Never been to Cabo so we went all inclusive and it is wonderful; no worry about taking money with you and the choices are endless! I thought the food choices and quality were excellent and on par with most standard restaurant faire. I did not expect it to be like Ruths Chris, Flemings or Mortons and it wasnt. Breakfast includes an array of fruits, pastries and hot dishes/meats, yogurt, juices and an omelette station. Lunch menu includes seafood, burges, Mexican faire and dessert. Dinner includes a wide range of wonderful sides offered buffet style and a dinner menu featuring seafood and meat selections served with vegetables and potatoes. Many of the nights are themed so on Italian nights you chose your pasta and the sauces are made to order for you at that station; that night the pizza selection is assembled and grilled at the grill on the patio. Bar service is available for all meals and included a very good red and whit wine as well as mixed drinks and alcohol brands such as Johnny Walker Red or J&B for scotch. The best part of all the meals was eating on the patio about 12' from the waves! Sunsets are breathtaking with full view of Lands End, sound of the waves at your feet, good food, good wine, excellent service and your favorite dinner companion(s).
The room was great, bed linens very nice, beds comfortable, bath towels very coarse and rough, space very good with a balcony overlooking the pool, bay and Lands End. Had to call housekeeping twice because the room was not made up at 3:30pm. Poor TV reception and when you choose English the commentary and commercials remain in Spanish so watched the Super Bowl on mute.
Location on Medano is the best! Walked about a mile south and saw the resorts were elevated above the beach about 12' and recessed inward several yards so it a real workout to get your feet wet! At PBR you walk down the steps and youre on the beach and in the water. The poolside sushi bar is literally on the beach and there are ample poolside lounges and waitstaff to bring meals and appetizers all day...this is also part of the all-inclusive plan! You walk about a mile north and youre on the Marina and into town. The Marina is huge and surrounded by restaurants (Cabo Wabo, Johnny Rockets, Ruth Chris, etc) and stores as well as local offerings. About a block from PBR is the Office, which is well known for its party atmosphere, food and drinks. Its location is the best!
Pool is beautiful, only 4' deep, with area for kids. Lounges start getting saved at 6:30 am, as I could see people putting their towel down from the balcony.
On the all inclusive, you can chose to use the PB Los Cabos facility next door...pool, restaurants, etc. Its a bit more sedate atmosphere than PBR, which has activities at the pool in pm.
Cons: Language. Front desk staff barely spoke English and had to repeat themselves many times for me to understand; an assistant said there were no ocean view rooms ONLY pool or gardens; WRONG! We chose pool because it was closer to the Sea of Cortez and had room 2009 with pool and bay view. Would have had great view of bay with higher room. As the numbers increase,i.e.,2043, 3059, etc., youre toward the front garden area and lose some of your bay views. Could not communicate with housekeeping; they spoke no English.
You can get bottled water from restaurants and bar to sip on and take to your room at night, since bottled water is not included on the plan if it comes from your room. We were advised not to drink the tap water and didnt. Never got sick from the water or food!
At the end of a week stay when we checked out, the front desk person pulled out the account, took my keys and said "You owe nothing". Thats the way to take a true vacation!
Rooms with smaller numbers are closer to the bay; higher rooms have best sweeping views.
