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
This resort is close to the beach, restaurants and night life. The rooms are average and comfortable beds. We did the AI for a week and it was ok. Some restaurants better than others. The sports bar served typical pub food. The pool is small but that's ok. Not much for music, you have to bring your own. I would go back to this resort again, like I said I love the location.
OK stayed at 517, that room looks over the marina and was great. The room was huge, perfectly clean, with great tile floors. They get partying down on the marina (not the hotel, the bars) so my wife noticed that they sometimes party until 4am but I was out like a light.
All inclusive is probably the best thing you could do. The breakfast and buffet in the hotel itself is great, we ate there everyday. (Beetroot juice, Seasonal fruit juice, and the Green Juice... omg the green juice was like wheatgrass on steroids.)
However with the all inclusive, there are around 6 restaurants just on the marina outside the hotel. Jack's - steak was great. Lobster and Co. - catch of the day, and shrimp perfect. Simple sports bar there as well for watching games. We are from Vancouver and this town brags about it's sushi, but they are every much as good. Delicious!
Downside: You get over and over for pitches for either a presentation to buy in to a sister resort, and on the Marina it's non stop trying to sell you an activity. They need to just back off a little and I would approach them for once. Booking through the hotel itself seemed to be good, we did eBikes on the beach (awesome) and a snorkel. Just start ignoring the hawkers, they are pretty relentless.
Everywhere seemed safe within the core.
To the hotel:
All the staff are great. Thanks to all including the housekeeping.
Absolute Standouts: Nexai, Hector, Vladdy and I think Elizabeth made me learn some spanish. Also a mention to Gaby who was so friendly and helped us so much.
Bellboys: Rowdy, Carlos, Jhonny, Gustavo, and Alfredo were very courteous and helpful. Everyday we requested ice and trips to and from the freezer for fish we had caught. These guys were GREAT! Hope to see you guys again and keep up the good work.
Had such an amazing time. J Luis Velasro was amazing getting us scheduled with events and taking care of us the entire time. Must go again! Service was amazing and can not wait to go again. Do recommend friends and family to stay here.
My wife, son and I just returned from a fantastic vacation, the people were highly professional and friendly accommodating all our needs, we also enjoyed the Spa they too were very good a reasonable rates for great message experience. We are looking forward to return soon.
