Great prices (lunch for four adults -- including four cervezas) was $30 with tip!! Good food. My friend enjoyed his Corvina which looked delicious. He said there was one tiny... More

We were heading up the mountain road for a weekend in El Valle de Anton. Although we were hungry, our intention was to wait until our arrival in El Valle to eat. However, we passed by this appealing-looking restaurant and something told me to turn around and go there, so we did. It turns out that the gamble paid off.... More

We have stayed there a number of times and always received excellent service from the host Rose who does everything to ensure her guests are comfortable. The decor is beautiful and relaxing and this gem is set off the road towards El Valle, but close to the beaches. Food is good, drinks are tasty, and the company even better! A... More

Stopped by on the last Sunday of February for lunch. Service was slow, but the staff was helpful and nice. The food was good and reasonably priced. The owner stopped by our table and explained the reason for the delay of our order. We weren't in a big rush so it wasn't a problem.

I visited and was beyond impressed. The cabins are fresh and clean, well designed and surrounded by beautifully manicured, lush grounds and a fantastic pool! The restaurant/bar food was both delicious and plentiful along with a large variety of ice cold premium beverages! Rose the owner is vibrant and welcoming as are the staff. A must stay when you come... More

We love Paraiso, a real sense of community can be found here. Great place not only for a meal or drinks, but to meet up with friends, old or new. Love Rose, Pete and don't forget Gabby, great food, music and good times.

We love spending time at Paraiso's. Rose, the owner is fantastic. We've stayed at the cabins, had a great time. Food is always very good with consistently good service. Great pancakes for breakfast.

This is a great clean restaurant on the way to El Valle. Food is excellent and the owners Pete and Rosa are always there to give you the best experience possible. We also stayed at one of their cabanas. The location minutes from the beach and el Valle made it a great choice for us. Cooler and quieter than the... More
