Wedged between celeb hot spots San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, the 235-suite adults-only Marquis Los Cabos Resort & Spa is an all-inclusive hideaway that’s big on romance and seclusion. The Leading Hotels of the World member is a crowd-pleaser, from the open-air lobby and its waterfall cascading down to one of the three pools (two of which are infinity-style) to the attentive staff and breathtaking ocean views at nearly every turn. Starting at 650 square feet, rooms are spacious, with dark Mexican-wood armoires and colorful woven fabrics. Small sitting areas and oceanfront balconies come with every suite, and generous bathrooms have oversize tubs. The eco-friendly property has two bars and five restaurants that offer everything from French cuisine to seafood specialties. Meals at Vista Ballenas are memorable – don’t leave without trying the stuffed chile with huitlacoche sauce. The 13,000-square-foot Maya-themed spa is worth a visit, too. Featuring all-natural treatments and materials, the menu includes chocolate and seaweed body wraps and decadent massages. The best part? The all-inclusive rate means most daytime activities (cooking, Spanish and dance classes, tequila tastings and wine pairings and yoga) are covered.
In the Area
Go to Deckman’s in San Jose Del Cabo for higher-end cuisine and an extensive Mexican wine list, Casiano’s for modern interpretations of Mexican classics like chiles en nogada and flan, and Flora Farms for a gorgeous setting that redefines the phrase “farm-to-table.” Every Thursday night between November and June, there’s an Art Walk in charming San Jose del Cabo. Visitors can stop into numerous galleries, sip wine and try dishes from popular neighborhood restaurants. Rather hang out on the water? Learn to ride the waves at Mike Doyle surf school.
How to Get There
This is my husband and I’s second time to Marquis! Celebrating our anniversary, we knew this would be the perfect place to unwind and relax. The views are breathtaking and the staff go above and beyond to be accommodating.
Located between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, it is a bit more low key than downtown Cabo. There are still plenty of activity and excursion options so you can get your fix if you’re looking for some adventure. We love this place mainly for the chill vibes. We are constantly on the go at home and this place really makes you stop and enjoy the moment.
Adriana’s warm smile greeted us every morning at Vista Ballenas. Ramiro and Jorge also took great care of us during our meals. We did a couples massage and Norma and Teresa worked magic! Eduardo from transcabo at the Marquis was the best driver! From our airport arrival to a trip downtown one evening, he went above and beyond to make sure we were well taken care of.
The only area I would like to see improvement on is the food. Food was average for an all inclusive option. Our favorite meals came from breakfast buffet and lunch (they do have the absolute best ceviche!). We booked two private dinners (part of the romance package and beach dinner) and paid extra for the French restaurant experience - incredible views and service but the quality of food could have been better. Not sure I would pay extra for these options again.
One major drawback is at the Dos Mares restaurant. The chairs in there are made of wrought iron and when they are moved across the aggregate floor they make an absolutely horrendous ear piercing conversaton stopping screeching sound which totally ruins the ambience of the place. Something really has to be done to correct this. Occasionally the same problem is created in the Pergola Italian venue again destroying the the whole peaceful atmosphere of the place.....
I cannot say enough about my visit last October with my friend Jaimie. We stayed in the Ocean Front Jr Suite for 5 nights and had the most amazing experience. This was my 8th time in Los Cabos and my 4th stay at the Marquis. The reasons why I continue to come back is due to the impeccable service, the delicious food, the amazing room views and the attentive staff.
Since we lived at the pool, I have to personally thank the pool staff lead by Azucena and her team, Javier, Arturo, Oscar and Alberto. They all ensured that we never had to leave our lounge chairs for food or a cold drink. (Shout out to Chantel our chef that made us a special sea food platter) The entertainment crew which included Mike, Aron, and DJ Johnny? were constantly busy recruiting guests to join in on the various activities the resort has to offer. (thank you, Mike, for the great ping pong battle)
Last but not least, I would like to personally thank Salvador (Food and Beverage Manager) and Liliana (Manager of Guest Services) for all of the personal attention to make sure that we had the best vacation ever. Truly, with these two at the helm I believe the service would not have been as special.
Thank you again for everyone at the Marquis for a truly remarkable experience and we will be back again in the near future.
