[b][/b]The water at the resort is filtered. We used it for brushing out teeth and general uses, but we drank bottled water to drink. We thought the bottled water tasted better.

We are going to Coral Baja for the first time this May and my question is about the water. What are your suggestions for using water in the room for example brushing your teeth, making coffee, etc.

Never tried Netflix, but fine for surfing and email. May depend on where in the resort you are.

Does the resort have the standard internet/WiFi options as other worldmark resorts?

Can't find anything about WiFi in the resort description or in the forum.

Thanks!

On the main Forums page at the very bottom is a WM4M Rental Board forum. People post the credits they have to rent or reservations they can't use there.

There are two and three bedroom penthouses. the two bedroom penthouses have two bathrooms and usually a kind in the master and twin beds in the second which can be joined into a king bed upon request. The three bedroom penthouses have king in master, Queen bed in 2nd bedroom, and twins in the third and three bathrooms. Very spacious with lots of outdoor deck space as well. All of the penthouses have hot tubs on the deck and some in building one have rooftop decks that are awesome. I hope that helps. If you need any other info send me a message. Cheers, Shelley

Hi there!

I will be visiting Coral Baja in Feb. 2014 and would like to know if anyone has been to a great spa either in small town SJC or fairly near the resort or at one of the 'posh' hotels? If so, was the cost reasonable, how was the ambience and any other relevant information will be greatly appreciated!! Going back for the 3rd time and absolutely LOVE Cabo!! Thanks so much!!
TJ

I was wondering if someone out there can describe the penthouse unit(s) at Coral Baja. How many bathrooms, bedrooms and beds? We were thinking of traveling with another family and the information would help.

Thank you!!

It was one of the most peaceful vacations we have experienced. The biggest noise is the waves and to us that was priceless.

A Top 10 Vacation Experience in our book and we are travelers!

We have been World Mark owners since 2007 and used many facilities to include the Oregon Coast, Lake of the Ozarks, Colorado and Utah. We have never been disappointed and our recent trip to Coral Baja was no exception. Attentive staff, beautiful facility, nice amenities, and great location if you are looking for a relaxing vacation. We had 3 guest join us for this trip including two college students. From the "old folks 50's-60's" to the 20 somethings we all had a great time. My husband and I have been to Cancun and I spent 10 days at a high end spa just out of Mexico City ... both of us will be returning to this resort next year our schedule permitting.

A few attractions and restaurants to consider during your stay:
*Mama Mia's is very good and there are other options close by to include
*El Herrando (a bit pricy but worth the price)in downtown San Jose del Cabo (a short cab ride away)
*Sardina Cantina reasonably priced with great food and friendly service. Just up the hill from the resort. We ate there twice for breakfast. If you are a football fan they have the games on a big screen TV on Sunday.
*Jazmin (can't swear by this spelling but this was recommended by the staff @ the resort). If you are looking for authentic Mexican food this is the place to go and it is a short cab ride away in San Jose del Cabo. We had a lovely lunch on their outdoor patio following a Tequila tasting.

Our activities included a successful fishing trip out of Cabo San Lucas. We brought back 20+ lbs. of Mahi Mahi filets that were cleaned and flash frozen while we enjoyed drinks and a bite to eat at the restaurant next door.

The college students enjoyed the Snorkeling/Booze Cruise combo trip and we enjoyed watching the whales and other sea life on a 3 1/2 hour cruise also out of Cabo San Lucas. Beware if you take the bus from San Jose del Cabo to Cabo San Lucas it is a bit of a walk to the marina. My husband has hip issues so we quickly realized we needed to grab a cab to get from the main hwy to the marina itself.

The Thursday night Art/Shop walk is worth the experience as long as you are willing to window shop or barter. The shops are quaint, the music is fun and the church in the center of town is awesome if you like architecture which we do.

The Mega store is also a short cab ride away or a mile + hike. The 5 of us went by cab and shopped by on our food preferences each taking a turn at cooking an evening meal for the group. The store is well stocked and we were able to find the ingredients for the meals we made in house to accommodate a gluten free and diabetic diet including fresh produce. While some say the water in Cabo is fine we purchased a bottle of sanitizing drops for our fresh produce and bottled water. None of us wanted to take a risk of getting sick on this vacation.

Our only cautions are:
1) Take heed to the warnings about the sales sharks that will try to sell you a ride from the inside of the airport. They are extremely aggressive. With this said the transportation services on the outside of the airport were very helpful in finding the service we had pre-arranged through the resort, Translife. Absolutely bring your transportation confirmation paperwork and ask for a written confirmation of your pick up time a day or two before traveling. The cabbies that serve the resort were fair, accommodating and very helpful. We sought out Carlos every chance we could and now I wish we had obtained his last name.
2) Watch the exchange rate when you are making purchases. 99.9% were honest yet we had one that was less than honest on our first night in the area off the resort property.
3) Most of the vendors that come on site to sell their wares were honest people, yet not all. Hold onto your money until you are ready to buy.

