Paradisus Rio De Oro Resort And Spa

Star Rating: 5* paradisus rio de oro resort and spa   Resort: guardalavaca   Destination: cuba

Paradisus Rio De Oro Resort And Spa Overview

The 5* beachfront Playa Pesquero offers exclusive holiday retreats against a beautiful landscape of sparkling turquoise waters and white sands in Guardalavaca. With activities galore and four a la carte restaurants – this Platinum hotel really takes some beating.

When it comes to the opinion of worldwide travellers that have visited this outstanding hotel, TripAdvisor seriously rates the Paradisus Rio de Oro. Not only did it win the 'Best for Romance' award in their 2008 Travellers' Choice Awards but it's been voted the best hotel in Guardalavaca, too. And when you cast your eye over this 5-star, adults-only hotel, you’ll see why.

For a start, it’s got natural beauty on its side. Spread out next to the white sands of Playa Esmeralda beach, it overlooks a beautiful coral reef. The clear turquoise waters are perfect for kayaking and snorkelling.

Then there’s its impressive list of facilities. Two huge lagoon-like pools wrap around palm-edged terraces and curve up to a big swim-up bar. Add plenty of sunbeds and thatched pergolas and you'll find it hard to tear yourself away.

Next, you’ve got six restaurants and five bars vying for your attention. Five of the restaurants are à la carte and serve everything from Japanese and international cuisine to Mediterranean and Creole cuisine. And as for the bars, they come in all guises – but it's the karaoke-come-disco bar that's the liveliest.

This place doesn't fall short on looks, either. In fact, it's got a style all of its own. Statues, water features and bold artwork adorn the lobby areas, while the bedrooms are a touch calmer. Painted in sunshine yellow, they're roomy, light spaces with big windows and doors that lead to a balcony or terrace. And they all come with two double beds or one king-size bed, as well as satellite TVs, fridges and air-conditioning.
