About the property

1 Bedroom, End Suite, Ground Floor

The Coral Baja is a full-service resort. The majority of units are operated by the Worldmark timeshare people. However, this is one of several privately held units. Therefore, we enjoy all the benefits of typical resort services. There is a 24 hr front desk along with an activity director available 12 hrs daily to book sightseeing, fishing, golf, atv tours and many other activities.

Coral Baja is one of the more popular resorts in San Jose Del Cabo. This is not like a typical condo where there are minimal services. In fact, there are many friendly staff and services on hand for support, security and amenities. There is an onsight activity desk and a car rental agent to assist with your needs.

Several championship golf courses are within just a few miles of the resort, situated along the corridor between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. There is a local 9-hole course that is less expensive and can be challenging to play. There is also a tennis court and a well manicured putting green right on the premises of Coral Baja.

Our unit was completely renovated in 2015, following the devastation caused by Hurricane Odile in September 2014, and has new appliances throughout including microwave, dishwasher, stove and oven, and a washer and dryer.

The main living area of this unit is tastefully decorated and quite spacious. Cable TV is available in both the living room and master bedroom and each is equipped with a flat screen HD Smart TV.

The master bedroom has a king-sized bed and there is a full-sized Murphy Bed in the main living area.

This is a ground level, end unit with lots of privacy, allowing you to sit and enjoy the ocean view, hot tub, the magnificent swimming pool and the ocean just a few metres beyond (it is just 39 paces to the beach).

Coral Baja resort has it's own filtered water system.

Many travellers worry about the safety of vacationing in Mexico. Whenever you travel in a foreign country, care and vigilance is important. Government travel advisories can be useful sources of information when it comes to learning about travel risks. The US State Department, one such source of this type of information, has pointed out that there are no travel warnings for Baja California (to access the US State Department travel advisory website go to ). In fact, the Los Cabos area is considered a safer place than many US metropolitan areas. The general consensus has been there is only one road in and out. There is no jungle and the area is sparsley populated. The Baja is mainly desert and mountains with the Sea of Cortez on one side and Pacific Ocean on the other.

I am a lawyer who lives and works in Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada. In 2010 I came to San Jose Del Cabo for the first time and fell in love with it. We purschased our unit at Coral Baja in 2013 and enjoy renting it to others when we are not using it ourselves.

Shelly Avram and Doug Lester purchased this condo in 2013

Why Shelly Avram and Doug Lester chose San José del Cabo

Our unit at Coral Baja is one of only 8 privately owned units in the complex of 3 buildings. We love it because it's a home away from home, yet it has all the amenities of a resort on the beach.

Beautiful resort!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Coral Baja! The staff is very friendly and helpful. We were never asked to listen to a timeshare presentation. I didn't see pushy salespeople anywhere. The condo was clean and sufficiently supplied. Anything we ran out of we were able to get at the front desk. There is a grocery store about 15 minutes walk that has everything and good prices, the only drawback is that you will pay $7 USD for a taxi back. It's too hard to walk back with bottled waters, sodas, etc. The taxi's are outrageously expensive, but the bus is cheap! We took the bus to Cabo (about 40 minutes) for 37 pesos each! It was safe and has decent A/C. The store on site from the hotel has good basic supplies and surprisingly affordable! Plus you can charge all those purchases to your room. The restaurant onsite is good and also has decent prices. Dominos pizza is right in the parking lot area too! Good for quick, late night dinners. As far as the resort goes I give it 4.5 stars. The pool is great, swim up bar is good and you can walk right down to the beach. The condo itself needs a new showerhead. I ended up showering in the lobby bathroom because I couldn't wash my hair in the room. The owners were responsive and asked me to call maintenance but they didn't fix the problem. The only other things are minor, I couldn't find measuring cups and additional bathroom hooks would be nice for towels. I would've also enjoyed a guest book to get ideas what other people found helpful or fun to do while staying here. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and we are sad to leave.

Clean modern unit, great location

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights in Shelly and Doug's unit. The Condo was great and owners were very responsive to all our questions and needs. The location was close to town and easy access to surfing and snorkeling beaches. We rented a car and were very glad we did. Although there were a few restaurants within walking distance, we enjoyed the freedom to explore the area by car. We drove up to Todos Santos one day and had a great time exploring the little town and Los Cerritos beach. It was nice to have the resort amenities and convenient access to the pool from the ground floor unit. We ate at the resort restaurant a couple times. The food was mediocre, but was nice to have the option onsite on those nights we didn't feel like going out. We cooked in the condo one night and found that it was well equipped with everything we needed. There were even some spices in the cupboard. We appreciated the beach towels and cooler that were provided. We would have liked to have an umbrella and beach chairs, but made do without since most beaches have the option to rent chairs. The bed's were very comfy. Our 11 year old daughter had plenty of room on the murphy bed in the living room. We had a great stay and would definitely recommend this unit!

We enjoyed our stay tremendously at this complex and unit. The complex is a timeshare property, but this unit is one of seven privately owned and still has total use of all amenities. We really liked it being an end unit on the first floor as it gave us easy access to the beach, pool, restaurants, etc. Being privately owned I believe it was stocked better than the timeshare units. The entire complex is beautifully maintained and great location on the beach in the San Jose area.

If you have a late day flight out and check out at 11AM the resort has a hospitality suite we were able to use to enjoy the grounds while waiting for our trip to the airport at 4PM.

If we return to San Jose this would be our first place we would try to stay.

Excellent! Everything just as shown in the description. Would definitely recommend.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful vacation at the Coral Baja, staying in Shelly and Doug's unit on the ground floor. Everything was great, very clean and well maintained. Staff were wonderful, looking after everything we needed. Weather was great a (27 c ever day). Highlights were watching the full moon rise over the ocean and going on great whale watching adventure where we were able to see at least 10 whales frolicking in the Pacific side of the Baha (they came up to our boat to show off I think!). No complaints, well equipped condo with everything you need and good maintenance of the grounds. The unit is only 20 steps from the pool and worked well for us as my husband is mobility challenged and uses an electric scooter to get around. The Beach is only a few steps down from the pool area and while we were there baby turtles were seen hatching in the sand during the full moon. Wonderful holiday and we will plan on coming again to the same location next year!

Better Than Expected

  • 5 of 5

While the description and pictures did match our experience. The overall experience was greater then anticipated. Everyone was very friendly and the staff worked hard at keeping the grounds maintained. During our visit the beach had red flags, indicating possible rip tides. My father swam almost everyday without a problem, although I would exercise extreme caution. The full moon rising over the water was more pleasant to watch then the sunrise. With the moon's reflection on the water it was quite magical. My wife and I walked into San Jose 4-5 times over a 10 day period and there were several restaurants and stores to visit. We used the bus system to return to the airport and without a lot of luggage it was easy.
