What is the difference between Value and Luxury All-Inclusive resorts?

One problem a travel agent can solve for you is helping you understand the difference between resorts and assess if the upgrade in price is worth it.

For example, Iberostar Paraiso del Mar, Iberostar Paraiso Beach, Iberostar Paraiso Lindo, Iberostar Paraiso Maya, and Iberostar Grand Hotel Paraiso all sit next to each other on the same beach.

So, what's the difference?

Iberostar Paraiso del Mar and Iberostar Paraiso Beach share the same beach area, pools, entertainment and beach area.

Del Mar and Beach guest amenities:
  • 11 am - 11 pm Room Service
  • Only 3 a la care restaurants reservations per week. Other dinners are in the buffet.
  • Concierge in lobby only
  • Restaurants are open air.

Iberostar Paraiso Lindo and Iberostar Paraiso Maya share the same beach area, pools, entertainment and kid's clubs.

Lindo and Maya amenities
  • 24 hour rooms service
  • Unlimited a la restaurant reservations
  • Most restaurants are air-conditioned
  • Concierge in each building
  • Wave Pool and Lazy River

The Maya guests can make reservations at the Lindo ra la carte restaurants. The Lindo guest cannot make reservations at the Maya a la carte restaurants. The other big difference is the rooms. The Maya has all junior suites.

The differences between the Grand Hotel and the Maya and Lindo are more substantial:
  • The Grand is adults only.
  • Grand guests can make unlimited a la carte reservations at any restaurant in the complex.
  • 24 hour room service
  • The food offerings are upgraded. For instance, the grill at the Maya and Lindo offers chicken, burgers and hot dogs. The grill at the Grand offers steak, tuna, salmon, or chicken grilled to your specifications.
  • The chairs are more luxurious at the Grand and the service is faster.
