Just spent a wonderful relaxing week at Playa Grande...it was very relaxing, the new lobby opened while we were there and it's beautiful, all of the staff, from the front desk to the housekeepers, were extremely helpful and pleasant. This was our third year back to Los Cabos and we look forward to going back again. Places that we ate at in town include, The Shrimp House, Felix's, Pancho's, Casa Rafael's (wonderful food, ambience and staff)Matzalan"s (grilled shrimp and lobster) 100% Natural (outside Puerto Paradisio Mall by Marina) and great breakfast at Playa Grande and Mama's. We took a 6 hr tour of San Jose del Cabo and Los Cabos and it was very worthwhile. We saw parts of Los Cabos we had not seen before, lots off the main drag and San Jose del Cabo was half the size of Los Cabos and very quaint..no street hawkers, fewer shops with all the same mdse, and lots of wonderfull little hide-away places to eat....next visit will definitely take a full day trip to San Jose...it had more the feel of a mexican town, instead of a resort destination. There were four of us one the trip and we all enjoyed it...one thing I especially liked at Playa Grande was that the pools closed at 9:pm...and quiet settled all around, except for the sound of the surf...we slept with the balcony door open every night.....We loved the locals, they were very kind, helped us with getting around on the buses ( we learned alot taking the buses and saved abunch of money too!), as our tour guide said, they love us, as we are the livelihood for almost 80% of the people in Los Cabos. I would definitely recommend a visit to Los Cabos and San Jose del Cabo for a relaxing vacation...we plan on going back many times.

Playa Grande was great! The relaxed atmosphere was perfect for just sitting and reading, etc. in the sun. We visited from Feb 29-March 7th this year. The construction noise was very low key, I'm amazed at the nasty comments! Excellent breakfasts in the restaurant, we usually ate dinner elsewhere, make sure you go to Romeo & Julietta. Service was excellent, especially the maid service. Don't be in hurry-like most of Mexico the service is slower than in the US. But that was nice, the drinks by the pool weren't pushed on you like in Las Vegas, etc!

We saw at least 30 whales in the Pacific right in front of the Hotel during our week. One morning as I sat on the beach at dawn. about three whales surfaced only 8-10 yards from me!

We loved Playa Grande, upgraded our timeshare to a one bedroom to enjoy it for years to come.

This place would be it!

My family stayed here 3/21 to 3/28 a spring break week. It was busy, but not over crowded. The lounge chair thing was a small hassle, but acceptable.

Great location, a 10 minute walk to the towne and many great restaurants. Ask for 10% off coupons to the Galleon, Romeo y Julieta's & the Sea Queen.

The Sea Queen was excellent and the other two are very good. The Sea Queen, is a great resaturant with an classy feel, excellent band, very good sushi, great seafood entree's, and desserts and even has a full playroom (tactfully soundproofed from the main dining room, but with full glass windows so you can watch the children).

Favorite restaurant was Casa Rafael's - on the other side of the marina behind the mall. Very good entertainment, best margarita ever, and great food and service. BTW the ladies like Ramon, one of the Cuban owners.

If you want an authentic experience, try one of the local Taqueria's, we had an excelent but simple meal for 8 for about $60. We also had an interesting serenade from an 8 year old boy who sings nightly. It was a great experience.

The resort itself had fantastic pools, pretty beaches although you can't swim there, and it is not a white or soft sand. The views are gorgeous though!

The weather was consistently perfect. The construction noise was there as you will see many complaints, however I did not find it troubling at all. In fact I fell asleep during the day, in my room, on the balcony and by the pool, all in the midst of the construction.

The gym and spa are not ready, but I toured them, and when they are you will be wowed!

The maid service was excellent. The restaurant was better than most resorts, the service was very good, and the people were helpful and friendly.

The rooms are suites, definitely bigger than a normal hotel room.
Beautiful use of limestone, marble and granite.

We also stayed at the Villa Del Palmar, a major competitor, and I must say that Playa Grande outclasses Villa Del Palmar is every category.

Go to this resort!
