The pearl clutchers ( most of whom don't even play TS3 ) are often waffling on about how terrible and unplayable IP is. It isn't.
The world requires some TLC to fix it ( I also always remove the resorts from my game as well ) but it is perfectly playable after you've performed most of the fixes.
You can then save the game and use your fixed save to begin any new games so you don't have to continually repeat the steps.

I’ve been debating whether or not to get the island paradise sims 3 pack but people keep telling me there are to many glitches in it? Is that still true today?

I have to join in the chorus of praising NRAAS for fixing most if not all of my issues in IP and the world itself is beautiful and by far the prettiest of Maxis worlds that I own (there are a few on the store I still don't have.) I love scuba diving, resorts, houseboats, regular boats, water skiing, and many other things about the expansion. Mermaids are kinda lame if you have an aversion to cheating in any way - their life span is the same as a human's and they don't get anything that humans or other life states can't earn (diving) or buy with lifetime reward points (steel lungs) and whether or not you buy the lifetime reward "permanent mermaid" they suffer greatly from dehydration any time it's warm outside, they're near a campfire or bonfire or flamefruit, etc. but that's just my opinion about the mermaids. It is my second most favorite expansion I think, though, and my absolute favorite Maxis world out of all of the expansions.
Also, contrary to other players experience on this thread, I can do everything from my houseboat. I can fish, I can swim from it, I can snorkel from it and I can and have parked it directly over dive spots. You can even store a speedboat on your houseboat. Their only limitation is number of levels and actual size. If you're a player that likes huge humongous houses with lots of levels then you might find them a bit confining, as you are limited in the number of floors you can have (one basement level and three (I think) above deck levels. But even with a family of 5 sims and a dog and only 2 above deck levels and one basement I had plenty of room, including a rooftop garden and a full rec room in the basement complete with a pool table, a large bar area, a TV/game area, a guest room and an alchemy room. To avoid the rocking boat thing I just keep my camera zoomed in on my sims and my walls all the way up or in cutaway mode
