Our first time in Cuba, and what turned out to be a good choice (thanks to a combination of TripAdvisor and our agent at Travel Counsellors). A fairly large, sprawled out hotel with lots of space, decent beach, great food, top shelf drinks and friendly people,adults only and top end all-inclusive - so here goes some more info. Getting there:... More

We recently returned from our third visit to the Paradisus, staying two weeks at the end of January in the main section of the resort. The Paradisus has the best food we've experienced in Cuba, particularly the best buffet. The a la carte restaurants were good though we actually preferred the buffet most nights. The choices are great and excellent... More

This was our first time at this resort. We found it to be clean, well maintained and quite a nice stay. The best part of this resort was by far the staff. Attentive and enthusiastic every one. The food was good and the beach was absolutely beautiful! Good value for the money. Paid wifi available in the lobby however there... More

Really nice hotel. Food great, staff in restaurants very friendly and helpful entertainment ok. Drinks really good and gardens and beach amazing. The only thing I can complain about is the massage I received it was the worst massage I have ever had, the most expensive one too. Other than that the place was great.

My husband and I stayed here from February 14 - 21, 2015. We chose this resort because it is adults only and we were travelling without our kids. We stayed on the Royal Service side and it was definitely worth the money. Our main goal was to be somewhere quiet and beautiful where we could relax. We are in our... More

Excellent place to stay, the food was great as Cuba is not known for the food. The beach restaurant was excellent, we had calamari which was to die for and the grilled haddock was mouthwatering! We were there just before opening and manage to get a table without being put on a waiting list. Do not leave with out trying!... More
