Los Cabos Resort Culinary Queen
Beach and exceptional cuisine under one roof is sitting pretty pn Baja Mexico's coast. Marquis Los Cabos Resort beachfront resort has recently been awarded three prestigious accolades including the sought-after American Academy of Hospitality Services’ International Five Star Diamond Award for the resort’s signature Canto del Mar restaurant, the Distinctive H award for high standards in food management and the certification of the resort’s Food and Beverage Director as a Master Sommelier.

Canto del Mar,the resort’s 20-seat fine-dining restaurant, recently was awarded the International Five Star Diamond Award by the American Academy of Hospitality Services for the sixth consecutive year. Winners of this top-level award are selected following a rigorous process in all aspects of food and beverage, including service and quality. Canto del Mar serves only the freshest ingredients of the day, and no printed menus are provided at the restaurant, as the menu changes at least once a week.

The Distinctive H award was presented to Ella Messerli, General Manager, for high standards in food management for the sixth consecutive year. Distinctive H is Mexico’s prestigious food management program, which seeks to elevate food quality and security standards in the country. The high standards of the Distinctive H program refer to the purchase and reception of food, storage, defrosting, cooking, preservation and service. All restaurants on the property including Dos Mares, Vista Ballenas, Canto del Mar and Room Service exceeded the program’s high standards, guaranteeing guests that the food quality and kitchen hygiene matches or exceeds any standard of the United States.

Last but certainly not least, Marquis Los Cabos congratulated their own Food & Beverage Director, Pablo Andres Perrin, on his Master Sommelier certification from The Court of Master Sommeliers. There are only 170 Master Sommeliers in the entire world, and this is the ultimate accreditation for a proven mastery of the art, science, and history of all types of wine. Perrin lends his expertise in Canto del Mar, where he regularly provides guests with food and wine pairings.

Featured in National Geographic Traveler’s “Hotels with a Heart,” the Marquis Los Cabos donates five percent of the hotel’s annual revenue for the staff’s education and healthcare in its Marquis University. Since 2003, the resort has helped on average 20 employees a year obtain primary schooling and bachelor degrees.
