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
This hotel is on the best beach Medano where you can actually swim in the ocean. It is 5 minutes to town by taxi or you could walk 15 min . I think the taxi is safer but many restaurants are 2 min walks. We were upgraded to a petite suite which is really a room overlooking pool and ocean but it a was very nice view. The staff tries to make you happy and texts you a lot to check in with you . It’s best to book directly through the hotel bc you will get a better rate and some coupons for drinks and food. Water is extra and is expensive which I think they should give more complimentary not just 2 bottles at night .
It is mostly adults which I liked. I would definitely stay again. The town is safe but you still need to be aware of your surroundings. Also there are a lot of people That solicit you to buy from them activities , merchandise and drugs all over the beach and town. On the beach there are other cool and reasonable beach bar restaurants like the sand bar and Mangi deck . The office is there too but was closed this week.
Excellent service, beautiful facilities, spa is great and the personal trainer was really helpful. Food is exquisite and the DJ’s really know how to get the party lit on Satursdays. Definitely coming back in the future!
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in Cabo San Lucas. I would definitely recommend the ME Cabo to my friends and family. The location is great. The area and city felt safe. The hotel grounds are well kept and the views are breathtaking. You are within walking distance to downtown bars, shops, convenience stores and eateries. There is even a McDonalds within walking distance. Anything you want is right there at your fingertips. The hotel cleaning team is one of the best I’ve seen. The overall staff is friendly and helpful. The only person we took issue with was the pool guy. He overlooked us until we literally had to stop him. We observed him go above and beyond with other guests. Here is what you should know the resort does not allow outside food or drinks. We found the resort drinks and food options to be extremely pricey. Higher than usual hotel prices. I suggest you go outside of the resort to eat and drink. This was advertised as an adults only resort. However, we saw a few children running around. We later found out this resort also has condominium residents (explains the children). We had two very uncomfortable and inconvenient power outages. The resort did not volunteer an explanation for these outages. We engaged the concierge via text message to inquire about the issue which he blamed on the city power supply. We did not receive any concessions for this major inconvenience. The a/c in my room did not blow cold air consistently (if at all). We had 3 rooms between the 6 of us; each room was a different temperature, although they were all set that the same temp. Overall, the ME Cabo was an great choice.
