Location and the annoyingly constant timeshare sales push are the only negatives that we found about this place. The property is beautiful and well manicured. My wife and I stayed in a junior suite and had no complaints about the room. From our balcony, we could see a great deal of the property as well as the ocean. Housekeeping were plenty attentive.
Part of the beauty of the property is that it is comprised of several buildings planted amongst wandering paths and plenty of landscaping along a fairly steep hillside. For those who can't handle the incline or walking distance around the property, chauffeured golf carts are a phone call away.
The restaurants on the property are hit or miss. We preferred to go into town to eat. La Frida is very good, but I wouldn't make a special trip into the resort to go to the others. The coffee shop is also quite mediocre, but they do have coffee.
The location is the biggest drawback. Though close to the marina and downtown Cabo, it is about 2 miles of twisting, mountain roads, making a walk to town only for the most determined. This is unfortunate since there is a lot of stuff to see and several restaurants to try on that side of town. There is a shuttle to Pueblo Bonito Blanco, which is closer to town on the Sea of Cortez, but to get there, you ride right through the marina area, passing by a lot of those places. By the time you get there, you are a 2 mile hike to the west side of town.
Don't get me wrong, though, the shuttle is a nice touch. Without it or a rental car, I wouldn't go back to Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach.
One bonus about this place and its location is that it attracts a less rowdy crowd. The party crowd seems to head toward Blanco or Rosa, which is just fine with me. That isn't to say that there weren't any bikini clad sunbathers, but the overly medicated dance club atmosphere was elsewhere.
Finally, this place is a timeshare resort, and with that comes the annoying sales presentation. The presentation itself was actually one of the more pleasant we have been to. Unfortunately, you will be presented with the opportunity to go on this "tour" at least 5 times while you are there. Irritating, but more like a mild sunburn rather than a salt and lemon juice in an open wound.
