Good prices, good food (and their portions are huge!), clean nice comfortable rooms (spend the extra and get the upstairs room with the view, you'll thank me for it), kind courteous staff and no surprises on the check at the end of the stay.

Having lived in either Texas or Oklahoma most of my life, I'm a big fan of Tex-Mex food and flavors and finding this restaurant was a delight. When the enchilada sauce and refried beans smell just right as you walk through the door, you know you're in for a Tex-Mex treat and this restaurant at the Paradise Vacation Hotel didn't... More

The Owner Alan Stamm will always have that place in my heart as the person who saved my sons life. My wife was pregnant at the time and overdue but she needed R&R. The room (no. 7) was fresh and well kept. About 8AM, April 14th, 2014.... She went into labor and Mr. Alan gave of his company vehicle to... More

My wife and I frequent the coast and islands of the Caribbean, but somehow in our journeys we had missed this little jewel. We traveled with our adult son to attend a wedding and ended up having one of the best vacations ever. In the sleepy little town of Placencia we found the Paradise Hotel...a place that truly felt like... More

We stayed at the Paradise for just under a week over New Years Eve. We enjoyed the oceanview room on the top floor, it was clean quiet and had a very nice view. The restaurant food was always good and the Beliken always cold! We really enjoyed the pier, whether it was to watch boats go by, drop a fishing... More

We stayed at Paradise for a week during the month of February and really can't say enough about the hospitality, friendliness, cleanliness, and view we had from our room each and every day!

We really enjoyed our stay at Paradise. The staff is friendly, hard-working, and attentive and do their best to meet whatever needs you have. The servers were quick to learn our names and didn't forget them when we returned a week later. Food is tasty and plentiful and beers are cold. A very laid-back, comfortable atmosphere. We had room 12,... More

Placencia is an authentic Belizian treasure. Some dirt roads, great local food, beaches and also trendy spots. Paradise Vacation Hotel is a great spot to explore it all from. We had # 10 on the second floor. It has a spectacular view of the sea and sun rise! The hotel is modern and clean. The maids even make the towels... More
