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.

rated higher thsn it is worth

I stayed fot one night as it was revommended. Very busy caotic entrance amd appeared lined with time share/membership desks. Room was not ready at checkin amd no area to rest so i went to yhe pool. Looks awsiting service, no activities, food ok but very expensive everywhere! Room was attractive but coild tell thst it was rushed yo vlean and smelled of urine. Fans very loud. Staff was very nice and generally help. Located close to the marina but a lng walk to the nightlife amd good restaurants. Beach ok but unsightly undeveloped dpave to the sife of the hotel. Rated as a 4 star hotel but altogether adds up to 3.5 to us. Can get a better deal easily.

Beautiful grounds and views!

This hotel was great! The staff were great, the grounds were beautiful, the rooms were spacious. The only negatives were that the bed and sofa bed were not that comfortable. Also, since the hotel is on the Pacific side, you can't swim in the ocean there. But if you're not an ocean swimmer, then it wouldn't really matter, and there are lots of pools. The views from the rooms were fantastic since all rooms face the pools and have ocean views. I liked that there was a mini mart inside the hotel. The food and drinks were good. I also liked the adult only pool and swim up bar. The location was good too. You could either walk or take a short taxi ride into the town. I would definitely stay here again.

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

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

BAJA CANTINA cooked our fish and it was excellent. NO WORRY had a very good BIG BURRO (beef or chicken) for lunch, we were there several times. We had fish done at the GALLEON it was very poor and the most expensive. We heard they were good for Italian food.
