This is an older style motel that's been refurbished and is operated by a really friendly family. There's no lift so if climbing stairs is an issue for you make sure you mention it. The rooms are clean, freshly painted, have nice comfortable bedding as well as a fridge, coffee/tea making.The room I had also had a small balcony with...

Dennis and Tennille were very helpful and made our stay very pleasant. The motel is dated but is clean and has the basic necessities needed for a comfortable stay including free wi fi, which does work. Being less than 10 minutes from the Casino, Airport and city centre makes the Paravista's location very handy.

Good access to the airport and the casino makes the Paravista an ok stopover. Very basic and dated but well cared for and good parking. Easy late check in. and a balcony if you want fresh air. Reasonable price in an expensive town

Motel was built early 70's and is obviously a little dated. Bed was comfortable, shower was hot, fridge was cold, TV and Austar worked, Free Wifi and parking. Walking distance to shops, restaurants and tavern. Close to airport and city centre. Teneile and Denis only too happy to sort out any queries we had.

Stayed there last weekend. Motel is 'dated' and badly needs an upgrade. Cockroaches in the room. TV was an old 'boxy' type that did not work properly. I complained and it was replaced with a new one. Quiet surroundings and handy to CBD. Would not stay there again.

Our stay at Paravista was not the best. The rooms were very rundown, cupboards broken, floors were dirty and the room smelled terribly. The beds which my kids were sleeping on had black ants, and although we requested the sheets to be changed the ants kept coming. I couldn't sleep as I was concerned that the ants would crawl into...

We stayed here for a few days back in 2013. I have a 4-year old daughter who is never in any way annoyingly noisy. The day after we checked in, at around 10am, we were going out to Casuarina to do some last minute shopping before our flight back to Manila. My daughter was singing in the lobby when she...

So buy it and invest! Clearly the owners have not spent big for a while although travelling the world has made me immune to imperfections. It would lose points for the wifi going at one point but the lovely couple looking after things had that fixed so, for them, a point back. My ground floor balcony on 1st trip overlooked...
