“A calm oasis in a jewel of a city”
Reviewed 22 July 2012

My partner and I recently stayed at this fabulous place after 4 straight nights of primitive camping in Baja. It was the perfect respite from the elements. A warm welcome from the owner was followed by ice cold glasses of limeade. The owner also arranged for off street parking of our car (full of camping gear) for a small fee. The room was welcoming, peaceful, simple, tastefully decorated and cool, with excellent air conditioning and a very comfortable bed. The shower was refreshing, although it was interesting that there was no hot water (it is not provided in the summer months). I didn't need it, as La Paz was very hot indeed in July, but the lack of hot water in the summer should probably be more prominently advertised. The courtyard is an beautiful, quiet, colorful and shady place to hang out and unwind. The location of this B and B is wonderful, also, within short walking distance of La Paz's beautiful town square, cathedral and many shops and just a few blocks from the malecon. The summer breakfast of fresh fruit and yogurt was a delightful contrast to a lot of heavier Mexican food we had been eating on the trip. Esther, the owner, was friendly and helpful and the staff in general was quiet, efficient and very hospitable. The combination of the ambiance of this magical place and the delightful spirit of La Paz makes for wonderful memories.

Two (also female) friends and I just spent a truly wonderful week at this incredible hotel - one of my favourites I've ever stayed in (which is really saying something!).

The room was lovely, but the real jewel in the crown is the garden courtyard - what a beautiful spot! Hidden away from the world but packed full of beautiful things from it, it's its own little paradise; leafy trees and plants nestle next to little sculptures and artifacts, and nature is all around - both in the incredible hummingbirds that come and drink from the little fountain, just inches away from where we were eating breakfast, and in the sweet, gentle resident dogs, Luna and Manchi, and the cat, who aren't imposing, but will come and visit as you sit on a deck-chair and read. If we weren't so close to so many jaw-droppingly beautiful (and not busy) beaches, it would have been tempting to sit there all day!

Esther and the crew were all incredibly friendly and helpful. I felt completely at home.
It also feels wonderfully safe there, given that at night you're not only behind your own locked door, but also the impenetrable ones of the property. La Paz is a really easy-going, safe place to visit, but when you are ladies in a distant country, it's nice to have that extra feeling of safety. It felt like the benefits of staying in a big hotel, but without the bad taste in your mouth that can bring, and with the added bonus of feeling like you are in on one of the world's greatest secrets!

I will remember this spectacular hotel for years and really hope I can come back.

I truly recommend El Angel Azul as highly as is possible to! If you're thinking of going to the coast in Mexico, please consider La Paz and El Angel Azul - it really is a wonderful find.

The reasons we loved this place is quite long...let's start with how beautiful it is. Add that the owner, Esther, is wonderful as is all her staff. The fact that is women owned and all women employees was something that appealed to us. The other travellers that we met there were very nice and from all over the world. Mostly straight couples but this would be an ideal location for lesbians travelling. Okay, back to why we loved it...we stayed in the suite and was never so relaxed and comfortable just hanging out on our open sky deck that it was hard to leave and go to the Mericon (sp) in La Paz. We were just a few blocks away from the water front and a most beautiful location it was. We walked up and down several times during our stay and ALWAYS felt safe. We even passed a gay bar with rainbow flags waving outside on our way to and from the strip. Esther made excellent restaurant recommendations and even wrote down for us what we should order as we were at a disadvantage with limited Mexican Spanish knowledge. The breakfast served at El Angel Azul was scrumptious and healthy. They are very environmentally focused and support local farmers and merchants in their meals. There is even a small bar open in the afternoon. The courtyard was also beautiful and we relaxed there a few times as well while we took photos of a hummingbird that was busy each day we were there. Let me repeat...this is a completely safe place to be stay and the town of La Paz is very safe. We walked about until very late and felt completely comfortable. The people of La Paz are very warm and friendly.

Room Tip: We thought afterward that we should have looked at the regular rooms for this review but, alas, we d...

El Angel Azul was an ideal place for us to spend 4 nights getting to know the city. The location was ideal, and the owner, Esther, was readily available to help us with suggestions on activities and where to dine. We had a fabulous stay and felt very safe, comfortable, and at home in this bed & breakfast. We would definitely stay there again the next time we visit La Paz.

My wife and I spent a couple of nights here last week.
We found it to be a very beautiful inn with great service by Esther and her staff.

The location is a few blocks from the Malecon but after staying here we would definitely choose it again.
Esther is very helpful and friendly and Roxanna makes a terrific Damiana margarita . We also enjoyed our visits with the other guests .

This was our first trip to La Paz and hope to be back soon to visit El Angel Azul and the islands around La Paz for more whale watching and swimming with the sea lions

Angel Azul is a lovely place to stay in La Paz, Baja. Just two blocks beyond the Cathedral church on the square, Angel Azul has a friendly staff, a lovely interior courtyard that offers a nice respite from the hustle of the city, and a quiet home base to wander from. Easy walking distance from the waterfront and from other public transport. Better located than the B+B spots further down on the Malacon (waterfront) which are too noisy. Not many rooms and a homey feeling. Reservations recommended.

We spent 3 nights last February in El Angel Azul. This bed and breakfast is fabulous. The owner, Esther, restored an historic courhouse and she did it perfectly ! The rooms are lovely, comfortable and decorated with Mexican art and textiles. The super garden is peaceful and it's so pleasant to take breakfast there. This is a marvelous and quiet retreat in the center of La Paz. The service is very good and the owner will give you useful advices if needed. The perfect place to stay in La Paz which is a safe city.
