Waterfront Resort with Private Ocean-View Balconies
Situated on a private coastal bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Resort & Spa resembles a sun-soaked Mediterranean village made up of stucco homes with red-tiled roofs. The hotel's name means "pretty town" in Spanish, and the moniker is spot-on. The sprawling resort encompasses more than 600 guest rooms, six swimming pools, a spa, and several onsite restaurants. Sumptuous interiors are decorated with ornate rugs, chandeliers, and thick curtains—all designed to ensconce visitors in luxury amid the tropical beauty of Cabo San Lucas.
The pools—which include an infinity pool set atop a tiered hacienda—provide relief from the midday sun, and so do the bartenders mixing cocktails at swim-up bars. Although the resort's private beach is non-swimmable, you can take a complimentary 15-minute shuttle to Pueblo Bonito's sister resort, Pueblo Bonito Rosé Resort & Spa, which has a beach where swimming is allowed. Pueblo Bonito's European-style spa, recognized by Travel + Leisure magazine as 1 of the Top 10 Hotel Spas in Mexico and Central and South America, offers an array of services such as body wraps, scrubs, and a 15-minute mini facial included in this Getaway.
The resort is home to several high-end and casual restaurants. At La Frida, chef Antonio de Livier crafts upscale Mexican fare that helped to earn the restaurant a AAA Four Diamond Award. Located in a regal indoor-outdoor setting augmented by sweeping ocean vistas, the eatery features décor inspired by renowned Mexican painter Frida Kahlo.
The resort's airy, 435-square-foot junior suites evoke a laid-back, beachy feel with earthy hues and minimalist décor. Eclectic regional art adorns the walls, and cedar headboards sport intricate carvings. A balcony or patio overlooks the Pacific Ocean, where migrating gray whales can sometimes be seen forming a conga line in the surf.
Cabo San Lucas: Shopping, Swimming, and Bustling Marina
Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Resort & Spa lies on a private swath of land on the western tip of the Baja peninsula. Despite the hotel's relative seclusion, downtown Cabo San Lucas sits just a short drive away. In addition to its restaurants, shops, and nightlife, Cabo is known for its marina, a popular destination for fresh seafood and a stunning sunset. Those in search of a more tranquil experience can hit up San José del Cabo, a village located just 22 miles (36 km) northeast of the resort. The town's central plaza and quaint shops offer a quiet alternative to Cabo's lively crowds.
