Barcelo Los Cabos Palace Deluxe

written by | Posted on August 1st, 2010

Life Spa provides a long menu of delicious massages and treatments whether in one of 16 indoor cabins or three palapas outdoors, as well as a hydro-thermal circuit available to guests for just $15. To keep the heart pumping, there’s a large fitness center as well as tennis and basketball courts.

Given its amenities, design and location, this is also a great place for romance. Barcelo Los Cabos can put together a proposal to remember with dinner by the beach, tiki torches all lit up and fireworks once the question has been popped (and the bride has presumably acquiesced). “Best of all,” says Vanegas, “while the couple celebrates at the beach, the hotel staff prepares the couple’s suite with flowers and candles.”

For weddings, there is a beachside gazebo and many other locations for a great reception, plus the resort offers a free wedding for eight to 10 rooms booked for a 3-night minimum. At press time, Barcelo Los Cabos was working on a “green” wedding concept to debut soon. It also offers complimentary honeymoon amenities and room upgrades when available.

If you haven’t already, it’s a good time to sign up for Barcelo’s B Partner program, which rewards agents for confirmed bookings at hotels in Mexico, Costa Rica and the Dominican Republic. For each night booked at a Barcelo Premium property, an agent receives 15 “perks”; for each night at a Barcelo hotel, they get 10 perks. They’ll thus earn free night stays for as little as 300 perks. Agents can register for this program online at barcelopartnerclub.com; the site also provides information on new hotel openings and products such as Barcelo Premium, which offers upgraded amenities.

All-inclusive rates at Barcelo Los Cabos start at $99 pp dbl until December, when they go up to $257 pp dbl. There are also early booking specials available online. Through Dec. 23, two kids 21 and under can stay (and eat) for free when traveling with two adults.
