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 our fourth time to this resort. We love to come here and reset/recharge. We stayed in the tower last time and reserved it again this time. We were pleasantly surprised to have Feliciano as our butler again. He is the best! He checked on us every morning and made sure everything we needed was taken care of. Request him if you can!!!
Also, be sure to see Ofelia at the Partidos Bar!
We have been Pueblo Bonito owners since buying a time share in 2011. We have enjoyed stays at other PBs in Mazatlan and Cabo. All have been sensational.
We were disappointed in the newest—Pacifica. We chose it because it was for adults only. I will itemize a few details on our two-week visit.
After airport shuttle got us to Pueblo Bonito Pacifica, we found the entry was not as grand as on our other PB arrivals. The architecture itself was not as impressive as at other resorts. On checking in, we were told our reservation was lost. They did figure it out, but we wasted 45 minutes while checking in. Because of my age (86) we had requested a ground floor room near a pool. With the misplaced reservation, they gave us a temporary room which will change to a ground-floor unit the next day. This was OK, but it meant we could not unpack totally for a day.
Some early impressions and observations of Pacifica: There are many steps on property. No golf cart rides as in other PBs. There are only 3 restaurants on the property, and Siempre is the only one that serves breakfast. We shuttled to nearby Sunset Beach PB for meals, 5 times, because of the variety offered there. For even more variety we took $14 taxi rides to town to dine out 4 times. Cabo has many excellent restaurants.
I used a walker and cane for getting around. I missed the golf cart rides of other PBs.
Our biggest gripe was the pool temperature. The water was frigid, almost as if they tossed ice in it. I had to avoid swim exercise for the whole two weeks. An attractive swim-up bar was almost useless. People were not about to sit on underwater bar stools (in the icy water) while having a drink
The PB landscape here is a combo of palm trees and incongruous cacti. Odd combination. Other PBs are more beautiful and have such attractions as koi ponds, lush tropical gardens and wild life on display.
On the bright side, rooms are nice. Service is up to par with friendly folks being helpful. Pacifica is not recommended for the handicapped and/or elderly.There was no pressure to buy or upgrade time shares.
Siempre’s Mother’s Day special brunch was big improvement over daily breakfast. A glorious buffet offered the works and plenty of fancy pastries. This resort is popular for weddings, and there were four of them on the beach during our stay. It can get very breezy at this resort.
We will choose other Pueblo Bonito properties next time.
Many visitors gave glowing reports on TripAdvisor. They should try the other locations for comparison.
Pacifica was fantastic! I can’t say enough awesome things about Feliciano our Butler! Her was there everyday to help in anyway her could! Our was special because of Feliciano! We will see you next year for sure! Our new vacation spot forever! Weather was beautiful, relaxing was undeniable! The hotel was fabulous! After years of going to Mexico in Cancun, we found our new vacation spot! We miss you already!!
My wife and I traveled to Pueblo Bonito Pacifica June 15th - June 22nd, and let me tell you it did not disappoint! Once we arrived at the hotel we were greeted right away and our bags were handled, we received strawberry mojitos (which were delicious & refreshing) and shown where to check in. We got to the resort right around 3pm and the check in process was smooth and fast, also our room was ready immediately, which was nice. You do have to sit down with folks at the resort who give you the AI wristband, restaurant lists/recommendations, and also tell you about things to do in & around the resort (like excursions & such). We were pretty tired from traveling and just wanted to bypass this step, which they were fine with, they just asked us to come back down the next day. We popped into our room 1146, which was basic, but was clean, tidy, and had a great view.
We went right down to the pool and found seats without a problem by the quieter pool (the one without the swim up bar). There we meet Alan, who was taking care of food and drinks for our section. Let me tell you, Alan is the best!! He took time to get to know us right away, asking about where we were from and how our day was going. Our experience with him that first day made us purposefully sit in his section anytime we were down at the pool. On my birthday he rounded up a gang to come sing me happy birthday, and then made the whole pool sing along with him. Great job Alan, you really made our trip that much better.
