If first-time visitors think Los Cabos is still a sleepy fishing village, those thoughts are immediately quashed upon heading to their hotels from Los Cabos International Airport. All along the 25-mile length of the ‘Tourist Corridor’ leading to The Towers at Pacifica Resort are high-end hotels, golf courses, and brand-name retail establishments.
The Towers at Pacifica is the newest property in the Pueblo Bonito Resort family. The 47-suite Towers are a premium-luxury addition within an 1,800-acre site that also includes the adjoining Pueblo Bonito Pacifica, Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach, the Montecristo Luxury Estates and the Jack Nicklaus-designed Quivira Golf Course.
It is easy to admire the workmanship and painstaking construction of the two-mile-long entry road leading to The Towers at Pacifica. This hillside road, which is made of hand-laid pavers, offers spectacular views of the Pueblo Bonito gated community and the Pacific Ocean.
The road, built at a cost of $4 million, is a prelude to the type of all-inclusive luxury guests will experience at The Towers and the resort’s sister properties.
Upon your arrival at the posh entrance to The Towers you are met by the resort’s butlers, trained and certified by the British Butler Institute. You are whisked to the twin towers and provided with an orientation on everything your suite offers.
The first amenities you will note in your suite are a Nespresso machine and a sizable en-suite bathroom. The shower features a rainfall showerhead, which provides plenty of water pressure. The suite’s closet and drawers are opened by a gentle press.
There are light panels on either side of the king-size bed. The ample balcony is perfect for morning coffee, an evening cocktail, taking care of laptop business, or just admiring the sweeping view.
The broadband WiFi speed provided in your suite is lightning-fast; your butler provides the resort’s Internet password during your initial room orientation.
Staff members at The Towers’ are both friendly and attentive. The feeling of goodwill they generate in guests is amplified by the wonderfully fresh Los Cabos air.
The resort’s refreshing atmosphere and the near-perfect temperatures you experience throughout the courtyard, when poolside, on the beach, and while dining at the resort’s alfresco restaurants feel almost exhilarating.
If your by-now-relaxed mindset gives in to a “let’s play” sensation, you may want to peruse the daily activity board near the pool and the Siempre Restaurant. Activity options range from salsa dancing to beach yoga and just about everything in between.
The attention to detail exhibited throughout the property is to be appreciated. Any visible section of courtyard sand is either meticulously raked or in many cases sculpted. You will begin to observe subtle artistic references to the Pueblo Bonito logo.
In Spanish, Pueblo Bonito means ‘beautiful village’. The village concept behind the linked Pueblo Bonito resorts is an experience most guests will explore via the complimentary shuttles connecting the sister properties.
The Sunset Beach property is located five minutes up the hill. This resort is geared toward families, whereas The Towers at Pacifica is an adults-only option. The Sunset Beach Resort is home to the newly constructed 15,000-square-foot Market at Quivira.
The culinary concept for the $5.5 million Market at Quivira is modeled after The Plaza Hotel in New York and Harrods in London. Think of a favorite food or dessert and you’ll find it at the Market.
Its hilltop elevation makes the Sunset Beach Resort’s outdoor bar, next to the resort’s swimming pool, a great spot at which to enjoy viewing spectacular sunsets.
Golfers will thrill to Pueblo Bonito’s Quivira Golf Course, which is located about a mile west of The Towers at Pacifica.
Quivira Golf Course’s Jack Nicklaus-designed, 18-hole layout has more ocean holes than any other golf course in Los Cabos. That’s saying something for a destination featuring 14 high-end golf courses designed by names such as Fazio, Norman, and Woods.
The 1,800-acre site containing the Pueblo Bonito resort community has a rich history. For instance, the site contains a lighthouse which dates to the early 1900s.
Located on the front nine of Quivira Golf Course, the lighthouse resembles a castle. The building is the oldest standing structure in all of Los Cabos.
The Pueblo Bonito-branded resorts began developing their Los Cabos properties in 1998. At that time, there were no roads and no power and water utilities on the site, but the resorts and luxury estates are now thriving.
The exquisite landscape, the excellent WiFi connectivity, and the luxury-hotel experience enjoyed by guests today at the Pueblo Bonito resort community represents quite a before-and-after transformation for what once was a sleepy fishing village.
