My parents own a timeshare here so I stay frequently. It is beautiful for such a large resort. Looking up the hill at all of the buildings, I often wonder what percentage of the building is occupied at any one time, because it never seems overly crowded at the pools.
If you tell the staffs what you would like to make your stay better, they will do everything they can to accommodate you. I don't have children and enjoy quiet, and they seem to put me in a spot without a lot of families and noise. I *love* that there is an adults-only pool. To this end, it's also incredibly easy to get to sister-resort Pueblo Bonito Pacifica, which is entirely adults-only. Hop on a free shuttle and you're there in 10 minutes.
The buffets/restaurants are generally quite good, but I don't recommend getting an all-inclusive deal because there are *so* many excellent restaurants downtown (cab ride $10) that are cheaper and more carefully prepared. I generally only eat one or two meals at the resort in a week (however, the guacamole and fish tacos poolside are to die for so don't miss those.)
It's also worth it to go to a grocery store in town. As others have mentioned, the shop on site is hugely overpriced for the convenience.
One year we rented a car and found it was a bit of a headache. There is not a lot of parking at the resort, unless you use the valet, which is another charge. When the small lots are filled, they're filled, and if you come back at night, you may be forced to pay for the valet fee. I don't recommend having a car unless you're going to explore Baja more.
The rooms are huge. We have a suite with two bedrooms on either side of the living room / kitchen area and it's bigger than my city apartment. The bathrooms are luxurious and by all means get a balcony with a hot tub. Night time in a hot tub overlooking the impossibly long vista of the ocean is about as relaxing as it gets.
The spa is LOVELY. I've gotten facials and massages and they're always excellent.
I'm always impressed with the gorgeous old-Spanish lobby, the landscaping (and flamingo friends) and the general upkeep of this place over the past ten years. Next year my husband and I will be staying with another couple and I couldn't be more excited to share this spot with friends.
PS I'm a big believer in tips to everyone. Wages in Cabo are awful, and the staff here is so excellent, I just can't imagine not giving them something extra. Outside of the tourist areas, Cabo is very poor. We are lucky to be so privileged to have vacations, and I think it's important to be aware of that. People don't forget when you tip and you tend to get even better service, so do the right thing!
