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
Still here one more day. It is a very average stay nothing special. Staff is very nice and helpful but level of service is not what I paid for. A 7 day stay and our room has only been cleaned twice. Our main complaint besides the lack of room cleaning is the breakfast omelet cook, he had his hands in the food constantly, after wiping his hands on his face, through his hair ect. My husband became very Ill and still is 24 hours later after eating breakfast. Please enforce food handling hygiene to your employees. This was our 25th anniversary and although I told them nothing special was done kind of disappointed. Overall nice staff and convenient location we probably won't be a return customer.
We had a wonderful time at the Marina Fiesta. The hotel staff were excellent and attentive from the time of check-in to the time of departure and everything in-between. However, if you are looking at resorts with all-inclusives, this resorts all-inclusive experience was slightly different than what we had experienced before. With every meal/drink/snack that you have you must fill out a chit with your room number and signature. There is also a spot for gratuities which felt like an expectation each time. This left us feeling our wallets were constantly being opened. It was for this reason that we chose an all-inclusive in the first place. That is, to not have to worry about tipping and/or carrying money around all the time. The food at the restaurants was excellent, however, do know that they are on the marina (not within the resort) and that you cannot take any to-go/take-away boxes from the restaurants (we wanted to take some for an excursion later that day). The café listed is not included in the all-inclusive - the box lunches etc are for purchase and not included. This was very misleading. Given that the restaurants are off the resort this left you inundated and overwhelmed by the hordes of street vendors on a daily basis. Aside from these unexpected occurrences, our stay was great and the staff excellent.
Andrea was at the aqua bar pool helping my kids making bracelets. Two different pools on the property also with a kiddie pool. Marina Fiesta for us is in a great location on the marina. Enjoy the restaurants and beach just a short walk away.
This was our first experience in Cabo, and a great one at that! It was my husbands birthday, checking in with Jose, he was sure to listen to our needs, the room view of the pool and marina were phenomenal! The staff, from the bell desk, valet, bar maid service and concierge were all very friendly! Thank you Gaby for making my husbands birthday so special with the personal note and gift it warmed our hearts. We will be returning with the family soon! Thank you MFR!! You are truly the best!! If there is one suggestion to make it would be to keep the pool open longer than 8pm, especially during the summer hours! Thank you for everything!!
The staff at Marina Fiesta Resort made us feel like family and met every need with a smile. We were upgraded to the Presidential Suite and it was fabulous. Valet parking for the car and the massage at the spa was excellent.
