I am an owner at PBS and when I purchased last year, I was given 3 stays before my maintenance began. This was my third time at one of the PB resorts, but my first stay at Sunset. At first I was skeptical about the walking, and proximity to everything based on reviews some had on here. Once I figured out where everything was, it was actually super quick to get around. There are a lot of little short cut stairways and you can alwyas access the golf cart roads if you want to walk instead of waiting on a cart.
I went with a great friend for a girls week, and it was just what we needed! The staff was amazing and helpful, and the room and resort was beautiful. We had a pool right in front of our hotel (bld 41) but once we went to the sky pool, we only used ours at night if we wanted to go in the Hot tub. We LOVED the sky pool. You will definitely need a golf cart to get there, but it is AMAZING! We never had a problem getting a lounge chair and were greeted by the same friendly and outgoing staff each day. We loved Federico and Marcos...Carlos was great too! The music was bumpin and the crowd was superfun! The infiniti pool is beautiful and the views are spectacular. We saw Whales twice from the sky pool during our stay. The service was fantastic and the people are just so friendly and accomodating.
We did the All inclusive, and made sure that we tipped well besides. I had done some "research" before going and found out that even though a portion of the all inclusive goes to the staff, it's not much. So we just made sure to give 5-20$ a day depending on how much our overall bill was. They really give awesome service and should definitely be rewarded for it! The all inclusive is the only way to go in my opinion if you drink. You don't have to worry about how much anything costs and you can truly relax. The restaurants were fabulous as well. La Nao's champange brunch was PHENOMINAL and La Frida was my absolute favorite. Manilla bar was a great place to go hang out around the fire with friends we met on the trip at night and a good place to check emails as the Wi-Fi is free.
The rooms are gorgeous and the views are stunning. We never had a problem getting a golf cart, and just gave a dollar each time they took us somewhere. If we went to town, we just made sure to make arrangements a couple hours before for the shuttle to Rose as they fill up fast. But as long as you plan ahead you will be just fine. Go to the Sunrise cafe in the morning, get your latte and your shuttle ticket for that afternoon...simple. Taxi's are always an option too. It's only 12$ into town. You'll probably want to pay for the Wi-Fi as it's only 70-80$ for the whole week, and I had HORRIBLE cell service. I thought 70-80$ was too expensive. I wish I had done it however. I turned on my data roaming and within 20-30 minutes I had racked up 50$ in charges through Verizon. For the whole week it is definitely worth it...and even though we can get it for half that at home, things are different in Mexico. It will be well worth the money than to come home to a huge cell bill.
My friend did the timeshare tour and got discounts at Cabo Dolphins for us both as well as a 200$ spa credit. It is sooooooooo worth the couple hours to get such a great discount. They give you endless margaritas and a great breakfast plus hundreds of dollars in "stuff"! What's to complain about there?!
As two single ladies going to Cabo we felt very safe. We are in our early 30's and met many people our age while we were there. The resort itself is pretty quiet at night so you'll want to head into town if you want nightlife, but we actually really enjoyed that part of it. We would stay out til 3am one night and the next be in bed at 10pm...up the next morning sweating it out in the gym. The gym is super. Tons of cardio equipment and really nice weights. And with the walking up the hills all the time, you definitely feel better about all of those "boofets" you'll be eating!!
Overall, we had a wonderful time, made friends we will vacation with again, friends we will come visit in Cabo again, and made lasting memories.
Top Picks of the trip... Sky Pool, La Nao, La Frida, Bistro Sushi, the Spa, the Gym, Retro night at La Nao, Champagne Brunch at La Nao, Carnival Night at Rose and Manilla Bar.
One thing! DO NOT talk to the men who tell you that they represent your driver at the airport! They will tell you that it's different now, that it's not a timeshare scam. IT IS!! Just walk past. Your driver/shuttle is outside. My friend got stuck thinking the guy she was talking to was from cape travel. He wasn't. Cape Travel was outside waiting with the clipboard with our names on it. It's definitely a great way to go. It was really cheap to get to the resort and you will meet people that you'll most likely be hanging out with again on your trip.
