An intimate hotel on a great beach with wonderful staff and good food. The hotel is older for sure but is being upgraded. Know the room your booking so your not disappointed with one that hasn’t been redone if that’s important to you. The staff was wonderful, the food was pretty good.

An intimate hotel on a great beach with wonderful staff and good food. The hotel is older for sure but is being upgraded. Know the room your booking so your not disappointed with one that hasn’t been redone if that’s important to you. The staff was wonderful, the food was pretty good. Not amazing but our group of 7 always found something they loved. There was a lot of variety. Fresh green salads, fruits multiple protein choices and multiple veggie choices and cooked really well. The pool was amazing and just proximity to the beach was what we loved. Read less

It’s in set in a beautiful location. The staff are friendly and relaxed, the food simple but delicious, the rooms are adequate and comfortable, the views are fantastic. We spoke to many other guests and we all agreed it’s very difficult to explain specifically why this hotel is much greater than the sum of its parts, brilliant place , give it a go you won’t be disappointed Read less

We had an amazing time. All the reviews were spot on. The resort is stunning. We needed a place to relax and do nothing (in a good way) and this was the place. I have never seen my husband so relaxed and calm. It was exactly what we needed. The food was ok. We never went hungry but I wish there was more variety at dinner. Eden beach is great. It… Read more

It was our first time at a clothing optional beach and it was exhilarating. The staff is attentive and very friendly, as well as the management. We will definitely be coming back. Read less

We enjoyed our stay in a beach bungalow, room was spotlessly clean and location was superb. Beaches are outstanding and staff are generally really great. Our big problem was our neighbors, in retrospect we should have asked to be moved, unfortunately the hotel is not responsible for the guests behavior. They smoked constantly and not just nicotine, we believe they were being supplied 'wacky backy' and more by one of the contract staff. Can I suggest an umbrella is added to the room and a front door mat to try and prevent so much sand being dragged into the room...a nightmare for the cleaning staff. Taxis are ridiculously expensive but your only choice, confirm the price before starting the journey. It is a lovely place to stay, just set your expectations for a rustic stay Read less

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Paradise at this resort. The staff and the resort were beyond our expectations. It is not a party place but for quiet, relaxing, romantic getaways it could not be better.
