Just spent a week at the beautiful Playa Grande. Pros: large one bedroom units with separate bedroom, full kitchen, living/dining area and 2 full bathrooms. Staff is exceptional and everyone is very attentive. The resort is walking distance to most of the restaurants in town and also very close to the marina. There are several pools and ample room to...

Even with workmen repairing hurricane damage, two weeks at Playa Grande was wonderful as in the past. The resort took a hit in the storm, but reconstruction, paint, glass, and new pool improvements made the place better than ever. The bellmen (Chuy, Daniel, Jesus, and others), front desk personnel, and other staff do everything they can to make our time... More

This was our first time in Cabo and it was wonderful! The Playa Grande resort is beautiful. The grounds and rooms are kept impeccably clean and the lobby smells amazing! It might seem like a strange detail to mention but the aroma therapy effect it has really adds to the whole experience. Another important feature is its proximity to the... More

Playa Grande is truly a spectacular resort in all aspects. Rooms, I was in a one bedroom suite, excellent amenities, very large size, and great kitchen. Bed excellent. Small sofa pull out if needed. Private large balcony as well. I was in building M on the right side of the resort looking towards the ocean. One complaint is that there... More

This is third time here (and I am not an owner) - but it was best yet. The marina area (that is easy to walk to) has much more now (Oxxo store, some smaller restaurants) on side close to Playa Grande now that are open even when the cruise ships are not in. Used Prickly Pear to deliver us some... More

The first-time visit to Cabo San Lucas and the Playa Grande was excellent. We especially enjoyed dining at The Ridge Restaurant, and the wonderful service provided by Israel, who was especially helpful and friendly, with a great personality. We plan to return, and would be very happy to do so at your expense!!!!!

First time at Playa Grande and we'll be back. The resort was well-kept and spacious. Our room was just off the top of the main stairway. We were concerned about noise, but it was no problem at all. The room was a "studio" that has a master suite plus sofa and second bathroom in the main area. Alejandro greeted us... More

at this resort about the only visible damage was the reconstruction of the Kalima restaurant. Workmen were jack hammering and removing damaged portions in order to rebuild. It was annoying, but necessary. Two of the pools at neighboring Grand Solmar were still heavily damaged and empty. While I enjoyed the activities staff - Roberto, Luis, Humberto, Rose and Itzel -...

LOVING all the Activities Staff classes. The staff, Humberto, Rose, Luis, Itzel, and Roberto are fabulous. I love the stretching class and Water Aerobics - though the staff has changed a it from last year, they NEVER disappoint. Thank you all for a wonderful two weeks! See you next year!
