This was our first time at Pueblo Bonito, and we enjoyed it. It took 4 tries to get a good room, but we really liked the one we ended up with - big patio, decent view, by the "quiet" pool. It was quite a hike from the entrance, but we liked the walking. Closer to the beach! And better wifi reception. We did enjoy the beach a lot. We never used our air conditioning as it was cool enough the week we were there. All the staff was very helpful and pleasant. Ate at Cilantros the 1st night - what a fabulous setting! And that's what you're paying so much for. It's also a good place for an after-dinner drink (and the only one). Food was OK, except for the squash and shrimp soup, which was amazing! Most days we had lunch by the pool, which was good, if expensive. Went into town for dinners. It was a little farther from good restaurants than I had hoped. I wish we had gone out to Emerald Bay to the beach earlier in the week - it is so beautiful! Next time we will go there more for that gorgeous beach!
