Hyatt Zilara Paradisus Iberostar Cancun

Hello

I want to make a vacation gift for my father and mother.

They are 70s, they like good beach, buffets, not a la carte food, all incluisve resort, not boring...

Last year they went to Live Aqua. They didn´t like the buffet nor the food..they liked the beach

Hyatt Zilara, Paradisus or Iberostar Cancun ?

Thanks and regards

I've stayed at the Hyatt Zilara and enjoyed the food more than my stays at Secrets Resorts. Their buffet was excellent, and we also enjoyed dining at their outdoor restaurant overlooking the ocean. I think it is a little nicer than the other 2 resorts you mention- I stayed at Paradisus when it was the Gran Melia - nice but not quite same league as the Hyatt.

I have stayed at the Hyatt Z four times before it became Hyatt so maybe it has changed. I have stayed at Live Aqua many times and the food is much better. Many more options for lunch and far better. The breakfast and dinner options were far better at Live Aqua in comparison. You couldn’t even have lunch to your lounger at HZ.

they also don’t have umbrellas so you may need to get up very early to get a cabana depending on occupancy. We really enjoyed our stays there but we enjoyed the food more at LA. Paradisus Cancun and Iberostar are not adult only so not a good comparison. I agree with Blossom...they are not in the same league though Paradisus should be a step up from the Iberostar,

I am wondering if they only like buffets perhaps a trip to Riu Palace Las America’s would work. It is adults only and would be cheaper. The beach is nice but it is smaller. Another place to check is Sun Palace. It is adult only and has very good food. It doesn’t have a buffet for dinner though,

They Hyatt Z may work for them if it is the same as when we stayed. I am not sure if it is the same but they used to have a buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Many adult resorts use the buffet at night for another a la carte restaurant so be sure to check. I would double check this if it is important for them. You could book a room that comes with a beach cabana. We did this on a few of our trips. They are assigned to the room so you don't get to pic the location unfortunately but this may have changed. They also may have moved the assigned ones to a better location. Someone will know that has stayed recently. They usually have a show in the lobby at night which they may enjoy.
