Marquis Los Cabos
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
My husband and I went to the Marquis for a 5 night getaway. We rented a car and drove ourselves - beautiful check in area, lovely welcome drink. We booked the least expensive room and did not upgrade. The room had a partial ocean view and was on the far north side of the hotel on the lowest floor. You could see the ocean a little bit over the buildings in front of you. Overall, we really enjoyed the room itself (very nicely appointed - huge shower, comfy bed), the layout of the property... everything was beautiful, and the service was exemplary 90% of the time. We ordered room service twice for small items and it was really fast! Also the coffee/pastries delivered each morning came at totally random times but the coffee stays hot for hours! Once there were tiny ants that got our pastries before us, but no worries!Our favorite restaurant was Sakke - dined there 3 of 5 nights - Though the sushi was not all "authentic," it was very good and was INSIDE in the air conditioning. The tempan was really fun and delicious. Also a shout out to Cesar, the bartender in Sakke. We hung out there a bit since it was a small bar INSIDE! The entertainment staff - Mario and the other gentleman were really fun and did a great job involving people. Really the great majority of the staff did a great job. We tipped almost all the time. We had fun playing pool AND beach volleyball, bean bag cornhole and ping pong :) We met some other couples by the pool that were friendly, but for the most part. The pool areas were not a PARTY VIBE and mostly chill. The music varied through several different playlists of different styles. The biggest negative about the trip was the HEAT. I will never go to Mexico again in August... I totally underestimated how much the heat would suck the fun right out of everything. So, that leads me to my critical comments. Almost everything is outdoors. The only bar is outside... where it's like 80 with a humidity of 80 at 8:00 at night. Vista Ballenas is fine for breakfast, but the food is mostly subpar for lunch or dinner but your only other options are Dos Mares (which has great ceviche etc, but is in the heat death corridor by the pool) and Pergola which is also outside. :(( We only dined in both restaurants one time each, So, not sure how long it is deathly hot, but the dining/bar options are not optimal in such heat. Also, regarding the heat, the pools all heat up to bath water type temperature after noonish so it SLIGHTLY cools you off, but pools are only relatively cool in the morning. Obviously this is not the hotel's fault but just for your information when considering the time of year you go. Pool areas are gorgeous with comfy chairs, tables and ample umbrellas. 75% of the time the pool service was decent, but there were several times that 3 different servers forgot my drinks or took almost 30 minutes to deliver - and the hotel was only about 1/3 full. We played golf at Palmilla and unfortunately had a snorkel/sail cruise cancelled due to wave size. So, more good than bad - and much of the bad was due to the time of year we went. Pleased with the Marquis overall :)) Cheers!
The staff of Vista Ballenas Breakfast was absolutely amazing. They truly make you feel so welcome and pampered. Karla, Adriana, and Florinda were all so sweet and wonderful! The resort was one of the cleanest we have been to. The beach was empty and deserted. You had it all to yourself, it was very romantic! We have been to a few different resorts and we're bombarded by people trying to sell you things, this was not the case at Marquis. Every staff member goes above and beyond to make you feel like a king/queen. Will be coming back very soon!
We visited this hotel for our 20th anniversary and stayed 6 nights in August. This is our first visit to Mexico.We used Costco tour. This is so useful because you book a room once, you don't need to arrange for a flight schedule and a shuttle between airport and hotel. I recommend to use Costco travel with $100 credit. The following is pros:1. Check-in --- Entrance of the hotel is so beautiful and check-in is there (outside). We had a kind of trouble with our room, but staffs dealt with it rapidly and it was solved. This problem made a proter who carried our luggages hard work. I felt so bad to him, but he didn't show any negative feeling on his face at all, just smiled and said that our satisfaction makes him happy. I was so impressed. Welcome drink and cold towel for face are excellent service for this season!2. Rooms --- All rooms face to the ocean, so you can see so wonderful view from your room! Room is clean and maintained well anytime, so you can feel comfortable all day. All amenities are L'Occitane products. The room has enough free space for two people and two sinks in the bathroom are so helpful for us. 3. Dining Vista Ballenas (Mexican) : We went there for breakfast every single day. Basically, buffet style, and also order from the menu is available. Dishes of the buffet is slightly changed every day. My favorite dishes are Quesadilla with red source and hot vegetables. Coffee is wonderful! Very tasty. Pastries, fruits and vegetables are always fresh. One pastry I had just a slightly sweet, so I love one. This pastry is not with icing. Canto Del Mar (Mexican): I strongly recommend to try Mixed Ceviche!! I chose one from not too spicy styles. AMAZING! I deeply regret that I didn't have a chance to eat Ceviche again before leaving.Pergola (Italian): Very good most dishes, but some dishes are a bit salty for us. There is a "Taco day" for lunch once in a week, and they are tasty, too! Another my favorite one is "pizza bread," it's not a really dish, maybe like appetizer. It looks like a dome, but there is nothing inside. It's herb taste and so great with dipping source of olive oil and balsamic. Sakke (Japanese): We made a special order "Nigiri" because there is no Nigiri on the menu. I'm Japanese, so I wouldn't say sushi dishes (not only sushi, though) in this restaurant are not authentic actually, but fishes are so fresh and tasty. Therefore, I put this restaurant into the pros list. I found spell mistakes of some dishes on the menu, I wonder I should tell you correct spell?4. Entertainment --- They have many programs every day. Some of them are same, but I'd say there are many kinds of programs. What I attended was; Beach walk, Mini golf, Riffle shooting, Cooking lesson, Aqua gym, Archery. I missed Spanish class for some reason. There are also some night events, so you can enjoy dinner and show at the same time.5. Staffs --- Excellent!! I really thank each and every staffs of restaurants, waiters/waitresses at the pool side, entertainment, and housekeeping and more. And special thanks to a) Adriana and one more lady who was concerned and gave some advices about my husband's terrible sun burn at Vista Ballenas Breakfast staff. I'm really sorry I don't remember her name. b) Two lady concierges and a nurse in the hospital (Very sorry, I don't know their names)c) Fernando and Mario (Entertainment staffs) They welcomed and helped me a lot in many events. Very friendly and attentive to us.6. Services --- Some staffs at the Vista Ballenas and at the Spa celebrated our 20th anniversary with a piece of cake and a card. It made us so happy. Cons : a) There is no privacy in the bathroom. The door is made of glass and some places are used see-through glass. There is no door between the bed room and the bath room, so we can hear everything what's going on in the bathroom.b) It's a little bit hard to set up the comfortable room temperature with air conditioner, specially during the night time. I really recommend to spend your precious time at Hotel Marquis Los Cabos. Definitely, we'll go again as soon as possible!
From the moment we arrived, to checking out, we had such a great experience for our Fab 50th birthday celebration! The room was very clean upon arrival. All amenities were tended to. The food was delicious. Recommendations for day trips were very helpful and fun. Definitely recommend!
Just returning from a week-long stay at this property. The views are spectacular and the staff very friendly and attentive. It is HOT during this time of year so definitely plan your stay around the weather. The hotel has several restaurants on property but our experience was mixed as some were closed on certain days and others had an extremely long wait (1+ hours). My suggestion would be to definitely call ahead for seating options. There is an ample menu of room service available 24 hours/day so this makes up for times when you would just like to enjoy in-room dining. I really liked the personal daily coffee service as well. Nice touch! I would recommend this property if you are really just looking for a relaxing low-key vacation. If you like some nightlife options or a very lively vibe, this may not be the property for you.
