Stayed in July 2006 with our family (Parents- early 50's, and three children- 20, 24, 25) Room- booked two rooms, both superior junior suites. Very impressed upon arrival. Nice outdoor private showers, canopy beds, and space. Nice hammock and private balcony on ground level. However... we had some major room problems that consequently required us to switch rooms and these... More

My husband and I stayed at PRDO from Jan 10 - 17, 2008. It was our honeymoon, and the PRDO really exceeded our expectations. FLIGHT: We flew with Air Canada and service was great. Our tour rep, Camilo, helped pass the time on the bus ride to the hotel with humourous commentary and great tips on vacationing in Cuba. The... More

The positives are a stunning location, staff that are almost uniformly friendly, rooms that are comfortable and well equipped,great food both in the buffet and the specialty restaurants.Activities are varied although for the younger male visitor the excellent basketball and football/ soccer facilities should have been better promoted. Surprisingly the service in the buffet varied from excellent to indifferent on... More

Room: 4 star. A little old and tired, yet very charming. I mean we had a canopy over our bed and it was a basic suit. That and room had a sunken floor, nice big balcony, fully filled fridge...etc. All good. Considering that we practically never stayed there except sleeping, it did the trick. The only minor negative comment about... More

My gal and I just got back from this hotel, I have no idea what these other people expect when they travel. We experienced the ultimate holiday, in the last 30 months, we have travelled to Hawaii, Portugal, Mexico, Indonesia, Las Vegas, Bahamas and this is by far the best. My gal is a 5 star lady only, the service,... More

We had a 2 week break at this hotel through First Choice Holidays in September / October 2007. We had a fabulous holiday all in all very relaxing. We were surprised at how very green Cuba is! With the rooms dotted in blocks around the complex you get to experience Cuba's natural beauty. I have to say that when we... More

We totally enjoyed our stay at this resort and plan on returning soon. The moment we got off the bus we were greeted with a glass of champagne and speedy and efficient service at check-in. We arrived quite late and the staff made every effort to see that we were comfortable and fed. The next morning, my plan was to... More
