Have you stayed at Coral Baja? Here's your chance to tell other owners what it's really like. How big is the pool? How hot is the hot tub? What do you wish you had known before you left home?

Fishing in Cabo? This company will pick you and the family up from the airport, cold drinks included. Fishing was great, clean and safe. I have already booked another trip in October 2018. 52 624 217 3230 their number, Titos Sportfishing Zepeda. I am a platinum owner and don't work for this guy, just sharing. Also, they will clean your fish and give you options where to get it cooked to take it back to the condo. Any questions email me at cliffy94@yahoo.com. I don't check this forum often. Titos is also on Facebook.

Just returned from a 4 night stay at Coral Baja..Thought I would post since I couldn't find any recent reviews when I was looking for information. We had an awesome stay, we were a little worried as our arrival date was the same day hurricane Bud was supposes to hit but luckily it turned into a tropical storm and the weather was perfect. Was a little Leary of traveling to Cabo after hearing about all the stuff going on in the last year but felt very safe and all of the resorts keep good track of who is coming and going. We used the resort shuttle which we booked in advance at $35pp roundtrip our driver was great both too and from. We did not rent a car, most of the excursions include hotel pickup but we did take a taxi into town a couple times which was about $40 each way so might reconsider next time. We ate at Mamma Mia's a couple times twice for breakfast which is very reasonable and once for dinner both were very good. We also ate at Sardina Cantina which is located next to the back building and had an amazing dinner..The filet mignon is great and so is the chicken tortilla soup. We booked our excursions thru the activities desk who were very helpful. We did swimming with the dolphins with Dolphin Discovery, Atv riding with Wild Canyon, sunset dinner cruise with Pezgato on the Cabo Mar and Parasailing with Baja watersports all were tons of fun and highly recommended. Now that we have our passports we are already planning a return trip for the Spring..If you have any questions or would be pic feel free to contact me...

Stayed at CB several times in various units both before and after the Hurricane in 2014. Too bad it took the hurricane to upgrade the units and complex but now it is a solid 4+ star resort. Back building is close to the highway and too noisy for me. I spend a lot of time in Cabo and now own a condo just down the road from CB. Comments re public transortation bus and shuttle are spot on. Taxis are $$$ because its a monopoly. Be VERY wary about renting cars in MX since the rate yiou see on line is so cheap BUT when you get to the kiosk at the airport the mandatory (predatory) insurance kicks in at $35 to $70 and more per day.
PLEASE dont swim at the CB beach. Several people have drowned. The last 2 hurricanes have made it more dangerous than ever. Palmilla beach is swimmable cove (2 mi from CB).
A huge new market opened called Chaudary(?) that is at the corner of the Coast Hwy 1 and airport toll road. Fabulous US and Canada quality groceries and everything and excellent prices.

We travel to Coral Baja every year in October and just returned. As always the staff (family) is amazing. The grounds and rooms are clean and up to date. As always the grounds and pool are kept immaculate. One very nice surprise was the food at Mama Mia... Thls is the first visit where we found the food very good. In the past the food had been at the level of a Dennie’s or similar but it appears there might be a new chief who has an updated flair.

Suggestions to management for future upgrades.

We absolutely need better WI FI in the complex. The spreed is very poor where my phone upload spreed is faster.
The second thing would be updated TV with screen mirror.

Heading to the WM Coral Baja resort in early May and was checking past owner comments. It was a little concerning to read about apparent drug turf wars in the area from a couple months ago. Any comments from current or recent guests on this?

Resort management needs to add more pool chairs! There is plenty of room for more, and it may alleviate the problem of chair-snatchers who are out as early as 6:30 AM to claim not just one chair, but I have seen as many as 5 chairs draped with towels then the person goes back inside the building for hours. Security Team has been hit-and-miss on coming by very early and picking up all unaccompanied towels, shoes, magazines, etc and taking them to the front office. (It is fun to watch the surprised faces of the folks when they stroll out to "their" chairs at 9:30 or 10 and find out what happened!)

This could be helped by adding a couple dozen more chairs. (And NOT the horrid white plastic ones like the ones at the beach or by the hot tub. Those are IMPOSSIBLE to get comfortable on!)

Does Coral Baja charge a separate Resort Fee that covers, e.g., Wi-Fi and other amenities? I've paid $30 per day at some resorts in Mexico.

Has anyone stayed in the "back building"? I want to book a 2 bedroom, but seem to miss the window each time. However there is availability in the the 'back building' (I think building 2?) What are the problems/issues?

