The dreamiest Cabo all-inclusive resorts
Why is Cabo San Lucas so amazing? Let’s start with its stunning beaches, beautiful blue seas, sunny weather, striking rock formations and abundance of bars, restaurants and entertainment offerings. And if you’re on or near the West Coast, it’s a no-brainer, since this Mexican hot spot on the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula is just a three-hour plane ride from major cities like Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix and Denver. Oh, and did we mention the vast array of dreamy Cabo all-inclusive resorts? Well, we should have! Not only do they look like they belong on a postcard, but since everything’s included in your rate, they will make budgeting and planning incredibly easy.
So, have we officially convinced you to book your next trip to Cabo? If the answer’s yes, then you’ll want to keep reading to find our top picks for the destination’s best all-inclusive resorts!
What’s the best time to go to Cabo?
Cabo has year-round warm and sunny weather, which means there’s not really a “bad” time to visit. High season is generally between November and April, which also overlaps with prime whale-watching season (early December through mid-April). That said, keep in mind that this is also when Cabo will be more crowed and costly.
Low season, July through mid-October, brings fewer crowds but also the hottest temps and the rainiest weather. That said, you’ll also find lower hotel rates, which may be a draw for those on a budget. Shoulder season (May through June, and mid-October through November) serves as a happy medium, with fewer crowds and great weather.
How we chose the best all-inclusive resorts in Cabo
We sifted through hundreds of TripAdvisor reviews and consulted with travel pros to bring you the best of the best. The accommodations we chose all have private balconies or terraces, and most also have all-suite accommodations with amenities like bathtubs and water views. We also looked for resorts with bonus features, such as included non-motorized water sports, free spa access and state-of-the-art kids clubs, to name a few.
Just keep in mind that while all the best Cabo resorts on this list are located along gorgeous swaths of sand, not all of the beaches are swimmable. Unlike other warm-weather vacation destinations such as the Caribbean, which have warm, calm waters, some Cabo beaches have rough, strong currents. With this in mind, only some of these resorts are situated on swimmable beaches, but most are just a short walk or drive away from other excellent swimmable beaches.
Now, without further ado, scroll on down to see the 10 best Cabo all-inclusive resorts. And don’t forget to check out these all-inclusive resort tips so that you can make the most of your trip!

Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos
The beachfront Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos has something fun for guests of all ages. But, before diving into that, let’s cover the basics: Its standard rooms are spacious, at just under 600 square feet, and have private furnished terraces with tranquil garden views. But for a worth-it splurge, consider one of the ocean-view or ultra-cool swim-up suites. No worries if you can’t swing it, though, since you’ll likely spend most of your time away from your room, enjoying the numerous on-site amenities.
Soak up the sunshine at one of four pools, which include a stunning infinity pool, an adults-only pool with a swim-up bar, and a kids pool, where you’ll find slides and a mini water park. Or take advantage of resort activities like water aerobics, dance classes, beachfront yoga and trivia contests. It can be a great family trip too. Children will love the supervised KidZ Club—and so will you, since it means you’ll be able to relax at the Zen Spa or do other grown-up activities, guilt-free.
The drinking and dining here will impress too. Choose from seven restaurants (including a modern steakhouse, a haute French eatery and an Italian restaurant overlooking the beach), plus seven bars and lounges. Then, take in some live entertainment, which runs the gamut from magic shows to tropical dance performances and live music courtesy of the resort band. Put simply, you’ll be happily occupied for your entire stay and likely never want to leave!
- Upscale and spacious accommodations
- Unlimited drinking and dining at more than 12 venues
- Ample on-site activities (including some great kid-centric programming) and live entertainment
- Spa services not included
- While the stretch of sand here is beautiful and great for lounging and playing on, the beach is not swimmable
Best adults-only all-inclusive
Marquis Los Cabos
Our pick for the best adults-only all-inclusive resort in Cabo, this one-of-a-kind oasis boasts dreamy all-suite accommodations—all with picture-perfect sea views, jetted tubs and private terraces, and some with private plunge pools and rooftop sundecks. You can spend your days at Marquis Los Cabos swimming in one of the sparkling infinity pools, playing tennis, learning how to salsa or enjoying tequila tastings. You can also relax in the spa for top-notch treatments and an incredible hydrotherapy circuit, which is comprised of six hot tubs, a cold pool and a steam room.
