    Beautiful property on the Pacific Ocean, there's about 600 units and they all have beach views! It's a massive well manicured tropical oasis, you can pick up a golf cart to take you around. At times the wait is 5+ minutes, so if you don't mind the trek, walk it and enjoy the views.

    Full service amenities with everything you could possibly want. La Frida was my favorite restaurant. It's one of the most popular restaurants in Cabo San Lucas. The spa and gym was ok in size. I did the thermal cure and loved it. There are 6 pools. Sky pool is at the top of the hill with panoramic views of the ocean. If the main pool is packed, go to one of the three villa pools (smaller, quieter and still has a pool bar).

    Did all inclusive for 7 nights and was able to use it at the other 2 properties, Pueblo Bonito Rose and Pueblo Bonita Los Cabos, which are next to each other on Medano Beach. Medano Beach is 3 miles away from the Sunset property, and with all inclusive, you get comp shuttle rides to the other properties. Medano Beach is the hub/hot sopt of Cabo. Sunset is further away and isolated from the crowds, so it's much more private and relaxing.

    We went on a timeshare presentation here and although that ended on a sour note, we were awed by the property and the luxurious grounds. LaFrida restaurant was also amazing! Since its whale season we could see many whales right off shore!

    Huge resort located on the Pacific side of Cabo and built on a hillside. Spacious units ranging from studios to 3-bedroom apartments, and all have breathtaking ocean views. While the resort resides on a gorgeous stretch of beach, swimming in the ocean is prohibited due to the strong waves, but several pools and swim up bars compensate for the restriction. Customer service is outstanding, particularly with the golf cart drivers who shuttle guests up and down the hill. Guests who are not interested in dining in the numerous, fabulous, and affordable restaurants in Cabo (why not?!?) can buy into the hotel's all inclusive meal plan. Like most of the large, luxury resorts in Cabo, PBSB is not in the center of town. The hotel is 10 minutes from the town center and offers free shuttles frequently. Best plan is to rent a car, park at the hotel for free, and enjoy the freedom to explore Los Cabos.

    I researched before I booked the hotel. Everything seems really good - Conde Nast award, beautiful pictures, etc. While I like its zen feel, minimalist design, quietness and everything, we quickly realized that this is not a very convenient place to stay at if you want to enjoy the city and the beach. At this hotel, you cannot swim in this part of the sea. There is a beach there for sunbathing. You will also need a car or cab out to get to the city, or anything that is not provided at the hotel. This place is very secluded and best for a retreat. We moved to Hilton where it is more vibrant, colorful, closer to town and have an infinity pool. There are many places - all of very similar quality/price. The all inclusive deals will probably serve convenience minded people better too.

    I don't really like to travel alone, but I always end up having a great time anyway. Pueblo Bonita Pacifica sounded like a good destination for a solo Labor Day weekend getaway when all I wanted to do was relax and get a tan. The fact that it was far from the more touristy parts of Los Cabos, was adults-only, and non-smoking made it perfect.

    I felt myself start to relax the moment I stepped into the serene lobby, with its open-air ceiling and reflection pool--and the hotel's signature frangrance of lavendar mixed with vanilla. For the next three days I enjoyed the wonderful food at the hotel restaurant and the poolside cafe (the fish tacos and ceviche are fantastic), sunned by both pools, and felt really pampered by the staff who seemed to keep an eye out for me as a solo traveler.

    I already felt that the level of service was very attentive, but when a Class 3 hurricane stormed in on my last day I the staff did an outstanding job of making sure I and all the other guests were safe and kept informed.

    Since then I've been back to PBP and enjoyed each visit just as much as the first. My second trip was with a girlfriend for some R&R. Although I like PBP's minimalist look and low-key atmosphere, I was concerned that my friend might expect something more grandiose. No need for me to worry; she loved PBP and the sister Sunset Beach Hotel so much that she bought a timeshare.

    I've stayed at PB Sunset Beach and Emerald Bay (in Mazatlan), too, and am always impressed by the excellent staff throughout the resorts, from the spa masseuses to the restaurant waitstaff. I think that's a direct result of the hotels' owners. I appreciate that they provide good housing and language classes for their employees. And even though they continue to expand their hotel empire, they are careful of the impact they have on the environment. I love that PBP partners with a local sea turtle conservation group to host a baby turtle release program.

    The only downside to PBP is their timeshare presentation, but you can opt out or turn it to your advantage. For two hours of my time I received enough dining credits and spa credits to take care of my stay. And who knows? Like my friend, you might decide you love PBP and Sunset Beach enough that you'll want to visit every year.

    There's something truly magical about Pacifica. The resort, situated on the Pacific side of Cabo San Lucas, enjoys both spectacular views as well as gorgeous architecture. From the moment one arrives, the staff takes great care to make sure that your every need is taken care of and they often go out of their way for you. Owing to the fact that the resort is holistic and child-free, it is generally quiet and you don't seem to notice other guests unless visiting the pools or other common areas. The food is top notch and their restaurant, Siempre, is highly recommended for both lunch and dinner. The room service options are many, and the breakfast bread and pastry options, are not to be missed. The spa is top notch, and the staff is happy to combine treatments into custom packages. Transportation is offered to Pueblo Bonito's other Cabo resorts, including Sunset Beach. Located in the same complex, this resort is fun to visit for lunch of dinner at one of their three restaurants. In all, there's a reason that people visit Pacifica and keep coming back. It's the closest thing to heaven on earth.

    Very nice, but tooooo big. Golf carts were needed to go anywhere at this place. I stayed at the Pacifica just next door, so I had access to the Sunset also, as well as the Rose, downtown. Was nice to have so many options. The pools at the Sunset were more lively and younger couples!

    Stayed here for four days once. All of the rooms face the ocean - a bit outside of town, but very peaceful. And no children allowed. Nice spa, too

    Absolutely loved Pueblo Bonito! Staying at resorts like these is all about being pampered and boy do they ever accomplish that.

    There's always a friendly staff member ready to get you anything that you need.

    Also this place is huge! And the rooms were equally as big, clean, and very inviting.

    Cheap beer, good mexican food ... dude ... that's what I call an awesome place to vacation!

    I fell in love with this hotel the moment I walked into the lobby--a glass wall provided sweeping views of the pacific. It's located in a very quiet area away from the nightlife and restaurants, but the hotel provides shuttles into town. The circular infinity pool is awesome. You are not allowed to swim in the ocean because of the rip tides, but that means the beach is empty and you feel like you are the only one there.
