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
My boyfriend and I absolutely love this resort!! The venue is so beautiful, the view is breathtaking, the food is delicious! and the service is fantastic as well! We appreciate the entire staff (waiters, hosts, receptionists, concierge, cleaning crew, etc.) everyone always with a big smile and so helpful. We loved one of the staff members, Mario Green!! He is one the entertainers, and he definitely showed us a great time! He took us to the main Bars and dance clubs. He got us free drinks, and we never had wait in line for anything. Complete VIP service with Mario! Thank you for making our vacation that much more fun by showing us how Cabo loves to party!! See you soon again!
This was our first all inclusive trip, and we were a bit hesitant going in having heard of how 'cheap' these things usually are. But my husband and I on a getaway loved the Marquis and the people. From the start, we were warmly greeted and informed of the hotels food options and schedule of events. After a brief walk around, we hit the pool area, where again we were immediately warmly greeted by a gentleman who wanted to assist us in getting chairs, towels, and umbrellas. In fact, there was someone there every morning for us when we came down from the room, after eating breakfast on our balcony overlooking the pools and ocean (Such a great way to start the day). We never had an issue getting seats even though there was a wedding that same weekend with many guests.
The food was great- having several different options to choose from each night. We had to wait a few minutes one night at peak time, but this was not an issue. Pool side- the service and food were great as well. This is where we actually usually ate lunch. Why leave such a beautiful spot? I cannot say enough about Jose. Jose, Jose, Jose!! He was the best waiter you could ask for. He was so attentive and kind, always had a smile on his face. He brought us drinks when he noticed we were getting low, without us having to order them, and he even brought some new ones for us to try out. Anything you needed, Jose was there.
One night, we splurged and reserved the romantic beach dinner. We had a room credit, so it did not end up being too expensive, but it was worth every dollar. The staff spends the greater part of the day setting it all up between the combed beach, the fire pit, the pergola, and beautiful dining area. Just that makes you feel pretty special knowing they are doing all of that for you. That night we arrived to lanterns and rose petals leading the way. And to top it all off, Jose was our private waiter that evening. As soon as we saw he was there, my husband and I knew that it was going to be a fabulous evening- and it was! After dinner, we arrived back at our room to a drawn bubble bath and rose petals.
DJ Johnny and Christian did a wonderful job each day getting the guests involved in activities. They had such great personalities and were fun to be with. They were in no way pushy about having you do things. They just let you know what activity was going on and asked if you were interested. If not, they just kept on going. After a day or two, they knew what activities you liked and which ones to just let you relax by the pool.
Overall, I would highly recommend Marquis to any couple or friends looking for a great getaway where you do not need to worry about anything- it is all taken care of. We hope to be back again soon : )
My husband and I try and get to Mexico every year and we’ve found ourselves going back to this little piece of paradise 4 times now.
You just can’t beat the views, food, and awesome event staff.
DJ Johnny, Fernando, Mario: they do a great job at keeping you entertained and making you feel welcome. We absolutely love them!
Pool volleyball, beach volleyball, cornhole tournaments, target shooting, bacci ball, frisbee, basketball, poker, blackjack, yoga, water aerobics, trivia games. Do as much or as little as you want throughout the day. So much fun!
Each and every room here has an ocean front view with a balcony.
Watch stingrays jump in the ocean with pool side service all day, several restaurants to choose from for a delicious dinner (the sushi is amazing) and drinks with entertainment at the bar each night.
I’m telling you, it’s an amazing place to be.
My mom, sister, and I recently visited the Marquis in Los Cabos. It was such a great vacation. We especially loved the staff who were a constant source of entertainment, laughter, and joy. We especially loved Mario who continually made sure we were having fun!
Nice property. Onsite restaurants offer good food. The French restaurant (additional cost and limited reservations) is outstanding. You can enjoy varying activities with onsite activity team or just relax by the pool.
Rigoberto is one of the attendants at the pool and he is on top of things. The rooms are nice and well kept. Housekeeping does a great job. It is all inclusive, but the employees work very hard so a few bucks here and there is genuinely appreciated.
