The Marquis Los Cabos (877.238.9399, www.marquisloscabos.com) takes advantage of its beachfront setting on the tip of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula. The resort’s open architectural style allows you to see and hear the Sea of Cortés from almost all public spaces on the property, while floor-to-ceiling windows ensure that the water remains within view from the 209 suites and 28 casitas. A 36-foot waterfall provides a dramatic backdrop for diners at the resort’s restaurants, but morning meals at the Marquis, which opened in 2003, are best enjoyed from the comfort of your suite: Hot coffee, fresh fruit, and pastries are delivered to a hidden niche in your room each morning. When you awake, you unlatch the compartment, grab its contents, and head for your private balcony to enjoy your breakfast with an ocean view.
