Wrapping up a 11 night stay - it is just as you remember - clean, friendly, safe and tropical weather. I will write more when I get home, but did want to tell everyone that they now provide free WiFi throughout the grounds!

We kept our Cellular Data off almost the entire time (although AT&T and Verizon now give you free voice and text in Mexico up to 1Gb) and the wireless services worked perfectly throughout the grounds. I personally didn't use it outside of the room, but we brought three young adults here (in a separate room) and they were very happy :-)

Hello everyone

My wife and I arrived yesterday for a 11 night stay here at WCB, although we have historically vacationed in SJD annually, we have not been down since the hurricane.

First and foremost, the resort is still everything that we remembered and more. We always stay in a 1BR Deluxe, this trip we are in the fist building on the 5th floor and our room could not be more perfect. From the views to the upgraded interior - just perfect. Here are a few items that stand out from our arrival and first night:

The airport is the same with the exception of the Timeshare sharks - they added two additional rooms/gates once you clear baggage that is very confusing and had many unexperienced "held" up. Once you get your bag and you proceed around the corner, you wait to provide the international documentation from the plane. After you are asked if you are carrying any alcohol you press a button if it is green you proceed, if it is red, you have to place your bags in X-ray and have them inspected.

Once you exit through the sliding doors, the adventure begins. Lots of folks asking you if you are looking for the shuttle or taxi trying to stop you - "hey folks, where are you staying".. over and over. We know better and just booked it past two additional sets of sliding doors until we we're outside. One of the things I noticed once we were out side. I rent a car so we quickly preceded to the shuttle that is parked outside and were taken to the rental agency.

Two things about renting a car in Mexico, Third Party Coverage is mandatory and although most leverage their credit card to cover this, I add it to the rental. To be honest it's the most expensive part. You can rent a car here for $7 a day, that's a standard car like VW Jetta, it's an additional $15 for TPI. My total for 12 days is about $350. We have both of our sons and one has a girlfriend joining us so I will be making additional trips to pick them up, the cost of shuttling all of them makes up for the cost. When you exit the shuttle to go into the rental agency (I use Alamo, but they are all like this), a person will say "where are you staying", just smile and say - With friends. if you tell them your hotel they know two things - you are already someone that purchased a timeshare, and you are not staying at X resort so they can try to get you to attend a presentation. How nice..... They will follow you to the counter and ease drop on your conversation with their "Friend" at the rental desk. Just have your print out with the cost as the next trick is to act like your reservation is higher than what you booked - they said my rental was $475 - I just simply said "check your math my friend, and I have proof of the rental that states otherwise. Next he says "where are you staying" trying to get this so his friend can be armed to act - just smile and say "I did not". Next he said, I added this up again and - bam... it was the exact cost of my rental. In my case the Timeshare shark knew that I was not game and walked away without saying another word. In previous years, they usually say they will cover the cost of the rental if I attend a presentation.

I use the toll road to get to our hotel, the cost is about $2.00 US. You get a ticket at the first gate and pay at the second that is about 5 miles down the road. Note – to get to WCB you need to pass the resort and use a “return” to go under a bridge and loop back.

The resort is, as always – just perfect. All of our friends that have taken care of us for years are still working here.

On our first night, we decided to head into the hotel zone and grab dinner. Talk about upgrade… wow, lots of new shopping just across the road from the major hotels and some great new restaurants. We decided to eat at the Rock & Brew. I had wings and we split a burger, my wife had a side salad. Great service, good beer and quality food; we will go back.

I’ll add more here in a few days after we get settled in.

Cheers

They are located in the front buildings and the view depends on the floor and tree locations; you will have a view of the ocean. I personally would never stay in the back building - no view - lots of street noise.

Hello everyone,

It has been almost three years since we've been to WM Cabo - just booked a last minute trip the second half of April. Prior to the hurricane my wife and I have been staying at the WM Cabo resort every year for years and love it! Over the years I've created a travel document that I update each year. The document has everything from maps, airport and transportation tips and reviews of restaurants and activities. If you want a copy send me an email here and I'll send it to you.

Dennis

We usually use Transcabo, but we have not been in three years, so things change. We only book one way from the airport and catch a cab back. Usually share one with someone else heading back to the airport.

The front buildings face the ocean and the pool. Some have a better view of one or the other depending on their location. The back building is behind these buildings across the parking lot and main entrance. I haven't been in them but I doubt you would have a very good view of the ocean. You definitely wouldn't have a view of the pool.

When booking online, they give the option of "front" building or "back" building. What does this mean? Does one of them face the ocean and if so, which one? Thanks

The exchange rate for dollars to pesos is extremely good right now--almost 20 pesos to each dollar. You will save quite a bit if you pay in pesos because you'll get them at the official rate and shop keepers/restaurants will probably give you only 15, 16 or 17 to the dollar.

I know there's at least one bank/ATM across the street. We used it last time we were down there.

So last time we were at the Coral Baja (4 years ago) we took travelers Checks and were able to change them for peso at the front desk. Our bank no longer provides travelers checks. How are people exchanging money? Is there an ATM on site or very near by?

We have used TransCabo every year for the past several years. One a couple of trips with family we have booked a private shuttle. Our experience has been 100% positive - they are always prompt and friendly. http://www.transcabo.com/

Has anyone used other than Translife for transportation from the Airport to the Resort? We have a group of 10 people that want to do private ride and wanted to know which company we can trust?

and is CaboBob still around?
Thanks

I have not been to worldmark coral baja since 2002. At that time they had a live Mexican show with costumes and fire dancers. Does Mama Mia still put on shows for their guests?

Just returned from CB and happy to report that the work from the hurricane and the remodel (bumped up from 2016) all seem to be finished. I saw lots of photos of the damage and wish they would have shared them with everyone. They did a really nice job on the pool and bridge refinishing. The buildings all look good too. I really enjoyed the new living room furniture (long overdue!) but am a tad disappointed the couches are still uncomfortable for lounging. There are new red chairs at the pool that have a little shape to them....really nice for sitting, a bit awkward if you want to lay on your stomach.

Most of the same staff are still there. I finally saw Victor poking around the activity hut so sounds like he is back now too. When I did my owner update he told me they let the staff and their families move in while the repairs were being completed to make sure they had a roof over their head. I think that was an amazing gesture.

It was hard to tell a hurricane had wiped out the place just a year ago. Everything is pretty much back up and running.
