The results of Conde Nast Traveler’s 32nd annual Readers’ Choice Awards – “The Best in the World”- have been announced, and four Pueblo Bonito Resort properties have been recognized for excellence.
In the “Top 20 Resorts in Western Mexico” category, a quartet of Pueblo Bonito resorts, two in Los Cabos and two in Mazatlán, appear on the prestigious list of properties. The winning resorts selected for accolades by the publication’s readers are Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort, Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Golf & Spa Resort, Pueblo Bonito Mazatlán Beach Resort, and Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay Resort & Spa in Mazatlán.
In the leading position is Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort, which has redefined the upscale Cabo vacation experience for couples since its debut in 2005. Fronting a magnificent 2.5-mile stretch of pristine beach and designed to showcase the unique beauty of the Baja Peninsula’s mountain-desert-ocean environment, this adults-only, all-inclusive hotel, recently expanded and refined, is a great place to relax and unwind. The hotel offers a spacious pool and hot tub, beachfront cabanas and the award-winning Armonia Spa. A new restaurant, Peninsula, features exceptional Baja cuisine made with locally sourced ingredients, while the Peninsula Lounge offers expansive views of the sea, sky and sand. Guests at the hotel have exclusive access to Quivira Golf Club, which is also located within Quivira Los Cabos.
Set above the same stretch of ocean beach as Pacifica is a second award winner, Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Golf & Spa Resort. Opened in 2002 and the largest hotel in the company’s portfolio, this family-friendly, multi-terraced resort, located 10 minutes from downtown Cabo San Lucas, features 749 beautifully appointed junior and executive suites. The hotel boasts an array of restaurants, a spectacular Sky Pool set high above the sea, and is home to The Market at Quivira, a gastronomic “food hall” that offers a wide range of themed eateries, from Asian and Italian to delicious wellness cuisine at Perfect Balance. The resort’s stylish new sports bar, The After at Quivira, features superb pub fare, an oceanfront terrace and after-hours entertainment.
Conde Nast Traveler’s readers also acknowledged Pueblo Bonito Mazatlán Beach Resort, a flagship property situated in the resort city’s celebrated Zona Dorada, or Golden Zone. This resort, the first in the Pueblo Bonito portfolio, is an enchanting mix of Old-World charm and modern pleasures. Cilantro’s Restaurant, recently treated to major makeover, enjoys a gorgeous beachfront location and has long been a premier Mazatlán destination for delicious seafood, international cuisine and craft cocktails served in an atmosphere of casual elegance. In addition, Pescados offers beachfront al fresco dining and presents innovative Asian-inspired dishes, including sushi, nigiri and sashimi.
The magazine’s final honoree is Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay Resort & Spa in Mazatlán. Fronting a beautiful crescent beach on the Pacific coast, this all-suite resort, the only AAA Four-Diamond resort in Mazatlán, sets the pace for excellence on Mexico’s mainland. Nestled on 20 lushly landscaped acres overlooking the sea, Emerald Bay has flowering gardens dotted with koi ponds, a top-class spa, and neoclassical architecture inspired by Old Mazatlán. Winding pathways lead from the hotel’s 378 junior and master suites to the sea, where swans, flamingos and peacocks frequent mangrove pools. Emerald Bay is renowned for the French-inspired La Cordeliere and its legendary Champagne Sunday Brunch.
As for the publication’s awards methodology, a record 600,000 registered voters weighed in on their favorite hotels around the globe. According to Conde Nast Traveler, “Some hotel stays are utterly forgettable—decent food, standard sheets, and a middle-of-the-road location. But some, you’ll remember for the rest of your life.” The magazine noted that of the nearly 10,000 hotels, resorts, and destination spas rated, barley 15 percent made the cut, a further tribute to the excellence of Pueblo Bonito Resorts.