I did see some reviews mentioning that it was windy and cold, from what we heard all of Cabo was late to the heat this year. Although at times it was windy, it helped cut the heat and didn't make anything unpleasant whatsoever for us.
All of the restaurants on the resort are great, we ate at Siempre, Pacifica, and the sushi restaurant (don't remember the name). Pacifica was our favorite for lunch, they had great civeches, tacos, and the mango gazpacho was awesome. For dinner our favorite spot was Siempre. We had Alfredo as our waiter almost every night. He like Alan took time to get to know us, he helped celebrate both our anniversary and my birthday (again rounding up a crew to sing to me), and made the whole experience at both Siempre and the resort that much better, great job Alfredo!!
The gym at the resort is also amazing, it overlooks the ocean and has a great view from any spot in it. All next machines & equipment. They had classes you could attend throughout the day, from Sunrise Yoga, to spin, and I'm sure some others that we did not participate in.
We did also venture up to Sunset on two occasions, it seemed like a great place for families, and almost had a small city like feeling to it. It did also make us glad that we were staying a Pacifica because from what we saw, it seemed like it would be harder to relax with the crowds and kids.
We also went into town on a few occasions, it's a short 10ish minutes to downtown, and is about a $10-$15 taxi ride which wasn't bad.
Overall I would say that this is the best resort we have stayed at in Cabo (we also stayed at Villa del Palmar, and Dreams in years past, although great we probably wouldn't return to either of those). Pacifica on the other hand, we would go back in a heartbeat. From the layout of the hotel, friendliness of the staff, and overall high quality of service, it really made our vacation truly amazing.
Just want to give a big shout out one more time to both Alan (at the pool), and Alfredo (at Siempre), for helping take our vacation to the next level.
Great job Pueblo Bonito Pacifica, we will definitely be back in the future!!
I just returned from our trip last week and I have to say this place was 5 Star treatment all the way.
This is an all inclusive- Adult only Zen-type resort. This Double gated hotel and spa is nestled up against the mountains at the southern pacific end of Cabo. First Off, we were greeted by amazing staff with cherry mojitos, upon check in we were given a little spill about booking tours on their other properties. We were then taken on a guided tour to the VIP lounge, offered drinks and then walked personally to our room, Shown all the amenities.
After settling in, our guide/butler Feliciano, personally brought us soft drinks to our room, suggested dinner at a restaurant Siempre and made us reservations.
He then checked in with us every day to make reservations and or suggest dinner places.
I felt as if he was our personal guide and made sure we had anything and everything we needed.
The hotel is super quiet at night which is great, no kids, no clubs. All you really hear is the Ocean waves crashing on the shore.. it's really like no other place I have ever been to. They have fire pits at night going that you can sit around and listen to the ocean and enjoy drinks. Human size Jenga games.
Literally the only negative thing I could say is that the stairs by the pool aren't lighted and if you wern't looking, someone could get seriously hurt.
Breakfast buffet and omelet bar is amazing.. the lady working the omelettes is amazing.. Super helpful and sweet.
The steak house at Quivera is seriously one of the best steaks I have eaten thanks to Feliciano.
The main pool has a swim up bar. Although Amado the bar tender was Not that friendly.. There is one other pool and a Jacuzzi type pool. Ample room with nice warm towels. The pool people walk around offering watermelon peices with Tajin chili. So amazing.. Full lunch is served to your chairs also.
Rooms and showers were impeccable. The showers have a bench and a waterfall type shower head.. Amazing..
I do have to mention how impressed I was with Feliciano. This man goes above and beyond the call of duty. He truly knows what it takes to accommodate the guests of this hotel. Not sure who trained him but whomever is in charge really knows how to run a hotel. Feliciano was truly amazing and kind hearted. I truly hope this review does NOT go unnoticed and that he gets the praise he truly deserves.
Karla was great at check out as well!.. Adrian was a great concierge also.. as well as the door guys that greet you out side.. All Amazing!
Amado at the pool bar was definitely not friendly..
This was one of the nicest places I have stayed at and I will return again.
Thank you to Feliciano! You are amazing.. and truly one of a kind..
