This was our first visit to Cuba and based on our stay here at the Paradisus Rio de Oro Resort & Spa hotel we will definitely be returning to Cuba. The hotel is beautifully laid out and extremely clean and tidy. All the staff (no matter what their role is) are extremely hard working and professional and do their utmost... More

We just returned from our third trip to this lovely hotel. This time we chose 28th October to 11th November so that I could celebrate my 60th birthday in our favourite place. The excellent management and staff at the hotel did not disappoint and provided us with a beautiful refurbished room close to the pool and beach. The food at... More

The Paradisus Rio de Oro Royal Service was an exceptional experience. One always hears that the food in Cuba is not good but that is certainly not true in the Royal Service here! Breakfast, lunch and dinner in the Los Helechos were very good, with both well-cooked and fresh offerings. The interior is nicely decorated and air conditioned, while the... More

Just returned from an amazing week at the Paradisus Rio de Oro with my husband and sister. The resort is well laid out with bungalows and low rise (2flr) 16 unit buildings. The landscaping around the resort is beautiful and very well kept. The pool area is delightful with small groupings of loungers and beds tucked into little hills and... More

We were a couple visiting from Canada from November 1-8. We stayed on the Royal Side room 8623. This was my third visit to Cuba, second to Holguin but my husband's first experience to Cuba. Now when we read the reviews there were a lot of mixed reviews and messages. I have to say this was hands down the best... More

They were pleasant, professional and obviously work very hard to make their facility the best.

We recently returned from the Paradisus Rio de Oro after a great vacation. The resort is very well kept, the gardeners keep the grounds in pristine condition and there is never any garbage or litter to be found. The pool is extremely well kept and the seaweed was cleaned from the beach area every single day. The food is very... More

This was our fourth visit to this resort and needless to say that we will be going there again very soon. The service and food was excellent. We were in the Royal Service and our two butlers Rey and Niorge went out of their way for us and we greatly appreciated the service they gave us. Thanks guys.
