I just visited Los Cabos for the first time and I was totally blown away. The area is beautiful and has so much to offer. I am already planning a trip back with the kids.
While I was there I stayed at Paradisus an all-inclusive family friendly resort in San José del Cabo just 24km from San Jose del Cabo airport. During my stay I was treated to indulgent multi-course dinners, peaceful moments around the pool, and I even manage to spend a little time at their spa. I found the resort to be quite peaceful. There was zero party vibe.
Paradisus Cabo All-inclusive Perks
As I mentioned already Paradisus is an all-inclusive family friendly resort. The all-inclusive benefits are wide ranging. You can upgrade to a Royal experience which gets you a butler and a private lounge or if you are traveling with your family, there’s an upgrade just for families with its own lounge, concierge and other perks. I am only breaking down the all-inclusive amenities that everyone receives without doing some sort of upgrade.
24 Hour Room Service
Room service is available at all times. Be sure to order wine by the glass otherwise you will be charged for the whole bottle. Just a heads up, I struggled ordering room service in English and my order was quite interesting. Tasty, but not what I ordered.
Multiple Restaurants and Bars
There are six restaurants at the resort which include a Mexican restaurant, a small buffet, Asian restaurant, a steakhouse, and more.
There’s also four bars including a rooftop bar with some fantastic views.
There’s a Kids Zone, with supervised activities and children’s games. This Mini Club is for children between the ages of 4 – 12 years old. The kid’s club is open 7 days a week at no extra cost. It features the following:
- Kids’ lounge, lunch and drinks
- Creative space
- Mini Olympics
- Face painting
- Treasure hunts
There is a program for teens, but I never discovered if there was a designated room for teens. Activities just for teens include:
- Beach Games
- PlayStation 4
- Xbox One
- Football table
- Water basketball
- Water polo
- Giant chess
- Movie nights
Included Activities for Everyone
They offer a wide range of classes including Latin dance classes, sushi classes, cigar rolling, art , wine and cheese tasting, tequila and Mezcal tasting, and mixology classes.
They also offer a range and health and wellness activities including: meditation, stretching, water exercises, power dance, beach volleyball, ping pong, and horseshoes.
Guestrooms and suites include: fully stocked mini bar, laptop size safe, 50” flat screen TV and balcony or terrace. The swim-up suites provide access to the 3 new pools, but I sadly did not have a swim up suite. My room had two beds and could sleep four people, no problem. Every room has aromatherapy.
My room had a balcony overlooking the pool. I think if I had been on a higher floor I would have been able to see the ocean.
While staying here I had the chance to visit the spa briefly. Both the steam room and sauna used eucalyptus, which is one of my favorite things. It’s nice to be able to clear your head, when you are allergy prone like me. Sadly, I did not have a chance to experience any of their treatments. But I did get to do the hydrotherapy in their outdoor pool. That’s a picture of half the hydrotherapy pool, I couldn’t get one of the whole thing because there were two dudes on the other end.
- Two cabins for couples
- Four single cabins
- Beauty salon
- Wet areas and changing rooms
- Steam bath, sauna and pool
- Relaxation area
You do not have to stay at a specific resort in Cabo to access their spa, including this one. You can book any treatment and you will get right in.
Safe Swimming Beach
You cannot visit Mexico and not spend time at the beach, it’s an unspoken requirement. Much to my surprise many of the resorts do not have a swimmable beach. If they do not, there are other options. Los Cabos boasts 19 blue flag certified beaches. Ask your concierge for a good recommendation near your resort.
With 350 days of sunshine year round, I spent a lot of time at the swimming pool. I immensely enjoyed the swim up bar and catching up with friends over drinks.

Should You Get Travel Insurance for Mexico?
Don’t forget travel insurance! I’m a fan of Travelex insurance, because of the variety of options. Protect yourself from possible injury & theft abroad. I have gotten extremely sick twice now out of the country and Noah has had seizures in other countries, so I always recommend getting some sort of coverage. Read more about why you should always carry travel insurance here.
If you are looking for a car rental I recommend getting the car at the airport. It will make things easier. This entire area is easy to drive around in. Get a Los Cabos car rental for $1 a day!
