We spent our Honeymoon in Cuba and split our time between Havana and Varadero. The Paradisus is a great hotel with loads of facilities. Several restaurants and plenty of choice on food and drink. It's on the beach and make sure to go into the sea, it's the most beautiful warm water you'll experience. I must say I did have... More

This resort is rated 5* by Kuoni, whose recommendations we have trusted on many holidays over the years. However, this is not a 5* resort, in spite of its Meliã pedigree (350+ hotels worldwide). On the positive side, the resort is attractive, has some good facilities and a great beach. But our overall experience was marred by poor food, poor... More

My wife and I spent a second honeymoon in the Royal Service resort at Paradisus Princeza del Mar, and what a wonderful choice and experience. The service was well organized and there when needed, but not over the top and in your face which was perfect for us because we like being left to our own. The beach was beautiful,... More
