I will be at the PB Rose for 2 weeks next year and would like to try the all-inclusive. Can I sign up ahead of time for the a tour so I can get the discounted rate. Also what is the current rate if you take the tour? Thanks in advance.

We just got back and we loved the all-inclusive plan. We got an email several weeks before our check-in date offering the plan at an owner's rate if we paid in advance. The owner rate is $66/day per person and if you paid in advance you paid for six days and got the seventh day free. That brought it down to an average cost of $56/day per person.

I think the advertised rate I saw at the resort for non-owners was $77/day. We were offered the plan for $40/day per person if we'd go on the timeshare presentation. They gave us a credit back to our credit card for the difference. (I'm still waiting for that to show up on my credit card statement--it has been four days since it was issued. I do have the receipt.) In addition to that credit, we got four free tickets for the zipline adventure and a $100 spa service for $50. We didn't use the spa credit but our adult kids really enjoyed the zipline adventure.

If you don't get the email offer before you leave, you could contact Liliana Zatarain at this email address: lzatarain@pueblobonito.com.mx
She could also answer any questions you might have about the plan.

I highly recommend the all-inclusive. It's a great deal, even at $77/person. You could easily spend that much with a few drinks around the pool and lunch.

I see that you aren't going until next year. The plan should be even more extensive then because I think the PB Sunset Beach will be included starting Jan. 1. As it is now, the plan enables you to go to any of the restaurants, bars, & poolside at the Rose and the Blanco next door.

I'm not sure how it will work with PBSB added, but it will make it even more attractive if you will have access to all the PBSB restaurants, too. I would expect the cost to go up, though.

Karen - how would you feel about the value of the all inclusive at the current cost of $79? We haven't visited before so I'm unsure of the prices. I am a light eater/drinker. Any thoughts? (We won't be doing a presentation so we'll have to pay full price).

I think it's still a good value. I didn't drink much on this trip either, usually just having wine with dinner, but I had lots of non-alcoholic drinks throughout the day. We'd also get bottled water and canned soft drinks to bring back to the room. My husband and adult children drank a lot and several of them really like sushi. They enjoyed the sushi bar at the Rose every day. I am on Weight Watchers and I was able to stay on the plan pretty easily. There was a lot of fruit, salads, and grilled meats to choose from. At breakfast at the Rose, a lady would make fruit smoothies to order and they were great. They also had a cook making omelets to order.

I forgot to mention that room service is also included with a $5 delivery charge. Taxes and tips are included in the daily rate, but we brought a stack of $1 bills to tip the excellent servers throughout the week. The theme night buffets had great entertainers and lots of varieties of food.

It was really relaxing to not have to worry about how much we could spend or order at any given meal. We've been going to Cabo for the last 13 years and never had this option of all-inclusive before. There are a number of good restaurants within walking distance of the Rose, but the quality of the food, the excellent service, and the variety available under this all-inclusive plan was better, in my opinion. When we would eat at restaurants, the drinks really added a lot to final bill--even soft drinks, which did not include free refills.

Edit to add: One of my daughters at first thought she'd not do the all-inclusive plan but would get food from Costco and fix her own meals. But, she and her boyfriend decided they'd try the all-inclusive since the rest of us were doing it. About half way through the first day, she said she was so glad she did the all-inclusive instead of trying to fix her own meals because she was able to try so many different things and not have to bother with cooking.
