Good location and facilities. Free hour of WiFi was cool. They arranged direct shuttle and bus pickup for us at no charge, very helpful staff! Also held our bags free of charge while we kayaked in Abel Tasman. Good on-site security measures like locks on all gates after hours. Free breakfast was a bit of a joke, they ran out of milk super early every day and there was no staff around that early to bring more so cereal was a loss.
We should've taken our Lonely Planet seriously when it called Paradiso "club med for the impoverished." Pretty crazy party scene - it would have been fun for us 10 years ago. 18-22 year olds partying loudly by the pool at all hours - we were there 3 nights in January and it was like that every night.
It wasn't terrible, but I wouldn't stay there again.
