Yes, but it’s an option.

We recently stayed at the Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Resort & Spa in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. And you can choose to buy an all-inclusive plan – or not.

3 different plans

There are three Pueblo Bonito all-inclusive plans at the Sunset Beach resort:

1) Deluxe
2) Premium
3) Platinum

We had the “Deluxe” package – and we were quite happy with this.

Who can buy the plans?

Any guest can buy the Deluxe plan.

You have to be an “owner” to buy the Premium or Platinum plans.

(As is common in Los Cabos, the Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach, Rose and Blanco resorts are time-share resorts. Visitors may buy the use of a vacation week, for example, and then become “owners.” All the unused time is rented out like a hotel to non-owner guests.)

Minimum purchase per plan:

Deluxe: You only have to buy the Deluxe plan for a minimum of 3 consecutive nights.

Premium and Platinum: The Premium and Platinum plans are only available for a 7-night minimum.

Pueblo Bonito all-inclusive rates per plan

The daily USD rates set out below are the p.p. rates quoted to us, valid as of April, 2021.

However, we understand that if you purchase the plan in advance, before you arrive at the resort, the cost may be less. That was the case when we stayed at the resort. The advance rates in January, 2020, for example, were about half the rates set out below.

Note: The resort can, of course, change the rates and terms at any time :-).

For the most-up-to-date rates (or to find out what discounts are available), you’re best advised to call the Pueblo Bonito reservations center. (Contact information is provided at the end of this post.)

Deluxe plan wine:

As well as the above alcohol, the Deluxe plan includes a selection of four wines – two reds (Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon) and two whites (Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay) from Spain. Personally, we liked the Cab Sauv the best.

We’re mainly wine drinkers and don’t usually have cocktails before dinner, so if anything, we wish the Deluxe plan had a greater wine selection, with some higher quality wines.

Some of the top restaurants have an extra charge.

LaFrida is one of the restaurants with a surcharge under the Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach all-inclusive Deluxe plan.

Details: All-inclusive Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Resort & Spa

The Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach is a popular resort in Cabo San Lucas.

All guests in a suite must buy the same plan. (You can’t be on the plan but have your husband, for example, decide not to be on it.)

The plan begins at noon on the day you check in and ends at noon on the day you check out.

Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Resort and Spa All-inclusive

No plan?

Suites at the PB Sunset Beach have kitchenettes.

Each has a fridge, cooktop with two burners, microwave, coffee maker and toaster.

There are several Pueblo Bonito all-inclusive plans. What's the right one for you?

So you don’t have to buy an all-inclusive plan.

You can stock up on groceries and make breakfast and some lighter meals if you like being self-sufficient. Plus, Cabo has some great restaurants, and it would be a shame not to try at least one of them.

Where to eat in Cabo?

Love Italian food? | Check out 3 of the best Italian restaurants in Cabo San Lucas

Farm-to-table dining | You must experience Flora Farms near San Jose del Cabo (it dishes up yummy farm-to-table eats!)

Then again… Maybe you don’t want to take a taxi to Costco or Walmart and schlep groceries, alcohol and bottled water back. Maybe you don’t want to cook.

And it does take some effort to leave the resort to eat out – buggy to the lobby and a taxi to a restaurant in town. It’s soooo much easier just to stay at the resort and eat in.

Bottom line: Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Resort & Spa all-inclusive

How to decide whether to get the Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach package or not?

Tip

Consider getting the Deluxe plan just for the first 3 or 4 nights of your stay.

This way, you can try some of Cabo’s excellent restaurants during the rest of your stay!

Do you buy the all inclusive packages through the hotel at Pueblo Bonito Sunset beach?

Janice and George

Thursday 8th of April 2021

Hi Jerry,

If you book through the Pueblo Bonito resort, you can buy the AI package at the time of your booking. (It may be less expensive if you buy the plan in advance.) But you can also buy the package at the hotel when you arrive. Hope this helps...

Hello, Are the beaches at the Pueblo Sunset Beach Golf Resort swimmable? Do any of the bars serve Grand Marnier?

Janice and George

Thursday 8th of April 2021

Hi Steven,

No, you can't swim at the beach at the Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach resort. BUT you can take the free shuttle (which goes several times a day) to its sister resort, Pueblo Bonito Rose, and use the facilities there. The Rose resort is right on Medano Beach, which is a wonderful swimming beach in Cabo.

As for Grand Marnier, gosh, sorry. We don't know the answer to this specific question. We just updated this post to include the liquor brands for the Premium and Platinum plans as well, and we don't see Grand Marnier on any list.

Thank you for the article. Would you so happen to know what the Platinum Plan offers and why is it so much more per day than the Premium?

Thanks!

Hi Andrea, Good question :-). Most people on the all-inclusive plan have the Deluxe plan (same as what we had). The main difference between the plans is the quality of alcohol. The Premium and Platinum plans include a better quality tequila in your margaritas than the Deluxe plan. We have a suspicion that some of those extra surcharges for LaFrida and other surcharge restaurants are waived or reduced on the higher plans too. But don't quote us on this :-). We'll try and find out... And when we do, we'll update this post with the info. In the meantime, you might get a quicker answer by communicating with the resort or the PB group.
