Poker, golf and surfing glue guys together

While girls just want to have fun, they can’t have it all! For quality male bonding, Marquis Los Cabos Beach, Golf, Spa & Casitas Resort serves up the Surf & Turf Getaway, combining three favorite male activities - poker, golf and surfing.

As a counterpart to the property’s It Girl Getaway introduced last year, the Surf & Turf version includes three surfing lessons in the Sea of Cortez, two rounds of golf at nearby Cabo del Sol Golf Course, and one poker night with dinner and open bar. The four-night quality time guy getaway is priced from $1,960 per person June 1-Dec. 18.

According to Frederique Naffrichoux, director of sales and marketing, the package was created in response to guests looking for an experience that involved new activities.

“It’s something more that just a simple vacation, but also allows them to know what Los Cabos has to offer,” she explains. “We wanted to create a unique, memorable experience with amenities that represent Cabo.”

The plan also covers accommodations in a junior suite or private pool casita with oceanfront view, daily buffet breakfast at the resort's Vista Ballenas restaurant, Marquis Los Cabos signature cocktail drink upon arrival, special cigar gift box, and ice cold beers and chips with guacamole delivered en-suite.

“The two biggest draws are poker and surfing,” notes Naffrichoux. “Surfing shows off the beautiful destination. Poker is all about fun. You have an unlimited open bar, a special dinner and you get the poker set as a gift. How much more appealing can it get?”

Unlimited gym and Jacuzzi access plus VIP airport transfers round out the inclusions. Guys can extend their stay, with each additional night priced at $490 in the junior suite and $605 in the private pool casita.

A member of the prestigious Leading Hotels of the World and Leading Spas of the World, the 237-suite Marquis Los Cabos Resort features dramatic water highlights, an extensive Latin American art collection, and a 15,000 sq. ft. holistic spa and fitness center. The beachfront property has been named as a 2006 Gold List Resort by Conde Nast Traveler.
