Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Outstanding hotel as soon as you walk in the beautiful lobby, met with smiles and cooling cloths, stayed in a pool villa, right by one of the 2 pools,(coconut pool). Staff made our stay, very polite happy to engage with children, breakfast well catered for all nationalities, staff realised it was my birthday and an impromptu happy birthday was sung by all at the restaurant. A small birthday cake was presented to me with a candle to blow out. After a busy day at a local water park, came back to our room to find another birthday cake waiting for me. Room service very efficient, and not overly priced. A short walk to the beach with lots of bars restaurants and street vendors, 7 elevens everywhere. Live music at the hotel beach bar & restaurant (Mint) well worth a visit. Excusrions Barter the night before to get a deal, Elephant Care Park Nai Dee Phuket a must Ethical and Elephants treated so well, no riding obviously, these animals have been rescued from years of working in the logging industry, taxis reasonable and will wait while you explore beaches or with us a water park and visiting Big Buddha (highly recommended) Kata Noi Beach as the name suggest in Thai is small, less than one kilometer in length and even quieter than its big sister Kata Beach. Great snorkeling around the rocks 5 nights not enough but going for other adventures in Khao Lak

Excellent choice. An oasis. Great service and hospitality. It is a large area full of green, great pools for family, a wonderful Spa, amazing breakfasts!!! I am so pleased with every aspect of this resort. I might wish the interior restaurant stayed open, I preferred it to Mint, but I will not complain. Plus, you can walk in the town, hire tours, get trustworthy advice.

Leamington Spa, United Kingdom142 contributions55 helpful votes
Great resort for families. Kids club is actually a soft play area with toys and open all day. Gym facilities are good for a hotel with one of each type of cardio machine and free weights: Staff are very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the garden villa which comes with a plunge pool which our 2 year old loved, also access to the coconut pool, although the main pool is more suited to kids. Breakfast was good with lots of western/Asian choices Tip - They don’t take Amex or debit cards so you need to have either a visa/Mastercard or minimum 3k cash to pay as deposit to enable food and drinks to be put on the room.

We have been visiting Phuket for many years . Our last visit was in 2019. We stayed in nearby hotels walking distance to Karon beach . It’s our first time with Paradox , stayed here from the 26th January to 7th February . The check in process was good . Friendly staff from reception to restaurant specially the breakfast staff , they always have time to chat with you to make sure you are ok. Great location, only 5 minutes walks to Karon beach , shops & nearest restaurants . Spacious & newly renovated room , good size bathroom & clean . Room facilities Fridge Safe Large TV Coffee We had a lovely & comfortable time here . Stunning view from our balcony , beach view & we enjoyed watching the sunset each night . Love the pool & tropical garden & plenty of space to lounge by the pool or garden . Well maintained garden & we always find a lovely & private area to relax . Beautiful walk way to Karon beach & restaurants . It’s like little village with lots of individual villas accommodation ideal for family with young children . Highly recommend to family & friends . Thank you Paradox Resort & SPA PHUKET . Anthony & Melinda England

Keng did a very nice service, he is a very friendly person. He served us at the pool and was kindly serving our dishes. He was very sorry that the first choice was not possible due to a damage in the kitchen. His service was quick and his ability to speak English was good.

For the price you pay, compared to the other resorts around, Paradox is actually pretty good. The location was great, the rooms spacious and clean. The resort itself its beautiful and so so green! so many trees and foliage, and the resort is HUGE. The staff is also very nice, their command of English is not the best, but they try really hard and are very attentive. The pool never felt crowded and we always managed to find a sunbed on either pool. One of the things i REALLY appreciated about Paradox is that we booked ahead of the holidays and closer to our stay i noticed that the room price dropped drastically, i contacted the hotel since i booked direct and they upgraded my stay to a pool villa. Their manager and front desk were amazing in honoring the rate we paid. Now the not so great. The toiletries in the hotel are very cheap, which i think it can be changed so easily. All beach towels were a bit old, same with the furnishings of the hotel and in the room. Some of the rooms are being renovated so this might change in the near future. Breakfast can def be improved, we were there 5 days and it was the same and the selection not large enough, very very basic. Another issue we had is that we booked an airport pick up and we had to wait for the car for 40 min after we landed which was annoying to wait around. All in all it was a wonderful stay with some hiccups but the staff and the grounds of the hotel are so nice and beautiful that it supersedes the bad.

Excellent location, very caring staff and gorgeous landscape. The hotel does not have its own beach but it is across the road, 2 min walking distance, so conveniently located and easy to access. We had amazing time in Paradox and would love to come back!
