From beginning to end this was one of the most enjoyable vacations my family and I have had. The booking process was smooth and Chelle always responded our questions within one day. The final details about arrival and recommendations about our stay were kindly and timely provided by Penny, who welcomed us at Marina Cortez in La Paz. The condo was even better than we expected. The pictures do not do it justice. It is very spacious and comfortable. Great location just steps away from the beach! All the personnel at Paraiso Del Mar were very friendly and responsive to our requests. Having to take the water taxi and the shuttle to travel to and from the city takes some getting used to but it is well worth it. The complex is absolutely beautiful. Other people staying there were very respectful and we did not have any issues with loud neighbors or anything of the sort. The pool is very nice, and you can rent out a kayak or a paddle board for free to take out into the ocean which is very calm, no crazy loud rolling waves. If you prefer to stay in, there won't be any fights over the remote because there is a TV in every room and one in the living room. The kitchen was fully equipped, though we mostly ate out at the multiple restaurants that are walking distance from Marina Cortez. The dock at Marina Cortez is right where the malecon starts, which is perfect to walk around. The experience was overall really great and we would as a family highly recommend this to anyone.

My wife and I selected this Penthouse property along with another 3 bedroom condominium in the E building for our 50th anniversary family reunion for our three married children and our six granddaughters ranging in age from 3 to 21. Everyone loved the accommodations. While the Penthouse could not sleep all 14 of us, it worked great for our family gatherings. The fabulous on-site Survivor Bar (extraordinary restaurant) delivered food to the Penthouse for selected dinners. (It's not open every day.) Chelle and Penny make great hosts and are most hospitable and accommodating! The property is very private and quiet but a short 10 minute free ferry boat ride from this interesting city of LaPaz. The whale shark snorkeling is a must --even for those who choose to just watch from the boat. This was our second visit to this property; we certainly hope to return!

This condo is perfect for those who want a beautiful, peaceful vacation away from crowded, noisy resorts while still keeping resort-like amenities and décor. The space and layout of the condo is superb, with lots of room for everyone and views (and sounds) of the Sea of Cortez from every room. While we appreciated the modern appliances (including a dishwasher!), we loved the Survivor Bar beside the pool even more. We had intended to cook every day, but once we got a taste of the food served up by the fantastic bar staff, we were hooked and ate there every night it was open. The pools on the grounds are large, clear, and clean, and the grounds are wonderfully maintained. The condo and property look and feel like a resort without all the hustle and bustle. Best of all, the beach is right there! Miles of secluded, beautiful, sandy beach with millions of shells to collect. We loved that the condo included almost everything we could need so we didn’t have to pack it. There are beach towels, hair dryers, dishes, coffee, sugar, and more, so you don’t need to buy it and tote it back. We also loved relaxing at night watching the American satellite TV because it was one of those nice touches that make you feel a little more at home. Five-gallon water jugs are available for a nominal fee and trucked in regularly. The office staff are super helpful. Most of all, we appreciated the prepaid, local cell phone and the information Chelle and Penny gave us to prepare us for what to expect and what to do (including all the best restaurants!). All in all, this is a spacious, comfortable condo with fantastic views, grounds, and staff and much quieter than staying in the city. We highly recommend it!

The condo was great. Lots of room for 4. The outside facilities were fantastic! The pool and hot tub could have been a little warmer, but after a round of golf both were great. The Survivor Bar met all your needs for food and drinks. Couldn't ask for better treatment from the staff. The golf course is well laid out to challenge any golfer, but is fun to play. The greens are in excellent shape! Looking forward to playing the course again. Marco and his assistant Maria treated us with the utmost respect and professionalism! Chewy, the chef at the restaurant and bar, provides tasty food and great drinks! We are looking forward to visiting again.

Two couples shared a condo for a week. Enough space for privacy and a nice kitchen for preparing meals in case we choose not to eat at the Survivor Bar, but the food was so good there we made that our usual choice for dinner. What a great place to relax and enjoy the peaceful ocean setting! We loved the pool and were fortunate that it wasn't terribly busy, so we could get chairs any time. Transportation was prompt and courteous. The water taxi between La Paz and the resort is always on time. We'd been at Cabo San Lucas the previous week. The contrast between that location, which is very busy and super developed and the condo at La Paz was striking. We'd go back to La Paz over Cabo anytime! Property Managers Penny and Jon were great and responsive to our questions and needs.
