“Villa#4 201 Excellent”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

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 Cabo's downtown. The onsite staff at the condos are very personable and available to assist with anything. The owner, Clare is very easy to work with as well. We love it there and will definitely be back.

We just got back from Cabo and we flew in 3 days early to experience staying at another place so we pickedEl Zalate, which was an excellent choice., villa 40l is home away from home. We stayed from 8/15-8/25th.(other days at a beautiful 2 bedroom 3 bath penthouse at THE GRAND SOLMAR). we loved the villa at EL zalate and its surroundings. It was simply breath taking . The villa,was simply beautiful and also the grounds, El Zalate is a beautiful place.Their owners, Sandra, and Cherl are wonderful. They are the best.Their condo is laid-out nicely and very nicely decorated.(speaking from interior designer"s point of view) My husband and I loved it and would stay there again. Can't wait. The oceanview is so breath taking. You ought to visit it's the best. Sandra has it stocked with all sorts of goodies such as: if you swim they have all the toys there to enjoy yourself,if you read they have books fro you vto read, if you want to play games, they have game, music etc. they really make your vacation enjoyable with you having to buy or bring all that stuff. take from me I'm a travel writer part time and a interior designer. You'll love it. Check it out you won't be disappointed. It's a great find. THank YOU SANDRA AND CHERL, your the best. MRS. ARTRESS HOFF, CORONA, CALIFORNIA

Room Tip: Choose vlla 4, unit 401 on the 4th floor. great view of the ocean and grounds, and pool and spa. Gr...

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 roads, abandoned developments, construction sites, garbage, resorts and condos - zero planning. So many nicer places in Mexico. Don't really understand why its so popular. Home away from home? The more giant supermarkets, Applebee's, McD's, Domino Pizza, Starbucks etc the better? All walking distance from here.

Room Tip: Don't think there could be any bad condos at El Zalate. All face the ocean and have large balco...

We loved our stay at El Zalate! Great location and convenient to everything. Pools were gorgeous and grounds were immaculate. There was a security guy there so we felt very safe. Not a huge condo complex so we really enjoyed how peaceful and quiet it was. We did not rent a car so we either walked or took a cab. It was easy for us but I would not recommend it if you have a larger group. Trader Dicks at the top of the hill had everything we needed so it was great to be able to go there and not have to go all the way into town to the grocery store. Lots of restaurants nearby so it's easy to get a great meal without going far! I recommend Mi Ensalada, Zippers, Deckmans, Sardina Cantina. Also the resort next store has 2 for 1 drinks from 4-6 everyday so we would walk over there and grab a drink and then go back to our pool or walk on the beach.

My husband and I found a 1 bdrm condo listed by the owner. We stayed at Villa 3 #102. The place was charming, the view was spectaculor and the patio was spacious. We ate all our meals outside. The condo was very well stocked with towels, linens and kitchen gadgets. The pool was just right outside the door of the patio in a beautiful landscaped oasis. Our week long vacation included walking to the Mega mart, walking to San Jose, and boogie boarding near the Costal Azul hut ( you can rent boogie, surf, paddle boards at a great price). If you are looking for a quiet get away but close enough to all the amenities this is the spot.

My friends and I stayed here when we took a trip with our moms to the Cabo area. They had a 2 bedroom, 3 bathroom condo next-door to our 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom condo. The whole experience was extremely convenient and enjoyable. We each had nice-sized patios that we ate all of our meals on. The beach and multiple pools were only steps away. The complex is very quiet (as is most of San Jose del Cabo), so it was perfect for relaxing during the day and on some nights. If we were looking for a more lively scene, we would just head into downtown Cabo. The only staff I ever saw was the security guard in the parking lot, and he was very nice and helpful. El Zalate is a great location for a relaxing beach vacation!

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms have extremely easy access to the pools and beach

Just back after 2 weeks at this condo. Great experience, very nice location. Most rooms over look ocean with large deck. Well landscaped and clean pools, one heated one not. Hot tub could have been warmer in evening. Great restaurant right up from condo MI Ensilada, great fish taco and salads!!! Mega for groceries is about 15 min walk. Zippers bar and grill not far walk down beach and have good bar food.
Will return again.
