Pueblo Bonito Properties Expanding

The 1800 acre property on the Pacific side has been going through big changes
BY: PRICE WRIGHT

Money is pouring in for hotel and residential development at the Pueblo Bonito group, owner of five resorts in Cabo San Lucas: the Pueblo Bonito Blanco and Rose resorts on Cabo San Lucas Medano beach, as well as their properties on the Pacific side which include Pueblo Bonito Sunset beach and Pacifica, as well as the Copala developments that include Quivira and Montecristo. They are plowing in  $120 million for next year on new construction. They can afford it, most of their properties, (but not all), are timeshare and any of us who have bought timeshare, (and who hasn’t), know how much quick cash that generates.

The Pueblo Bonito group has planned a major expansion for their Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort, the group’s adults only property. Two new buildings, with a total of 47 rooms, will be added, including a presidential suite and six suites each with a private pool. The two buildings will be called Quivira Club and will feature enhanced room amenities as well as snappy service with a butler on each floor. This also has the new Jack Nicklaus Quivira golf course, the most awesome course in Baja. Yes, even more awesomer than the Davis Love lll’s Diamante course which is pretty awesome. And Quivira is way, way awesomer than the new Tiger Woods course at Diamante that opened a year ago. Tiger’s is pretty ho-hum, as you would expect from the first effort of a guy who used to play golf.  Nicklaus, meanwhile, has  375 courses open for play in 36 countries with another 45 under development. It pays to hire experience and Quivira has done just that; it shows in their fabulous course.  It’s hard to get on unless you agree to sit through a timeshare pitch at Pueblo Bonito, but it just might be worth it. Or you can buy full ownership at Quivira. They have full ownership homes, villas, and three story townhomes in a variety of prices, starting at quite reasonable and going through the roof for some very fancy properties.. If you play golf, buying in Copala, which includes the Quivira community inside it, might be your best bet.

Pacifica also will add a third new building, this one three stories. On the first floor there will be a Mexican-Mediterranean fusion restaurant with indoor and outdoor oceanfront dining. The second floor gym will offer dramatic ocean views to sweat by. The third floor—accessible by a high in the sky kinda scary bridge from the other new buildings—will be a VIP lounge open only to Quivira Club guests. There you can get a light breakfast, afternoon snacks, and pre- and after-dinner cocktails while overlooking the ocean. Not much of a kitchen there, you’re there for the quiet exclusivity and the impressive Pacific ocean view, not the food.

Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach timeshare hotel  is also expanding, with the addition of 104 villas and a new food court offering a choice of restaurants that include family friendly, Asian, and Italian, as well as separate areas with desserts, beers, and wines.

A new area for teenagers, which will feature arcade games, table games such as air hockey and pool, a movie theater, and a snack bar are planned. (We hear the rumor of a lock on the outside of that door is not true, that the teens can get out and come back to join you in their ardent desire to spend quality time with the family.)

Within the Quivira residential community, not primarily time share, but there are some large beautiful fractional opportunities, 2016 will also bring the next phase of development at Copala, which ultimately will include 85 houses and seven six floor buildings, each with 36 apartments, including -1,2 and 3 bedroom units. These are built back from the ocean, up on the hill, with expansive golf course and blue water views. These houses and condos will have their own clubhouse, in addition to the Quivira Beach Club down by the water, 20 miles of hiking/biking trails, and even a chance to plant your own wine bushes. They are laying out a vineyard. The condos here, and some of the homes starting at about $400,000. Considering how many amenities there are spread over this 1800 acre property, this is a sweet deal.

They have a website, but it sucks. Maybe call them at 624 173 6146 or in the States 800 632 0147. Oh, OK, we’ll tell you their website, but you’re not going to like it. www.quiviralascabos.com. There are some pretty pictures on the site, we will give them that. Just no details of anything.  ,
