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?

Most probably because you booked your unit under the 13 month guideline and all the units in the front buildings were taken, we have been to CABO 4 times, and our rule of thumb is 13 months to the day before check-in, much better chance of getting front building units. If that is an issue for your family, ask to be waitlisted for a front building unit based on the number of people in the unit. Good Luch

I've just booked Coral Baja for my family of 5 (teenage and up) over July 4th week and they told me we have a 2 bedroom in the back building, no ocean view. Question is, how do they know what room we're getting already? I thought they allocated your room when you arrived. And is there anything I can do to change it for an ocean view?
Thanks!

Just returned from our vacation there and the area has changed since last visited about 8 or 9 years ago. There is a WalMart, Applebee's, etc. in the area. Prices are higher at the restaurants and so we walked to the new Mega Mall from the resort and bought groceries. Overall we had a fun stay. G

Make sure you booked two days for a shuttle to the airport before you leave or else you'll have to take a taxi and that's $40 U.S.

Dennis,
Have not been on this forum for a bit, so has Cabo Bill posted recently?

We stayed at Coral Baja in September 2012. It was very hot and humid outside however the rooms were air conditioned and very comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay there. It is a beautiful resort.

For dining our favorite restaurant was Sardina Cantina just out front of the resort. The food was excellent, service was great and prices were very reasonable. Once we discovered this restaurant we went back every day. Don't miss this restaurant if you go to Coral Baja. The staff is very fun and efficient.

The only thing we would do different next time would be to not go during the summer months.

You can take a bus into Cabo to participate in water activities. And the bus ride is an exciting adventure. We were there last year and had a great trip. I was 73, my grandson 19 and we had a ball. Only drawback to the facility is that you can't use the beach, or ocean. To me, that's a drawback. But, we were by pool everyday and really enjoyed ourselves. And having the restaurant right there, plus Dominoes Pizza delivery, restaurant at top of hill on property, and across the street, offers plenty of places to eat if you don't want to cook!

[b][/b]We were there the first of January a few years back. It was warm the entire week, but the first few days were a bit cooler than the end of the week. It wasn't so cold that I needed long sleeves, but a t-shirt was very comfortable. It was always warm enough to swim during the day, but we hit the hot tub once the sun went down.

I took 5 seniors to Coral Baja for their senior trip. We had a wonderful time. We loved the pool, and there are several beach options you can drive to. I loved that it was outside of the craziness in Cabo. We did go into Cabo to go deep sea fishing, snorkeling, and to see the city. The management was wonderful and I would definitely go back to Coral Baja. My favorite resort so far. Some of our friends bought time shares in Cabo and have since sold them. The only problem we had was the rental van. It wasn't in great shape and the tires were low.

Hi, March 11 - 23 they were working on the upper floors of building 2. We were right above the walkway in that building so pretty central. All the resort facilities were operational, the water was off overnight a few times and there were shut offs during the day a few times for 1 to 2 hours per. We had notice most of the time. Our daughter was there in December and was in a different building from where the construction was going on at that time and had no issues whatsoever. Have fun!

ZN-------Can you say exactly where they are working in the resort? Is anything "not-usable". Do you know how long the project will last? We're heading down mid-next-month. It's not a deal breaker either way, just wondering. The Coral Baja is a great place!!- (that sort-of ties this post to "Resort Review"). Thanks---- the Coach

We were at CB for about our 15th visit this March and, for the first time, we were somewhat disappointed. The construction did partially spoil our vacation. I think it was the location of the unit we were in and how close it was to the major construction going on above (jackhammering). We have received an apology from the manager and I appreciate that the construction has to go on (our unit was finished and was lovely) but I think more care has to go into looking at what units are being booked in relation to where the construction is occuring. It was LOUD! Also, to be fair, we were warned by letter - we had already booked our flights by then however and I don't think that the letter was strongly worded enough. I have forwarded all these concerns to WM.

That being said, the staff are all fabulous, the pool area is beautiful and lots of fun, the beach is gorgeous and you can walk forever in either direction and see few people - we like the resort very much. We also love San Jose! We do pop into Cabo a couple of times when down there but much prefer San Jose. Easy walk for us but my parents took a cab - 50 pesos. We had a couple of excellent meals, the best one at Morgan's Encore but also really enjoyed the Mexican food at Mi Cocina. Had a blast watching hockey at Shooter's Sports Bar(the burger was pretty darn good and they have 10 peso beers and on Wednesday some not bad wine 3 glasses for 79 pesos!).

Will just have to go back I guess!

We spent a week in a studio March 20-27,2012. They were still undergoing renovation but it was still great. Beautiful view from the 5th floor balcony of the sunrise and waves breaking on the beach. Our room had been recently renovated and there were a couple small problems but nothing serious. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. I'll definitely go back.

Our experiences at Coral Baja have been totally different than DundeeMark's. We stayed a week last fall, then daughter and her hubby stayed just last weekend and couldn't stop raving about how they loved their 2-BR unit (same type we had). Most beaches in Cabo aren't swimmable -- that's why all the resorts (including WM) have great pool areas. Granted San Jose isn't a wild party town like CSL, but it does have some bars (sports and otherwise) for nightlife, and IMHO MUCH better restaurant selections in town(I agree, Mamma Mia's on-site at WM is a disaster). Manuel's Creative Cuisine at the Shoppes at Palmilla is one of the great restaurants to be found anywhere (I've dined at the best restaurants on the West Coast: Gary Danko, Canlis, Andina for example) -- not just my opinion. Check TripAdvisor reviews. Downtown San Jose is just a 50 peso cab ride, or walkable if you're halfway fit. Wonderful shops and art galleries to occupy several days. Coral Baja is one of our favorite WM resorts -- in more than 80 stays at 25 or so resorts.

I am just wanting to know if things got handled for you from the post directly after yours it seemed management wanted to make things right? Did that happen. Also was there construction happening while you were there looked like some other visitors had some consernes about this resort. I am considering going to Mexico later in 12 kind of makes me think twice thank you for your heads up it is my hope things were or are being made right for you best wishes Pasha

I'm sorry to say that this location was the worst place I have stayed since I joined Worldmark about 8 years ago. The place seemed run down. My room had broken air condition and we had to change rooks 3 times. We woke up every morning at 5:30am to the sound of the work bus parking in reverse bringing in the help. The restaurant was a complete joke. We went on the first day not known any better. Asked for water and was served vinegar. I'm not kidding....vinegar. I spent 24,000 credits for this dream vacation which was a waste. Our family ended up buying a time share closer to Cabo. That's another thing, be ready to spend time and money traveling to Cabo about 20-30 mins away. Where the Hotel is there is nothing. Can't swim on the beach. I could go on and on but I don't want to waste any more of mu time with this place. I write this to make other's aware to beware.

We Stayed in Jan. Our room should NEVER have been rented. They redid it AFTER our stay, but our stove didn't work for 2 days , roaches were in the kitchen and bath. Water damage to kitchen cabinets. this was our 3 visit and we were Shocked. fortunatley our guest had a refurbished room. Also it doesnt say anywhere that the only way to the bathroom in a 1 bdr is THROUGH the bdr. Teenagers had to go to the lobby at night.. I was used to the continental in the 2br units so assumned the same. ugh. BE SURE U GET A REFURBISHED UNIT

Hello, Had spoken with the management at CB last week and was told the construction was room renovations.... If so, how impactive is the work to enjoying a stay at CB? Was there a couple years ago in March and they had a huge plywood wall on the South side of the pool all the time we were there. Going back in March 2012, sure hope it isn't a repeat experience..............:})
