This is the most relaxing peaceful place on earth.
La Paz is wonderful and it was enjoyable staying in this little haven across from town. The condo complex overall is nice and we essentially had the beach to ourselves. (We were told most of the condos were full but it certainly didn't feel busy or crowded at all.) You can walk quite a long way (at least 2 miles) on it and the free access to kayaks and paddleboards was great. (The complex only has a few but hardly anyone seems to use them so we were able to access them each morning.) The pool is nice as well. The restaurant on the property has pretty limited hours (noon to 7pm, 6 days a week) so you do need to plan ahead a bit for meals and go to town for groceries and variety. The shuttle service to and from the water taxi is prompt and efficient (it's >1 mile walk from the condo to the dock so you have to plan ahead a little); the water taxi also ran on time (about 10 min trip).
In terms of this particular unit and it's management, we were disappointed. We had no information about the specifics of our arrival (like where to meet the manager, get keys or other logistics) until about 36 hours prior to our arrival - and that was only after effort on our part to make contact. The directions we were given to the marina were poor (we drove up from Cabo San Lucas). On the night we checked in, the manager had only one working key card for the condo; we were told we would be given two others along with extra bottled water the next morning. We never heard from the manager again; we ended up having to go get key cards made ourselves later that day and the bottled water only showed up 2 days later.
The condition of the condo was pretty good overall but, for the amount of money we paid, we expected something more -> for instance, there were towels that were clean but had tears and some of the bedding had stains.
Overall we enjoyed our visit but are unlikely to use this particular condo unit or manager again.
We stayed in a spacious and clean third floor 3 bedroom for two weeks. Several friends and family members came and went in that time. The card reader keys were ideal and they had no problem getting us 4 instead of 2. There was a water issue during our stay, meaning we were asked to curb use if dishwasher and clothes washer but it wasn't terrible...who wants to do a lot of laundry anyway. We were able to find oars for the free kayaks , but it could have been problematic if we weren't a bit aggressive. There's a water treatment smell each morning for a few hours but it's only unpleasant and should not sway someone from staying here.
Nothing to do with the condo:
First of all we flew into SJD and rented a car from Dollar. Our only disappointment. Got a great pre-booking price for the car. However, they charged an additional fee per day for standard liability insurance (2x the listed) "It's because of the location and time of year". I read previous issues regarding the cost of insurance but was in no way expecting it to be that much as my confirmation stated $12-20 per day depending on the vehicle type (mine was a standard full size). There was no negotiating. STAY AWAY FROM DOLLAR!!
The condo/La Paz:
My family and I just returned from a 10 day stay in this spectacular condo at Paraiso Del Mar! We could not have been happier from the beautiful spacious condo to the wonderful resort, wonderful staff and the fabulous city of La Paz! We did not know what to expect with the resort being on a peninsula. However, with the efficient water taxis and vans which come to your door to take you to the boat slip, this only added to the entire ambiance of the resort!! The condo itself is so tastefully decorated and so well equipped with everything you could possibly need! We really appreciated the abundance of towels! The views from the balconies were simply amazing- we could see dolphins swimming everyday and kayaked with them on a couple of occasions. Maude, the manager was very easy to work with and communicate with. She even completed our grocery shopping prior to our arrival and it was all put away. Maude even purchased a BBQ for the patio!!
La Paz is a lovely city with so many hole in the wall places to get absolutely delicious food!!! In fact the best and cheapest food we have ever had in all of Mexico! I could go on about all of the great restaurants but to just mention a few-there is the Rancho Viejo- unbelievable!! The burgers, burritos, chimicangas, shrimp tacos at Bandidos- fabulous!! The pool bar/restaurant had excellent drinks and food as well. They will even prepare a specific dinner for your party if you like or cook your catch of the day!
Todos Santos is worth a visit- such a cute, quaint little artsy town. La Ventana worth a visit as well, not to mention all of the beautiful beaches that are close by.
Try La Paz and try this amazing condo- fabulous vacation! Thank you Maude, you were great!!
About the prior review, no ants, rare rusty water, DVD players worked with DVD's (not blue ray), van and water taxi not an issue, internet worked flawlessly in the condo
I would not stay here again or recommend it. Our family was finally able to afford to get away together as a family of 5 - that can be challenging. Our children are 17, 3 and 1.
My husband and I are both self employed and still needed to check in with work make this vacation possible.
And this is what we encountered: No internet, no TV, no blu ray DVD player (to play the movies we had to buy), no telephone (to call the ground transportation), rusty water that never really went away, ants absolutely everywhere (toilet to the kitchen) and least important but one tiny couch that my family could not sit together on in the enormous condo. I also would not do another stay where I had to take a shuttle (which you have call - roaming international on your cell phone) to get to a boat to get to the mainland, only runs every half hour.
Maybe because it was not during peek season that we the short end of the stick. The staff, people living there and La Paz itself was great. We will go to La Paz again, this was our 4th time.
We were 2 couples looking for sun (OK, not alot of that during our week) rest (alot of that) fun (alot of that) great food (definitely that). The condo is fabulous. I wish I could have taken the bed with me. The restaurant by the pool had exceptional food - even made special requests not on the menu. We were not able to get into town because of the wind a couple days but we didnt' care. We loved the water taxi - it added to the adventure. Maude arranged transportation with Mannie - he became our connection to fishing, shopping, sightseeing - whatever you need, everyone knows Mannie! I highly recommend using his service.
I'm not sure why, but I had no problem getting internet service but my friends weren't able to on their computers. We got a cable in town and was able to watch Netflix movies on the TV from my computer.
We would definitely like to go back - maybe the end of Jan or in Feb when the weather might be alittle better. Friday and Sat were perfect unfortunately we left on Sat. No predicting the weather. Locals said it is normally warmer this time of year.
