The 154-room, adults-only Pueblo Bonita Pacifica is more focused on wellness and its strengths as a retreat than most other Cabo party hotels. Relaxation and self-renewal are the focus here, fostered in part by a no-cash-needed (or accepted) policy that makes decision making easier. The resort has beachfront swimming pools, five restaurants that range from the Mexican-Mediterranean Siempre to the sushi-centric Pescados, a full-service spa and beauty salon, and a variety of wellness activities, which make it suited for couples’ romantic getaways and girlfriends’ spa retreats alike.
In the Area
When a resort is truly all-inclusive and offers so many activities, dining options, and wellness services, there’s little incentive to leave. There are tequila and wine tastings led by an award-winning sommelier, and, on the healthier front, tennis courts and daily activities such as water aerobics, power walks, dance lessons, and beach yoga. The staff can arrange private dinners on the beach if guests tire of the five onsite restaurants, or the concierge can make reservations at the restaurants of its sister resorts, Pueblo Bonita Sunset Beach and Pueblo Bonita Rose near downtown Cabo San Lucas.
How to Get There
This was hands down one of the best experiences I’ve had at an all inclusive.
Pros: Food is INCREDIBLE. (Also no need to pay extra for their special menu items, all included food was excellent in my opinion). Pool and ocean views are wonderful and the rooms were also clean and nicely appointed. The spa was also a real treat if you have the time to go and I can’t say more about how awesome the breakfast at the golf course is (up charge for dinner but included for breakfast and lunch). Service was also really great throughout the resort, we did not have any issues there.
Cons: they did try to sell us on spending time at a timeshare presentation when we first arrived and at one other point during our stay. We didn’t end up doing it but many couples who did said they had a pretty negative experience as you might expect with those things if you aren’t truly in the market for it. They were offering a $400 resort credit which was tempting but I’m glad we ultimately said no and enjoyed our time on the beach.
I would recommend this place highly. It’s in line with (if not better than) Zoetry or Royal Hideaway resorts.
Currently on our last night staying at Pacifica for a much needed vacation from work. We visited the sister resorts, Sunset and Rose, and although nice, were much more crowded and Pacifica’s adults only atmosphere is relaxing and quiet. The highlight of our trip was Sibihd, our server at the pool for the last 3 days. Kind, attentive, and easygoing. The staff at Peninsula and Siempre were wonderful as well, but Sibihd made our trip! We will be back!
In my opinion, this was a decent hotel, but by no means is it a luxury resort in terms of service and property maintenance for these reasons:
1. We found a lot of small bugs on all the countertops in the room. (Nightstand, TV stand, small table, etc.) The furnitures are a darker brown, so you may not immediately see the bugs, but they are there.. I’ve been to several resorts and understand that bugs are inevitable, but I don’t think the amount of these bugs are “normal.” I also believe that several guests have experienced this if you search for “ants” on all reviews. I spoke to the guy @ the check-in desk and he immediately said “Oh, don’t worry. These are the little ants of Los Cabos.” Although they are likely harmless ants, I was a bit taken aback when he came to that conclusion before putting in the effort to confirm that these bugs were in fact, harmless. I explained to him that I was not comfortable staying in the room, but he said there were no more rooms available. That’s understandable, but if I was in customer service, I’d look to see when the next available room would be and offer the switch when it became available. I asked the guy to let us move when the next room becomes available, and he agreed. After he agreed, I guess he just assumed that the issue was settled and did not offer to send someone to look or clean the countertops.. so I asked and someone was sent up to clean. Basically, the guy did not offer any resolutions of his own and I as the guest had to seek out and ask for resolutions myself.
2. Check-out was unplanned. I’ve never been to a hotel or resort where you had to actually check-out. Normally, u can just call it in or you just leave the hotel and you get your bill later (if any.) This resort requires an actual check out, and it took 10+ minutes for the one guest in front of us to be checked out bc there was only one front desk employee. From an operational standpoint, if I required guests to actually check out, I’d make sure that the front desk was staffed sufficiently because you know when your guests are leaving and when their rides are coming, so I feel like a resort that’s been established for this long should be able to streamline this kinda stuff better.
3. There is no pool/beach service for food after 5-5:30. The only food option past this time is room service and dinner reservations that have a dress code requirement. This is extremely inconvenient because some people may still want to be at the pool at this time and they may be hungry. I’ve never been to a resort where casual food wasn’t easily accessible. several workers told us different information on what kind of foods are available, etc. I feel like all staff should be aware of all basic/common guest questions, but they are not.
4. The ladies that are at the desk to give you your AI risk bands are on their phone a lot. I had to interrupt them for them to look up for me to ask a question.
5. There were water bottles in the hot tub. I’ve always been at a resort where there are people that maintain pool areas throughout the day, but I don’t think this resort does.
1. The food was really good.
2. The yoga activity in the morning was really good.
3. The drinks were good.
I came here for the first time with two friends and I was cery pleased with our stay. Beautiful Resort! I was suprised by the size of it, it’s huge with a lot to do! Staff is super friendly and the food is great! Angel helped us check in to our room, and he was super friendly and helpful.
This was our first time at adults only resort, and we all loved it. It was not crowded at all, poolside lounge chairs were always available. You don't have to wake up at crack of dawn to reserve a chair. Food was good. We loved the weekend breakfast buffet. the pool was big and clean. the bathrooms could use a little more light. Rooms were nice and clean. We were also be able to use the neighboring Pueblo Bonito Sunset resort pools and restaurants. Use the free shuttle service to go to Pueblo Bonito Sunset, and Pueblo Bonito Rose resort, which was located in downtown area, about 15 minutes walk from the mall and pier.
