Re: HELP! I need to figure between a few AI: Iberostar Paraiso/ grand sunset/ Catalonia Ma
My husband and I stayed at the IB Paraiso and loved it, then we found the Grand Palladium. There are no reservation limits and the beach is just beautiful. The is no class system like the IB either, except for guests staying at the Royal Suites - which is adult only - where we like to stay. The Palladium is a little over an hour (?) from the airport.
We have stayed at the Bahia before the dolphin prison and the Grand Palladium in my opinion is a better resort. I haven't stayed at CPM, but for reasons D mentioned, wouldn't. Now the Catalonia Royal Tulum (in Puerto Adventuras) is Adults Only too and on a fabulous beach as well, we were there many years ago - might want to consider that one.
Check out the Valentin Imperial Maya as tequb said, it's a bit pricier than the ones you mentioned, but looks and sounds oh so fabulous! It's Adults Only and just a bit north of the IB.
I Agree with wifey - I'd take the Barcelo off the list too.
