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.

For example, the advance rates in January, 2020 were less than half the 2021 rates set out below.

The advance cost per adult for the Deluxe plan was $96.16 (not the current quoted rate of $217 per adult, shown below). For the Premium Plan, it was $110.12 per adult, and for the Platinum plan, it was $153.03 per adult.

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.)

Also see the Comments from owners and guests, at the end of this post, about their experiences and what they paid.

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.

Add a bit more, and the following should give you a rough idea of what meals cost in the various restaurants today, if you were to order à la carte and didn’t have an all-inclusive 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 have a sample of any of the menu prices for breakfast, lunch or dinner at the resort? Also drinks? What do they charge for a beer?

Janice and George

Saturday 26th of June 2021

Hi Lori, Good questions! We've just updated our post to include some of the menu samples, with prices. So check under the "Bar and Restaurant Menus" heading. You'll also find some cocktail prices in the Manila Bar menu. As for beer prices, they're about $5 USD. You've also prompted us to contact the resort again for some current bar prices, and we'll post those once we get the answers :-). Thanks for writing in!

We are owners and will be staying at Sunset Beach. Do you know what the daily rate for all inclusives are running now, April 2021?

Janice and George

Saturday 24th of April 2021

The all-inclusive rate plans listed in our post are current as of April, 2021. We just updated our post to show the current rates as per quotes we received directly from the resort in early-April. They do seem a bit high to us, however. We were also advised that the rates can change (up or down) at any time :-). If you find different rates, we'd love for you to let us know!

Can you please update this information, if there is an update. Your info is really helpful. Trying to decide platinum vs deluxe. Preferred lounge seats are important to us. Don’t want to fight for a lounge chair by the pool! Can you provide more info on this. Are there preferred areas closed off to the deluxe plans?? Thanks!!

Janice and George

Wednesday 21st of April 2021

Hi C.J. For the preferred seating by the pools, there are a few lounge chairs with Reserved signs on them, and these are for Platinum guests. Question: Are they the prime pool seats? Depends on the view and location you want... Once at the resort, you could probably talk with the pool attendants if you'd like them to "reserve" a couple of loungers for you in a different spot. Hope this helps :-).
