About Alma Bair

Our family lives in Massachusetts. We have four boys and travel to the villa occasionally when the kids are off from school. We enjoy swimming, hiking, snorkeling, golfing and experimenting with local cuisines!

Alma Bair purchased this villa in 2006

Why Alma Bair chose Puerto Rico

We first rented this property for a year from the original owner after we had stayed at Hyatt for a family vacation and fell in love with area. When it came on the market we did a lot of research as to other areas and properties in PR and concluded that Dorado was the best vacation spot for our family!

What makes this villa unique

This Villa will feel like your private home and yet it offers you access to hotel quality amenities- the best of all worlds- lots of space - privacy and attentive service!

Dorado is centrally located on the Island. It is 18 miles from San Juan airport with easy access. Also you can take day trips to every corner of the Island in this location. The beach in front of our home is white sand and very calm- perfect for our kids. The location of Dorado is the best in terms of weather since it has the protection of the rain forest and not as rainy as some parts in the South.

Recently the Ritz purchased the old Hyatt Dorado Beach Resort and upgraded it to a 6 star property- this has attracted amazing restaurants and activities in the area. The Ritz has created a nature reserve on the property and developed an amazing waterpark, fitness center and upgraded the championship golf courses located minutes away from our home. Many of the resort amenities are available to our guests, including the spa, restaurants, golf, water sports and more!

Guestbook comments from the manager

I stayed at the villa with my wife for a few months. The atmosphere was amazing and the security was second to none. Having the pool right outside the back door and the beach only a 5 min walk away, was PERFECT!

Alma and her family answered all of our questions and concerns and our stay was one that we will never forget.

Magnificient! Above and beyond expectations!!

  • 5 of 5


We wanted to take a moment to thank you so very much for our absolutely wonderful, luxurious, relaxing vacation! The Villas were all magnificent and so convenient having family next door!! It was so nice to sit with family for coffee on our back terraces every morning, everything was so peaceful and comfy! We had such a great time whether it was just relaxing at the villa, pool, beach, or exploring out and about Dorado or going on excursions to the waterfall, hiking, caves etc. Everything was amazing especially the incredibly beautiful beaches!

So grateful for your hospitality and we WILL be coming back!!!

"Paradise Awaits"!

Thanks again!!

Very comfortable,relaxing & secluded. !!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was impressed with the warm welcome we received from Alex upon our arrival to the Villa. Location, layout & amenities were provided as promised. Villa was very inviting, clean & the decor very pleasant. Pictures on the website are just a small glimpse of what the actual visual impression of the Villa offers,...again very inviting!! Alma provide us with excellent customer service with a smile & highly recommended visiting the Dorado Beach Reserve & our family was treated like VIP's!! Kudos to Alma !! We enjoyed dining at the Peruvian restaurant Metropol & La Terrazza which both provided excellent food as well as customer service. !!! All in all our family would highly recommend spending a relaxing & very satisfying experience at Lakeside Villas. Definitely will return very soon !!😊

Nice property!

  • 5 of 5

Property was nice and clean, and big enough for our party of 4 adults and 4 kids. Had everything we needed. Quiet and safe with a beautiful beach steps away. Alex was always available to answer questions and offer suggestions on things to do. We spent a day at Batey Adventures doing the zip line tour and loved it. Over all, this property delivered on all their promises and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in Puerto Rico. We had a great time!

Ideal place to stay! More than accommodating! We will go back!

  • 4 of 5

This place was perfect! Close to the beach, in a high security neighborhood. Our private beach cove was often empty, a few fisherman here and there with scattered beacher-goers but you can take a walk on the beach alone at night, at least during the time we went which was February. The house was well stocked with cooking utensils and we had plenty of pillows and blankets. We had beach chairs and towels that we were allowed to use which was very helpful. The rental agency was very thorough and provided us with loads of literature and the contract covered every little detail. The only surprise was the multiple extra fees added at the end and a refundable security deposit which skyrocketed my total and was a shock but the security fee we are hoping to be returned shortly. Alma and Alex from Paradise Villa PR were very helpful and informative. They were willing to help us with any need we had.

Overall all we enjoyed the place and would come again. It is a wonderful location!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking a moment to write your review and for all your kind words about the villa, the location, our information and our services. We are delighted that you found the place PERFECT! The concern that was raised and obviously reduced the rating to a 4 is out of our control and relates to the way HOME AWAY writes up the quotes and the new booking fee that THEY charge guests for using the HA platform- not our fees. We detail out all our fees when we provide a a quote PRIOR to booking!! Most every rental requires a Security Deposit as standard and we are sorry that this came as a last minute surprise. It is included in every quote- but Home Away buries it at the end. Indeed the security deposit was refunded automatically already through Home Away about a week after the guest departure. We do appreciate the feedback and will bring this up to our account manager at Home Away. We hope to host you and your lovely family again in Paradise soon!! Sunny regards!! Alma

Fantastic Beach Villa !!

  • 5 of 5

The Lakeside Villa complex in Dorado, Puerto Rico is a fantastic location for a vacation. We rented a unit from Paradise Villas for my family... 3 elementary & middle school children + my parents. The unit we rented was great. The space was perfect to accommodate 7 people.... beautiful comfortable unit with very nice kitchen, bedrooms and patio with gorgeous views of the lake and pool.

The complex has a fantastic pool that our children used daily. The complex is also a 1 minute walk to the Dorado beach. We loved the Dorado beach... very clean sand, great waves and a rather private.

Paradise villas ownership group was a pleasure to work with... very easy and accommodating owner.
