With a stellar location overlooking the Los Cabos Arch, upscale ME Cabo is a beachside pleasure dome for party lovers. At the heart of the resort and the daytime action is an enormous palm tree–dotted pool, sandwiched between the honey-colored accommodation blocks and a prime stretch of Playa Medano. Active types can rent a kayak or spend time paragliding direct from the beach, but few guests get beyond ME’s tetris puzzle of white loungers and (pricey) cabanas, the handsome cocktail-wielding staff, or the DJ-led dance parties that begin early and go on until sunset.
Bed and Bath
All 162 rooms and suites are done up simply in neutral stone tones and splashes of blue and white, and they sport all the mod cons, including 300-thread-count linens, flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and, best of all, private furnished balconies. Lower-floor Aura Rooms overlook the manicured grounds and pool (they’re best for deep sleepers and the real party-seekers), while those on higher floors have views of the beach and open ocean. Power and Social Suites have the afterparty essential: private decks or hot tubs. Bathrooms keep things simple with stone tiles, porcelain fixtures and both bathtubs and standalone rainfall showers, plus luxe amenities by Aveda.
ME Cabo’s main draw is the on-site nightlife, especially at Mediterranean-style beach club Blue Marlin Ibiza Los Cabos, with its happy hours, DJs, live music and dancers. The morning after, grab a poolside Bloody Mary and then check into the Yhi spa, which specializes in body treatments and has a special Mexican steam bath. On the dining front, Tequila Fusion dishes up fusion Mexican favorites, Nikki Beach sticks to a crowd-pleasing international menu, and the breezy Deck restaurant offers up simple grilled fare.
In the Area
Stroll the Cabo San Lucas marina and book a sailing trip or dive excursion with local outfitters such as Cabo Expeditions or Manta Diving, and then duck into Nick-San for some of the best sushi in Baja California Sud. Cabo’s peninsula location makes for great waves, so surfers should check out Mike Doyle Surf School after fueling up on a solid sand-in-your-toes breakfast at Office on the Beach. More of a landlubber? No problem. Make the trip to San Jose del Cabo and sign up for the weekly Art Walk, which makes stops at the many galleries found along San Jose’s cobblestone streets. The San Jose side of Los Cabos is also a favorite with foodies. Don’t miss Deckman’s, where Michelin-starred chef Drew Deckman whips up three-, five- and seven-course tasting menus, and Flora Farm, where American couple Gloria and Patrick Greene have created a full-service organic restaurant experience on their home farm.
How to Get There
We have arrived today, had one night so far and have 2 nights remaining here. We got a delicious cocktail on arrival, and after that it was all downhill.
The room was approx $340USD per night, and was tiny, dark and they wanted $100USD extra per night for a view. The bed was uncomfortable, pillows seemed cheap and terrible.
The food in the restaurant is overpriced, and even on a quiet day (Monday) with 15-20 staff in the venue, it took around 10mins for us to be given a menu, and the drinks were so expensive (around $17USD for a cocktail that’s $6USD in the town) that we didn’t stay.
On top of that, the pool was closed for a reason they couldn’t explain to us so we couldn’t enjoy a swim, and we went back to our room to find our door ajar with no explanation how or why.
We came from a 3 star resort in Cabo with a huge room, beautiful views, great service and if it wasn’t so expensive to cancel these last 2 nights, we would have gone back there again.
Very disappointed with the whole experience, will not be back and do not recommend.
We have been greeted by Jose Castenada for over 26 years!! He's always smiling and gives me a hug when I walk in the door. We visited Cabo in October 2019 and love the special care we get from the excellent staff. Our room is perfect and luggage delivered promptly. We will be coming to ME Cabo again in February 2020 and can't wait to see everyone again.
We always stay at the ME Cabo for a week during our annual "snowbird" migration. We love the location, views and OMG the most comfortable bed anywhere. The staff are always extremely helpful and welcoming to us. Particularly Gaby in the time share office, Luis at the pool and the bellmen Jose, Sergio & Rene.
