Okay, so we know what you're thinking, these people are probably just complainers who write bad reviews. We thought the same thing. This hotel IS worth the money, but it depends on what you pay. HUGE HINTER: DO NOT BOOK FOR AN ACONNOMY/ATTIC ROOM. 4TH FLOOR. Its made out to be a nice room for smaller groups and such. Heres... More

We just returned from this resort on December 1st, 2006. I have 3 children, ages 2, 7 and 9 so we also brought my mother-in-law. We paid very little for this trip, so I have to say we got what we paid for. The room was very run down, had no tv remot and cold water in the shower, but... More

My girlfriend and I went to Paradise Beach Club & Casino Nov. 19-26, 2006. We definitely enjoyed ourselves to the fullest. We happened to get +30 degree weather everyday which allowed us both to return home with a golden brown tan :) We were very impressed with the food served at both the buffet and the a la carte dinners....

Wew stayed at Paradise Beach Club November 2005 and had such a good time that we are going back again on 18th November this time for two weeks. The hotel is well maintained and although the rooms are a little dated they are clean and tidy and do the job of providing a base. The food had plenty of selection... More

Well... We have just returned from a fortnight at this hotel and were full of apprehension having read the reviews. I must admit that the four of us had a FANTASTIC time!! One slight snag was the rooms - we did have to change having been given musty, damp rooms at first - but the reception staff were most accomodating... More
