Playa Grande Resort & Grand Spa sits on prime real estate: a private beach within strolling distance of Land's End. The hacienda-style property lures with 260 rooms and suites boasting ocean views and traditional furniture, plus kitchens or kitchenettes.  The resort bustles with activity, sporting three pools, 11 restaurants and bars, and a spa whose signature is seaweed-based services.
Dining
Playa Grande Resort & Grand Spa covers global tastes at 11 restaurants and bars. Patrons might start at the breakfast buffet at patio-equipped Calima, then grab authentic Mexican fare and smooth tequilas at Hacienda El Coyote and finish with wood-fired pizza at Italian Restaurant Romeo Y Julieta. Ambiance plays a big part in dining and cocktail drinking here -- even from the lobby sports bar, where patrons watch UFC fights on Saturday nights.
Rooms
Traditional decor -- heavy woods, gilded frames -- bring an old-world feel to the 260 rooms and suites at Playa Grande Resort & Grand Spa. Landscape portraits, marble floors, archways and pillars further the drama. For groups, space is not an issue, thanks to multiple layouts that feature kitchens or kitchenettes with utensils included and separate living areas. Private, furnished balconies beckon with views of the sparkling Pacific.
Highlights
  • Private beachside resort a few steps from Land's End
  • Kids eat and stay free with parents
  • Kids club with supervised activities

Recreation

Guests might be in the heart of Cabo San Lucas, but at Thalassotherapy Spa, the inspiration comes from France. Using seaweed- and sea-water-based treatments developed by the French in the 19th century, the spa takes advantage of its unique position on the Sea of Cortez to pamper guests from head to toe. Perfecting the bliss are seaside cabanas where visitors can enjoy Repechage Hydra Refine Seaweed Facials and Stone Journey Therapeutic Massages.

 

For group time, visitors can swim in three pools (or wade up to the swim-up bar) or ask the hotel to arrange ATV tours, charter boats for sports fishing and many more excursions through Cabo. A kids club with supervised activities rewards parents with relaxation.

Wonderful Hotel in Great Location

Second year in a row staying at this hotel and had an even better experience than last year. The rooms are large [we stayed in a luxury suite which had 2 bathrooms] the view was terrific and being pool people we loved, loved, loved them. The people working there made our experience that much better such as the front desk clerk Juan Carlos, the concierges Paula and Angel, Jorge and his staff at the Brigantine restaurant [we were in a rush to get to the airport yesterday and didn't want a breakfast buffet and didn't have time to order off the menu but Jorge let us pick a few things off the buffet for a minimal charge and it was much appreciated], and last and by no means least Marina who we saw at the activities desk near the pool who gave us advice, tips galore, kindness, patience and even though we didn't do many activities at the hotel she was always, always wonderful to us. Don't hesitate to stay at this gorgeous property!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

At the bottom of the hill of the Playa Grande is the bus stop. TAKE THEM! They're not very fancy looking but they're a buck to go anywhere. If you don't speak any Spanish get someone at the hotel to write down where you're going and people on the bus will help you. Going anywhere by cab is expensive.

Beautiful beach getaway

This is one of the most beautiful hotels we have stayed at. The only negative was the high pressure sales. Spa was exceptionally nice, employees were there to take care of your every need. The views from this hotel are gorgeous, the cleanliness was exceptional. Our family had absolutely no complaints and had a wonderful time.

Fantastic Family Vacation Spot

The hotel is absolutely beautiful, great views, perfect location, warm and friendly staff, great place to stay. Right by the Marina and within walking distance to downtown, Squid Row and all the fun nightlife. The Playa Grande Resort and Spa should actually be rated a 5-Star hotel, loved everything about it! Loved Cabo!

We went snorkeling (highly recommended), 4-hour boat trip on a Catamaran with all food and drinks included. Took a water taxi over to Medano Beach a couple of times, very fun/party place for everyone.

Excellent stay!!

The staff was right there to park the car and take our luggage to the room. The room they gave us had a great view and was very clean. The restaurants all had great food, a little over priced. The grounds were spotless and well maintained. The little store they had was stocked with just about anything you needed or forgot. It was a great place to stay. Con: no free WiFi

AAAAMAZING

I went to Cabo with one of my friends for spring break and was OBSESSED with Playa Grande! The hotel's location is great and is a quick 10 minute walk into town. The rooms are incredible and the activities were so much fun! It's nice to be a part of the spring break scene and be able to take a quick taxi or walk to the beach but also be able to relax by the pool in a more low key environment
