Review, pretty pleased.

The Residences at La Vista resort is located very close to the Pedregal area, the staff was able to arrange a free shuttle service for us to one of the beaches within Pedregal, which are pretty private and beautiful. It’s pretty much close to everything, about a 20 min walk distance to the Medano beach and the Puerto Paraiso mall, and maybe a 7-10 min walk to ‘La Marina’. There are a bunch stores close to the resort as well, for groceries, souvenirs and pretty cool Mexican stuff. We were two couples and were offered a 2 br unit on the 4th floor (there may be several units available for renting as I believe it's a timeshare property). From our terrace, we had a fantastic view of downtown Cabo San Lucas. Our favorite spot was the jacuzzi in the terrace, and we spent most evenings there. We did had some heating issues with the Jacuzzi but we reported the issue and the staff fixed it for us the next afternoon. We were told it takes several hours to warm up. We were also told, that we had to ask the staff each time we wanted to use the Jacuzzi by the pool and the grill to turn on the gas, which we totally understood, since we are pretty supportive of any environmentally conscious practice. The manager of La Vista was very responsive from the booking stage right until we checked out, and we appreciated her being able to work with our schedule and requests. Except for one small mention for attending a timeshare presentation, which again we understood since is a pretty common business in Cabo, we were not bothered at all which was great. The pool area was a bit too quiet for us. Although the breakfast buffet and restaurant service were available, the palapa bar on the property was closed. The breakfast buffet cost $8 pp and had a decent number of continental and Mexican choices and the restaurant has very beautiful and comfortable chairs and since it has glass walls, you have a view of the pool and palapa, and a bit of the city sight. Keep in mind that since this property is located in a hilly area, it may be a challenge for someone with walking issues but we were able to manage just fine, although they do have some golf cars and transportation available for the residents, you just need to ask! We pretty much walked everywhere, it is pretty close to the night life as well, but far and high enough so you can sleep like a baby at night, pretty quiet, you can’t here almost anything of the city noise, which is a pretty good balance for me, between ‘being close but not too close’ It was also nice to learn that they had a gym, we didn’t use it because our plan was basically just to have a nice relaxing time, but we did take a glance and the equipment was pretty nice, so if that is something that interest you, you would be covered, also, if you are someone who would be planning on staying a very long time, or have a big family, the kitchen and laundry room would come really handy, I have to say, the residences at la vista is probably the most equipped place I have ever stayed, you could basically live there full time! The weather was perfect as usual in Cabo, we were there in the middle of January, leaving behind a very cold and cloudy winter in Seattle, we did had a couple of cloudy days and by night it does gets a bit chilly since is a dessert like area, but from about 10 am to 4 pm you could enjoy a very warm afternoon at the beach and plenty of sunshine for a nice tan. Everyone in the staff spoke pretty good English as most people in Los Cabos, so communication was never a problem, on the contrary, you could built a pretty good relationship with everyone, the entire staff was very friendly and warm, All in all, we enjoyed our stay here and would definitely consider staying here again. Thanks for everything!

The Residences At La Vista Customer Care Review

This place lied about everything to us and stole over $8000 from those promises and contracts and we have absolutly nothing to show for it. They also came back on us under different management and owner (At least they said it was) and tried to scam even more out of us over a year later.

Residences at La Vista, cabo san lucas

Do not presume that if its in the contract, you have any guarantee that promises will be kept. These people reneged on what was promised within a year of the sale! And they then come back and try to squeeze you for more money to "protect" your investment. It is unbelievable and they seem to act with no fear that they will have to deal with being sued or will be held accountable. Seriously. We are appalled and we are veterans of timeshares. This one is THE WORST. No wonder they changed their name from Cabo Viejo. Same scam. Different name. The actual owners are very wealthy and they employ these timeshare people to pressure and defraud. They insulate themselves and no doubt are "above the law" here.

Review in Hotels and Resorts category from Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur

Promised $400US, massages, car rentals, fish foot spa, we decided to venture upon this presentation at the luxurious Pedregal property of La Vista. We are seasoned time share presentation attendees as well as happy owners at Grand Solmar and this is not, by far, our first rodeo. We had been forewarned that this place was a scam but against our better judgment, proceeded. We were greeted by "John Warner" who told us we would not qualify for our "gifts" because we are in the process of purchasing a new home, closing next week, and we were afraid to do anything that might mess up our mortgage committment. Breakfast was a disgusting slop that was served in a more than pitiful area, and nobody else was in there. He told us he would take us on a "courtesy tour" to see a room. It did not end there. We were escorted to "the room " where we then encountered 2 other people trying to push their product. When i asked why they were going thru all the procedure sales pitches when we were told it was only going to be a room tour, the woman, Dalia, winked and told us not to worry we would still get our gifts if we "push us". We figured that meant the typical banter back and forth. So we sat for 3 more hours listening to their *** thinking $$$signs and car rental etc. After the usual attempted squeeze, all the amazing offers they could possibly imagine to throw at us... free weeks, plane fare, a book full of free trips massages, even to move us over to there for the remainder of our trip...we continued to say NO because of our mortgage situation. "John" then said he would finance us through Mexico, nobody would know. He had a plan that would work for us. Now we are totally assuming that since there was a way around our mortgage situation, we will have survived positively the presentation, get our gifts, and run. In the end, all the happy faces turned into the devil and they did not give us our stuff. They basically threw us out, would not even pay for our cab back to our hotel, and ended up with this *** reviews all over the internet. After researching this La Vista we realized it is a total scam, taking on a new name from old busted time share hotels. Please dont waste your time. The place is so not worth it. By the way Dalia spoke perfect English but her "push us" actually translated to "purchase" with a Mexican accent. My husband and i are not senile or deaf. DONT DO IT!

Beyond Experience Luxury Concierge Service

Don`t sign up to the Beyond Experience at The Residences At La Vista until you have read this. James Fawcett says that its a Luxury Concierge service but it just another timeshare scam. The Residences At La Vista was formerly Cabo Viejo Luxury Estates which closes down because of timeshare scams and reopened as The Residences At La Vista. Just check them out online and see all the complaints about fraud. The guy running the show is Jame Fawcett and he is a convicted criminal too!
