    Iberostar Grand Hotel Paraiso - Mexico

    Has anyone stayed at this amazing looking hotel ???

    The reviews on tripadvisor are excellent and for 2 weeks at £4k for that luxury doesn't seem too bad.

    Doesn't look all that imo :?

    There are nicer and more luxurious hotels in Dubai :thumbsup:

    £4k for two weeks holiday - what credit crunch? :lol:

    Nah, not really. A lot less than 80% IMO.

    Didn't you see the documentary on the conditions the construction workers in Dubai had to live in?

    When we were in dubai a few years ago by jumeirah beach, the workers were all packed onto buses like animals at 7am every morning and worked all day in the heat until late eveing.

    You would see them all on the highways waiting for the buses to pick them up 1st thing.
