“Excellent new hotel with great staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Classy new hotel with modern and classy facilities. Friendly and helpful staff both in reception and the restaurant. The food was excellent - breakfast was a good selection and the dinner menu also varied.
The pool was excellent.
It was a nice touch for the owner to make a point of saying hello to all guests who were in the restaurant when he was.
This hotel is family friendly and we would recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Get a sea view with balcony room - very good

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

We had an excellent time during our one week stay at Paradiso. The hotel itself was impeccable, the food delicious and the room couldn't be any nicer. The pool and the wellness center were really nice, and we really enjoyed the view from our window from which everyday we would see free roaming horses in the meadows overlooking the beach. But the best part of all was the staff. The owner was such a kind man and made us feel right at home. He was more than happy to suggest places to go and he even took the trouble to drive us here and there. We have never experienced such hospitality and we hope to return in the near future.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the beach are the nicest

Stayed in early June Arrived late on a Saturday night (nearly midnight). Immediately made to feel very welcome by reception,which was manned. Had a room with a sea view which was delightful and roomy and very clean.Breakfast was god by most standards and nothing was too much trouble. Pool was just being opened as it was early June and the recent bad weather has prevented it being opened earlier. Dinner was great value,very good food and served by very friendly staff. The owner made himself known and proved to be every bit a great host. Highly recommended and will defiantly stay again.

We stumbled on this hotel by chance and we thoroughly enjoyed our short stay there. It is rather new, family-owned, which made us feel at home immediately. Our room and bathroom were very clean and comfortable. We twice had a delicious, perfectly served evening meal in the restaurant, where we had great pleasure in admiring the lovely seaview. Breakfast was adequate, good for Italian standards.

This is a great 4 stars property which has many features of a deluxe hotel not easily found in Calabria. The rooms are large and very comfortable. The breakfast is adequate but needs improvement. The public spaces are large and very up to date and well furnished. The owners did a great job as this type of hotel is very much needed in the area. Great place to use as a base for a fly & drive program. The outside pool is great and in late September had a great fish dinner by the pool.

Dear Mr Mateo,
I am really glad that you liked the rooms in my hotel. I would like to inform you that there is an indoor pool in the wellness center and it is a jacuzzi. To get into the wellness center reservation is needed.
For the outdoor pool, instead, we usually close it at the end of September.
I hope to see you again in Grand Hotel Paradiso!
Best regards.

Hotel is convenient and away from hustle bustle of town tho would need a vehicle most likely.....free parking is definitely an added bonus in Italy!

Breakfast very average and doesn't rate at all.

Lovely rooms and terraces with sea view room.

Service only reason that it doesn't get 5 stars......trouble with it having booking checking in and just seemed a bother for them.
