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

Thank you for the positive review of our facility! Unfortunately, we cannot please every person that stays at our facility. However, it is on a positive note that 90 percent of the time we HAVE made our guest's stay very pleasurable and memorable!

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.

Please note Management Response for the review titled: "Even Prison Cells Have Windows"... My response to this particular submission will remain the same... However, I am confused as to why you would submit the review that you did when you, as the couple travelling with the above-mentioned review submitter, were the ones to receive the Oceanview Room upgrade? Again, my... More

...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. What is that all about and why isn't it mentioned on their site or when booking a room? Non refundable deposits when booking online should have raised... More

Very comfortable room overlooking the water. Off the beaten path but easily accessible to bars, restaurants and the beach. Wonderful staff to help book any excursions you might be interested in. Placencia was the perfect low-key location for an authentic Belize experience. We will definitely return and stay at the Paradise.

loved this hotel in Placencia! We were there with our friends on our double honeymoon and we just loved it there. The staff were so friendly and helpful. We even met the owners Allen and Deloris who always made sure we had everything we needed and even helped to try and arrange transportation back to Belize City. The restaurant had... More

The hotel is towards the southern end of the peninsula, away from the main bar/club party scene making it perfect for those who prefer peace and quiet at night. The hotel has a great set of amenities that complement the stay perfectly. The rooms are immaculately maintained and I slept very well each night. Though this hotel does not have... More

We bounced around Belize for a month. Spent time in many places, but enjoyed Placencia a little more than the rest. Rustic enough to be fun, modern enough to enjoy. The diving was phenomenal, and the Hotel has a nice dive shop. The guides took us out to the reserve where the critters were plentiful and the diving was pleasant.... More

This hotel was not as nice as it appears online. For one thing, the Queen sized bed was hard as a rock (a futon, I believe), and the bathroom was very tiny with a small sink (no space to put anything in the bathroom) and toilet space. No clean drinking water was available without paying for bottled water. The food... More

I land in Placencia during an unseasonal rainy period but the staff at Paradise made me feel at home with suggestions of things to do and see and always ready for conversation. Great bar, free kayaks and bikes to roam around and a dive shop too. There is a new bar at the end of the pier great for the... More
