We came by the Paradise the last week of the season (the least week october). What can we say except the location is great and that Eleni and Pol were just the smartest, nicest and greatest host we could ever imagine. The villa itself is great, with everything you can dream of, even beverages were in the fridge... awesome! Everything...

The team at Paradise made our stay - a last minute break for a much need rest. We booked eight nights in a lovely quiet villa, with pretty gardens and private plunge pool.

Just spent 12 days at PIV with our teenage son. No need for a lengthy review... It's a fantastic place for relaxing in or exploring from and is made very special by the excellent, friendly and informal service provided by the whole team. We all had a great time - thanks for an excellent holiday!

Well run and charming people but this is not 5 * hotel in my experience and expectation. The rooms are very nice and clean inside but there is no character to the place, no view or outlook, situated in a street in a suburb, just concrete blocks. Food is nice and the people really care and are helpful which makes...
