Nice discount resort

On a family vacation I was forced to find a hotel room when we tried to get to many of us into a timeshare (with a seven month old). I found a room thru Orbitz at Club Paradiso (old Club Med) for $30 less per night than a more modern resort USD, with ocean view in the off-season (Feb.). The resort is at the far end of San Carlos (the road literally ends at the resort) and a car would be necessary if you plan to do anything but sit on the beach and eat at the resort (very good food at the hotel, quesadilla is amazing). I felt the location right on the beach and views made up for many of the draw backs. The resort is the former Club Med and 30 yrs old, showing its age. I spoke with the new director who told me it is a work in progress, resort is expansive. The rooms are small and old school, but clean (have that tropics wet smell). If you like to spend lots of time in your hotel room then the resort is not for you. It is a shower and sleep type of room (very hard beds did not bother me). The Soggy Peso Bar is right in-front of the resort and kite surfers use the area. You get a private lagoon, large swimming deck and pool, large open dining/drinking area with wi-fi, billards tables, ping pong, and water sports in season. The advertised health club was closed for repairs during my visit. Two bottles of water were replaced each day in the room (no separate purifiers on the sink). Staff was very friendly and entertained the family one night at dinner. In the off season we were the only diners and got the royal treatment. If fact, one night I was the only guest (180 rooms) and had a "private" resort during the week. Botton line, if you are a snobby traveler go else where...if you are going to San Carlos for the beach, ocean, activities, old school charm etc...then you will be fine with your stay and have saved some money. Oh, watch out for the horses which roam the streets at night to graze.

Dining tip: Not Applicable

If you want to do one upscale (still Mexico casual) meal while you stay in San Carlo go to La Conquista. A totally different meal than Bananas (which I like) and the rest. Great food, great presentation, great service, and less than half the cost of what you would pay for the same nuevo meal in the US. The Sat/Sun brunch at El Embarcadero (San Carlos Marina) is great and view does not hurt. For the open "street cafe" JJ's on Main strip was great.

Beautiful Beach/Terrible Rooms

The beach at the Paradiso Hotel was absolutely gorgeous..so if this is what you are looking for, stay here. The sunsets were spectacular. The water was very warm and the shells plentiful. That is where the gorgeous part ends. The rooms were extremely small, barely enough room to move around. There was no phone or internet access in the room. We found a scorpion and several cockroaches in the room. Maid service was sporadic. We signed up for a snorkeling excursion and got up very early to be on time and no one ever showed up to take us and once they did show up they wanted double the money to take us. Although we were staying for a long period, we were initially given the worst room possible..on the first floor right in front of the childrens playground. We ended up switching to a room on the second floor. Since this was once a Club Med, all of the rooms are identical so there is no way to upgrade your room. We will definately return to San Carlos but will choose another place to stay.

Didn't expect a lot. Expectations were met.

The Paridiso Resort did not disappoint. The main attraction for this resort is the great location on the Sea of Cortez. The views from the hotel grounds are stunning. As for the room, the hot water did not work. In fact for one day we had no running water at all. The hotel did not provide any bottled water for the room which most U.S. tourists would consider a necessity in Mexico. The room was tidy but sparsely furnished. The restaurant however was above average and the prices were reasonable for a resort.

Very Basic Accomodations

The beds were rock hard. The A/C leaked water all over the concrete floors. I called maintenance and didn't get anyone to come until the water was running out the door. Never again.
