What We Say

In our opinion, this well-established and upmarket haven is the best beach hotel in Cuba and is highly recommended for those venturing to the east of the island.

An ideal location for weddings and honeymoons, the Paradisus Rio De Oro offers the ultimate in luxury in Cuba and a very relaxing stay.

The private beach available to Royal Service guests is stunningly beautiful and this private Royal Service area offers an extra special memorable stay.
