“Holidays spent in July 2012 (Erikos, Anna & George)”
Reviewed 17 July 2012

Nice hotel at a beautiful spot near Finikounda (2km away approx.) with a family-run business atmosphere. Our room was spacious, clean with all the basic amenities available. Most of the rooms have sea view. The staff was very polite and helpful at all our requests for our nine month old baby. The beach in front of the hotel is wonderful, although you have to make your own arrangements for shade, since it is not organized due to environmental reasons (I believe that it is one of those beaches where sea turtles lay their eggs). Crystal clear waters which is really all you need! Unfortunately during the period that we visited the hotel's restaurant was not open, but we managed to find a great taverna in the village of Finikounda named "Antonis" (open only in the evenings) where the food, the wine and the service (english speaking) was excellent by a native family who has spent time in the US and they know how to treat customers. Don't be daunted by the few customers (recession and local immoral competition have taken their toll) and the limited dish choice, because quality is all that matters!

The paradise hotel resort is almost on the beach (sea view), modern and clean with a nice swimming pool.
Everyone made our arrival and stay convenient in every way. The rooms are beautifully appointed and equipped with all amenities. We had an appartment with a lot of space and a lovely terrasse.
The staff is offering a great quality of service in different languages (at least english and german...). The breakfast was very good as well.
To be recommended, thanks a lot, we will come back.

Very good hotel. Some improvements need to be done at the A/C systems, in case somebody is "difficult" customer. The staff is very helpful, friendly and really proffesionals.For 4stars hotel, it provides 'more to expect" services. A really diamond! The beach is only 100 meters from the hotel. In 5 minutes you are in Finikounda city. Using the road outside from the hotel, you are :
1. 10 minutes from Koroni at the South
2. 15 minutes from Methoni at the North (there is a fanstastic old castle there - opening hours 09:00-15:00 daily).
Breakfast is American type breakfast. You can eat either at the hotel (appr. 7 euros per plate-really cheap) or at a tavern named "LAMPES"(fantastic and cheap food- high quality food and service).

Location: The hotel is near (120 m) a great sandy beach (according to me, the best in the area). The beach is maybe 500 m long, the water is crystal clear, the sea is quite calm even if it is windy (during summer the winds in Greece are in general from Northern directions) and it is not so crowded. But be aware that - currently - it is not organized, so you better bring your own umbrellas / chairs etc. (The umbrellas provided by the reception are, well, not of first quality and in case of strong winds they will cause you some trouble). The distance to the hotel is covered in approx. 5 min by foot (those 5 min. can seem quite long in case you have to carry - appart from umbrellas, chairs etc. also babies). Also, if you want to have a coffee, beer, water etc, you have to go back to your hotel bar... Alternatively, you can go to the beach by car (2 min.) just to facilitate the transport of your personal belongings. In walking distance there are no restaurants or bars, the distance to the village of Finikounda is 2 km. There is only a super market approx. 200 m from the hotel. Given the fact that the hotel does not serve dinner, you have to use your car in order to have dinner, you cannot just leave your hotel for a stroll.

Rooms: Not bad, but the bathroom was quite a disappointment (detail: There are no photos of the bathroom on the website of the hotel...) The drain was not working properly in the shower, so the general impression was that it is not very clean. For wiping your feet, there was a dirty-looking towel on the floor. This was quite annoying for the prices requested.

On the other hand, the breakfast is quite good and the prices at the bar are very good.
Service was in general quite good and friendly.

Lunch is served between 13:00-16:00 with 3 different meals every day at very reasonable prices (approx. 7 Euros for a meal).

Sound insulation of the rooms is quite good, so even if there are kids next to your room, they are most probably not going to disturb your sleep.

All in all, it is not bad, but not worth 4 stars... If the bathrooms were better, i would have left with a much better impression, as there are as i said before also very positive aspects of the hotel.

We stayed in Paradise Resort for the weekend of our wedding where also 40 of our guests were hosted. So I am writing this review on behalf of more than 40 people! Paradise Resort is a great place to spend your vacation. It is decorated in a very nice and modern way, minimal/lounge/mediteranean atmosphere is all around. It is exceptionally clean and very good managed. The greatest beach of foinikounda (I would say one of the best beaches in Greece) is at your feet. The prices are quite affordable for what this hotel offers. And the stuff is simply great. Many thanks to Vaso from the net also!! As we know Foinikounda for more than 20 years, I can assure you that you cant find a better place to stay there.

The hotel was very nice,clean and perfect decorated. The room was spacious and clean.The staff was very friendly and helpful which i think is one of the most important things in our days.The breakfast has a big variety and the bar prices were very good. The only disadvantage during our 2 days stay was that they didn't change our towels.
The overall stay was marvelous,the hotel is highly recommended.
