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.

Pésimo servicio

Desafortunadamente en este hotel, el personal no está capacitado para dar un buen servicio al cliente. Además están limitados en numero de empleados y esto hace que todo sea más tardado. Sólo manejan buffet y no a la carta (al menos en desayunos). Las instalaciones están muy descuidadas y la cama es de piedra, al igual que las almohadas. Sin duda no volvería a quedarme en ese "resort".
