Set back from Medano Beach on Cabo San Lucas’s picturesque boat basin, the Marina Fiesta Resort & Spa is an all-inclusive retreat with an adobe-style sandstone exterior in hues that complement the arid landscape. The open-air lobby features wrought iron chandeliers, potted plants, Mexican textiles and rattan furnishings. Swim in the free-form pool and sidle up to the bar for a frozen margarita, or carve out some time at the spa — treatments range from hot stone massages and deep cleansing facials to beach-inspired body wraps, such as detoxifying seaweed and tropical mango. Get your workout in at the seventh-floor Sky Gym, an open-air fitness center overlooking the marina, before eating back all the calories at the à la carte restaurants. You can visit La Presto for ciabatta sandwiches, antipastos and big bowls of pasta, or settle in at La Palapa for shaded poolside eats and drinks, all prepared in an open-air patio kitchen. Rooms on all levels give off a nautical vibe, with tile floors, carved lighthouse sculptures and anchor-patterned pillowcases and bedspreads. Splurge on a Nautical Two-Bedroom Suite for a full kitchen and a private balcony with marina or pool views.
In the Area
Cabo’s desert-meets-ocean landscape is alluring to adventure travelers and sun worshipers alike, and Marina Fiesta is within walking distance of many of the region’s top attractions. Active types can book surf lessons or rent a kayak; you can paddle out to Cabo’s iconic red arch at Land’s End and spy on the resident sea lion colony, or bring a snorkel and mask and look for sea life near Neptune’s Finger, a jagged rock formation that juts out from the water. If you’re looking for something less active, you can set up camp at Medano Beach; the iconic stretch of sand on the Sea of Cortez is only a seven-minute walk from the resort — and it’s one of the few that’s safe for swimming (the water is too rough on the Pacific side of the peninsula). World class golfing is on offer at the Country Club San Lucas, an 18-hole course set amid cacti and bougainvillea, and retail therapy abounds at the Luxury Avenue designer shopping mall, home to Gucci, Tiffany’s, Rolex and Fendi.
How to Get There
My daughter was married in Cabo March 2018, and most of her 50 guests stayed at Maria Fiesta. We all had such a memorable time. The hotel and area is safe, full of fun things to do like whale watching, fishing, shopping, yummy restaurants, and is in an overall gorgeous setting. It is located next to the marina and the beach. Everything is in walking distance. The staff are all welcoming and accommodating. We loved the food, drinks, and the pools! The rooms are very spacious and clean. I hope someday to return.
Enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Comfortable rooms. Big plus - access to shopping, restaurants etc. Very hard to get a place by the pool unless you get up very early to put a towel on a lounge chair. (5:00 a.m.)
Very nice comfortable resort. Had a really nice stay. The location is the best! It gets a little loud at night from the bars across the Marina. The restaurants a really good. We liked Jack's steak house the best. It has it all. The service is fantastic! Christian real takes care of you! Stay away from the sushi place!
This hotel is an incredible value. The marina is the place to be, and this hotel is just steps away from the marina. When you travel it is always nice to ditch the rental car and just walk wherever you want to go. You are close to the beach, dozens of restaurants and downtown.
My room was a Junior Suite. The room was twice the size of a normal hotel room. It had a bed, a sitting area, small kitchen and a balcony.
The concierges arranged several of the trips that I went on. They even were able to get me booked on two trips at the last minute. The bellmen were great. They always got me a cab when I needed it.
My buddy said that the Sky Gym was awesome (sorry I don't workout when I am on vacation). I did check out the Sky Bar on the fifth floor. This is a great place to wind down at the end of the day.
Had the best time last year with my girl friends, so we had to take our husbands this year! I can't imagine going anywhere else in Cabo - and I can't say enough positive comments about the Marina Fiesta and its sister property. We are so grateful to Carmina, the Manager in Reception, who saw we had a lovely suite which truly set the tone for another incredible vacation. Our experience was even better this year, if that's possible, with the addition of Luis, the entertainment co-coordinator, and Antonio, the Concierge, who assisted our husbands with a fishing expedition - they each caught a Marlin (and released them). Thank you Carmina you are a fantastic manager who looks after all her guests (and staff). I am coming back again. We have recommended the Marina Fiesta to our adult children and lots of friends who are planning to spend vacations with you.
