We stayed at the Playa Grande in January 2013. The facilities and accommodations were pretty much exactly as advertised, with a couple of pleasant surprises (e.g. the hot tubs are huge, the units were well appointed with great daily maid service). We had stayed here this time because we wanted to be closer to CSL for the nightlife than the last time we came when we stayed on the corridor (Sheraton's Hacienda del Mar).
One thing you might want to realize when you book this is how big the Marina actually is, and the long sloping driveway (really long - 5-10 minute walk). While PG is definitely walkable to most destinations, you're definitely in for some real exercise. Walking one afternoon from Medano beach back to the hotel involved at least two refreshment pitstops. ;)
Also, and this will be more or less important to different people - the wifi is definitely spotty. We bought the week for $45, and it was ok, but lots of dropped and slow connections in the room. if you rely on fast wifi you'll want to think about what to do for plan B on certain occasions.
Overall I would say PG was "as advertised."
