Paradisus Rio de Oro, Cuba

Paradisus Rio de Oro, Cuba

This beautiful stunning retreat is a slice of tropical heaven.


Staying at the wonderful Paradisus Rio de Oro. Travelling with Thomas Cook holidays, from boarding the aircraft in Manchester to flying out, to our return home 15 days later. It was one of the most amazing destinations we have ever visited.

Located in the Bahia de Naranjo Natural Park, in Playa Esmeralda, on the northern coast of Holguin province.

Staying in a suite which there are only two in the complex, they are double size rooms, you get your lovely bedroom with modern en-suite. The other room which had two single beds and was used for luggage storage and also our dressing room. The bonus is you get two balcony’s with beautiful garden views around the block, which for those interested was 35.

The staff were all wonderful and very friendly, with nothing too much trouble. 

Here is a guide to the hotel and grounds.



Crystal waters to world class spa treatments. Take time out at this exciting destination

The Esmerelda beach is stunning with clear blue waters, with the opportunity to snorkel on the reef just a few yards from the shoreline. To be honest I could write a book about what we saw and experienced on this trip. I would certainly urge anyone who is thinking of visiting the Caribbean to take a look at this marvellous country and hotel. 

The spa is another quality activity, relax and let the world go by, there are numerous treatments and massages you can have, and the private swimming pool and beach are to die for!

If in doubt about your next vacation, just book at Cuba's finest resort, the Paradisus Rio de Oro and take away some amazing memories that will last a lifetime.
