Great Place 9/6/2010

I was at a wedding this weekend and the place is extraordinary and the only problem is that for my wedding day they are already booked. I highly recomend the venue and I had a great time. It is incredible that a place like this is in Houston more

WOW 9/6/2010

Best wedding ever 8/10/2010

When I was introduced to Paraiso Maravilla by my wedding cordinator, it was love at first sight. I knew immediately that my wedding was meant to be there hands down. \r \r I always dreamed of being married in a castle, but knew it was not possible, nut once I found Paraisso Maravilla it was possible. The service was impecable, first class..... I am looking forward to my ten year anniversary so I can celebrate there again...\r \r Definantely a place to create the wedding of your dreams. more

Most Romantic place in Houston 8/6/2010

I had no idea that a place like this existed in Houston, it looks like a Mediterranean castle and my first impression was all of the candles and the hand carved stone. I attended an open house hosted by a catering company and the new manager told me that they are under new ownership plus they are working on new innovations.\r In few words this is a very impressive place and you can see the dedication and pride of their staff.\r more

Truely A Paradise!!!! 8/4/2010

It is unfortunate that people would take so much time to write a bad review and that these are probably the same people that would send their food back at a resaurant just to get a free meal because they are used to trying to get everything for free. I attended an event there a few years back and feel in love with it and knew that one day I would have my wedding there. That day will be one day next year. I can not say enough about the outstanding attention the new manager is showering me with. She is pleasant, fun, professional, energetic but most importantly very accomodating towards all my wishes and desires. She is truely making my dream wedding a reality and that is a memory no amount of money can compromise. THANK YOU PARAISO! more

Best wedding venue in Houston hands down 8/4/2010

I still look back on my daughters wedding day and do not regret one decision. I loved Paraiso Maravilla as the location for both the wedding day and the reception. We were treated so kindly with professionalism and all our needs were attended, it was great.\r \r I highly recommend Paraiso Maravilla to anyone getting married or for any function. It is a beautiful place and the staff truly go above and beyond to exceed your expectations.\r more

Beautiful Venue 8/2/2010

Family member got married and I was very much part of wedding and decision making. From the point we walked into the venue to the date wedding took place, it was an amazing experience. We loved the place, booked it, made our payments on time, wedding took place, and everything went well. Our guests had very positive reactions as they waked into Paraiso. We wanted to reserve a venue that had little different look and feel than usual venues in Houston. And we are very thankful that we found one that exceeded our expectations. Not sure about other reviews but I was very proud of choosing Paraiso for the family wedding and will appreciate many many years to come. Paraiso is a Knot winner back to back and I am sure those brides were also very happy with their decisions in order to vote for the venue. I highly recommend for you to visit the venue yourself, I am sure you will be surprised with feelings you will experience the moment you walk in there. The best venue to get married in Texas. Go for it! Pros: Destination look and feel more

Pretty cheesy 8/1/2010

I am writing this OPINION from the point of view of a 2 time guest and and old day familiarity with the establishment. The place looks nice; however everything looks like it was stuccoed and slapped together by someone you would pick up at a Home Depot. In the men's room for instance, there is a giant pvc pipe that was stuccoed and painted. There are a lot of nooks and crannies that would make for some great wedding pictures however, but I guess for me, it felt more like a stage on a theater rather than actually believing the place was elegant. The location of this place also has gone down hill dramatically. In the 90's this was a very popular area - you had the after hours club next door, Sam's Boat and Daiquiri factor were popular, and Richmond was booming. It used to add to the appeal of this place. Now days Richmond is dead and this is just another venue and there is a ghetto strip club across the parking lot. The good news about that is that there is a parking lot dedicated for this place so you can avoid the ""other"" crowd. As for the ownership, I didn't know him other than a few encounters so I can't say whether the claims of racism here are true or not, but from what I remember of him, he was not very couth and didn't treat the vendors very nicely...in my opinion. It wouldn't surprise me that much to hear he doesn't treat the customers well either. Allegedly. Pros: it looks good in pictures Cons: Not too professional more

