I find some of the reviews so far very harsh and I have no idea why some people are so rude when there is no need. If you want a honest review with the good and the bad then this will be it. We have just returned from a Fri - Sun break (myself, hubby, 3 year old son and... More

This place is the WORST place I have ever stayed in - including youth hostels. Booked for 5 nights at a price of $240-$349 per night as this is portrayed as a "paradise" for kids and parents. I liken it to staying at a kids play centre 24/7. The hotel is extremely over crowded. The pool area is ridiculously noisy... More

Just came back after a weekend at this place, which actually does everything it says it does. But the real downfall is the food, and particularly the prices for the food. It is overpriced and there is much better food out on the beach or in the cafe's around. The shop prices are also very expensive. I'd rather just take... More

We are still holidaying at Paradise Resort with two more nights to go to complete our 6 night stay. The rooms are definitely outdated but have everything you need and the facilities for the kids are great! 10/10 for the 0-2yo kids club! General staff fantastic but found the duty manager less than helpful when I approached her with an... More

Great for kids of all ages. So be prepared: its noisy. While accommodation is dated, the kids don't notice. Food choices were varied, generous but expensive. We made the mistake of staying over for a youngster's birthday and invited the rest of the family to join us for a party lunch. The invited children were NOT allowed to swim in... More

We stayed here in winter 2013 while visiting the Theme Parks (Dreamworld is by far the best one!). We have three kids, 9, 6 & 3 at the time. The resort was great & the kids to this day still talk about going back. When we arrived for dinner the first night we had a magician walking around the tables... More

The best we have come across. We went on a Saturday. Took our 8 and 11 year old and they were in their swimmers from 10am right through to 9pm. They just loved the waterpark, kids club, free activities that were on including jelly eating contest. They took care of the adults aswel with having blind tasting cocktail while our... More

This was mine and my sons second stay at the resort in 6 months. Once again it was fantastic, pool and water park keep the kids busy all day. Staff are all friendly and can't do enough for you. The nightly dinner specials were great calzone Sundays are a must. The singer in the adult sitting area on a Monday... More
