We didn't like the plastic forks, spoons and knifes that we have to use for eating our breakfast.

This hotel has a policy to keep you deposit for up to 40 days. On check in we were informed that the deposit will be returned within 7 business days. When I asked to speak to manager I was told they can only EMAIL, they can not make phone calls. The room was not that clean and one of the curtain was held to the rail with dog clips and as a result you could not slide it. Most of the personal barely speak English...

Good morning Guest, We would like to clarify what you have written in your review is incorrect. We are NOT holding your deposit, your bank is responsible for holding your deposit and it does not ever enter our bank account. We notify this to guests as a courtesy that the highest maximum days is 40 which is what the banks have explained to us - this is not our policy and we give the guests an option to do cash which is given straight back to you on departure. We also provide an ATM at reception for this option. If you fail to choose the cash option unfortunately you do have to wait for the banks to release your funds. None of our curtains are held together with dog clips. We find that very offensive that you would judge our staff who tried to assist you to get your monies back quicker. We also don't appreciate being yelled at on the telephone while we try to explain the banks policies and trying to help you. Paradise Island Resort

We loved the location and proximity to shops and beach, the river outlook was lovely, and pool area was fantastic. Staff were always helpful and friendly. Cleanliness in the room was a bit disappointing however it didn't change the fact we had a great few days away at Paradise Island Resort.

The pool is the best feature of this resort and is great. Our room however had a horrible smell, stains everywhere, holes in the doors and the shower was broken.
