“wonderful apartments, great location and great hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2012

Were there for european spring event yngling in may 2012 and had a beautiful apartment, very clean!! The harbour was just a 10 minute walk and the owner even provided bicycles for free. The residence had a swimmingpool and it was on short distance of some nice restaurants and a superb gelateria! where they also served lovely cappuchino's. We had a great week and hope to come back with a next event with all our yngling friends.
Thank you again for your hospitality Fam Azzolini! maybe until next year!

For money paid you can get other comparable accommodation around the lake, esp. before the main season starts. Paradise Residence is a typical apartment accommodation, located among the other apartment houses - about 1km far from the historic city center and 500m from the beach. This is not exceptional accommodation in the lake area - final price of accommodation would be greatly increased on site - in addition to accommodation price you pay extra on site for - bed linen, final cleaning, wifi (which just does not work), heating (if not paid, does not work and it's cold).
Equipment and furniture of rooms are simple, the rooms are spacious and very clean. "Heated" pool in the spring is cold - heating depends on the weather (solar collectors) so the pool could be used only in summer.
Residence "accepts" credit cards payments (listed on the website of the residence), but be prepared that staff strongly prefers payment in cash, which we did not like.
Staff was friendly and helpful. We stayed in tipo C for 6 people, but we were only 4 people and it was absolutely enough.

For the third year I return this spring to stay in Residence Paradise and to sail on the beautiful Garda Lake. From the first day on we were pleasantly surprised by the warm welcome and friendly service of Gianfranco, who makes you feel right at home. The rooms are well kept and all have a living room, kitchen, balcony and everything thing else you need. Outside in the garden we've had some nice bbq's. The pool isn't very big but then again, who wants to swim in a pool when you are next to a crystal clear lake?

The location was perfect, because the Garda Lake is just across the road, and both Riva and Torbole are easy to reach by foot. If you don't want to walk Gianfranco also provides bikes!

All in all I would say that for the money you pay you get a very complete holiday, and great tourist information at the reception!


I write this review because I was surprised by some other comments. You should not expect a resort for this price. In my opinion you get great value for money and the Azzolini family works hard to give you a good stay.

Enjoy!

I spent one week with my wife and my parents one week in Riva del Garda in residence Paradise and I have to say, wonderful week! The accommodation was very nice, next to residence is the swimming pool and centre of the town is about 400 m. Staff of the residence Paradise was kind and willing. Thank you very much for pleasant holiday and I am looking forward to next times, Tomas!

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor have the doorway directly to garden.

We saw the photos of this place and thought it looked very nice. When we arrived for our 10 night stay we were horrified to find that the 2 bedroom apartment was tiny and freezing cold with a view of another building and 1 metre of lawn outside the room. THe heating did not work and the double bed was just two single beds put together. There were no double blankets and we froze all night. The bunk bed did not have a safety barrier so one of our children had to sleep on the sofa. There was room only for the bed in the master bedroom and no cupboard space or space for our suitcases. The building itself is on a main road opposite a factory with no nice outlook.
We disliked this place so much that we left and forfeited the money it cost to stay there as we thought it would ruin our holiday to stay there for 10 days.
The manager told us he would refund us if they rented the room to someone else and that he would phone us if someone else stayed there. We checked the room during that week and found someone staying there but we did not get any phonecalls. We went back to the hotel and they refused to give us any refund for the 4 nights that someone else stayed in our room. I asked to speak to the owner and the person in reception refused to let us speak to her. I made a complaint to the Tourism Office about this place. The rooms are NOTHING like the ones pictured on the internet. This place is not nearly as good as a youth hostel. If you stay there it will spoil your holiday so quite simply - DO NOT STAY THERE.

It was my first time in Riva, and the location was perfect. Residence Paradise is close to the beach, just a 10 minute walk and the employees are very friendly. Especially our hostess who made sure we had everything we needed. The rooms were clean and had all the means we needed to cook. So do not bring any pans with you or anything else regarding cooking as it is available in the appartement. I have been to many countries, but i surely will visit Riva again staying at Residence Paradise. Good memories!
