Menus & Maps

Menus for L’Atelier, Toni’s, Venecia and Haiku have recently changed and I have been unable to get good quality copies. The next time I am at the Grand I hope to be able to obtain them. My apologies for having to leave this page lacking at this time.

    Yay, I’m so glad you were able to post the wine & beverage menus. Based on your trip report, I guess it’s safe to say that you enjoyed the champagne, lol. Which one did you like the most (and was it on the drier or sweeter side?).

    Can you also tell me where the Japanese and Gourmet restaurants are? I couldn’t see these restaurants on the resort map.

    Lastly, which building do you prefer if you are in a standard jr. suite?

    Thanks again! 🙂

    • shoediva50 says:

      We were served several different brands of champagne. I was happy with them all and they seem a higher quality than in past years. I prefer a drier champagne and none we had were too sweet.
      The Japanese restaurant is #14 on the map. The Gourmet is next to Bella Vista and downstairs two flights from the Japanese and Toni’s.
      Twice we had rooms in Building 72 at the end closest to the restaurants and I liked that location. But they were both ocean view.

  2. Raine says:

    Thanks so much for the info, Andrea! Your help is greatly appreciated. 🙂

    keep it up!

    Thanks for taking the time to put it all together!

    As you just came back from another fabulous trip, can you tell me if these menus are still similar to what’s being served now? I’m planning our December visit & trying to figure out our dinner reservations. I’m allergic to shrimp & mussells (sad, but true) & the menus I saw on another site from 2005 had a lot of shrimp & not a lot of other options. Thanks for putting all of this together.

    • shoediva50 says:

      The menus here are very similar to what they have now, if not identical. The wine menus have changed somewhat. The Italian restaurant had some specials the night we ate there.

  7. DEB HOLLINSHEAD says:

    GREAT REVIEW THIS REALLY LOOKS A GREAT PLACE TO STAY IF YOU ARE A FOODIE LIKE ME! MY HUSBAND LIKES TO WORK OUT WHILE WE ARE AWAY AND I’M HAVING PROBLEMS FINDING OUT WHAT THE GYM IS LIKE – ANY INFO WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. LOVE THE BLOG REALLY HELPFUL

    • shoediva50 says:

      Do a search here for “Hurricane Who?” and you can see the pictures I took of the gym. I have never worked out in there, but it looks like it has everything you’d need. It is located inside the spa.
      Glad you are finding my blog helpful!

  8. Sandee Matarese says:

    This is fantastic information. We will be at the IGP in November 2014. I am so glad I found this site with such valuable information. I assume the menus have not changed drastically. Could you tell me if each of the a la carte restaurants open every day and is there a dinner buffet available each day? Also, do you know what is the “Stars Under the Stars”? Thanking you in advance.

    • shoediva50 says:

      During times of lower occupancy they do often close some of the ala cartes on a rotating basis. This changes so you would need to find out when you go if this will be happening and which ones. I think they have a buffet nightly, but this has changed over the years and may also depend on occupancy. The Stars Under the Stars is a poolside party they have with an International buffet. You can attend even if you don’t eat at the buffet. They have bands, dancing, bars and tables set up. It is only held when the weather is good. Thanks for reading my blog!

  9. Sandee Matarese says:

    Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. Love your blog!!!

  10. Sandee Matarese says:

    Hi Andrea, During our Iberostar Grand vacation in November, we would like to plan a day trip to Talum. We are thinking a half day private tour. Do you have any suggestions or recommendations? FYI, our next vacation will probably be a California Coast/ wine country visit, so I am also enjoying your San Francisco/Sonoma/Wine Country blog. I just love your blog!!!

  11. shoediva50 says:

    When we went to Tulum we asked the butler to arrange a car. It was about $200 from 9am – 3 pm. We just went to a beach club and spent the day there. Playa.info also has private transportation you can arrange ahead of time. We went to Ziggy’s. They had fairly good service and good drinks and good food. Beds. Bring towels (we forgot). I wish we had walked around the town a bit.
    We LOVE Napa.

