Distance: 7.7 mi from The Corridor + Esperanza Resort, An Auberge Resort - Los Cabos
Melia Cabo is a sprawling, 305-room beachfront all-inclusive in between the cities of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. Common areas feature chic modern decor touches, like bright red lounge chairs in the lobby and flowy fabrics draped across ceilings and outdoor patios. Rooms are spacious, clean, and come with an airy, fresh style (though some feature old tube TVs). The grounds are lovely and feature plenty of lounge seating and cabanas, assorted ping-pong tables, a sprawling pool, and even a swim-able (though small) beach area (unusual around San Jose del Cabo, where waters are rough). The pool's swim-up bar is a perk, but has received some complaints of poor upkeep, and the "separate" kiddy pool is really just separated by some in-water pylons -- though an impeccable 10-person Jacuzzi is perched on a top level overlooking the ocean. Being that it's not within walking distance from Cabo San Lucas or San Jose del Cabo much dining, drinking, and entertainment will be done on-site; only two restaurants are available, which may feel a bit limiting on a long vacation.
