I really don't know where to begin in speaking so highly of The Paramount....this place is just amazing! Pick up from the airport arranged by Silverpoint Resorts was speedy and efficient, and the chilled bottles of water they greeted us with was very welcome! Proximity to the airport is great, around a 20 minute journey.
Upon walking into our room we were actually taken aback, it was huge! My husband and I had a ground floor 1 bedroom apartment, being the smallest of what is available - and it is around 900 sq ft! The open plan layout is wonderful, very cool and spacious. Everything is of excellent quality from the furniture to the complimentary bath robes. The apartment was extremely clean, except we did have a small issue with some ants the 2nd day into our trip - not a problem this was taken care of the same day. The beds are very comfortable and it was nice to be able to watch tv in bed to wind down after a night out - the only gripe I had was that they provide 2 large single beds pushed together rather than a king size bed. Out favourite part of the room was that we had our own private access to the main pool, and being tucked away into the corner made part of the pool feel like our own. It was nice to have the option of lying by the pool at your own patio area or venturing out to the sun loungers around the pool. On previous holidays we never stay at the hotel during the day and my husband never goes in the pool - not on this holiday, quite the opposite. We loved using the pool and swim up bar, in fact we have chosen somewhere with a swim up bar for our next holiday we loved it so much!
The grounds themselves are stunning, very well kept and the unusual design makes the place really stand out - although very unassuming from the outside. It is just the right size - not too big or too small, feels very intimate and comfortable yet very exclusive. The different colours and styles of the rooms from the outside makes The Paramount feel very unique together with each room having its own name - not like many hotels in the area, just row after row of balconies and a grim grey exterior.
Our one drawback of the holiday was a particularly loud family with 4 young children. Although this was no fault of The Paramount's it is up to them to ensure their guests are happy and this family were really very over the top and almost dominated the whole pool area at times. A majority of the guests were couples of all ages, some as part of a group, all looking for a peaceful relaxing break, I think they should have chosen to stay elsewhere - somewhere that caters more towards families! In all fairness I did mention this in our feedback card that perhaps it should be an adult only place - I certainly don't think they'd lose any business!
My husband and I don't normally go to the same place twice as we like to visit different places, but taking all things into account I'd return in a heartbeat, we can't wait for our next visit!
