Me and my boyfriend visited cuba for 2 weeks in September for a relaxing holiday and we was beyond satisfied! I cannot understand how people are moaning about this hotel at all! We was greeted with... Read more champagne on arrival, our room updated to a king size bed and newly renovated room, and our bags taken for us without lifting a finger. The rooms were very clean and tidy everyday and our maid did lovely different little towel displays. Any cocktail you like are available and not shy with the measures either! Nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff everyone were so polite. The food was lovely there's a buffet restaurant with lots of choice, most made in front of you, including omlettes, pancakes, a selection of meats and fish, pasta made fresh. The pool restaurant is open 24/7 serving food and drinks. The beach was by far my favourite the nicest beach ive ever seen, there was also a little hut bar there with a bbq everyday lunch time and live bands. The waiters and waitresses are always around asking if you would like something to drink. Our rep was also the best rep ive ever come across so if you've booked with Thomas Cook and get Anna your in for treat! Nothing is too much trouble and Anna will be there in the hotel for any questions or even just to have a drink and say hello! The restaurants are great although we was sad to hear that 2 were closed. Once we asked thought we was quickly upgraded to royal service where the food and service was amazing! One of the bar men frank was one of the kindest people I've met always going the extra mile to help his customers! Tipping goes a long way in cuba as the people have very little compared to us. We also left our toiletries for our maid as these are a luxury to cuban people. The trips are great value for money and loads of fun! Havana was really interesting and you learn alot about cuba and get to see everything! My favourite was the catamaran with dolphins, a must! I could go on and on about how great this holiday was and the hotel and people themselves! Ignore the bad reviews you will not be disappointed! Thank you paradisus for a fabulous holiday :-) Read less

You have already read reviews ,some good, some bad, some really awful. This is our review as a family. We arrived on 17th August at about 2000hrs after a long journey on a not so comfortable Virgin... Read more jumbo. We were greeted by a nice drink ,a big smile and a welcome. We were given two rooms, all our luggage was carried for us and a ride in a Golf buggy. The rooms weren't very nice as they felt damp, musty and old. I contacted reception and told to hang on till morning and talk to our English liaison butler called DECLANA she was brilliant. She apologised for our rooms, we should have been given different rooms, mistake made by communication breakdown. Declana took us to our new rooms.........what a difference, clean new refurbished to a high standard, beds really good,mini bar stocked with beer and soft drinks. Overall a complete turn around. She told us to contact her whenever we wanted something no matter how small or trivial.... Later on our first day we were given an envelope it contained reservations for the whole week in every restaurant in the hotel. Most of the restaurants were good but we couldn't get on with the FUSION just not to our taste. Italian was our favourite we ate there quite a few times. The main buffet restaurant had some delicious dishes and always something to eat for everyone of us. The beach was the best beach we have been to for many years and the sea was calm and clean and free of seaweed. Plenty of loungers all over the complex you never had to fight to reserve one. The massages we had( including our 7 yr old granddaughters) were brilliant and the sauna, steam and hydro massage afterwards was terrific for the one price Please note ..... there are cats, there are flies but they were not off putting, annoying ..yes but we only saw three cats at the most. Our thanks to JAMILA in the buffet who served us not just food but with the most engaging smile and very good English as well as all the other staff who treated us not as tourists but as friends In conclusion..... YES there are faults but this is CUBA things are harder to come by ask the locals,we did,its an eye opener................don't expect gold standard ,these people do the best they can for you....THANK YOU!!!!!! We stayed from 17th August 2015 til 31st A 2015 a family of 5 ..... 2 over 60 yrs old..... 2 over 30 yrs and 1over 6yr old(going on 16...) My thanks to all the staff of PARADISUS It really does mean Paradise in English. We will be back............................. Read less
