I have put these two hotels on the same page because they are the same. The rooms are exactly the same. They share the same restaurants, bars, pools, beach and disco. The differences between them are very minor. They have different lobbies. The architecture of the outside of the room blocks is different. When facing the beach the rooms for the del Mar on left side of the pool and the rooms of the Beach are on the right side of the pool.

Iberostar Resorts are extremely popular in the Riviera Maya. Nine months out of the year they are going to be completely full. Please book you trip at least 6 months in advance. All Iberostar Resort with the word Paraiso in their name are on Paraiso Beach and are all in one complex. When you stay at either of these resorts you have share privileges at the Iberostar Quetzal, Tucan and Cozumel. Many people that are looking at one of these resorts is also thinking about going to the Iberostar Paraiso Lindo as well. At the Lindo you have a tub/shower combination rather than just a shower. You also have more concierge service at the Lindo. The biggest difference is that the Lindo has a wave pool and a lazy river.

Some people that are thinking about either of these resorts are also thinking about staying at the Quetzal/Tucan. The difference there are the Quetzal/Tucan are located 30 minutes south in Playacar which is a $5, 5 minute cab ride to Playa del Carmen. The Quetzal/Tucan is cut out of thick jungle while the Beach/del Mar is a flat in terrain with open gardens. As far as rooms, amenities, quality and service you can expect the same.

The bottom line is that you cannot go wrong with an Iberostar Resort in the Rivera Maya. The reason why they are so popular is because they are what people are looking for in a family vacation. They have clean rooms, friendly staff, huge free form pools, great beaches, a good all inclusive program, and some of the best entertainment staff in the industry.

Reasons to book this resort: You are looking for great family all-inclusive resort where there is always something do. You want to be relatively close to the airport.

Reasons not to book the resort : You are looking for an adults only resort (look at Iberostar Grand Paraiso). You are going to book one of the other Iberostar Resorts.
