The Beach Club and Pool are nice. I suggest everyone upgrade their rooms, no question upgrade, the standard room is very small. The suites with the bathtub are awkwardly set up, furniture in odd places, lack of drawers, but the extra space indoors and outdoors is great and the views worth it.
The biggest issue we had with this resort was the lack of service and communication! We had small issue after small issue, where does the shuttle to town pick up, what days are the Club House closed, are there other why do we have to get up off the lounge chair and ask for another drink, I was ready to go home after just 4 days. I don’t want to sound lazy but we’d just sailed for a week and wanted to be pampered. The whole experience was lacking, because of the first couple of days I didn’t even bother with the Spa, I sat on the large balcony of our room, sipped wine I bought from the very nice wine store in the Marina and read my book.
We won't stay here again unless we're sailing in and out of the Marina, and then only one night. I think we’d like to be closer to LaPaz a friendly town, great people with wonderful food!
Costa Baja is not close to town, a 120 peso trip, each way; best nearby restaurants are in the Marina, only book the suite and enjoy the endless and incredible views.
PS. we planned on cocktails for our anniversary at the Golf Clubhouse, but that was the only night it was closed, make an effort to get up there; from our brief glimpse the views are stunning.
OH - I just looked through photo's to upload and the only one I had of the room was the one of the dark yellow water that filled the bathtub no matter how long I ran the water, making a bath impossible.
