We stayed in Parco Paradiso 2 week-end nights. Everything was impeccable - we were picked up (and dropped off) at the railway station, received a room upgrade to a suite with a very nice view over the bay of Lugano, nice, sober, modern room fittings & bathroom, comfortable beds. The sauna area is small but very nice (could close later than 9:00 PM though...). The Cuban bar is fantastic - beautiful view, it's a smoking bar (getting very rare in Switzerland nowadays!) with good cocktails and very nice décor. The staff at the bar are very attentive. Buffet breakfast is excellent. The only less-than-positive point concerns the restaurant La Favola (the "other restaurant" Japanese grill seems excellent but is very expensive. Menu-only and the cheapest menu is CHF 82, the most expensive CHF 420... a bit exaggerated perhaps). Although the food at La Favola was good (but not as fabulous as it sounds on the menu), one side-order was forgotten, we were not advised that desserts were unavailable because the kitchen closed. Also, the service was not friendly and actually rude (you do not roll your eyes and make remarks if someone asks for mayonnaise on their potatoes). I would say that unless you have a lot of cash to drop on some fancy Japanese food, you can eat much better local food in a Grotto in the city. Besides this aspect, our stay was really very pleasant and relaxing, and we would definitely return and recommend this hotel to other travellers.
