We spent two weeks at this fantastic resort and had the best holiday ever. The Staff welcomed us like we were family and nothing was too much trouble, the food was fantastic and as I am a picky eater that is saying something. There was a very relaxed atmosphere you could do as much or as little as you wanted....

How nice to hear from you! It is not often that visitors stay as long as you two, nearly two weeks, giving you the opportunity to experience all that Popa Paradise has to offer... much more than the tours and entertainment that can be experienced in just a few days.

We arrived at the end of the season and could not have asked for a better time. The staff was so awesome and accommodating.
