About Orlando Hidalgo
We are retired from the hospitality industry and owned a Wellness Spa in Cuernavaca, Mexico. Choosing our vacation home in Acapulco provides us the opprtunity to get away for the weekends while not having to travel far from home, as Acapulco is only 2 hours drive from Cuernavaca.
Orlando Hidalgo purchased this Villa in 2000
Why Orlando Hidalgo chose La Condesa
Our dream was to have a vacation home in Acapulco where we could get away from it all and enjoy the afternoon sunsets overlooking Acapulco Bay. We looked at over 30 properties before deciding to purchase 'Villa Paraiso' which means 'Paradise Villa' in Spanish. The Villa is ideally located within minutes of restaurants, shops, nightlife and the best beaches of Acapulco, yet removed from the hustle and bustle of the city. Every room has a view of the bay which was one of the primary requirements when looking for our 'litte bit of paradise'.
What makes this Villa unique
Morning coffee on the terrace and feeling the cool ocean breezes, afternoon cocktails while watching the sunset paint the Acapulco bay skyline and relaxing evenings soaking in the outdoor jacuzzi off of the master bedroom terrace while seeing the Acapulco nightlife take place below are just a few of the reasons Villa Paraiso is the ideal vacation home.
100% refund if cancelled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Not for partial handicap
Villa has about a 100 steps with no rail support. Was not mentioned in their offering. We were expecting a washer and dryer and when asked where it is I was told you don't want to know. Felt the time we stayed the owners were watching our every move. Way more than a short walk to the Costera high way.
The view from here was specular as advertised. Great villa if you are in good physical shape but for old people like us it was not pleasant. We booked 10 nights but due to restrictions in and out of Villa we stayed only three. No mention of even a partial refund, will not return even if healthy.
Tim, we are truly sorry our Villa did not accommodate your needs. Unfortunately, in Acapulco, most properties with a panoramic view of the Bay are usually situated In the hillsides and therefore there are steps, 25 to be exact, NOT 100.
I believe it is also correct to mention that your wife had recently had major knee surgery on both knees and had difficulty waking, even a few steps.
I don’t understand why you stated that you felt you were constantly being watched, as we did not see you after your arrival and check in until the moment you advised you were leaving and I met you at the Villa to receive the keys.
I did not offer you a partial refund because you had already cancelled your reservation previously for your stay In January (High Season) with less than 30 days notice. Although my cancellation policy dictated no refund ( as you cancelled less than 30 days prior to your scheduled arrival date), I gave you a credit of 50% of your payment towards the new reservation . Due to your wife’s mobility limitations you were now reducing your stay during Easter Week which is the busiest rental period of the year. I trust you can understand my position as well.
Orlando has a very nice home with a great view of the bay. The house was fully stocked, spacious and very clean! Orlando was very attentive to our needs and always available via text to handle issues and offer advice on things to do and places to visit. We enjoyed our time here and would certainly stay again the next time we are in Acapulco!
We strive to keep our home in top conditions offering amenities such as a fully stocked kitchen, abundant quality linens and towels, full HD Cable TV and WiFi Internet in order to assure our guests an exceptional vacation stay.
Best view in Acapulco
This was our second trip to Acapulco in the past five years. The city always feels safe and we walked everywhere. The villa is located near the top of the most exclusive hill in Acapulco. It is a short walk down the hill to the main strip along the famous beach to the best restaurants and hotels. Although my wife and I enjoyed walking up the hill back to the villa many times we preferred taking a taxi which cost 30 pesos or roughly $2.00. Once at the top of the hill, behind the walls surrounding the villa, it is absolutely quiet. The villa is clean and every window has a more spectacular view than the next. Two sizable bedrooms, two floors, three bathrooms, two pools, hot tub, private enclosed parking place with electric garage door, fully equipped kitchen all directly overlooking the bay with a breathtaking unobstructed view. None of the attached pictures does the villa justice. We felt like we were staying in the lap of luxury far exceeding our expectations. The owners were there to welcome us and were always available to answer any questions.
Centrally located in the heart of Acapulco Bay, Villa Paraiso offers an array of dining and nightlife options within 5 minutes as well as shopping and of course, the best beaches for sun and surf.
