Our first vacation of the year was to Cabo San Lucas. I consider this our first vacation because we took a plane out of the country. While Mexico is only a hop, skip, and a jump away, it is still away. We took advantage of our WorldMark timeshare points and stayed at Coral Baja in San Diego Cabo. Here’s my Coral Baja reviewfrom their forum:
“We just got back from Coral Baja last night. Overall the family had a great time. Our 21-month old twins Justice and Jasmine loved the pool, the beach, and the friendly atmosphere.
The resort itself, however, could have been a little more kid friendly. For example, the balcony is not child proof at all. The tile floor may be easier for the maintenance team to clean up, but it is very hard when kids fall on it. Our son fell twice just from running around.
The kitchen where we spent most of our time was lacking some basic necessities. We wish he had a basting brush for our bbq and more plates and cups. For our family of four, we would run the dish washing machine at least 2x a day.
The bedroom was good and pillows were comfortable. The Murphy bed was just ok. Better for kids, but not adults. I am 5’10 and my feet would go past the end of the bed.
Air conditioning was good and the view from the 5th floor was great cause it over looked the ocean and pools.
The Mama Mia restaurant was also good but not great. A tad over priced for just ok food. Entertainment was good also. The comedian/entertainer person was very funny. On Jazz night, the music was also good. Of the Mama Mia events we attended the Fiesta Night. It was better than our expectations and highly recommend this night than the others.
Service in general was very good. However, there were 2x when the water went out. It was restored within 1/2 hour.
We’ll definitely be back, but only when the kids are older. By the way we loved cooking our own food on the community bbq pits by the pool.”
Now, it’s back to reality. See our Cabo 2011 pictures.
