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 are so pleased to hear that your group enjoyed themselves here at Paradise! A nicer setting could not have been chosen for the wedding and we felt privileged to be a part of it in our own little way! Please DO visit again soon! We look forward to having you back! 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 were in the deluxe ocean view suite (#12) and had every comfort of home and more! We woke up with a great view of the sea... More

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

We are frequent travelers to Placencia and this was our first stay at the Paradise. We thoroughly enjoyed our 10 day stay. After a long, hot day out and about, it was a treat to return to it's quiet and peaceful location. We were fortunate to have stayed in room 10, an oceanview room with a kitchenette and large balcony... More

We only stayed at the Paradise for two nights of our trek, but enjoyed the stay. This was mainly due to Lilly and Pedro! Two great folks who made us feel right at home in a very down to earth way. Lilly is the biggest sweetheart on earth! They made a great start to our trip. Our room was small,... More

I happened to come upon the recent negative reviews of this resort and can only grin at the ludicrous remarks the reviewers make. No vacation is perfect and sometimes things happen that none of us is happy about. How we handle these challenges as individuals says more than just taking displaced personal anger out by writing comments with no basis... More

After a long trip we were shown two rooms, one with no windows and one with a high window sealed with plastic, and no view. Fortunately there was a sea view room available which was spacious and clean, but thoroughly recommend you check before booking. We moved on to another hotel just out of town which was far better.

...but not all of the rooms at the Paradise Hotel have windows and in some of the rooms that do have windows, they have been completely sealed up with heavy duty plastic sheeting.
