Q: What is your favorite part of a destination wedding?
A: That we have the opportunity of know different cultures and traditions. Weddings are full of every kind of emotion, and to personally see the face of the groom when his bride is getting closer to him is the best part of every wedding.
Q: What makes Iberostar Paraiso Beach a great place for a destination wedding?
A: The Resort has a half mille of beach where the guests can enjoy the beauty of the Caribbean seas. We have more than one wedding location per hotel, with different venue options to offer. The resort also has a shopping center where we have a Catholic Chapel for catholic ceremonies. At the shopping center we have multiple restaurants that are part of the additional services that our guests can have as part of the all-inclusive.
Q: What are the challenges brides face when planning their destination wedding at Iberostar Paraiso Beach?
A: Challenges could be that we have one wedding per hotel, which limits date availability. Another thing could be a private reception on the beach must end by 11pm.
– “A very beautiful Resort. The food is plenty and excellent, the drinks are delicious, and the most important part of your stay is the staff. They are friendly, hard working, always ready to help with anything you may need. I give this place the highest rating available.” – Sal P. (08/2017)
– “Absolutely awesome! By far the best resort in all of Playa Del Carmen! We will definitely come back next year!!” – Patrick L. (07/2017)
– “This is our second year in a row visiting this resort. We live to come to Mexico on vacation for the all-inclusive experience but never found a resort we liked so much that we wanted to return. The staff, amenities, accommodations are all amazing for an all-inclusive. The best feature is probably the food. The Mexican fare is most authentic. The beach is probably the weakest feature but still really nice. We were here in August of 2016 for a week with our kids. We we’re here again in 2017 for 8 nights with another couple. We will probably come back again next year.” – David L. (06/2017)
