10 Best Resorts in Cabo San Lucas for Adults that Redefine All-Inclusive

10 Best Resorts in Cabo San Lucas for Adults that Redefine All-Inclusive

Share with your friends!

Cabo San Lucas has 10 adult-only all inclusive resorts that promise luxury, relaxation and the ultimate beach vacation.

Each of these luxury hotels are highly-rated, so it can be hard to choose between them all.

However, they each have some standout features that will apply to different types of travelers:

  • some are luxury;
  • some more budget focused;
  • some appeal to people who want to party;
  • some are more well-known for gourmet food options and top-shelf drinks; and
  • some are ultra quiet and perfect for a week of rest and relaxation. 

This article breaks down all the different features and amenities of the highest-rated resorts in Cabo San Lucas for adults so that you can choose the best one based on your vacation preference. 

*Note: these are the best adults-only all-inclusive resorts in Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo only! This list does not include family-friendly resorts that have an adult only pool or section.

Paradisus Los Cabos – Cabo’s Newest Adults-Only Resort

Paradisus Los Cabos officially becomes an adult-only all inclusive resort effective January 2024.

This is a 5 star hotel that offers affordable luxury and is the best adults only all inclusive resort in Cabo San Lucas if you want to relax and unwind. 

It’s very quiet and chill here, and I love that this is a smaller resort compared to others on this list.  


There are 4 pools, and many rooms have swim out pools.

This all inclusive resort has 7 restaurants to choose from. Only the breakfast is a buffet, so lunch and dinner are available at sit-down restaurants. 

There’s rooftop yoga in the mornings! 

The beach directly in front of the resort is usually swimmable.

But if it’s looking a little rough, just walk to the beach next door in front of the Hilton, which is calm and swimmable.

I love that there are two quiet beaches directly in front of Paradisus!


It’s located halfway between Cabo San Lucas & San José del Cabo, so it’s perfect if you want to visit both areas (which I highly recommend).

CSL is great for all the fun bars around the marina, excursions and exploring downtown.

San José del Cabo is a must-visit for the Thursday night art walk!

Other Things I Like About This Resort

Swim up rooms!

They have a baby turtle hatching program here! If you’re visiting between June and December, you may get to participate in helping release baby sea turtles on the beach!

Who This Resort is For: 

  • Travelers who want to relax.
  • Great if you prefer a smaller resort.
  • People who go to bed early!
  • If you want incredible views of the ocean.
  • If you plan on just sticking to the resort (about a 30 minute drive from Cabo San Lucas).

Riu Palace Baja California – Best Budget Choice & Top Choice for Young Adults

The Riu Palace Baja California is the best all-inclusive resort in Cabo for young adults and it’s also the lowest priced.

While this is one of the more affordable options, it still provides an upscale feel that you would expect from an adult-only all-inclusive, all in a lively atmosphere. 

It’s also a newer resort compared to the other Riu properties, so everything has a nice modern and contemporary feel.

If you’re more familiar with cruises, this resort can be best described as the Carnival cruise line of all-inclusive resorts. 


Beachfront location with a swimmable beach.

Themed dining options and nightly entertainment.

On-site water sports and activities.

4 Pools (2 pools have swim-up bars) and jacuzzies/hot tubs. 

Free use of the Waterslides next door! 


It’s located in a lively spot along Medano Beach, and not far from downtown Cabo San Lucas. 

You could walk there along the beach in 15 minutes, or take a quick 5 minute taxi ride into town. 

Other Things I Like About This Resort

Staying here allows you to use the amenities at all the other RIU properties, but those guests can’t come to this hotel. 

This resort checks all the boxes – you can enjoy a more luxurious stay at this resort, but if you feel the need to party like you’re on spring break, you can head to the Riu Sante Fe and take part in all the wild foam pool parties. 

Who This Resort is For: 

  • Travelers who have a budget to stick to.
  • Perfect for friends trips.
  • Travelers who want the option to go party next door, and then come back to a quieter hotel.

