"Wow did we ever hit a home run with Casa Paraiso!!!
My wife, two grown kids and I, really felt special staying here.
The photo's are representative of the condo but don't really do it justice. It's a really wonderful place with a great layout. The balcony off the living room and master bedroom added a cool dimension. The roof top, oh the roof top...we spent so much time up there. We had our morning latte's there (we brought our own portable unit, but Starbuck's is 50 steps away). We had our afternoon cocktails there. We had our nightcap there. We thought the spiral staircase in the photo was sketchy, but it was fine and had no problem even when carrying dos cervezas.
The location was perfect. Right off 5th to go for a stroll and people watch. But also far enough off 5th that it was quite inside the condo. We could hear music from the bar next door when we were on the roof top but it was to our liking.
Coincidently, my daughter's friend and family were in Playa staying at a hotel, They came over and were blown away. They'll probably stay here next time they are in Playa.
The four of us did our PADI Open Water Diver certification with Scuba Playa. They are fantastic and so was our instructor Ace. We did the theory portion online, because really, who wants to be inside when in PLaya. We then did a dive with Bull Sharks and a day in Cozumel. Awesome!!!
We took Kris's suggestion and hired Marinoh as driver to/from the airport. He gave us a quick tour of places around the condo and suggested a few authentic Mexican restaurants. Los Aqua Chilies just off of 5th had really fresh seafood. Don Sirloin was a real hit too. We found restaurants off of 5th we typically 1/2 the price and same or better quality.
We rented a car for the day and went to Coba, Grand Cenote and Akumal to snorkel with the turtles. Long day but we'd do it again.
We would definitely come back here.
Rick, Sharon, Nolan & Margot"

"The villa is even more beautiful than the pictures portray. SUPER clean and spacious with excellent cleaning service throughout the week. Wonderful owners, always replied promptly to any questions and offered a lot of help with activities in the area. The neighbours were very welcoming and helpful and you never felt like a stranger. So much hospitality in their community of home owners! Was great to make meals when we wanted to or eat out at the large variety of restaurants nearby (try the beef from Super Carnes called Arrachera Nacional, incredible and an easy walk from the villa down to 1 Calle South and 20th Ave.) The kitchen has everything you will need to prepare meals and there were condiments to use which was nice to not have to buy much of that. We just replaced anything we used up. Felt very safe in Playacar and out on 5th Avenue which is about a 10-15 minute walk to the start. Good distance to the Mega grocery store and we walked there if we only wanted a few items otherwise took a taxi. Great to laze around the villa on the deck or in the pool, or go on an excursion. Xel-Ha was our favourite day trip, Tulum and Coba were amazing too. Lots of activities for a variety of age groups. The air conditioning was nice after a day in the hot sun. Overall a wonderful home away from home with the bonus of sun and beaches!"
