“Great family resort”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Our deluxe one bedroom room suite was very nice overlooking the marina. The resort was built on top of and around the natural rock formations in Cabo. Their government made that a requirement to get the permits to build. Conservation of nature at its best! Our suite. Had a mini kitchen which worked well for us. This resort is great for kids since one of the pools had tube slides. The resort also had a miniature golf course. Great location for using water taxis or bicycle taxis.

This resort is my home away from home. It has everything that I could ask for...waterfront views, great restaurant, friendly staff who cater to you and close to the downtown/marina area for sport fishing. Playa Grande is hard to beat.

Room Tip: Bldg 4 - front of resort has the best views

I just returned from my second visit to Playa Grande and, with the aid of the General Manager, Flora Camacho, it was the best stay I could have asked for. Flora read my initial tripadvisor review where I expressed concern about paying to use basic amenities like the gym and internet and she took action. First of all, she provided me with an incredible ocean front room on the top floor. The room was an upgrade from what I had booked, and since I am a waverider, the view I had of the beach and waves was the best I could ask for. Flora also arranged fitness center access for me and my fiancé and had someone call my room with a code for internet access. So, not only did she resolve my concerns, but she over-delivered on providing me with one of the best rooms I could ask for. During our stay, the cleaning service would come by twice a day…once in the morning to make the beds, replace the towels and toiletries and sweep up the floors. They would return in the late afternoon to draw the curtains, turn down the bed, and one day they even dropped off a plate of chocolate covered strawberries. The furnishings and grounds of the hotel are immaculate. The room has two flatscreen televisions with Spanish channels, English channels, and even an adult channel if that appeals to you. There were plenty of chairs and umbrellas around the pool and the waiters were always at the ready to take food or drink orders. The daily happy hours at the pool make enjoying a drink before riding waves a little more appealing.

Overall, the hotel is clean, extremely well maintained, designed with quality in mind, and is just a short walk into town. The beach has massive waves that would kill children or the elderly, but if you skimboard, this is the beach to do it at. If you aren’t comfortable with massive shorebreak, there are so many pools, whirlpools, jacuzzi’s and even a waterslide at the hotel to enjoy, and the ocean is still beautiful to watch from the safety of the beach. Thank you to Flora Camacho for making our vacation unforgettable. We will be back next year.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor, but I think everyone who is on this website already knows to do that.

Playa Grande has the best of both worlds. Peace and quiet on the private Pacific coast or stroll over the ridge and there is the world class, awe-inspiring marina, w/ all the shops and restaurant choices you could ask for.

Room Tip: All rooms are good!!

This was our first time to Mexico and the Playa Grande was absolutely the perfect hotel to stay at. Beautiful 5-star hotel, awesome setting with excellent surroundings. Great location with everything being easy to get to from there. The staff was very courteous and friendly. The deluxe suite has very spacious rooms which all have excellent views of the ocean, we slept with the slider open every night and enjoyed the sound of the ocean, so relaxing! We stayed at the Playa Grande for 6 nights and loved everything about it, would highly recommend it as the perfect get-away, great place to stay!

This is our favorite resort in Cabo yet. The staff was very friendly, the pools weren't crowded, beautiful location and the food and drinks were great. The resort is well kept and beautiful. The resort is close to the marina and walking distance to Pelican beach. The rooms were perfect and looked great. Will definitely come back here again!!!
