Beautiful resort with staff that make you feel you have made new friends. Every effort is made for you to have a great holiday. There are plenty of quiet chill area's with some fun event's around the pool area late in the afternoons.

Amazing beach, friendly staff and beautiful grounds. The rooms are clean and modern, nothing negative to say about this place at all. Can't wait to visit it again. If you travel a little east of the beach there is a beautiful and private cove you should visit.

Cannot fault this resort in any way, our stay was perfect from arrival to departure. Room was large and spotlessly clean. Food varied and excellent in buffet and a la carte restaurants. Mediterranean is a must. Also try the beach restaurant at lunch, service is great. If you are looking for a holiday with relaxation, lovely pool and beach areas...

Paradisus Rio de Oro, Royal Service, Holguin, is a wonderful resort in a beautiful natural environment, among the best resorts and hotels that I visited in the 5 continents (I compare it to Taj hotels, resorts and palaces in India, or to the Mandarin Oriental around the World). But one should stress the “Royal Service”, because outside the Royal Service,...
