“Another wonderful stay at Sunset Beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

This is our 4th trip to Cabo in 8 years and the last 3 have been to Sunset Beach. Very beautiful, peaceful setting, accomodating staff and beautiful rooms. We brought family to stay in a presidential suite and lived on the patio for breakfast, games, hot tub, reading and chatting all with that stunning view of the Pacific Ocean. Beautiful grounds to walk and enjoy - very clean, well kept. Lovely beach setting. Great workout center. The concierge services were extremely helpful. All the staff in fact were friendly and willing to do what was necessary to make your stay enjoyable. We'll be back next year - with more family members!

Room Tip: Rooms in bldg's 19 - 24 are close the awesome sky pool and great views of the ocean. Rooms in b...

We spent a week here, awesome resort! We had a 2 bedroom in Building 15, excellent location to everything. Resort is built on a hill so cart travel very available, from our location able to walk everywhere. Great selection of pools from quiet to more active. Pool service was excellent. We took advantage of the all inclusive package offered before our arrival, we certainly made the right choice. The Bistro serves an excellent breakfast, wide menu choice. Had lunch and beverages at the pool and went to La Nao nightly for dinner. Othe choices would have been the Bistro or La Frieda (upper scale and not included in the all-inclusive). We celebrated our son's engagement here, making it an extra special holiday! All in all an excellent choice for our time-share trade. Would come back for sure.

This was our second stay.Lovely large property.Multiple pools well developed extensive landscaping ,large rooms.You will enjoy yourself the staff try very hard to please and for the most part do so.No beach vendors or Cabo wildness a very safe family atmosphere.Restaurants are not overpriced and are good.The property is very busy so some minor details in rooms are not perfect like screens offtrack etc.Very minor though and rooms very up to date and well done.Shuttle to pueblo bonito rose takes you to a great swimable beach where you can room charge,haggle with vendors,eat at the office and leave!

Room Tip: Spend more and get a penthouse-3 bedrooms,3 bathrooms and an ocean view jacuzzi.

This was our third trip to Cabo and out third and best place to stay. Rooms are large with ocean views, nice bathrooms and kitchenettes. The pools are awsome. The service is top notch. We will most surely stay there again.

This was our second time here and it was even better than the first. We did the 3 days of all inclusive and had a couple of great meals in town. I can't wait to go back again this fall. I'll never get tired of the views and how nice it is to walk down a beach where it's so peacefull and no one bothers you.

In March and April my wife and I stayed at Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach and meet two great staff members that made or stay even more enjoyable than those we have experienced in the past. The first member of the staff Karla Castro works at the guest registration desk. You will recognize her by her great smile and outgoing personality. From the moment we check in to the hotel she made us feel welcome and she helped with ideal room reservation so we could enjoy the sunsets every evening in our hot tub!! We had to move rooms from a one bedroom to two bedroom for a week. She once again made sure we had a great room and facilitate our move so that there were no problems. Wow customer service, if only we could get this great service at home.

The second employee I would like to recognize is David Alonso Castro. David supervisors the cart drivers that transport the guests from one location to the next. David always made sure that we had a cart available as soon as possible, his staff would always assist us when we moved our room, transport our luggage and all of the groceries that we purchased. He was always helpful and friendly to us and our guest!!! Once again great service Karla and David. Thank you so much

We went to the PBSB for spring break in April and thought we’d share our experience with everyone. This will be a long review because I like to give you all the details that I like to know ahead of time. – so here goes . . . .

After we got thru the shark tank at the airport we took a shuttle to our car rental and we were on our way. The drive to PBSB took us approx 45 minutes but it wasn’t too bad. We did see cops along the way pulling people over who were speeding so watch out. The resort wasn’t hard to find but it’s not really marked along the way. You drive the main road all the way through town and then you’ll drive up the hill. Follow the road around the curves and bends and you’ll eventually come to the resort on the left hand side of the road (big blue sign). Once you turn into the resort you will come up to a guard house that will check your name for clearance. Continue down the road and you’ll come up to another guard who will lift the next gate for you and then you’ll eventually end up at the front desk. Along the way you’ll see the Montecristo Estates on your left hand side on the hill which are the new 3 to 4 bedroom homes that they are selling. Very pretty.