When hunger calls, head to one of the bars or eateries to refuel. Four out of the resort’s five restaurants are included, as are a handful of bars and a coffee shop. However, the signature restaurant, Canto del Mar, is worth the splurge for its decadent seven-course food-and-wine-pairing menu. And while you may be tempted to head to bed after your meal, it’s worth checking out the evening entertainment options, which include theme nights (think: circus and cabarets) and cool performances like fire shows.
One thing to keep in mind: This Cabo all-inclusive resort offers direct access to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, but swimming here is not advised. Luckily, Tequila Cove Beach is an easy (and scenic!) five-minute walk away.
- Tranquil ambience ideal for those seeking a kid-free getaway
- All-suite accommodations with stunning water views, spacious soaking tubs and furnished terraces
- Free activities and entertainment offerings, including cooking lessons, tequila tastings, tennis, salsa-dancing lessons, theme nights and performances
- Some activities cost extra, as does one of the restaurants
- No swimmable beach on-site (though there is one just five minutes away)
Best for foodies
Grand Velas Los Cabos
A foodie’s dream, the Grand Velas Los Cabos boasts a total of seven gourmet restaurants on-site. The most famous of the bunch is Cocina de Autor. Helmed by Michelin-starred chef Sidney Schutte, it offers a 10-course tasting menu, which changes seasonally and features local ingredients. Other noteworthy options include Tomahawk steaks and seafood at Velas 10, ceviche at Cabrilla and fresh pasta at Lucca, which just so happens to have the region’s largest wine selection—2,500 bottles!
Beyond the food, there’s a lot to keep you busy at this luxury hotel. Soak up gorgeous ocean views from the multi-tiered infinity pool, stroll along a prime stretch of golden sand, hit up the 35,000-square-foot spa to book unique treatments like tequila massages (yes, really!) and partake in complimentary activities that include everything from aqua beer pong to yoga to art workshops. (Just be aware that some activities, such as cooking classes, mixology lessons and mezcal tastings, cost extra.)
Families of all ages will also appreciate the dedicated activities that will keep their kids busy. First, there’s the kids club, for ages 4 to 12, which has activities like piñata making, board games and a playground. And the teens club lets kids 13 to 18 sip non-alcoholic drinks at the “bar,” play a game of ping-pong or sing their favorite tunes at karaoke.
Last but certainly not least are the all-suite accommodations, which are just as spectacular as the aforementioned amenities. Each is seriously roomy—the “smallest” is 1,981 square feet!—and they have bonus features like ocean views, private terraces and Jacuzzis. Some boast private plunge pools as well.
- Seven gourmet restaurants, including the critically acclaimed Cocina de Autor
- More than 1,000 square feet in each suite, plus postcard-worthy water views from the private terraces
- Idyllic beachfront location
- Some restaurants don’t allow kids
- Non-swimmable beach
- With nightly rates more than $1,000 per night, it’s definitely a splurge
Best for families
Garza Blanca Resort & Spa Los Cabos
With its sumptuous suites, eight heated pools, a state-of-the-art spa, and six drinking and dining options, it’s no surprise that many consider Garza Blanca to be among the best Cabo all-inclusive resorts for families. It offers a great deal too: Up to two kids ages 12 and under stay and eat for free when you book an all-inclusive stay.
At the complimentary kids club, little ones can take their pick of activities, from dancing and watching movies at the kids theater to hunting for treasures on the beach. Meanwhile, parents will love the tranquil Spa Imagine, with its restorative hydrotherapy circuit and incredible services such as peppermint foot treatments, seaweed body wraps and lavender and rosemary manicures. Post-treatment, head back to your sun-drenched suite to soak in the tub or admire the ocean views from your private balcony.
Traveling with picky eaters in tow? Garza Blanca makes mealtime a breeze with four signature restaurants (which serve up everything from steak to sushi) in a stylish space. There’s also a beachfront food truck dishing out ceviche, sashimi and raw oysters paired with refreshing cocktails, plus a poolside snack bar, where you’ll find comfort classics like chicken fingers, burgers and tacos.
