About judith buenrostro
I have been traveling to and enjoying Acapulco since I was a teen. I am Mexican and have travelled to all the beaches in Mexico but none of them rivals Acapulco for beauty. I have a long history with this villa and when the opportunity arose to buy it, I couldn't refuse.
judith buenrostro purchased this Villa in 2000
Why judith buenrostro chose Balcones Al Mar
Acapulco is no longer the small resort of the 50s and 60s, it has grown to a large bustling city but Villa Paraiso remains secluded and quiet with only the sound of the ocean. I go there for rest and relaxation. It is only 15 minutes from the hotel and tourist area so I can easily entertain guests with restaurants and nightlife. It is also only 15 minutes from Pie de la Cuesta where they can enjoy watersports in the lagoon, tour wildlife areas or eat at the boutique hotels and restaurants.
What makes this Villa unique
Visit and enjoy a Mexican resort and experience the real Mexico. This isn't your typical mexican resort with more Americans than Mexicans. Acapulco is now the beach destination of Mexicans and Europeans. If you are an American or European who wants to experience the real Mexico, this is your choice.
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
Fantastic views, great hosts, very relaxing!
We had an amazing time relaxing at this wonderful home. Anita made us delicious food and we would definitely recommend this property to anyone.
Thanks for coming to Villa Paraiso and we are happy that you enjoyed your stay. We hope you visit again.
I had a lot of fun in this property, Anita and her family where very nice to us but I didn't like that they kept insisting on us giving them tips I found that very rude, and since the lady that would clean the rooms left the person that was cleaning them sometimes wouldn't take out the trash or fill up the water container in the room and the shower was never cleaned in the 8 days I was there and there was a bit of miscommunication since apparently they charge by room and we had to all sleep together so we wouldn't have to pay more. It wasn't a bad experience but I've definitely had better experiences in other homes I've rented thru here before
If you are looking for PARADISE....Look NO further!!!
My partner and I of 15 years finally tied the knot, We could not be happier with the choice of vacation rentals for that celebration.
Villa Paraiso, in beautiful Acapulco, Mexico was a real treat. This Villa has it ALL.
The owners, Judith and Eduardo were amazing right from the "get go" They answered all of questions that we had before we booked. Making sure that we had safe, reliable, and air conditioned transportation from the airport to the villa (for a nominal fee) The driver was wonderful, making sure to point out all of the interesting things on the way.
When arriving to Villa Paraiso, we were immediately greated by smiling, friendly faces. These wonderful folks, Anita, Emilio and Norma would be our "Hosts" for the week. Given that our Spanish is very broken, Norma was a wonderful translator for us. We were shown the beautiful property and were given a choice of 6 bedrooms to choose from, all with AC. Of course they had already made the "Honeymoon Suite" up for us, Priceless!!
The first evening we enjoyed some beverages on the huge terrace as the sun went down. The views could not have been more perfect, watching the sun, listening to the waves crash below, beautiful calming music (of our choice, from their collection) being piped in all over, we knew we had found PARADISE.
Anita, the wonderful cook and dear lady, had dinner already for us the first night. Huge shrimp with a delicious rice dish, fresh Broccoli and green salad. HEAVEN
We would later find out that this was the "norm" for the week, we would be asked what we would like for breakfast and lunch, for the next day, each day. Emilio (Husband to Anita, Dad to Norma) would go to the markets each morning to get all of the fresh ingredients. We would pay daily based on our menu selections, which was nice, not having to plan the whole week in advance. Every meal was just as wonderful as the day before.
I think we agreed that this has to be one of the BEST panoramic views of the ocean in all of Acapulco, after all, you have 3 levels of the Villa all to yourself to enjoy it. Down one floor is a beautiful Palapa with great decor and comfy couch. This is where you find the relaxing Jacuzzi tub. HEAVEN
We were so thrilled at the OUTSTANDING service that we experienced not only by the wonderful staff, but the owners as well. We felt like we were leaving family, as we said our "Goodbye's" This truly is a very special place, with special people. We will be back soon.
It was great having you guys and we hope to see you again.
Beautiful, Amazing Place to Stay!!
My husband & I and our daughter & son-in-law enjoyed a wonderful week at this absolutely beautiful villa! Anita cooked us wonderful meals and Emilio quietly took care of the pool, shopping & grilling and everything else. We felt so wonderfully taken care of and enjoyed them very much! Our rooms were made up every day too. We had everything we could have wanted! We enjoyed the private beach below 3 of the days we were there. We were careful as the waves can be quite strong! It is quite a trek to climb back up but a quick rinse at the outdoor shower and then a dip in the pool revived us in a hurry.
Be prepared for heat and humidity! We used the air conditioning every night. We didn't use the hot tub except once as we preferred the pool but it is a beautiful view from there too. Actually, all three levels you can see and hear the ocean & we spent a lot of time watching the fisherman and birds with the binoculars provided. The Great Kiskadees are usually what we heard 1st thing in the morning and we also watched a cute family of squirrels in the trees.
We hope to return with friends in the future as this was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable vactions we have had! Thank you Eduardo, Judith, Anita & Emilio!!
Thanks Ruby, We really enjoy it when our guests were pleased with the villa and service. Thanks for taking the time to write a review, it is important to future guests.

Spacious, comfortable vacation home with great food and world-class view
We spent a summer weekend at Villa Paraiso and couldn't have been more delighted. Set in a secluded, secure, gated spot just a couple miles up the coast from Acapulco city center, the house is built into a hillside overlooking a quiet cove with stunning views of the bluffs, ocean and beach below. A safe, private path provides access to the nearly empty beach. Lots of exotic tropical birds, spectacular sunsets, and the occasional small fishing boat to watch from the enormous and well-appointed terraces (one covered, one open). An attractive, curved swimming pool and a jacuzzi are nice amenities. Plenty of ceiling fans to keep the air moving on hot summer days, and our bedroom was comfortably air-conditioned.
The staff of three people (cook, caretaker and housekeeper) are friendly and helpful, and were patient with my poor Spanish. We were without a car so we relied on them to call us safe, inexpensive taxis to take us into town, which always arrived on time exactly as promised. Anita's cooking is something to be savored (I'll tell ya, the woman can MAKE a quesadilla, and then there's her guacamole); and the local ingredients she uses (seafood in particular) are exquisite.
Hosts Judith and Eduardo happened to be in town the weekend we were there, and they were friendly and gracious with their hospitality throughout our stay. Eduardo even took part of his Saturday to show us around Acapulco, take us to see the famous cliff divers, and clue us into his favorite place to eat tamales.
As a side note, we arrived from Mexico City and departed Acapulco by bus. The nonstop Diamante service from bus line Estrella de Oro is highly recommended for comfort, safety, amenities, on-time performance, and cost.
All-in-all, highly recommended.
There is a fresh water lake 5 kms. away, great for water skiing, jet skis, birding and wildlife watching in the mangroves. Fishing and horseback riding available . You can rent a motor boat at one of the ski clubs and go visit the nearby islands and get a mud bath and practice all the water sports. A true nature lovers retreat.
