We went to Playa Grande for our honeymoon and had a magnificent time! We paid a small upgrade fee and were on the ocean where we could watch the whales migrate from our balcony! We took advantage of many of the activities offered at Playa Grande including the morning stretching class, arts and crafts classes, and water aerobics. We also... More

I cannot praise Playa Grande enough!! We had such a fantastic week there. We were 'upgraded' to a luxury suite up at the Ridge, which was so beautiful. Our balcony overlooked the marina, which was a plus!! Although the Ridge is a bit further out from the main hotel and pool area, we did stay up at the Ridge pool... More

Stayed with 4 old friends celebrating our big birthday together. Stayed at the Playa Grande (friends timeshare). Could not ask for more. The hotel was beautiful. Stayed on the Ridge with the most beautiful view of the Marina. Definitely preferred that view to the ocean view as the beauty of the mountains, the marina activity, and the water is just... More

We are owners at the Playa Grande and while it is a beautiful resort, we had the absolute worst room available on our recent visit from April 11-18, 2015. They were doing construction on the Pool Bar area and it started from around 8am at night and went on until about 7pm at night. There was no restful enjoyment of... More

The resort is beautifully built and beautifully maintained. Everyone we encountered there was helpful and charming. We had room 2152 in building "P" near the beach. It is a lovely one bedroom with 2 bathrooms, almost full kitchen (no dishwasher or oven), eating area, and 2 balconies. The adult pool is great, but you can still hear noise from the... More

The resort is beautiful, the pools are fun, the rooms are great and the beds are comfortable. Rose was very sweet and is great with kids. Luis, one of the bellmen was very helpful. It's a great location and easy to walk to the pier or into town from.

Playa Grande is suitable for couples and families. Excellent service, very reasonable prices, food is excellent and it is close to downtown Cabo which is a short walk away! Three large pools accommodate many more guests than are typically at the resort. One of the pools is designated as an adult pool. There are many activities on the premises in... More
