The properties are beautiful, the staff friendly and amazing, the pools and food wonderful! I had two minor issues : a 2 hour wait for room service one night and the vanity mirror did not function (would not turn on and kept falling over)-I made two requests for repair. However, the minor issues pale in comparison to the awesome amazing stay we had at Iberostar Paraiso Maya! Highly recommeded!

Very large beach property with great pools

The junior suites on the Maya side where nice and comfortable. The Maya and Lindo resorts share a pool, beach and restaurants. Overall, the pool was nice. They had many activities to pick from. The lazy river was a bit too lazy, but still fun. The beach was quant, but you do have to walk about 2 minutes to get there. The pools and beach do not touch. The food was okay, not great. The shows were good, especially the Mexixan folklore ballet. Overall the hotel was nice and the staff was lovely. However, when they tell you that you have a “resort credit” it is really discounts on extras and not a credit. You may have “$400” but really you can use it as follows, but a bottle of wine which costs more than $75, then a $25 credit or discount will be applied. You cannot, for example, use your credit to buy the entire bottle of wine. I found this disingenuous. Also, they will try to sell you in their timeshares, so beware.

Excellent service with great food! Restaurants were always accessible even if you made your reservations late. Beach location was fantastic. We did have some seaweed in the water, but unlike most resorts in playa del Carmen the beach had practically no rocks and great sand. Even though the resort was full, You still didn’t feel crowded. The entertainment was good with lots to do at pool. We will definitely be back!!!

2nd time at the Maya

We asked to move rooms the next day they front desk got us a quieter room stayed there 2 nights and then switched to the Grand adults only. That hotel was unbelievable everything was Great!

Great Week at the Iberostar Maya

Pros: Pool, choice of restaurants, entertainment, kids club, Star Friends, room sizes,
Cons: Occasionally the grounds needed some cleaning up due to overzealous guests - one broken bottle (ONE during a full 7 days), limes and straws poolside
Location: 30 minutes or less from the airport, 20 minutes to Playa Del Carmen and Puerto Morelos. Beach was NOT rocky at all except near the Grand.
We stayed 7 nights at this resort in Mid June. We found the resort to be beautiful inside and out. The resort is made up of 5 resorts in one. We found the Maya to be a great fit. The Lindo's lobby might actually be nicer but the Maya is great. The pool is huge and set up well. We never had trouble finding chairs except for the first day when we arrived to the resort after 1:00 PM. If you are up to go to breakfast by 8:00 you won't have a hard time finding chairs at the pool. We did not go to the beach much due to heavy surf and some weeds so we stayed poolside. There are 3 bars in the pool and each one has it's own merits. Pool bar is a little rowdy during certain times of the day but nothing more than PG13. The other two bars made for nice diversions and generally provided very quick service. Pro Tip - Bring a Yeti or other insulated cup and they will fill those up for you instead of using their standard bar ware. The Star Friends (read - entertainment and activity directors) were awesome. Charlie, Rico, Alberto and the rest of them were great with all guests but especially our kids. Our kids loved the kids club and went there 3 days! They even had them do shows in the Lindo theater which was really fun. I could go on and on about how awesome all of them were.

Good Hotel

We had a great time at the resort. A lots of activities for kids. Clean pools. Nice beach. Good food and plenty of it. The Only down side from our trip was SMOKING. At the pools and on the beach people smoke and don't care about you or your kids. They allow locals to come on the beach and offer you tobacco products. Also there was some nudity ( females with no top). We found that very disturbing ( you don't want your kids to be exposed to nudity) and notel personal refused to act on it. Over all we had a good time. Most likely will NOT come back to this place.
