The Hilton Los Cabos Beach and Golf Resort sits on a sparking turquoise bay in the Sea of Cortez and has its own protected beach that provides guests with safe swimming (it’s one of the only swimmable beaches in the area) and stunning views. The resort has 275 guestrooms and 66 suites, and offers a wide range of room types, dining options and family-friendly activities, including kids’ spa services and a free supervised daytime kids’ program. Although Los Cabos is primarily a beach destination, there’s plenty of local culture, cuisine and nightlife to experience up in nearby cities. The Hilton is in a great location for visiting Mexican cultural attractions; it’s a 10-minute drive from downtown San Jose del Cabo and a 20-minute drive from Cabo San Lucas.

This was our 8th stay at this beautiful resort. We can't help but keep coming back every year to celebrate another wedding anniversary, It is that good! There was some construction going on this year as the hotel is making some beautiful additions. However the noise was very limited and really hardly noticeable.
The service here is top notch. The staff here always remembers our names and our likes such that we consider them dear friends now, they really are that friendly!! Many of the staff people have been working here for over a decade which tells you what a great place it is.
I would just like to thank some of the people that always make our stay special. Paul the bellman is great. He has been working here for 17 years and is especially friendly and respectful. Cristian Rochin the front desk manager always assigns us a great room and takes care of any other needs we may have. He is the best!
The breakfast gang at El Meson is over the top. Jorge the captain treats us like family and every day sends over a plate of fruit before we even sit down. We love him!! This year we got to know Daniel and he too is very special. The breakfast buffet is probably the highlight of our day, it is that good.
Luis the food and beverage manager always makes it a point to come over and talk with us. We consider him a dear friend. We even spoke to Luis about a possible wedding for my daughter sometime in the future and he put us in touch with the person responsible for setting that up.
In closing I can't say enough good things about this hotel. We have tried a few other hotels in Los Cabos but the Hilton is our favorite. We are already making plans to return next year.
The hotel was spacious and well laid out and the rooms were very spacious and comfortable. The food was exceptional as was the service. Everyone of the staff we came in contact with had a very customer centric smile and demeanor. They couldnt do enough for you. All the amenities were first rate. We were very happy with our stay.
Families will find plenty to do at the Hilton Los Cabos, from fun in the sun at the resort's beach and pool to active water sports. The hotel is by a protected bay that offers safe swimming conditions (no rip tides) for guests. There are two pools with swim-up bars and a Jacuzzi, and a pool concierge provides guests with iPods, reading materials and cool drinks. Additional on-site recreation facilities include tennis courts, a spa, which sells kid-friendly spa services such as children's massages and ice cream manicures and pedicures, an 18-hole golf course and a fitness center. Water sports equipment is available to rent near the hotel, such as wave runners and Hobie-cats. The hotel concierge will help arrange equipment, as well as assist in booking scuba diving, snorkeling, hiking, fishing or boating excursions.
The Hilton Los Cabos offers a kids' Vacation Station for children ages 4 to 12. The Vacation Station is a supervised kids' club that runs from every day from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. and is complimentary. The club has a schedule of actives ranging from active play like jump rope and volley ball to arts and crafts. The hotel also offers on-site private babysitting services, which require 24-hour reservations. Rates start at $20 per hour.
Cabo San Lucas is an extremely popular destination for golfers; and the resort is in close proximity to five championship courses, inlcuding three designed by Jack Nicklaus.
The Hilton has an impressive selection of dining options with five on-site restaurants. El Meson serves Mexican-inspired dishes in a breathtaking setting with views of the infinity pool and the ocean beyond, and also has a morning breakfast buffet. Fenicia dishes up upscale dinners on a candlelit terrace. Diners at Fenicia feast on Mediterranean dishes like stuffed lamb and scallops. Unlike Fenicia, the Madero Bar and Grill is quite casual; order burgers, nachos, tacos more at this poolside restaurant. Or, eat sushi or sashimi for lunch or dinner at La Barca. Need some adults-only time? Sip on cocktails and munch on complimentary hors d'oeuvres (served from 7 p.m. until 8 p.m.) at La Vista. El Meson and Fenicia are the only two restaurants that offer children's menus, but chefs will create dishes to accommodate kids at most hotel restaurants.