Another budget-friendly perk: Families that book a One Bedroom Suite category or higher and stay for a minimum of three nights can enjoy the resort’s Family Program for no extra cost. Not only do kids stay and eat free, but families will also enjoy added bonuses including take-home amenities like toys and games.
- Up to two kids (12 and under) stay and eat free, regardless of which suite category you book

Best for wellness
Le Blanc Spa Resort Los Cabos
Indulge in some serious R&R at this unique wellness retreat. The holistic spa offers services like pitaya body wraps, hot-stone massages and citrus facials, and unlike most other properties, the hydrotherapy circuit here is free for all guests. Outside of the spa, guests can make their way to one of the infinity pools, which feature panoramic ocean vistas that enhance the relaxing vibe. Alternatively, you can opt for wellness-centric activities like paddleboard yoga, aqua spinning and Pilates.
Every one of the chic suites at Le Blanc offers at least partial sea views, along with deep soaking tubs, rainfall showers, furnished balconies and welcome bottles of wine and tequila. Extra-special touches, including nightly petit fours, mini-bars restocked daily and butlers—yes butlers!—who are on hand to cater to your every want and need (from packing and unpacking to drawing baths), all come standard too. The eight restaurants and three bars are equally impressive, with options ranging from French fare to Asian fusion to Lebanese staples.
To further enhance your stay, look into the Blanc Wellness Package. It includes perks like a $75 nightly spa credit per room, healthful mini-bar selections, en-suite ozone air purifiers and sunrise alarm clocks.
- Free hydrotherapy circuit and other wellness-centric activities, especially fitness-focused ones like yoga and Pilates
- Ultra-luxe suites complete with butler service
- Eight on-site restaurants that offer a wide variety of cuisines
- Non-swimming beach
- The property prioritizes relaxation and wellness, so those who expect an array of activities and nightly entertainment may be bored here
Best for budget-conscious travelers
El Encanto Resort at Hacienda Encantada
No, going to Cabo doesn’t have to cost a small fortune. And that’s why anyone looking for an inexpensive all-inclusive resort for their next family vacation will fall in love with El Encanto. Guests who book the all-inclusive plan are privy to unlimited food and drinks across eight restaurants and bars (including a tequila and taco bar). Or spring for the Dine Out Privilege Plan, which offers all-inclusive dining at six additional restaurants in downtown Cabo.
Beyond the mouthwatering cuisine, amenities include three pools and a hot tub; a beachfront spa (splurge on a chocolate body wrap and thank us later!); tennis, basketball and pickleball courts; a golden-sand beach; and shuttle service to and from downtown. Oh, and did we mention the on-site tequila museum?
Also, while the property is budget-friendly, don’t expect dinky lodging options. Instead, prepare to be pleasantly surprised by the suites and studios, which feature traditional Mexican design elements (think: vibrant ceramic tiles, wrought-iron balconies, hand-carved woods, native artwork, natural stonework and pottery accents). Depending on which room category you choose, amenities can include private plunge pools and kitchenettes.
- All-inclusive rates from just over $315 per night
- Value-packed amenities, including free shuttle service and off-site dining (in addition to the on-site bars and restaurants)
- Accommodations feature traditional Mexican design elements, such as hand-carved woods and natural stonework
- No kids club
- While the beach is beautiful, it’s rocky and not well-suited for swimming
Casa Dorada Resort & Spa
Casa Dorada Resort & Spa is one of the few Cabo all-inclusive resorts located on a swimmable beach. In fact, Medano Beach, where the property is situated, is the most popular swimmable beach in Cabo San Lucas. While we wouldn’t blame you if you spent the entire day wading in the calm, crystal-clear waters, you won’t want to sleep on the resort’s two sparkling swimming pools (one of which has a swim-up bar so you can sip while you soak). The resort’s private beach club, where you can lounge on the sand in style, is easily its best amenity. Guests can also try their hand at pickleball, yoga or even bingo.
We also love Casa Dorada for its spacious suites, which range in size from 665 to 2,614 square feet. Each is elegantly appointed with desert-inspired color tones and fabrics, plus private terraces, kitchenettes and bathtubs. Other resort highlights include five restaurants, a bar and a deli/coffee shop, along with the signature Saltwater Spa, which has an extensive menu of restorative and ocean-inspired treatments such as sea-moss facials and fish pedicures.