2) ATM / VISA card / Travelers checks?? I would prefer to use VISA and an ATM but wondered if VISA is widely accepted and if there are ATM's in the resort.

3) We aren't getting a car--are there restaurants / grocery stores etc. near the resort (walking distance) or is there some way of getting to them?

We'd appreciate answers to the above and anyother information you think first time visitors to Cabo (and for that matter to a WorldMark resort) should know.

Thanks in advance,

Mike and Doris


Mike and Doris,

We have been going there for about 4-5 years now. We love it there. 1. We always use the shuttle. Never had a problem. 2.Visa is fine. We pay for most of the expenses with Visa. We also bring cash and lock it up in safe in the room. 3. You really don't need a car. There is a Mega grocery store within walking distance and if you have a lot of stuff, you can take the taxi back for around $5.00-$10.00 You have to go to Guacamaya's restaurant. You will need a taxi, Guacamaya's doesn't look like much from the outside, but we always go there every trip. Great food. There is a Costco just up the road (need a taxi). You can go into downtown Cabo via taxi for around $8.00 per person. There is a lot to see in Cabo. Have fun!

I am with a group headed to CB for a week in mid-December. I may or may not have a car - still undecided. I have been looking at snorkeling with whale sharks, but it looks like that only happens out of La Paz. If I book online here they will pick me up, drive me there, give me lunch, and drive me back for between $140 and $175 USD. If I get myself there and back and pay for my own lunch, its $65USD. ALSO, I saw a recommendation that if you hire a local diver, they will take you out for around $40. So... my questions are:
in general, is it cheaper or more expensive to book tours there, or book them in advance online?
If I decide to find a private boat/diver to take us out, does anyone have a a recommendation?
Does anyone have a recommendation for transportation to and from airport?
Has anyone done Sky Tours powered hang glider tour and if so, was it worth it?
Does anyone have any info on the turtle release?
Other than restaurants/bars, are there any other good cultural events that might be interesting this time of year?
Any other suggestions??

Thanks!

We were down there about a year ago. The pictures on the website look to be from the penthouse units, we were in a standar 2-bedroom. Ours had similar furniture (in terms of colors and styles), but it all looked fairly new. There were flat screen TVs and newer appliances.

The pictures posted on the WorldMark website seem a little dated. Of those who have visited recently can you speak to any upgrades that may have taken place or may be in process now. Thanks.

I was in Cabo from Sept 11-18. It's been 4 years since my last trip and boy, there are a lot of changes! I was sad to see the free wifi in the lobby is gone, which was my main way to skype home with my smart phone. Mamma Mia's has free wifi, but it's weak. I think the password is "restaurant" , maybe Restaurant. Supposedly the pool bar has free wifi too, but I never saw a signal for that. The computer room is laid out better though, with the 5 computers against the walls instead of on one big round table.

Every other time I've come has been December or January, and it sure is hot and humid in September, but the A/C works pretty well (if you have water pooling/dripping in your non-master bathroom, check with maintenance, they came out and did something in the ceiling to the A/C and the dripping went away). We actually called on 3 maintenance issues and they responded very quickly, so I was pleased with that. They also had blenders in the rooms, which I couldn't remember and was also pleased to see.

The Walmart is new and huge, but I still prefer Mega, who came through for me with $8 fins for snorkeling (brought my own mask and snorkel). Walmart only had complete sets for $64. As others have mentioned, bring your own sunscreen as it is pretty expensive here. Mega was also slightly cheaper for tequila.

This was also my first time renting a car for the entire week and it was nice to have, especially since we did a lot of activities, snorkeling every day at Chileno, Pelican Beach, and Santa Maria, and scuba diving in Cabo Pulmo...very nice. I followed the advice of fellow tripadvisors and used Antonio, amiranda@cactuscar.com, and got a week in a VW Golf for $180 US, and he upgraded me to a Jetta. It included 80,000 USD liability insurance and I was able to use my American Express premier insurance coverage ($17.95 per rental) to cover LDW. He was touted as a "no hassles, know the total amount up front" rental agency, which was true. This was nice, since the rental car agencies apparently sometimes refuse to rent to you once you get there, unless you buy various amounts of liability insurance and Loss/Damage insurance. Sadly, Christmas week it is much more expensive to rent, so it looks like I'll have to go back to lugging gallons of water home from Mega on foot next trip.

Otherwise, the rooms were in great shape as usual. I remembered to keep all opened food in the microwave or fridge so we had no ant problems. The TV's are new since 2009 and have hdmi input. They also have a nice ipod speaker docking station. Oh, and the Baja Brewery had decent food and very good beer...it's half off during happy hour 4-6pm, which made the beer cheaper than the bottled waters, which were $2 each.
