Alegranza
Reviewed 30 October 2013

Research and due diligence paid off. Our month-long stay at Alegranza was very nice and relaxing.

Management & Staffing provided excellent service! Concierge / Front Desk / Maintenance / Housekeeping / Front Gate ~ Javier, Lucy, Esther, Giselle, Diego, Fernando, Sergio, to name a few, were all so friendly and professional and accommodating. They responded to our needs in a prompt and courteous manner. They offered great suggestions for local restaurants and services and sites. They welcomed us so graciously and made us feel at home.

We walked everywhere from Alegranza ~ going downhill was a piece of cake ~ walking back up may have been tough but we managed and it sure helped with our daily exercise. The walks in all directions (beach, markets, downtown) only took 10-15 minutes before we reached our destination.

Our ocean view two bedroom two bath penthouse was outstanding ~ tastefully decorated and well-kept ~ the views were spectacular. We liked the quiet surroundings and the local feel. Alegranza located on a beautiful hilltop above the San Jose golf course is definitely a go to condo away from the busy resorts in Cabo San Lucas ~ if you are looking for a quiet relaxing vacation with all the perks of a resort hotel try Alegranza.

Thank You Alegranza Family!

This is more of a condo complex than a resort.... Great views, good unit.....it sits on top of a hill, but you are a 15 minute walk to the ocean.... you can walk into San Jose as well.
It is in a residential area with other full time residents... cars, dogs, kids, etc........

If you are looking for a condo for an extended stay, this is a great place, but if you are looking for a resort vacation.. there are much better options that are on the beach.

Greetings!

Thanks for your review and we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay.
Regarding your comment about the beach access. BEACH is PUBLIC in Mexico so you can go to any beach you want no matter there is a hotel. In between hotels, there are always paths to go to the beach. Regarding swimmable beaches, in San Jose, people usually go to Acapulkito beach or Palmilla. There are no condos there and people take the car to go there. We are 5 min drive from there. We are 2 min drive from 3 surfing spots as well: zippers, la bocana which you can see from your terrace and pescadito

Hope you can come back and enjoy the views again!

We were amazed by the beauty of the condo and the personal attention we received from the staff. It is a wonderful place to stay. We recommend you bring your own bathrobes. I recommend the stock the frig with water for future guest, There was a welcome bowl of salsa and homemaid torilla chips awaiting our arrival.The bowl of salsa was a great idea, but did was not labeled and we didn't know it contained shrimp. My husband is allegeric to seafood and it made for an adreneline rushing arrival after he had a salsa dipped chip. Luckily, the staff was quick to provide us with bottled water and we had Benedryl tablets with us. He was uncomfortable for awhile, but recupperated after his Benedryl induced nap.

