We stayed here for 10 nights on our honeymoon. On viewing our marriage certificate they upgraded us to a sea view room,which was stunning. The pool was lovely,and in early October nearly all our own... Read more ! The beach is absolutely stunning, with lots of beds and shaded spots to give you a break from the heat. All the bars are good and run by friendly staff,and if you give a pesos tip every now and again you'll notice your drinks getting even better! The buffet is good,with a large variety to choose from, but the only restraunt we liked was the romantica. Cuban fusion was terrible,though they tried, but I had 3 pieces of a toothpick buried in my chicken which I only found while I was chewing. The shop was very expensive,so make sure you bring mosquito repellent with you. If you want a relaxing,lazy,luxurious holiday, I can't see this being beaten anywhere in Cuba. Read less

Although Paradisus wasn't our destination I'm glad to write a review based on a day visit to this beautiful resort all arranged by our good friend Magby Almanza who's a public relation personal, of... Read more course with the help of the manager whom I have to apologize for not remembering his name but I'm very grateful none the less. We were a group of 6 people and we visited this property I believe on Oct. 4th.We meet Magby at the front lobby which she pleasantly took us to a tour of the grounds, precisely through the "Royal Service area". The grounds are very spacious and immaculate maintained, the pools look amazingly big and inviting, the Spa is totally beautiful and of course the rooms are extra modem and just breath taken with an outside shower that is totally incredible. We were very impressed and captivated by all the luxury of this place, certainly a potential future destination. Then we proceeded to the fine restaurant on the Royal Service area which we had a wonderful lunch served by friendly staff of course the friendly people of Cuba. This property of course is situated on a beautiful stretch piece of beach, although the Royal Service area doesn't have access to a great sandy beach it shouldn't be a problem finding a spot to swim on this beautiful ocean and of course the pools are just perfect that you may just stay by the pool. Whatever the mood is I'm sure anyone will find a pleasant leisure time by the pool or on the beach. I'd like to thank once again to our host Magby for the opportunity of viewing this beautiful property and for her time with us even though it was extremely hot she seemed pleased to show us around...Thanks Magdy and from what we saw all I can say is that I definitely would recommend Paradisus Varadero to anyone who's planning a great holiday. Perhaps someday in the future I'll be a candidate with my fellow travelers. In the meantime we have the memory of seeing Paradisus Varadero and totally enchanted by the charm of all staff involved in our short visit. Muchas gracias!! Read less

This is our third adventure at the Paradisus Resort and Spa in Varadero, Cuba. We thought for sure it couldn't get any better. However we were yet again proven wrong. The resort is gorgeous, well... Read more maintained, quite elegant and luxurious. We have always selected the Royal Service and have never been disappointed with our choice. Our room was beautiful and very well maintained during our stay. We loved the ocean view and the close proximity to the pool. Our refrigerator was well stocked especially after we left a tip for the service. The food has always been excellent, but we did find the quality and selection in the buffet to have been reduced this year. The Mexican Restaurant and the dining room at the Royal Service area was very good. My diet does restrict me from several of the choices since I have no meat or dairy in it. However it didn't compromise my food intake during our previous visits. There was always plenty of variety for me especially at the buffet. This year however it was not the case. The staff at this resort are so amazing and wonderful. The know their jobs and perform them effortlessly and with grace and joy. We would like to acknowledge several who went out of their way to ensure our stay was the delightful experience it was. Eldys Lantigua Batista, Ruben, Lisette, Louis, Rolando and all the staff in the office area of the Royal Services you are wonderful and enhanced our visit to the maximum. Thank you so much for all that you did for us. Ray and the staff in the Royal Services bar you rock. Thank you for your sense of humour, your cheerful disposition and for the great conversations. Your bar is so well organized and efficient. Thank you. In the Royal Services Restaurant, a huge thank you to the great team of staff who work so well together to provide us with our meals. Yanet, Kate and all the great people who work with you. You are the best. We always enjoyed our meals and conversations with you. You know how to run a smooth operation. Thank you. At the pool in the Royal Services, what a team there. Everyone is always so cheerful and so well organized. They seem to know our needs and desires before we do. Jorje, Liadami, Marvin, Darwin and all the others behind the scenes, thank you for an amazing holiday. Iyavani (sorry if this is spelled wrong) thank you for the great care you give to grounds at the Royal Services. You make everything so beautiful. In the Mexican Restaurant Melena, Arrasay, Yassmine thank you for two wonderful evenings. In the main bar Thank you Leidy Laidy for such wonderful service and your delightful smile. All in al I highly recommend this great resort especially the Royal Services venue. Read less
