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.

We visited La Paz over Spring Break to do some fishing and relaxing. We stayed in Unit E304 , a 3 bedroom, 4 bath condo with excellent pool and water views. Paraiso Del Mar is a very nice resort comprised of 5 different buildings, buildings A-E, each housing privately owned condos. The resort sits alone on a peninsula known as the El Mogote and requires a water taxi to transport you to and from the main strip of La Paz, known as the Malecon. The water taxi runs back and forth all day based on a published schedule and you can catch one every 30 minutes which we found to be very convenient and an excellent way to meet some of the friendly Ex-Pats staying/living there who were all willing to share information about local restaurants and things to do.

The Condo was PERFECT! once we arrived we called Penny our contact and met her at Marina Cortez, where she gave us a list of the times the water taxi runs at. We arrived to the Condo at the Mogote and it was great, we loved it. There were 6 people in our group and each had a big room each with bathroom and shower, not to mention huge beds. The condos are great, clean and peaceful! and the staff was always on time and attentive to our needs!! We will definitely be coming back to La Paz and we will be staying here again!! I do recommend you buy food first since there is no huge market stores on the Mogote. Overall the pool is clean, the Jacuzzi is warm and the condos are perfect and clean!! You will not regret staying here!

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.
