We had been to the Paradisus in the Royal service section in 2012 and liked it so much we decided to return. After our return trip, we found a great price and decided to go back just 3 weeks later. Here is a combined review for the last two trips which were taken in Sept/Oct. Bus ride, arrival and check... More

We spent 12 glorious days at the Paradisus. We always stay at the Royal service area. You want for nothing at this resort. From the time you are picked up at the airport to the time you leave everything is perfect, you could not ask for a better vacation. The staff is incredible, from the bartenders to the butlers, the... More

We visited Paradisus Rio De Oro on the last week of September. We booked directly through Trip Central to get the Royal Service. The advantage of doing so is that you get a private taxi from the Holguin airport to the resort, which is about a 1hr drive. When we arrived, we were the only clients arriving at the lobby... More

This is our second visit to Paradisus. We booked here a second time thinking there is no way it could top our first trip. We were wrong. We booked an oceanview bungalow...fantastic...but decided to see what Royal Service was all about. We moved rooms the following afternoon and never looked back. The room was fantastic with an oceanview. Huge upgraded... More

We got married at this resort in August 2014. Such a beautiful place, lovely well kept gardens. The wedding gazebo overlooking the sea was stunning and was really well kept and decorated with beautiful flowers on our big day. There were only a few bad points about the resort. I booked the wedding package with Thomas Cook and there policy... More

Just returning from a week at this resort with a friend. Resort was fantastic. Staff were very friendly. Some I met and they remembered me from trip 8 years ago.
