Good location with decent beach, small swimming pool though, rooms were spacious but beds were old and tired, some minor irritation with defective socket that blew the kettle but that got sorted out eventually. Good sea view from room, generally a decent place to stay if not for the beds keeping me from a good night's rest.

Stayed in this hotel a long time ago and can see that it has gone through refurbishment. Room is big but can be cleaner and the seaview is fantastic. We stayed for 4D3N and enjoyed the beach. Hardly anybody at the beach eventhough it is of peak season. Would be nice if the massage shack is operational. Breakfast was alright,... More

We love Rainbow Paradise Hotel. Our room (2011) was spacious and we had a great view of the beach. The breakfast buffet was generous though we practically had the same menu for the five days we stayed in the hotel. The front desk staff was friendly and so were the staff of Breeze Cafe. The price is just right; in... More

Check in time is very slow, we waited almost 45 mins.! Then the staff told us that there is no available double bed and just the twin bed which they just joined together. But the room is okay as well as the breakfast. For electricity socket, bring an adaptor if you need two hook socket because all are 3 hooked.

We had a wonderful time here. Although large, the hotel maintains a friendly personal service that makes one feel welcome. The hotel is situated on a surprisingly quiet and pleasant beach that offers panoramic views, a refreshing sea breeze and the opportunity for a peaceful sunbathe on the numerous freely provided sunbeds. Pleasant in itself, the location of the hotel... More
