Iberostar to Temporarily Shut Down Some Riviera Maya Hotels

Due to decreased travel to Mexico as a result of the H1N1 virus, Iberostar Hotels & Resorts has temporarily closed some of its hotels in Mexico beginning Friday. According to a written statement, “This measure is being taken in order to continue maintaining the high level of service that Iberostar is known for and provide guests with a memorable vacation experience.”

Guests who have booked upcoming stays or are currently staying at the hotels that will be closed have been informed and upgraded to other nearby Iberostar properties. Properties slated to close include Iberostar Paraiso del Mar (guests will be upgraded to Iberostar Paraiso Lindo); Iberostar Paraiso Beach (guests will be upgraded to Iberostar Paraiso Lindo); Iberostar Quetzal (guests will be upgraded to Iberostar Paraiso Lindo) and Iberostar Tucan (guests will be upgraded to Iberostar Paraiso Lindo). Reopening dates are tentatively scheduled for June 1 and will depend on increased travel to Mexico. During the closure of current hotels, Iberostar will use the time to perform previously scheduled maintenance and upgrades.
