Paradise Villas
Ranked #3 of 21 San Pedro B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 July 2017

Full disclosure - this is my fourth time staying at Paradise Villas. The location is ideal - walking distance either by beach or street to downtown, and to the grocery store. I always book one of the oceanfront units and the view from the front porch is worth far more than the nightly rate.

The units are furnished in the "Belizean" style with lots of hardwood throughout. The A/C is cold, the units are well-maintained and incredibly clean. The one-bedroom has a living/dining area with a small but fully-equipped kitchen and the bedroom has a king sized bed. Bedrooms are a bit tight, but have plenty of storage and an in-room safe. There is free in-unit wifi, which on this trip was fast and up to par. All units have a TV in the living room (though we never turned ours on), and some units have dvd players.

Nellie, whose company manages many of the units on the property, will make arrangements for airport pickup and drop off and can also arrange your flights from Belize airport to San Pedro. They go above an beyond to accommodate special requests, but note that their office is not on property - it's across the street.

The pool is not huge, but again, very clean and the people we met there on each visit - a mix of owners and renters - have been very friendly and seem more than willing to share local secrets and favorite locations. I will continue to stay here for clean, affordable accommodations and an atmosphere that perfectly reflects the chill Ambergris Caye vibe.

Room Tip: Oceanfront 24A - if you need an extra bedroom, unit 24B is upstairs and has a connecting door betwee...

I spent three lovely nights in the Paradise Villas through Nellies Property Management. I had condos 4 A and B, 15 A and B, and 14 A and B. They were all different and lovely but I really liked 4A and B as it was right by the pool and the beach.
The condos had great rooms, the futons were thick and comfy and the showers worked great. The location was fabulous too.
As a tip...you will need to purchase about 5 gallons of water when you check in. Use it to bush teeth, drink and make coffee. You will want it and the price is reasonable like 5 or 6 usd.
I would recommend the pier right out the gate of the condo for light snorkeling and swimming. For a tour we used the snorkeling company on the Palapas pier next door. For $45 usd we were able to take a boat 15 minutes out and snorkel and another 15 minutes to swim with sharks and Rays.
There are so many restaurants we went to via the 3 golf carts we rented (also $45 usd per day) but I found the very best snapper ceviche for $9 usd at Palapa's Bar and Grill. Also snorkel under the bar to see the beautiful fish.
Since it is a condo you can cook. The grocery store is steps away to the right and we purchased chips, rice, beans, juice, coffee, creamer, pasta, eggs and sausage. Wonderful!

Room Tip: Unit 3 or 4 looked like the best.

I write this review on the last night of a 6 day stay. This was our first visit to Belize and we couldn't be happier with our choice of accommodation.
We rode bikes all over the island and saw nothing which we would have preferred.
So why chose these villas/condos ?
1) Staff, are simply incredible, they couldn't be more helpful if they tried.
2) Setting, this is a small 48 room complex set in luscious gardens, with a really nice pool.
3) Location, from here you can walk to restaurants and bars up and down the beach.
4) Accommodation, the unit we had (7A) was spacious, well equipped, included stove, full size fridge and microwave. Bed was a little hard for our liking but that is all. These are older units but had everything we could wish for.
5) Value, can't be beaten in our opinion.

We will be booking again later this year.

Room Tip: best location on the island.

Very nice location close to everything. Unit was average but comfortable. Very nice pool, although I noticed that there is a bar set up for the pool, but it was not in use - so not sure if if maybe is used at other times of the year?

Room Tip: Their are lower level units and second level units.

We stayed in Unit 1A and could not have been more pleased. The condo was beautifully decorated and immaculate..not a single complaint !! The location of this unit is second to none..literally on the beach.but also only a few minutes walk to groceries and supplies and the piers for your excursions.The grounds are very well maintained and the flowers are gorgeous..The condo staff is constantly present both day and night and you feel very safe and secure. The housekeeping staff are great too ! The town of San Pedro is a hidden gem and the people are simply lovely. We rented a golf cart for our 8 day stay and explored which made the trip complete. We were there during Carnival and it was the best. Best vacation EVER !!
