“OK but...”
Reviewed May 14, 2010

Hotel Perla is located on the malecon which is great or not. The Saturday & Sunday we were there the malecon was closed to traffic for a celebration so if you are driving & need to get out it is a hassle. Also parking was limited & cramped & getting out of the garage required maneuvering around support pillars & a chest type freezer while backing. Beds were firm but comfortable. There was only 1 electric outlet in the room & that was in the bathroom. Lighting was dim with only one small light between the beds & one over a desk/dresser. Wi-Fi was weak or non-existent in the room. Price is definitely based on location not on room amenities.

Being a frequent customer of another hotel in La Paz no longer available, I had to look for an alternative while staying in that city. I would say that the disappeared hotel wasnt 5 stars, but it was clean, and the staff was extremely courteous. They really knew how to make you feel at home. Having in mind the idea that being not far from the other hotel, La Perla would be my second best choice, I made reservations to spend one night there. Oh well... There was a lot to be desired: Beds didn't feel clean, the general aspect of the room assigned to me was filthy. It felt like staying on a cheap "poke'n Go" road motel, but this property was noisy at all times (not noise from the street, but staff talking in the corridors, and customers passing up and down as well). The hotel provided a small "refrigerator" mounted on a very precarious steel structure, not plugged (empty off course). What a concept of a mini bar!. The bathroom was filthy, and I could be on and on saying negative things about this hotel. Don't let yourself be fooled by the outside building. the rooms are not worth what they charge for it.

After a three night stay in the hotel I started getting unauthorized accruals in mexican pesos on my credit card.
It's the only place where I used my credit in Mexico.
I thought it was trustworthy...

The hotel is quite old, it needs a remodelation. It has a small pool, and the beach is just across the street. The restaurant is not good, the service there is bad and food is bad as well. If I had to go to La Paz again, it would be here if they do a little make up in the hotel, if not, I would stay in another one.

We stayed at La Perla for 3 nights. The hotel is very smart and well maintained, however, I did have to ask them to turn the hot water on! The staff are friendly and professional. The hotel also has it's own swimming pool and an external balcony area where you can enjoy beautiful views of La Paz bay and the malecon.
What spoiled the stay for us was the noise at night time. We did not get one full night of sleep, either people having party's or loud televisions, that is what caused us to look elsewhere.
The hotel is probably well suited to young party people!

Great location, but inevitably noisy, particularly since part of the hotel is actually a Norteno style nightclub. I was angry that the swimming pool was constantly occupied by children and families of the staff - often about 20 of them at a time. The staff themselves were friendly and helpful, but I woke up after the first evening covered in bed bug bites. Not pleasant!

Breakfast is said to be included, but this consists of a bread role, a bad coffee and a small glass of concentrated orange juice in a restaurant downstairs under separate ownership. The restaurant itself is poor and very expensive - far below Mexican standards.

We drove into La Paz on the afternoon of 12/30 and were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful waterfront. We didn't have a hotel reservation, but when we spotted the Hotel Perla smack in the middle of the malecon, we decided to run in and see if they had a room for myself, my husband and my teenage daughter. They did, they said politely, but only for one night because they were booked on New Year's Eve. Not a problem, as we were heading to Los Cabos the next day. It was about $90.

The hotel is a big, lively affair, and if you love to be in the middle of the action like we do, this is a great place to be. We aren't overly concerned about luxury when we're traveling thru an area because we're unlikely to spend much time in the room. Our room was very clean if somewhat spartan, but it had a TV to catch up with the news, great water pressure in the shower and perfectly fine beds. Bonus: lots happening out the window, from sea planes landing in the harbor to kids playing on the rooftop playground (you heard me, parents!). Our room looked across the roofs other rooms of the hotel, some of which seemed to have little cactus gardens alongside of them. The hotel is all tile and hard surfaces, so it can be a little noisy if you're in your room and people are coming into theirs at night, but it didn't bother us.

On the same floor and area as the playground, with a flight of steps leading up from the small pool, is a deck with chairs where you can hang out with a drink (very good margaritas) and watch the action below you on the street and across the street on the malcon. There's another small open-air deck on the second floor to also hang out, and a variety of us were happily doing so. Several groups of friends/families, both Mexican and Anglo, were there during this holiday time, and all seemed to head off to their own activities during the day and meet back up at night.

We took a long walk along the malecon before the sun set, and it's a lively scene. Vendors were selling cotton candy, one area had a big Christmas tree and other decorations, and gorgeous sculpture is sprinkled along it at intervals. Boats and a larger ship were anchored in the harbor. Lots of people strolling, skateboarding, jogging, so great people watching. Lots of shops on the non-water side of the main street too.

If breakfast was included with the room (as someone else on one of these posts said), we didn't realize it, so it would be good to check. The hotel has a big restaurant right on the sidewalk that seemed quite popular, tho we didnt eat there. In the morning, while the teenager slept in, we went to a cafe about a block away that had good coffee and pastries and 15 minutes of free internet so we could check the news (snowing in Rhode Island, always satisfying to know when you're looking at palm trees). A nicer cafe we stopped at later, though, was right around the corner in a pedesterian-only block that had pretty little tables with umbrellas.

After breakfast, we did a little shopping in some fun teen-pleasing stores that ran several blocks back from the malecon. You do get the impression that this is a real town that you're just visiting, not a tourist town, and we just loved it. In the afternoon we drove out to some of the beautiful beaches north of town (don't miss Bandalara, which everyone seemed quite pleased had just been saved from development; no facilities) and had lunch at one called Telecote, I think. It had several small, simple restaurants, open to the water, of which two were serving. Some local families were there for New Year's Eve Day lunch, very nice feeling. It would have been fun to be able to stay a couple of days more and do some swimming and take a tour out to Isla Spiritu Santa, which the beaches overlooked. Next time!
