Very good value for the money. The location is perfect for those who want to be close to the marina and town. I personally prefer staying on the (non-party, non-vendor) Pacific Ocean rather than the Meadano Beach. Although you can't swim in the ocean, there are many very nice pools at the hotel. The long, wide Pacific ocean beach is... More

Just returned from Cabo last night where we spent 7 nights at this lovely place. Got off to a rocky start when our first room had not too much of a view so we were changed to a better view room but it had no hot water!! The maintenance staff spent hours our first evening trying to correct the problem... More

Playa grande is a bit older than the newly built Grand Solmar but it is also less expensive. Our room was cleaned beautifully every day and the pool wait staff was attentive when you desired it and were non-existent when you desired privacy. The massages on the beach from the Playa Grande Spa staff were amazing and I highly recommend... More

Disarray was the name of the game at Playa Grande. I spent the majority of my vacation fixing their mistakes and looking for someone to help me. There was very little signage at the resort which was frustrating because it is so big. After receiving my LL confirmation I called Playa Grande (PG) to confirm my accommodations and they said...

amazing property and the BEST kid's club ever! Make sure that Viridiana is working because your kids are going to have the time of their lives on those days when you want them to stay out of the sun :) Also, Julio Cesar is a wonderful food server by the pool. Great property and really nice people.

My family and I stayed for a week, our first trip to cabo. We found the staff to be very friendly but confused at times. When asking questions about shows and vouchers, no one knew what was going on.

This strikingly beautiful property might be a good choice for someone who owns a time share there or otherwise qualifies as a "member," but it should be a non-starter for anyone not fitting into one of these two categories. Why? Because (1) almost everything costs extra: use the fitness facility, it will cost you; want internet, you have to pay;... More

Love this resort. We were just there in January 2013. Very clean, friendly staff, good food at the restaurants, it's quiet, and walking distance to many bars and restaurants not only on the beach but on the main strip and marina.
