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.

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

vittima, Proprietario at Hotel Paradiso, responded to this review

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...

Small private beach, and other beaches near by. Super friendly staff - very relaxed and personal. Helpfull with all your needs. Traditional decent and good food,... More

Stayed in June for 6 days while travelling through Tuscany. We bought B&B option only. Arrived after 9pm and have been told as restaurant is kept open just for us as we must be hungry after long trip which was very nice.

My husband, my three adolescent children, and I spend several days at Paradiso on our month long travels through Italy this summer. It was wonderful, the staff were exceptionally helpful. We had not brought any snorkeling gear with us and the owner brought some of their own gear for all of us to use. We had some great meals at... More

If you want a modest, friendly resort hotel this is great place at a fair price. If you want to be pampered with luxuries, large rooms, the best beaches, the finest foods, and the softest beds, stay elsewhere. There are many great features about this hotel including free hikes and sea kayak tours, decks with great views and beach access.... More