I can't believe Worldmark doesn't have designated smoking areas. There is no reason why owners have to breathe second hand smoke. There should not be smoking allowed in units or on decks or in common areas such as pools. We own two other time shares and both have designated smoking areas away from common areas.

The new penthouse is amazing! Of course, I never saw it before so I have nothing to compare to, but I will try to attach pictures. We are staying in the 2 bedroom penthouse. Both bedrooms have queen beds (murphy bed in the living room is double bed) so unfortunately no twins like the regular 2 bedrooms.

The living room has an extra sitting area and the master bedroom opens onto the balcony so you have a double balcony area with a table, chairs, and BBQ. The spiral stairs lead to a private rooftop area with a hot tub and table to eat at.

The beach in the video that we are taking selfies at laugh is Palmilla Beach just a few minutes by car from the resort. The beach front area at the resort is not recommended by staff for swimming. However, I have seen plenty of people out there swimming every time we have been there. In fact, I have seen really good surfers surfing the waves directly in front of the resort. They were pretty good at surfing and put on a great show. I imagine they are really good swimmers too. I'm not the best swimmer so I stay away, but we have gone in up to our knees or so. If you walk up the beach line towards San Jose area there is a spot that locals frequent and they are in the water having a blast daily. In the opposite direction there are several surf spots and beaches to choose from in front of other resorts.

Hope this helps

Have fun!

My wife and I have been to Coral Baja several times. If you are a good swimmer and perhaps swim with another strong swimmer, are familiar with rip currents and huge crashing waves with strong under tow then the beach is swimmable. The water may be waist deep and when a wave comes in the water quickly rises to above hands held high depth. I consider myself to be a good swimmer very familiar with that type of wave action and even I choose not to enter at times as the pounding of the waves may be too much for a comfortable fun time. I have swam even with the red flags out though and not be been told to exit or bothered by resort staff. There is no life guard. My wife never even tries.

I always rent a car and if the beach thing is the plan you can come and go as you please. Enjoy the trip.

I sure hope that when they reopen that they do not allow smokers in the pool, last time I was there I was unable to swim, as a group were in the pool with drinks in one hand, cigarette in the other. This is 2015 hopefully Worldmark can up there standards ...

The beach is not swimmable, I have seen people in it, but I have also seen one person nearly drown. He was pulled out into the ocean on the current. We rented a car for a day and went to one of the swimmable beaches. I don't recall the name of the one we went to, but it wasn't far.

It's a nice video, thank you. No one is writing about the beach next to the resort...but according to your video, I was pleased to see that people are actually swimming in the ocean. I just called the resort and was told that they don't recommend swimming by the hotel due to high current, said that they recommend a public beach ~10 minutes from hotel by bus or taxi instead. We never been to Cabos & were planning to book for October, but not interested in sitting in the poor all day or waist time traveling back & forth in the taxi/bus to the public beach... Could someone, please, comment if the beach by the hotel is swim-able or not?

Wow, that rain must been something to see! We were at Coral Baja a month ago and loved the pool area too! And like you we did have problems with smokers too. We actually had to be moved because the people in the the next room to us smoked cigars on their balcony and the smoke drifted right over to our side. Very unpleasant! And at the pool - can't see why they don't designate a smoking area. There were small children sitting right next to smokers.

Hi ya all! We are in Coral Baja right now enjoying the sunny beautiful weather. We have had four days of hot sunny weather. On Sat 21st June a storm front moved in and it took it's time getting here. Sunday was still beautiful and so was this morning. By 12:30 this afternoon the storm arrived dumped many inches of rain on Cabo and Los Cabos. The mall in Cabo was trying to sandbag the front entrance so that all of the rivers of water off of the streets would not flood the mall entrance. The taxi ride back to Coral Baja from Cabo was interesting with all of the standing water and rivers running down the roads. It was literally flash flooding at it's best. It was kind of funny to watch everyone RUN from the rain they don't normally see. Then by 1:30 the clouds were clearing and we enjoyed another 3 hours in the sun by the pool. They played water polo and Texas Hold'em in the pool this afternoon.
We love the pool...it is in a cross shape with a hot tub on one end, a volleyball net on the second end, a kiddie pool on the third end and the Tiki Bar on the fourth end. With a big center area to gather, swim, play or float in. Love it!!!

We go home in two days and it has been a great experience and relaxing!

Our only negative is...I wish they wouldn't let people smoke around the pool because us NON-smokers can't breathe when it blows in our faces. To top it off I'm allergic to cigarette smoke, yes even second hand smoke. My throat swells and I cough uncontrollably.
smile
