we stayed at Club Hotel Villa Paradiso at the end of July for one week with our two university aged children and one teenager and booked it because it would allow those who wanted to explore the delights of Umbria and Tuscany to do so, but also combine this with an opportunity to unwind by the pool. How wrong we were!!!!!!!!!
The hotel ( is it a hotel, club or villa???) is positioned in a residential area. The accomodation is 3 star rather than the 4 star it claims. The rooms are clean but basic. To use the pool you have to wear a plastic swimming hat ( which you buy from the hotel)..... The pool is smaller than the pics suggest with a capacity for about 80 people. Neither the pool nor the area around it are large enough for the hundreds ( 350 at a guess) of guests staying at the hotel. The 'animators" run daytime clubs for children and teenagers in the pool all day long. Hence for much of the day, it is booked by the 'animators' and out of bounds. We were only able to use it before 10 a.m., from 12.30-1.30 or after 5.30pm and then having to stand by the pool or sit on the ground because of the lack of sun beds this was not is not our idea of a holiday. Surely the services should be available to all the guests. As the parents of 3 young adults we are used to loud music but at Club Paradiso pop music was blaring out over the pool all day long from giant speakers which made it impossible to hold any kind of a conversation ( sign language necessary to ask my husband if he would like a drink!) , read a book or relax ( even if you were lucky enough to find somewhere by the pool to sit). More like a theme park! Unable to find another hotel to accomodate our family at that time of year we eventually made the decision to use the hotel to sleep and eat and spent all day sightseeing away from it.
On a positive note the food is wholesome and you won't go hungry.
