Historical Traveler Reviews El Angel Azul B&B Inn La Paz
The only place to stay in La Paz
I Currently live in Cabo San Lucas so going to La Paz is always a treat as it allows me to go away for a few days and experience a bit of authentic Mexico. I would not think of staying anywhere else but Angel Azul. It is a wonderful little oasis in the historic district and is like walking into a true hacienda. The garden is gorgeous and maintained with dilegence and love. The breakfasts are outstanding and Esther is a delightful hostess. I enjoy being a bit off of the beach area as it tends to be a bit noisy. I highly recommend staying at Angel Azul for a taste of old fashioned Mexico.
Mexico is a cultural shift for Americans - but La Paz is peaceful, safe, and happy to have you. The same with El Angel Azul (The Blue Angel). This is more a quiet hotel than a house - you aren't in someone's upstair room - you are in your own room, with an incredible courtyard, wonderful decorating and flora, and terrific people on hand for help of any kind. Esther, owner and operator, is a fixture in this little city and knows everything you need to know. I usually want seashore - but this was better. We slept and woke with the gentle sounds of a village - the town is around you but you are isolated - the place is within a wall - like a cloister. The sun and the air are as though intended for this place - and the setting is like a movie set. I've done many hotels and many B&B's - never enjoyed a stay like this one. Grab the "suite" if you can - 2nd floor - the layout is like a penthouse apartment for kings. We're going back to La Paz just to stay in this place !
After a nightmarish flight ala Aero California (which was grounded before we left), we walked into the doors of el ángel azul, and time came to a stop. It was glorious. We felt at home right away. This place is about as well-run as anything you'd ever find in Mexico. Very clean, and they spoiled us rotten with good service, cheery smiles, and great food. Plus, we loved having the cat, dog, and the rabbit around. They were very sociable, and it made missing our own dogs easier. Esther has done amazing things with this place. The decor is fabulous, as you could slap a frame around any area and hang it on the wall. It's an easy walk into town, and Esther provides a list of all her favorite restaurants. She was also very helpful when our travel plans got put on hold for one more day because our airline was kaput. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing and delightful time in the charming town of La Paz.
El Angel Azul is a lovely surprise when you step through the door. The outside of the building belies the old-world charm of this distinctive B&B. Esther, the proprietor, is good at communicating to prospective visitors, welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful in recommending places to eat, things to do and see in LaPaz. The staff is efficient and courteous and the B&B is clean. Bottled water is provided. The place felt like home.
We just returned from our honeymoon and spent some time at this b&b in La Paz. The staff and especially the owner were absolutey lovely to us....the breakfasts were great and above all it was very clean and very peaceful!!
I read the review from Chicago. I don't understand what this person is talking about. I have been staying at El Angel Azul for five years have have always had a great stay. We are there at least twice a year. The towels are changed if you leave them on the floor like any hotel in the USA. There is no pressure to talk to other guests and the owner is very helpful. The place is secure, there is no fear of getting ripped off since all rooms are on the gound floor and all doors can be seen from the garden. The same staff have been working at the hotel for years. I have been there with camera equipment and computers (there is free Wifi). Never a worry. The owner is Swiss and the hotel runs like a Swiss watch. No other hotel in Mexico is this clean!
This B&B is overall acceptable. However, there are two critical respects that made us very uncomfortable.
After spending two days on the heartbreakingly and tearjerkingly gorgeous bus trip down the Baja Pennisula, the Angel Azul was like entering the actual gates of heaven. Covered with grime and exhausted, the cool respite of the interior courtyard put myself at peace and ready for a deep sleep.
El Angel Azul - Wish we were still there
Stayed there for two nights, and enjoyed the peaceful, beautiful setting almost as much as the wonderful hospitality. The rooms are tastefully decorated, and the courtyard serves as the perfect setting for the great breakfast in the morning and fresh margaritas in the evening.
While searching for a new spot to go to in Mexico since Playa del Carmen has become crass and commercialized, we came upon La Paz. While certainly not answering our needs for a holiday location, La Paz introduced us to El Angel Azul which is one of the most lovely B & Bs anywhere. Esther, the builder and proprietor arrived from Switzerland to turn the old jailhouse into a beautiful hostelery. We were fortunate to stay in the suite which had an incredibly beautiful terrace with a sexy outdoor shower. The rooms are comfortable, decorated with a variety of Mexican artifacts and antiques. The air-conditioning worked well, and the shower's hot water cleaned off our daily grime. The breakfasts were some of the best meals we ate in La Paz, and we were surrounded by a beautiful courtyard with the inn's resident dog, cats, and birds. It would had been perfect had El Angel Azul been closer to the water. Be aware that the Malecon is a "healthy" 10 minute walk and you will need a car to get to any decent beaches. This is an urban inn, but a beautiful one.
