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.

Good value for money. Nice room, great pool area and beach. Good food and drinks and helpful staff. Been to Cuba before and decided on an overnight stay in Santiago de Cuba which was really good and highly recommended. Nothing else to do in the area though and whilst we weren't on honeymoon lots of people in the hotel were,... More

I visited the Paradisus Rio de Oro with my parents from November 4 - 11th. We had a wonderful visit overall, but there are some aspects of the resort that could use improvement. Pros: 1. Excellent service - We really had a wonderful time mainly because of the people and staff that we met. The staff were kind and generous,... More

Amazing stay at Paradisus Rio de Oro, we came back last week and loved every bit of it. You wont feel you are missing out anything on food, a la carte restaurants served great delicious dishes, fresh fish and shrimp was in abundance. Very clean, good service, beach was lovely except for the swampy smell from the nearby lagoon. Loved... More

My husband and I returned from this resort a week ago. We had a wonderful, relaxing week long stay. From the check in to the check out, everything ran smoothly. The resort is very clean and the grounds are well manicured (the gardeners are such hard workers and so friendly). I have been to 8 resorts in Cuba and this... More

Could not have asked for a better vacation spot. Excellent service from all of the staff. The food was outstanding. Something for even the pickiest eater like me. The room was always clean and towels always replaced. The only negative thing would be that there are not enough chairs around the pool. The grounds were spectacular. Not a bad thing... More

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Cuba but were disappointed with some elements at the Paradisus. I have been to Cuba twice previously and found the food to be excellent however on this visit this was not the case, there was a distinct lack of variance with potatoes and fresh vegetables (in fact for 10 out of...

A very beautiful spot to relax! My husband and I as well as another couple enjoyed all the a la carte restaurants--especially Mediterranean. The French one had very good food, but painfully slow service (even for the French!); very good Diabla pizzas at the beach restaurant, a pig roast lunch on Sat. was also enjoyed. Our last night we reserved... More

My wife and I were at the PRDO from the 1st to the 8th of November. Being returning guests obviously means that we love this place. We do not bother with the Royal Service (RS) as we prefer to be in the main hotel and found the RS area to be a bit too quiet for our needs. But do... More
