Last year, Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, was devastated by Hurricane Odile. The damage was extensive, totaling $1.2 Billion USD, and causing many of the hotels to close. The resilient people of Los Cabos have been working hard ever since to rebuild and come back stronger than ever!
A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to stay at the Marquis Los Cabos for the first time. The Marquis Los Cabos has been a longtime favorite for vacationers from around the world. Nestled on a prime piece of Los Cabos corridor coastline, the Marquis Los Cabos has 235 rooms and 26 suites.
From the moment guests arrive they are wowed with the stunning lobby views. At the Marquis Los Cabos, every single room on the property has an ocean view. The property even has a few casitas with private plunge pools!
One of the best features at the hotel is the breakfast niche. A pitcher of coffee and basket of pastries is delivered to your room and placed in the niche between 6am and 8am everyday, ideal for those who don’t want to be disturbed early in the morning.
The Marquis Los Cabos is an all-inclusive resort which means meals and beverages are included in the cost of your room. Unlike other all-inclusive resorts in Mexico, the Marquis takes pride in food preparation and presentation. The hotel currently has six restaurants and cafes, covering all types of cuisines including French, Mexican and Italian. The hotel also uses top shelf liquor and offers a variety of interesting cocktails. One of my favorite meals was at the Japanese restaurant, Sakke. We enjoyed several courses including miso soup, sushi, spring rolls, and topped it off with a teppanyaki show that was one of the highlights of our stay!
If you are looking for a vacation where you can disconnect and relax, this is the spot for you. The infinity pool matches the color of the ocean perfectly, which creates a view that is unlike any other. On the other hand, if you are looking to let loose and spend your time doing different activities, this is also the spot for you! With daily activities like beach volleyball, aqua aerobics, beer pong tournaments, and night time activities like trivia night, poker, movies on the beach, and bar crawls, the most restless traveler is sure to be entertained.
Now on to the rooms…we stayed in a Junior Ocean Front Suite, which has all of the amenities you can think of. The mini bar is fully stocked with cold beverages and snacks, which are great if you just want to relax on your balcony and take in the view. The room is spacious and comfortable, with Mexican hacienda style décor. A full size hydro-massage tub (complete with bath salts!) is available for those who want to take a relaxing bubble bath and wind down. Did I mention they have L’Occitane amenities? The beach and the pool make it hard to even think of staying in the room, but when you do it is a great, relaxing environment where you can recharge your batteries.
While the beach in front of the Marquis Los Cabos is not swimmable, a short 5 minute walk down the beach leads you to one of the best little swimming spots on the corridor, Playa Bledito (aka Tequila Cove).
So, if you are looking to be pampered by friendly staff in a picture perfect location, look no further than the Marquis Los Cabos. Have you been to Los Cabos recently? If so, please share your experience in the comments below!
