The difference between San Jose Del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, as an experience is night and day. There is not the extreme nightlife and you won't feel like you are in hipster hell. There are many 5* Hotels, upscale restaurants and more quality Mexican experiences. My preference.Recommended for:

Loved the beaches here. Not much to see outside of your resort - at least for me. We've been to Cancun before as well and it seems that each downtown spot in MX has much of the same vibe. I'm any case, I enjoy being at the pool or on the beach best

Stayed at Barcelo Resort - a 5 star resort. Travel agent recommended this place. Weather was hot but with the breeze, you never feel how hot it really is. They have not had rain in two years!
Nice pool, cheezy nightly entertainment at the resort. Resort was not too busy; primarily couples and young families. Not a place to come to if you want to party and meet singles. There is a sports lounge and piano bar, but no real place to dance. There are several fine dining restaurants, not bad.
Hotel is next to the hedonistic resort Desires (formerly Temptations). The music blaring from the resort was tempting, but did not manage to 'crash' the party. Heard from the tour guide that when it was Temptations, can pay US$75 to visit as a guest for dinner and dancing. Not confirmed if this is true under the new management.
Shuttle bus to Cabo is US$16 return for day trips. Taxi costs US$34 to get into town.
Cabo San Lucas is a party town. Go to the beach and have a drink at Mango Deck (like Senor Frogs)! The actual downtown is not like PV which I find more interesting strolling down the Malecon.
Snorkel trip with Baja Adventures not too bad. Get to see Lover's Arch and then snorkel for an hour in the bay for US$79.

We stayed at San Jose del Cabo, Mexico but explored Cabo San Lucas, Mexico as well, which is 20 mins. away via Taxi. Beautiful cities. Just be careful at the airport! Guys with ID tags pretending to help you are actually there to lure you in to a timeshare set up. They'll offer you "good" deals like free dinner cruise but will take 3 hours of your time trying to convince you to buy their timeshare.
