To be honest, when we first walked into our 2 bedroom condo, we were disappointed. You can tell this resort has been thru some tough times with hurricanes and lots of rain damage. The ceilings were stained and it smelled musty.
After one night, we were pleasantly surprised at how comfy and quiet it was there. Even though it's not top notch to comparable high rise resorts, it has it's own charm with a rustic personality.
The beds were comfy, the shower was great! It could use a little updating and a little more personal touch. The kitchen was very old, but we had everything we needed.
Nothing overly fancy, but it met our needs.
The beach is right across the street and located in the heart of wonderful seafood restaurants and shops. Try not to miss Steamer's Restaurant! The lunch menu was spectacular and cheap!
Don't be afraid to visit this area because of the oil spill. It's all cleaned up and the beaches and ocean were beautiful!
The pool is not heated, but the hot tub was wonderful!
Paradise Ilse is a diamond in the rough.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are across the road from the public access to the beach. Great location. Our buildings are on pilings so there are a few steps to climb. We offer a towel exchange on Wednesday and also have a coin op laundry room. We are not a high-rise or a huge complex, more of a quaint "old Florida" kind of place! Great place for families as we have full kitchens in case you want to save some money and eat in. Our pool is huge and in the middle of the complex with our hot tub. Bahama Bob's is across the street and we are within walking distance to The Hangout and other businesses. Paradise Isle received the RCI Hospitality award for 2014,2015,2016,2017. We are under new management as of 02/2014. ... more less
