I've been here 2 days and already know I would never come back. The service is awful when you're lucky enough to get any. The reception will say anything when they don't have an answer instead of actually finding out the answer. I asked for 2 beds, they confirmed 3 times that yes the room had 2 beds. My 83 yr old Dad had to lug his own hand bag (heavy) because they only drive your bags to the room, not you. When we finally get there, one bed. It was close to an hour later when we finally got "the only room in the hotel with 2 beds" in a hotel filled at far from full capacity. Forget about booking the a la carte restaurants. The guy is never there! They keep telling you in 15 min, then, oh he's gone, come back at 9am. Not there at 9am because now it's 10-4pm. And on and on. The service in the dining hall is sporadic. Good luck getting your coffee or drink while you're actually eating. They don't look up at the tables so they don't have to actually serve. This was a birthday gift to my Dad, he's so low maintenance and lives simply, even he looked at me at breakfast and said" the service is lousy". All those great reviews about how warm and friendly and like family every one is...I have no idea where that is, maybe there are 2 hotels with the same name. I would say we got good service in 1/5 of the employees and they deserve medals. We brought a ton of close and things to give to the employees but most of it will go to the hard working outdoor workers who keep the place very clean. If you want a vacation where you can relax, don't come here. I've got 12 days to go and then never again.

Sense covid hit this is our first trip outside of the country since early 2020. This resort is only 15 minutes away from the airport which is really convenient. The resort is very nice, clean and amazing Beach. The staff here looks after all your needs and always have a smile. Ailen is a server at the main lobby bar, and every morning when she saw me coming she would have my coffee ready for me at the table, an amazing young lady. As a lot of people are aware, people leave reviews about the food at the resorts not being very good or lack of food, I can say that this resort has a very good variety and never running out, there is always something on the buffet or the ala carte that we enjoyed.

Ailen in the front lobby bar is amazing! She remembers your drink, so pleasant and always with a smile 😃 It is our first trip to this resort and when we first arrived I was unsure that I would like it. But we spent the extra money to upgrade ( well worth the $$) it was the vacay we were looking for .. nothing to do but relax and sit by the water. Food was blah but could always find something to eat. Well worth the money we spent which was not much 😉 The PCR testing was painless and well organized

We have been to Cuba, mainly Cayo Coco, many times and decided to try Hotel Playa Paraiso this time. We were not disappointed. This resort is BEAUTIFUL! The grounds are impeccably cared for. It feels very lush and tropical, no matter where you are...even while sitting in the lobby. The lobby is very open, yet cozy, and well ventilated. The staff are AMAZING! Always friendly and attentive to all of their guests. Food is good, with lots to choose from. If you are fussy about condiments, bring your own. Pool is very clean, with just the right amount of activities and music throughout the day. We only had one morning that we found it to be much too loud. The rooms are clean. Beach is beautiful. WiFi is free, and works very well in the lobby and around the pool if you are on the side nearest the lobby. Public washrooms were clean, and always had toilet paper. Just a heads up.....Watch your towels. We left ours for a couple minutes and they were taken. This is not a problem we have ever encountered, and not the fault of the resort in any way. The only real negative that we experienced, was while trying to get pizza at lunch. Some guests were lining up and taking up to 40 pizzas!!! I know it is all inclusive, but to be fair to other guests, we felt it should be limited. On that note.....the pizza was amazing!! Thank you to Hector and all the staff at HPP! You know we'll be back!

Waited over 3 hours passed checkout time for our room upon arrival, only to be told it still wasn’t ready. We were 2 of 4 people on our bus to Hotel Playa Paraiso. Once we asked questions about the length of time it takes to clean the rooms *poof* they have a room for us. Hmm. Also to be told this usually costs extra. For what?! What exactly costs extra?! The room you pay for through redtag.ca???! We were not driven to our room, we carried our own luggage across the resort to the room. The room; king size bed, pool facing balcony. Not bad. But certainly not worth 3+ hour wait passed our arrival for. Later that day the power goes out. This resort does have a generator and would only power the main lobby. Needless to say we went to bed without dinner or showers after a very long day of travel. The beach is nice, lots of sharp shells everywhere so watch your step. Tons of seagulls everywhere because people feed them. So watch out for sh*t. Between beach bar, pool bar, snack bar and lobby bar the drinks are not consistent at all, and get worse towards the beach. There is no attention to detail WHAT SO EVER at this resort. One particular lunch at the 24/hr snack bar we waited over an hour for drinks and hamburgers. My burger had blue plastic in the centre of it!!!!! A la carts can’t speak much about, we went to Italian which was okay. We had booked a Cuba a la cart as well but after the plastic in the meat, we chose to go to the buffet instead. The buffet was the best place to get good food and meet nice people. Particularly one gentlemen who was making omelet’s at breakfast was fantastic, he asked people for their orders in the order they came to the line. Russians just shove their way in. There was also a very lovely pregnant lady who served the fruit. The pools lifeguard Micheal was hands down THE nicest person we met who worked at this resort. He was very friendly, genuinely interested in talking to you. Very nice man GIVE MICHEAL A RAISE! BRING MOSQUITO REPELLENT. The mosquitos are awful towards sunset. Also very tiny flying bugs that sting like a b****. The staff fumigate in the evening using some sort of smoke on the back of a golf cart, as well as the plane that does multiple fly bys between 6-7am. Its loud and will wake you up. Watch your step at night time, there are no lights along the pathways or along the stairwells in the bungalows. The tiles are extremely wet when slippery combined with no lighting equals recipe for disaster. Recommend requesting 3rd floor rooms, staff will do maintenance work in rooms at early hours. On our last morning (travel day) we woke up to no water in our room. No shower, couldn’t flush the toilet. Contrary to most reviews on here (which is why we chose this resort) we were disappointed.