Breathless Cabo San Lucas Resort and Spa – Best Location

Breathless is one of my top choices if you’re visiting Cabo San Lucas for the first time, or want a lively, active resort.

It definitely has a party vibe with DJ pool parties and live music in the evenings.

If you want a Lively Adults-Only scene 24/7, Breathless is a great choice. 

I also like Breathless because it’s a smaller and compact resort compared to your typical large resort.

This makes it easy to navigate and get around and not as overwhelming as some other, large resorts. 


2 pools to choose from. There’s a Party pool that overlooks the beach and a quiet pool that overlooks the Marina. 

No swim up bar, but bartenders are very good at taking drink orders and bringing them to you. 

I think this is a good thing, pools with swim up bars are usually less sanitary.

(we’ve all seen people who stay in the pool for 5 hours without getting out to use the bathroom…).

You can upgrade to Exhale club for top shelf liquor and access to a private lounge. If money is no option, go for it, otherwise not really worth it.  

They do entertainment really well here, so you’ll always have something to do. 


If you want to experience all that Cabo San Lucas has to offer, Breathless’ location is probably its best feature.

You overlook the beginning of Medano beach, which is great for swimming and is host to all the fun beach bars, like Mango Deck and the Office.

You also overlook the Marina, so if you want to do any excursions like whale watching, snorkeling around the Cabo arch, or booze cruises, you’re literally steps away from all the departure points.

And if you want to check out nightclubs, local restaurants, shopping or walking taco tours, you’re within a few minutes walking distance.

Other Things I Love About This Resort

I love the people watching and boat watching from the pool that overlooks the Marina! 

You won’t have to wear a wristband staying at Breathless! 

They allow topless sunbathing at the pool. 

Who This Resort is For: 

  • Young adults – the age range here is between 25 – 45
  • Best for 2-4 night getaways
  • Travelers who want to be close to all the action. 
  • Bachelorette and bachelor parties!
  • People who want to party!

Marquis Los Cabos – Choice for Laid Back Relaxation

Marquis Los Cabos gives off Greek island vibes and is the perfect choice for a relaxing vacation in Cabo. 

There’s no timeshare setup here, so you won’t be bombarded with sales pitches.

Honestly, this is a really nice perk, because there aren’t many hotels like this in Cabo. 


2 out of 3 infinity pools are heated

  • The beach is not swimmable, but the views are phenomenal
  • you can walk along the beach for 10-15 minutes towards the Hilton hotel’s beach where it’s always swimmable. 
  • The views are the most impressive here at this resort

There’s nightly entertainment, with a few theme nights throughout the week, but it’s not an outrageous party vibe. 


Marquis is located along the tourist corridor of Los Cabos, which means it’s about halfway between Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo (albeit a little closer to the latter).

The location is was a lot of people love about this resort, it’s only 15 – 20 minutes in either direction to get to either city. 

It’s also situated in a desirable location along the tourist corridor for some of the most amazing views of the beach and the turquoise waters of the Sea of Cortez. 

Other Things I Like About This Resort

Each room has a little room-service door. So your room service and morning pastries are delivered through this little window, so you don’t have to answer your door to receive room service! 

There are brand new pickleball ball courts and daily beach volleyball!

Tip: the Hibiscus Margarita is the best drink at the resort!

Who This Resort is For: 

  • Travelers who seek 5-star service

Secrets Puerto Los Cabos Golf & Spa Resort – Best Choice for Ultimate Seclusion

Secrets is the perfect choice for a low-key getaway in Cabo, especially if you head to bed early. 

While there’s enough daytime activities without the heart-pounding poolside music, there’s not a whole lot for evening entertainment, which means it is very quiet at night.


Has swim out rooms!

Swim up pool bar

Jacuzzi that overlooks the golf course

24-hour room service

Bali beds to lounge by the pool

9-hole golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus is included in your stay

  • Travelers who prefer to relax at a resort that has enough amenities that they don’t need to leave.
