The hotel was very nice, clean and seemingly well organized. Upon our arrival, the bellman took our luggage aside. Although our confirmation said we had a certain room on a certain floor, when we checked-in, the people at the front desk didn't even ask for our papers, nor did we get the room that was supposed to be ours for the week. When I asked what good is the confirmation letter, they said it doesn't guarantee you will get what is on the sheet. Kind of rudely I might add.
Once in our room we waited about 2 hours to get our luggage, which seemed like a very long time, considering there were only two other people behind us checking in that day. We ended up going down stairs to get our own luggage. The grounds were beautiful, but our "ocean view" was very limited. The housekeeping staff was very efficient, they had to come in and replaced our refrigerator after we realized it wasn't working properly, we went out for a few hours and when we returned, they had taken care of the issue.
Any complaints were resolved with free margarita coupons, no "sorrys." The kitchen utensils needed extra cleaning, no paper towels in the unit. I guess I am spoiled at home. I get the goobers if something isn't quite clean enough;(. Over all, we really enjoyed our vacation and would like to go back this year. Unfortunately, I was informed by RCI they have some program in place that doesn't allow you to return to the PUEBLO BONITO ROSE for 4 years if you did not buy a timeshare there. Oh and by the way no need to brush up on your Spanish, because the natives seem to speak better English than we did. Quick Tips/Suggestions: If you do the timeshare presentation usually you can get hotel credit, which helps on the bill at the end. We ride mopeds for half a day and explored a little. The horseback riding was nice too. Best Way to Get Around: This hotel was within walking distance of Downtown Cabo, wear some comfy shoes and watch you step...there are a lot of cracks and bad cement around. Once you get past the check in process and get your luggage, your vacation begins. The serene atmosphere and wonderful birds scattered throughout the premises are stunning. Grab a margarita and you will be transformed into another world.

Location, location, location! The best feature of the Pueblo Bonito Rose is that it is located on Menando Beach and that it's a short walk from almost any restaurant or nightlife activity in downtown Cabo. The swimmable beach and beautiful views of the scenic cabo rocky point make this an ideal place to spend your time in Cabo! The grounds are well maintained and several exotic birds and avaries are a part of the decor as well as roman statues.
Rooms that are avaiable are a jr. suite with two double beds, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom. All units come with a kitchenette or kitchen area, including small fridge, stovetop, microwave, and sink. Due to the layout, most rooms do not have full ocean views.
Drinks at the pool/beach are resonable and good a good size. Every day from 2-4pm is a happy hour, and all drinks are 2-for-1. This two-hour time frame was excellent! I recommend the Miami Vice's half pina colada/strawberry daquiri.
The spa is small but provides a good variety of treatments. It has two great hot tubs with about a 9-foot waterfall in each of the men's and women's locker rooms. Upstairs is a workout room equipped with new exercise machines and a aerobic room. Spinning and other classes are available. The hotel needs an outside hot tub or at least a co-ed one in the spa
The hotel had an activities desk and seemed to have a lot of variety. Many families with small children were staying at the hotel and the pool area had a shallow area for kids.
Monday to Monday only check-in and stays for timeshares make it a little inflexible for travel plans.We would return to this hotel.

Be prepared to spend a lot of money on taxis and tipping. Most of the restaurants have excellent food. Try the local cuisine and skip American food that tends to be bland and boring. Make note that if you take the glass bottom boat to Lands End, you will be in the water fighting the waves to get in and out of the boat. It's especially tough if you choose to get out at Lovers Beach!

We made our own food some days after shopping for local delicacies. It was worth it! Fresh salsa and handmade sausages...
The weather wasn't great for us--too cloudy--but the water was warm. The vendors on the beach can be a nuisance.

After getting past the first two days, things went really well. The property is nice and the staff is polite.
