This hotel is very clean and nice if you are looking for the quiet family resort, the butler service is very good , I especially liked the one of the butlers named Ariana , she called her self queen... Read more of butlers and only female butler and I have to say she was the best We had other butler named Lester was a nice guy but he does not do what you ask or not even showing when you call ( what is the point of having butler if you can not get the hold of him) Ariana was opposite was always there for you and was going out of her way to make what you want happened The pool bartender was George again this guy was always looking after you with serving drink and fruit till you tell them no more which still serving you ( amazing service) also the had other bartender for pool bar and lobby which were fantastic people too The staff on the hotel were all nice, only complaint is that there are no entertainment on the royal service and if you looking for dance training and other activities you have to find them your self in the main hotel area not the royal service Remember every thing available for you but you have to ask Great hotel great service for the family Ps: the food in this hotel is fantastic do not know about the buffet since we were only going to the restaurant Read less

Words cannot express, How amazing our trip to Paradisus was, OMG the service here was the Best we have ever experienced. We left this resort feeling like we made Friends, and we will be most... Read more definitely booking again next year, At the buffet in the morning we would be greeted by Liuba and Dianelys these ladies go above and beyond to serve, they made our mornings, with their smiles and greetings, they made us feel so welcomed, at Reception bar, Yarian was there as well to Greet us like long lost cousins, he prepared the best Cappuccino I ever tasted and when he had a little extra time he would create the most amazing designs in the foam, Off to the beach, Marlo would bring me a fresh coconut, with a Heart Carved in the middle, and if he missed us walking by he would check the beach and bring it down to us, Then we would spend the day enjoying the best White sand, Turquoise water Where, Alex, Milo, & Nacho made sure we were in want of nothing !!! Alex would wash the sand from my feet...... incredible service!!!! After a day of this treatment, we would enjoy the fantastic Restaurants if we choose the Buffet for Dinner, they offered entertainment and "Barby" the Chef, would personally recommend different dishes we would try and she was always spot on !! Adriana & Orestes would be our servers for the evening, making our stay most memorable, one evening we were delighted by a "Flash Mob" done by the staff, OMG the signing brought tears to my eyes, everyone "Cheered" Then usually we would finish our evening at the Piano Bar, and this would truly be a Treat as Yaima and Yusmila as well, would greet us with such exuberance, it brought great joy to us in being there. This Resort is beautiful and the location on the Beach is the best !!! The trip into Havana with TuTu, I would do again, the Cigar tour should not be missed, Also next time we will book the Two night tour. We came to Cuba to celebrate our anniversary we stayed for a full 14 day's here at Paradisus, We came away "Overwhelmed" our best Vacation ever !!! One more recommendation .... be sure to book at the Japanese Restaurant here, WOW..... they cook on an open grill and the Expertise here is beyond !!! The staff even made us Paper Flowers.... Thank you all here at Paradisus, Thank you for making our trip beyond our expectations, The staff here should be commended, We look forward to seeing you all again next year !!! I was the lady with the Tattoo of the Mermaid :) xoxo Read less

A nice hotel and a wide stretch of beach with an amazing pool. Clean outdated rooms, with some maintenance problems. The main problem is Cuba not the hotel. Towels were not always ready, not for... Read more the room not for the pool/beach. The food was not especially good, the buffet was better tha the theme restaurants, no soy sauce for a bland sushi, not lemon juice anywhere and also were missing some other stuff in the other hand smokede salmon and prosciuto were overwhelmingly present. Cuban people is very nice, but they are underpayed like no other place, they make between 15 to 30 USD a month, and the last figure for doctors or so, so tipping is a must, they are overeducated for they work, you'll find an engineer serving tables, and a master in math guarding the pool, so for them is a must to get money from somewhere else. The water sport cabin is a government run one, so if you want to sail you must go with a guy from there and just seat to see him skip, and if there's a medium wind they don't work. For the price you'll get a better serviced hotel anywhere else in the caribean, but nowhere with such nice and educated people. Read less

Sep 13, 2014 - Jajalumaca - Prague, Czech Republic

Note: Most comments probably do not apply to rooms marked as Royal Service. They are effectively 2 hotels. The basic one and Royal Service. The reception service was poor (eg. not able to arrange... Read more a paid transport from the airport as we were not booked in the Royal service). Simple issues in the rooms took ages to be resolved. They do not accept US related (rather than US issued) credit cards. Rooms are spacius and clean. You need to set the fridge to a low power to fix the noise but everything else was ok. Internet is expensive and unfriedly to use. There is a wide selection of restaurants and it is critical to book dinners outside the main buffet restaurant (that is somewhat boring and offers undrinkable wine). The food in the Mexican restaurant was actually very good. Japanesee restaurant offers a good show and less good food (probably due to the lack of right indegridients). The sea and beach is absolutely fantastic - warm, slowly getting deeper, beautiful scenery, some fish for snorkelling. Together with an excellent pool this is a kids friendly location. Good fitness and spa. Read less

My husband and I were at this resort for 5 nights in late May. We were only able to book the Butler Service. I don't think that the extra money was worth it. Our room was lovely. Our butlers were... Read more nice. There is a private pool for the exclusive use of guests with butler service. There are restaurants also available only for butler service guests. The consierge bar is open all evening, it's a great place to chat and meet other guests. The pool was extremely quite. No music or games, unlike the main pool at the resort. I would suggest this side of the resort is you are wanting a quite week away. If you are looking for more of a party atmosphere book on the regular side. No wifi in the room, but you can get if for free along with your butler service package. Our vacation was during a slow period for the Cuban resorts, so overall everything was very quite. We have not been to Cuba for about 3 years, and the airport departure lounge has been redone. Very nice as well. Overall a nice 5 nights away, but think we need to look at another Cuban city. We have always gone to Varadero (6 times). We stayed a this resort back in 2001. These butler suites, restaurants, pool and services are relatively new. The remainder of the resort has not changed. In fact, its looks like it needs some updating. Read less
