Not much to add from my previous reviews for this resort. Still loved it wound down completly as was the aim. We found all the staff excellent and could not do enough for you from the cleaners, entertainment crew, barstaff, waiters & waitresses, pool bars to the gardeners all excellent you should be very proud of them. I gather that... More

We have commented on the lovely, friendly staff at Paradisus in previous reviews and once again were impressed by how helpful and warm everyone continued to be. We were greeted as long-lost relatives, even by those who did not know us well. As usual,the food and wine were excellent, the pools were clean and well maintained, and our room was... More

Rather than repeat many of the positive things others have posted about PRDO, all of which are deserved, I'd like to offer a few tips and observations. We asked one of the staff members about the annoying practice of 'reserving' choice spots around the pool for the day. He explained that the resort tried to fix that problem some time... More

We stayed at the Paradisus for a week in April in a Junior Suite. the hotel was apparently full. When writing a review I am mindful that this is Cuba and as such certain things readily available elsewhere are not. That said you need to compare it to something and as such I think it is fair to compare it... More

We have just finished first visit to Cuba and this Hotel. It has a fantastic position and outlook its a pity the rest of it did not live up to the brochures. Had I booked a 3 star resort I would have been very pleased but having booked a 5 star resort which can only be attributed to the location... More

We came home Wednesday after spending a week here. It was our first ever trip so we didn't have anything to compare it to, but we really did have a great time. We were told we chose a great place to go for our first ever trip. However, finding something to compare in future years may be difficult. Lol Drinks... More

We stayed at the Paradisus Rio de Oro Resort & Spa April 9 to 16 and we would definitely return for another week in paradise. As a chef I can say the food was well prepared, always fresh and nicely presented. The buffet was a bit repetitive as in most resorts, but the wide selection made for an endless variety... More

I have been to cuba 6 times, three times in 5 stars and 3 times in 4 and 4.5. while cuban vacations are great because of generally cheap prices, resorts arent 5 stars and there are things that canadians dont expect, like low water pressure or power outage. also size of resort was big so walking to the beach was...

Wonderful hotel and staff my second visit could do with upgrading repeat guest but they have so many they do not have the rooms. I'll be back. The gardens are very well looked after and the beach and free to use sailing,when it's not to windy, are excellent. Add in the free to use scuba diving at a nearby hotel... More
