While they each have their own attributes, Paraiso Escondido is in our opinion, the best! Getting here. OK, if you are visiting at either Ixtapa or Zihuatanejo you... More

My family (wife and daughters 8 and 12) spend the day here in late March 2017. The kids enjoyed feeding the deer and rabbits which frequent the restaurant's periphery. The hotel has access to beaches on either side of the island with one having good snorkeling and one having better swimming. We spent the day under a palapa on the... More

Paraiso restaurant serves the 2 beaches on Isla Ixtapa - Playa Varadero (swimming) and Playa Coral (snorkelling). There's a 2 minute walk to cross the island at this location. We spent the day on the Playa Varadero side, on a nice lounger, under a palapa. We ate at a table, facing the ocean which is relatively calm here. The wind... More

There are restaurants side by side on Isla Ixtapa but I'm pretty sure this is the one that cooked the fish we caught and delivered it in style. It was as close to perfect a setting as you can ask for. The service was courteous and considerate and the food tasted so good. Is it just because of the setting... More

Take a taxi or bus to Playa Linda & catch the panga to Varadera beach on Isla Ixtapa a few hundred yards from the shore. Sandy beaches & perfect swimming. Relax at this splendid beach restaurant. Cold wine, beers & refrescos together with well cooked fish, shrimp & salads. Friendly service at a great price. Professional massage on site. Not... More

There are several beaches on Isla Ixtapa. We traipsed around to look at all of them and decided to settle in for the day on Varadero Beach as it seemed the most tranquil. We weren't there to snorkel or ride banana boats or jet skis so this beach is the quietest. We selected Restaurant Paraiso Escondido and couldn't have been... More
