Only ten minutes from the airport, the Holiday Inn Resort Los Cabos All Inclusive is a first-class resort that offers the chance to relax and leave everything behind while you indulge on an all-inclusive vacation. Enjoy the picturesque backdrop of the stark Sierra de San Lazaro Mountains of the Baja Peninsula. To expand your fun in the sun, Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo are minutes away.
Experience the relaxing and luxurious accommodations, like a furnished terrace with a hammock or a private balcony. When you are ready to have some fun in the sun, the hotel's unique layout is designed to offer three very distinct ambiances to satisfy any traveler's desire: A family pool with a shallow section close to the Kids' Club, an activities pool with music and all sorts of entertainment such as water volleyball, aqua-aerobics, and Mexican bingo; and a quiet pool exclusively for adults looking for a relaxing getaway spot. At or near the resort, you'll golf, play tennis, and swim while younger guests explore the Chiqui Kids' Club.
You won't even have to get out of the pool to savor one of the creative cocktails at one of the swim-up bars, just float on over and enjoy. If you need a little more than a drink, you can choose to dine at one of the two delicious restaurants that the all-inclusive resort boasts. Also take advantage of the daily entertainment and famous Mexican Fiesta.
Please note: Our property is 100% smoking free in all the rooms, public areas, indoor areas and common areas including the pools. We will have a smoking area near the beach, for those guests that need to smoke.

Iguanas greet you at the entrance!
We got an excellent deal on this all-inclusive when our flight was cancelled and we could not leave until the next day. The drinks we ordered were frou-frou and not very strong, but other people were getting shots of higher quality stuff, so you can catch a buzz if that's what you're after. We only had food from the buffet, and it was fine. The fruit was really good, and some of the breakfast pastries were excellent. The bell staff were very good and eager to help, which was great when my husband's mobility scooter temporarily conked out. We were unable to get a reservation for the table service restaurant for dinner since we booked our room last minute. We thought about getting room service (the only charge was a gratuity), but ended up in the buffet with drink service, and that was fine. The dining staff were not super-attentive, but they all had name tags and responded when you called them by name. I hope if we had stayed longer, we might have gotten a little more attention. The pools were beautiful. I most enjoyed the family pool with the waterfall, even though we were there without kids. We went snooping around the estuary and saw the restaurant at the hotel that was destroyed by the hurricane a few years ago. While we were out snooping, we saw some darling young men practicing dances on an outdoor stage. When we were out at the pools, we saw that chairs were being set up, but there was no sign of entertainment going on that night. My husband called the front desk, and sure enough, there was an international dance and music show. It was not a big budget event, but the performers were quite talented and they had some cute audience participation activities. Late in the evening, the resort lost power. Staff moved quickly to get it restored. As others have mentioned, and our bellman warned us, there is no swimming at the beach due to riptides. I did see a few people going in the water a few resorts down, but there was still a red flag on their section of the beach, so I wouldn't risk it. There were several activities for families that looked like fun. The resort didn't have a huge party atmosphere, but it was a nice place to relax for somewhat older folks like us, and for young families.
The Best Time - 5 Stars
All I am not a fake reviewer. This resort was fantastic and the food very good. From Gonsolo the bell hop, Rocio the Party Hopper, Esthala the pool bartender and Irvin our server, we were at home. Don’t listen to all the crap the naysayers are writing. The people of Mexico are the nicest and it was truly a vacation. Also, make sure you go with Rocio the party girl. For 50.00usd, she will introduce you to the club scene for 5 hours on a guided tour and this will also make you feel comfortable about going there yourselves another evening. Thanks to you all again. See ya as soon as I have money again. 😂😂😂
Good for families, quiet, relaxing
We visited In July, it was in the low 90s during our stay at the Holiday Inn Resort . You must be ready to climb stairs unless on the main floor. Our room was clean and attractive with a balcony overlooking the beach, furnished with 2 chairs and a lounger for sunbathing. The sitting chairs needed repainted or replaced as paint flaked off onto us when we sat in them. The room has its own thermostat it cools it down, it definitely does. Don’t expect to watch tv during your stay unless you know Spanish or watch one of the two English speaking channels. (One of us was sick in bed for two days). Furniture and linens in the room were in good condition. This resort s older, approx, therefore there are some small cosmetic blemishes in the bathroom. Water pressure and heat varied in the shower, nothing new from our visits to other resorts in Mexico. We had a toilet overflow in our bathroom and had trouble initially getting housekeeping help. I spoke with a gentleman at the doors, Enrique, who listened to my problem and ensured it happened. A “plumber” came to the room with Enrique right behind him assuring us that it would be cleaned immediately (and it was.)The staff members are kept busy, but not so much that they can’t address your wants or needs. The food is plentiful but don’t go expecting it to taste like in the US. One of the favorite spots for me was the adult pools and adjoining bar. There are three additional pools where kids are welcome and have music playing or activities.
Visiting Old Friends
For the past decade we have been meeting friends at the Holiday Inn Resort for a week of relaxation while flying kites on the spacious beach. We absolutely love this resort because of the location, the staff, and the overall atmosphere which is very welcoming. The grounds are well maintained and definitely embody the desert landscape of this area. This resort had a major renovation after the hurricane a number of years ago. What we like is the fact that they kept the feeling of Mexico with the redo. The staff is very special to us as we have known many of them since our first visit. What is amazing to us is the number of staff members who have been there for years and speak highly of working there. At many properties, this is not always the case. The food is plentiful ... the breakfast buffet is very good with a wide range of choices including made to order omelets. One of the favorite spots to have lunch is at Esteros which overlooks the beach. There is also a lunch buffet which has a nice choice of entrees, salads, and desserts! Evening meals are either buffets or "order from the menu" sit downs. There are a variety of activities that occur during the day ... from the morning bicycle tour to playing bingo around the pool. The pools are well maintained and accommodate all ages. Keep in mind that this is an older property and as a result does not have much of the glitz of newer properties. Do not let this stop you from trying it ... the caring and willingness of staff to make your stay enjoyable more than make up for this. To Raul and his staff, we say thank you for taking such good care of our group!! We look forward seeing you next year.
Stay AWAY from this primitive " RESORT "
Was 2 times in Cabo, May and June, first in de Cameron thought the food there was not good but comparing it to Holiday Inn it would be first class. But the Hotel first. Its over 30 years old and it seems nothing has been changed, The walls look like in a Horse Stable, course and rough, no picture on the wall,30 year old furniture no fridge, plastic cups for water no glasses in bathroom, no hooks to hang towels, you have to go to reception to make a local call. But the FOOD is just lousy ! At the beach "Restaurant" there are 8-10 items on the menu, salad, pizza, a meat, a fish item , a fish taco comes as a tortilla with a piece of fish in it and 2 items to make your own, a soup which the waiter said comes from a box, can. Only 2 items are changed every day. The ' Carne asada ' was rubbery like a shoe sole. So while you sit there in the Palapa eat bad food you have to listen to the loud Puertorican bum bum music. In the other ' Restaurant ' inside primitive outside under the trees is Breakfast and at night self service of precooked food. NO Table service here !! Once they had a grill there and sliced 1/2 inch off of a piece of meat and warmed it on the grill. NO salt or pepper shakers, it comes in paper bags, Strawberry was the only Marmelade in a little plastic. And can you believe it ? They have NO BUTTER in this Hotel but ONLY Margarine !! Like I said this place is CHEAP with bad food, never mind it is a Holiday Inn !! Despite it is all Inclusive you will come home lighter then when you left. Unless you had eaten in town.
