We had the pleasure of staying at this incredible resort from October 10th-24th, and it was our best trip to date. I do apologize for the lateness and lengthiness of the review in advance, when I am researching I like to know little details, so hopefully this is helpful to someone. :) We would not hesitate to return, or recommend...

What a lovely resort, so peaceful and relaxing. After the 9hr flight from Gatwick, our easy transfer to the hotel was welcomed. We were impressed with the size of our room, a junior suite, but did feel that the décor was a little ‘tired’ During our stay the room fire alarm went off at 3.30 one morning which was some-what...

Please note that this review will be broken down into 4 sections, each of which I will use the TA rating system of 5 stars maximum. We stayed in the basic Junior Suites, Room # 3525. Our first trip to the PRDO after multiple trips to other resorts in the Holguin area. As noted in previous reviews transfer to and... More

Rio de Oro is as stress free a vacation as you might want. My wife and I have just enjoyed the hospitality afforded us at this wonderfully run and professionally executed Resort. To clarify the content of this review, it is based primarily on our experience in the Royal Service Section of the Resort. We have travelled extensively throughout Cuba... More

I returned to Paradisus this year and found some minor improvements. The broken netting protecting the dining room from birds has been replaced, but the birds are still there, and the staff don't know what to do to get rid of them. The monstrously huge, irregular-shaped pool is terrific. The selection of fish to be cooked to your liking is... More

We just got back from our honeymoon. We visited from Dec 2 to Dec 9, 2014 and will be returning to the Paradisus again. The hotel was clean, the staff were fantastic, the food was amazing. We have no complaints at all and have been recommending the hotel and spa to everyone.

At the outset I would like to say that I am an Aquaphobe or Galeophobic. Either which ways being on a beach resort surround by water and water related activities I was firmly planted on land.

After a long ole flight from Gatwick it was a welcome sight once we pulled up the Paradisus to be given a chilled glass of bubbly, and after a short while we were ensconced to our room, Block, 35, the exact block I had asked for and the corner suite on the 1st floor so we were very happy indeed!...

Our stay in March 2014 was part of a tailor made holiday to Cuba and despite missing a night due to internal flight delays this hotel outshone the other 5 star hotels we stayed in. The location, gardens, quality of rooms, beach, pool, excellent cuisine and professional staff together with fabulous weather made our holiday. We have therefore decided to... More

This place is incredible. I got married here, and it exceeded every expectation. Such amazing staff, food, facilities, and service. Also, they have free scuba diving! I went scuba diving - 2 dives a day every day except my wedding day. They have great room service & tonnes of activities. You won't regret it if you come here!!!
