On arrival in Grand Hotel Paradiso, the management offered us an upgrade without additional cost: I booked a Junior suite an got a real suite instead. Very nice of them. The hotel is not very close to the center of Catanzaro Lido, you need a car to get to the beach.Walking is not really an alternative because the roads to... More

They say in the room brochure that this is a 5 star hotel. Well it isn't, it is a 3 at most. A 5 star would provide a room service menu, not just say it offers it. There would be chairs on the balcony to enjoy the sea views, there wasn't. They would even provide a number in the room... More

Symbolically one of the 4 stars on the facade of this hotel is missing. Although the hotel seems to be relatively new, it is build completely without any charme or imagination! Everything is a little depressing to look at. The aircon in my room couldn't be switced off and the sink in the bathroom hadn't been cleaned since the previous... More

First I chose this hotel based upon the reviews. I wanted a nice hotel, with a spa and parking, since I would be driving. Parking is free and right in front of the hotel, which was convenient. Overall i had a very nice time at this hotel and the staff were very courteous and helpful. I will break my comments... More

Classy new hotel with modern and classy facilities. Friendly and helpful staff both in reception and the restaurant. The food was excellent - breakfast was a good selection and the dinner menu also varied. The pool was excellent. It was a nice touch for the owner to make a point of saying hello to all guests who were in the... More

We had an excellent time during our one week stay at Paradiso. The hotel itself was impeccable, the food delicious and the room couldn't be any nicer. The pool and the wellness center were really nice, and we really enjoyed the view from our window from which everyday we would see free roaming horses in the meadows overlooking the beach.... More

We stumbled on this hotel by chance and we thoroughly enjoyed our short stay there. It is rather new, family-owned, which made us feel at home immediately. Our room and bathroom were very clean and comfortable. We twice had a delicious, perfectly served evening meal in the restaurant, where we had great pleasure in admiring the lovely seaview. Breakfast was... More

This is a great 4 stars property which has many features of a deluxe hotel not easily found in Calabria. The rooms are large and very comfortable. The breakfast is adequate but needs improvement. The public spaces are large and very up to date and well furnished. The owners did a great job as this type of hotel is very... More

Dear Mr Mateo, I am really glad that you liked the rooms in my hotel. I would like to inform you that there is an indoor pool in the wellness center and it is a jacuzzi. To get into the wellness center reservation is needed. For the outdoor pool, instead, we usually close it at the end of September. I... More
