Welcome to Costa Baja Condo Hotel Newsletter – August 2008

This is very exciting time for The Costa Baja Condo Hotel, there has been so many exciting things going on, that it’s hard to find a place to start. To begin with, I’d like to welcome our new owners who have joined us in the last month. June started out with a BANG and never stopped. The weather was perfect, the people are always friendly, the food was great, and friendships were made that last a lifetime. We have started some new promotions to get the word out about Costa Baja Condo Hotel. You may or may not know that a lot of our sales are made from word of mouth. Once you’ve been here and have seen what’s been happening, and the opportunity that is presented, you have to go home and tell all your friends…you just can’t help it! So check out the promotions, and oh yes, don’t forget to check out the Gila Lounge Bar website, . The photo gallery is a blast, let us know when you arrive and we’ll make sure we take a photo and add you to the gallery.

For those of you who haven’t been here yet or it’s been a few months, to update you, we have been working very hard on the Costa Baja. The entire exterior of the Costa Baja Condo Hotel, The Cinco Sabores Restaurant, and Gila Lounge Bar has been refinished in a vibrant color that adds to the Mexican charm of the Port of Ensenada, better known as the “Cinderella of the Pacific”. The underground garage has also been improved. The interior of the restaurant has been fully remodeled, from new tables and chairs, marble floors, live lobster tank, Mexican revolution period art, and a blue sky effect painted on the ceilings! New frameless glass doors with Cinco Sabores etched into them adds to ambiance. Moving upstairs to the Gila Bar you will notice the covered terrace and stacked rock waterfall. The Gila Lounge Bar Terrace has turned into quite a HOT SPOT…while the restaurant was being remodeled; the owners, guests, and patrons enjoyed their meals outside on the patio, with the sound of the waterfall. Now, with the restaurant completed and the weather being the perfect temperature, the terrace area is where everyone wants to be. On the weekends it fills with people who love to dance to live music and have an overall great time. I can’t forget to mention the big screen television on the patio, this is where everyone gathers to watch the current sporting events. Inside the Gila Bar, there are also flat paneled big screen televisions where you can favorite sporting event, request live music videos from a catalogue of millions, and sing your favorite songs through our in-house Karaoke system.

As I said earlier, A LOT has been going on! Saving the best for last… the pool area and spa rivals any Las Vegas resort. The three tiered spa is one of a kind! That, along with the large pool featuring a swim-up bar, it just can’t get any better…OH WAIT, yes it can!!! I forgot to mention the poolside cabana bar. Now, all you have to do is picture yourself with your umbrella drink and we’ll see you soon!

Just to let everyone know, The Colors of the Harvest Festival 2008 is August 16. This is in the Valle de Guadalupe (Wine Country). There will be the Blessing of the First Milling, stomping of the grapes, country style food and lots of fun to be had by all. On August 17, the fun continues with the Fiestas de Vendimia Wine Festival, it includes cultural, musical & culinary events. This commemorates the Birth of the Wine and all the wineries in the region participate.

I would be remiss if I didn’t tell you how much fun everyone had at The Tecate Baja 500 Off-Road Races. The racers start and finish in Ensenada, the town was full and the party lasted through the weekend. The Costa Baja Condo Hotel had several of the racers and their crews here. They partied at the Gila Lounge Bar, and they all mentioned how welcomed they felt and they were definitely returning in November for the Tecate Baja 1000, which by the way, will start and finish in Ensenada. The racers love the fact that we have the underground parking. We also had a large gated and guarded lot for their rigs!!

Can’t forget the FISHING!! Word has it, the Yellow Tail are biting like crazy!! Some owners were here last week and went out fishing. After around 50 fish, a lot of different species, they had their fill, and the best fishing trip of their lives!!

All of us at the Costa Baja Condo Hotel hope this Newsletter finds you Happy and Healthy, and ready for your visit to Paradise!!
