We stayed here as it offered a lot for the kids! Rooms need updating however they were still clean and tidy. Our kids wanted to stay by the pool all day and enjoyed the free kids club once a day. The hotel offered great activities near the pool area every day to keep you busy and the food was great...

I have been in travel for 25 years. We are on holiday in Australia from South Africa. I found this resort to be absolutely terrible. The check-in staff were rude, we booked interleding rooms, the one room was ready upon the check-in the other one was not, I was told to store our bags until the the other rooms were...

There is nothing worse than something you have been eagerly anticipating being marred! Paradise Resort is a great family destination, with lots to do with your children. Most of the staff you encounter are happy, smiling, friendly and children focused. The pools and playgrounds are also cleaned and tidied daily. However, there are downsides, such as, the rooms are aged...

This was a great place for the kids. Location is pretty good, being a short walk from the beach & Caville Avenue. Rooms are pretty basic, but the selection of things to do for kids is great & more than makes up for that. If you are going for a relaxing couples weekend thin isn't the place, but if you...

I planned this overnight stay months in advance. I even went to the resort for them to show me the room types. When we got to our room we were given one of the old style rooms on the road side. Very very old style. Not worth the money spent. The worst part of the whole stay was the keys...

Hi LOUISE C, Thank you for taking the time to review our resort based on your recent stay with us. It is disappointing to hear that the room type you booked was not to your standards nor in the area of the resort you were hoping for. We have many different room types and styles located all around our resort...

Stayed at this great resort last week. So many activities and things to do for all ages. We took our 1 &1/2 year old and she loved getting around the toddler water park and going on the playgrounds. The food i think is reasonably priced considering you don't have to leave the park. Can't wait to bring little miss back...

Just got back from paradise resort. We decided to surprise the kids with a holiday that was 'just for them' and I have to say, it was the holiday of a lifetime for them and a HUGE mum and dad win! We booked two interconnecting standard room and were upgraded to two interconnecting superior rooms. I highly recommend this option...

Paradise Resort is a nice big open common area and several pools and plenty of places for the kids to play. It really is centralised around the kids. If anything I just say that the rooms are generally just like any other motel room, but that's really not a complaint more an observation. Staff are really helpful, difference between pool...

It was my worst hotel I have stayed in Australia ever, the feeling was even worse than staying in a motel. Couple of points I was attracted by: 1- water park, sounds lots of fun for my little boy. It was ok, but if you decide to go to theme parks, you don't need to stay here at all. As...