  12. Sandee Maarese says:

    Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. The day trip to Tulum sounds like what we are interested in. Did you have a driver or did you drive yourselves? We are definitely interested in having a driver. Should these plans be made before we arrive or after we arrive at the Grand? Also, should we make dinner reservations at the various restaurants before we arrive or will after our arrival be ok? Have I mentioned, I love your blog!!!!

    • shoediva50 says:

      We had a driver. I don’t really have any interest in driving myself in a country where I don’t speak the language and have heard too many stories about police shakedowns. We asked our butler to arrange the driver and he took care of everything. We did it after we got there. You might pay less if you arranged it before you go through playa.info or Cancun valet.
      I do recommend contacting the hotel and making reservations for dinner a week before you arrive for the first few nights at least. Do you have that email?
      Thanks for reading my blog!

  13. Gus says:

    Hi from Spain , champagne in room service is available free? Or you can orden wine too?
    Do you recommend these hotel for my honeymoon? Is all inclusive or some wines are not inclusive and you pay additional cost?
    Excuse my bad english?
    We Want to go to 20 october – 25 october, is a good season? Low or high occupancy?,…

    • shoediva50 says:

      Champagne (sparkling wine) from room service is included, as well as wine. There are many wines that are included, but also wines that you can get at an additional cost.
      The end of October is not high season, but there is still the possibility of hurricanes that time of year.

  14. Jean says:

    Can you make dinner reservations on line or do you need to phone the hotel?

  15. Greg says:

    Good information….. makes me feel better about this resort selection. We like wines with dinner…. can you point me to a wine list. Didn’t notice any above… Judging from the solid selection of liqours, we are hopeful the wine will be atleast reasonable.
    Thanks and cheers

  16. Jeff says:

    My wife and I are going for the first time next week and we are super excited. If you were to rank the restaurants, how would they go?

  17. Liz says:

    My husband and daughter and I are traveling with another family to the Lindo next month. Do you happen to have menus or thoughts on the restaurants and bars there? Also, do you happen to know if early check-in is possible? Our flight lands around 9:45 AM…Thanks!

    • shoediva50 says:

      We had a great vacation at the Lindo with our kids. I do not have their menus. We really liked the Cajun restaurant and the Gourmet. You can eat at the Japanese over at the Beach too. As far as early check in, it seems like it doesn’t happen very often. I imagine they would if your room was ready but if it’s high occupancy that is less likely. They may have a place where you can change so you can go to the beach or pool while you are waiting.

  18. Liz says:

    Thank you! I am glad to hear you had a positive experience!

  19. Billy says:

    Any chance you have a spa menu with prices that you can post?

  20. Tali says:

    Hi. Do you know if they have vegetarian options? Looking at the menus and it seems like it’s pointless to even make reservations or eat at the restaurants. Do I just stick to the buffet? Any advice? Thanks!!

    • shoediva50 says:

      They don’t have a lot of vegetarian options on the menus, but they will make special requests, within reason. Other vegetarians have reported good experiences.

      • Tali says:

        Thank you! Do you have any information about the restaurants in the other hotels next to the grand? Do we have access to those restaurants as well?

  21. shoediva50 says:

    As a guest of the Grand, you can eat at any of the other restaurants in the other hotels. I don’t have any current information on them though. Remember, most of them will allow kids.

    • Tali says:

      Your blog is great! Thank you so much for the quick and helpful replies. Looking forward to being there soon! Is there any nightlife or evening entertainment at the hotel on site or do people leave the hotel for that?

  22. shoediva50 says:

    Thank you! There is usually a live band in the lobby, but they aren’t very lively. LOL! There is a very good show at ten each night. There is a disco at the shopping center. There is karaoke in the music bar. It’s not a hotel known for a very lively night life though.
    Have you joined the Iberostar Grand Paraiso group on Facebook? It’s great for asking questions and getting lots of opinions and people posting pictures.