Walking into the reception area you are overwhelmed by their signature fragrance that is for sale at the spa. Hubby loved it and purchased some to take home ($40 bucks for approx 32 oz). Approaching check-in there are 2 lines – 1 for RCI members and 1 for hotel guests. Check-in was pretty simple however rooms are not available until 4:00 pm and they are pretty strict about that. Since we couldn’t get our keys before that we went to get something to eat at the Bistro inside the resort. I’ll write more about food and restaurants later in my review.

After lunch we got our keys to the room we were directed to the 3rd floor where the golf carts are. You need to give the guy at the desk (on the 3rd floor) your room number and then stand in line. There are 2 lines to wait in – the line to the left is for guests who have already been there and are going to their rooms or pools and the line to the right is for guests who have just arrived and need to get their luggage. Once you get on the golf cart the driver will go about 20 yards and will pick up your luggage which is sitting there with everyone else’s who just arrived and then take you to your building. We were in building 33 – room 3311 - which is right above the main pool and had a spectacular view. One of our sons counted the steps down to the pool and there were 80 of them. Not bad, but going back up 80 steps after drinking is kinda rough!

With regards to our room, when you walk in, there is the full kitchen, living room with 1 couch (that’s a trundle bed), 2 chairs, coffee table and your dining room table. Off to one side was the master bedroom with a king bed, a full chaise lounge chair, full bathroom with jet tub, double vanity, shower with amazing water pressure!, toilet (with separate door for privacy) and the double closet with shelves and drawers inside as well as the safe. The other bedroom had 2 full beds, a TV, 2 chairs with a small table, 2 closets and another full bathroom. In the kitchen the fridge was not quite a full size (about 5 feet tall) but was more than enough for us. If you want to have the cleaning ladies wash your dishes there is a note that says you must leave 50 pesos for the service. They had a soap dispenser at the kitchen sink to wash your hands. Nice touch. More than enough dishes, glasses, silverware etc in the kitchen. We only used a portion of them – mostly glasses. There was a porch with a table and chairs as well as 2 lounge chairs. Off the master bedroom there was another small porch with 2 chairs and a small table. Because there were bushes right in front of the porch fence there were lots of mosquito’s in the evenings. Bring some off if you plan on sitting out at night. Oh, and the cleaning ladies keep the screen doors open so every night we killed at least 6 to 8 mosquito’s in the room. However, we had a perfect view of the main pool and the beach from our room.

I have read about some people signing up for the timeshare presentation at the airport and then get a better deal once you get to the resort. Well, we didn’t sign up at the airport but when we went to the Bistro restaurant when we came in we signed up with Martha. Martha was very sweet and gave us $300 F/B credit, the AI rate of $59 per person as well as the discount on all activities. She started at $250 but I asked for $300 and she gave it to me. The girls at the desk by check-in where not very friendly or happy when I told them I wasn’t interested. Martha was MUCH better. We did sign up for another timeshare at the famous Crying Mayan – Grand Mayan Cabos and received $350.00 USD after the long morning. We knew it would be tough getting outta there in one piece but we were up for the challenge!

Back to The Bistro. This restaurant is located on the 4th floor of the main building and overlooks the main pool and beach and is open 24-7. They have just about everything you could ask for. My husband has sushi, our sons had steak tacos, cheeseburger, Thanksgiving Dinner, filet mignon, brick oven pizza, clam chowder, French onion soup and pesto chicken sandwich – all of which were loved by everyone. It can get a little breezy when sitting outside so they have Mexican blankets that they will give you to keep warm. Service was great; our server was very friendly and knowledgeable. I think our bill for a lunch was $80.00 USD. We enjoyed the food so much we came back for dinner!

