"My husband and I stayed here as a birthday get away. The condo was just as described and pictured. You are literally steps away from the ocean and the view is fantastic. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. For those interested in doing yoga, there is a great location down the beach at Ak'Bol's that offers daily yoga and great smoothies. There are several great restaurants within walking location including Aji's and the new Rain restaurant. The only downside to the great location is that the beach is a main thoroughfare with people riding bikes. Also, there is no full divider on the patio between the two condo units so privacy is diminished if someone in the next unit is also enjoying their patio. Also, the hot tubs in the resort are not well maintained. However, it is a great destination for relaxing and the snorkeling can't be beat. Make sure to bring bug spray as the mosquitos can be bad especially on the patio at night. Also, bring a flashlight if you want to walk to restaurants in the evening as it is very dark along the beach."Guest: Jackie M.

"A much belated review of Casa de Paradiso, but I give this the highest rating! Two families (four adults, four children ages 7 to 3) spent 12 wonderful days in this home over Christmas. It exceeded our expectations in every way possible. The location is fantastic- outside of town enough to feel relaxed, but close enough to pop in as needed. The location to the Palapa Bar is so awesome, just outside of the home. Having young children, we were NEVER bothered by the noise at night, but loved the ability to grab lunch or dinner and let the kids take in the cool atmosphere of a very friendly location. The house was wonderful- so spacious, clean and comfortable. Beautifully appointed! Orlando was the best ever, he took care of everything and Duny (I hope I spelled that correctly) was fabulous and even spent a few nights watching our children. They were wonderful! Lolly (the home owner) was so helpful in planning our trip and answering questions. This was our third time to Belize and by far our best trip- hands down. We will be renting this house again- it was a vacation of a lifetime. We were literally on the beach- the kids would split their time between the ocean and the pool, playing in the sand and laying in the hammocks. If you are thinking about renting this house, DO IT! I promise you will be blown away. This was my second time renting on VRBO, my first time doing it in Belize and I will never look for another home again. I'm almost sad writing the review, we all miss it so much! Cheers and enjoy!"Guest: Adrienne Date of Stay: December 2014 Review Submitted: January 20, 2015View listing
"Our stay on Bill and Connee's studio apartment was perfect. The location is a great place to kick off fun in San Pedro and the ocean. One doesn't even need transportation to take advantage of island living, or getting there from the airport or ferry (if you don't have a ton of luggage). The studio was perfect. It had everything one would need; a well equipped kitchen, a nice bath, a comfortable full size futon, cleanliness and good ventilation (for those of us who like fresh air) and air conditioning. Plus the place is just so darn cute! Connee, Bill and Yvette (property manger) were welcoming, accommodating and fun! They even turned us on to some local music that was fantastic. Enjoy your stay!"Guest: Susan C. Date of Stay: January 2015 Review Submitted: January 15, 2015View listing
