The master suite (YOU'RE GONNA LOVE THIS BED) has a king sized bed while the living room has a pull-out queen sized sleeper sofa (new technology sofa has no springs-very comfortable).

This location on the Las Manaitas property allows you seclusion and quiet while still being able to access any of the larger pools and hot tubs. No smoking or pets please.

Why PENNY LAGRAVE chose Zona Hotelera

We fell in love with San Jose del Cabo (where the desert meets the sea) It is an artsy 200 years old town and Las Mananitas offered an upscale top of the line resort. We felt that this property located off the main highway (Caratera) would allow us a more restful vacation.

What makes this condo unique

We decided to buy in Las Mananitas rather than La Jolla or Mykonos because Las Mananitas is off the highway and much quieter. We were concerned by the noise caused by trucks negotiating the hills and curves in front of these other 2 resorts. Las Mananitas is 200 yards from the large food store La Comer while LaJolla and Mykonos are at least a 1/2 mile walk on broken and intermittent sidewalks. Altho' all 3 properties are oceanfront, Las Mananitas offered much more upscale surroundings and amenities. The grounds, pools, hot-tubs and gym are worth every penny of your vacation dollar.

Great Unit in a Great Property

  • 5 of 5

This condo unit was fully equipped with everything we needed for a two weeks stay. It is located in what we consider the best condo development in San Jose. Not only is shopping and transportation located close by, but the property never feels crowded and the residents are respectful of one another. It is also located away from the highway which is a significant noise benefit (please focus on the map when you are reviewing properties in San Jose). You can have a good vacation in San Jose without a car because the city and interurban bus to Cabo San Lucas are nearby, but if you need a car I recommend the Alamo agency near the Walmart because we found it cheaper than the rental agencies in the hotel zone.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from eight days in Penny’s unit. The condo is just as pictured. It is well-stocked and has everything you need. You cannot beat the location. You can absolutely walk everywhere or catch the bus right outside of the condo gates. The small pool is a few steps from the patio, which is great. The complex itself has several other large pools. All of them are terrific. The beach is wonderful and very walkable. I had the pleasure of seeing over 100 little sea turtles hatch one day when I was walking on the beach. Again, you can’t go wrong here. Penny is very responsive with questions, and so is her property management team. A great stay. We will be back.

Loved it!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I were looking for somewhere to relax and recharge, we wanted to lay out by the pool and enjoy the area ..... we found it in Las Mananitas. Beautiful quiet resort without the big Hotel feel. Would definitely stay there again. Thank you Penny for making our vacation a memorable and happy one.

Beautiful Property!

  • 4 of 5

I would first like to say the owner of this property is very responsive and accommodating. She was very easy to work with. The location of this property is awesome. It's in pretty easy walking distance to everything, including the grocery store. It would be nice to have a wagon or something to bring your groceries back to the condo when walking, but we made do. We walked everywhere except on a couple of occasions when we took a taxi. The property and grounds are beautiful. The pool that looks over the ocean is huge and was never crowded. As for the condo itself, you walk right out of the condo and you're by the small pool which we had all to ourselves the entire stay. The water was too cold for us to enjoy it, but it was nice to sit by it and have easy access to the condo. We would definitely rent here again and we love San Jose Del Cabo!

Nearest Airport
15 Miles
San Jose del Cabo
Car: not necessary

Las Mananitas is ideally located off the busy highway with a Walmart style grocery store within a 5 minute walk. We now have a 'swim with the dolphins' venue across the road - very cool, I went to check it out. The new marina is fabulous and well worth a full day to include the beach at Playalita and the new hotel there. The town of San Jose is charming and filled with attractive shops selling unique souvenirs. The church in the center of town is worth a visit.
