Just landed back a couple of hours ago. We still feel really chilled out after experiencing the Royal Service. The place is really lovely, our room was overlooking trees but was close by to the lobby so we could walk to the Royal service area and have a drink and eat. The pools were clean and well kept, very relaxing,...

We returned from the Paradisus on 15th August following a two week stay. I have to say that the hotel overall was absolutely fabulous! I have stayed in Cuba before in Cayo Coco and have to say that my husband was quite reluctant to visit this country again. Our doubts were quickly put aside as we sampled all that the...

Spent a week at this resort from 13/08/12 and I must say it was one of the best holidays I have had. The hotel was great apart from a visit from the frogs in our room. But they were harmless. The staff were great, approachable, friendly and attentive. The food was variable and there is something for everybody, if you...

We have just come back from the PRDO and had a fantastic holiday.

We stayed for 2 weeks this August for our Honeymoon and we have honestly had the most perfect time. The resort is fantastic, there is just so much to do!

We spent 2 weeks at this hotel in March 2012 and cannot praise it enough! What this country may lack in wealth it makes up for by the bucket-load in personality, humour, courtesy and willingness to please.
