Visited 27th Feb- 13th March. All good on arrival, as repeat customers we had been given the rooms we requested. Food was not as good as on previous visit. All the bar and waiting staff were absolute diamonds. Entertainment was mediocre (too much dancing). Whilst waiting for

I was excited to go to this resort after reading such great reviews, however kept telling myself it could be to good to be true. It sure was. Don't get me wrong, this is a very nice resort. It just didn't have the Cuban feel like resorts do in Varadero. Check in was quick and

Cayo Coco was hit very hard by Hurricane Irma in 2017. However, the Cuban people are very resilient, proud, and resourceful. The vegetation was levelled on the islands, but it is quickly growing back. The resort itself is in great condition, open fully, with their spectacular

This will be a short review. Been to Cuba many, many times, and have experienced good and bad and I would say this resort is average. I know lots of people love it, I also see horrible reviews. I would say don’t believe the horrible reviews, it’s fine but...there are some

Are you able to book priority?Seems to be some confusion. Thanks
I don’t drink juice, so I didn’t really pay attention. I did see there were some juices available in glass pitchers, they looked more like a fruit drink, than a juice but I can’t say for sure. There was a girl making smoothies with fresh fruit though. The fruit selection wasn’t big, usually pineapple, papaya, guava, watermelon, and plantains. Sometimes there was cantaloupe, but it wasn’t great. The pineapple was sometimes good, sometimes unripe. The papaya was really good. Fruit is my favorite thing so I’m kind of picky!

British pounds should be acceptable. We took Canadian dollars and the exchange was the same as purchasing US dollars. They don’t like taking US currency at all. Hope this helps.

Thank you for you reply 😃 Seems like the Hotel has done away offering Priority Club. My friend from UK confirmed any pre bookings under old Pestana - Hotel Playa Paraiso honoured the Priority Club. It seems like you can’t even purchase when you arrive at Hotel. Sad, really going to miss it....enjoyed the Prioity Section and service on the beach.

"The resort has most of the rooms in the centre of everything. There are a few requiring slightly more walking."
"section 6 was close to everything"
"We were happy with block 5 which had a sea view, but I would think that all the blocks are good."
"certain buildings ar down an incline ask when booking if this is an issue for older travellers or"
"for quietness, the rear of block 8 or 9 seems to be the best choice"
