The price was fairly reasonable, especially if I hadn't been a solo traveler and could have split the cost. It was clean, my room had a little kitchenette, and the shower had amazing pressure. Everyone was friendly. They drove me to the bus stop when I left. My only dislike was because I was a solo traveler if was sometimes... More

Thank you for your recent review! It was a pleasure having you with us and we hope to see you again soon! Rest assured the waterfront walk to/from the hotel into town is quite safe. I believe you even got the opportunity to view the spectacular 'Blue Moon' over the Caribbean while here? Lucky you! Cheryl Roucher ~ Reservations Manager More

Paradise Hotel rescued me after a bad experience on the other side of the point. I checked in after experiencing 7 days with a whacko innkeeper into a small room (which was very comfortable) which they decided need painting so they upgraded me into their ocean view room with a veranda at no additional cost! The bar and dining area... More

We landed in Placencia after a 3 day sailing tour. We were a last-minute addition to the cruise -- no time to book any place to stay -- so we were winging it in Placencia. Luckily the crew recommended the Paradise Vacation Hotel. Aptly named! I only wish we'd had more time to stay. We were there for one night... More

I booked the Paradise Vacation Hotel because of the 4 1/2 star rating. How it got that, I will never know. The room was at least clean, but it was very small, cramped one very small window that you couldn't even look out of. We were right over the kitchen and could hear all the usual noise. I felt like...

Thank you for your recent review of our facility.

A Standard room is just that - your basic budget accommodation. Please note that our amenities offered... More

the staff are so lovely and friendly! Especially the girl in the restaurant. She was a sweetheart and so so helpful. The rooms are spotless and the shower is amazing. Exactly what I needed after 3 days of sailing. Good location I would highly recommend

I stayed at Paradise for 11 days and was able to see many local hotels and here is why you want to stay here- The location is a 5 minute walk or 2 minute bike ride (nice bikes with baskets included) to stores/restaurants/markets. It is more private, quiet and safe and yet still plenty of action to keep you busy.... More

I chose the Paradise Resort Hotel from a list of options offered by a big dive operation in Placencia. I looked at the Trip Advisor reviews and they were pretty positive, all in all.
