SUPER RESORT, GREAT VACATION

Suzanne H (St. Marys, Canada) on Dec 06, 2022

So we chose this resort because a friend told us. Apon arrival its great, go grab a beer while waiting for check in at lobby bar.we had an ocean deluxe room we upgraded when we arrived cost $165 USD. Beach is clean drops off fairly quickly. Its rocky in areas but perfect for swimming and u can walk to the other resort. Lots of chairs at beach and pool no need to panic and get up early. We put towels out at 10am. Pesos are no longer wanted, the only place we used them was Guardalavaca beach to buy mohitos. The market takes USD or Canadian only. For tipping we used small USD bills and $5 canadian bills, they dont want pesos. The horse and buggy ride to guardalavaca was $40 uSD but we never bargained. Its 4km and can get a taxi or rent a scooter$25USD. The food was limited, they dont have alot right now due to season. No fruit except apples,sometimes papaya. We found breakfast good and ate lunch at the beach bar. Get the burger its amazing. Late night pizza at the pool bar is good and open 24hrs. There is nightly entertainment and then a disco from 11-2am with a dj. Tip these guys good because they hardly see any patrons. If you are looking to give stuff the maids in lobby and gardeners dont see alot and are appreciative of, medicine,vitamins,razors,shoes,cell phones,jeans,socks,underwear,shampoo,toothpaste,deodorant. We basically gave the lobby maid cleaner all of our toiletries when we left. Even our 1st aid kid. There are alot of tiny lizards all over the resort. The view from the pool is amazing and beach is not far. Free wifi but mostly it worked in our room, some got it in the lobby. We did the catamaran excursion $69USD each. Was alot of fun and held starfish and sea urchins as well as lots of fish to see. With amazing lunch. Overall all adults mostly from ontario and some germans there. People were friendly. I would definetly go back. Food is the same after awhile but its the beach u go for. They also had no pina colada mix, but instead we had mohitos or rum cream or rum and coke. No big deal, make the best while u are there. ENJOY You wont be dissapointed.

My new gem in Cuba!

yainier1982 (Glendale, California) on Dec 04, 2022

Rio de Oro, I cannot express how happy I am with the memories I lived surrounded by the most beautiful gardens, Esmeralda's turquoise waters and caring people pampering me and my family every single minute. It's a piece of heaven on earth! I booked my five-day trip with Solways ( great price and no issues). Reservations Dept took care of all our requests prior to arrive at the resort. Welcome cocktail was a plus and a surprising touch that we really appreciated. Rooms were ready at early check in. Our three rooms were perfectly located and well decorated. The resort is very intimate and meticulously taken care of ( lush gardens, pieces of art everywhere-paintings, sculptures, variety of arquitectural patterns) all in perfect harmony with mother nature. It's an ecological resort after all. Customer service is topnotch. Everyone is smiling and welcoming. Something called my attention during my stay and Marine ( CS Dept), addressed my concern right away in a very professional way. Thank you so much, Marine! We really appreciated your time and courtesies. Meals were tasty, well presented and varied. Beach, pools and entertainment were great as well. I hope we can visit again soon! Do not hesitate to book this resort, please! Paradisus Rio de Oro won't disappoint you!
