I absolutely love this hotel, friendly and very helpful staff, elevator and luggage racks are were so convenient. Clean rooms, great maid service, Close to the beach, but peaceful, not so close to the crowds. I will be returning over and over again and I will be recommending the Paradise to all my friends and family.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The room was clean and has been updated nicely. We did not have an efficiency so were delighted with the size of the refrigerator and microwave. It was perfect for us. We also enjoyed the lovely clean pool and all of the tropical plants around it.

The good: We had a C-style room. The beds were comfortable, and the bedroom was located at the back of the room, so you were removed from the noise of other guests. The shower was nice, new clean showerhead, good water pressure, no problems with hot water. The maid service was awesome. The pool was clean and warm. The folks... More

We really enjoyed being here. The room was clean, cool, and nicely decorated. You could see the ocean from our balcony on the side (overlooking the pool) and the beach was steps away. Very friendly helpful managers and staff. The only reason we didn't give 5 stars is because the bathroom was showing a little wear but otherwise it was... More

Thank you Lisa for your kind comments.

The remedy of new drywall ceilings coupled with 100% occupancies unfortunately did not allow us to perform... More
