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.

Very loud music Thur-sunday

Pros: Nice restaurants and staff. Nice Spa. Walking distance to town
Cons: When booking ask for central or water access. Avoid the Ridge area. They will push this area as a private and exclusive area. Don't buy it.
Location: About a 45 min drive from airport. Average rate 100.00 dollars. You will be ambushed by time share offers right from the gate. Beware. Easy walk
We reserved a suite while our other friends we were with reserved Jr suites. We were all booked in a room near the center of hotel and told we were going to be moved the next day. Everyone in the Jr suite were moved around the pool center area. We reserved and paid for a luxury suite and were moved in a remote upper area called the Ridge. Near the marina. Below a busy street and ships in and out all day. There were several night clubs open all night and did not get any sleep. This is a Rci time share property. Constant sells all week starting at the airport. Please Do your homework when staying at this property.

Thanks for your review, We are taking legal action against the property that is breaking city ordinance late night music hours. This just started after the Holidays and The Ridge section has been enjoyed by many happy guests. The Ridge section is newer, larger balconies and a view to the Marina so the Front Desk team honored the room you paid for since your first night due to high occupancy they located you in our regular Ocean section. We hope to have the chance to host you again soon.

Family trip

Pros: Room was spacious and comfortable. Pool areas had plenty of chairs and staff was very friendly. Spa was awesome.
Cons: More self parking area. The parking garage is not very big and there weren't enough spaces on busy days.
Location: Location is convenient to the marina and downtown dining and shopping. You can easily walk to the marina or public beach area.
The hotel staff was very attentive. We were upgraded from two rooms to a suite for the same price. Room was spacious and very comfortable for our family of 5. The staff was knowledgeable about the area and local attractions.

You will love this place

Pros: Everything!
Cons: Nothing
Location: We mostly stay at the hotel and only ventured into town twice. Taxis are easy to come by and reasonably priced. The beach is too dangerous to swim.
Beautiful room! Clean. Large. Modern. Love Love Love this place!
