First of all my wife, Kris, and I would like to thank all the TA families for the great Gordo Lele's parties (went to 3) restaurant tips, and sites to see. They all were all so Awesome! We have been coming to Cabo for four years and this was one of the best.
Here goes, we stayed two weeks at the Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach and one week at Pueblo Bonito Blanco Los Cabos. PBSB is beautiful and they upgraded are junior suite room the first week to a 1 Bdrm suite so both weeks we were able to stay in the same room which was great. The service, grounds and people who work there are wonderful. They did shut down two pools due to lack of occupancy at the resort. But you had three other pools to go to, so no big deal.
During our stay at PBSB we did go to Los Barriles and met my brother-in-law and fiancee to go fishing. We stayed at the Palmas De Cortez for two nights. The resort is definitely a haven for fisherman as Kris would say. The rooms are definitely not as plush as PBSB's. We did have great fishing. I caught some dorado's, rooster fish, and a 180 lb. marlin. Struggled for 45 minutes to get that fish. Did release it but my brother-in-law kept his 120lb Marlin and he had it fillet and smoked. Marlin smoked tastes just like ham. OOOh so Good! Girls just sat at the pool area all day and enjoyed their cocktails.
Went to 3 TA gatherings and everyone was wonderful and fun. Javier was so much fun and entertaining. My brother-in-law and his fiancee (Kim) enjoyed the gatherings also. Kim had such fun singing along with Javier.
Restaurants we enjoyed were:
GORDO LELE'S - Ate 5 times there. Carna Asada and Shrimp Tacos were excellent.
MARO'S SHRIMP HOUSE -Ate 2 times there - Bull Dog drinks were fantastic and the shrimps were so large and yummy.
MAMA ROYALES -Ate 2 times there - French Toast with cream cheese, banana's and pecans just melted in your mouth.
MI CASA - Was good but definitely pricey
SALVATORES - Went there when they didn't serve Lasagne but we had Rigatoni and Shrimp Fettucine and their servings were huge. Best Italian food !
PANCHOS - Good Mexican food and drinks. Reasonably priced.
LA FONDA -Good but Pricey. We had Skirt Steak with BBQ Whiskey Sauce.
SENOR SWEETS - Great desserts. Had fun meeting up with New Grama, Lyndi and Marcie. Then we met up with Lyndi again just by chance and shared an icecream.
CILANTRO'S - At Pueblo Bonito Blanco - Great dinners. One night they made our marlin we supplied and they blackened and breaded it. It was soooo gooood.
RIPS - Great place to just hang out!
Went to Todos Santos and had the fantastic margarita at Tequila Sunrise Grill. Have the recipe so we can enjoy that drink at our 4th of July gathering here at home.
Art-N-Beer - What a strange but fun place. Enjoyed a Pina Colada there in a pineapple and the drink just kept coming. She made a pitcher of them. Definitely this is a stop that you should
Cerrito's Beach - Enjoyed seeing the beach where they surf. Enjoyed cocktails there. The road to the beach was like riding on a ATV Trail. Lot of Bumps...
Last week we stayed at Pueblo Bonito Blanco . We had a 1 bdrm suite on the fifth floor, room 516, great view.
Vacation was excellent and can't wait to go back. The TA families we met ROCK! Lyndi, Pammy P, New Grama, Vasnos, Nazclk, Pacific NW, dalababe, Grey 604, Marcie, Summyr and everyone else I missed. Hope to see all of you next year!
