Places to stay in Los Cabos
Los Cabos, the southernmost tip of Baja California, is home to both the raucous Cabo San Lucas and the artistic San Jose Del Cabo, as well as everything in between. Mexico is popular destination for vacationers. Cabo San Lucas is a famous tourist destination across the world because it has something for everyone and a distinct culture of fun. Are you thinking of taking a trip to Los Cabos? In search of an opulent vacation in Cabo San Lucas? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Furthermore, Cabo San Lucas in Mexico is home to some of the best resorts in the whole globe.

Best places to stay in Los Cabos

The area surrounding Los Cabos is a fantastic place to stay. Because of its abundance of bars and nightclubs, Cabo has a reputation as a party town, however, there are hotels with a calm atmosphere as well. 

When visiting Los Cabo, these are some of the best hotels to consider staying at.


Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal

The Waldorf Astoria is located in the exclusive Pedregal neighborhood of Cabo San Lucas. One of the favorite premium gated neighborhoods in Cabo is Pedregal, where the Waldorf Astoria is situated. 


Even amid the many expensive alternatives in Los Cabos, this hotel epitomizes luxury and stands out. You are given a bottle of tequila as soon as you arrive. Throughout your stay, they’ll provide distinctive touches and one-of-a-kind service. 


The rooms here have a plunge pool and a patio with views of the ocean! Even though the Pedregal region lacks a swimmable beach, the views from the beach are magnificent, there are four resort pools on the property, and there is a gorgeous spa! If you’re a Hilton Honors member, you may want to think about utilizing points as this is also a Hilton hotel.

One & Only Palmilla

With its white-washed walls, red tile roofs, and Spanish colonial feel, the One & Only Palmilla stands out from other 5-star Cabo hotels’ ultra-modern construction. Nevertheless, it offers every amenity possible to all tourists, from contemporary (a telescope on your balcony for whale watching), to conventional (a personal butler to unpack your clothes), to sports (there are five tennis courts and a 27-hole golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus).


Every day, you also get complimentary Mexican fruit and cocktail snacks, and your room comes with personalized robes.


Palmilla is a gated ultra-private community that has long been popular with the rich and famous. Jennifer Aniston, as well as nearly every other celebrity you can think of, frequents the One & Only. If you’re staying at the One & Only, I also recommend renting a beach cabana for the day. They set us up on a completely private beach with a floating bed, lounge chairs, lunch, and cocktails. It will be fantastic, and you will have the entire resort and beach to yourself. This is one of only a few upscale Cabo accommodations with a swimmable beach.

Le Blanc Spa Resort Los Cabos

Le Blanc Spa Resort, which is exclusively for adults, is the epitome of a genuinely opulent all-inclusive vacation in Cabo. With its magnificent white-hot design, high-end drinks and booze, excellent standards in à la carte cuisine, and free access to the water adventure circuit at the spa, it actually gives the Grand Velas Los Cabos (#7) a run for its money. 


Rooms are cozy, cool havens. They offer beach bags for your stay, Lavazza coffee makers, and marble bathrooms with Bulgari bath products. 


You have no justifications for not exercising but a cutting-edge fitness center provides a variety of daily activities to keep you fit, such as spin, pilates, and dance fit classes.

The outdoor pool area is also lovely, with plenty of lounge chairs for all guests. There’s no need to get up early to reserve pool chairs here!


If you pay attention to your sense of smell, you’ll notice that each area of the resort has its own subtle aromatherapy scent.


Yes, Le Blanc easily joins the group of Cabo’s top 5-star hotels.

Nobu Hotel Los Cabos

Nobu Hotel Los Cabos is a creation of the newly formed Nobu Hospitality company, which also includes actor Robert De Niro and producer Meier Teper.


If you’ve ever eaten at a Nobu restaurant with a Michelin star, you know how amazing the cuisine is. On the Pacific Coast, a few miles outside of Cabo San Lucas, Robert de Niro and famous chef Nobuyuki Matsuhisa have created the first Nobu hotel in Latin America. The buildings and landscape were constructed by the same architectural group that transformed the Four Seasons Mexico City from fusty to stunning. 


There are 200 suites, several of which have their own private plunge pools. They have spa-like bathrooms with Onsen teak soaking tubs and Italian stone vanities and are decorated in white and light wood. Bed linens made of organic cotton are used. Yoga mats and wet swimsuit bags can also be found in your room. Each of the four resort pools has an own atmosphere.


At the “party” pool, the champagne is flowing freely. A beautiful adults-only place for serenity and solitude is the infinity pool, which is located away from the “see and be seen” scene.


One of the main benefits of staying here is the cuisine. Nobu Restaurant Los Cabos serves superb Japanese fusion cuisine, featuring famous dishes such miso black fish and rock shrimp tempura. The Ardea Steakhouse is also a great place to eat at night. Malibu Farm’s outpost is also alluring. For lunch, it serves healthy vegan coconut tofu, ginger Wagyu beef with carrot arugula, avocado pizza, and other options.


Because of the resort’s location on the Pacific side of the coast, the pools can get windy and chilly at times. On the plus side, the lower rates here will make your wallet happy when compared to other 5-star Cabo San Lucas hotels (and other top Los Cabos resorts).


If you’re a foodie looking for a quiet getaway from Cabo town’s bustle, this is the best luxury hotel in Cabo San Lucas.

Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos

The Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos is conveniently located 20 minutes from the airport, midway between downtown Cabo San Lucas and the airport. After climbing the front stairs and passing through the driveway’s security gate, you’ll enter the open-air lobby, which has views of the resort’s pools and the ocean. As we check in, welcome beverages are given to get us in the mood for the weekend.


The rooms are roomy and kept up well. If you overspend and book a swim-up room, it will be an unforgettable and completely justified experience. If you can get a swim-up room that connects to the adult pool, go for it. The swim-up rooms have the added benefit of not allowing children under the age of 13, so they are generally much quieter and splash-free. The adult pool is much more seclusion and quieter, but it doesn’t have views of the beach. It has a bar where Mary prepares some amazing beef tacos that are not to be missed. The infinity pool is right on the beach and includes a swim-up bar, which the adult pool did not.


The food at the Hyatt Ziva was among the best you’ll find at an all-inclusive resort. There are several restaurants, each serving a distinct type of cuisine. All of the restaurants have a dress code, and it appears that they primarily do not want beachwear. If you can drag yourself out of bed, you should definitely go to the breakfast buffet. Along with the excellent service, the food is  plentiful and delicious.


The resort also provided a wide range of activities, and there are a few “off-campus” options like visiting the bizarre Mango Deck and a neighboring oasis of a restaurant.

Cabo's best attractions to visit while you're there

The bustling main strip of Medano Beach serves as the core of this party paradise, and taking a water taxi from Medano Beach to visit the arch, which is a beautiful rock structure where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean, is highly recommended. Ask the cab driver to drop you off at Lover’s Beach nearby the arch, which has access to two distinct oceans on either side.

Try to go to San Jose Del Cabo as well; it’s a charming, creative town with lots of shops.

As you can see, Los Cabos is home to a wide range of fantastic lodging options and activities.


The question, “What are the best places to stay in Los Cabos?” cannot be answered simply. The answer really depends on your travel goals for Cabo (e.g., a swimming beach, close and easy access to town, adult-oriented).


Knowing that there are so many options available is fantastic. After selecting one of Cabo’s top resorts, you’ll be in holiday nirvana.