If you are looking to rent a condo in SJC that is off the popular hotel highway, this is it. I did a lot of research and found that Alegranza was the perfect place for our June vacation. Everything that I read in TA was completely true, clean, spacious, well equipped etc....these are privately own condos that are rented to travelers when the owners are back in the US or Canada. First of all you can contact the concierge directly. Lucy was the one that I dealt directly. I made my reservation directly with her, she was so easy to work with, very accommodating and extremely professional. We were picked up from the airport by one of Alegranza's drivers. They charge $40 for up to 5 people. The driver was waiting for us at the airport with a sign that had our name on it. He took us directly to Alegranza. We tipped him $5 dollars. Beware that there a lot of "time share/activity people" at the airport that will aggressively approach you offering their services, so just politely say "No Thanks" don't be rude as they are just doing their job. OK so back to Alegranza, we were greeted by Lucy when we arrived and we finished the transaction with her there at the office. Paid the balance and then she personally took us to the condo. E420 was our condo address. WOW!!! Huge two bedroom, two full bathrooms, huge closets, dining table, 2 couch living room, three TVs, wonderful air conditioner, sliding glass doors in each bedroom and living room, balcony from one end of the condo to the other, BBQ grill on the balcony, washer/dryer combination. The kitchen which is important had frig, micro, coffee maker, toaster oven, stove/oven, dishwasher, 8 place settings of dishes, cups, bowls etc...wine glasses, regular glasses, cooking utensils, silverware, pots, pans, cutting boards. I know this is a lot of info but I think it is important since I was wondering if I should take stuff from my own kitchen. I did end up buying a small knife for cutting fruit and a sponge for washing the dishes. They do have trash bags, dishwasher soap, laundry detergent and paper towels. Bring some dryer sheets if use them as they do not have any there. OK, the property is located on a hill that overlooks the Sea of Cortez to the east and the town of SJC to the west. You can actually see the ocean from our balcony and the beautiful sunrises. Try to get a top level condo, they are quieter and the views are awesome. Walking to downtown is about 20 minutes. It is quite a hike up the hill on the way back. Some reviewed mention walking to Mega is close but, walking back with a bunch of groceries can be challenging. If you are in good shape...great. If not, there are taxis that will drive you back to Alegranza for $5 US. The taxis park their cars towards the back of the store. They are usually yellow/orange vans. If you want to golf, spa, sail or fish, the concierge can make all of the arrangements for you. Because Alegranza is not a beach front property, they have an agreement with Cabo Azul and two others beachfront resorts (sorry I can't think of the names) for day pass. We paid $20 each and we were able to enjoy the gym, pool, beach lounges under the palapas and swim up bar for the day. It was worth it since laying under a shady palapa was so relaxing!! We eventually decided to rent a car since we wanted to drive to Cabo San Lucas and to our golf/spa day at the Palmilla. Lucy arranged a car to be delivered to Alegranza. It was $50 per day and we returned on our way to the airport. Overall it was a great experience!! I will definitely return and will take more family members. Please read my review of Casiano's, the restaurant on the Alegranza property.

Room Tip: The higher up your condo is, the quieter it will be. Also the views are better on the higher floors.

This is the fourth time we have stayed at Alegranza, returning again this year for a month to visit friends we made after we spent 6 months here a few years ago. The location, facilities and staff make this a truly relaxing place for us to spend family time. We have stayed in different apartments each time, always in Alegria block, and each one has been well furnished and set out. We like the new restaurants although prices (at the pool restaurant) are noticeably higher than a few years ago. We cannot thank the concierge staff enough for their patience and expertise and look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: Go for a higher floor for the views, they are stunning.

This is the second year we've spent a month at Alegranza and have booked for two months next year. We love the views, staff, amenities and the large, well-equipped condo. Watching the whales breaching from our balcony, walking along the Estuary or the beach or just swimming and reading by one of the three on-site pools, makes for an enjoyable, relaxing vacation. The historic town of San Jose del Cabo is a short walk away with it's fascinating shops, alleys, restaurants and genuinely friendly people. The two main supermarkets (Mega and Wal Mart) are an easy walk and a taxi back to the condo costs $5. The local bus service is well worth using and very cheap. We went by bus to Cabo San Lucas as well as our favourite beach, Palmilla. Renting a car is easy, but not necessary unless you are doing side trips to Todos Santos (well worth while) or elsewhere. If you are considering staying in SJD I highly recommend Alegranza for its beautiful grounds which are incredibly well-kept, the relaxing atmosphere, superior condos and helpful and knowledgeable staff.

My husband and I rented a three bedroom condo for five weeks. The kitchen was well equipped and organized. The views were amazing; we thoroughly enjoyed dining on the balcony watching the whales breaching out on the bay. We loved the way the windows reseeded completely in both the master bedroom and the living room, making you feel you were living outside. The grounds were beautiful with many types of cacti, palms and an amazing variety of flowering shrubs. We enjoyed using the three swimming pools, the two hot tubs and the fire pits. The Alegranza is well situated being about half way between the beach and the quaint, historical town of San Jose. The ladies in the office were very helpful when planning activities, rental cars or making reservations for dinner. They recommended some restaurants that most tourist would never hear about.

Room Tip: The ground floors have access to the grounds and look out onto the beautiful grounds. The upper floo...
