Paradisus Rio de Oro Resort & Spa in Guardalavaca, Cuba

Part of the Melia group and voted one of TripAdvisor’s "Best Hotels 2012", the Paradisus de Oro Resort and Spa is a modern hotel, for adults only. Situated right on the idyllic, white-sand Esmeralda beach, it’s somewhere you and your partner can both fall in love with.

Set in spacious, green grounds with bungalow-style buildings and a peaceful romantic atmosphere, it’s perfect for couples and honeymooners. The rooms are even split-level so you have the luxury of home comforts with a tastefully decorated living room area. Spend your days lounging in your abode and relaxing together on the sun terraces with loungers.

If you want to really find serenity, take to the lagoon-style swimming pool or head to the fabulous spa centre with tropical surroundings; it hosts its own impressive pool, and you can get a massage or try out a range of other treatments. There’s even a beauty salon in the resort if you want to get ready in style for a night of cocktails and Latin dancing in the town centre, just 5km away.

To explore Guardalavaca further, take to the shops, discover the many beaches lined with palm trees and snorkel with the beautiful marine life. With so much to do at the Paradisus Rio de Oro Resort & Spa, you’ll work up enough of an appetite to sample all of the resort’s eateries; the main buffet restaurant is excellent for variety, and international, Cuban, Japanese and Mediterranean dishes can all be found in themed à la carte restaurants.
