We had been to the Villa Roja a few years ago, and were stunned by the amazing location of the Paraiso de Los Angeles.
So we were curious about the Villa Palapa which is quite a bit bigger, and brand new.
What is great is that the vast upper floor of the house is open to the outside, protected by a thatched roof made of dried palm leaves. This works like a natural air conditioning, which makes it very pleasantly cool to lounge in this large space, protected from the sun and heat, yet enjoying a stunning view onto the Pacific Ocean just below. A great inside - outside feeling!
The villa is very tastefully decorated and furnished. The large kitchen and living room area allows even a larger group to spend quality time together without being on top of each other. And the bedrooms on the lower floor lead towards an infinity pool that almost “floats” over the ocean.
The staff of the Paraiso was friendly and helpful.
I very much recommend staying here.
The place is absolutely magical: fantastic view, direct access from the bedroom to a large plunge pool and a delightful service by Edgar. Definitely the best place in the Zipolite area. We’ll be back next year!
