IBEROSTAR is still the all-star of the all-inclusive resort getaway. Classic, refined, and elegant in its approach to hospitality, it can almost feel old school but only in a good way. They’re simply doing what they always did best.
Today, these are some of our favorites in the IBEROSTAR collection of resorts, specifically in Mexico, Jamaica, and the Dominican Republic.
When IBEROSTAR’ING in Mexico – Go Here
IBEROSTAR Paraiso Lindo: Situated perfectly between Cancun and Playa del Carmen, this colonial style resort truly basks in the surrounding beauty and is built for the whole family. It’s as if everywhere you turn, the colonial style architecture complements the natural environment. And this colonial style is fully embraced – starting at the lobby, which resembles an ancient monastery with touches of gold leaf, and then down to the smallest details. The food is represented throughout á la carte restaurants and an enormous – this is IBEROSTAR; we’re talking ENORMOUS – international buffet. Main dish? Vol-au-vent stuffed with shrimp and lobster cream. Say no more.

IBEROSTAR Paraiso Maya: Same location, different digs, this gem is also in between Cancun and Playa del Carmen but incorporates more of a traditional Mayan look, with Mayan art all throughout the resort grounds. In fact, each piece of furniture is actually a work of art made of wood, brass, bronze, or limestone. A giant harp made with seashells in its strings, huge brass vases, authentic Mayan ruins, and a lobby bar that is an exact replica of the pyramid of Chichen Itza makes this stay a true masterpiece.
IBEROSTAR Cancun: In the heart of Cancun, this classic spot offers up paradise on a large scale – great for groups and guests looking for spacious accommodations. The convention center alone separates this resort from the others, featuring three interconnected conference rooms and large outdoor areas for groups to hold conferences, social events, fairs, and expos. The kicker? The convention center comes with oceanfront views. Also a golfer’s paradise, it’s the only resort in the area with an 18-hole championship golf course onsite. Golf is, of course, way less stressful with a backdrop like Cancun. So tee off into the rough – who cares?
IBEROSTAR Playa Mita: On Mexico’s unique Pacific coast, near Puerto Vallarta, this is a family-friendly dream resort, featuring a Splash Park and a disco. Here, too, you can tee-off with endless views of paradise at the Litibu Golf Course, one of the top courses in Riviera Nayarit, right next door to the resort. The food here, epic as always, is unique in that it keeps a traditional focus on authentic Mexican cuisine throughout four specialty restaurants and the Nopal buffet. Enjoy aguachile, shrimp tamales, and fresh seafood – this resort takes its culinary approaches seriously!

IBEROSTAR’ING in Jamaica? Go here.
IBEROSTAR Rose Hall Suites: Might as well make the experience suite. Here, stay in spacious accommodations built for family getaways or ultimate romantic retreats. Personalized service lifts the hospitality to a degree of pure bliss that complements the large-space, suite-style of living. With great proximity to the urban area of Rose Hall – also with great sightseeing – you get to experience pampering bliss with a true immersion into Jamaica and the Jamaican lifestyle.
Keeping it Suite – The Dominican Republic Favorite
IBEROSTAR Bávaro Suites: a true hideaway in a coveted location between lush tropical gardens and beach paradise, this one-of-a-kind resort features 75 two-story bungalows, a shopping center, nightclub, casino, and the stunning Spa Sensations. Besides the soft white sand and cerulean sea, it’s also an entertainment paradise. With evening shows, comedy, and a brand-new water park, fun and entertainment are on a whole other level. Maybe best of all, however, is that the resort is newly renovated, recently having enhanced the lobby, reception area, buffets, kids mini club, theater, lobby bar, and the fitness center – with a brand-new grill located conveniently at the outdoor buffet.
