Best All-Inclusive Resorts in Los Cabos

View all Los Cabos Hotels

Much like the Caribbean, travelers to Mexico often opt for an all-inclusive resort. For guests staying at the resorts most or all of the time, it's typically a better value to have all food and drinks included. But before you start booking, not every all-inclusive was created equal; some serve excellent dishes and top-shelf liquor, while others serve mediocre food and watered-down drinks. Fortunately, a team of Oyster investigators compared and evaluated the all-inclusive hotels in Los Cabos to see which were the best of the best. Take a look at our picks for the best all-inclusive resorts in Los Cabos, and get inspired!

  1. The all-inclusive, adults-only Pueblo Bonitio Pacifica Resort is a tranquil, upscale resort on a gorgeous beach. It feels removed and secluded from the Cabo nightlife, though it's only about a 10-minute drive away. The full-service spa includes a beauty salon, a meditation labyrinth, and beachside yoga classes, and all rooms have patios or balconies with ocean views. The only downside is the beach beds, which are only available for guests staying in Oceanview or Oceanfront Suites. But all guests get to take part in fun activities such as tequila and wine tastings.

  2. Grand Solmar Land's End Resort & Spa is set against the ethereal background of the Pacific Ocean and a massive natural rock formation that hugs the resort. This beautiful all-inclusive resort, located near the iconic El Arco, is inviting to all types of travelers, from families to couples. However, the hotel's all-inclusive plan does not include the shuttle service to and from the airport, so some wind up feeling nickel-and-dimed.

  3. Villa la Estancia is the high-end hotel in a cluster of three sister resorts, and offers a nice reprieve from the crazy, party hotels Cabo is known for -- the grounds are pristine, the pool'sswim-up bar isn't teeming with underaged partiers, and the rooms are large. Decor is a bit bland (although there are at least no typical floral motifs) and meals are expensive, but couples and families tend to enjoy the hotel's serene atmosphere, large suites, and location directly on a beach with calm waters (though the beachcan quickly get crowded).

  4. A great family-friendly option for Los Cabos, the 619-suite all-inclusive Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos offers guests a decent variety of activities and facilities. For the young ones, there's the kids water parkkiddy pool, and kids' club. For the adults, the on-sitespa, relaxing adult-only pools, and swim-up bar in the infinity pool are definite perks. Although the beach isn't swim-friendly due to rough waves, the pools offer more than enough space for taking a dip. Suites are spacious and luxurious, and echo the hotel's overall vibe -- big, clean, and modern. They also come with marble bathrooms, soaking tubs, and patios or balconies

  5. Friends and families with big budgets can stretch out in these pinch-me-now, three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom cliffside villas overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The luxury development is a few miles outside of Cabo San Lucas within a gated community under the umbrella of Pueblo Bonita, with sister resorts here and closer to town. Montecristo, for its part, offers 151 bi-level houses that can sleep eight guests each. Villas are similar in design with high-end amenities such as infinity pools, gourmet kitchens, and stainless steel Weber grills, to name a few. Guests are granted free access to Montecristo's own facilities, as well as Pueblo Bonito's beach, pools, and restaurants (all-inclusive packages are available). Golfers also have access to the award-winning Quivira golf course.

  6. The peaceful location of the Fiesta Americana is away from the main party atmosphere of Cabo San Lucas. All 249 rooms andsuites are spacious, with relaxing, neutral tones and interesting touches such as Mexican art and sculpture accents. Luxurious features include large bathrooms with soaking tubs and walk-in showers. The gorgeous infinity pool is a real perk here, along with the above average, plush lounge chairs and cabanas, both at the pool and on the beach. The location is excellent for access to Cabo's two championship golf courses, and kids can keep entertained with a kids' club room packed with toys, art supplies, games, and computers. Suite upgrades can make a trip to Fiesta Americana uber luxurious -- extra amenities includeoutdoor showers and private outdoor Jacuzzis.

  7. This grandiose adult-only resort that opened in late 2014 outside of San Jose del Cabo is practically a destination unto itself. Manicured grounds are sprawling (expect to walk often) and offer great views of the Sea of Cortez, especially from the two pools and golf course. All-inclusive rates are among the highest in the area, even for a luxury hotel, but the six bars and eight restaurants provide guests with plenty of food and drink variety. The 500 suites have modern amenities and playful, romantic touches -- some are swim-out. Though most guests are couples the resort also attracts big and sometimes loud corporate groups who use the conference center.

  8. All-inclusive Dreams Los Cabos Suites Golf Resort & Spa has the charm of a boutique hotel but the size and amenities of a luxury resort. Its Spanish-style architecture features high ceilings with wood beams, large archways, white marble flooring, and intricate moldings throughout. The palm-tree-lined infinity pool and several outdoor restaurants overlook the Pacific Ocean and the beachPortofino, which offers Italian fare, showcases luxe white decor with opulent candelabras, and an authentic sushi bar has Japanese-style floor seating. Each bright and airy suite features kitchenettes and flat-screen TVs, while the bedroomsare outfitted with dreamy bedding and soft drapes. Families tend to enjoy the jungle-themed kids' club, while the lovely beachis a highlight for everyone.

  9. The Riu Palace, located right outside of party-hearty Cabo San Lucas, is packed with entertainment. This colossal 642-room all-inclusive resort offers dining at six restaurants, activities, and nightly entertainment -- such as a Michael Jackson impersonator -- all included in the price (unlike many other "all-inclusives" in the area). While the resort is scenic with its manicured grounds, there are complaints about pool crowds and few lounge chairs being available. Plus, the rooms aren't as luxe as those at our top three picks.
