It’s not hard to miss Marquis Los Cabos along the highway that connects San Jose del Cabo with Cabo San Lucas. The all-inclusive resort located between the two towns sits beachfront with its iconic, open-air arched lobby welcoming you to the edge of paradise. A recent renovation in 2015 introduced its new, refreshing look, which transformed the hotel from yellow to white, ushering in a more contemporary vibe. With every guest room featuring an ocean view, there’s not a bad seat in the house and with nearby hotels not-so-nearby, the beach feels private and secluded. A 13,000-sq.-ft. holistic-inspired spa offers guests a full-service spa menu along with six hot tubs, a cold pool, a steam room and ten oceanfront treatment rooms. The resort’s main eye candy, however, is a three-tier central pool that sits below a massive 40-ft. cascading waterfall that pours out from the lobby level while two more infinity-edge pools face opposite each other, allowing for both sunset and sunrise views, all from the cozy comfort of a poolside lounger.
Aside from soaking up some rays, indulging at Marquis Los Cabos might be the easiest thing you do during your stay, with five restaurants dishing out international fare like Sakke, an Asian outlet with teppanyaki tables, dramatic floor-to-ceiling windows and a fresh sushi bar or Canto del Mar, an intimate space with only a handful of tables serving up elegant French cuisine. Other dining options at the resort include Dos Mares, a seafood-focused outlet serving lunch and dinner; Pergola, an open-air, poolside restaurant whipping up Italian cuisine and pizza in a new stone oven; and Vista Ballenas, a three-meal restaurant overlooking the resort and bright blue sea. An outside bar and small coffee shop top off the dining amenities.
For a more easy-going setting, the pool serves to be the ideal locale for guzzling margaritas and devouring mid-day snacks. But don’t be fooled; the laidback environment doesn’t mean the food is skimping on flavor. In fact, it’s quite the opposite, especially when it comes to the ceviche. Not only is it what Marquis is known for and oh-so delicious, but you can choose from seven styles, each reflecting a different region throughout Mexico and South America. We recommend the Yucatán style, highlighted by avocado and habanero chiles for a spicy addition to your sunny afternoon.
