... mushrooms, and potato skins. Janene had tortilla soup which was as good looking to eat as it was tasty.
Back to our room the girls are bathed in their outdoor spa and into bed. We need to clear the fridge of any leftover alcohol so the kids teach us drinking games. 1 2 3 4 you need to be coordinated to play this one. Then we do fingers on the cup, not sure if it has a name but it is pretty funny. Rock ...
... menu. They have a guacamole chicken sandwich ... a breaded chicken breast with guacamole as the sauce. Looked pretty good.
We found a neat outdoor organic restaurant called "Cynthia" that we went back to for supper. It was a wonderful cozy atmoshere with little light strings and huge lanterns ... the perfect atmosphere for an outdoor wedding. Wish we could take it back with us.
Today was pretty similar to ...
So we made it "home" safe and sound and headed out for some groceries. We had no water anyways so we figured we'd use the WC at either Wal-Mart or Costco. We promptly stocked up the fridge with the necessities including liquid refreshment. Then we hung up the hammock on our roof top terrace and enjoyed the view over a cold beer.
You would think that being in Mexico we could stock up on cheap local produce and other groceries cheaply and shop at small local stores. That ...
... US type places besides the Wal-Mart and Costco. Also saw Home Depot, BK, Subway, Applebees and probably another couple stores I am forgetting. Traveled along the coast for awhile and then more into the mountains.
The zipline place is in the mountains and quite beautiful. Things are still pretty green so I am guessing they must have had some rain recently. It was more ...

It was getting pretty hot downtown so we headed back to the Marina and got an ice cream cone at DQ, then caught a water taxi over to the Pueblo Bonito Rosa which is one of the sister resorts. That cost $5 each, but it had a glass bottom area where you could see fish beneath the boat including large schools of anchovies. The taxi just drives up onto the beach and you have to jump over the side onto the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Grand Mayan Los Cabos San Jose Del Cabo
If you are thinking of trading here from RCI, don't! We had a studio that adjoined another unit and you could hear every small sound. It was noisier than a Motel 6, when we asked the front desk we were told to "put a towel next to the door!" Then in a high pressure sales presentation they told us that RCI was (profanity) then told us they used the studio units only to lure prospective customers to presentations! They also stated they only wanted rich people there, explaining the 5 dollar cup of coffee, the 30 dollar breakfast. By the way there is no complimentary coffee anywhere onsight! If you go to the swim up bar, ask loudly for the alchohol to be served seperately, otherwise you will get about 1/4 shot per drink. The bartender will try to ignore you, insist! With that said, the location is gorgeous, the pool very nice. I would only return if I had a unit that had a kitchen so I wasn't at the mercy of the Grand Mayan. You can walk to great food for breakfast(Habenero's) and a short cab ride to excellent lunches and dinner at Zipper's . I especially liked dinner at La Bodega.
My mother in law is an owner for the Grand Mayan properties. I have been to Mayan Riviera and Nuevo Vallarta and now the San Jose Del Cabo property. I think eventually my favorite will be the San Jose Del Cabo property, but they opened this place way to early. I am still here now. We had to rent a laptop in order to have computer access, usually they have the computer lab in the onsite store, they don't have it here yet. The food options at the resort are absolutely ridiculous. We haven't even tried to eat onsite since Tuesday when my mother in law asked what was open at 6pm, it is very confusing, they told us the only place that was open that night was the $38pp Italian buffet, we opted to go to San Jose instead, it is a $5 cab ride. The $18 hamburger that someone mentioned was something I looked into because that was hard for me to believe, it is true, but it is supposed to be Kobe beef, but it wasn't that good. I have had better hamburgers and they weren't special beef. The grounds are beautiful, but my mother in law and I refer to the onsite evening bar as the mosquito bar, since we were both eaten alive our first night here and we don't usually have that problem at any of these resorts. Someone told us it was because of the hurricane that happened here several weeks ago.
My husband and I stayed at the Grand Mayan, for two weeks in October.
We are staying here on Ground Floor at the Grand Mayan right now and due to leave on 9/30. First, the good things: The Resort is beautiful! We LOVE it. Gorgeous hotel with pools that are beyond wonderful. Cabanas poolside and the infinity pool is fabulous. The design and decor of the hotel is beautiful and quite different from the common mexican stucco. We are very happy with our room and the staff has been so friendly. We had a couple of small problems in the room i.e. no shelf to put soap on it the shower, no can opener in the room and everything we have called down to the desk about has been taken care of IMMEDIATELY and with a smile. The staff has been great. No pressure from anyone about timeshare presentations which has made my trip!! I hate getting baraged by timeshare sharks so we have appreciated not being bothered about it.
My husand and I traded our Mayan Timeshare for a week the end of September, 2007 as I had eagerly been awaiting the opening of the building. It is a lovely building, beautiful rooms, and great grounds, pools and lounges,& comfy outdoor beds with shades. I only saw two beach hawkers in seven days.
Nous avons échangé notre multipropriété au Mayan pour une semaine fin septembre 2007, car j'attendais avec impatience l'ouverture de cette nouvelle résidence. C'est une belle construction, tout est superbe: les chambres, les jardins, les piscines, les salons, et il y a de confortables chaises-longues avec des parasols. Je n'ai vu que 2 prostituées sur la plage pendant toute la semaine.
I just got back from the resort after spending a week there with family of 7.. inlcuding my in-laws. We had such a great time .. already talking about going back.
We just returned from The Grand Mayan in San Jose/Los Cabos on 9/23. We have been Grand Mayan owners for 5 years. It is a smaller resort more quaint than the others.
My 4 yr old son and I arrived, along with my cousin (we are both in our mid 30s) after my parents arrived the evening before. They had us picked up in the airport for free, which I appreciated esp when traveling with a 4 yr.old. Check in was very smooth and easy but they did not give us a towel card (presuming my parents already had one) I came back the next day to get one.
