We were looking for a quiet, out of the way place and this was it! Great staff, private beach, swimming pool, excellent food and very quiet - just what we needed. Thank you Vince, Rosie and Craig for a wonderful 4 day staycation. "The Pirate"

Popa Paradise is the perfect spot if you are looking for a beautiful secluded spot to rest and relax. The owners and staff are very friendly and accommodating! The casita ocean room has an amazing view and the food is excellent!
