My husband and I stayed for a week, and I have only good things to say about it. The location is great, the rooms are lovely. The bathrooms are beautiful. Everything is kept spotlessly clean. There's a huge refrigerator in the rooms. The balconies have the most stunning view. What really made the trip though was Ben and Esther as... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 glorious nights! Ben and Esther could not have been more helpful from the minute we got there. Coming back from a day of diving to a freshly picked coconut while lounging on comfortable beach chairs staring at a gorgeous ocean could not be beat! The rooms were super comfortable with everything one... More

My brother and I spent a week staying at Casa Paraiso. We loved our time at Casa Paraiso and found Ben and Esther to be superb hosts. The website really doesn't do this small resort justice. The rooms are very comfortable with everything we could have wanted. This includes a two-burner stove, full size refrigerator, french press, purified water, wifi,... More

Casa Paraiso is located about 3KM up north of the center of Xcalak amd getting there is actually quite easy. The road is in very good condition all the way from Cancun to Xcalak. Only the last 3 KMs are a bit bumpy but I was told the street will be fixed soon and even if not the drive is... More

Spent a week at Casa Paraiso with a friend flyfishing the flats around Xcalak. Ben and Esther are just the most friendly, warm, helpful couple who run this place making you feel like their most special guests. From the moment we arrived at 2am in the morning to the moment we left, they were a delight. The authentic Mexican breakfast... More

We loved our stay with Ben & Esther! They were wonderful, gracious hosts who became friends quite easily. They have a passion for not only Casa Paraiso and their visitors but for the people of Xcalak. The room was clean and comfortable and the kitchen was sufficient for cooking small meals. We had lots of fun kayaking, snorkeling, and visiting... More
