    Beautiful Place. Fantastic Staff

    Resort is beautiful and the all-inclusive amenities are fantastic. We stayed at the oceanfront butler suites and our butlers Miguel and Karolina went above and beyond to make our experience here memorable. We will definitely come back again.

    Great resort, wonderful staff, food and drinks are well above average, but it has a very relaxed vibe.

    This was our third time visiting the Grand Paraiso. The property itself is exquisite! The grounds, pool, and a la carte restaurants are all very good. The service here is impecable and the staff members, from the butlers, to the poolside drink servers and the entertainment staff all go out of their way to ensure that you have a great time. The resort has top shelf liquor and US Domestic beer options such as Coors light if that is what you are into. Once you are checked in, you can take advantage of their app to order drinks at the pool, room service, dinner reservations etc. Don't be afraid to ask for a bottle to be delivered to your room from your butler. The Asian Hibachi restaurant is always our favorite and the food in the buffet is decent. It does get old and repetitive eating the same buffet options day in and day out so be sure you book reservations at the a la carte restaurants. There are 3 or 4 other resorts attached to the Grand that you can visit at your leisure as well as a nice shopping center with a pretty decent burger and taco stand that are both complimentary. I would say the best thing this resort has going for it is that there is plenty of cabanas and pool chairs that have shade available. Same goes for the beach. Do not forget things like OTC medicines, SPF chapstick or sunscreen because you will pay quadruple the normal price at the resort and there isn't anything super close by. Playa Del Carmen is a $32 one way taxi ride which was kind of a bummer, but we did venture down there on one night. As many pros as this resort has, the major con at least for us was that it is a very laid back, almost sedate property and if I had to guess, the average age of the guests is 60+. Not that there is anything wrong with that, just be prepared for a quiet vacation. My wife and I are in our mid 40s and while we appreciate the fact that the place is not overcrowded with spring break college aged students having foam parties and taking body shots off of one another, we did get a little bored and were happy we only booked 5 nights. I don't know what (or if there is) a solution as many of the guests seemed to love how sedate it was. There was a group that was there for a couple of nights during our stay that "kept the party going" for a little while, but once they left, the vibe changed quite a bit. That might be the solution, go with a large group where you can make your own fun.

    Wonderful Resort

    This resort is amazing. My wife and I returned recently from a weeklong trip there and we’re already looking forward to getting another visit scheduled. The rooms were beautiful and comfortable (we had a standard room - no beachfront or pool view but it was perfect), restaurants were all great (Italian and Steakhouse were our favs but all were excellent), grounds and pools impeccable and the staff was incredible. Along those lines, I’d like to recognize Vira, Carlos and Alma in the entertainment and pool areas for their friendliness and for making sure that everyone was having a great time. I’d also like to point out how helpful Joseph the consierge was and how he went out of his way to make sure we secured reservations to all of the restaurants. There are many others who helped make our stay wonderful as well. My wife and I have been to Sandals and other AIs in the past but this place and the staff has them all beat, hands down. Book your vacation here and go have a great time. You won’t regret it.

    Perfection !

    We had a fabulous time at the Iberostar Grand Paraiso. The hotel is stunning. Well maintained & spotlessly clean. Our room was comfortable & well equipped. As well as the usual soap & shampoo etc there was mouthwash, insect repellent, had sanitizer, nail files, cotton buds & bath salts. Always plenty of clean towels. At the coffee / fridge area there were nuts, pretzels, crisps, cookies & chocolate. They provided me with a kettle & milk as I am a tea drinker. There is a decent dining table & chairs should you require room service. Every member of staff were warm & welcoming, always asking if we needed anything. The Butlers were always there making sure we had all we required to make our stay perfect. Mirna at the pool made sure we had towels & cleaned our sunglasses, she was amazing & looked after us so well. The a la carte restaurants were excellent. All our dining experiences were enjoyable. The food was good quality & cooked to perfection. (The steaks were tender & tasty) The house wines were ok. Again the service excellent. There were many activities throughout the day to keep you occupied. The music around the pool was age appropriate (mainly 80's) which we enjoyed. (non of this rapping / techno music) Plenty of sun beds. Nice clean pool. The evening entertainment was better than we have had elsewhere. There was something in the lobby bar every night from 8-9 (singer, saxophonist, piano player) A show of some sort started around 9.15 - 10.15. Band on the beach, mexican night, fire show, circus show, good guitar player etc. I think there more things later still be we were never up that late. This hotel exceeded our expectations & we would definitely go back. Thank you you to all staff, you made our holiday perfect.

    Amazing resort

    We had such a wonderful time at the Iberostar Grand Paraiso in Riviera Maya! The hotel is so beautiful & our room was perfect! The entire staff from our check in to our check out at the Prestige lounge (Daniella & all the ladies) was amazing!! Our Butler service from Mauro & the others was incredible. They were so attentive & made our stay very special! Our maid service was excellent! The towel service at the pool from Mirna was amazing & she gives the best hugs!! The restaurants & buffet were top notch! The chefs (Naomi & the rest) are truly skilled!! All of the hostesses, servers (Susana) were so attentive & friendly! And Gonzalo Morelos Vargas (who seemed to be at every restaurant we went to) made our dining experience so enjoyable with his great personality!! We enjoyed many activities, especially yoga & water aerobics with Cinthia & Janco!! All of the bartenders (Antonio at the lobby bar) were amazing too!! We can’t wait to go back!!
