Verified Reviews of Hotel Paradox

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Hotel was very clean; loved the beds and pillows so comfortable!"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The hotel was very clean and beds so comfortable; and linens and pillows smelled so fresh. The one negative is the size of the room. It was very small and the bathroom had no counter space. Shower was all glass and pebbled floor. The water pressure was not very strong. Overall, our stay was good. Decor very modern.

"Beautiful, Rustic Chic Charm. "
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The hotel is phenomenal. I loved the rustic class of the hotel and rooms. The pool area and spa is magical. The only complaint would be that some of the restaurant staff seemed snotty, mostly the men.
