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
You will not be disappointed if you stay here. The pools are fantastic. The views of the ocean while you are sitting in the pools is supreme. The staff from Ana and Juan in the sweet shop to each and every server in all the wonderful restaurants was outstanding! The rroms are super clean and very lovely. The nightly turn down service and not to be forgotten are the morning pastries delivered to your room daily really stand out! The swimmable beach is just 15 minutes walk(bring your tennis shoes for this).
We arrived on a Thursday noon and were greeted with refreshing drinks as we checked in. The room was exactly as pictured and the view for an Oceanfront Jr suite had an incredible view of the ocean! We had a beautiful view of sunrises and sunsets!! Everyone on staff was friendly, courteous and helpful. The food was excellent, no matter where you chose to dine. The resort offered many on site activities, we only left the resort one day to go shopping downtown. There were plenty of pools or beach to relax by. Swimming in the ocean is not recommended but a short 10 min walk up the beach you can swim. On our last day the staff at breakfast greeted us with well wishes for our trip and a special treat. They made us feel very special on our first trip to Cabo!
I just spent four days at this beautiful resort and had a wonderful time! Most notable was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Everyone had a smile and was eager to make our stay great. The location, activities and amenities were wonderful. There was a varied age range of guests (with the exception of children because it's adults only!). Everything was extremely clean and well-appointed. My only recommendation would be to install handrails on the stairs, for the comfort and safety of "older folks" llike me!
Our third visit to Marquis Los Cabos proved to be the charm for us. The staff seemed to have upped their game this year and had virtually no service lapses. From Adriana’s friendly greetings each morning to welcome us to breakfast to the understated and professional service we received from Jesus for dinner at Vista Ballenas, the extra effort to raise their service standards was evident throughout.
Additional mentions to Liliana and the rest of the front desk staff, the entire team at Dos Mares for lunch each day (love the ceviche menu!!), and the poolside staff who kept us hydrated throughout the day! This visit was all about the service, and the Marquis staff really delivered.
Changes that were made to the bar area delivered a much improved experience there. Continued efforts to maintain the facility are evident. Still, there are some areas that could benefit from upgrades including pool loungers, bathrooms and towels (in the room).
As mentioned in our previous, and other, reviews, the Marquis delivers on low-key and quiet relaxation. If you are looking for a high-energy party atmosphere, it won’t be for you. Personally, I hope it stays that way. The Singray music that is played at the pool is okay, but did get a bit repetitive. The solar-heated pools were pretty chilly in mid-October when we visited. Not sure if they have the ability to heat the pools, but imagine they could get pretty cold by January.
Although we were hoping to make it a 4th year in a row, it looks like we may be blocked out for our 2019 trip to Cabo in mid-October. :(
This is hands-down our favorite resort in Cabo. We are now planning our fourth visit there for March 2019. Wonderful service, clean facility, great food and drinks. Getting a spot at the pool is never a problem. Can’t wait to go back!!
