|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
The condo is conveniently located on the 1st floor of a beachfront building overlooking the Sea of Cortez. You'll watch the sunsets right from the patio, and enjoy spectacular views from the comfort of the spacious living room. The unit is elegant and furnished with luxury decor that will make you feel comfortable and at home the moment you step through the door. At around 2000 square feet the unit is very spacious and has King, 2 Queen size beds and 4 bathrooms where each bedroom has its own bathroom. The sofa in the living room also folds out for an additional bed.
Several steps from the patios is a large infinity swimming pool and hot tub that the whole family can enjoy. The pool has a pool bar and restaurant dubbed Survivor Bar that you can enjoy either from the water, at tables by the pool, or have the waiters deliver your orders directly to the unit. If you catch any fish during your stay then the chefs at the pool bar can prepare and cook the fish for you.
A few steps past the pool you'll arrive at an incredible beach that stretches for miles around the peninsula. The community has a challenging 18 hole Arthur Hills golf course, tennis courts, and offers sea kayaking. There is an assortment of activities to choose from inside the city of La Paz and surrounding areas. By boat, it's possible to explore and snorkel around the nearby island of Espiritu Santo, experience the area's world famous fishing, and observe the spectacular marine life. There are many amazing restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and social events to choose from. Use the freely available kayaks to swim with the whale sharks and dolphins that regularly feed off the beach in front of the condo.
The ferry boats run every 30 minutes from 730am to 1130pm, and will ferry you between the dock at the La Paz boardwalk and the development on the peninsula at no charge. If staying out past 1130pm then a late-night boat is available for a fee. Inside the development free transportation is available to drive you between the condos, boat dock, and golf course. It's also possible to rent golf carts for the entire length of your stay to use as transportation inside the development.
To get to La Paz either fly directly into the La Paz airport and take a 10 minute taxi to the boat dock, or fly into Cabo and take a scenic 2 hour shuttle to La Paz. We recommend stopping by Wal Mart on your way to the boat dock to pick up food, snacks, and drinks before arriving to the unit.
After our first visit, we were hooked. It was clear that this location and the brand new resort community was the definition of paradise, and that we were going to want to spend as much time there as possible. The views are absolutely gorgeous, the weather is amazing, and the area is rich with history and authenticity.
As soon as you step off the airplane, you'll be absorbed into the comfort that you'll experience throughout your vacation, as from start to finish you'll be catered to on every level. Because the unit is located on the first floor, stepping out to the pool or taking a walk down the beach can be done in a few steps and in complete convenience. Travel around the community, as well as to and from the ferry, is free and can be done at anytime of the day.
We loved everything about our stay at Natalia's place! The home was nicely furnished and had everything we need. Kitchen was modern and stocked full of gadgets. There was an iPod stereo system for our phones and a large flat screen for TV. The convenience of being on the first floor can't be understated since it makes walking to the pool so easy. Natalia was responsive and answered all of our questions. The property manager Anna was really nice and greeted us when we first arrived. The development itself is quiet and laid back since only residents and guests are allowed. There weren't many people there at all during our stay so it literally felt like our own personal paradise. Calling transportation to take us to the boat dock was easy and they picked us up right at the doorstep. Most of the staff there is very friendly and speaks English. The restaurant at the pool made great cocktails and their food was fresh and tasty. We kayaked right off the beach there and on one morning had an absolutely incredible experience with a dolphin pod that swam around us. La Paz is a already magical place and staying in the Paraiso Del Mar community made it even better. We're definitely going to come back!!
Finally, we found the ultimate location for vacationing in Mexico. Paraiso del Mar is a gem in the city of La Paz area. Only 10-12 minutes by a free shuttle boat from the city of La Paz (which is very safe and charming place, with a beautiful miles long Malecon - a local term for the boardwalk), and you enter the most relaxing place you can imagine. It is so different from typical tourist destinations like Cabo or Cancun, with often annoying tourist crowds. But don't think that you'll be bored here. There are tennis courts, a great golf course on premises, free paddle boards and kayaks and unbelievable fishing. On top of that, you can walk for miles along the unspoiled beach, often in total solitude.
The accommodation is fantastic. This 3 bedrooms, 4 baths condo has not 1 but 3 entries, so every bedroom can be accessed separately, with total privacy. The condo is very big and furnished beautifully. A big advantage of its location is that you can go to the pool or to the sea right from the patio. You appreciate it even more when going to dine at the pool area, where a few gourmet chefs run an improvised restaurant. If you prefer, they would even bring your order to your room or your patio. This restaurant is so good that on this trip we never dined anywhere else, even though there are a few very good restaurants in La Paz. I am writing this review with a mixed feeling - on the one hand, it's good to share a good experience, on the other hand, one may want to keep this little secret for one's own pleasure. We'll certainly come back here, hopefully many times.
