Pueblo Bonito Pacifica vs. Solmar Finnistera for 3 day AI

We are meeting friends in cabo the second week of December. Together the four of us have a beautiful condo rented near the marina and are looking forward to spending a week exploring all the great restaurants available in cabo.

However, boyfriend and I are coming in 3 days early and looking to unwind and relax before we meet up with them for 7 days. We've narrowed it down to all inclusive at either Pacifica or solmar finesterra but are stuck on making the final decision.

Finisterra has gotten great reviews in the past 30 days but we don't want to get stuck in an older room that has not yet been renovated. The logistics of which buildings are complete and where construction noise takes place has us a little confused and leary.

Pacifica's zen like reviews are appealing but the mediocre food reviews leave us nervous.

Overall we are looking for a lazy, peaceful, and romantic 3 day getaway at a single resort. Great food, quiet and calm along with updated accommodations are our selling points.

Are we splitting hairs over comparable resorts? Strong opinions from folks that have visited both recently would be greatly appreciated! Also looking for feedback on recent food comparisons.

Thank you!!!

Finisterra isn't a Solmar property but rather, Sandos............and you are right-it's getting nice reviews since the change to Sandos............PB Pacifica is beautiful, but a shuttle ride to town...........not a short ride............the properties on Solmar Beach are a short walk into town.................so I'd think it would depend on if you would like to be close and convenient or away a bit...............some of the best meals in Cabo are in town, rather than at the resorts!

Thank you for the response! Being away from town is preferred as we will be spending a week there after this 3 day getaway.

Pacifica is probably exactly what you want for relaxing before the rest of your trip!

We were at the Pacifica pools for 2 afternoons, when we stayed at PBSB next door. It was 2 year ago, but we found the poolside food and drinks to be really good, lots of variety too. We would love to stay there - it's a great resort!

Finisterra sounds great too,but it's in town. It might not be as relaxing, and it's not adult only. I know your week after will be great, eating out downtown!! So many great choices in Cabo :)

Since you are going to be in town, you Sunset for three days might just be the ticket.

We are at Finisterra now and I believe they have closed down all the unremodeled rooms for remodeling. They are supposed to open at the end of the month. I don't think you would have to worry about getting an unremodeled room.

How do you like the Finisterra? We booked at the Playa Grande, but are thinking to change it to the Finisterra.

L R, we stayed a Pacifica two years ago (you can read my review) and we loved it. It is a very relaxing resort and it basically has its own private beach. We really had a good time there and you definitely won't feel like you are in town. It's a good spot to get away for 3 days since you will be in town for 7.
