Such an incredible time! We’ve had a lot of stress in our lives lately and took this trip with incredible friends to celebrate my husband’s birthday, the Super Bowl, Mardi Gras, and Valentine’s Day. All the staff at the resort were amazing. We especially enjoyed the crew at Cibola which was our go-to spot. The environment was relaxed with a great view, conveniently located to our villa, and the staff made the best drinks at the resort! All of them (Alfonso, Felix, Marco A., Giovan, Julian, Bruno, and Karen V.). Ask for a spicy Bloody Mary with bacon…you won’t regret it! Can’t wait for our next trip back! Also, check out The After!

We stay for multiple weeks every year. We love this place and so do our friends. Our butlers, Raul Galeana and Raul Cardenas, were so helpful and considerate. Our housekeeper, Flor Vitay, kept our villa incredibly clean. She made beautiful arrangements on our counter tops and beds. Top notch service.

Our all-inclusive week at Montecristo Estates was wonderful, with just a small number of disappointments, all pretty minor in terms of the overall experience. The villa was generally in good repair. Upholstery was in very good to excellent condition. Bathrooms were spacious with lots of wardrobe storage. The beds and bedding were very comfortable. Our main disappointment was that the dryer in the unit was not working (and is clearly ready for replacement). We also experienced poor communication with staff prior to our trip and the lobby staff were less than helpful. We also did not appreciate being pounced on by timeshare salespeople while checking in. Another disappointment was the atmosphere at the pools at Sunset Beach resort. They were crowded and noisy. We discovered that the pool at the complex housing the spa and Cibola restaurant were quiet and pleasant with attentive waiters who kept the food and drinks coming as we basked in the sun. The highlights of our stay were (1) the views, (2) the infinity pool and hot tub in the units, (3) and the food and beverage service. Here are three views from our unit, Villa 60. Initially, we thought being farther up the hill would be better, but the views and accessibility to the other facilities made this location a great spot. The pool and hot tub in our villa were maintained beautifully, and of course had fabulous views. We were fortunate enough to be in Cabo during whale migration. We spotted at least dozens (probably well over a hundred) spouts and leaps from our balcony and living room. We thought the food was ample, with good variety and almost always delicious. We enjoyed the Sunday brunch at Sunset Beach, as well as the Argentina night and seafood night. We went to all of the restaurant venues at least once and were generally more than satisfied and sometimes absolutely delighted. We had great service most of the time. Special kudos to Jared and Felix at the clubhouse pool. They made us feel special. A minor but significant annoyance is that the restaurants at Sunset Beach have their menus only on line, but as Montecristo visitors, we could not get wifi at Sunset Beach and for those of us with data plans that allowed viewing the menu online, viewing on a phone is tedious. Wait staff would bring a tablet for us, but a physical menu was welcome when it was offered at the Clubhouse and the Golf club restaurants. We rented a golf cart for the week because we did not want to fuss with calling for a ride every time we wanted to leave our villa. It was well worth it. We did not anticipate the challenges that an older member of our family would have getting into a 6-passenger cart. The step up was too high for her short legs. The free transport carts at the resort have built-in smaller steps that she easily managed. We took the free shuttle to Pueblo Bonito Rose resort. Easy. Had a nice lunch at Cilantro and walked the beach. Plenty of sun loungers were available on the beach and around the pool. All the same, at the end of the day, we all agreed that one beach visit was enough. We were happy with the pools and hot tubs available to us in our villa, at the clubhouse, and (less so) at Sunset Beach. I recommend it. Also, watch videos people have posted on YouTube before you book.

I just got home from 6 days in Cabo on a girls trip. We stayed at Montecristo and it was perfect. 3 bedrooms 3 1/2 baths, private pool, beautiful views, It was so nice and relaxing. The service was excellent as well. Our concierge Karen was on top of everything and we had chefs cook in our villa one night , which was really fun. I can’t say enough about how great our experience was. Housekeeping, shuttle drivers, bartenders, you name it., it was all outstanding. I would definitely go back. Shout out to the entire staff, thank you from the Salt Lake City girls!!

Our personal concierge (Raul Galeana) was terrific. He took care of all our needs from dinner reservations to transportation needs. He was constantly checking in person or text several times a day. He is the best we ever had taking care of us. The Montecristo Villas have a great floor plan with 3 bedrooms with en-suites and 2 half baths. The landscaping is very well done and maintained. The villas are fully equipped with daily maid service. The private pool is very enjoyable overlooking the Pacific Ocean. We did not use the spa but it is well maintained. The employees are all very pleasant and want to serve. Pueblo Bonito is a large property. They have vans and golf carts to help you get around. Luis is a van driver that always has a smile 😃 and is very nice. The Quiver golf course is very nice. The fairways and greens are in excellent shape. The views are breathtaking. Good luv and make sure you take extra balls. They rent clubs. The down side is the deferred maintenance. It’s a lot of small things. They are remodeling them and it takes time. They were hit with a hurricane that slowed things down. They are working on it. The weather is great

Our villa was nice and very clean but outdated and lighting was very bad in bathrooms. Like you had a hard time seeing your stuff ...THe check-in process was ok our concierge not very informative. I would have thought they would have been a little more friendly We were supposed to have a butler when we checked in and got her late and our butler did not do a good job at all (Karen). we found out we were supposed to have a butler with the villas from a guest at the pool. She hardly checked in with us. She didnt do much for us. Our view was amazing. We were in the Phase II villas, and we had a great view. - We liked POOl 17 the best. IT was nice and relaxing, view was lovely and our waiter Ishmiel and Ignacio were awesome and super attentive. Always asking us what we needed. The grounds on all the resort were lovely. The pool by the beach at sunset beach was nice but super crowded and the chairs were all jammed together, and music was loud. But Elezar was a a great waiter also. -The food was fine, mediocre. The food at the pools was nothing special. Fellini's you pay and upcharge and it was not worth the upcharge at all. Super slow service. The breakfast at Bistro was good and off a menu. we actually found all the food was very bland and wish we had packed some spice to bring along. Cibola the pasta was sooooo bland and the service was not good. We ate at the Market one night and the Mexican station was pretty good, and we had a waiter Jesus who was great also and super attentive to us. The Market had a great selection of differetn places to eat. ***Our best meal and best service was at La Farida. we ate there the last night, and you pay an upcharge, and it was well worth it. The food was awesome and flavorful. The service was amazing, and our waiter Noe was super attentive. IT was our favorite meal of the whole trip. And the lobby bar has super good drinks
