Is Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach all inclusive? Yes, but it’s an option.

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 by the resort, as of January 31, 2022. (The 2021 rates were about $10 per person less.)

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 2022 rates set out below.

The advance cost per adult for the Deluxe plan was $96.16 (not the current quoted rate of $227 per adult, shown below). For the Premium Plan, the advance cost was $110.12 per adult, and for the Platinum plan, it was $153.03 per adult.

1) Cost – Pueblo Bonito Deluxe all-inclusive plan:

$227 – Adult
$208 – Senior (60+)
$208 – Junior (12 to 17)
$134 – Child (5 to 11)

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 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!

Hi! We booked for a trip in September via Booking.com with the All Inclusive. Any ideas which plan that may include? Going through the resort was slightly cheaper but it was non refundable, so we stuck with Booking.com as they have a much better cancellation policy.

Janice and George

Thursday 21st of April 2022

Hi Aga, These days, it's a good idea to have refundable options :-). The plan will most likely be the Deluxe plan. Only owners can get the other two plans. The Deluxe plan is a good one, though! Apart from wishing we could up the wine quality, we were happy with it :-). Have a good trip!

Is golf free to play with the platinum plan?

Janice and George

Thursday 31st of March 2022

Wouldn't that be nice! No, you still have to pay for the golf...

Tina

Friday 25th of February 2022

This is a great post. We are staying in March and have already purchased the Deluxe plan. Do you know what brands of whiskey and rum are included with this plan? Also is Michelob Ultra available? I was reading your list of liquor and see that Crown is on the list for the Deluxe plan. That’s the one I’m most curious about. Also can non-owners have premium or platinum? I’d love the option of reserved seating at the pool.

Janice and George

Thursday 3rd of March 2022

Hi Tina, For the whiskey and rum brands in the Deluxe plan, see under the heading: "Deluxe Plan Alcohol" in the grey box - the brands are all listed there (e.g., Crown Royal and Seagrams VO for whiskey). Michelob Ultra isn't shown as a beer choice, but you can always ask when there :-). And, no, only owners can buy the Premium or Platinum plans. Don't worry too much though about pool seating - you won't have an issue getting decent pool chairs. People move around between the different pools too, so if great seats aren't available in the morning by a particular pool, they're often likely to be free a few hours later - or on a different day Have fun!

When we signed up for the premium plan, it includes airport transportation. The resort quotes that as a $50 value. That made the difference between the two plans in the prices quoted to us when we reserved negligible. Did you use the hotel for transportation? and is that price high compared to other options?

Janice and George

Tuesday 22nd of February 2022

Hi Brian, No $50 isn't a high quote for airport transportation. If that's for 2 people, that's $25 p.p. See our post on Cabo Airport Transfers. The absolute cheapest transfer for a shared shuttle is about $18 p.p. to Cabo one way. You're going further than Cabo San Lucas over to the Pacific Side, and transportation usually costs a bit more to get there. The convenient part is that you won't be making stops to let others off at other hotels, just PB. Depending on the number of people arriving at the airport at the same time who are going to PB Sunset Beach, you may be in a bus or smaller van. (At least that's the way it was when we last saw people getting off the bus/van at Sunset Beach.) Enjoy your trip!

We are tea-totalers (don’t drink alcohol). In our case would you recommend an AI package or going a la carte on meals? I wish there were a package designed with the few of us in mind. 😊

Janice and George

Friday 4th of February 2022

Hi Sara, Sorry for the late reply! We'd probably suggest not getting the package, as you wouldn't be getting the full value. This also gives you the option to go into town a few times to eat out at different restaurants. Buy some bottled water and snacks also for your unit. The little store will have cheese, crackers, some fruits, etc. Having a few food items on hand will tide you over if you get the munchies :-). Hope this helps!
