This was our first visit to Cuba and we were looking for 2 weeks of relaxation. We stayed in the Royal Service part of the resort which was fantastic in every way though we did try all the restaurants.

We stayed at Paradisus Rio de Oro in April. It was our second time at the hotel and really enjoyed ourselves.
