As with most travel, there were some really good things about the resort, and some that just weren't to my taste. We stayed as guests of owners and this was our second trip to Cabo (previously stayed in a condo at Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach)
The resort is perfectly lovely!! We stayed in a villa which was just up the hill from the clubhouse. The view was spectacular, the villa was well appointed, and had plenty of room for our party of 5. The landscaping is beautiful and the infinity pool was perfection! I would have been happy to spend our entire stay pool side! I was pleased that there was seating for everyone on both levels of the villa - both inside and out! And, the staff (particularly housekeeping) was top notch!
Some “tips” to keep in mind: The beach, main lobby, sky pool, drug store were not really within walking distance for everyone in our party. Be prepared for (and allow time) to use the shuttles and, if you are planning to go to the sister resorts, make reservations as there is limited availability.
The resort is on the Pacific side – there is no swimming at the beach (you can shuttle to Medano Beach at the sister resort)
This is a time share resort. Expect to be invited to sales presentations. (we didn’t attend but I heard that the credits offered are not good for the spa or the golf course so be sure and check)
There is a service that includes a private chef who will come to your villa and cook an entire meal. I found this to be a highlight of our stay! It was really enjoyable.
Consider taking a taxi into town after you arrive (there is a Wal Mart in Cabo)to buy snacks and drinks (or even food). There are groceries on-site, but the variety is limited.
There is quite a bit of traffic on the main road. You can hear the busses and construction vehicles from the pools of the villas on the first row (I expect higher up the hill may be quieter).
Walk (or take a shuttle) to the last villa at the top. The view is pretty awesome!!
Wifi in the villa was better than any hotel I’ve ever stayed at! (Bonus points for when you need to post pictures to FB for your friends to envy!)
I bought a cheap pool float at the Wal Mart and used it in the infinity pool – best money spent the whole vacation!
Portable speakers are prohibited out at the pool but I couldn’t figure out how to connect my music player to the surround sound in the villa.
Plan plenty of time for dining. This is definitely not casual American “get in and get out” !

Room Tip: A villa higher up the hill from the main road - busses travel regularly and can be heard from the te...

We returned to our Montecristo vacation paradise with our fantastic concierge, Raul Galeana, who makes sure our time is hassle free and fantastic. Thank you Raúl for making "our day" an everyday occurance! Also along comes Ines from the Montecristo spa to fill us ladies full of happiness and pleasure. She knows our needs and wants from last year and makes sure the therapist we had such as Myrna and Nadia are there for us again. Montecristo provides great service and luxury in a beautiful setting ! It was wonderful!!!

The villa's fabulous view, excellent condition and maintenance were perfect!!! The pool was so warm and comfortable, the service from all concerned was consistently excellent and Karen Ramirez, our very capable concierge was outstanding. It made for a very relaxing week. We also enjoyed the Asian restaurant adjoining the main building at Sunset several times.
We are very appreciative for your understanding how important the child safety items were for us. All the small child-related requests were perfectly in place when we arrived: pool netting, cribs, stairway gates, high chair and the birthday decorations for our son were very special indeed!
All in all, an excellent experience, really the very best yet after our numerous stays at both Sunset and Montecristo over the past 15 years. It's most gratifying to find things continuing to get better and better......and it's the people there that make it all work. Everyone was most cordial, professional and always smiling. It made for a very pleasant experience.......a week is not enough.

Just returned from a great stay at MCE(Mar 1-8). We were in villa #33 in phase 1 and it was a perfect location with early morning to late afternoon sun. There were 3 couples, 2 of them were first timers to MCE. This was my 4th visit. The villa, fully remodeled including a new hot tub was in perfect condition. Daily maid service was always done on time and very thorough. Thank you!

Shuttle service around the resort was quick with very little of a wait. Much improved from our last visit in 2012. On our visit call for a shuttle the driver picked us up at our villa and drove us directly to the sky pool. Now that is service!
On another occasion one of our guests left behind a pair of glasses at the sky pool and the driver he called brought him right back up to the pool and waited fro him.

The only restaurants we used were the sky pool at lunch. Great fish tacos. The deli at sunset was also excellent sandwiches. I needed some salt for my salad and the deli ran out of salt packets, so the cook went to the grocery self and opened a salt container and provide me some in a small cup with a lid for my takeout. You just can’t service like this back home.

My wife and I booked a massage (80 min) at the Sunset Beach spa and once again had the best massages in any of our travels. I would not pass this up. Discounts can be arranged if booked from the activity sales reps around the resort.

Special mention goes out to shuttle driver Gregorio, my "tocayo", on his excellent customer service and informative rides!

Played a round of golf at Quivira. What a course! A must play. Only complaint was the golf marshall we encountered on the 7th. A little rude in his comment on our pace of play ...”75 angry golfers behind us”. Not true as the group behind us(5 of them) did not want to play through when we offered.

Went into Rose one day and had a fun day on the beach in town. Beach staff for umbrellas setup was awesome. Very attentive.

Frequented Cabo Wabo on a few occasions and saw Sammy on the Friday. What a treat. Only took 4 trips to Cabo! Missed him by one day on our first trip in 2008
A few notes on restaurants visited(all excellent), Maria Corona, The Office, John’s Place, Cabo Cantina, Hacienda Cocina y Cantina, La Cantina de los Deseos and Salvatore's Italian Restaurant.

We also did the Ecocat snorkel afternoon tour…another great time on the catamaran.

Used All Ways Cabo for airport transportation and everything was right on as we booked( two shuttles) with great communication prior and during our stay for our return transportation.

Didn’t have to use our concierge for much, but Edgardo did reach out to us on numerous occasions offering his services.

Keep up the good work MC and PB!

Can’t wait to go back!

We returned to Montecristo Estates this February and spent two blissful weeks there. Overall, Montecristo is an amazing resort! The grounds are beautiful and luxurious. The gardens are lavish & vibrant, and the view is majestic & never ending. You are immersed in beauty from the moment you arrive ‘till the moment you leave.

When it comes to the amenities, the three-bedroom villa we stayed in (#159) was superb & impeccable. The Harmony Spa truly delivers harmony to your body & soul, and the Golf Course is magnificent, as is the Club-house.

When it comes to service, all the staff are courteous, professional, and welcoming, but then there are those that are particularly exceptional, like Karen & Alfredo. Karen was our personal concierge who visited us everyday to offer her assistance, wealth of information and made all our plans run smoothly. She paid particular attention to detail, and much to our surprise, made a birthday and anniversary special by going the extra mile with chocolate covered strawberries and cake. As for Alfredo – he was pleasure to deal with. He always welcomed us with his warm smile and handled our check- in & check -out promptly & effortlessly. In every respect, it was truly a heavenly holiday.

Room Tip: This is an all ocean view resort.
