“Surreal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2013

What an unbelievable place! The pool, beach, view, restaurant, staff and floor plans are better than anywhere we've stayed. The 2 bedroom units have 2 masters with each having their own private balcony facing the ocean as well as a big balcony off the living room. There is a world class chef on site that makes different food everyday. Everyone on the staff from the owner to the cleaning people smile and wave every time they see you. My wife and I just spent 7 days there and did not see a vendor. The beach club is a 5 minute beach stroll as well as a surf school and a very swimmable beach. If you want to hang from your ankles and be forced to do tequila shots this is not the place but that place is only 45 minutes of easy drive away. This is a new annual trip for us!

Bottom line up front:

A luxurious and spacious condominium, manned by an incredibly friendly and accommodating staff, all nestled in a secluded, quiet, and beautiful location. Will we go back? Absolutely. However, if you’re reading this and trying to decide whether or not to pull the trigger, here some more details...

Caveat: We’ve never been to Mexico and really didn’t know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised, many times over.

Booking our stay with Monica couldn’t have been easier. We nailed down the details over the phone and she promptly emailed me our contract – which I requested prior to sending our PayPal deposit. About a week before we arrived, Monica even sent me an email just checking to see if there would be anything in particular we might need before we arrived. I responded with some concerns and she promptly answered them.

We landed in SJD and made the relatively painless drive to the Pacifico. We arrived later than expected so after peeking my head in the main office, Tony (the on-site developer) warmly greeted us and very cordially showed us through the main gate (it’s a gated community), to our room, and gave us a thorough once-over with regard to room access, on-site amenities, etc. Before leaving he noticed a light bulb was burned out and immediately returned with a new bulb in hand.

Anyhow, beyond the hospitality of the wonderful staff, here are all other important details.

Condo luxuriousness: 5 out of 5. My wife got a little sketched out by the dark drive to the condo (street lights apparently are not a thing on Mexican highways), so to say that she was floored when we walked into our one bedroom condo would be an extreme understatement. The entire condo is decorated with beautiful tile work, contemporary art, and is filled with very modern-but-cosy furniture. Our condo also featured a very large kitchen, dining room, living room, and bathroom. The bedroom could certainly be considered small, but we have no complaints. Falling asleep at night to the sound of the crashing ocean waves through the open patio doors (we had two patios, one leading to the bedroom and one leading to the living room) was amazing. Furthermore, I’m certain we never actually closed or locked our patio doors for the entire duration of our stay. The laid back and friendly vibe from everyone we encountered made us feel very secure that none of our personal belongings were at risk of walking off.

Grounds layout: 5 out of 5. Pools everywhere, all done with amazing tile work and each one done in the “infinity” style – so the pools edge and the Pacific would appear to just blend together. There is perfectly manicured grass between all the sidewalks and pools, so feel free to leave your shoes and sandals at home. Of course there’s a swim-up bar, and of course there’s a hot tub. There’s even a swing set/playground set-up for those with smaller humans en tow.

Relaxation: 5 out of 5. Our goal this trip (as with most vacations) was to stay local to the condo as much as possible and thereby relax as much as possible. We met with incredible success. I arose each morning with the sun and walked the 10 minutes up the beach to the Cerritos Surf Club and got in a 2-3 hour surf session (great, fun little beach break with no urchins or other random location-specific nastiness to worry about). My wife would take the 10 second walk to the pool and post up for the day. If you’re looking for somewhere to completely unplug, this is it (although the bar/restaurant does have wireless if you need it).

On-Site Restaurant (literally, on-site and adjacent to the bar): 5 out of 5. Antonio is the executive chef and I haven’t met a more humble food genius in this life time. Not only were the dishes that he prepared phenomenal, but when my wife requested a chicken salad sandwich or a hamburger, he was able to “whip them up” as if he’d come to work prepared to serve exactly those dishes. Finally, on our last day at the restaurant, after mentioning (the day prior) that she might like a fresh lemon drink, Antonio and Tony both took it upon themselves to track us down a lemon. Seriously? Who does this? We were beside ourselves. And on the evening of our departure Tony handed us a bottle of the Tequila that they make near or on-site and asked us to come see them again.

