We stayed in a room with a panoramic sea view. The location is very good, as it is not far away from Portoferraio where the ferry comes in. The surroundings are simply breathtaking. It is walking-distance to several really nice beaches where you have plenty of opportunities to do some snorkelling. Some of the beaches are a bit difficult to... More

We have been fortunate to stay at Paradiso a number of times during summer (in June and July) in recent years and have always had a great family holiday - unbeatable views, friendly staff, freshly prepared food, fantastic beach (and pool) plus it's far enough away from the hustle and bustle to enjoy some real tranquility but not too far...

We stayed at the Hotel Paradiso in June, 2014 during our family trip to Italy. The hotel is exactly as promised on its website. The service is friendly, and the rooms are spotlessly clean and basic. We had three adjacent rooms, each with its own balcony. The view from the balconies and all around the hotel is, as my title... More

When we, my boyfriend and I, booked a 8 night stay at hotel Paradiso, we based it on good reviews from Tripadvisor. That is why we think it's important to write about our recent stay. Our expectations was this: A nice family driven hotel, with good service and good Italian food. When we arrived, we we greeted by a wonderful... More

We have stayed at the family-run Paradiso many times in the past 20 years, usually in June or July, and have always had a wonderful time. The views are exceptional and ever-changing throughout the day and night. The staff are exceptional too - nothing appears too much trouble and they contribute much to the enjoyment and relaxation of your holiday.... More

We had a relaxing 3 nights here. Helpful, friendly staff. Pool overlooks the bay & beautiful view. Smallish private sand & stone beach. Gorgeous water! Rooms set up on terraces and different levels give the complex some charm. Not for people with mobility issues as there is some climbing. Most units seem to have balconies with chairs & table. Separate... More

When we first got to the hotel, we were slightly concerned about it being in a secluded location (we were booked-in for 8 nights), but this turned out not to be a problem. We have rarely ever stayed at a hotel where the staff went so far out of their way to ensure that we had a good time. I... More

Was slightly shocked in the morning when I was told the price we had been quated the night before was per person and not per room as was clearly asked to the English owner. Then quite a patronizing conversation the next day from a very rude owner. Great view, average food, friendly resturant staff, basic rooms, patronizing owner and not... More

The person who was 'slightly shocked' the morning of 03/06/2013 certainly wasn't the person who had arrived the previous evening with his European girl friend asking for a room - it was the 'rude owner' who, together with her family, has passionately and professionally,helped in managing the hotel for almost 50 years without one single accusation of being 'patronizing'. This... More

If you are looking for a friendly, relaxing hotel, with amazing views then look no further than Hotel Paradiso. The hotel is situated in Viticcio which is a very peaceful area, but as it is only about 10 minutes drive from Portoferraio where there are many shops, bars and the all important ferries to the mainland it is very conveniently...
