We stayed here on the fourth floor for one week. What a great property Beautiful grounds two pools one heated one not and a large hot tub. Steps from the long sand beach if you prefer. Ocean quite noisy but you do get used to it. Never needed to use the c as there was always a breeze and it... More

El Zalate is a great base to explore from. It has two pools. One is heated (but it seemed like the heat wasn't always on) it also has a hot tub. Our son made some friends and enjoyed the pool. Shopping for groceries is just a three minute drive. You could walk if you wanted. People are very friendly and... More

February 15, 2015 VRBO #460518, Villa 4, unit 603 There are those “Moments of Truth” when you first arrive at a condo rental, hoping everything will be as advertised and pictured. Arriving in the afternoon at unit 603 we did what we normally do: check out the condo to see that it had all that it promised. It was looking... More

We loved this property and it's location. The ocean is so close you can just walk out to the Playa Hotel Beach and set up a couple of chairs and enjoy your day! We loved listening to the ocean sounds all night and especially enjoyed having dinner on our large terrace. Our unit on the 6th floor had great views.... More

Nice, spacious, clean, amazing comfy beds, and a view of the beach/ocean - priceless! From every angle of the condo you can sit, relax with a fantastic cocktail and watch the sunrise/sunset as the whales play in the distance. This condo is fully equipped from blenders, dishwasher, washer/dryer and full Wi-Fi service. The grounds are impeccable and the pool(s) are... More

After Hurricane Odile we were scrambling to find a location for our trip scheduled not quite 6 weeks later since our timeshare was damaged. The owner very graciously answered all of our questions and assured us the condo sustained no damage. We found the property to be as described - everything was in good shape. The condo was clean and... More

What a paradise! My husband and I met our two adult children in San Jose del Cabo for Christmas. We were treated to a fabulous, fully stocked condo, with an awesome porch and a grill and spectacular views of the beach and the sunrise. The El Zalate staff were very helpful and the grounds and pools were pristine. We enjoyed... More

Wife and I just returned after being there for 2 weeks (11-9 to 23, 2013). Condos are nice, and well equipped. Much better than a timeshare resort like Coral Baja, and less expensive than other comperable stays, such as the Hilton Los Cabos. Our unit and others we were in were nicely decorated and furnished. Additionally, the bed was v.... More

Stayed a week at el zalate. Got our place directly from the owner. Very clean grounds. Right on the beach. Two nice pools. Awesome vistas. Close to the mega. It's not a time share place so there isn't anyone here hounding you to listen to their presentation. I reccomend a rental car for exploring or a trip to Cabo. It... More

My wife, myself, and another couple rented this villa at El Zalate in September 2013, which we found out when we got down there is the off season. We loved it! Staying in San Jose is much better from what we could tell than staying in Cabo, as long as you have a rental car which we did. El Zalate... More
