    We are headed to Cabo in a few weeks and will spend part of our time in the Fiesta Americana on an HGVC points booking. This is our first trip to FA and we thought we had hit the jackpot with a non-AI resort but unfortunately they are now making all inclusive mandatory for HGVC as of 2011

    We have both HGVC and RCI Platinum points.

    While we are there we would like to look at other Cabo resorts that are not all inclusive mandatory and have kitchens. Can anyone give us the names of RCI, non-AI resorts with kitchens in Cabo?

    I believe that all three Pueblo Bonito resorts in Cabo are optional for all-inclusive and all have kitchens.

    Playa Grande on Solmar Beach is another optional all-inclusive.

    Raintree's Club Regina in the corridor is another one.

    Villa del Palmar and Villa del Arco are non-mandatory ai with exchanges but often listed as mandatory with extra vacations.

    Portfinio, Tesoro, Playa Grande, Sol Mar, Publo Bonitos and Villa del Palmar are ai non-mandatory. The Fiesta Americana is listed as non-mandatory but I think that is changing soon.

    Have you considered looking at the corridor or SJD ?

    I own at Fiesta Americana - I guess that is why AI is optional for us.

    Hi terces,

    I did a search for Cabo Resorts that are not all inclusive or are all inclusive optional. I have listed what has availability in RCI Points as of this evening.

    There are more resorts in Cabo and San Jose del Cabo that you will find in the RCI Directory. Sometimes they show up as available or sometimes they never show up in searches.

    Start with a search of the resort directory, narrow it down to the area you want, then check if the resort is , non AI, all inclusive or AI Optional. One resort may have a few codes, so be sure to check all the codes for the “Optional All Inclusive” RCI Resort Code.

    We have stayed at Hacienda Del Mar, Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach, and Playa Grande. All are very nice. The Playa Grande is right in town. You might want to also consider staying up in San Jose Del Cabo. Really nice town! the Cabo Azul, Grand Mayan, and Worldmark Coral Mar are all there. I haven't seen the Coral Mar Resort, but Cabo Azul and the Grand Mayan are both really nice. You might be able to do a direct trade with a Diamond Resorts owner or a Worldmark owner into Cabo Azul / Coral Mar.

    We stayed at Grand Mayan a few years ago and enjoyed it, but opted for PBSB last year because, although GM is not AI mandatory, their resort fees are pretty close to the AI fees at other resorts. PBSB was very nice, but a bit expensive on resort if you are not on the AI. Some food and drink are reasonable, but others are stupidly expensive - my wife's margarita at poolside bar came out to about C$20 (US$15ish) for one drink.

    Tough decisions though - we enjoyed SJD much more than CSL as destination towns, but I think PBSB was a much nicer resort.
