In April 2011 six of us including 2 kids stayed in a 2 bedroom condo at Paradise Villas. When we arrived at the airport Paul was waiting to greet us. The condos are a short drive from the airport at the other end of town. We were not in the hustle and bustle of town but close enough to walk every day for lunch or dinner. There is a supermarket (Richie's) right across the street to the right and a fruit stand directly across the street with amazing pineapples! We stayed in a upper unit with a garden view. The condo was nice and a great value for the price. It was clean and nicely decorated. There was maid service everyday which was nice. There were 6 of us in the 2 bedroom (this includes 2 small kids) and it was spacious enough. We didn't spend much time in the condo anyway though since we were more interested in outdoor activities. Paul was most helpful. He made arrangements for all of our activities which included fishing, snorkeling, golf cart rental, Hol Chan, and even laundry and use of the BBQ. You can't reach him by phone and there is no office but he is there every morning around 9am and pops in and out of the property all day. We never had any trouble finding him. He was truly helpful to us. Laundry service was great. After arranging with Paul I left my laundry outside early in the morning and got it back smelling fresh and clean the next morning. The condo complex is right on the water and when you walk out of the property you walk out onto a long dock. From the dock we saw many sting rays. You can swim off the dock but it was too deep for the kids. Immediately to the left of the dock is a small beach area which is perfect for small children. They enjoyed this beach everyday. Overall it was a great value and a great stay. I would come back and stay here again. Oh and at night they have fantastic street food in Central Park...delicious tacos within walking distance.