What a dissapointment! 7/5/2010

I would like to begin with a simple warning; don't waste your money here, looks are deceiving, please spend your special day elsewhere. I think the only thing that saved this night was the tireless running around of my new mother in law trying to get everything right! Which means that she was not having a good time! When we first booked this venue they promised us a beautiful new outdoor venue. Showing us the plans the owner boastfully stated that this was nothing but a couple of months of work, and that it would be done in time. We planned our entire wedding around this and were stunned to see that a week before the wedding, it was little more than a dirt lot with some cheap columns with re-bar sticking out all over the place. Like a true business man he stated that there was nothing in the contract that obligated him to help us out and we could basically swing for it. He avoided us like we were carriers of the plague right up to the end. What a guy... We had to move our wedding inside which meant that the tables and chairs for dinner had to be set up in a rush after the ceremony. He claimed that 250 people would fit no problem, done it before a million times....yea right! You want a comfortable wedding in there I am here to tell you, 150 MAX. The security guard they have there was clearly drunk all night long. The guy was a train wreck! He kept drunkenly walking into our pictures and then giving us attitude when we asked him to move!! Also, don't let your wedding run a minute over the time allowed or they tell you to GET OUT. They will be all over you like they are kicking out some college kids from a keg party. Highly unprofessional. I hope you are not planning an indoor wedding even if it rains! This weekend was a rainy one, with puddles of water all over the place. Indoors and out. And finally, why they decided to paint on the weekend is beyond me. Many of the walls were unpainted and/or freshly painted. I hope no ones dress was ruined but i am sure we will hear about that in the next few days. Delightfully charming until the contract is signed and the money is in hand, the owner will promise you the world. He will deliver nothing. Don't forget, this is just a venue and the owner doesn't really care what you want for your special day. Be sure to read the contract in full before you sign. Pros: Nothing Cons: You name it buddy! more

don't bother looking 6/22/2010

I tried to book my daughters wedding here. On the phone everything seemed fine but when we showed up they treated us poorly. Perhaps the other comments were right and they don't want to rent to hispanics. I don't know but we are looking elsewhere and advise you to do the same. Pros: nice decore Cons: staff is uncooperative more

not worth the money 4/26/2010

okay if you are having a small wedding (100), layout is choppy and awkward, poor visability, dancing and picture taking for group photos Pros: very pretty Cons: awkward seating arrangements, small space, poor visability more

You must remove your own garbage 4/26/2010

Steven made several rude and borderline raceist comments to our caterer and wedding planner one example was ""these little Mexican girls come in here and think they can afford this place they can't"" We paid him on time and in full. He also stated to our caterer ""if I see any alcohol I will shut it down"" well we are penticostal and we do not drink. Steven told us the venue would seat 250 for a wedding 160 is more the truth. It seems that it was just tell them anything and get the check. To top it all off I (the father of the Bride) had to take out the garbage. Please find ano9ther venue. Pros: Location is Beautiful Cons: Very unhelpfull more

May's Bridal Pictures 4/10/2010

May asked me to photograph her bridal session at Paraiso Maravilla. I was happy to be able to use the natural light coming in from the large windows and skylights to create these photos. Whenever I have brides from Houston I recommend Paraiso Maravilla! Pros: great staff, all-in-one venue, perfect for weddings more

My fantastic wedding... 4/8/2009

Paraiso was gorgeous and perfect and we will never forget our perfect wedding.... THANK YOU! I highly recommend Paraiso when you are planning your wedding! Pros: Beautiful, Wonderful Staff, STEPHEN is GREAT!!!!!!! Cons: nope. more

Did not meet simple expectations 2/7/2009

I was interested in having my wedding at Paraiso Maravilla. When I tried to reserve the date I wanted, it was already taken. I emailed Crystal to see about another date, I did not receive a reply so I decided to call her. She was very brief in saying that the other date was already taken but was not posted yet on the webcalender...I emailed her later about what dates were available in Dec. 2009, it has been about a week and I have not received an reply from her. Moreover, their webcalender still shows the date I had called about as being available. To them, it probably does not seem like my business will make them earn more profit but I find it very unethical if she is lying about the date and uncourtious not to reply to a simple question. more
