Update (pics and raves) about Mexico vacation w/children
Okay, so we got back Monday from taking that vacation.
We were going to go with an all inclusive resort that several travel agents and others had recommended (The Barcelo Maya Beach Resort), but at the last minute, DH had a customer tell him to go to the Iberostar Paraiso Lindo. Located in Playa Paraiso, b/w Cancun and Playa del Carmen.
We took a chance and did it. Booked it through Apple Vacations and took off.
All I can say is WOW. Wow for Apple Vacations, who made us feel like we had a "friend" in Mexico, and WOW for the Iberostar group. This hotel was *just* what we needed.
Huge pools, including a wave pool and lazy river, swim up bars, really really good food, beautiful beach, the best service I've ever had. I will DEFINITELY be going back next year!
Here are a few shots of the resort:
and this is how they'd leave us fresh towels....always in the shape of a cute animal:
