“Wonderful property great price”
Reviewed 13 February 2014

After a lot of research we came up with Alegranza. We were a little apprehensive of the location (10 minute walk to beach) but found the property to be perfect! We had a beautiful view of the water and were only minutes walk to the city San Jose del Cabo. What a great stay and very friendly people.

Alegranza. The good points and the not so good.
POOL & LOUNGS ..3 pools, two are ice cold and unswimable, the one that is heated, is comfortable for swimming
(It is the middle pool), heated at night only.

Pool Lounger..UNCOMFORTABLE, DO NOT ADJUST FOR READING, PLASTIC NO PADDING, for a hi end place, this unacceptable. No wonder every one stays on their balconies.

The condos are beautiful, our was nicely furnised with very nice balcony furniture,

BALCONIES are large.

GROUNDS ...PRISTINE, well maintained, very nice staff

NO RECYCLING.....just throw your garbage in a locker set up. NEED TO RECYCLE! OTHERS DO?

I would stay on the beach next time in san jose del cabos

Although on vrbo the individual condos are listed at rediculously high prices $399 per night, monthly should be $3000. to $3500 a month. Very good value, would be excellent if they heated all the pools and bought some decent loungers for the pool area.

Room Tip: Cabo adventures offer well organized tours, good value, they provide transportation.

Hi,

Thanks for your comments

Regarding the lounges at the pool areas, as of Feb 5 2014, there is 5000 usd more reinvested in lounges so that is not going to be an issue again.

Finally please be aware that out of the 3 pools, we heat phase II and III pools (not the one in phase 1 because the heater is being replaced )- That is probably the pool you were in.

Regards

We stayed at the Alegranza in October, after checking different places & reading reviews which we always do before booking our holidays we decided on the Alegranza The reviews for us are very important on our decisions they have always been very accurate so we have always been extremely pleased with our vacations so far. We have never stayed in a condo for a month before, so we were apprehensive at first about if we would enjoy it there. we also wanted to walk pretty much everywhere & use local transport for a change.. Beach, High Street, & shopping are all 15-20 mins walk. & buses to Los Cabos are frequent & cost a few peso"s . So if your looking for a quiet place to relax. you will have a fabulous vacation here, you can always use 3 Hotels near by for more entertainment also they have many restaurants which are very nice . Everyone at the Alegranza were so pleasant & helpful so many names too mention made our vacation enjoyable so we definitely would recommend Alegranza to all our family & friends & hope to go back there again so thank you once again to everyone at the Alegranza for making us feel so welcome & safe . you all did a excellent job ! .

Room Tip: We stayed in room 402 on the fourth floor & we had a stunning view of the Sea of Cortez.

We stayed at the Alegranza as part of a wedding party & held the ceremony out the terrace of our suite overlooking the ocean. We had the wedding meal catered in our room and was fantastic. The accommodations are well appointed & views are spectacular. There are three pools for use, which were all lovely. If the beach is important, note that it is about a 15 min walk. Casiano's provided the catering and although pricey was well worth it.
Where Alegranza shines is their staff. Everyone awesome! As the reason for our trip was a wedding, there was a great deal of planning & preparation prior to the trip & many details during our stay. I can't say enough about Lucy (concierge). She was remarkable prior to & during our stay. Very professional, knowledgable & efficient. Although Alegranza does not have a spa, she was able to put me in touch with all the appropriate companies to make the wedding day a success (spa, hair & make-up services, florist & catering).
Javier who looked after security, maintenance, etc was also wonderful. Very professional, efficient & accommodating. All of the staff made you feel at home and were always available when we needed them & made us feel valued.
I would recommend the Alegranza if you are looking for more of a quiet relaxed atmosphere. This is a condo, not a resort party atmosphere. Just what we were looking for.
Great job!

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.

Room Tip: If you are going as a group, book a penthouse condo in the newer buildings. There is wonderful outdo...
