Day 6

A travel blog entry by poppymack


... very nice but too much to finish and with one drink each and the bill split we ended up paying $180US for dinner.... **** me! After dinner we jumped in cabs and headed to The Nowhere Bar, which is on the marina and plays eighties music. We stayed for a drink and then headed home. We both felt tired and full. The sun sure takes it out of you. We weren't the first to leave but all the others were not too long after us. Another great ...

Baja Bound

... Los Cabos and San Jose. Fantastic views of the ocean, and quiet, if you discount the birds! It's great to see Wendy, she's been asking us to come to Cabo for years and we've finally done it! We sit and talk and enjoy each others company. Charlie comes home shortly after, returning from a sailboat ride on the O'Day 22 he has recently rebuilt, you can tell he's happy about it! We are introduced and immediately ...

... pop out of the toilet, spouting the investment potential of fractional vacation property ownership in Mexico? I can't live under such constant fear and stress!!! Luckily, the perfect cure for timeshare rep-induced stress in Cabo is easy to find - stick your face in a plate of food and start sucking like a pig in a trough! Your mind can't be preoccupied with such thoughts when all the blood rushes to your stomach, instead.

Cabo Robo

A travel blog entry by i.d.k.


... sailed around the bays of Cabo and listened to semi-decent music and drank margaritas until our fantastic fiesta came to an end. It was a good morning.

I’m not for sure how to write about this next part of our day because it was terrible but we didn’t let it ruin our day, necessarily. Basically… after snorkeling, hubby wanted to go parasailing… we went to a booth at the end of the pier to hire someone.… and so we did... ...

El Arco & Lovers Beach

... of Cortez. This area is also called "Land’s End", as it is the extreme bottom end of the Baja. Rojerio also showed us the Scooby Doo rock, the sea lions on the rocks, the Pacific Window, the Baja Rock, and some colorful fish at Pelicans Rock.

Rojerio dropped us at Lovers Beach and said he would pick us up whenever we wanted ... and he did. This is the standard procedure for these Arch tours. ...

    Love and Hate


    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.

    Someday it will be wonderful, NOT YET


    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.

    Grand Mayan was wonderful


    My husband and I stayed at the Grand Mayan, for two weeks in October.

    Grand Mayan, fabulous resort- EXPENSIVE FOOD!


    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.

    Une merveilleuse semaine avec la chaleur


    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.

    Loved the Reort!!!!!!!


    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.

    The Good and The Bad


    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.

    Beautiful Property


    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.

    Maybe opened too soon??


    What can I say, the Hotel just opened a couple days prior to our arrival..and there were MANY bugs to be worked out. Check in was fine.
