Stayed at Hotel paradiso for four nights in late june of this summer. Was on the early leg of our honeymoon so we were looking for somewhere to chill out by the sea with nice food. It nearly ticked all the boxes.
Hotel is in a lovely spot, overlooking the sea, tucked into the trees. Rooms are basic but clean. Staff are fine. Theres a lovely bar there for drinks any time of day, with an outside area looking out onto the sea - beautiful views - just dont expect it to be rocking. Most nights we were there,everyone was gone to bed by 11, which was perfect for us, but mightnt suit everyone.
Beach is down a lot of steps but isnt a problem unless youre lazy to be honest. And its a decent quiet beach with beautiful clean water. There are other beaches not too far away - though you would probably need a car - in Scaglieri (theres a nicer beach just around the corner from scaglieri but i cant remember the name of it right now).
The main gripe with the hotel is the food. We are there the first night just for ease and it really was spectacularly awful. Tasteless, bland, terrible choices for a hotel right by the sea. We ate at a lovely restaurant just 2mins walk down the hill - its the only other place for miles - every other night and that was far far better. Dont eat at the hotel.
Overall, nice, basic, pleasant stay. Dont go here for the food or mad nightlife and Im not sure id stay here for more than four days. But for a quiet getaway its grand, relaxing, with lovely beaches and water and the nearby restaurant is really lovely.
