We brought family to Iberostar Lindo. We have been to The Grand, Maya and Lindo before. No welcome upon arrival, no welcome drink offered. At check in, told no maps for the grounds “use the app!” But, the concierge had plenty of maps. Luggage just brought to room, no demo on how anything works( this was at all 5 rooms). Room offers minimal toiletries. Bottled water no longer available. Water only dispensed from hallway dispensers( ours was broken). Mini fridge not replenished daily. However, family friendly resort. Many large groups. Dinner reservations hard to get, yet restaurants never crowded. We were very lucky to have minimal seaweed on the beach our first 3 days. Property grounds are beautiful. Food and entertainment just so so. Fortunately, kids don’t know any difference. Sadly, we would not return.

Honest Review of Lindo

Jbjcrowell (Pueblo, Colorado) on Jul 01, 2022

We came with a large group, and had high expectations as we have stayed at numerous resorts in Riveria Maya. We had a Junior Suite near the pool, and while the location was fine, our room was really small for 3 adults. There was no couch in our room, only double beds. My biggest complaint is about the food. Hot food was not kept hot, and cold food was not cold at all. Lots of food just sitting out, bugs flying around the food, in the food. Very gross! We felt the main buffet, Pagoda was bad...no variety, and again, food not kept at proper Temps. I actually put my hand on the cold plates that were supposed to keep things cold, and they were warm! Best food was at the Sports Bar and Star Cafe! Beach snack area was also good. We went to the Steak House, El Rancho, and my daughter found a worm in her salad that wad alive! They were apologetic, but it was still gross! The pool was also a disappointment. They were doing some maintenance on half of it, and the pool bar was very crowded, noisy and gross! The mixes for Pina coladas and strawberry drinks were just kept in a bucket at the bar with zero ice or refrigeration! I literally saw the bar tenders mixing the buckets with part of their hands and no gloves! Our group had 21 people and over half of them got sick! The grounds are beautiful, the Sports Bar and Lobby bar are nice, as is the Star Cafe. I don't think we will ever come back, as we prefer other resorts.

Perfect mother daughter trip!

ebissell526 (Collegeville, Pennsylvania) on Jun 27, 2022

Our five day visit started on May 14 - we were lucky, our stay was wedged in between two long periods of bad weather and lots of seaweed. We had gorgeous perfect weather and clean beaches daily. I have no complaints during my time there - for us, we had: No issues with finding pool chairs. No rain. No seaweed. No construction. No party groups. No traffic. No closed restaurants. Yes the room is a little dated and my soap dispenser fell off the wall but we could have cared less about stuff like that. The food was great- we ate at Under the Sea, the Italian place, the hibachi place, and El Rancho. We ate at the buffet for breakfast and it was probably the best resort buffet I’ve ever been to in terms of quality and presentation. We saw every wildlife there was in the resort (we visited all of them on property). We went parasailing and to the Cirque show, and we hit the taco shop, the crepe shop, and the disco (every night and had a blast!). The drinks were delicious, the property is gorgeous, and the people were awesome. The only downers were: yes, it’s a TON of walking, so if you don’t like that, go elsewhere. Yes the shows are terrible, so if that’s important to you, go elsewhere. Yes the rooms are a bit “lived in” (I was in first floor bldg 53) so if luxury accommodations are a must, go elsewhere. Yes there’s not a ton of “top shelf” alcohol options (even at upgraded Lindo), so I’d that’s a deal breaker go elsewhere. For us, this was an A+ mom/daughter trip and we would return again in a heartbeat!

Awesome entertainment

Big shoutout to nico from the entertainment team! He’s good at archery! Loved the food and the pool and the star camp. Had a blast here and also at the buffet. Would definitely come back here once more

Lovely & huge

Mytybarnes on Jun 25, 2022

Iberostar Lindo is lovely and the grounds are very well maintained. Service was good and food was ok. The distance to get to places is very long and golf carts are not always readily available. I was disappointed that there was no game room or activities for teenagers at night.
