Two weeks of fun and sun

Pros: The resort staff is out of this world.
Cons: There should be free WiFi for all guest.
Location: It's right on the beach and within walking distance to the marina/downtown. The resort has everything, so you don't have to leave unless you want to
This place is Totally Amazing! Best of all, the staff is absolutely incredible . The entertainment staff was out of this word (Natalie, Jordan, Jordie, and Gabriela) - they do a excellent job at making your stay fun and exciting. The different themed dinners offered throughout the week are a blast, so much fun. We meet new friends from all over the country during these parties. When it comes to food, the resort serves excellent food from a variety of different restaurants at reasonable prices. Last but not least, the resort has a photographer (Nichole) on site, that does an amazing job. Thank you all so much for all of your hospitality!

Cabo, Come on Back!

Pros: Lay-out of the grounds, staff, comfort, pools, decor, and closeness to beach.
Cons: It is too late to better sound-proof the walls, but we could hear everything inside our rooms.
Location: Location was superior to the town of Cabo....so many things to do.....not enough time!!!
Although we were placed in a different hotel the first night, we were checked into the original the next morning. Room with a view of the ocean, friendly and competent staff, and plenty of activities were available several times a day. We will return!!!

Noisy hotel with beautiful views

Upon entering the hotel, the lobby was very fancy looking, and the staff was very charming and helpful. We stayed at a Jr Suite, and the views from our side of the hotel as well as our room where amazing; however, it was very noisy at night because you can hear the music coming from the parties at other hotels and boats across the marina, so bring earplugs if you’re a light sleeper. The mattress smelled old, it wasn’t terrible, but the mattress also sagged in some areas. The bathtub was difficult to get in and out from because the tile made it really high and there were no steps to assist. Lighting was dim in the bathrooms, so it was hard for the girls to do their makeup. That said, it wasn’t all bad, the place was really clean, the staff was friendly, the furniture in the rooms was nice, and the pools were AWESOME. We would stay here again, but only after trying other hotels.

Another great stay at Playa Grande!

Pros: Great rooms. Great pools. Great staff.
Cons: The new infinity pool should be bigger!
Location: Went whale watching with Cabo Adventures. Highly recommend. Can book Cabo Adventures tours thru the hotel and bill to room.
Have been coming here for 15 years. They have done an excellent job of keeping the hotel clean and updated. They were building a new infinity pool that we were able to spend some time in. Great, friendly, attentive staff. Great location - on the beach and close to marina/town. Highly recommend staying here!
