Not that the lovely Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort needed more luxury, but Cabo property entrepreneur Ernesto Coppel decided that one of his nine facilities around Cabo San Lucas should go upscale.  More upscale.  So in December of 2016 he added The Towers, a new separate building even closer to the beach on the Pacific Ocean, with its own VIP staff and facilities.

The Towers offers each guest his or her own personal butler, trained and certified by the British Butler Institute, to do the will of the guest. This includes running the bath; bringing any of the (all-inclusive) food and beverages to the room; bringing four more kinds of pillows (firm non-allergenic, soft feather, firm feather or orthopedic) to the already dozen placed on the bed; putting eucalyptus and cocoa butter and other special ingredients into your personal soap and cutting a bar for your use; arranging a private dinner on the beach, treatments at the spa, a camel safari, even accompanying a guest into nearby San Miguel's blown glass factory (and wrapping your purchases before mailing them home).

Of the 47 rooms in the Towers, which is termed "a resort within a resort," six are 689-square-foot suites with private plunge pools, and some have Jacuzzis, although the large Jacuzzi of the 200-room resort has a roof for sun protection while you steam.  Resort General Manager Mizraim Espinoza says "We are a hotel of experiences," and one of those is the Hook & Cook experience in which guests throw a line into the sea in front of their room, and when they catch a fish, the chef turns it into ceviche.  Every afternoon, regardless of whether you have caught a fish or not, VIP guests can enjoy a pairing of ceviche with wine or local beer in their own private dining room or outside on the whale-watching deck.  An enormous fitness room in the Towers gives wonderful ocean views to those who work out here.  The Presidential suite in the Towers costs $3000 per night; the rooms and suites jump halfway down from there in price and depend on the season.

This adults-only resort has a landscape staff one could call gardener/artists, who work the sand as well as the Mexican flora.  If you wish to have a message of love or anything else raked into the sand below your balcony for your significant other to see, you can arrange that unusual service.

The all-inclusive services continue on the resort's spectacular three-year-old Quivira Golf Club, set among windswept dunes, sheer granite cliffs and rolling desert foothills, where four "comfort stations" offer burritos, tacos, even margaritas if you wish.

The Jack-Nicklaus-designed course, with 18 holes set along the Pacific Ocean, was declared the "best New Golf Course at International Level" and the "Best Golf Course in Latin America" by Golf Magazine.  Nicklaus said that on this 7,139-yard course "Mother Nature has allowed us to create one of the most mesmerizing golf courses in the world."  All 18 holes feature Paspalum grasses, panoramic views of the ocean, and from the 18th hole, many players have spotted whales in the water.  It is difficult, but kind to women.  The highest point, at the 15th hole, is 380 feet above sea leve and the lowest, on the 18th green, is 30 feet above.  If you drive a ball toward some of the greens, which look as if they are surrounded by nothing but rock cliffs and water, you may land it into the water but you won't feel as bad knowing the unbelievably beautiful scenery around you is worth your trouble. In season, a round costs $315.

The Towers at Pacifica takes Mexican pampering to a completely new level.
