Great Family Vacation

The Iberostar Resort Complex is Riviera Maya has something for everyone. There are value resorts as well as luxury, all same the same long and beautiful beach. This trip we stayed in the Lindo. It shares the wave pool, the lazy river and all the pools with the Pariso Maya which is one step up. Every room in the Maya is a junior suite, so if you want that extra space, I would go with Maya. If not, Lindo costs less and you basically get the same pool and beach experience. There are plenty of bars and attendants so we never had to wait for a drink. Buffets were excellent. You need reservations for the Specialty Restaurants so try to do that as soon as you arrive to get times and restaurants you want. At Lindo and Maya you can do unlimited reservations, while at the lower end resorts you have a limited number of specialty restaurants. We did the Steak House, which was awesome, the Cajun Restaurant, which was okay and the Japanese Hibachi Experience, which was super fun and food was good. Download the app when you arrive to learn about all the activities and entertainment options available. There is a daily bike tour, which is free and super fun. they also have a really cool Star War's themed night club. Kids use it until 9:30 and then it turns into an adult night club. Don't forget about the Buffet for dinner as well. Lots of choice and food is really good. You can even eat at a Specialty restaurant and then go to the main buffet for dinner. The only negative I can say about the resort is the quality of the food at the Beach Grill. It was terrible, but everything else was really great.

Superb Resort

It was the most beautiful resort we had the chance of experiencing. The food was excellent, the service beyond reproach and the activities were very entertaining. We were there for two weeks with temps between 82 and 87F. We strongly suggest this spot for anyone, very family oriented. We must mention an individual who was of great help to us, his name is Pech from the club, at the main lobby he was our first contact.Great vacation.

We booked this hotel because they advertised a lazy river and a wave pool. The so called lazy river didn't flow. In fact the water hardly moved at all. The only way to get around walk . The wave pool , when in action never even went up to your knees and that was only on one side of the pool. Now the food which was one of the main reasons we always go All Inclusive. Breakfast was the highlight of the day. Plenty of choice, apart from the fact the guy cooking the fried eggs constantly kept breaking the eggs. The evening meal had very little choice, food was never hot and the sweet dishes we all very bland. We visited the Iberostar Beach hotel in 2008 and had a great time. Food was excellent so thought we'd upgrade for our 2018 visit. What a big mistake that was.

Best kids resort in Mexico!

Best kids resort in Mexico!

Everything about this resort was perfect! First of all for the parents they have the 24hr coffee shop with lattes, cappuccinos, and all the sweet treats. The bars and waitstaff are eager to please and the drinks and alcohol selection is excellent. The buffet food is amazing with lots of selection and quality offerings; prime rib, sirloin roast, tacos, sushi, pasta, pizza, local and international fish, pad thai, ribs, salad bar, bread bar and dessert bar. There are numerous a la cartes as well and booking is seamless through the concierge located in each building. The kids have endless things to do; wave pool, lazy river, pirate ship water park, and kids club. The kids club is brand new and absolutely phenomenal with indoor and outdoor playgrounds, trampoline room, gaming consoles, stage with costumes and even a DJ booth for the older kids. Everything is clean and safe and staff are excellent both in the kids club and all over the resort, they'll make you and your kids feel like royalty, especially the highly energetic entertainment team, I dont think they even sleep! The grounds, pools and common areas are absolutely immaculate and manicured to perfection. Even the wildlife love this place with birds, coati and capybara wandering about for all to enjoy.

Excellent Family Vacation Spot
Reviewed 4 days ago

My family and I just returned from a 5 day vacation at the Iberostar Paraiso Lindo. Overall we had a great time and I would recommend this resort. The Iberostar complex is in a great location less than a 30 minute drive south of the Cancun airport and only a few minutes from Playa del Carmen. This is a truly all-inclusive resort with many restaurant options and several bars. My family of 4 stayed in a "family suite" which was basically 2 adjoining rooms - 1 with a king sized bed and the other with 2 doubles. It was a typically decorated room with tile floors, colorful walls and wood doors and furniture. The rooms are a little dated but the beds were very comfortable and the towel were really plush. I wish there was a mirror in the room.
Overall it met our needs. My main complaint is we could never get our room cold enough. Maintenance came and turned the AC down for us but it still never cooled off completely. And, the AC in my kids' room kept going out. I like the room cold when I sleep and the room was always a little to warm and humid. I guess I'm spoiled with my AC at home as this is a common theme for me when I review hotels outside of the U.S. Also, we had a garden view room facing the lazy river which was in the first building right by the theater. The nightly show would run until 10:30pm at night and we could hear it in our room which wasn't helpful when my kids were trying to sleep. The Iberostar complex is huge! It's a master-planned resort complex with several hotels on the property with the Lindo being in the middle. The Lindo has a ton of rooms. If you are looking for a small boutique hotel it's not for you. There are golf cart drivers that can take you from resort to resort and from the beach to the front lobby. The Lindo has a ton of stuff to do - several pools (large and small), swim up bar, wave pool, lazy river, beautiful beach (with very little seaweed), tennis courts, golf course, kids club, archery, shooting, daily pool activities, theater with nightly performances, disco, casino, souvenir vendors, several restaurants, free water sports. The service was wonderful. Everyone is so friendly and the staff works really hard to make sure you have a great time. My daughter spent 2 days in the kids club because it was so fun. The kids did several activities around the resort all day long from cooking classes to beach activities. They even take the kids to lunch and dinner if the kids want to stay all day. Every night before the main show, there is a kids show at 8pm that any child can participate in. It's super cute and the costumes are amazing. If you stay at the Lindo you also have access to some of the other resorts' facilities and restaurants. Our favorite was the Japanese Hibachi restaurant. Our Hibachi chef was hilarious! Here's a list of my pros and cons for this hotel:
Pros:
Great location, beautiful hotel, beautiful beach, multiple pools, plenty of lawn chairs, tons of fun activities and entertainment for all ages, easy to get a drink, friendly staff, wide variety of food, nightly entertainment, awesome kids club, access to other properties, golf carts will drive you around. There is a concierge in each building who can help with reservations, etc.
Free wifi
Cons:
Massive resort, requires a lot of walking, especially to get to the kids club which is in front of the lobby near the tennis courts.
AC could've been better in our room.
Tried to make reservations in some of the restaurants and they weren't available. The Italian restaurant wasn't available any of the 5 nights we were there.
The reservations link on the app didn't work.
I think I paid $28 U.S. for a bottle of sunscreen in the gift shop and there aren't any shopping areas within walking distance to get a cheaper price.
Would've liked access to a snack bar near the pool for my kids. They had one at the beach but one by the pool would've been convenient so we didn't have to leave the pool to go eat lunch every day.
Helpful tips:
Try to book restaurant reservations in advance if possible.
Bring your own floats and sand toys. They have inner tubes to use in the lazy river and sell toys in the shop but you'll save money if you bring your own.
Bring an extension cord. Only 1 side of our bed had a plug.
There are plenty of lounge chairs and palapas all over the resort but if you want front row at the main pool or beach, you'll have to get there by 8am otherwise they are already claimed.
Download the Iberostar App. You can click on activities and scroll to see all of the activities for the day for kids by age and adults.
There are 2 different restaurants for breakfast and lunch - one in the lobby and one by the pool. There is a sports bar in the lobby that serves pretty good burgers and wings with no reservations required.
If you can't get a reservation, go anyway because the restaurants will release tables for no shows.
Iberostar doesn't use single use plastic cups or straws as a part of their commitment to the environment. If you have a small child or someone with special needs you may need to bring you own cups with straws.
