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

My family (2 adults, 3 children) stayed here from 25 May 2013 for one week. The apartment is big, very roomy, beautifully presented. Very clean and well maintained. It has a large patio area with table and chairs which looks out over the pools and ocean. The view is stunning. The apartment has everything you need, like a home away... More

We recently rented this magnificent ground floor condo for a two week vacation. It is situated on one of the Los Cabos most beautiful stretches of beach, Playa Costa Azul. The setting is very tranquil, yet you are only minutes by car away from the charming and historic town site of San Jose Del Cabo. The condo is fully equipped,... More

We enjoyed our vacation... not just as upscale as I would have liked... I was a bit disappointed in our stay....location was near San Jose and walking distance to several stores, but at the same time.. pretty congested and in a high traffic area... Units are just ok... it is more like a hotel that has been converted to condo's... More

This is the second time we have stayed in this condo, once in 2009. It is a beautiful condo, exactly as the pictures show (we booked through VRBO.com) and El Zalate itself is awesome. The condo has EVERYTHING you need for an enjoyable stay. Within walking distance to a couple restaurants and a short drive into charming San Jose Del... More

Can't fault El Zalate. Beach is spectacular (horseback riding & surfing on your doorstep). Lovely pools, lovely grounds, spectacular view from our balcony. But Cabo is most expensive state in Mexico and the "cabo corridor" is a mess. St Jose itself is pretty and well preserved. Good restaurants, galleries etc. Area around El Zalate though is a jumble of busy... More
