Quite simply, paradise resort is wonderful. Yes, it is old and a bit dated, but my son didn't care one bit! Yes, we had a very simple room, but it was fine for a family of three. I liked the little touches. For example, they have really thought about what a family needs. No mini bar, so a fridge available... More

Room was old and tire, cramped and not very functional. Kids loved the facilities especially the ice skating rink and Splashzone. Had the feel of parents 'dumping kids' pool side to access the bar and drink copious amounts of alcohol. As I supervised my own children (being in the pool with them) I observed many children apparently unsupervised, some as... More

Good family accommodation. Although becoming dated and in need of a refurb and thorough clean. Slightly overpriced for what you get but the pool makes up for that even though that can be way overcrowded at times too. Kids had a great time and we will be back.

My husband, 6yo, 4yo and I are currently staying here, 3rd night of a 5 night stay. We were lucky enough to get the deal that gave us $400 resort credit which has been very handy. We were a little hesitant about coming because some of the reviews haven't been complementary. ..but i can't see where the problem is! Although... More

We had a 3 night stay at Paradise Resort with 3 kids aged 2, 4 and 9. The resort had an amplitude of things to keep the kids entertained from Waterslides to Ice skating rink and a kids club that allowed my wife and I to get out for a while and have some time alone and relax. Breakfast and... More

We stayed at Zagume's Paradise Resort for 5 nights in August, 2014 - my husband and 20 month old son. We stayed here on a whim, booking it after seeing a special using the Entertainment Book. It's not often that you stay somewhere and you can say that you don't notice your toddler's sometimes annoying / loud / active behavior.... More

Firstly if you don't have kids I would advise you stay far away. Everyone was running around with hectic crazed looks on their faces (this includes staff children and parents). Have to pay for secure parking and to use some of the facilities. All felt cramped and maze like. Kids didn't like the childcare that was included. I would prefer... More

We are very disappointed with staying here. The reception ladies are not welcoming never mind helpful. Things like Good morning or hello none existent here. The food is not fresh. We bought sushi which said that was made freshly, but it was hard and dry. So were the sandwiches. Room was not vacuumed properly and there was rubbish under the... More

When we got there my husband and I looked at each other and said "how our holidays have changed". Yes it was noisy but come on it's a family resort we expected some noise. Kids are noisy and loud. We found the room fine (stayed in the cheapest and smallest one which had us 3 but could have had 4... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the cheapest room and found it more than adequate. It was spacious and clean. It appeared to have had a recent cosmetic makeover. Although the workmanship was far from perfect it certainly didn't detract from the comfort of the room. Before booking I read the reviews about the noise levels from the pool and... More
