Our stay was amazing. We had the best service the entire trip. By the end of our stay our servers memorized our orders and really made this trip something to remember. Eduardo, Diego, Daniel, Fernando & many more. JW Marriott was a beautiful resort, great food, drinks, and pools. Only lacked entertainment. Went to downtown San Jose DEL Cabo for NFL football Sunday - specifically to Baja Brewery and Shooters Sports Bar. Highly recommend!

Hotel's Favorite
I have yet to be disappointed in a JW Marriott property, but I have only used them on business trips and for conferences, never for a vacation. I took a chance on the property in Los Cabos, Mexico, and my wife and I were not disappointed! Before arrival, I exchanged several emails with the staff, including the concierge. I inquired about special occasion celebrations, considering it was our anniversary, and the hotel was efficient and helpful in coordinating things such as a private dinner on the beach. I was offered a higher rate to stay at the Griffin club, which is an exclusive side of the property, complete with its own pool, meal service, and other perks, such as daily use of the spa. However, there were not any oceanfront rooms available with this option, so I elected to pass. This was a good decision for us, as the extra cost would not have been worth it, however it might be more valuable to someone else, as we spoke to a few people who did enjoy the benefits. Expect about 35 minutes travel time from the Cabo San Jose airport. Keep this in mind when booking any air travel since the Cabo San Lucas airport is quite a bit further and would not be a convenient option for the San Jose side of the Cabos. The Marriott can arrange for transportation for you remotely, which requires a form to be completed and returned. The price apparently varies – we booked a non-private round trip for $80, however another couple we spoke to using the same service paid $200. Uber is available in this part of Mexico and is dirt cheap – only $6 to go from the JW to downtown San Jose, and only about $27 to go all the way to downtown Cabo San Lucas. I assume you could get it at the airport too. The property itself is beautiful. Set right on the beach behind a large dune, the setting is pristine. It’s on a sparsely populated stretch of the Sea of Cortez coast, east of San Jose. There are a couple of other hotels in this area, and some vacation homes on a golf course, but not much activity, especially compared to Cabo San Lucas. If you want quiet and peacefulness, you come to this part of the Cabos. If you want tons of action, parties, shopping, nightlife, etc. – you stay in Cabo San Lucas. Divided among roughly 5 buildings, the JW is huge and there is ample opportunity to walk around the resort and down on the beach. There are several pools, one being right in front of Building A (where we stayed), which has ocean views directly facing you. The pool in front of A is saltwater, and it’s quite refreshing. All other pools are fresh/chlorine, and at this time of year, there was plenty of seating available. The pools are showing some signs of wear, as tiles are coming off and one entire pool was closed for maintenance during our stay, but they are a beautiful blue color and quite relaxing. Several spots around the property are designed for seating/hanging out, with a few gas outdoor fireplaces on the top level, and other quaint “secret spots” as they are labeled. Everything is designed well, and I never thought I was lost or confused by anything. I suggest spending some time walking the beach, and heed the staff’s warning about the water being dangerous. I have felt few rip currents as strong as this one, and the shorebreak is fierce. Even a good swimmer would be highly vulnerable to a problem, so enjoy the beach, but stick to knee-depth water at most. Rooms are luxurious and very nice, as you might expect with JW Marriott. We had a king bed and a huge desk space, along with a massive bathroom, featuring a separate tub and shower, plus a separate toilet, all in their own spaces. The bed was comfortable, and a ceiling fan is overhead, adjustable from low up to helicopter speed. The AC worked impeccably in the room, and the maid service was excellent, with a few minor oversights, such as a missing bathmat one day, and missing towels another, but no big deal. The JW even provided a nightly turndown service, which was welcomed and generous. My only problem with these rooms was the lack of places to hang wet swimwear. This was not considered in the room design and features and would be useful at a resort like this. Amenities are plentiful at the JW Los Cabos. I’ve already mentioned the pools, but there are a few restaurants, a fantastic spa, and a good fitness center, especially by hotel standards. You can rent cars from Enterprise on-property if you want, but Uber seems to be a better option for vehicle transport – more cost-effective and much more convenient. The concierge can also set you up with quite a few excursions and activities if you wish. I booked everything we did extracurricular on my own, but the option is there for you. The main restaurant, Ua, has a wonderful breakfast buffet. It is quite expensive, and anything below Marriott Titanium will have to pay a fee. We were charged $39/pp each morning, but I was fine with it considering I booked the entire stay using points. This restaurant also features a Mexican dinner buffet only on select nights, and it is not to be missed. It was wonderful, and cheaper than the breakfast buffet! We never ate lunch because of the massive breakfast, and also never visited the Artisan restaurant for dinner. Ua is just OK outside of breakfast and Mexican buffet dinner, so keep other options in mind that are nearby and a short Uber ride away. As for the fitness center, it has a large room of machines and treadmills, an inappropriately smaller free weight area (although it does have a barbell, a Smith machine, and dumbbells up to 22kg. The free weight area should be larger, but right next to it is an open group fitness room that could give up some square footage to make the free weight area larger, which makes more sense given the use of the respective areas. During my stay the trainer was constantly apologetic for the lack of AC. It was brutally hot with no air movement in the fitness area each morning, probably 80-85 degrees, and I soaked my clothes. Apparently, the system was down for several days, but I don’t expect that to be normal. Overall, the gym is great for a hotel and was suitable for me to quench my fitness addictions early each morning. Of all the amenities at the JW, the one not to be missed has to be the spa. It is expensive for services, but you can access the entire area with your paid service, such as massage, hairstyling, etc. We had a couples massage that was great, and then spent 3 hours in the spa’s pools, steam room, and hot tub. It’s a fantastic setup, with hydrotherapy and lounge chairs, plus light snacks and drinks. I truly was shocked that even with complimentary access for Griffin club guests that we saw almost no one in there during those 3 hours. This JW Marriott has that higher-end Mexican hospitality. Service is excellent. Bellmen remember who you are, restaurant staff (especially Samuel) go above and beyond to serve you, addressing you by name each day. Any attempt to speak to the staff in Spanish, and just being overall warm and courteous, is much appreciated by them. They do such a great job to make you feel like you are being pampered and surrounded by luxury. The only area of the hotel that is missing this level of service is the front desk, unfortunately. They seem bothered or annoyed if you want to take the time to ask for any adjustments, and it feels like a car salesperson’s desk when you sit down and talk about rates, costs, etc. As impressive as the rest of the hotel staff is, the front desk is not. Perhaps we just got unlucky, but a thumbs down for them. Overall, this is a great property. Beautiful grounds, huge, refreshing pools, an entire area devoted to children’s play (although I recommend coming here without kids), a good fitness center, convenient beach access, great buffet food and service, and large, comfortable rooms make the JW Marriott Los Cabos an excellent vacation choice. I hope they consider removing their mask policy for staff soon, as it would be nice to see the faces of the great people that served us, and COVID is over, time to move on. In any case, we will definitely consider a return to this area as we had a blast in Los Cabos, and the JW was a big part of that.

