Pueblo Bonito Rosé Resort & Spa

a Greco-Roman fantasy

Today we are taking a closer look at Rosé Resort & Spa, one of the Pueblo Bonito sister resorts. If you have already read my Cabo San Lucas trip overview, you will be a little familiar with Rosé. Rosé Resort & Spa is located near Sunset Beach, a short and scenic 20 minute drive by the resort shuttle bus. With its buildings painted in pink hues and various Grecian and Roman statues throughout the property, Rosé exudes a more passionate atmosphere which is perfect for vacationing couples.  There is an air of romanticism at Rosé and it is amplified by a smaller and much more intimate setting.

Being a smaller resort, Rosé has fewer on-site restaurants but it features one that guests rave about. Due to time constraints we did not get to try the famed Italian cuisine of Fellini’s Ristorante, but guests from all Pueblo Bonito resorts will tell you how delicious it is. Instead, we opted for the more casual Sunsets and Sushi Bar located right on El Médano beach. It was the perfect place for us to unwind, observe the activity on the shoreline and soak in the incredible view of the extreme Southern end of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula.

Visiting El Arco, the Land's End

Known locally as "El Arco", this area represents the Southern-most tip of the Baja Peninsula.

Rosé’s close location to the marina makes this resort a great place to make your home base as you explore Cabo San Lucas city. The local Marina is a casual 25 minute walk from Rosé, and leads you through the quieter outskirts of town. You will see many tourists visiting the local shops and eateries here, giving visitors a sense of familiarity and safety.

Once you arrive at the Marina, take some time to observe your surroundings. There are plenty of local shops, restaurants, and excursion companies offering no shortage of boat tours. At first, we were a bit overwhelmed with the number of tour options and people approaching us to sell excursions. We met a friendly salesman that was selling tours and we took down his information, but we wanted to research further. After some quick online Googling we selected Rancho Tours for our excursion to view El Arco.

To meet our Rancho Tours tour guide, we made our way to Dock A at the Marina – the same place we met that friendly local boat tour vendor. What a nice coincidence!

We joined two other couples and made our way from the marina to the Arch of Cabo San Lucas. Our tour guide (pictured above) delivered a fun and informative tour of Lover’s Beach, Divorce Beach (which is the opposite side of Lover’s Beach) and El Arco.

Once we reached Lover’s Beach we made a quick stop to feed the fishes in order to view them through the porthole in our boat. After viewing Land’s End, El Arco and the other side of Lover’s Beach, we made our way back to the marina. Along the way we watched several seals swim and jump up onto the stern of another boat to receive some fishy treats.

Pueblo Bonito Los Cabos Resort

We did not have the pleasure of visiting Rose's next door neighbor, Pueblo Bonito Los Cabos (formerly Pueblo Bonito "Blanco"), but loved the bright, Mediterranean style of the resort.

Formerly known as Pueblo Bonito “Blanco”, the Los Cabos sister resort offers an incredible view of the Baja Peninsula and Sea of Cortez.
