On the Marina near downtown Cabo San Lucas and Medona Beach
At the southern tip of Mexico's Baja Peninsula, Cabo San Lucas -- a beach town on the stretch of coastline collectively known as Los Cabos (The Capes) -- has long been a popular vacation spot for sun-worshipping party seekers. (Hence, the nickname Cabo San Loco.) As the name would suggest, Marina Fiesta is located directly on the city's marina, which is within walking distance of both the beach and downtown Cabo San Lucas.
Downtown Cabo San Lucas is filled with dining, shopping, and nightlife options. Being on the marina also makes catching ferries to nearby attractions like Playa del Amor and Land's End convenient. Despite the bustling activity, the area is safe and patrolled by police.
The 155 suites at the all-inclusive Marina Fiesta Resort & Spa are clean and spacious with a subtle nautical theme. The beds and furniture are comfortable (though the furniture in some rooms feels worn and dated), the showers large, and the bathrooms clean. But the hotel's location near downtown Cabo San Lucas may be its greatest draw: Staying here puts you a few minutes' walk away from popular Medano Beach, shopping at the Puerto Paraiso mall, myriad dining options, and vibrant nightlife.
