A Postitive Review of the Paradisus Rio de Oro, in Holguin Cuba

My Travel Consultant: Monica Purdon

Kathy, Strathroy - (trip to Holguin Cuba)

We really enjoyed this resort in Cuba. It was very clean. We had absolutely no complaints regarding food. We went to 3 of the 4 A La Cartes which were all very good. We missed the Japanese one which I did hear was really good.

The rooms were clean and they are updating the bathrooms in all the rooms by the sounds of it. We did not go to the spa for any treatments but we did go and have a look around and if we were there longer would definitely spent a day there.

The beaches were clean and water sports were included (did not cost extra) which we didn’t realize until the last day but still managed to have a catamaran ride (had to do a little begging). These should be booked at least a day in advance. We took a horse and buggy ride off the resort to a village and small town and felt completely safe.

The nightly entertainment was typical of Caribbean resorts but was enjoyable. They had activities going on all through the day for anyone that wanted to keep busy.

Overall the resort was very quiet. I would say they dynamics were probably more over 40 year-olds with a few younger couples so may be better for older people that just want a relaxing vacation. I guess went you go away and feel like you have been gone longer then you were it is a sign of a nice relaxing week. We would absolutely recommend this resort to others. I believe it was good value for the money.

I want to go to Holguin
