Great Condo. Great Location. Great Service. Can't Wait to Come Back!

  • 5 of 5

Jim’s Condo was the perfect accommodation for our needs in Cabo. The condo is well located at the Marina right above the Tesoro Resort (condos have no association with the resort). We did not have any need for a car and walked everywhere. We were looking for R&R so nice that the condo is away from the main road with the clubs and bars but still close to restaurants and water activities.

I thought the price was a tremendous value for the location and the amenities. The condo itself has two beds and two bathrooms, small family room and kitchen. I came with my adult children but it would be plenty of space for two couples. It is clean, the beds are comfortable and the wifi worked well. We did not use the kitchen to cook so I cannot speak to the stovetop, but note that there is no dishwasher. There is also no washer or dryer in condo or in the condo complex. Ana, Jim’s local property manager who works at the the Hotel Mar de Cortez assisted us by taking our laundry to the full-service laundry services next to the Cortez hotel and dropping it off at the hotel! It was cheap and convenient.

Speaking of Anna, she was very helpful during our stay. I felt that we had a personal concierge. She can get you discounts for most activities. We paid $42 (vs. $65) for snorkeling tour and $38 (vs $50) for whale watching. Please note that you need to pay her in pesos. We also asked her many questions and she was always welcoming and patient with us.

The Tesoro Resort does not offer day passes for their pool to the public. I highly recommend getting day passes at Grande Playa pool. Call and ask to book the day passes with Ciendy. The price is $25 but you receive a credit for the full amount for food & drinks. There are two pool areas. The Ridge at the top of the hotel has smaller pools but an incredible view. There are two large pools on the main grounds near the beach. You can access both pool areas but need to use your credit at one of the pools. You feel very welcome & the service is great. We walked to the Grande Playa from our condo in 12 minutes. It is on the other side of the Marina. It is a $8, 2 minute taxi ride.

I am hoping I can return next January with my husband and another couple to Jim’s condo. One of the best vacations that I have taken recently and Jim’s condo very much contributed to the enjoyment of our overall stay! Thank You!!

Very convenient to the Cabo Marina....

  • 3 of 5

We stayed here in July while on a 5-day deep sea fishing trip, and the condo was very convenient to the marina where our boat was docked as well as most restaurants and activities in the immediate area. It is a comfortable unit & the air conditioning works great. I would definitely book again next time we are there to go deep sea fishing.

Initially liked the property because of the value but turned out to be more trouble than it's worth

  • 3 of 5

When I booked the property I thought it was a fantastic deal: 2 rooms, 2 bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, dining table, air conditioner, sofa bed, wi-fi, balcony and literally 10 steps from marina.

Finding the place was easy, Jim Thatcher gave excellent directions prior to arrival along with notes on where to find groceries, how to set up Wi-Fi, etc... and how to contact the property manager, Ana Chong, which I will get to later. Little shower bottles were abundant, plenty of bed sheets, and it felt just like home.

At first everything seemed to be fine, except for a few issues such as a shower rack that was loose, stains on mirror, and a loose door knob that slipped off often. Minor issues, but was still planning on giving this place 5 stars.

The trouble started the second day when an A/C inside one of the rooms (separate from central A/C because it didn't reach one of the rooms) began leaking condensate inside the bedroom. We had to keep it on low and used pots to collect the water but was leaking so bad that we almost couldn't use it. We told Ana, the property manager, but she seemed not to care. On the 5th day it stopped leaking somehow and we were able to use it. Also, the A/C was not strong enough in the other bedroom and my partner and I sweated at night which made it hard to sleep.

One of the bathroom toilet's water tank filled up so slowly that it could only be flushed once per hour. The Wi-Fi also went out periodically. I don't watch TV but the signal went weak at times.

If this were all, then I would still give 4 stars, however, I am inclined to disclose that I believe there were bed bugs on the property. We found little bugs which I wanted to believe were baby ants, but several of us woke up with bites and we were quite itchy in bed at night. The final night I confirmed the bed bugs because I could feel them crawling on me for about an hour or so and I felt helpless but to ignore them and try to catch some sleep before the flight.

Overall, I believe this is a great property that needs to be worked on. Ana, the property manager, did not check up on us once, but she did have great deals for activities. I have mixed feelings about this property, but probably would not stay here again in its current condition.

Owner's Response: Contrary to the "belief" of this guest, there are no bed bugs in Condo 50. In the over 10 years of being listed with VRBO, the reviews have never said otherwise. This guest review came 3 weeks after the guest's stay, without any prior communication about the guest's belief about his last night's stay. Our property caretaker Ana had our regularly scheduled fumigator (Terminex) thoroughly check the condo after this review and there were no pests of any kind. I am now adding that several guests have stayed in Condo 50 since this guest did, and there is no problem. This review was reckless speculation and not appreciated.

A great condo

  • 5 of 5

This review is so overdue! we stayed here last March 2016, and it was a wonderful experience. It is located in a very central area, which allowed us to be without a car. There is nothing that I like better than being able to walk everywhere - especially after enjoying a drink or two. We were travelling with our adult son, so it was great to have two full bathrooms and bedrooms. The living area is quite ample, and we enjoyed sitting on the terrace in the evenings. Would definitely stay here again.

Downtown on the Marina: No need for car rental or taxis, you are at the centre of it all, a superb location for, and only a few minutes walk to the best restaurants and shopping, with lunch/snorkelling cruises past El Arco up the Sea of Cortez to Santa Maria Bay or Chilean Bay, and dinner/sunset cruises around El Arco up the Pacific ocean, and fishing charters, all essentially leaving from your doorstep on the marina! You can take a leisurely 20 minute stroll around the beautiful marina walkway to the fabulous Medano beach (which is great for swimming and water sports such as waverunner/jetskis and parasailing) while taking in the sights, including the ultra luxurious Puerto Paraiso Mall. And from our condo you are only 5 to 8 minutes walk to the best clubs, including Cabo Wabo, No Where Bar, Giggling Marlin and El Squid Roe. Walk 2 minutes around the corner for 'Swim with the Dolphins'. Be picked up downstairs for adventure excursions on ATVs, Baja dune buggies, Zip Lines, or to Cerritos beach for a day trip of boggie boarding and surfing. The Los Cabos Country Club Golf Course is only 2 miles away.
