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!

Terrific staff- all levels of staff

The staff at all levels were focused on making sure we were comfortable and completely satisfied with the accommodations and our overall stay. Our reservation was messed up and they were efficient and generous in making us feel taken care of. Management was very professional and upgraded us no charge to make things right.

Great hotel

Nice facility with good restaurants. The beach is not swimmable, however. You can take a water taxi over to medano beach for swimming. Rooms are big and very comfortable. We would definitely stay here again!

Very nice hotel, lots of amenities, great staff

Pros: The staff, the room configuration, all of the different pools, bars and restaurants, the spa. We used the gym, $11/day for non-owners.
Cons: The couches in both of our rooms were looking worn.
Location: Very close to the marina, free shuttle to the sister properties, close to town, lots to do.
We had a very good experience at this hotel. We did have to switch rooms the second day, but we ended up with a great view and a really nice room. Our first room was on the ground floor and no view, but very close to the pools and beach, so would have been good for a family that wanted to be very close to everything. The hotel was at capacity, but they were able to give us a choice the next day of 2 other rooms, we choose 1306, which was was on the third floor with a good view of the ocean and overlooked the resort pools. Perfect! It was also very private. The lounge chairs at the pool were very nice. My brother and sister-in-law did the Wednesday night beach party and loved it - they said the food and entertainment were great. I was able to spend one morning at the Ridge pool (private for those staying at that side of the resort), and it was just what I wanted - quiet, great view, awesome service. Had a massage and express facial. The massage was really relaxing, I would pass on the express facial next time and do a pedicure or something else. The drinks at the pools were very good. Lots of different areas to enjoy. The staff was very accommodating and very pleasant, I give all of them a "5". We really liked our room set up - 1 bedroom suite with kitchen, but the furniture is getting a bit worn. It was nice having 2 full bathrooms. We would stay here again, I wish we could have stayed longer!

Another great stay at Playa Grande

Pros: location and class.
Cons: replace fold-out sofa beds (reason I gave 4 instead of 5 on room comfort)
Location: close to town, walking distance to marina, bus stop, taxis, restaurants, shopping.
Fantastic location and staff, great pools and beach.
