Cabo San Lucas resorts is a popular vacation accommodation type in Los Cabos, Baja California Sur. Although there are many hotels in Los Cabos, staying in a resort is the smarter way, especially if you only have a weekend in Cabo.
Between San Jose del Cabo (SJC) and Cabo San Lucas (CSL), SJC has more resorts that are suitable for families but young people and/or couples on a honeymoon prefer to participate in the blaring Cabo San Lucas nightlife.
Resorts in Cabo San Lucas are complete which absolutely means that you don’t have to leave the property if you need anything. It’s like an adult’s Disneyland where everything is provided for.
Mind you, the food served in Cabo San Lucas resorts is excellent. I was quite impressed with how they maintained the quality of food. Although I must tell you there are many restaurants in Los Cabos that are worth trying.
Here are some of the resorts in Cabo San Lucas that I recommend, including pricing, location, amenities, etc. I’ve stayed in most of these places so I will try my best to give you an honest review.
Of course, if you ever push through your trip in Cabo San Lucas, I would be happy to meet you for coffee and drink – I live here! Just get in touch!

🏠 San Jose del Cabo vs Cabo San Lucas resorts
Travelers who particularly choose to travel to Cabo San Lucas (and not San Jose del Cabo) are up to one thing: they want to experience the Cabo nightlife.
Resorts in San Jose del Cabo are bigger and are way far from the center but they all have van services to take you to the popular spots. Most SJC resorts are also guaranteed all-inclusive.
However, if you choose to stay in a resort in Cabo San Lucas, you will be closer to the nightlife scene and everything will be within walking distance.
I would say that Cabo San Lucas is more for young travelers and San Jose del Cabo is for families traveling with kids. I do have a bias with CSL since I live here.
Still, I feel like both sub-cities are appealing to any type of traveler. You just need to be clear with the purpose of your travel and/or what occasion you are celebrating.
✨ What are the best all-inclusive Cabo San Lucas resorts?
There aren’t many all inclusive Cabo San Lucas resorts but my best pick is Pueblo Bonito Resort. I live in this compound (there are private homes here) and I feel like you will get to see the real Cabo San Lucas here as opposed to staying in the touristy area.
There are many resorts in the Cabo San Lucas Marina but I need to warn you that this is where all the bars are so expect to hear loud music til late.
Please note that the prices below are based on shoulder season (May, June, and July) so it can change depending on the seasons.
