Four of us stayed here over New Year and had a marvellous time. Most of the other reviews are pretty spot on so I won't waste time duplicating, but in summary: - Terrific grounds, really stunningly kept, lots of new places to discover too - Loads of activities and things to see & do, unlike some other all inclusives I've...

My wife & I stayed at PRDO for 11 nights for our honeymoon. The grounds and beach are absolutely gob-smacking! If you want to go somewhere that you wander round and feel you're in paradise then this is the one. We spent most days on the beach & never failed to get lounger & parasol. White sand, bright turquoise waters... More

This was our first time to Holguin and I’m happy to say would go back. We’ve been to the Paradisus in Veradero, so we booked this Paradisus De Oro for April of 2014. I hope this review provides some candid feedback about the Resort. We were attracted to the flora and fauna of the Holguin region. The hotel was well... More

Me & my brother stayed here for 1 week from the 4th - 11th aug!.. The hotel is totally huge, it's more or a village with bungalows & flats spread all around the place! To get about, the easiest way is to call for a bell boy, they come & collect you & take you to your desired destination in... More

The only complaint we could make about this whole trip is the upgrade on the plane to Thomas Cook Premium - what a complete rip off that was! With other airlines you get complimentary items, which typically include; headsets, drinks, snacks - with Thomas Cook you get NOTHING except a bit of extra leg room. This was our third trip... More
