“nice appartment, close to lake, moderate surroundings”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

The appartment is nice and the personnel are very friendly. The strongest "+ for me is the walking distance to lake, beach and main street with nice restaurants. The surroundings (lots of other appartments and even a factory) and view from my balcony I found less attractive. The positive points of Riva and surroundings are for me:great beach and lake, lots of wind for windsurfing, canyoning, mountainbiking, Italian food and icecreams, nice weather.

Points to improve in my view:
(a) only 2 cooking pans can be heated simultaneously. I would expect that to be better for a 5 persons appartment.
(b) the wardrobe in the sleeping room had very few shelves to put clothes on. I could not unpack my bags.
(c) an appartment was being built very close to our appartment, giving some noise at 7 o'clock in the morning; luckily this new appartment is almost ready.
(d) there is no airco available; it can become a bit warm inside, but this was manageable
(e) I am not used to appartments, but I found it a bit noisy
(f) I find it always disappointing when I have to pay extra for the use of Wifi, although this is not a big deal. But why not make it free?

I booked this accommodation very early after doing a bit of research for the Riva area. However as my holiday drew nearer I checked out a few of the previous trip advisor reviews. I have to admit I was slightly concerned having read a couple of the reviews on here. I just want to say the negative reviews are ridiculous. Having just spent a week at the Residence Paradise in the top floor Suite I cannot fault it. The staff were friendly and helpful, the accommodation was clean and perfect for our holiday needs, the pool was brilliant and the location was near enough for a walk into Riva but far enough out if you wanted to be. We had wonderful weather which was the only down side - this being because the apartments do not have air conditioning so we were very hot at night but seriously if that is all i have to complain about then i can live with that! I would recommend this accommodation to anyone wanting a nice break to Riva where there are friendly staff to help you with anything you need or that will happily leave you to your own devices should that suit you as well. Well done Fam Azzolini maybe see you again next year!!

Room Tip: The Suite is at the top so is prone to be hot but the major plus is that it has two balconies, one b...

We are here every year for a yearly sailing event. Residence paradise has lovely apartments with kitchens (fully equiped with everything you need). The crew we know for quit a few years now is super!! It is so nice comming back here.
Tip 1, Book way on advance and try to get a groundfloor appartment.
Tip 2, Go with friends/more appartments and use the big BBQ and eat/cook outside (all available for free).

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!
