Take a look at the best kid-friendly hotels in The Corridor.
Located along the secluded Tourist Corridor between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, The Westin Los Cabos Resort Villas & Spa isn't close to much -- aside from the beautiful beach (with rough waves) and the airport. Rooms are large and sleek, and there are numerous gorgeous infinity pools with ocean views. For some (particularly couples), the seclusion, quiet, and stunning desert coastline setting of this resort is the major draw. Its kids' club and large rooms make it a good choice for families as well, but partiers and beach bunnies may consider staying at a resort on the calm waters of Medano Beach, close to the hopping scene of downtown Cabo San Lucas.
Perched on a cliff overlooking the Sea of Cortez, the massive Hacienda Encantada Resort and Residences is one of the top upscale hotels in the area, known for its sweeping views, beautiful pools, and all-inclusive options. All 237 rooms are Mexican-inspired and feature modern amenities: flat-screen TVs, iPod docks, and balconies. The resort is ideal for families, with a massive kids' zone, plenty of games, and an activity pool. There are several dining and drinking options -- Italian, Mexican, and buffet -- and a few wellness choices such as a small spa and fitness center. Though sun loungers are set up on a rocky stretch of shore, there isn't a real beach here. Past guests have complained about everything from time-share pitches to closed restaurants. For those who want sand access, the Casa Dorada Los Cabos Resort & Spa is right on swimmable Playa el Medano.
The upscale Dreams Los Cabos Suites Golf Resort & Spa is a popular all-inclusive option on The Corridor in Cabo. The resort's contemporary Spanish-style design carries over to the 308 suites, all of which have minibars, furnished balconies, and premium cable. There isn't much within walking distance of the property, but couples and families who stay here are kept plenty busy on-site. Highlights include seven restaurants, four bars with top shelf liquors, two outdoor pools with activities, plus a spa and modern fitness center. There's also a full beach setup, though like many hotels in the area, the water is usually too rough for swimming. With a kids’ club, daily DJ sets, and evening entertainment, expect an energetic (and often noisy) atmosphere. For an alternative closer to downtown Cabo, the Playa Grande Resort & Grand Spa has similar rates and features, plus rooms with kitchenettes.
The 270 rooms of the Sheraton Grand Los Cabos are spread out in colorful buildings across pristine grounds. The room decor itself may not be that exciting (tiled floors, rare pops of color, and local artwork attempt to create an authentic vibe) but everything is modern, including flat-screen TVs and crisp white linens. Every room has a private terrace, many with gorgeous ocean views. The private beach, where the waves can get a bit rough, is rarely crowded. And the hotel also has three pools, one with a swim-up bar. It's a good choice for families, with a kids' club and four on-site restaurants, but the hotel is a 15-minute drive from downtown Cabo, so partiers may want to stay closer to the nightlife.
