Just back from Cabo where we stayed at the Pueblo Bonito Blanco. The location of this hotel is excellent, on a beautiful swimming beach looking out to the arch. About a 10 min walk into town, and even closer to some wonderful restaurants on the beach.
The lobby is beautiful, with a large fresh flower arrangement that fills the air with a scent of lavendar. The cleanliness is beyond anything I have ever seen in a hotel. There are many staff members that start cleaning before the sun comes up and are seen working hard through the day polishing and sweeping. I never passed one of these staff members without recieving a smile, hola or good morning...
All staff from the front gate to the waiters and the maids were very efficient and we felt truly looked after. They all seemed very happy working here and many had been there for years. We watched how frequent visitors greeted the staff they knew. (like old friends).
The room we had was spacious. Double beds however, which wasn't too bad, as they were pretty comfortable. It is equiped with blender, toaster, fridge, stove top and microwave. Lots of cupboard and drawer space. One thing we did notice is that if you are not a timeshare owner, you may be asked to move to accomodate owners. We were upgraded and then told we might have to move. When I told them we wouldn't mind having the room we booked, as long as we didn't have to move, the desk said no problem, you can stay. We ran into a few people who had to move, but I would suggest making that clear on check in. The view by day and night from these rooms is lovely.
The pool is not as large as it looks in the pictures, but was not ever crowded even though the hotel was full. The only thing was is that many people reserve loungers by throwing towels down, and never show up. There are many loungers on the beach too, and we were never short of a seat. Don't bring towels, the hotel towels can be used anywhere you go.
We dined at Cilantros the first night as it was dark when we arrived. The food was very good, and the restaurant offered to make anything our kids wanted, as it was seafood night, which they don't eat. On Tues, we went to the fiesta at the hotel, and I would highly recommend this. The food was fabulous (a buffet.) and the dancing (authentic Mexican) was great. Reserve the day before and get a great table. Room service is very reasonable and the food was also very good. You can also order food and drinks around the pool or on the beach. Happy hour 2 for 1 is from 2-4 pm. Try a Mai Tai or a Miami Vice.
There is internet access for 3 dollars American for half hour, and we let our girls have a go when they were in complete msn withdrawl.
Our biggest concern was wondering if this hotel was child friendly. We have three kids ages 9, 11 and 13. The particular week we were there, we did not see many kids at our hotel. The staff went above and beyond to see that our kids felt welcome and had a good time. There are a few kids activities each day, and they really enjoyed the games. They give free icecream and drinks for prizes. We noticed a lot more kids around when we were leaving :(
We used the Rose pool a few times. It was great for tossing a ball. It is much larger. We felt quite at home going between the two.
The hotel, staff and service were perfect. What was not, was the time share push... we did not go see the Sunset as we had decided not to go on any time share talks (our vacation time is too valuable) You are able to take the shuttle but it is pretty high pressure to attend the timeshare talk. If you do not wish to do timeshare, skip the welcome package... We were approached for about three days, our room was called and then we finally said we had given someone a deposit already, they left us alone. The timeshare salespeople were all friendly though but I would have to say this was the only thing that bothered us at this hotel.
This is a long review but I was thankful for other reviews I have read here. Do not even hesitate to book this unbelievable hotel. We definitely preffered it to the feel of the Rose.
