La Jolla de Los Cabos
Reviewed 4 July 2011

As an owner who rents their condo, it's amazing that for all these years TribAdvisor can't get this right. At the La Jolla Condominium complex there is no one hotel, but instead a few hundred property owners who either rent their units directly to the public themselves, each condo rented directly from the actual owner, OR, they don't rent them at all. The only other option at the La Jolla area is a small hotel which has changed names over the years, many years ago calling themselves the La Jolla Hotel, then later Playa Del Sol and now Belair Hotel, has nothing to do with what looks like an adjoining property, the La Jolla Condominium complex. When the hotel was under former ownership they got bad reviews. We hear good things about Belair, the new owner. For those renting through a private owner, each property owner is different. Some are better than others. The odds are you'll find a good one that will provide you a nice vacation. Don't rent from anyone with a bad review. But, don't, for crying out loud, listen to this list of complaints about La Jolla, when 90% of the complains were for the former owners of the Bel Air hotel, when it was called Playa Del Sol. Playa Del Sol has NOTHING to do with La Jolla and it's privately owned condos, some of which can be rented from the homeowners themselves.

Room Tip: Go to VRBO.com and find a La Jollse Condo for rent

Better late than never. We had a wonderful time for spring break. There was a total of 10 families on this trip. Most of us stayed at La Jolla. Beautiful views from all units. Enjoyed many whale shows - extraodinary! Tropical landscaping, very clean property. Guard gate entrance coming in from north. From the south no guard gate. Fully equipped kitchen used it for breakfast/lunch/snaks. Would definitely stay here again!

We got this condo through VRBO and were very pleased. A beautiful corner unit with panoramic views of the pristine beach, gorgeous sunrises and moonrises. Looked like a Corona ad! The condo was spotless and well appointed. The pools were great, and we found the location superb. The beach was clean and almost empty, since we're far enough away from the big hotels, but only a fifteen minute walk up the beach to the Mega for shopping. (if you walk the beach cut inland when you see the palm covered shade structure and take the path between the hotels.. you'll end up at the Mega). A nice guy named Victor gave my wife and kids one hour horseback ride up the beach one morning for only $25, and he brought the horses up the beach right to our condo. Couldn't be easier.

Room Tip: Condo G-206 is listed on VRBO. Good owner.

My family and I have stayed in D203 for five years in a row. We travel with three children under the age of 10 and have nothing but great things to say about the condo, the location, the beach and the fantastic people.
In 2010 we stayed from Dec 22nd to the 9th of January. We love the clean, safe pool and beaches, great location close to town and the value that we get from a two bedroom condo with a full kitchen. The condo unit is like a home away from home. Three beds, two bathrooms and two TVs. iPod player, full set of cooking gear and all the spices and condiments you would ever need.
I would highly reccomend renting the unit if it is available. The property manager, Isabelle, is on site and can deal with any problems immediately. The Unit is clean and has the most fantastic views from the balcony. You can see the unit from the pool which is great if your young ones want to run back to the unit for a extra towel or snack.
I would highly reccomend the unit and the location to anyone looking to stay in San Jose Del Cabo.

We rent our unit out, as do many owners, directly, or through third parties. The hotel at La Jolla used to be called La Jolla, but is now Playa del Sol, as another poster stated. Most, the vast majority, of condos rented directly from homeowners are very nice. The condo section, or homeowner area of La Jolla is not on the same grounds as the Playa del Sol hotel. Anything to do with Playa del Sol is totally separate, as there are no connections between the two complexes, though they are directly next to each other.

The mistake was made here when whoever it was that submitted La Jolla as a hotel listing, did so back when the hotel was called the La Jolla Hotel. For many years now it has been called the Playa del Sol, under new owners I am told. La Jolla is actually the condominium complex right next door. This listing needs to be corrected, so as not to confuse the public who might prefer a hotel over a condo, or a condo over a hotel room.

After reading the incredible story above about D-308, all I can say is, check the renter's listing of references. The La Jolla complex is very well cared for, has the largest beachfront access of any hotel or condominium complex in all of San Jose del Cabo. It's a beautiful place to vacation. Of all of our rentals, we have an average of 45% return customers, which is probably typical for others in the complex.

I highly encourage you to come and enjoy our condos and our amenities. La Jolla is second to none. We've owned there now for about eight years.

Our family has been here for 1 week, for Christmas, with another 10 days to go. What a great Christmas we've had!!! This is not a scam as written in other reviews. We are renting unit D-104, a ground level unit with the large heated pool on one side, and a pristine sandy white beach on the other - it doesn't get much better!!! This is not the Playa del Sol, as previously written, that is true. The Playa del Sol is right beside us - a very nice hotel. This is a private condo complex with lots of wonderful owners and renters. The beach is not the most kid-friendly swimming beach, due to the waves, but great for boogie boarding! When you get past the waves crashing on the beach, it's definately swimmable. My husband was out snorkeling yesterday and saw all kinds of fish - although there are better snorkeling beaches about 15 minutes down the road towards Cabo - Playa Chileno & Santa Maria. I would come back here in a heart beat, as many families do. There are owners and renters that come here every year for Christmas...it's a very friendly, safe, environment. You are about a 3 minute drive to the town center, and about 20 minutes to Cabo (I don't recommend Cabo - too crowded)
I would definately recommend La Jolla to anyone wanting to relax in the sun!!!

La Jolla De Los Cabos, condo D308.......Please read this review before you spend any money. Read the reviews after I paid in full up front for this condo and confronted the man who rented it to me. He now calls himself "ERIC" or just "E" he rented us the condo for his "special" rate of 99 dollars a night. gave us maps, free info, destinations, surf reports the whole 9 yards. When we showed up we were denied access to the condo and told to leave or the co-owner "Dana Martzen" would call the police on us. He lied to us and told us the condo was condemned..no power, or sewage was connected. I spoke a decent amount of Spanish and the security guard gave us the key. When we entered the condo was perfect, everything worked. I thought dana had a change of heart and allowed us to stay after I threatened to sue, but he showed up 2 hours later threatening to remove us via police again. We talked to the HOA manager on site and Dana (who co-owns with "thane" or "erik") and they agreed to let us stay one night as long as we were out by 8 am. I don't know exactly who i was scammed by, either Thane or the co-owner on site who is physically the person who would not let me in. But either way i recommend that you stay away not only from this person, but the whole area. save your money for a resort you can trust, the entire place seemed suspicious to me. We of course will be filing small claims against "Thane" (erik, as he called himself to me) and contacting the local media to run a story on the scam that has apparently ruined multiple peoples vacations. we were forced to spend 800 dollars for lodging in cabo due to high volume of rentals for the summer. all in all we spent 1400 for lodging for 6 days....NOT WORTH IT!!! stay away from this condo please. This IS the truth
