Location, location - and more

  • 5 of 5

Spent 9 nights here recently and can't fault the condo or the management.

The location worked well for me given that I had friends in La Costa condos about 15 minutes walk along the Malecon. The La Comer supermarket provided all the supplies I needed and Cynthia and CJ Deli just steps away became my local cafes - though I enjoyed some in the old town and on the hotel strip too.

Manager Susan was prompt to answer all questions by email, allow an early check-in, provide a return of the damage deposit. She also provided advice on local activity.

The kitchen is well-equipped and the fridge and microwave work well - very fast internet, great balcony for lunch, ceiling fans kept the condo cooler on the hot days.

And that beach! - wide and so long - gave me lots of exercise walking on the soft sand without too many peddlers.

The filtered water is a bonus - did not have to lug supplies of bottled water from the supermarket.

Thanks Sue and Susan for the experience!

Great inexpensive place to bask in the Mexican sun.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here . It's an easy walk to the large food and beverage store.Also convenient to catch to local bus to and from downtown San Jose. Our only complaint would be the loud music and entertainment later at night from the Royal De Cameron next door. Our condo was well equiped and spotless when we arrived.The pool was clean and refreshing and plenty of lounge chairs. The laundry was easy and close. We hope to book again next year..

Cosy beachside condo

  • 5 of 5

A great condo for 2 on a beautiful beach in San Jose del Cabo. The unit had a well equipped kitchen, lots of towels and beach chairs for guests' use. The pool and barbecue area were inviting and it was always easy to get a lounge and umbrella.

This upstairs unit was private and had a lovely ocean view. The proximity to La Comer grocery store and the bus route makes it a winner. Susan, the property manager, was very accommodating, arranging an early check in and late check out for us.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Viva is gated community with on-site security. We chose it based on location. It's right on the beach with a fantastic view of the ocean and just a couple of blocks from the grocery store - honest!!! The bus stop is a 5 minute walk away and buses are every 5 minutes up to about 8:30pm. We saved a couple of hundred dollars on taxis over the course of the month. There is daily maintenance to the gardens, pool and barbeque areas. The condo is clean, cosy and equipped with absolutely everything you need, including a vacuum cleaner. The tap water is filtered and tastes very nice. The WIFI connection was strong and there is a phone for local calls. I was apprehensive about the shared on-site laundry facility, but it worked out really well. There are miles of beach right on the doorstep and great restaurants within walking distance. Susan, the property manager is very professional and just a phone call away should you need anything. We really enjoyed our trip to Viva.

Trip to San Jose del Cabo

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at condo 5-5-15 to 5-19-15. Had a terrific time. Weather in the mid-80's. Condo has everything you need. Living room, full kitchen, utensils, bathroom, and balcony seating with table. TV (never watched), radio, Roku, and a DVD player. DVD player didn't work correctly and property manager Susan brought us a new one the next day. Thanks. Storage locker on balcony has things like two coolers, beach chairs, brooms, some floatation things for the pool, and other things I forget. Two BBQ's are out by the pool to use. We spent tons of time on the balcony. Great views of the interior grounds, pool area, and of course, the ocean so close.

We felt that the overall best thing was the location of the condo. Walk out of the complex up to the main drag street and catch the yellow school type buses (marked "Urbano" on the front) to anywhere in town. We paid 20 Pesos for two people each way. Mostly locals on those buses and I simply don't understand paying the higher price of taxis (maybe when the buses aren't running). Tell the driver where you basically want to go and you will get there. We actually spent more time walking all over town than we did with buses. Never saw or felt any dangerous conditions. The locals were very nice overall. The Mega store just a 5 minute walk is a HUGE plus. You can buy anything there you need (think a Costco or a Walmart). They have huge pastry, liquor, seafood, and meat sections among everything else. Even some restaurants right in the complex including a Starbucks. We went to the Mega very often.

We could see for miles up and down the beach and only ever saw two people out in the water during our two weeks. Apparently, the undertow is reported to be quite strong and potentially dangerous. Still great to see, sit near, and walk along.

The following are not criticisms, only suggestions to make things even better:

-Very little counter space in the bathroom. A small medicine cabinet or wall shelf would help.

-There is a hair dryer in the bathroom, but strangely no electrical outlet to use it. One could be installed.

-There is a overhead fan and wall A/C in the living room. Work great. Same in the bedroom. But the A/C unit in the bedroom basically just blows air. It really doesn't blow cold air. Suggest it be updated to a newer, quieter model.

-The phone book in the unit was from 2011. A new one is needed.

-Some kind of suction safety handhold could be installed in the shower.

We really had a great time. Hope to go back.
