The beachfront thatched bungalows which comprise Paradisus Rio de Oro’s rooms and suites combine picture-book tropical paradise with supremely comfortable interiors, classically decorated with a splash of Caribbean colour.

Paradisus Rio de Oro offers a range of exquisite Cuban and international cuisine at its range of restaurants and bars, and is renowned – making the most of its coastal location – for the quality of its seafood, in particular its lobster, salmon and shrimp. El Bohio specialises in the distinctive flavours and aromas of Cuban Creole cuisine, Sakura is the place to go for exquisitely prepared Japanese dishes, and Santa Maria is a beach shack and grill offering the freshest fruits of the ocean. There are also plenty of spots to kick back with a mojito, such as El Salton or La Conga, where you can also enjoy a variety of live music.
