Relax the Weekend Away at Paradox
We enjoyed the sleek modern design and thoughtful touches, comfortable beds, and excellent lighting in our rooms. The pool area is really nice with a heated pool that was pristine and a oversized relaxing jacuzzi. There are some wonderfully appointed cabanas for lazying away a weekend with family and friends. Has a young vibe (we aren't) but we felt very comfortable and well looked after during our stay. We enjoyed spending a couple of hours in front of the lounge fireplace. My 1 recommendation is the restaurant and grill add a few plant-based food options such as: hummus and pita bread, fresh green salad, meatless chili, pasta or risotto, veggie burger and oatmeal. A few items like this and we vegans wouldn't even have to leave for food!

Dog friendly resort like hotel in Santa Cruz
Hotel was nice and conveniently located. Its any easy 1 mile walk to the boardwalk. Options for a dog friendly resort style hotel with pool/spa and outdoor restaurant are limited in Santa Cruz / Capitola area. Check-in and front desk staff were friendly and accommodating. The beds in the rooms are really comfortable and the seating just outside the rooms are a great plus as well. A couple of thing that we didn't like so much were: 1. Pool Bar/Restaurant service is slow. Signs say no outside food/drinks allowed, but good luck getting a drink poolside... The one server they had didn't seem to care about serving people. I recommend flagging down a waiter or just go to the bar to place an order. It still might take a while, but at least you get your order in. 2. Parking fees: They have a big parking lot on their property, but they charge you an extra $10 fee at check in if you have a car. How else are you supposed to get there? The parking is free for anyone coming to eat at their restaurant, so why charge an extra fee for people actually staying there? It wasn't disclosed in the Hotels.com website, so the front desk was nice enough to wave the fee.

Wonderful hotel, awful restaurant.
The hotel itself was great. Clean, beautiful, comfortable. The one thing that was not great was the restaurant. It was awful. The chief should be replaced. We ordered the pork belly and the "roasted" beet salad (which was, for one, not roasted, it was clearly boiled). The pork belly was bland, and completely lacking in flavor. The beet salad was the same. If you aren't there for the food, the rest of the place was wonderful!

A great Hotel that offers a lot.
The Paradox is a cool hotel with a great outside pool area with extended bar / restaurant service. Staff was friendly and everything inside and on the grounds was very clean. When we checked in all was smooth. When we got to our room we found that the toilet was not working and we were short a couple of glasses and other amenities. We called to the front desk and was told someone would be to our room in 10-15 minutes. No one arrived so I called again....this time asking for another room. They took care of it and said someone will be right up to bring our new key cards. Another 15 minutes...what seemed like an eternity before Tony arrived with the keys. He was great in helping us and making sure our new room was properly stocked and all in working order. We spent the rest of the evening around the pool and restaurant area. All the staff were friendly and timely. We ate at the restaurant which was reasonable and good food with more then we could eat. Other then the little incident with the room I give this hotel top rating and highly recommend it. Lastly it is a little less than a mile to the Santa Cruz pier and beach. Walking through the main street downtown you will also see many many homeless folks minding their own business. Parking on the hotel grounds was plentiful.
