Myself and my husband visited Paradisus Rio De Oro from 12th September 2012, for two weeks of total relaxation. From arrival to leaving it was total bliss. The food was lovely, the place itself was gorgeous and the people, from cleaners to management were the most smiley and pleasant people you could meet. The beaches are just the best, the...

We have just returned from a two week stay at this hotel. Overall it was pretty good, although as usual the majority of the complex cannot really be described as true five star. The 'Royal Service' is however very much five star and actually almost feels like a totally seperate hotel. We spent the first night in a standard room...

We have just returned from a 2 week stay. On arrival a glass of champagne, cool cloths were handed over whilst checking in and it was very efficient. Bell boys take you to your room.

From our arrival to this hotel my boyfriend and I noticed the lack of glamour look of the front lobby for a 5 star hotel. (mind you, we've been to Punta Cana at Catalonia Royal, and the landscaping leading to the lobby was breathtaking and the lobby absolutely gorgeous). Check in was a non-issue. Realized on the way to our...

For our 6th visit to Cuba we chose return to the Paradisus Rio de Oro, which proved to be a relaxing and romantic location for exploring the real Cuba during our stay there last year.
