Paradisius Princesa del Mar

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine recommended this resort to me, I am just in the initial stages of planning looking for that great resort to have my wedding. Anyone already had a wedding or going to have a wedding here in the future that they could share their wisdom with me? I went to their website and it doesn't have enough pictures for weddings, has anyone gone with this line of hotels, the SolMelia? I'm looking to most likely be in Cuba, but also want to keep the cost fair to my guests as they will be coming out of Halifax, Toronto and Calgary.

I don't have any experience with that once, but a travel agent told me that Sol Melia is very good for weddings. I know on this forum here a lot of brides are getting married at a Melia resort.

We are getting married at the Melia Varadero, which is in the same line as the Paradisus resorts. Check out this website:


Wedding Cuba Channel. Wedding & Honeymoon at Sol Melia Cuba Hotels


They have great wedding packages, and if you have over 17 guests most of it is free. I was interested in this resort too, but we thought at the time that some guests would be bringing their kids, and its an 18+ resort... looks beautiful though... good luck!

I was there 3 years ago and it is a BEAUTIFUL resort. Like someone mentioned above, the further down you go, the nicer the resorts. When we stayed there, the locals said it was the nicest on the strip.


Be mindful that it is an adults only resort.




I found this on the sunwing website:

we spent our honeymoon week at that resort. Its a gorgeous resort and the food is amazing. We did see a wedding going on the week we were there, they were taking pictures around the pool with the bridges. I'm sure they came out beautifully.

The only drawbacks for that resort is that its very far from the night life, you would have to take a cab in and that its mostly couples there. If there are a lot of 20 yr olds in your group they won't find it much fun there. Any singles we met the week we were there were unhappy at the lack of "something to do".


But otherwise...highly recommend it!!

I've stayed here, and it is a beautiful 5-star resort. The food is amazing... (I've stayed at other resorts in Cuba, and the food wasn't all that great). I also loved the fact that it was an adults-only resort. I would definitely reccomend this place!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
