We are a French family of five people who had long dreamed of knowing the Baja California ... so after a long journey across the peninsula (but you can arrive directly by plane!) Here we are in late July to stay and rest a few days in La Paz, and there wonderful surprise ...
We were greeted like kings of the harbor and we were taken aboard a small boat quite charming on "El Paraiso del Mar" ... Happiness! Our apartment was large, luxurious, comfortable, with great views of the Sea of Cortez ... Great pool ... great restaurant ... great service always attentive and friendly to transport you into town (a few minutes) .. the beach , dolphins ... How to summarize all the wonders we have seen and experienced? Chelle thank you, thank you for your kindness and efficiency ... Everything was perfect!
We had a wonderful experience in La Paz and especially loved our condo at Paraiso del Mar. It had everything we wanted plus, it was beautiful and spacious.
The location can't be beat! The condo is fabulous (clean and luxurious). The view from the balcony (beach and pool area) is spectacular! The pool bar (drinks and food) is a must visit!! I would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.
We decided to vacation in La Paz for the first time this summer. We stayed at Paraiso del Mar for one month. It was wonderful! Our four kids loved to paddle board, snorkel and kayak in the Sea of Cortez. It is a great place for walks along the quiet beaches, collecting shells, and enjoying the magnificent sunsets! The pool was very large with a view to the ocean. Our condo was well appointed and had ocean views from every bedroom. The decor and appliances were all new. Everything was exactly as we hoped it would be! Everyone at Paraiso was extremely friendly and helpful. They had wonderful suggestions about places to eat and things to see and do! It was the perfect place to relax and unwind! We will definitely be back!
I am not too much into doing reviews. I already have to do that for 6 direct reports at work and takes too much time, which is the only truly non renewable resource we have. But this is different, and as a La Paz native, I think I can give an honest assessment of what this place is, and is not. From the onset the process was smooth, the owner responsive and courteous. Our arrival was uneventful and with the proper directions after arriving at LAP airport provided by the owner, within 35 minutes we were at the condo. The views are spectacular, the beach is clean and pristine. The pool huge (50 meters) and the people at the swim-up bar friendly and accessible.
My husband, daughter, her husband and 3 young boys rented the 3 bedroom unit D301. It was an amazing home for 4 days. It is well equipped with a full kitchen, linens, WiFi, washer/dryer and 8 gallon bottle drinking water and even an Xbox/with games for the kids! The grounds are well kept, the pool is huge with a poolside restaurant that cooks fresh fish and other dishes all day long to order! La Paz is an interesting colonial city with tons of things to do. We took a Whale Shark expedition, where you can swim with these huge 20 foot gentile fish, it was so fun. Just exploring old town is an experience.
Our holiday could not have been more divine. Everything, and I mean literally everything, worked out perfectly. The unit had everything we could have wanted and more. So comfortable. Clean. Tasteful and cozy decor, soft linens, great pots and knives, coffee pot, blender, all the little things that make being in a rented kitchen feel like you are at home. Awesome filtered water too! The view was the best in the whole place we are convinced. The weather could not have been better. After going into La Paz a few times (and enjoying its charm) we decided to stay put we liked it so much. Pablo and Sergio (pool dudes) definitely put on the best meal we had anywhere. They were great, made us feel welcome and very well cared for.
The owner Chelle and her property managers Jon and Penny are all a class act. They are very responsive to your needs and have great suggestions where to eat, etc. They lent us a local cell phone for the week which was really convenient. Please is very clean and comfortable. Food at the resort is an informal thing but probably the best food we had in La Paz. Getting to and from La Paz is via walk-on ferry that holds 30 so a little cumbersome but it's nice at night because you're on the peninsula and have the place to yourself. We parked our rental car at the marina in town so it was available any time.
We have visited many different cities in Mexico, but I have to say, our stay in La Paz was an outstanding one. The condo we stayed in was nicely decorated and all the necessities one would need. Lots of towels, dishes, beach towels, etc. Everyone there was friendly and more than willing to help if you needed it. Highly recommend it, but be aware there is no Satellite TV. That was the only draw back, but there is so much to see and do that it did not matter.
Our holiday could not have been more divine. Literally everything,was just perfect starting, with booking with Chelle who gave us all the advice and guidance we needed for the perfect vacation. The unit had everything we could have wanted and more. So comfortable. Clean. Tasteful and cozy decor, two balconies, privacy, quiet, soft linens, great pots,pans and sharp knives, coffee pot, blender, all the little things that make being in a rented kitchen feel like you are at home. Awesome double filtered water too! The view was the best in the whole resort we are convinced. The weather could not have been better.
Everything about this place was wonderful. The people were very friendly and helpful when needed. The little boat ride to the mainland was a wonderful little ride. Golf carts were also a nice change. The condo was big, clean, nicely decorated, and with all the amenities one would need. Highly recommend it. The owner was wonderful to work with and helped solve any issues that we were concerned about, and her follow up was immediately after we returned. WONDERFUL
The pictures don't lie, that is the view! The condo is steps from a great pool, pool bar and reatuarant. The restaurant was a great option after a long day of activities. Go a little further and you're on a nice wide beach. The water was calm which made for great paddle boarding and kayaking. Tennis and golf are right on the island. Trips into town were easy with the water taxi. Overall a very enjoyable stay.
The 2-bdrm condo at Paraiso del Mar (E402) was exactly as portrayed, in pristine condition and tastefully decorated with perfect views of Sea of Cortez, LaPaz, the pool, and landscaped grounds. The unit furnishings, comfy patio furniture, decor, bedding and kitchen accoutrements were perfect. The resort amenities were great and the staff was top notch! Property manager Chelle provided excellent support, and answered many, many questions; she connected us with a driver from the airport with a stop for groceries, and a golf cart to rent.
Loved our stay at this unit. Great location within the complex. Very quiet with great views. I always felt safe. The grounds and unit were very clean and well kept. Fantastic, consistent food and drinks at the pool bar. Seafood and margaritas were the best!! Highly recommend this location. Great place to get away from it all.
