Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Review: Romance and relaxation on the menu!

Part of the Pueblo Bonito group of deluxe Mexican resorts, the Pueblo Bonito Pacifica is the only one of the four PB resorts in Cabo that is purely all-inclusive.

Meals and drinks are included in the rates – of course!

We’d previously holidayed at the Pacifica property and written a Pueblo Bonito Pacifica review.

On our most recent stay at Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach (its neighboring sister property), we were delighted to revisit the PB Pacifica for an evening – touring the resort and enjoying a lovely dinner. (And so we’ve updated this post.)

There have been some changes (good ones) since we first bedded down at the resort.

But the thing that struck us the most is that it still has the same casually elegant air about it.

It’s not a party place, but a place to relax, to stroll the almost-private beach, maybe to play golf (at the Quivira Golf Club) – and to watch glorious sunsets while sipping seriously delicious artisanal cocktails.

Pueblo Bonito Pacific rooms

The original accommodations are in 154 rooms, as opposed to condo-style units with kitchens or kitchenettes, which is the case with the Pueblo Bonito’s three other resorts in Cabo (we’ve stayed at all of them).

We stayed in a deluxe oceanview room like this

Rooms are 350 square feet in size; two-room ocean-view suites have 689 square feet of space.

Sunlight filters through onyx accents inlaid in guestroom doors. Beds have dreamy feather tops. And terraces feature solid native wood furniture.

Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Towers

The resort also has a more exclusive “hotel within a hotel” building, called The Towers (which opened in late 2016).

The 47 club-level rooms and suites come with personal butlers who offer siesta turn-down service among other perks.

Pueblo Bonito Pacifica restaurants

The resort has three restaurants onsite for dinner – Siempre for Mediterranean-style dishes, Pescados for sushi and sashimi, and Peninsula, Pacifica’s newest restaurant.

The Peninsula Bar at Pueblo Bonito Pacifica is a great place for cocktails before dinner.

We started our evening with a tequila tasting at sunset – downing shots of Blanco, Reposado and Anejo (aged at least a year), finishing of with Mezcal. It was fun to try the different recommended accompaniments with each – lime and salt with the Blanco, but orange and chili salt with the Reposado (a cool taste twist).

And then it was on to the Peninsula for fresh fish and organic veggies.

Shiny new Pueblo Bonito amenities

As part of the expansion, the Pueblo Bonito Pacifica also added a new fitness center (a fabulous huge ocean-view space), along with a VIP lounge for guests of The Towers.

Luxury Pueblo Bonito all-inclusive resort

We’re not usually fans of all-inclusives – at least those all-inclusives where cocktails are watered-down drinks and meals are conga lines of all-you-can-eat buffets.

But the Pueblo Bonito Pacifica met all our hotel standards.

Looking back at the resort from the pool

For adults-only and with a large spa, the Pueblo Bonito Pacifica focuses on romance and relaxation.

So, yes, you can sip all the Italian bubbly or pina coladas you want.

But there’s no loud pool music or after-dark nightclub.

It’s just a very nice mellow place to enjoy a sun-and-sand vacay in Cabo San Lucas…

What to pack for your Cabo vacay

1) Cute and comfy sandals | Do your tootsies a favor and check out these fab travel sandals for both men and women that we’ve sussed out!

2) Good camera | You won’t want to miss those great shots of your trip. We love our Sony A600 mirrorless camera – it’s small enough to throw in your purse or backpack, but it takes awesome photos!

3) Beach gear | Flattering bathing suit? Big-brimmed sun hat? Good sunglasses? (We’re a fan of Ray-Bans). Roomy beach bag for your sunscreen, water bottles, iPad, magazines and books? You’ll need these for the beach and pool.

Pueblo Bonito looks lovely, the Fire and Ice Martini Bar would be perfect for taking in the sunset!

This looks like a lovely resort and I've stayed at many in Mexico. I'm not a fan of all- inclusives because I feel that that they keep visitors from exploring the real culture of the area, which includes food. It's understandable when it's in a remote area but I'd prefer cooking classes given by locals or eating at a street or beach stall to having to eat at a resort every day.

Wow! I've done the all-inclusive thing a couple of times in Cuba and in the Playacar region of Mexico and although I quite enjoyed it, there was definitely that sense of after-dark nightclub and watered down drinks etc but this looks SO sophisticated and I've been keeping Cabo San Lucas on the list of places I want to travel to in the future. Looks like a wonderful resort!

Yes, Pueblo Bonito Pacifica doesn't fit the mold of what we usually think of as an "all-inclusive" resort. Actually, we're now discovering many more "all-inclusives" that are really wonderful places. They happen to be all-inclusive because they're in remote destinations, so food is part of the package. Like Baraza Resort & Spa and andBeyond Mnemba Island Lodge, both in Zanzibar. Anyway, you'll like Cabo when you visit :-).