Tony, Antonio, and Monica – we will absolutely be back. Thanks for an amazing first visit to Mexico.

Room Tip: Recommend a ground floor if you want direct access to the pool without having to worry about stairs...

I had read some reviews of Sol Pacifico before arriving, so I had high hopes. That being said, I wasn't really sure what to expect. My boyfriend and I arrived around 5 PM after picking up some food in Cabo on the way. We were told to greet someone by the pool to check-in so we went around the building and walked toward the pool. My first thought is hard to decipher now. I'm not sure it was really something I can express in the english language. It was just overwhelming. The sun was setting behind the infinity pool and beyond the crashing waves. There were a couple staff members there; one who I would learn was the chef.

Having traveled all day decided to enjoy dinner at the restaurant. We were literally the only people there besides the chef and bartender. He prepared us fresh scallops and shrimp which was amazing.

The remainder of the trip, we relaxed by the pool and walked along the beach a bit. The weather was fantastic and the pool was amazing. I'm not sure whether it is always that quiet at Sol Pacifico, but we loved it. Flakey WiFi but that's ok; you're not there for internet :) Actually, midway through our trip they installed some WiFi repeaters which really boosted the signal.

Anyway, this was an amazing getaway. I recommend renting a car so you can spend some time and travel to Todos Los Santos which is a quaint little tourist town with lots of good eats and shopping.

My wife and I just returned from Sol Pacifico Cerritos! What a weekend!! We took 2 other couples down for a party weekend. Chef Antonio served up the most delicious meals. No menu needed as Antonio cooked to order. 5 stars!!!! Tony made us feel right at home and had all the details covered. The pool is epic and the beach is beautiful. Thank you Antonio for the meals and Tony for the hospitality.

We spend close to a week taking in the amazing sunsets and enjoying the infinity pool/hot tub. Very relaxing with very few people to bother you. Tony, invited us down for sushi one evening and it was excellent. We were about 20 feet from the pool. Our 2 bedroom unit had huge bathrooms & awesome beds. Sunrises over the mountains to the east, and beautiful sunsets from the patio, couch, poolside, or cooking in the kitchen. Our family enjoyed the hot tub, relaxing in the poolside covered lounge benches, and the awesome infinity pool. If you can't relax here and enjoy yourself, you have serious issues. The pool temps were a little colder than we liked, but was the same temp as the ocean. Once in the pool, it felt great. Relaxing days at basically a private resort. The units are all set up differently. The only thing missing was a BBQ grill. I love to cook and while on vacation love to cook big meals on the grill. We had the chef cook the steaks and our entire meal, which was great. We didn't want to leave.

My husband and i enjoyed our week long stay at Sol Pacifico Cerritos. We pretty much had the whole place to ourselves. The staff was great and we met a very nice couple who is buying one of the condos there. The condo we stayed in was amazing! The only complaint is dont leave any type of food in containers or opened-reopened bags because of the clear lil ants that sworm. Once u remove the food they leave. Never saw any bugs otherwise. We cant wait to go back!

My fiance and I had the most amazing vacation at Sol Pacifico Cerritos. The accomodations were spectacular and the scenery was breath taking. We loved the peaceful and serene environment as well as the exquisite infinity pool. Not only do we talk about this place all the time since our trip, but we are planning our next vacation out there hopefully soon. The surf was amazing, and the people were kind and willing to help when we had questions. This place will forever stay in my heart as we got engaged at sunset right near the pool :) Thank you Sol Pacifico and the fabulous people that worked there for the most relaxing vacation ever.

Room Tip: Make sure to bring DVD's as some of the rooms do not have cable set up!
