Final hotel reviews from our Florida sales rep, Everton, from his recent trip to Riviera Maya.
Iberostar Paraiso del Mar – This is the entry-level property of the Iberostar complex. They are standard rooms, which are colorful and well maintained. The grounds are beautiful. Room service is offered from 11am – 11pm. King-bed rooms offer a shower only while double-bed rooms offer a tub with shower. A-la- carte dining does have restrictions at this resort and reservations are required.
Iberostar Paraiso Maya – This resort features all junior suites and it is located in the center of the Iberostar complex. The resort offers 24-hour room service with no restrictions on a-la-carte dining. This resort also features a Lazy River and wave pool! The hotel is perfect for families.
Iberostar Grand Hotel Paraiso – This is an adults-only LUXURY Resort! 310 junior suites with butler service! 4 Specialty Restaurants and 24-hour room service! The resort exudes a feeling of luxury and opulence! * Note – There is a huge shopping area on site at the entire Iberostar complex for all resorts. The complex even offers a Catholic Church.
Riu Playacar – The hotel offers 386 standard rooms and 2 Restaurants. It does have sharing privileges with the Riu Yucatan and the Riu Tequila. Perfect for someone looking for a “smaller” resort.
Riu Palace Mexico – This resort hosted us and we received great service and amazing food. The hotel has 434 junior suites, 6 restaurants, 2 pools, a swim-up bar and golf nearby. I thoroughly enjoyed the food and the service! Beautiful beach and it is close to Playa del Carmen!
