Paradisus Rio De Oro vs. Paradisus Princesa del Mar

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies!

 

I am newly engaged (Feb 12th) and have decided on a destination wedding for May 2011. Taking into consideration the budget of our guests we have decided Cuba would be our best bet to ensure the most amount of ppl can come. With that being said, I think we have narrowed it down to Paradisus Rio De Oro and Paradisus Princesa del Mar.

 

If any of you can give an opinions/advice on what resort might be better I'm all ears. We do not have any young children attending so that is why we decided to go with an adults only resort.

 

I look forward to hearing from you.

 

Congrats to all the fellow brides-to-be!! :)

Aren't they in different Provinces?

Princesa is in Varadero and De Oro is in Holguin.

I've been to Princesa a few times and it was an excellent resort(...Cuban resort).

yes, they are in different parts. I was just curious as to what people's thoughts were of the actual grounds of these 2 places.

I'm sure both places are beautiful.

Can't comment on the Princesa del Mar and I think you'll struggle to find many people who have been to both.

What I can say is that you won't be disappointed with the Paradisus Rio de Oro. It's a beautiful resort, and I'm sure the same could probably be said for the Princesa; we're going to the Rio de Oro for our third time this year and have chosen it as our wedding venue.

Oh really? When are you getting married?

We are looking to do it May 2011. My fiance is actually from England and we will be inviting some guests from there so hopefully they will be able to find decent packages.

I am a little worried about the food, but most reviews seem pretty positive. How is the beach??

Beach is great and food is great. We're getting married this May (7 weeks to go!).

I have been to a wedding at paradisus Rio del Oro, it was great. Get them to do a beach wedding on the patio they have, it's by far the best location for a romantic dinner and AMAZING for pictures. I'm getting married at the Princesa del Mar only because I want to have an engagement shoot in Havana and Holguin is to far for my liking.

Honestly, they are ALL the same. No matter what resort you  will chose. Sand, water and a portable gazebo or a table.

cheers

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
