El Angel Azul Hacienda
Ranked #4 of 26 La Paz B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 February 2014

I suppose like a lot of Americans, we hear scarey stories about Mexico.

In this case, dont give it a second thought. We felt so comfortable walking in LaPaz and certainly close to the El Angel and down to the waterfront.

Now for the B&B: So lovely. A renovated historic courtyard. Fun to explore with every nook and cranny having a different theme. Room was colorful and comfortable.

LOCATION Street parking was easy and safe. We drove only for excursions. All we needed in town - the Malecon, shops and many restaurants were easy walks. QUALITY A handful of rooms ring a courtyard - once a courthouse courtyard - that we found charming, inviting and very comfortable: palms, sunshine and shade, umbrellas, lawn chairs, a gurgling fountain, a seating alcove, desert plants, cobbles and bricks. Our room and others we checked had a pleasant Mexican décor. The furnishing/features included beds, tables, chair, closet/shelving, shower and toilet - all we needed. (No TV but yes, free WiFi). Room, linens were clean, beds comfortable. Our bed and room got a first pass by a maid during breakfast, and more attention later. A/C worked fine the few times we needed it. Unlimited drinking water a nice touch. Breakfast choices included various egg dishes, fruit and yogurt, and Swiss muesli. We enjoyed meeting other guests informally in the courtyard; all were pleasant. B&B owner Esther Amann provided helpful information during our stay and there were also guidebooks and other information available. VALUE We were happy with our stay and cost. NOTE: Coming change late summer 2014 - Ms. Amann will lower prices, enlarge rooms, provide anytime kitchen access and stop offering a served breakfast. Towards the end of our week’s stay, we would have liked this - being able to eat in rather than dining out all lunches and dinners.

Room Tip: We received good advice from Esther Amann, the owner.

We decided to spend a couple of days in La Paz before going on our whale-watching trip, and found El Angel Azul the perfect place to stay. Esther has converted an old courthouse into a very welcoming B&B. The rooms are tastefully decorated in a simple Mexican style and are clustered around a very pleasant courtyard where breakfast is served. Each room has an air conditioner and there is wifi access throughout. Our plane was late, so we didn't arrive until about 8:30 in the evening. However, we felt completely safe walking several blocks to a restaurant for dinner. La Paz is a very laid back city and everyone that we met was extremely friendly and helpful. Esther was very helpful with suggestions of things to do. We followed her advise and ate dinner at Nim one night. This is a new restaurant and the food was delicious.

Room Tip: We stayed in room number 9 that I think was one of the bigger ones.

We stayed here before and after a kayak expedition to Isla Espiritu Santa. The suite was lovely with a beautiful private patio. Breakfast was very good. We met fascinating travelers from around the world and the Malecon is a short walk away.

I've lived many years in Mexico city and travelled to many places within the country. I must say La Paz is the safest city I ever visited. People are relaxed, friendly and helpful. Even their driving is polite and safe, and there is no problem at all walking around at night. Within the city, Esther's B&B is a delightful cozy place full of details. The courtyard is beautifully decorated and you can hear the birds in the morning even though you are downtown. Esther knows the area very well and she is great help to plan your trip. Definetely top choice when visiting la paz! And if you want to swim with peaceful whale sharks, look up for Carey diving shop! top noch!

Thanks Esther for a wonderful stay in your B&B over Christmas. Your inn is a peaceful haven just a stone-throw away from the Malecon - La Paz' waterfront. We loved the comfortable room we stayed in; the delicious breakfast (generous and healthy - a great way to start the day!); and the lovely and tranquil courtyard where we could read under a tree or enjoy a cup of coffee! Charming, really!

We can only recommend El Angel Azul to anyone staying in La Paz or passing through as we did.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at El Angel Azul - The room was large, tastefully decorated, comfortable and clean. Esther and her local staff focus on ensuring that the BnB and its guests have minimal impact on Baja's fragile ecosystem by stressing the importance of sustainable tourism. Her menagerie of dogs who are well behaved and friendly (special mention for Yoda look alike Manja and enthusiastic puppy Chico) add to the homely feel. The structure which was originally built as the central court house for all of Baja California in the late 19th century, was tastefully restored by Esther over the last decade and has an eclectic decor of local and colonial furnishings. The BnB is close to the waterfront and restaurants. La Paz itself was a delightful sea side town where we felt safe (day or night) and can be used as a staging post for land or water based activities (kayaking, snorkling, diving, surfing, dirt / quad biking etc) in either the Sea of Cortez (Espiritu Sanctu island, Cabo Pulmo, Balandra etc) or the Pacific (Magdalena Bay etc). Esther who first came to Baja as a surfer, can recommend suitable sites and activities for people with varying interests and skill levels. The BnB also has an onsite bar, bookshop and clothing store! My wife and I enjoyed our time at el angel azul and would highly recommend it - all the very best to the entire team!

Room Tip: Contact Esther by email and she would suggest the perfect room for you
