“Too busy at weekends with locals ”
Too noisy for us but we had our own private beach in Royal Service. On our first visit here it was very quiet in June
“Nice beach ”
If you want to do some souvenir shopping this is the place. For $5.00 a person you take the double decker bus from Hotel.
“liked it ”
This beach is part of Rio de Oro Resort...I worked there as a model back in 2007 and I got to see this beach...It is clear and so blue..the sand white..Kind of the Sandals magazines's pictures.
“Great snorkling ”
This beach has some nice sand to stroll on. Getting into the water was rocky so water shoes are needed. Beach wasn't too busy so we didn't feel crowded at all unlike some other Cuban beaches.
“Wonderful Snorkeling ”
If you like to snorkel stay at one of the Melias on this beach and you will have a wonderful time!! We have stayed at the resort on this beach many times and each time the fish are always around. It is like swimming in an aquarium. Remember to bring bread in a plastic bag and your underwater camera.
“beach at Paradisus ”
beautiful beach, not crowded while we were there and with a nice coral cliff at either end. fine white sand and warm water.
“I love Paradisus rio de Oro !! The Ultimate Best !! ”
I loved everything about this resort. The cleanliness, the weather, the staff, the best food ever, the surroundings. Paradise !!
“Fantastic beach ”
Soft, white coral sand, clear sea, plenty of shade or sun, whichever you want, good snorkelling - what could be better? The beach is an adequate size for both the complexes that use it so I doubt it ever gets really crowded but in the off season (when we were there) it seemed almost deserted. If you're a reasonably confident... More
Walking along quiet beach listening to the sea. Swimming in the beautiful blue sea then walking back to the hotel for acool cocktail.
“You want paradise? You got it! ”
white sand, palms, emerald green water, sun and my husband. On the Luna side there is good snorkelling, and you can do allsorts of water sports there. We will be back next winter