La Nao restaurant was also very good. We had dinner there on Italian Night and Mermaid Night (Seafood night) and both nights were so good we were stuffed when we left but we thought the Italian was the best. Too many choices each theme night, great drinks and excellent desserts.

Pool food was pretty darn good. They had great chicken quesadillas, club sandwiches, tacos, wings (need double order – you only get like 6 wings), chicken tenders are tempura battered (yuck), burgers, taco salad was really good and the drinks were awesome.

We went out to Crazy Lobster one night off the recommendation of Trip Advisor and it was just O.K. The steak had great flavor to it but it wasn’t cooked enough. Lobster was o.k. and scallops were o.k. Not enough rice and beans but great Guac!! Also went to Quesadilla’s for lunch one day and thought it was pretty good.

The AI plan includes meals at The Bistro, all the Theme-Night dinners at La Nao, the Pool Party on Thursday night, The Manila Bar, Cigar Bar, Lobby Bar, all the Pool Bars, Sunrise Café, Champagne Sunday Brunch and Room Service. It also covers restaurants at their sister properties Rose and Los Cabos but we didn’t visit any of them. Keep in mind that there is a $5.00 surcharge for all room service orders and it took 1 hour for breakfast one morning. We ended up doing the AI rate for 4 nights out of our 7. With the discounted rate of $59.00 per person x 4 people x 4 nights equates to $944.00. We didn’t think that was bad at all since we spent $80.00 bucks on lunch. With having the F&B credit from Martha of $300.00 we used that towards our food bill for the first 3 nights and the $350.00 from the Mayan tour we applied that to our final bill so we were able to take $650.00 off of our total bill at check-out. Pretty good if you ask us!

Also, with the deal that Martha gave us on activities, we did the Carisuva ATV Tour. We have done an ATV tour in the past when we were in Puerto Vallarta but this one far exceeds the PV tour. Our guides were very friendly and they took us on an AWESOME tour!!! Our 17 year old took an ATV by himself, my hubby took another and our 13 year old and I shared one. He and I would switch on driving throughout the tour depending on how difficult the terrain was. The BEST part of the tour was definitely the beach and the sand dunes – hands down! We would do this tour again in a heart-beat.

We spent most of our time at the main pool and had an excellent server by the name of Rodolfo. Luis is a good second but Rodolfo really took care of us. We went up to the sky pool to check it out but it was not our “crowd”. We have teen boys with us and the crowd was “older” and VERY few kids/teens.

Cabanas down at the pool are first-come-first-serve. They have a security guard who walks around the pool each morning, looking for “saved” chairs without anyone sitting in them. My husband would go down in the morning, get our cabana for the day, put his stuff on the chairs and then go into La Nao for breakfast and then come back out approx 30 minutes later. No problem doing this. There are 3 tiki huts on the beach that rarely seemed to be used. No swimming allowed and they do have a life-guard stationed down t here to enforce this. Volleyball net set up every day and some good games to watch.

A few pieces of info that might be helpful to you are . . . . . there are no elevators in the buildings. There are 3 to 4 levels to each building, there are no washing machines in the unit – only laundry service but they are planning on building a laundry facility by the Sunrise Café, a Chinese restaurant and a market/grocery store. Ice cream is in the Sunrise Café – they have about 12 flavors. Calling for a golf cart is easy and they are very quick to respond. We never waited more than 5 to 7 minutes. There are 41 buildings at this resort and 6 different pools. Building 33 and 34 are directly behind the main pool – easy access. There is a salon, spa, gym, chapel, fine art & jewelry store, atm machine, deli & wine shop, medical clinic and tennis courts.

We really had a great time there, although it’s a little out of the way for my taste. Still very close to downtown if you like to walk around and get the true feel for Cabo. We would definitely go back there for the food, atmosphere, accommodations and overall fun! Any questions shoot me a message!

Room Tip: Building 33 and 34 are directly behind the main pool.
