A bit dated to compete with some of Cabos' more luxe properties, Mediterranean-style buildings curve around seemingly neverending grounds. Imitations of Roman busts guard reflecting pools, and Flemish tapestries adorn the lobby—this is definitely not your typical Cabo hotel. Even the Rosé's smallest suites can accommodate four people, and all have private balconies. The staff is gracious and attentive, and many guests return year after year because of this.
You can opt for an all-inclusive plan should you choose.
Rosé features 260 Junior and Luxury Suites, all with balconies and at least partial views of the Sea of Cortés. Private kitchens are also included in all suites, complete with microwaves, toasters, and coffee makers.
Room service is available around the clock from multiple sources, including dedicated deli, pizza, and kids' menus.
Bathroom sizes increase significantly from Junior to Luxury Suites, but all showcase elegant marble countertops and tiled, walk-in showers.
Rosé’s exterior décor and that of its public spaces is modeled on ancient Rome, and sports abundant statuary and other period accents. The lobby sets the tone, with Romanesque busts, rich tapestries, and a towering rotunda topped by a central oculus.
The pool is the centerpiece of the enormous inner courtyard of the U-shaped resort, and is gargantuan in both size and scope. It can easily accommodate hundreds of guests. A space is set aside at one end for children.
Signature treatments at the pampering onsite spa include a healing skin therapy and a relaxing lavender and white tea ritual with exfoliation, body wrap, and massage.
The expansive gym facilities are open daily, and are a complimentary amenity for all-inclusive guests. All others pay a small fee. The adjoining tennis court is open nightly until 7 p.m.
All-inclusive guests may enjoy complimentary cuisine at Mare Nostrum (breakfast buffets and dinner service), Sunsets & Sushi Bar (lunch and dinner), and at Paloma’s (Mexican) and Cilantro’s (seafood) at Pueblo Bonioto Los Cabos. Upscale restaurant Fellini’s is not included in the all-inclusive plan, but is worth a visit for its fine wines and Italian specialty dishes, as well as its breathtaking terrace views. Theme nights at Mare Nostrum are also a popular dinner option, and the resort boasts a small deli set next to a lovely shaded plaza.
Pueblo Bonito has four properties in Cabo San Lucas, and although not all the restaurants at these properties are free to all-inclusive guests, all are accessible via an hourly intra-resort shuttle service.
Guests can belly up to the Pool Bar in their bathing suits. Slightly more (if still casual) attire is recommended for visits to the well-stocked bars at Sunsets & Sushi Bar and Mare Nostrum.
One of the selling points of Los Cabos all-inclusives is that guests need never leave the resort. For those that choose to explore, Rosé is a bit of a hike from the downtown area. A rental car is recommended for serious explorations, and free parking is complimentary at the resort.
Those interested in the traditional cuisine of Baja California Sur should visit nearby eatery Silviano’s Mexican Kitchen & Bar (4-minute walk). The chef, Silviano Orozco, was born in La Paz, and is one of the few regional talents helming a restaurant of consequence in Los Cabos. Regular visitors will remember him from his stints at two other great restaurants, Baja Cantina (7-minute drive) and Solomon’s Landing (8-minute drive).
It’s easy to find cocktail paradise. Simply walk down Médano Beach to popular watering holes like Tabasco, The Sand Bar, or SUR Beach House (all about an 11-minute walk), and sip your cold beverage of choice while the sun sets over Land’s End (8-minute drive).
WHY WE LIKE IT
An ancient Roman emperor would be embarrassed by the size of the swimming pool, and Rosé also offers spectacular vantages of Playa El Médano and the evocatively shaped granite monuments at Land’s End. It's a lovely place.
