“The name is making it sound somewhat better than it really is.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

The name of the place suggests maybe a bit more upscale place than what it really is.
It's very basic, but the price/quality is good.
It's not a very expensive place.
We stayed only one night, and I haven't seen much service going on, so I can't really judge on the service in general.
The rooms are clean and spacious. We had our own bathroom, also very spacious. Airco plus fan in the room. No TV.
Our room had a very, VERY pungent smell of paint. It gave me a pounding headache overnight. Our friends in the other room didn't experience this, so this may have just been bad luck on our part (must admit that we didn't inform the reception about this, they may (or may not) have put us in a different room).

The restaurant is also basic, but good. Breakfast is not included in the room price (at least not for us), but prices in the restaurant are also very reasonable. Good variety of food, and -be it not spectacular- very edible.

Location is very good. Especially if you're a diver. Fairly direct access to most of the dive sites around Tulamben. USAT Liberty wreck is just down the beach, Coral Garden directly out front and some more dive sites on the other side, so very good.

Overall not at all a bad place to be staying.

This is not a new hotel but retains its old time charm, looking back to 1970s. The location though is superb and there is great snorkeling out front - weather conditions permitting. Admittedly, the rooms are not great and they are more likely to suit divers than holiday makers looking for something a bit more discerning. Even if you don't stay here, make sure to have a beer or two - and a bite - at the seafront restaurant.

Paradise is a small and basic hotel in a 5 star location. We have had many stays here over the past few years, and find it to be excellent value. It is the oldest hotel at Tulamben, and the rooms are a bit dated, but this is reflected in the modest price. All the rooms we've stayed in have had excellent and quiet air conditioning and plenty of very hot water. The hotel has lovely gardens and is looked after by very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms do not have a fridge or a TV.

Room rate includes a basic breakfast of fruit, either pancake or toast, and tea or coffee. A couple of eggs can be added for less than a dollar. All meals in the waterfront restaurant are good value and served by smiling staff. Wifi is free and available in the restaurant area.

Paradise is highly recommended for those happy with a basic room at a good price. Add the location, friendly staff and food food, and you won't be disappointed.

Bathroom had an infestation of insects but that got solved quickly with insect spray. Basic room with clean bed and towels. I like it that there's air con and ceiling fan in the room. Food is decent, and the location is just 3 steps from the shore.

We stayed here overnight as part of a 2 day dive package and found it fitted our needs more than adequately. It was clean and comfortable and inexpensive. I would think twice about an extended stay here but it was a few steps from the dive site, had all the facilities that we needed including a bar/restaurant overlooking the sea and was easy on the pocket.

Paradise...What a great little hotel/bungalow. I have stayed about 6 times over the last 10 years and have found it a very friendly, clean and safe place to stay . Lovely food from attentive staff.
A perfect central place to stay for the diverse diving in Tulamben. Simple and comfortable at a great price. I will definitely be staying there on my next visit to the "Island of Smiles".
