... our pilot told us he had flown apache helicopters in the armed forces for 14 years so and found this job quite relaxing as he wasn't being shot at. At least we had someone with experience at the controls. This trip was exhilarating. We flew over Lake Mead, the Hoover dam and in and out of the canyon. We landed at the bottom of the canyon and drank champagne and relished every moment of the experience. If you ever visit Vegas this ...
... want them to miss seeing it.
We jumped in a taxi down to Monte Carlo, after last night we didn't feel like sitting in the bus for half an hour or so.... I had a free entry voucher from MyVegas for the -5 bar so we only had to buy a couple drinks in there.. It was definitely a novelty and I'm not sure I'd really want to pay $17 pp for it but was fun to try, and of course we had to buy the photos as they make you leave your camera and phone in a locker ...
Managed a nice nights sleep, then had breakfast in the hotel. Had a little flutter on the one armed bandit then a walk down the Strip. Dinner was at Buddy V's Ristorante in our hotel and the pasta was really good. She Who Must Be Obeyed had chicken parmasan. Had to have a pudding there - lobster tail and cheesecake and some cannoli for ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Desert Paradise Resort Las Vegas
What a pleasant surprise. After staying at a dreary motel that was all that was available for the previous night. This was a 10. 2 large tv's. a full kitchen, with dishes and all amenities, a balcony to drink morning coffee, washer and dryer I didn't have to go home with dirty clothes from my trip, large bathroom and walk in closet. I felt like I was living in a nice condo, friendly staff and contiental breakfast. Only thing I wasn't happy about was 4 pm check in and 10 am check out. Would stay again, it's off the beat and path but I like that , don't like the traffic on the strip.
Fantastic, Relaxing Oasis
The review from Riverside, CA is spot on. The only reason I hesitate to give this 5 stars is that it may get too busy. Huge comfortable apartments are a very welcome resting place away from the Strip - perfect for families, with separate kitchen, dining area, two bathrooms and outdoor pool. By far the best accommodation we found in a two week tour of South West USA. Please keep us a room for our next visit !
Loved the Appartment
A wonderful week's holiday, after a long day visiting `The Strip' it was great to come back to peaceful and restful accommodation. Our appt. was spacious, well layed out and good decor. This resort we found ideal after a very tiring day out, the staff were very courteous and did all they could to assist and advise. As a time share member this is one of the best resorts that I have stayed at. Well done to all the staff at Desert Paradise Resort, hope to see you again some day.
Even though this place is a bit far from the strip, it is a wonderful place to stay. We have a 2 year old and it's so nice to have a full kitchen and a home like atmosphere. It is clean, spacious and very comfortable. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who needs a suite with a nice kitchen.
Nice offstrip property
Just returned from a week stay at Desert Paradise Resort. Nice resort, friendly staff. The property is a couple miles off the strip. Small pool, but nice (with hot tub) The resort did not have a shuttle to the strip, but they are working on one now. Would stay here again, especially with a shuttle.
Nice off-strip condo
We stayed in a nice 2 BR condo; however, it did have some faults that can easily be overcome. We stayed in 1st floor condo--next time, we will stay upstairs because we could hear when the upstairs clients got up, walked, showered, etc. The shower curtain was dirty--since no one came when requested nor was it corrected during midweek housekeeping, I turned the shower curtain inside out. I wonder if they have noticed that yet. Also, take laundry detergent as it is $1 a pkg if you buy what they have available.
Otherwise, it has a nice pool area, landscaping, and staff. The Orleans is great casino. Airport is close. Easy to get to the strip and I-15.
I would recommend this place if you use my hints. ;>)
Loved this family place!
Wonderful place to stay. Perfect for families. All the ammenities and good/easy to find location.
We stay here every time we come to Vegas!!!
My husband and I stay here everytime we come to Las Vegas. It is comfortable and quiet. The staff is pleasant and helpful and helped us decide upon some places for sightseeing. We were even given directions and maps. On our last visit, we had a spacious 2 bedroom and were joined by some friends a few days into our stay. We didn't feel cramped or crowded. There are TVs in every room and large closets in each bedroom. The washer and dryer makes packing a breeze because we didn't have to bring half as many clothes as we usually do. We didn't really do any cooking but the kitchen is nice for coffee in the morning or having snacks and quick breakfasts. However, there are enough dishes, utensils, glasses, pots and pans etc. to prepare a full meal every day if you wish to. The covered porch is wonderful for coffee in the morning or cocktails in the evening. It's just minutes from the strip and very close to some nice local casinos, and our favorite casino, The Orleans, where they have 50 cent roulette tables, is just around the corner. There are convenience stores, grocery stores and restaurants nearby. I'm glad we found this beautiful resort. Had we not stayed here, we would not have discovered more of Vegas than the strip.
Nice folk, bad bed, noisy
Staff was VERY nice. Pool & Gym were very nice. Size of accomidations large, we had 2 br which made coming home from strip pleasant. Plumbing, air conditioning and sound from other guests were VERY loud. The beds were horrid. If they spent some money on sound proofing between rooms and bought good quality mattresses, mounted head boards on wall instead of bed frame it would be much better. As it is, instead of 3 stars, the rooms get 1 star from us. Won't be back.
Best Kept Secret in Las Vegas
I hesitate to rate this place because then it will become so crowded I won't get in! This is a wonderful respite from the glitter and glitz of the Strip. This is truly the best-kept secret for quality accommodations in the Las Vegas area. Every year for the past four years we have used Desert Paradise Resort as our home base for the Interop Convention. "Home" base is a great name for this place! Quiet and relaxing, clean and well appointed, the Desert Paradise Resort is actually a collection of condominium timeshares that are rented as a hotel during the off-season. The two bedroom suites are the best accommodations, with a dining area, kitchen and laundry facilities. The small sheltered lanai is a real plus and a great place to have coffee and juice in the morning while preparing for a busy day at the Convention Center. It is not centrally located which is a definite plus to me. The rates are very reasonable and well worth the quality of accommodations and ambience to be found here. A MUST for the vacationing family and business traveler alike. ---Images Software, Inc.
