There are too many Cuba resorts to list, but some of them stand out above the rest. A resort differs from a typical hotel by usually offering more services, higher-quality accommodations, more expansive grounds, organized activities and several dining options. Most resorts are also on the beach, with views of the ocean.
Paradisus Rio de Oro
Not a place for the family, as the Paradisus Rio is for adults only. You can relax at the spa, go kayaking or dance at the disco. Located on Playa Esmeralda Beach, this is considered an ultra 5-star resort with lavish decor and service. There are 300 rooms and seven restaurants to serve you.
Gran Caribe Playa Blanca
You’ll be getting off the main island to Cayo Largo del Sur, a small island off the southern coast of Cuba. Miles of white sand beaches, and many places to go scuba diving will keep you occupied during your stay. It’s not as luxurious (or expensive) as some other resorts, but still offers many services with 306 rooms and 3 restaurants.
A 4-star resort on the fine beaches of Varadero. The resort complex is made up of low-bungalows for private accommodations, suitable for couples or families. You can dine at several international restaurants and bars, visit the spa or just spend your days on the beach. There are just 272 rooms, which makes this a bit smaller than many other Cuba resorts.
Sol Rio de Luna y Mares
The Sol Rio de Luna and Sol Rio de Mares are actually 2 resorts together on Playa Esmeralda Beach, near Holguin. The garden-filled grounds are lovely and many rooms have impressive views of the sea. Six restaurants for fine dining, a long list of daily activities and shows in the evening.
Sandals Royal Hicacos
Part of the famous Sandals chain of beach resorts, the Royal Hicacos lives up to the name. It’s located in the beach area of Varadero, on the northern coast of Cuba. There are more than 400 rooms, 3 swimming pools and 5 restaurants at the Royal Hicacos to make your stay enjoyable. I have more about Sandals Cuba if you are interested.
Melia Cayo Coco
Cayo Coco is an island off the north-central coast of Cuba, and home to many Cuba resorts including the Melia Cayo Coco. This is another resort just for grown-ups, so don’t plan on bringing the kids. Just 250 rooms, in small private bungalow buildings. You can enjoy the outdoors with white-sand beaches and a nearby coral reef.
