Welcome to the Paradisus Rio de Oro and this time in our final episode of our Cuban adventure we’re going to be taking you on a walk around the hotel and the grounds At the check in desk you can exchange your money they will give you lots of information about your stay at the hotel including room service and also where to make bookings, for example a day in the Spa For excursions you will have to see your rep who will be around from time to time. As you enter the complex you’re greeted by a beautiful setting the lobby has been recreated to look like a native village as you wander through you will see the charm and comfort that awaits tropical plants, fountains and more can be seen giving an air of total relaxation within the environment. This is the main bar area in the lobby and is where you will find most guests will congregate after dinner in the evenings Other places to look out for inside the lobby are the tourist shop where you can buy all your gifts and souvenirs to take back home along with an internet centre, where cards can be purchased to give you access to your social media buddies beware though the service is not like it is in other parts of the world, and can be tediously slow at times! Cuba of course is the home of cigar making so why not check out their shop for your favourite brand or view the other numerous ones they have on offer With 4 al a carte restaurants on the complex you’ll never be spoilt for choice, there is always something to satisfy This is the entrance to the Japanese restaurant the others include, Cuban, Mediterranean and El Patio The Esmerelda beach at Paradisus is beautiful with it’s white sands and crystal clear waters snorkelling is a perfect activity with coral reefs just a few yards from the shoreline More people are getting married abroad today than ever before and the Paradisus offers a stunning location their wedding gazebo right on the ocean front The gazebo can also be hired for other special occasions such as birthday and anniversary romantic meals for two! At the top of the complex at the Paradisus is another area of outstanding beauty, this being the botanic garden wander around , see magnificent tropical plants and fruit alongside some interesting statues and outbuildings showing a different side to Cuban culture It’s a perfect place to sit and reflect The hotel has a choice of swimming pools however, the main pool is very impressive and set in a fantastic location surrounded by flora and fauna it includes a swim up bar, a splash area and a whirl pool the area also has Cabanas for those wishing to take a break from the intense sun. For our stay at the Paradisus we had one of two suites on offer at the hotel these are basically doubled size rooms compared to other guest rooms the bathroom has a clean modern look about it and the bedrooms are really comfortable with good size beds and come with all the little extras you’d expect at a five star location the adjoining room has two single beds but we used this mainly as a dressing room and for luggage storage with access to two balconies you get some lovely views of the gardens around the block.
Tour Guide: HASTA LA VISTA A little time then for some last minute souvenir shopping before we board our Thomas Cook flight back to Manchester It’s just over nine hours, but we were sat in the premium area of the aircraft which is great value and worth considering on any of their long haul flights So it’s time to head back, it’s been a wonderful trip and a visit that will remain with us for many years people are very warm and take you to their hearts the country is amazing with so much to see and do we hope in this series we have managed to whet your appetite to take flight and visit Cuba possibly unlike any other destination on the planet if you want that perfect Caribbean holiday then look no further than Cuba It’s absolutely AMAZING!
