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
We just spent a fabulous 4 days at this gem of a resort! This has been our favorite spot in Cabo for the past few years and this was yet another amazing trip! The pools and grounds are beautifully kept and the food/drinks are amazing!
The entertainment staff have consistently been one of my favorite things about the Marquis:
Mario has the most warm and welcoming smile and personality! He has excellent social skills and professionalism and would do extremely well in many customer service positions such as bartender and front desk reception. We had the best time with him during our trip!
DJ Johnny has the sweetest personality and we had so much fun with him! From beach volleyball to barhopping, he had us entertained our entire trip. We felt very safe venturing into town and barhopping under his care! By the end of the trip, he felt like family. We look forward to coming back and hanging out with him again!
Mike is another wonderful asset to the entertainment staff, he is an incredible athlete and super fun personality! We met him on our trip last year and were extremely happy to see him again this trip! We got to hang out with him during on site activities every day which was a huge highlight of our trip.
Fernando and Christian made all the on site activities so fun that there is really no need to leave the resort for expensive excursions. From tequila tasting to archery to beach volleyball, both of them were excellent teachers and kept us well entertained our entire trip. They are both excellent volleyball players and gave us Californians a run for our money. Playing beach volleyball with them was the highlight of our trip! Also a special thanks to sweet Dilberto for capturing amazing moments of our volleyball game for us!
Whoever does the hiring for the Marquis staff are doing a great job! We look forward to our next trip with this amazing staff at this amazing location!
Our second visit here and it did not disappoint! The food was very tasty and we couldn’t get enough of the ceviche! What made our visit so much fun was the staff! We really enjoyed getting up and playing volleyball and enjoying the other various activities offered! Mike, Mario, DJ Johnny, Christian and Fernando always showed us a good time! They are so professional and fun! Their presence is such a great addition to an already great resort! I hope their bosses appreciate them as much as we do!!! Thanks for a wonderful visit and we look forward to our next trip here...
My wife and I have been coming to the Marquis for 7+ years. We had previously stayed at other resorts but found the Marquis was EXACTLY what we were looking for. Great food, beautiful beach, awesome pools, and plenty of on-site activities all make this a wonderful destination.
However, the staff are what truly set the Marquis apart. Where do I begin?
DJ Johnny - such an incredible person who looks for every way to ensure you have a great experience. His kindness and warmth are so welcoming, and we have loved spending time with him during our stays.
Mike - if you are looking to get off our lounge chair and get some exercise while having a blast, Mike is your guy. He does a tremendous job hosting several of the activities on the property and makes sure everyone feels welcome to participate. Mike is awesome!
Mario - you will absolutely love Mario’s charm and humor. He has a smile that you will see from across the resort, and you know if Mario is in the room, it’s time to party! Mario is sweet and caring, and will go out of his way make sure your stay is perfect.
Fernando - this guy is a killer on the Volleyball court so look out for his serves! Fernando is a great guy who oversees the activities and helps keep everything running smoothly. He does a great job with his staff and I am so happy he takes care of his people as they take care of their guests.
Christian - he will encourage you to participate on all the events the hotel has to offer without being pushy. He has a great sense of humor and obvious soccer skills, so don’t challenge him to a futbol match.
Karen - Karen also has a great sense of humor and may crack a joke or two as you walk by. She is really funny and also a tremendous server. We had her at the Sake sushi restaurant, and she remembered our complex order without any mistake. She was very quick to take care of us.
Cesia - Cesia is one of the bartenders at the central bar and makes an excellent Gin and Tonic. She loves gin and can make some solid recommendations. She is so sweet and friendly.
Dilberto - this guys gets the award for the best selfie on our vacation. We asked him to take some pics of our volleyball game only to find an extra selfie in our roll. We were cracking up. This turned out to be our favorite picture of the trip. Great sense of humor!!!
To our extended Marquis family: thank you again for another wonderful visit. You are all incredible people, and we are honored to have been your guests. Thank you for making our visit so enjoyable and memorable!
To anyone visiting the Marquis: please take care of our wonderful friends. It would be easy to stick to yourself on vacation but if you spend time getting to know the people around you, you may just make some incredible friends.
Visited in Jul 2018. Simple decor resort. Overall, I really enjoyed the food and grounds. Loved the infinity pool overlooking the ocean. Could order a lot of food by the pool. Exercise room was a little small and limited, but I made due. One bad was none of the ice machine in my building worked. I had to go to the front desk and get room service to bring me ice. Would definitely go again.
We just returned from a 6 night stay and are already missing it so much. Check-in was smooth, and they honored our request for a 5th floor room view. Our room was very clean, spacious and welcoming. And that million dollar view?!? Beautiful! The balconies are a bit small but are furnished with a small round end table and two chairs. Not large enough to have a meal out there, which would have been wonderful. We ordered the American breakfast room service two times and it was great. The coffee....Oh the coffee. I admit we are coffee snobs, but the coffee they deliver to your niche every morning was almost undrinkable. The coffee in the restaurants and coffee shop tasted a bit better. Maybe because of the cream and stevia we added. There is a Nespresso machine in the room with two pods, but we didn’t try those as we don’t like espresso. The ice machines did not work on the 5th floor. We didn’t realize how much we missed having ice in our drinks!
We never had a problem finding chairs at the infinity pools. They were comfortable and the pool towels were big, soft, and abundant. I read several reviews about the pools being freezing. I don’t know when they visited, but I thought the pools were like bath water on a hot 90 degree day! I would have liked them colder, 😂! Soft music played from speakers at the pool but I didn’t prefer the music choices. I think they need to liven up the place for at least a few hours during the day. Play some upbeat music. The bathrooms were pretty far away from the pools which always makes me think everyone is peeing in the pool 🤢. Had to walk around a grassy hedge-lined area to get to them. They need to make a walkway from the pool to the bathrooms to make it easier to get there. I didn’t like the beach peddlers being able to walk right up to the infinity pool I was lounging in and ask me to buy something several times a day. They should not be able to get that close! Beach yes, touching the pool? No. Sad to not be able to go near the water because of the strong tides. That could be a dealbreaker for a lot of people, but it didn’t really bother us, as we are pool people.
The service at the pools was great. Always someone making rounds for drink and food orders. Arturo was very sweet and a hard worker. Azucena (Suzy), the assistant manager of the pool food service was so cheerful, friendly and welcoming every day. She’s such a hard worker. She always checked on us, making sure we had everything we wanted.
The meals we had were very good. With only three inclusive restaurants, (had to pay $176 for fourth, French) I think the resort does a good job with variety. The Pergola was our favorite for dinner. Get the Fillet de Manzo and the Fettuccini Frutti de Mare. My favorite meal. Antonio (Mario), Scarlett, and Nelson offered great service. Dos Mares pool restaurant for lunch had the best tasting ceviche I’ve ever had.
I could go on and on (and I kind of have 😂), but what sets this resort apart from others is the staff. They are genuinely friendly, hard-working, and want to ensure you have the best experience. And we did!
