Paradisus Rio De Oro Resort & Spa

A peaceful adults-only resort offering superior service set on stunning Esmeralda beach.

Tucked away in Bahía de Naranjo Natural Park and voted one of the Caribbean’s best all-inclusive resorts, this is the ideal spot to reconnect with your loved one. The YHI Spa has an extensive menu of relaxing and refreshing treatments and a gentle waterfall splashes into the spa’s own saltwater lagoon-style swimming pool.

There’s a choice of seven restaurants (plus one Royal Service restaurant) serving a wide variety of cuisine from Mediterranean to Japanese. Alongside the international buffet La Ceiba, there are beach and poolside eateries that open during the day. Be sure to reserve a table at one of the speciality à la carte restaurants to enjoy gourmet dishes at dinner.

All of the junior suites and suites are spacious and light with colourful décor and feature all the modern amenities you would expect. Paradisus Junior Suites have views of the tropical gardens while the ground floor Luxury Junior Suites, which have either garden or sea views, are slightly more spacious and feature an outdoor shower and hammock. For exclusive extras such as butler service and access to an exclusive beach bar choose a Junior Suite Royal Service which have a garden view, or for a supplement, an ocean view.
