Cabo San Lucas hotel tempts active travelers, spa goers
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.
Highlights
  • Private beachside resort a few steps from Land's End
  • Kids eat and stay free with parents
  • Kids club with supervised activities
  • Full-service spa and fitness center
  • Multiple restaurants and swim-up bar
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.
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.
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.

Beware of adult tv in rooms

Easy and pleasant walk to downtown. Great shower, bed is too soft. The room phone was out of service multiple times and told the front desk about it. It was only fixed once and not on the other times we told them about it. Shocked to see adult movies on tv, not good since we were travelling with kids.

Great Family Trip

We had a wonderful time at this hotel. We liked the location of the hotel because it was within walking distance into town. The staff was friendly and the room were very clean. We will go back again.

Being Nickeled and Dimed at every corner

This hotel is extremely large. There are two sections it has, one beach front, one harbor side. To walk from one side to another is a very very long walk. There are no signs to get around and it is very confusing getting around. We even asked several staff and they didn't know how to get around themselves and we're at a loss to help us find, our room, the pools, or the exit on how to get into town. Since it is a resort they really do not want you going into town to spend any of your money, which is fine for those who never want to leave the resort. But it is a 10-15 minute walk to leave the property to get into town, which should only be about 5 if they let you use the exit on the street, but they have very limited hours when you are allowed to have access to this. We stayed in an executive suite, and the room was really sized very nice, but that was the only thing we really liked about the hotel. One of the pools was filthy and had a layer of scum on it. There is no free wifi. At $500 dollars a night, I feel wifi should be free since there are no amenities offered. But they charge I believe $18 a day for internet.

Playa Grande

The hotel has great rooms, pools, and amenities. The beach is not swimmable. Renting a car and driving around helps a lot. Food is ok, food outside at the marine and the city is great.

Great for a vacation, but rather stay at Grand Solmar next time

Nice resort for the price, but prefer all-inclusive, which they offer at a very high cost. Sister resort , Grand Solmar is a 5 minute shuttle ride away is much better. Better drinks/food and amenities. Wi-fi is in desperate need of improvement. $13/day and you can only really use it on your patio or poolside. Also an additional charge to use the fitness center.

One of the best resorts in cabo

This place was great! Everyone was really friendly and the hotel was literally minutes from everywhere. Only down fall is you can not swim in the ocean, but the beach is a 5 minute cab ride away. I would stay here again.

Family vacation with adult children

We had a great time. The hotel is close enough to walk but with the humidity and heat (and the hill to get to the hotel) we often took a cab. It was $8 to go any where in town. The hotel staff only asked you about looking at time shares when you first get there and then they don't bug you again. The staff was very helpful and all spoke English. We would stay again!

Go down to the waterfront and ask for Marisol. She will help you find the best deals and you can trust her. Tell her that Chad and Tracy sent you. She made our vacation so much better!

Awesome Friends and Family Fiesta

First time in Cabo traveling with family and friends who go often, and we will definitely be back! The Playa Grande was fantastic, the staff was amazing, the room was delightful (definitely recommend the suite), and the private beach with access to other areas was a major plus! We took advantage of the fiesta and were very pleased with the entertainment and involvement by the staff. Also a great location to get downtown and enjoy the local eating spots and watering holes.
