This resort is one of the most beautiful of the many we have visited in Cabo. The setting is perfect being within walking distance to many restaurants, marina, and shopping. The view is outstanding and so is the service. We never wanted for anything and many a friend was met here. Ivan (one of the bellmen) went beyond the call... More

This is our 10th year here, and it is always a pleasant experience. Whether you are on the Ridge, or in the main area, the staff are always there to help with anything you might want. The only shortcoming this time is that the Colima restaurant is still being rebuilt, this time of solid steel, and was not open so... More

My husband and I visited for a friend's wedding in the resort. We stayed in the section where the suites had views of the marina and the entire cabo town.. It also offered the most exquisite swimming pool and jacuzzi which was reserved for the guests staying in the premium suites (I forget the exact name). The infinity pool boasts... More

Playa Grande was a great resort for our family of 4 (2 teens). The only thing that could be improved on is the check in process- wait in line to check in and if it is not 4 pm, you have to wait in line to come back again and get room keys. After check in you must sit down... More

Visited Playa Grande in March with wife and 2 daughters 16 & 18. This was our first trip to Cabo and also the first time we visited Mexico without doing an all-inclusive. We booked a room at Playa Grande based on trip advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite and it was plenty... More

This was our first trip to Mexico, and staying at the Playa Grande was the best! All the staff were very polite, helpful and treated us so well, especially Eduardo who was the first person to greet us at the resort, and Omar at the front desk. The pools and grounds are beautifully kept, there is daily fun & entertainment... More

Disclosure: we own 4 timeshares at the Playa Grande / the Ridge and also the P building on the beach. This is where we want to be. We just returned yesterday from our 13th year in Cabo, most of them at the Playa Grande. We've opted to not go to Grand Solmar because we honestly prefer the atmosphere, the openness,... More

I have stayed in 4 other Mexican resorts so I have a pretty good feel for what to typically expect from one. Playa Grande was fabulous. Rooms: we had a one-bedroom suite which was beautiful. It was nice to have the extra space, two large full bathrooms, a kitchen and two balconies with ocean views. Only issue was no oven... More

Playa Grande is a great choice for families who want to go to Mexico and feel safe and protected. You could easily spend days without leaving the property. That said, you could be anywhere in the world as it's a solid, high end resort with little feel of being in Mexico. Best feature are the 3 pools for families and... More
