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.

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!

Great service, excellent response to any questions or issues, hospitality was awesome, safe, and food was very good and portions were more than enough. We opted for all inclusive which worked out great since food and drinks were excellent. It did get a little too windy one day but they were quick to help by tying up umbrellas. Recreational activities were fun and they did not bother you to join in - simply asked in a nice manner. Overall, very nice! I'd definitely go back.

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.

A great Cabo hotel

Our stay was terrific. The hotel is well maintained; the public areas and guest rooms are decorated well. The staff is very attentive and pricing for food and drinks was fair. There were a large number of activities at the pools (volleyball, basic scuba lessons, aerobics, fun games, etc.) that were never bothersome and were entertaining. The beach that the hotel is on is unswimmable, but makes for a nice walk. This hotel has all the pluses of the large resorts along the corridor, plus has a great location that allows you to walk to many nightspots. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place for young couples, families, or anyone else that wants to stay close to town in a very nice hotel.

Fantastic getaway

Our family spent a week at the resort. The grounds were beautifully maintained and manicured. We ate dinner at one of their "fiesta" themed parties and the food was delicious. Fun entertainment even for our teenagers. Sunday brunch on the beach was great! I was worried about not staying at Medano beach, but the beach setting was beautiful--not recommended for swimming. It was great to be away from the Medano crowds. Easy access to all beaches via water taxi. Easy walk to town and access to restaurants. Perfect location. Overall a great experience!

Great Location

Great hotel. The grounds are beautiful and the pools are great. Beach is nice, but you can't swim and the surf is so dangerous you can't even walk in the water. The location is great for walking to the marina or town restaurants, but the food at the resort is quite good as well. There is a little pressure to check out the timeshare plans, but it wasn't too crazy. The biggest negative is the internet! Horrible!!! Slower than dial-up!! If you are going for business or need to be connected then go elsewhere . . .

Beautiful beach getaway

This is one of the most beautiful hotels we have stayed at. The only negative was the high pressure sales. Spa was exceptionally nice, employees were there to take care of your every need. The views from this hotel are gorgeous, the cleanliness was exceptional. Our family had absolutely no complaints and had a wonderful time.

Super Vacation Experience

Everything was outstanding...Every night for 10 nignts we found an activity that included entertainment and great food...The facility was clean and very relaxing and the hotel staff went well out of their way to ensure you were pampered constantly.... All of the staff treated us like family and we found it difficult to leave.... Definately we will be back...10 days isn't long enough. The activities are endless...

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.

Wonderful Hotel in Great Location

Second year in a row staying at this hotel and had an even better experience than last year. The rooms are large [we stayed in a luxury suite which had 2 bathrooms] the view was terrific and being pool people we loved, loved, loved them. The people working there made our experience that much better such as the front desk clerk Juan Carlos, the concierges Paula and Angel, Jorge and his staff at the Brigantine restaurant [we were in a rush to get to the airport yesterday and didn't want a breakfast buffet and didn't have time to order off the menu but Jorge let us pick a few things off the buffet for a minimal charge and it was much appreciated], and last and by no means least Marina who we saw at the activities desk near the pool who gave us advice, tips galore, kindness, patience and even though we didn't do many activities at the hotel she was always, always wonderful to us. Don't hesitate to stay at this gorgeous property!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

At the bottom of the hill of the Playa Grande is the bus stop. TAKE THEM! They're not very fancy looking but they're a buck to go anywhere. If you don't speak any Spanish get someone at the hotel to write down where you're going and people on the bus will help you. Going anywhere by cab is expensive.
