“Home Away From Home”
Reviewed 19 July 2017 for a stay in June 2015

Paradiso Romantico is a beautiful apartment that one cannot fall out of love from if you have booked there. From the main en-suite bedroom to the pool area with the beautiful sea-view. It is enhancing and my family loved it! I will gladly come back defiantly next year!

“Staff not fit to manage property”
Reviewed 25 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017
people found this review helpful

The booking was easily made and confirmed via Booking.com.
And thats were it ends.
It took has more than 75 min to check in via the estate security as the staff managing the property had not followed the proper procedure.
The apartment could be a gem, but it is very poorly managed, feels like someone has been there before feeling and the maintenance is shocking.
I left i list of items needing attention but I'm sure it will fall on deaf ears.
Look elsewhere !!

“What a shame the apartment did not match the location & setting.”
Reviewed 9 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016
people found this review helpful

A fantastic setting but the apartment is not quite as advertised. Gaining access was very frustrating & took over 45 mins to get into the estate. The security was useless. On arrival we found the apartment had not been cleaned after last check out. Beds unmade, dirty pots on stove (with food), dirty towels & bathrooms. Dishes in the sink and in general not fit for accommodation. Locating owners/agents was near impossible with no help available. We could not stay & had to find last minute alternate accommodation. We returned the next day & waited in car park for 45 minutes while cleaners finished off. Don't be fooled by the picture of the splash pool (as we were) as you are advised NOT to use the pool due to water restrictions. The pool was green. Far too many broken things in the condo to mention. We were assured that the agent would refund us the equivalent of our alternate accommodation which they did but not without demand and deductions. They deducted for our 2 hour late check out which we felt could have been overseen due to the inconvenience they caused. We are still waiting for our breakage deposit which has a R100 deduction for one wine glass. Their terms for this refund is within 30 days so hopefully we will receive that without demand.
