The 7 Hippest Hotels in Los Cabos

Chris Sands | January 25, 2018

Sprawling brand-name resorts may be the norm in Los Cabos, but the cape cities do boast some outstanding boutique properties, places where the standard amenities are anything but standard. Recent arrivals The Cape and Breathless have brought a bit of urban chic to the area – not to mention an abundance of parties – but the benchmark for hip hotels in Los Cabos continues to be ME Cabo, which blends Art Deco styling and bikini glamor with bottle service and a gorgeous setting overlooking Medano Beach.

Marquis Los Cabos All-Inclusive Resort & Spa

Why it made the list

From its stunning arch-shaped, open air lobby to its signature French restaurant, everything about this adults-only resort says “stylish and sophisticated.” Suites showcase regional artworks and spectacular Sea of Cortés vistas, including views of the serpentine infinity pools snaking between the resort and its golden sand beach. Chef Thierry Dufour’s Canto del Mar is one of the finest purveyors of continental cuisine in Los Cabos, and the Marquis experience also includes en vogue activities options like wine and tequila tastings.

Secrets Puerto Los Cabos

Why it made the list

Swim-up rooms, an infinity-edged party pool, and a late-night music lounge are among the hip amenities at Secrets, an adults-only, all-inclusive in the exclusive Puerto Los Cabos development just outside San José del Cabo. Theme parties, live entertainment, and unlimited food and drinks contribute to the sybaritic atmosphere, as does an expansive spa that specializes in romantic couples’ treatments.

The Hotelito

Why it made the list

Few accommodations can seem both chic and downhome. The Hotelito manages the trick thanks to its talented owner, who used her architectural and design skills to craft a strikingly modern bed and breakfast, but also filled the property with abundant creature comforts (the high-quality beds are shipped from the U.S.), and a menagerie that includes a horse, donkey, dogs, goats, and sheep.

Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Resort & Spa

Why it made the list

Pueblo Bonito now has four resorts in Los Cabos, but adults-only Pacifica is the crown jewel. The drive into the Pacific Coast resort is winding and magnificently picturesque, ending at a beachfront oasis with soothing waterfalls, pampering spa treatments, and a trendy poolside party scene. The best boutique accommodations are in The Towers, a new resort-within-a-resort concept. The nearby Jack Nicklaus’ designed Quivira Golf Club was recently rated among the World’s 100 Best by Golf Digest.

Cabo Surf Hotel

Why it made the list

Surfers were among the earliest tourists to Los Cabos, drawn by the region’s year-round sunshine and array of superb (mostly right-hand) surf breaks. Cabo Surf Hotel is now the premier lodging for the upscale surf crowd, offering chic, boutique lodgings and a beachfront location on beginner-friendly Acapulquito Beach. Lessons and rentals are available through the on-site surf shop, while experts will find more challenging conditions at nearby breaks La Roca and Zippers (the latter is the site of the annual WSL sponsored Los Cabos Open of Surf) off Playa Costa Azul.

Hotel El Ganzo

Why it made the list

The name itself – a portmanteau combining gonzo, the balls-out journalism style pioneered by the late Hunter S. Thompson, and ganso, the Spanish word for goose - proclaims its boutique bona fides. The underground recording studio is probably the hippest feature at this Puerto Los Cabos based hotel, and the work of resident artists ensures that the property will never look precisely the same way twice.

ME Cabo

Why it made the list

A poolside nightclub and a prime beachfront location overlooking Playa El Médano have made ME the trendiest spot in Cabo San Lucas. Suite ME, the resort’s largest accommodation option, offers cool extras like a pool table and pinball machine, not to mention spectacular views of Land’s End. Suite ME also is outfitted with its own DJ set-up, although guests will find it hard to top the rotating cast of local and international DJs at Blue Marlin Ibiza. This hip nightclub hosts some of the region’s best parties, including a highly anticipated White Party each May.
