“A week in Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

We returned to San Pedro to celebrate our 20th anniversary. The town has certainly grown since 1994! We stayed in Unit 1B at Paradise Villas and loved it. The apartment was clean and the staff was incredibly helpful. The villas are close to grocery stores, banks, and of course, the beach. We were glad we chose to rent bicycles i/o a golf cart since it's so easy to get around town. We've decided we won't 20 years to visit the island again.

Room Tip: Get a second story oceanfront. The ocean breezes are fantastic!

Really enjoyed our stay, was exactly what we expected. Our ocean few was spectacular. Cleaning,yard and security staff were very friendly. Close walk to downtown,restaurants and water sports. Has a great pool and a very nice place to swim off the pier. Internet service was good. Look forward to staying there again.

We stayed in 23B, which is managed by Bill and Linda of "Tradewinds." Prior communication was excellent and a driver was sent to the water taxi pier to take us to our room. The staff is most informative and helpful, Bill who was on site for our stay even loaned me his rod and reel to fish off the pier, which is about 30 yards from the door to our room. The room, what can I say? We stayed in an upper with a balcony facing the ocean. The night breezes are heaven, the view is glorious, the room itself was clean and beautiful. They have security on sight from 1 P.M to 7 A.M. (couldn't say why as I felt very safe there). One of the staff harvested coconuts and cut them up with a machete, then handed them to guests who gathered for the show. We drank fresh coconut water and ate immature coconut flesh. He even let me cut one. They arranged to have our laundry washed and got us a discount on a golf cart rental. Anything in town is a reasonable walk, but if you want to explore get a golf cart. My wife is fussy about hotels and she was absolutely thrilled.

We just returned from a 10 day stay and dive package at Paradise Villas (Unit 21B) through Cap'n Ron Reef Adventures. First and foremost, hat's off to Ron for coordinating two units and the island hopper flights (Belize City - San Pedro) for three couples as well as dive packages for five of us. Timings and pre-trip info were banged on, Lelo was at the airport to pick us up even though we showed up an hour later than initially planned and Manuel quickly set us upon our arrival at Paradise Villas. The first evening was somewhat interesting in that we initially had problem with water but after politely asking the security guard what could be done about it, things quickly got resolved while we went out for dinner. The condo was clean and adequately furnished and equipped and the maid service was excellent. We found the complex to be quiet, well set-up (vegetation and pool) and ideally located (close proximity (walking distance) to restaurants, market, stores, dive shop and San Pedro Square) to accommodate our needs. In fact we did not rent golf carts and we enjoyed walking around San Pedro and even thumping it to the Palapa Bar

We spent the last three weeks at Paradise Villas in Unit 15A. We rented through Nellie's Property Management (http://www.nelliesproperty.com). We have been staying at Paradise Villas for 5+ years. It is a great place and location is within walking distance to almost any place you want to go in San Pedro. A cab ride or cart rental is fine for the days you want to explore. The grounds and pool here are wonderful. They even have very reasonable laundry service. We have found the employees of Nellie's very helpful and responsive. Nellie herself drives through the property each day and visits with the guests and owners. Unit 15 has recently been updated. New soundproof windows have been installed and have made a huge difference regarding the "street noise". The owners now have bikes available to use.

Before I start I just would like to mention that my wife and I are very well travelled, on the business and for leisure, we have visited 95 countries around the world. My wife has been registered with Tripadvisor for about two years now and writes reviews about places we visit and stay. We never had any bad review about places we stayed but I guess there is always a first time.
My wife and I stayed at Paradise Villas for 4 nights. The hotel location is good but the rooms were old, dated, and dark, not what you expect for $185 a night . The three air-condition units based on the neighbors property facing our bedroom window were constantly on and the noise level was unbearable! Being structural engineer myself I can state that this level of noise is below acceptable noise level for the accommodation and it is hazardous. My wife slept in the living room on the couch for 4 nights. We did complain to the management ( N Gomez) however no one came to see us to resolve the issue or at least apologize out of courtesy. Simply fixing the window frame which is broken will resolve the issue however the villa management preferred to completely ignore our complains, I guess due to the fact that that they were aware that we came from far away (20hrs flights) and will never be back again.
I would never stay here again nor would I recommend it. Belize is beautiful, so you can't go wrong there, but Paradise Villas the worse place we stayed ever just because of the staff & the management attitude.