- Ideal location along Cabo’s most popular swimming beach
- Stylish private beach club area
- Suites with kitchenettes, tubs and oversized terraces
- Few activities, and some, such as yoga and sound healing, cost extra
- Not all rooms have water views
Best for golfers
Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Golf & Spa Resort
Golfers, this one’s for you! As one of the best all-inclusive resorts in Mexico for golfing, guests here have access to the acclaimed Quivira Golf Club. It boasts a Jack Nicklaus-designed course complete with postcard-worthy scenery like granite cliffs, towering dunes, desert foothills and incredible views of the Pacific. After your game, head to the thatched-roof clubhouse, which has plenty of outdoor seating, a bar and a steakhouse.
Back at the main resort area of Pueblo Bonito, golfers can fill their schedule with activities ranging from beach yoga to dance lessons to tequila tastings. Or if you need a little downtime, spend the rest of the day relaxing at the spa or hanging out by one of the oceanfront swimming pools or beach lounge area. And while the golfing here is exceptional, it’s not the only sport you can partake in: Pickleball and tennis are also available.
Post-game, refuel at one of four restaurants, or head to one of the four bars for a drink. It’s also worth mentioning that Pueblo Bonito guests have access to an additional 23 restaurants and 12 bars at sister properties Sunset Beach, Los Cabos and Rosé, for which free shuttle service is available.
Rooms and suites here have teak-furnished patios, dark wood furnishings and pretty pops of burnt orange. Those looking to take their stay to the next level should book a room in the Towers at Pacifica, a hotel-within-a-hotel comprised of 47 serene suites (adults only), which come complete with butler service and access to an exclusive oceanfront VIP lounge.
- Incredible Pete Dye–designed golf course, known as one of the best in North America
- Access to more than 30 restaurants and 15 bars across this property and sister resorts (for which shuttle service is provided)

- While there is a stylish beach lounge, swimming is not permitted
Best for romance
Breathless Cabo San Lucas Resort & Spa
Known for its buzzy ambience that attracts countless couples, this adults-only all-inclusive is perched on the aforementioned Medano Beach, which is great for swimming. Each of the 169 sleek suites has furnished terraces or balconies, where you can cozy up with your better half with a glass of bubbly in hand. Otherwise, head straight to one of the stylish common areas, which include chic bars, lounges and restaurants (there are 12 total, including a swanky rooftop lounge) and two infinity pools. The property keeps the good vibes going all day (and night!) long with DJ pool parties and theme parties, plus lots of live music performances. As a bonus, you’ll find an abundance of free activities like non-motorized water sports, yoga, volleyball, hiking, culinary classes and tequila tastings.
Should you and your partner need a break from all the fun during your romantic getaway, visit the spa to indulge in some truly unique and oh-so-sweet services like chocolate wraps and chocolate-mint exfoliating body treatments. Couples looking to make their trip even more memorable can splurge on a private dinner for two on the beach.

- The party-centric atmosphere may be a turn-off for couples seeking seclusion
Best boutique all-inclusive
Zoëtry Casa del Mar
With just 57 rooms and suites, Zoëtry Casa del Mar Los Cabos offers a distinctly intimate and exclusive vibe, thanks to its small size. The hacienda-style architecture and gorgeous grounds—which include landscaped gardens, tranquil fountains, red-tile roofs, romantic arches and, of course, breathtaking sea views—are an added bonus. Modern rooms and suites are equipped with private terraces, while suites and junior suites have ocean views, plus extra-luxe amenities that might include outdoor hot tubs, soaking tubs, separate living areas and plunge pools.
No private pool? No problem! Guests can choose from four different pools, one of which has a swim-up bar. There are also two on-site restaurants (El Arroyo, which serves Mexican fare, and the oceanfront, seafood-forward Saltwater) and two bars (one swim-up and one in the lobby). In addition to the beach and the pool, guests can visit the spa or partake in free activities like yoga; dance, painting, reflexology and cooking classes; and wine, mezcal and tequila tastings. Don’t miss the daily afternoon tea service either.
