"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.
