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. The resort is small, right on the water, and has a wonderful staff and owners. The people are genuine, friendly and want you to have a... More

When checking in to the Paradise Resort you are immediately and pleasantly enthused by the friendly, attentive and genuine attitude driven by their attention to you as someone special. They go out of their way to help you with information, directions and suggestions to ensure you have a great time. I would highly recommend it and would not stay anywhere... More

We stayed here for 3 nights to do some land based day trips. It is at the very end of Placencia which makes it a little difficult to find the first time as it is not visible from the road and is located behind a couple of other buildings. Which also means you have to park a half a block... More

Kevin - Thank you for your recent review. Customer satisfaction is our #1 priority and it seems we may have fallen a bit short in that category during your stay with us. I would like to touch on a few points that you mentioned: We are a hotel rather than a 5-star resort. Most beachfront facilities here in Placencia (other... More

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

My wife and I frequent the coast and islands of the Caribbean, but somehow in our journeys we had missed this little jewel.

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.
