We went to the restaurant for our friends birthday. Best choice ever. Jaime and his staff made an unforgettable night possible. They even send a taxi to get the best cake in town for our friend. That's just awesome. Thanks again Amigo.

Really enjoyed the food they serve. Fresh ingredients and their service is more than great. Prices are good. The Restaurant view is peaceful to the bay of Flamingo and Potrero thanks to the location Paradise has in. For sure I will be back.

The hotel itself looks like it is in process of improvement, maybe someone just bought it recently, it definitely has a lot of potential but you will notice unfinished things around the building and the staff is very nice but seems like they are still learning. The swimming pool was always full of kids so we didn't use it, there... More

The cuisine at the restaurant was top notch. We both had Mahi-Mahi prepared different ways and both were excellent. The service by Carlos and the ambience, which included the sun setting over the ocean was the best! They have an extensive wine list and the bartender is first class- and the music they play is appropriate. This place is a... More

Note to TripAdvisor: This hotel is now called "Paradise Hotel and Casino." There may be an "El Sabanero" down the coast, I believe, but the hotel described here is on a hill 5 blocks from Flamingo Beach.

This hotel suffers from lack of detail. Allow me to explain: The good: price is good and the hotel does have a great ocean view. The So-so: most everything fits here. Food is not great, but not bad either, just food, kinda forgettable. There are tons of missing details that in and of themselves are not important but when you... More