As Midwesterners we've made countless trips to Cancun and most recently three Cabo trips in past four years…my wife, junior in HS and senior collegian totally enjoyed both the downtown community and staff of Paraiso del Mar over our eleven night stay. The citizens of La Paz are incredibly friendly and most respectful. My blonde wife and senior collegian visited downtown to shop and eat a few times and never felt uncomfortable, "spotted" or aggressively approached to purchase or even look in the market or shops. Most certainly--of all destinations and properties we've enjoyed ion Mexico hands down La Paz is our favorite!
Transportation through PanchoTuros was outstanding…Communication from Octavio was timely and responsive just as it was from condo owner Natalia from California and her property manager Ana on site in La Paz. We bought lunch for our driver Sergio in Los Barrillies on the way to La Paz for awesome fish tacos--he also spoke excellent English and knew condo owner Natalia.
Nicholas was the ambassador of transportation and a great representative of the awesome staff at Paraiso del Mar. He spoke excellent English and was always, always on time! My son really enjoyed talking to Pablo of the Survivor Bar staff near the pool. My wife and daughter always had a few daiquiri's at happy hour in the late afternoon!
Marco was very attentive at the Arthur Hills golf course setting us up each time with rental clubs, range time and a cart--my son played four times and myself three! The course is in excellent condition with many waterfront and beachfront holes.
Natalia's condo blew my kids away--we opted for the 3BR set up and weren't even expecting a 4th full bath! The kitchen was well stocked with pans, dish ware and other necessities. We ate breakfasts daily and a few lunches in the condo--allot of snacks too. The two dinners at the Survivor Bar on site were excellent--surf and turf one night and awesome fish taco's and fresh ceviche. The wireless network connected day one and was used steadily through the trip to watch Netflix, surf and check email.
Calm waters on the first Friday and second Saturday allowed us the chance to see our first whale shark and dolphin's up by close by paddleboat instead of an $85/head charter! We can't wait to return to B-104, PdM, La Paz and see our new friends we met these past eleven nights! We returned 78-80 degree temps to 15 below zero temps and 40 below wind chills from the Polar Vortex!
My husband and I spent 3 glorious weeks at this amazing condo. The pictures do not do it justice...it is absolutely beautiful! Tastefully decorated, huge rooms, stocked with every appliance you could want and beautiful linens and towels. The beach is amazing...you can walk for miles on one of the most pristine untouched beaches, and watch the dolphins swim by just about every morning! The staff and property manager, Ana, go above and beyond to help you with anything and make you feel welcome. The infinity pool is huge and beautiful and has a nice bar and restaurant if you choose to take the day off from cooking. Baja California and La Paz itself is one of the best places we have ever been to, and we have done a lot of traveling. You feel safe, the town has many amenities, a beautiful 7 km long boardwalk along the ocean, super friendly people and fabulous restaurants. If you have never been, we highly recommend it! Thank you Natalia for your hospitality at your beautiful condo!
Just returned from a week in paradise with our friends. This condo is in an excellent location-just steps from the pool and beach. We ate most of our meals on the patio and spent the evenings relaxing there with our drinks we kept in our kitchen. We stopped at the store on our way from the airport in the free shuttle and stocked up on beverages and food. We cooked our breakfasts and lunches at the condo and visited La Paz for dinner. The "taxi" is just a phone call away and the boat launch is just a mile from the condo. We also used the bikes for exercise and to explore Paraiso--and the sea kayaks were a new adventure for us. The pool bar is handy but we made our own drinks--not difficult since the condo is so close to the pool. The staff was very nice--helped with arranging our excursions--must go to Isla Espiritu-we used Mar Y Adventura--We also golfed--a very nice course with some great views. This condo has the best location in the whole complex--it is so nice to just walk to the pool and back when you need a snack or a bathroom break! And Natalia made the whole trip easy to plan. THanks for sharing your home with us!
We just returned from a wonderful week in La Paz, staying at Paraiso del Mar. We were very pleased with both the unit and the property. The pictures on the website don't do the unit justice. It is huge, beautiful and spotless! The people who took care of us at Paraiso del Mar were extremely helpful! The arranged transportation to and from the airport with no problems. We loved Ana the property manager, she was so caring. Our two boys (13 and 11) loved taking both the golf cart shuttles around the property and taking the ferry across the short crossing to town. We also loved the complimentary bikes on the property, we would hop on to take rides to the little store, or to the ferry. We also took advantage of the complimentary kayaks! We loved those, and they were always available. The place is really a paradise, so mellow and uncrowded. The pool was gorgeous and it was great to have the pool bar there with food and drinks, which were surprisingly reasonable. It is an amazing place and condo! We are so glad we went, and plan on going again next year. The only thing we would do differently, is fly out of Tijuana instead of LAX. Flights to La Paz on Volaris are much cheaper, we discovered, than Horizon. Anyway, I never write reviews but really wanted to this time, because everything was so perfect!
