Why we recommend Paradisus Rio de Oro Resort & Spa

The Paradisus is located opposite a stunning coral reef rich in flora and fauna and surrounded by four of the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean. Our preferred hotel in the Varadero hotel zone, it’s set in one of the more secluded and exclusive locations in the area. Book a room with Royal Service which comes with a separate concierge and access to a private pool and beach to enhance your stay. Away from your room, the facilities here are fantastic with a plethora of bars and restaurants to choose from.
