    We moved from the Hilton Los Cabo (tourist corridor) to the Pueblo Bonito Rose (in Cabo on Playa Medano) on Sunday afternoon. The Pueblo Bonito Rose is a very nice hotel. I would recommend it. Tammy (host) got us a great deal on the price. The hotel is indeed on a swimmable beach and a ten minute walk to town. A cab into town costs $6 if you’d rather not walk. While I really enjoyed the hotel, I admit that I liked the Hilton better. That’s sort of like comparing apples to oranges though since they’re in different locations and cater to a different crowd. I would say the PB Rose crowd is younger and includes more families. The Hilton crowd was a little older and more into relaxing than partying as much.

    The rooms at the PB rose have 2 double beds (no king beds) and the view was not as direct to the ocean. You could see the rock formations though and the water (at an angle). The pool is nice and large. The water seemed cooler than the ocean to me. The service at the pool was good. We got tickets for 4 welcome cocktails when we checked in. You can take a free shuttle to the other PB hotels during your stay. We were busy doing other things so we never did it. There is also more of a push for the timeshare presentations here. We avoided this. Time is our most precious resource. That’s just us though. The hotel has a nice deli where you can buy groceries and order deli sandwiches. We took advantage of this and bought milk for our cereal and juice that we already had. The rooms come with a large (almost full-size) refrigerator, dishes, silverware, pans, Tupperware, a microwave, stove, sink, soap, and dish towels. This was great for when we wanted to eat in and save money. The layout of this hotel isn’t quite as good as many hotels I’ve stayed at. You had a long walk to the elevator from our room. So, we usually took the stairs. We were on the 4th floor so this seemed not so fun at night when we were coming home tired (and possibly a little drunk) and had to climb the stairs up to our room. I can be a lazy bum though.

      Thanks for the review. I agree that it is so hard to change resorts. When on our site visit we moved from the Presidente Intercontinental to the Riu and it was so hard to compare the two because they are so totally different!
      Anyway, I'm glad you had fun- good to have you back home safely. Now you better at least stick around for a while and visit us every now & then!

        Thanks Sarah! I couldn't agree more with the way you said it. It is hard to change hotels and compare them. I'll be around - don't worry! I want to hear about everyone else's big day too!!!

          I wouldn't say we spent a lot of time in Cabo as opposed to SJD and corridor.

          Before wedding:
          Thursday - We went to El Squid Roe and had some silly fun.

          After wedding:
          Sunday - We spent the day lounging and eating by the pool at the Hilton. We ate at Mi Casa on Sunday night and enjoyed it.
          Monday - We went to Todos Santos so we didn't do Cabo.
          Tuesday - We took a glass bottom boat to Lover's beach / Land's end. We ate at the Sleepless Lobster (per your rec) and enjoyed it. We went to The Nowhere Bar, Giggling Marlin, and Cabo Wabo as well. I liked Giggling Marlin and Squid Roe better than Cabo Wabo
          Wednesday - We went to Playa Santa Maria (KM13 near Hotel Twin Dolphin) and enjoyed it. We ate dinner in SJD at Jazmin's and had a good Mexican meal.
          Thursday - we left.
