Playa Grande Resort
Travel Blogs from Cabo San Lucas
We woke up at 4am, to catch our 7am flight to Cabo! This was the girls first airplane ride, and they did wonderful:) First leg was only 1.5 hours, but the 2nd leg was 4. They slept most the time, note to self, must always fly in the morning with them.
My parents, sister, and brother-in-law met us at our resort, we checked in, had some drinks …
Today we hung out at the pool, drank, ate, relaxed.....so nice to be back in Cabo. Later, we walked into town and ate at Gordo LeLe's Tacos and Tapas, best tacos in town!! A must, and such a nice man/cook, Javier:)
Our last whole day together begins with the girls playing in the pools while the guys enjoyed a visit to the spa. Jeff experienced his first facial, they all came back with shiny cheeks so I think it was a successful morning.
Pool time and beach time was on the agenda, cold beers and margaritas kept us hydrated.
Off to Cabo looking for a sports bar where Kristi and watch the Chargers. Dinner began ...
... cool because it was tucked into a very small mountain range-cove. I walked the pier, grabbed a map from one the many people sitting around trying to sell you **** and head over to Cabo Wabo. Cabo Wabo is the bar that Van Halen opened up in the 1990's. I figure I at least better stick my head in there to see what was happening. Granted it was only 5PM so I was not expecting to much weirdness but this would be like me going to Orlando and not going ...
... looking at the belly of my first one and the slippery sucker jumped right out of my hands! I was met with a great big gasp from the crowd along with some looks of disapproval. I may have given mine some brain damage as it began to walk AWAY from the ocean but it was ultimately swept away by the tide.

Historical Traveler Reviews Playa Grande Resort Cabo San Lucas
We stayed a week at the Playa Grande, and loved it there. We have never stayed in a more imaculately clean place. All of the people who worked there went out of their way to be helpful and friendly. Even though they say you can walk to town, I think it would be quite a ways to walk.
The best of the best
we spent a week at PG thanks to my coworker. now i am back to seattle and thinking about buying one. the pool was very thoughtfully designed for kids and my 18 month old daugher totally enjoyed it. i was able to catch Cierra right in front of the hotel as well by surf fishing.
Clean, Fun, and Very relaxing!
We were blown away by how nice our hotel room was. The pools were perfect for swimming and relaxing, and offered breathtaking views of the ocean. Unfortunately, the beach, while beautiful, was unswimable because of the strong undertow. The hotel was only about a ten minute walk into town. One should also be warned that they are doing construction and during the day it can be noisy out on the balconies. It wasn't much problem for us because we stayed out by the pool. Overall, we would recommend this resort. Youll have a fabulous time!
Heaven on earth
Playa Grande is the best location on the most private beach. The resort is unbeleivably clean, staff is very friendly and accommodating and the suites are tastefully decorated with stone and granite and color color color.. A perfect resort a perfect vacation thank you playa grande staff management and the people of caboasta till next year................
Loved it so much we bought there
Having stayed at Solmar for years (married there) we were able to tour Playa Grande while it was beginning to be built. The Staff works between both properties and can not be beat! Lupita is the Crown Jewel there, and has a warm, friendly, effecient and fantastic crew! As a travel agent, I recommend both properties highly, though the beds are much better at Playa Grande....the food is excellent and the views are exquisite. All-in-all, I can not recommend it enough. Cabo is growing too fast, but the people at these hotels make the guests feel pamperd and as welcome as family. Don't forget to take in Cafe Santa Fe in Todos Santos for one of the best meals around.
Best so far in Mexico
Playa Grande was excellent, best suite I have had in Mexico so far. The construction noise could be real but it was not close to my room so could not hear it, Finisterra would be noiser. Staff was great, quiet beach, no vendors. Cabo is in my opinion is in trouble though, restaurants in town are expensive, activities overpriced, many better places in the world to go to but the convenience of a short flight may offset the price. Do some research and you can get some killer deal on rooms at the Playa Grande if you check last minute travel, like $30 a night...awesome!! Also, the best restaurant I found was the Missione de Kino(sp) up the street from the Mar De Cortez hotel, great atmosphere and reasonable prices. Have fun!
My family and I go to Cabo every year. We have been there the last three years. We purchased a penthouse at Playa Grande resort. And what can I say, it is AWESOME! The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The grounds, beach, pools and rooms are all kept immaculant. We would come "home" from a day at the beach, and our maid, would have it looking as good as it did when we first got there. They have three pools there, one with a swim up bar. You have a private beach which is just on the other side of lover's beach. People go there just to relax, swim, snorkel and lay on the beach. The only way to get there is by boat! You can pay a couple bucks and they will take you there. It is closer to town, but yet so quite it feels like your in the middle of no where. It is only about a 10 minute walk to town. The natives there are extremely friendly and helpful. We have met alot of people there from the last two years, and end up meeting up with them again the following year. Cabo and Playa are definetly paradise!
Noise at the playa grande
do NOT go to the playa grande any time soon unless you want to hear construction noise from 6:30 am until 8 pm. they're building the lobby, and the noise was so bad, you couldn't here the person next to you. we were there for 2 weeks over thanksgiving, and will not be back for at least a year, probably more.
From the time you arrive at Playa Grande until you check out the staff will provide as little or as much assistance as you require.
Beautiful, loved it!
Loved it there! The weather was great! Lots of fun,in the sun! Be ready to drink, and eat a lot, oh and or course relaxation!
