Marquis Los Cabos
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
I surprised my husband for our third anniversary with a trip to Cabo, and after reviewing several resorts, I settled on the Marquis. Got a great deal with flight on Expedia. We arrived to see the breathtaking, arched lobby with views to the ocean, and were treated to a refreshing cocktail upon check-in. Our room was on the fourth floor and it was very nice. We loved the view, the morning coffee and pastries, and the large bathroom and jacuzzi tub. Let me start by saying a little about the vibe of this place. I think hotels should be described by the vibe you get while there. The Marquis vibe is swanky, but relaxed. Not a party place if that's what you're into. There is one outdoor bar for the evenings, but don't expect DJ's at the pool or party music or EMD stuff. The crowd was varied, but I saw more 25s-50s aged couples than anything else. The dress is relaxed to dressy. Each morning we enjoyed the hearty breakfast buffet, although it was nice to order off the menu too. The pools are amazing. We had much of the infinity pools to ourselves. The view is the ocean a few hundred feet away, but the water is too rough to swim in. We lounged by the pool for several hours a day, interspersed with some fun activities like archery, bean bag toss and rifle shooting. Each day we had one of the many Ceviches for lunch while poolside (we tried them all, and they are all amazing). The pool wait staff work hard and we tipped them well. The sunsets were beautiful and that was our cue to grab a coffee at the café and get ready for dinner. The girl in the café made us the most delicious coconut coffees and there are COOKIES in the cafe all day ;-)Dinners were all delicious and we tried each place. We reserved our anniversary dinner at the French place, which charges about $68 each and has several fancy courses, each delightful. I think the menu changes daily. We tasted some premium tequilas, and the bar was well stocked. The live music was nice almost every night.A few negatives... there was some sort of alarm going off at 2 am. We tried to call the front desk but got no answer. -There is no book in the rooms detailing the hotel and restaurant choices, so you have to figure that part out on your own. -Yes, the stairs in the pool are a little hard to see and yes, the drinks on the menu are sugary, but if you know what you want the brands are top notch. -The prices in the spa seemed too inflated, even for a San Diegan. But, this is absolute nit-picking and if you see a bad review in here, it is because the people are REALLY picky. They are probably from the Midwest and eat bland food. This resort is awesome and relaxing and we really had a great time here. In fact, I could totally go back next year and I would love it.Tips: Don't forget to book a ride to and from the airport. You shouldn't have to pay more than $30 each in a shared shuttle. Don't use a taxi, they are priced three times as high as the shuttles.-Don't plan on taking a taxi to town unless you want to spend a lot of $$, however there is a free hotel shuttle on Saturday nights I think. We never left the resort because we didn't feel the need to.-There are vendors on the beach who will come up and sell you stuff. They are used to negotiating so do your best-Ladies- don't over pack. Take a few sun dresses or maxi's, some shorts and your swimwear. You wont need your heels.
it only has two nice things, nice view and customer serviceat the restaurants. It only has two of my six key points in a beach hotel.What does it miss? Beach, confortabilty, things to do, food and drinks are very slowIt does not has a beach, as ridiculous it sounds, it does not has beach even you must sign a letter that you will not use it. The closest beach is in "8 minutes" walking, at least the receptionist said, and also that isn't true, it is like 20-30 min because you have to walk in the sand and rocks, very unconfortable, and when you arrive to the beach there is not place for sit down because is in the hotel Hilton. So if you are a beach person as myself you will be very dissapontment. Unconfortable, just because you cannot sleep, all night you hearing trucks, cars, busses, etc, because the hotel is in the side of the highway, plus as the first light from the sun it will get inside the room. Something nice of the room is that it has hot tub and with a good size, sométhing else is that you wont hear a thing between rooms, only the cars passing by the highway, that really sucks.There is not much to do in the hotel, in the day here is a group activities as most hotels, voleyball, yoga and acuanaerobics, but it only has three pools, nobody uses the one in the center because you cannot see the sea, so there are two, not climatized btw, they are usually "cold" if you want hot water only at the spa and you have to pay 15 USD. It doesnt have pool table or play room, even at night there is a live band near the bar.Slow service, it only has 1 bar durong the day, there is not pool bar, neither near the beach, thre is only one and it is actually hidden in one of their restaurants, if you want a drink the waiter(s) try to do their best but it is slow. In the restaurant everything is slow, it will take you 1 hour every meal, even in my last lunch I had to stress the captian from the "snack" restaurant because i had to leave in 20 min and the food was not served.The nice things, the view very nice sunset pictures and the beach even if you cannot enter is beatiful, but you can just get your pictures since the beach is in the highway.... The customer service at the restaurants is very nice, even the food is good, waitress(es) do their best and they speak spanish and english very wellIf you are not a beach person and only care for anplace to do nothing with no problem with the cars/trucks at nigh this is the place for youBut is very expensive... you can find better deals
My husband and I were at the Marquis the week of Thanksgiving. We had a lovely room overlooking the Ocean.The room was clean and fully stocked. The resort is beautiful with an infinity pool overlooking the ocean with plenty of lounge chairs and terrific poolside food & beverage service. The Entertainment team were incredibly energetic, as Jenny and Adriana kept us all moving with water aerobics, beach volleyball, and some competitive games. We enjoyed some wonderful live music in the lounge and a great show of mexican dancers. On Thanksgiving day they rolled out an incredible spread of turkey with all the trimmings. The Breakfast staff, couldn't do enough to make our stay memorable. What can we say, the service was beyond excellent. Special thanks to Entertainment Staff, Adriana, Jenny, Angel, Mario, Jhony OJ, Fernando, Pool Crew: Rene, Joseph, Azucene, Aruro, Angel, Breakfast Team: Pablo, Tamaro, Francisco, Martin, Samuel, Andres, Sandra, Isaias, Bar Lounge: Salvador "NEMO" Thank You all for making our trip so wonderful. We will be back!
