The grounds and pool are nice. Security a nice touch also. The positives end there. The rooms are outdated at best, ugly at worst. I'm not picky, but I expected more for what we paid. For example, dishes didn't match, had to unplug microwave to use toaster, etc. my husband even felt a "shock" while cooking, probably due to poor wiring.
Property mgmt told us they'd pick us up at ferry-no one did. Our screen fell out on day 4 or 5 of 7 and we notified staff. No one fixed it. Most of all, the Internet didn't work consistently.
Overall, perfectly average place, overpriced. I wouldn't stay here again nor would I recommend it. Ambergris is beautiful, so you can't go wrong there, but Paradise Villas itself is nothing to write home about.
