The Best Hotels in Los Cabos for When You Plan to Party the Night Away

Chris Sands | February 02, 2018

The vibrant nightlife scene in Cabo San Lucas is centered around the juncture of the two primary downtown thoroughfares, Marina Blvd. and Lázaro Cárdenas, where residents and visitors alike crowd into club meccas like El Squid Roe and Mandala to dance, romance, and party into the wee hours of the morning. Some area resorts, attempting to compete or to offer all-inclusive alternatives, have opened their own clubs, whose attractions range from world-class DJs to costume themed dance parties.

Dreams Los Cabos

Why it made the list

Dreams is one of the better family-friendly resorts in Los Cabos, but still offers plenty for adults to do once the kids have gone to sleep. After dinner at one of the seven all-inclusive restaurant options, stop by for a drink at the elegant lobby bar Rendezvous, then join the past midnight partying at the trendily appointed Desires Music Lounge and Night Club (the similarity of its name to the club at Secrets is no accident, as both properties are under the AMResorts brand).

Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Resort & Spa

Why it made the list

Adults-only properties tend to be the ones with the most memorable on-site nightlife possibilities, and that’s certainly the case at Pueblo Bonito Pacifica, where The Towers resort-within-a-resort concept includes the stylishly decorated Peninsula Lounge & Beach Bar. Cocktails and tapas flow throughout the afternoon and evening, with the house DJ providing positive vibes to accompany the spectacular ocean view setting.

Paradisus Los Cabos

Why it made the list

Meliá spent over two years renovating and rebranding what formerly was Meliá Cabo Real, and is now the newly minted and pristine Paradisus Los Cabos. Guests may choose between seven bars and seven restaurants – including Gastro Bar by Martin Berasategui, the oft Michelin star awarded Basque chef – but for those in the mood for nightlife, the standout is Gabi Bar, the hip second-level club perched above seafood specialist Gabi Beach.

Why it made the list

Swim-up patio suites and a massive party-friendly infinity pool are only part of the luxurious lifestyle experience that is Secrets Puerto Los Cabos.

Sandos Finisterra Los Cabos

Why it made the list

The late-night disco at Finisterra is dubbed the Stones Club, a nod to the 1983 wedding between Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards and model Patti Hansen, which took place at the resort. Lead singer Mick Jagger was best man, and the small palapa under which the ceremony took place has been retained as a sort of cliffside monument to the occasion. The ocean view Stones Club nearby is fitted out with accents – from Union Jack carpeting to mounted guitars behind the bar – reminiscent of the band and their English roots.

Hotel El Ganzo

Why it made the list

El Ganzo has earned its bohemian bona fides, hosting resident artists who have added their own distinctive touches to the property, inviting notable musicians to its underground recording studio, and serving as the preferred Los Cabos getaway destination for a certain bad boy Hollywood actor. The Ganzo Downstairs Bar is where creative cocktails and colorful personalities meet on a nightly basis. Check the hotel’s cultural calendar for special events and performances.

ME Cabo

Why it made the list

No property in Los Cabos is more associated with party-hearty nightlife than ME Cabo, a boutique resort with a privileged setting overlooking Medano Beach. For years, the on-site Nikki Beach Club was the center of the local poolside party scene, brimming with bikinis, bottle service, and pumping beats from an array of resident and imported DJ talent. Nikki Beach never reopened after Hurricane Odile in 2014, but its spirit now lives on in Blue Marlin Ibiza, which has taken over the poolside party responsibilities, including signature events like the annual Memorial Day weekend White Party.
