Iberostar Hotels & Resorts Announces Newest Resort on the Riviera Maya
Opening the first week of December 2004 on Playa Paraiso between Cancun and Playa del Carmen, Mexico, the all-inclusive Iberostar Paraiso Mayawill be the highest tier addition to the Iberostar resorts located in the area. With 432 suites and two presidential suites, this five-star resort forms a twin hotel with Iberostar Paraiso Lindo.
The property is a design masterpiece with its towering entrance replication of the Chichen Itza temple.

Design elements throughout the lobby and in the guest rooms are reminiscent of the Mayan culture including a huge chandelier in the form of a snake in the lobby area. The suites, centered around a flower-filled courtyard, are built in thatch-roofed buildings to replicate a Mexican village.
Iberostar Paraiso Maya offers all the luxuries of a big all-inclusive resort. Suites are designed with either a balcony or terrace and come equipped with cable TV, air conditioning and ceiling fans, complimentary mini bar and coffee machines, a DVD player, iron and clock.
