beautiful sea - not much seaweed but water not very clear), good food, very nice shopping center. The only thing that bothered me it was that one day, in the evening before preparing to return to room, one coati went in my beach bag on the pool chair and stole a bread bun. Very funny moment for the kids, but after the incident I was worried about the risk of the coati carrying rabies as my bag was full with the kids clothes and other things. I was assured by our concierge, who called the medical service, that the coatis population in the resort is controlled and that they are vaccinated. Beside this issue, a very family oriented resort. I would come back for the people (always smiling), but not sure if I want to see again the coatis roaming free through the resort (even though I like animals and I heard they are protected by the government and they are all over Riviera Maya resorts, they are still wild and I am worried about the potential danger).

    Great hotel

    It’s a huge Hotel with great service and customer service. 25 minutes away from the airport. The food is amazing in almost all the restaurants the have, but all the places inside the hotel are a little bit apart so to have to walk at least 5 or 10 minutes to reach something. If you want some snack, you have to walk to the beach (that’s the only place), this is a huge opportunity to improve. I’ll return in the future!

    Why is the Maya is a great choice?

    1. Exceptionally friendly and helpful staff that goes over and above most other hotels and resorts. Lack of Spanish fluency is rarely an issue and I am language challenged 2. Safe - I and my family have never felt ill at ease & nothing was ever missing from the room. Security is visible and they also have an on sight medical facility that is much more than a first aid station & staffed by English speakers. 3. Family oriented with a fantastic state of the art "Kids Club". Your children will not want to leave it. Activities are all day long if you and the kids desire it. 4. Rooms - quiet, spacious, well appointed, comfortable beds, plenty of hot water with good pressure. Excellent maid service. 5. Facilities - large main pool that is the center of activity during the day, wave pool for the kids (adults love it also) two smaller side pools and a spa (extra charge & worth it) with the normal steam, sauna, hot tubs, and a large indoor salt water pool with massage sprays. 6. Food is good & plentiful at both the buffets and restaurants with great service 7. Resort is large enough so that you never feel crowded and small enough that everything is within walking distance.
