Other parents say...

  • At Paradise Villas, true 5-star service is offered to the families. We were in total three families with seven children, half of which were under 3 years old. There was no need to bring anything with us apart from our good mood. The staff of the hotel were amazingly polite and brought us whatever we needed.

  • Before deciding where to go on our vacation, we had great trouble to find a place that combines a relaxed ambience with all the comforts you might need for a baby. Paradise Island Villas offers both. The villas are very elegant and spacious and all the staff members are very friendly and sweet towards the kids. The food is good and so are the cocktails! We recommend it with no hesitation.

  • During breakfast try the homemade jars of “Mom Niki”. They are delicious and made from fruits selected from her garden! Do not forget to also try the warm “loukoumades” with ice cream. Both your kids and yourselves will love them!
