Hotel-quality towels and bath amenities are replenished daily. Our unit, although it was only a studio, had ample storage in the closets, and came complete with a microwave, sink, two-burner stove, and a full set of dishes. (We would have liked to shop at one of the local markets and prepare our own fresh seafood dinner, but unfortunately, we found out that the town's only open-air market had closed down just before our visit!) We enjoyed our morning coffee each day out on the balcony. All but a few of the Pueblo Bonito units face the property's only pool, not the ocean. This was the one thing that I found to be a drawback. Whereas the view just outside the door of our unit was superb, overlooking the azure waters of the Sea of Cortez, it was not possible to see the ocean from the balcony.
However, if you're looking to soak up the sun in the pool area, you're in luck. Curtains shade many pairs of pink-and-white lounge chairs on the pool deck, so you can enjoy a sunny afternoon with your significant other. Roaming waiters are more than happy to bring you a drink from the poolside bar. Pay special attention to the "Happy Hours" posted, as you may end up with twice as many drinks as you really need, since the waiters usually fail to mention when the drinks are "2-for-1."
When you venture out onto Medano Beach, take advantage of the private beach area that belongs to the Rose, or to the Blanco, its sister property. The sand is pretty rocky, and therefore doesn't lend itself well to walking on, unless you're actually in the ocean. No matter where you are on the beach, you're bound to have a great view of Land's End! I highly recommend enjoying the Rose's Sunday Brunch on the Beach!

The upkeep throughout the resort is immaculate and the views out of this world.Resort Experience:We stayed in what they call a junior suite, which is a bit larger than your typical hotel room. There are two double beds with a small half wall that divides a small living room area. There is a partial kitchen with one bathroom. Every room has a balcony with a view of the pool area and the ocean. The Rose sits beside the Pueblo Bonito White, which is the older resort, so guests can enjoy the pool and other amenities at this adjacent resort.
The pool at the Rose has a diving well designed for scuba lessons, but the kids find it fun to dive feet first up and down in! The Pueblo Bonito sits on El Medano Beach and has one of the few safe swim beaches in the area. The water in Cabo has extremely strong currents, so many of the beaches are unsafe to swim at. Even in this safe beach area, the currents are strong and threw us around a bit.
There are restaurants on site and poolside waiters to take your orders. It is a little pricey, but that is to be expected at a resort of this caliber. We love this town and resort so much, we decided to purchase at this timeshare. We can''t wait to get back and enjoy all this wonderful location has to offer!

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.

The hotel is covered in flowering vines and grapes, which makes it very attractive. It has a clean pool with an attractive deck and a nice view.
Our room had a TV and a safe and was on the small side but still comfortable. We felt like we got a bit ripped off however, when our new friends that had the same room as us told us they got it for $40 a night cheaper.
Don''t pay more for a room "with a view" as they are advertised. Our room without a view was exactly the same.
It is a nice 3 star hotel and the restaurants of Anacapri are within walking distance.
I would recommend negoiating about the price of your room though, since they seem to be open to that. We paid $125 a night for ours, while our friends paid $85 a night for their identical room.

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.

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!
