“Feel like you could live in Mexico”
Reviewed 28 January 2012

Alegranza is situated at a high point in the middle of San Jose affording fabulous views, not only of the ocean (and Whales) but of the city out the back of the suite. Easy walks to the beach, the old city, Thursday night art walk and modern convenience stores like Starbucks and Walmart. the location gives a feeling of being in the middle of this quiet city. No fighting over seats at the pool like we've experienced at the hotels people live here so no hurry for pool time . Want to rent a car? The manager will book it and they will bring it to you and pick it up the next day- no inflated price. Great finishes in the unit, quiet and cool for sleeping at night. There are about 100 units but it feels like you have it to yourself- but lots of Canadians if you really need to talk to someone. Next time I'd bring my tennis racquet. Very safe and quiet place . Almost forgot to menton the wireless that allows for keeping connected to the rest of the world. skyping grand kids from the pool if you want. Please don't come here. we want to keep it to ourselves!

A gorgeous facility - very well maintained, great attention to details, lots of room, and a convenient location (close to the beach as well as the restaurants in town). Javier is a very honest, honorable property manager who was also extremely helpful with great suggestions for lunch/dinner. I'd come back.

This was our second time at Alegranza. Last year we stayed for a month and loved it so much we returned this year for six weeks, It was a specacular holiday and we sure were glad we came back . It was perfect in every way and so much so we are returning for two months next year. Alegranza is a first class facility with the most stunning views of the Sea of Cortez and the Estuary. The very large terrace offers the essence of outdoor living and you get a 260 degree view. Just amazing sunrises and sunsets. The location of Alegrnaza is perfect in every way. You can walk to great restaurants, the beach, several supermarkets, many bars and of course shopping. You are very close within a block of the American hospital and one of the bus stops that will take you to San Lucas. The facility is extremely well maintained form the grounds to the three pools and two hot tubs and large gym. The landscaping is very beautiful with flowers, shrubs, catus of all kinds and palm trees.It does feel like Paradise and it even has a putting green. It is quiet and you never have to worry about getting a chair by the pool but yet it is very family and kid friendly. We had a three bedroom condo that was very spacious and beautifully furnished with a gourmet kitchen and everything you could possibly need. It just felt like home. The staff are always there to assist with booking transportation or tours or to provide advice and suggestions. Flor and Barb are the best and provide great customer service. The guards at the entrance are friendly and put a smile on your face and even try to teach you new Spanish words everyday. Javier and Pedro are always very helpful and give freely of their time . They always follow up and are very sincere people. They go above and beyond the call of duty. One of the reason we chose Alegranza was for the great service and responsiveness of Javier.. There is a brand new and very excellent Greek restaurant at Alegranza. We had lots of fun and a wonderful holiday and we would highly recommend it to anyone. Alegranza is a great find and an awesome place. Will be back next year.

This was my family's third visit to the alegranza in a year. Our first visit was for two weeks over the 2009 Christmas season.we found the alegranza after extensive online searching. I felt it would meet our family of 4 needs for the holiday. since there was so much extra room I allowed both our kids to invite friends along to join us. The Alegranza not only met but exceeded our expectations. The view from our hilltop perch was exquisite, my favorite was watching the sunrise from my bed each morning. The kids had there own space, TV and separate bathroom. the property is the most relaxing and serene place I have been to in Mexico. The condos are exceptionally well kept and the grounds are immaculate .We have vacationed at several Mexican destinations along the west coast and the Mayan. Cabo has been our favorite and the Alegranza has played a big roll in making or stay pleasurable. We returned for a week stay in April 2010 and then again in December to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday.

The staff at Alegranza have always been more than accommodating and helpful with our vacation and activity planning. They are who make the Alegranza such an exceptional property. We always look forward to our return visits. See you soon..........

We stayed at Allegranza 7 nights (4 girlfriends ranging in age from 25-35) in November. The staff was warm and friendly... although we did have to adjust to things happening a bit more on "Cabo" time. There were some issues around our freezer, our DVD player, etc., but nothing critical. Just took a while to get fixed (and yes, we booked through Allegranza directly, not the owner of the condo). There was a persistent issue with the hottub not working while we were there, but it was still warm enough that we enjoyed it. One day we took advantage of the resort share that Allegranza had with Barcelo and were pretty disappointed, actually (TERRIBLE staff). Not the fault of Allegranza, but I'd recommend they seek another share property for beach privledges. Overall, our stay was quite nice. I feel like we got the appropriate value for the money spent and the grounds, in particular, were very nice.

Thanks for such a detailed response.

We take note on Barcelo's and we informed them about it. The good thing is that they are a new hotel and their service has been improving since you were here. No other negative comments have been addressed to us and we try to track recordon that.

In any case; there are many other beaches in the area that you can take advantage next time

On the other hand, our Alegranza on-site team goal is that you have a pleasant stay and react if there is any defficiency on the unit. This is our main asset if you decide to rent through us compared to renting thorugh an owner. We also own several units here, so you would be renting to the owner directly in any case without any extra cost

I hope to see you back soon !

This was strictly a rest and relaxation trip for my husband and I. I was not disappointed with the condo itself, or the on-site restaurant. We had to phone the office because the TV's satellite was not working. It turns out that the condo owner had not paid the bill. We had to phone 2 more times before the situation was corrected. The safe also did not work and the maintenance man could not get it to function for us. The disposal was not in working order either. The maintenance worker finally did get that sorted out. The locks on some of the sliding glass doors were not workable. Since we were on the 3rd floor, we did not worry about it too much. They do have a 24-hour, manned security booth at the entrance. The property is on a hill, so naturally, if you decide to walk, be aware that it is a considerable uphill climb on the return. We were huffing and puffing even though we work out regularly. Despite all of this, we would definitely return for another vacation. It was exactly the vacation that we envisioned as far was relaxing and recharging us. The town was pretty much deserted so we had restaurants and shops to ourselves. We took taxis to the supermarket and we thought it was a reasonable charge at 50 pesos. This was consistent no matter where we went. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and we had the swimming pools to ourselves. When we go back, we will ask them to do a maintenance check prior to our arrival. All in all, it was a great vacation.

Thank you so much for such a response. By renting through the property management at Alegranza and not directly from the owner ,these little issues will be taken into consideration.

We have a team in charge or the pre-check in, check in and check out as well as customer service trying to ensure the success of every stay

Happy to know that you will be coming back

This was truly a great find. Although I like hotels for short stays, I prefer the comforts of home - and Alegranza has all that and more. We rented a spectacular 3-bedroom suite with ocean views, overlooking a beautifully landscaped pool area. The security is great, access to each condo is easy. The kitchen is spacious and finished in granite with ample storage. Each very large bedroom has beautifully appointed and modern bathrooms, all traverstone and glass, double sinks and extremely large balconies with ocean views. My sister found this place on the Internet - great management, great rates... especially good for longer stays or larger families where you really need the separation. It's walking distance to just about everything in downtown San Jose, and they have arrangements with beach hotels. We didn't go to the restaurant unfortunately, but heard is was really excellent and offers room service. How can you beat that?
