We traveled to Paradisus in July. While the resort has probably the best grounds/landscaping/pool and beach in Varadero it appears to be lacking in other areas including food and facilities. As this... Read more place was priced above virtually all other resorts in Varadero our expectations were a bit higher. The food in the main buffet was mediocre, also the buffet is not an enclosed space with air conditioning so when its really hot outside your dinning experience is affected. Also, the birds would get into the food constantly. They really need to put a door at the entrance. Many facilities including public washrooms were either closed or in a state of disrepair (I know it is the low season but there is no reason to run out of toilet paper). The pool table and tennis tables literally falling apart. We stayed at the Royal Service section which has great rooms, by far best we've seen in Cuba. The a la carte restaurants are decent. The Royal Service restaurant was excellent. The staff were generally great, but that's been our experience in all Cuban resorts. Read less

We returned from this hotel on Saturday having celebrated our wedding there with family and friends on August 6th and it was fantastic from start to finish. The staff are so friendly and helpful and... Read more willing to go that extra mile to ensure you have a pleasant stay. The Thomas Cook rep, Ana, was superb-the best we have had in over ten years travelling on Thomas Cook holidays. She made it her priority to make sure that everyone was well looked after and even came to our wedding to pass on her congratulations! We visited all but the Japanese a la carte restaurants which were very good, especially the Italian restaurant which is well worth the visit. The resort was not too busy which suited us well and there is plenty of entertainment on offer. The Michael Jackson show was absolutely fantastic. The location of the hotel is stunning with the beautiful views of the grounds, the white sandy beaches and the crystal clear sea waters. Our wedding day was planned so smoothly by the wedding planner, Dariadne, who dealt with us so wonderfully to ensure our day was so special. In our second week, we were upgraded to the Royal Service which was an amazing experience. We will continue to recommend this hotel to others because of how brilliant it was! Read less

Just got home yesterday from Paradisus Varadero. Overall, it was a good experience. The food was better that most of the all inclusive resorts that I have been to with lots of variety. Visited... Read more two of the a la cartes, the Cuban Fusion one was ok but the Japanese one was fantastic, not only a meal but also a show. The pool facilities were great, I can't say anything more there. Big pool with lots of nooks for kids to explore or adults to find a quiet spot. The beach was typical Varadero, white, sandy a crystal clear water. Our room was good. The bathroom could use an upgrade but for the amount of time we spent in our room it wasn't a concern. Service was good, no real concerns there. When the restaurant or the bar get really busy it can take some time but you would find that problem anywhere. My only concern last week was that several times, mostly in the evening, there were power outages. Most were short enough to not be a bother. Not sure if it was a resort specific issue, or a wider one though. Read less

Myself, my husband and daughter went to Cuba at Easter 2014 to celebrate my 50th and my daughter's 21st. We did the usual few days in Havana and then onto the coast for some down time. From the... Read more minute we arrived at this hotel and met Magby (the hotel liaison for UK tourists) we were struck by how fantastic the customer service was. Nothing was too much trouble. We had an amazing stay and would love to return one day! Read less