We picked Marquis los cabos based on tripadvisor reviews, I take my time to read the bad and good experiences of travelers because all comments are really helpful to make good decisions and have a great time in our vacations. Despite I am a great follower of reviews I don't write anyone unless I have a complaint. I thought that I could've let it go without telling others about our experience in the resort. We have been on cruises and many different resort always all inclusive, We love the Caribbean particularly Cancun. We have been enjoying several resorts in Cancun so our standard for all inclusive hotels is really high. I never had a complaint about anything out of ordinary, we always have good time and enjoy the facilities, the food and honestly we are kind of easy going people. We went to Marquis to celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary and we wanted to try a different destination with other type of environment . We came back from our vacations disappointed because the overall experience was not what we expected. The first night We wanted to try the Italian restaurant and found out was located outside near the pools. We order our meals and after 5 minutes waiting the chair on which my husband was sitting collapsed in pieces and he felt on the ground, that was not very pleasant for either of us. Very uncomfortable situation and embarrassing in front of the other guests and a chance for him to get hurt. He scratched his arm but (not a big deal) he said, We recognize the staff came to make sure he was fine and replaced the chair for another one which was in somewhat of the same condition.. The next day I got up early to workout at the gym which is very small and was under restorations , when I came back to the room I found my husband at 7 :30 am already up complaining of the worker making noises with a weedeater by our room. The hotel really needs lots of updates, the tub is not comfortable for two people and cut off due to the motor overheating and didn't start back for 15 minutes . We saw roaches in our room and outside around the bar, the grounds and the cactus are not in great shape, the food is okay, the drinks are very thin and sugary, tried the pizza made in the oven and we didn't like it. There is only one show during the week to entertain the guests and We really enjoyed itThe staff was polite but We noticed they were expecting a tip and We tipped the first day but never done that in our previous all inclusive resorts. The management sent a cheap champagne with 4 strawberries in apology for the incident with the chair but We couldn't drink it because the taste was horrid. Over all We are grateful nothing major happened but definitely We won't come back, I hope things like that don't happen again to other people and I as said to the manager who came to talked to my husband about the incident with the chair, could've been my parents or any other older person that could be injured because of lack of maintenance of furniture . Please make sure your hotel is safe for you guests.
My husband and I visited Marquis Los Cabos for 5 days, 4 nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary and a birthday. The good things that will make us return:- Incredible corridor location; beautiful turquoise blue water, huge empty beach, and powerful crashing waves that sounded amazing throughout the resort.- Perfect size resort; not too big and spread out but also not too small. Always plenty of pool chairs at any time of the day with attendants constantly clearing towels off chairs no longer being used. In pictures, the pools look smaller than they actually are. They are spectacular with plenty of space for everyone.- Excellent maintenance and architecture; from the open arch lobby & waterfalls, to the infinity edge pools, and into our room where everything was well cleaned and designed. We especially liked that the majority of rooms have great ocean views and we did not have to pay a lot extra for our ocean front room on the 3rd floor. No regrets with skipping the upgrade to a plunge pool casita as our more standard room exceeded our expectations with comfort, cleanliness, view, and overall luxurious feel. - Food was overall pretty good for an all-inclusive resort (we have stayed at several). Some things such as the ceviche for lunch at Dos Mares and the Paloma cocktails at the main bar were standouts. We ate everywhere except Canto del Mar and only did not eat here due to its schedule and being closed two of the four nights we were there. In terms of house wine, the sparkling white was better than other all-inclusive resorts we have visited. Cabernet & chardonnay was average; drinkable but not great. Liquor choices were excellent. - Excellent room and pool service. We ordered a LOT of drinks throughout the day at the pool and always felt extremely well taken care of - we did tip every round. We also ordered room service several times for extra drinks as well as food and the speed of delivery was amazing. The food we ordered was also always hot and fresh. - Overall vibe of the resort was very chilled out and relaxed with great music at the pools. Some improvements could be made in the following areas: - Less emphasis on buffet style dining. Both Pergola (dinner) & Vista Ballenas (breakfast/lunch/dinner) set up buffets every day and also provided (if you requested) a menu to order from. We found the staff seemed to have a preference for us to eat at the buffet vs. ordering off the menu which might have been okay if the selections changed more each day. The buffet choices and lack of new items were especially disappointing for breakfast. - Updates to the Mexican themed night would be great as we found the outdoor buffet to be a little below average considering selection (add more seafood options), presentation (very poor lighting), and overall preparation (some things cold and some rocket hot). - If you wanted to hang out and have drinks at a bar, there is only one bar in the whole resort which did not open until 3pm each day. It would have been great for this bar to open earlier in the day by 11am or noon. Even better, an additional bar around the pool/Pergola restaurant area would be a great improvement.
