Editor’s Review of IBEROSTAR Paraiso Lindo

You've just arrived at Cancun International Airport, hopefully on a direct flight, hopped on an air-conditioned bus for the 30-minute drive south to the northern fringes of the Rivera Maya called Playa Paraiso, and finally make it to the Iberostar Paraiso Lindo. Enter the lobby, with its ivory and tan colored tiling and those soaring ceilings, head to the reception desk, and wait for a refreshing tropical drink to be planted in your hand. Your vacation has officially started.

A bellhop drives your family and luggage to your room and looking around, you begin to realize that you made a wise decision booking a room at the Paraiso Lindo. Opened in December 2004 as an addition to Iberostar's other two hotels in Playa Paraiso,
... more Paraiso Beach and Paraiso del Mar, the Lindo is more upscale with a keen sense of style. The three-story villas are painted in an appealing mix of sky blue and tan and topped with a thatched palapa roof. Take a stroll on a boardwalk through a mangrove forest and you feel lost in the tropical splendor. Or go for a swim in the spectacular pool, where swim-up bars are shaded under waterfalls, and a large recreation of a Mayan temple produces the only wave pool found in the Riviera Maya.

Similar to the way Iberostar Paraiso Beach and Iberostar Paraiso del Mar share restaurants, swimming pools, and other facilities, the Paraiso Lindo shares restaurants and the sprawling swimming pool with Paraiso Maya. Families are free to roam into all five of the hotels in the Iberostar complex except Iberostar Grand Paraiso, which is only open to adults. Each villa at the Lindo also has its own concierge so you can book restaurants and tours directly with them.

Even the rooms are tastefully appointed with Mayan-styled bed rests, pottery hanging from the blue sandstone walls, and a colorful pink, purple, and rouge blanket covering both double beds. Our room had a large wraparound terrace, offering views of the surrounding palms. A small sitting area with a desk, coffee table, and chairs were nestled between the beds and the balcony/terrace. Bathrooms had a bath and tub, Iberostar soaps and shampoos, and a hairdryer. The minibar was stocked with water, soda and beer. Also in the air-conditioned room were a coffeemaker, safe, ceiling fan, clock and cable television. Internet, however, was only available in the lobby or at the Internet Center for an extra charge.

The villas had no elevators, so if you're traveling with small children and strollers, be sure to book a ground floor room. Concierges are available at each villa to book restaurants each evening.
