We just spent a week on the beach at Las Mananitas and had a fantastic time. The key to these condos is to pick the right unit - We had 2B right on the beach and loved it. We watched the whales from our balcony and had a great view of all the beach had to offer. The unit was clean and totally equipped. The buildings in the back are close to the highway and have obstructed views. There is a great grocery store and shops nearby. We are already looking into when we can return!

Stayed: March 2017

This is a nice resort on the edge of San Jose... right on the highway...
BUT.....Only a few buildings are actually on the ocean. Most of the buildings are off the ocean and the resort runs up to the highway... be careful of what unit you rent and where it is in on the property.... there is also an abandon condo complex next door... so be careful....

The unit we had was nice enough... pools and fitness center nice enough... beach was nice... but if you are not in one of the front buildings, all you have is a peak-a-boo view of the ocean between buildings... all in all, better places to stay...

This was our second year in a row staying at Las Mananitas. The grounds are meticulously kept, pools and bbq's are great. We stayed in tower 3 closet to Club Fonatour, which is a private owners club that holds parties that can go on until the sun comes up! This year we only had to deal with it on 2 occasions. We were there from Oct. to mid December. The weather was gorgeous every single day. Walk across the street to La Comer (used to be called Mega) same great place for all your grocery needs. Restaurants are walking distance. We never rented a car and walked or took the transit bus, which was right across the highway which is in front of Las Mananitas, you do hear the highway traffic. After week one we really didn't pay much attention to it unless a fire truck or ambulance was racing down the highway.
The beach is right in front of the condos, so we took advantage of that and walked the beach every single day!

We stayed with family for a week in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom spacious ocean front condo. The condo had a full kitchen, laundry room, dining area, living room and full balcony the length of the condo with sliding glass doors from the living room and each of the bedrooms. We were there the end of September, a few weeks before prime season starts. They were undergoing construction due to the hurricane and the workers made sure they didn't interfere with anything we were doing. They were all very friendly and eager to talk about the US if you engaged them in conversation. The security guards at the gate and on the grounds were all very nice and friendly. There are 3 separate buildings each with their own pool, Jacuzzi, bathroom, barbecue grills and very nice furniture if you want to eat in the pool area. Each pool has a swim up bar area with refrigerator and ice machine; but you have to supply your own bar tender. They are all semi-connected so you can use any one you wish. There is a pretty good bus system which runs through "Old Town" and once a week they have a festival in the town square with a band, dancers and shops displaying arts and crafts. The ocean in this area had some pretty strong waves which I experienced first hand as I got tossed around!! There are a number of high end hotels within walking distance along the roadway or beach. There is a supermarket, ice cream, burger, breakfast, retail shops, etc. within walking distance. There is a small Hyatt across the road if you want to catch a nice sit down breakfast, lunch or dinner in their dinning room. If you stroll down the road there are quite a few bars and restaurants within 10-15 minutes. We had use of a car and Cabo San Lucas was about a 20 minute ride south. It's a straight run so you can't get lost. We ate at Alexanders and The Jass Tapas Bar; both had good food and drinks. We also went on a tour of Land's End which was pretty interesting. There is also a bus which stops across from the main gate that goes directly to Cabo San Lucas. Just be aware that the buses do not run on a late schedule which seems to change based on the time of year.

Room Tip: All buildings are well maintained. We had a corner unit which had a view of the pool and ocean.

Let me start by saying the view was great, as was the weather. When we made reservations the owner told us there was a hot tub on the balcony, which was a main factor in renting this condo. We had decided to rent the owner's personal vehicle for an agreed-upon amount. The place offered a pool and beachfront for quick access to the beach. It also had a washer and dryer, which was great because we had to wash our own sheets and towels. There was grocery shopping nearby, and a couple of fast food places. All the things we were looking for. When we arrived the "concierge" was nowhere to be found, so we had no idea where the place was, until we found a groundskeeper to show us. When we arrived at the room we noticed the hot tub was empty, and later when we asked Kevin about it, he said it had not been working in months. There was access to the beach, but warned not to go into the water. Fine, we decided to go to the pool. The pool temp was so cold we couldn't swim in it, and when one of the residents complained about it, she was told there was nothing they could (or more accurately, would) do about it. The vehicle we rented from the owner wasn't used the whole week we were there. We found it more convenient to cab everywhere, which also helped us in getting locals' suggestions on great places to eat and grocery shop. The day before leaving, Kevin, the "concierge," asked for the keys to the vehicle so he could wash it and fill it with gas, and offered to drive us to the airport the next day. We called the number on the business card he gave us to give him the time of our flight, but he did not answer or return our calls. He never showed up the next day. So not only did we have to pay for a cab to the airport, but was not reimbursed for those two days he used the vehicle. No, it's not the money we were out, but more the feeling of being duped. We are planning on returning to San Jose del Cabo, but will not stay in Las Maninitas.

Stayed: November 2015
