One of the newer resorts in Los Cabos (opened November 2015), this JW Marriott is one of the best values on the peninsula (the TripValue here is +5, which is robust). It caters well to both couples and families and has a mostly relaxed, quiet vibe. Drinks are a little overpriced, on-site water sports and activities in general are somewhat lacking, and the ocean isn’t suitable for swimming because of the undertow (this is common in Los Cabos, but it has a negative effect on the Overall Beach Resort Rating); but the resort boasts an incredible ten swimming pools, a superior 21,000-square foot spa with an ancient pre-Hispanic “Temazcal” sweat lodge, tastefully designed and spacious accommodations, impressive service, on-site shopping, quality yoga classes, and one of the area’s best restaurants in Café des Artistes. Other features include a Jack Nicklaus and Greg Norman-designed golf course, a solid fitness center, a modern game room/club for kids, beautifully manicured grounds, and spectacular ocean vistas throughout the property. The Griffin Club, the 45-room boutique hotel within the resort, offers an even higher-end experience (highlights include butler service, a movie theater, and a private beach and pool).
COVID-19 antigen testing can be arranged on-site for guests returning to the United States.