The staff at this resort is amazing! They take care of you during the entire duration of your stay. Bryan at the Niparaya bar was incredible and went above and beyond every night. Fernando & Gustavo at the Ka Bar we’re also great and took care of us daily at the pool. The spa was also phenomenal!

This hotel does not honor Marriot Bonvoy Elite Member. The hotel may look nice due to the architectural design of it but that was the only thing that was nice. I informed the guest service to request a "Do not disturb" sign but the sign was never delivered to my room. Housekeeping keeps knocking on my room door at least 2 or 3 times a day even though I have informed them not to have housekeeping service. When I went out to get some food, I found out that the housekeeper went inside my room even though I have advised them many times that I declined housekeeping service. The manager contacted me to remedy the situation after I checked out. I wished that this was resolved during my stay instead of reaching out to me after I left the hotel. Overall, it is a nice hotel, however, do not expect that the service of 5 star hotel will be the same as the 5 star hotel in other countries.

Jorge made our buffet experience complete. His service, attention and his smile were outstanding. The variety of options on the buffet is amazing. A must try is the eggplant bacon and the Chile salmon. All the sweet options are incredible too. Thank you Jorge! We appreciate you!

Jorge was great! Super friendly service that brought a smile to our morning. Recommended good dishes to try. View was great with a gentle breeze. Fresh tortilla was delicious. Loved hearing waves clashing in the near distant.

I cannot speak highly enough about this resort. The people, the accommodations, the natural beauty, all top tier. Some stand out people were Jorge, Daniella, and Ricardo at the restaurant Ua, and Perla (my housekeeper). All went above and beyond before I had to ask for anything— they all truly anticipated my needs before I even had them. The service alone is reason to book my next trip back with friends. One concern I had was coming during rain season, buts it’s only rained for about 30 minutes in the evening every day I’ve been here - very manageable. Can’t wait to come back.
