The term "all-inclusive" is used pretty liberally these days—something all too many travelers realize once they've shown up for their vacay only to find out the resort actually charges extra for amenities like top-shelf liquor, all-day dining, and 24-hour room service. Rather than leave things up to fate, we've read the fine print for you and found 7 Los Cabos all-inclusives that actually check out.
Secrets Puerto Los Cabos Golf & Spa Resort
With 500 suites, eight restaurants, four bars, a 13,000-square-foot spa, and an 18-hole golf course spread out across 18 ac, Secrets Puerto Los Cabos certainly isn’t a well-kept Resort Corridor secret—and that's for the best. All accommodations come with private furnished terraces and balconies as well as whirlpools for two, but chances are you won’t be spending much time in your room. The adult-only all-inclusive really ups its game when it comes to culinary offerings; reservations are never required, so you can stuff your face with fresh seafood, traditional Mexican, Pan-Asian specialities, gourmet Italian, and more at a moment’s notice, plus, top-shelf spirits are also unlimited, so you’ll have no problem washing it all down. When you’re not imbibing, go for a dip in the pool, drop by a weekly theme party, watch a movie on the beach, or arrange for a deep sea fishing or scuba diving excursion.

Marquis Los Cabos All-Inclusive Resort & Spa
You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more dramatic, statement-making lobby than the one at the modern, adults-only Marquis Los Cabos. The all-white, open-air space has deep archways that expertly frame the turquoise waters of the Sea of Cortez—the “aquarium of the world,” as Jacques Cousteau called it. Hacienda-style rooms are done up in colorful sofas and Mexican artwork, not to mention deep-soaking tubs and ocean-facing balconies (whether you're in a junior suite or a private casita). Spend your free hours floating in the infinity pool, indulging in a hot stone treatment at the 13,000-square-foot spa, or trying all six of the on-site restaurants—24-hour room service is available, so we’re confident you’ll be able to get it done.
Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort
This resort—the very last on the Los Cabos strip—feels luxuriously secluded thanks to a covetable address where the usual hotel development gives way only to dunes and desert. Last December, the Towers at Pacifica debuted—three new buildings (with 47 guestrooms) which form a resort-within-a-resort. With an exclusive oceanfront VIP lounge and a state-of-the-art, ocean-facing fitness center, the Towers are a bit more luxe than the other buildings, but all guests enjoy minimalist design (think: teak furnishings and soft hues; all-inclusive amenities like access to the heavenly Armonia Spa; premium alcohol (as well as tequila tastings); daily yoga lessons, pool and beach butler service; and shuttle service to sister resorts where you’re welcome to go crazy at 23 restaurants and 12 bars.
Hacienda Encantada Resort & Spa
Tucked away on a rugged, granite cliff coastline overlooking the Sea of Cortez, the all-suite Hacienda Encantada blends traditional Mexican design (see: handcrafted textiles from Guadalajara) with luxe amenities for an elevated Baja experience. The resort’s signature all-inclusive package— aka “Dine Out Privileges”—offers unlimited onsite food and beverage, as well as access to a handful of restaurants in the downtown Golden Zone Marina; exclusive use of the spa’s meditation area and temazcal; activities like cooking and cocktail classes; and 24-hour concierge service.
Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos
Keep your eyes peeled for deals at this all-age all-inclusive and you’ll get a taste of luxury for less than $300 a night. At that price, you’d expect corners to be cut, right? But no, not here—all-inclusive amenities include dining at seven onsite restaurants (try out Spanish tapas, sushi, rustic Italian, local specialties, and more), unlimited cocktails (or beer, or wine—whatever’s your speed), access to an array of pools (including adult-only and infinity), beach and pool butler service, and family-friendly daily activities. When it’s time to tuck away for the night, you’ll find a spacious, handsome guestroom done up with handmade furnishings, a spa-inspired bathroom, and state-of-the-art electronics.

Breathless Cabo San Lucas
Located on Medano Beach, Cabo San Lucas’ safest swimmable shore, Breathless Cabo San Lucas is a contemporary, adult-only Baja stay that pulls out all the stops. The Ultimate-Luxury experience includes unlimited top-shelf spirits, 24-hour room service, beach and pool butler service, theme party access, daily activities (which run the gamut from pole dancing lessons to giant Jenga games), and gourmet dining at eight different restaurants—no reservations necessary—with specialties that run from Eastern Mediterranean to Italian. The all-suite property also wows with post-card perfect ocean and marina views from every guestroom, and close proximity to Cabo’s famous nightlife.
Paradisus Los Cabos
A $35 million dollar renovation turned Melia Cabo Real into Paradisus Los Cabos last December. The sprawling San Jose del Cabo property may have received a design facelift, but it was already working with a more than enviable location thanks to a swimmable private beach—something nearly unheard of among the area’s other resorts—and 18.5-acres of lush garden surroundings. Sophisticated suites are streamlined and clean with all-white interiors and private furnished terraces. Guests who opt for the all-inclusive package will find all-day drinking dining options across seven onsite restaurants (including Gastro Bar, helmed by Michelin-starred chef Martín Berasategui) and seven bars (including swim-up), 24-hour room service, live evening entertainment, dedicated family concierge service, and exclusive pool lounge access.
