Let's start off with the good stuff: all of the villas are the size of a house, with three bedrooms, 3 baths, and 2 1/2 baths, along with a nice-size pool, and a fully-functional kitchen. The Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Resort is convenient and close by, easily accessible by either the private Montecristo shuttle, or the foot mobile (walking). The view is absolutely gorgeous, and the villas have a stupendous view of either the sunrise or sunset, depending on which way the villa is facing. The maid service is wonderful, and the food is great at the pools and restaurants at the Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Resort.
And now the bad stuff. Luckily, there's really only one thing; the seemingly steroid-injected bugs. I, like most teenage girls (and people), have a reasonable fear of any type of bug. Unfortunately, many of the bugs that I saw in my room were HUGE. I saw 2 tarantula-sized spiders; I think that they were brown recluses, which are not deadly, but I've heard that they pack quite a punch with their bite. I call them invinci-spiders, because the things WOULD NOT DIE, even though my dad hit the larger one with a mop several times. It eventually died, though. There are many moths around, and large ants, as well as some gigantic cockroaches. There are also large beetles and dragonflies... I think the scariest thing that I found was a scorpion. I wasn't sure what type it was (and I wasn't about to get close enough to inspect it), but I think that it was an Arizona bark scorpion, judging from the descriptions on the internet. Supposedly, they aren't supposed to be deadly to an adult, but if a child is bitten, it is recommended that they be taken to the hospital for treatment because of the neurotoxins in the sting. My dad was able to trap the scorion with a cup and cardboard; unfortunately, he cut off one of it's claws in the process.
All in all, the stay was very relaxing, and the view was gorgeous. It's a great family place; it's spacious enough that the kids won't have to complain about being in each other's space, and there are many recreational things to do such as riding ATV's, going on the zipline tour, and riding waverunners on the beach. The hotel can set up many of those activities for you.
