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!
Paradise in Mexico
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.
Where Resort Design And Staff Assure You Have A Great Vacation
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.
The grounds and the rooms at the resort were spotless. The hotel staff were very courteous and went out of their way to assist you.
The resort offered discounted fishing trips thru the Solmar Fishing Fleet so our party booked with them. We resereved a 33' boat and captain that had been reccomended by other guests. The boat was very clean. Unfortunately after we got out of the harbor the engine overheated. The captain appoligized for any inconvience and informed us another bot was on its way for us. The backup boat that Solmar sent was close to 50'long and as clean as the first.
The restaurant prepared our catch for us three different ways (blackened, breaded and grilled). All was excellent as was the service.
The quality of the sushi served as well as the service at the Sushi Bar was also exceptional.
Because of its location most afternoons and evenings there is a cool breeze off the Pacific Ocean which was refreshing.
I have stayed at various resorts and hotels in town and found them to be very noisey.
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!

... the 24th so I treated him to the East Restaurant on top deck (basically it’s a fancy one on board you pay a supplement for, like a fancy London Restaurent), balloons, cake the lot; the beauty of boat life (god I sound like a ****) is the ease in arranging fancy things, one trip to reception and you’re done – did you know you can get married on board? Pretty cool, although 22 days in and I’m yet to ...
One thing that we hadn't done was hike the hills of the peninsula. We had spent days being berated by water taxi drivers insisting that we take their boat to Playa del Amor, but we refused each time and decided that we would hike there ourselves. After making sure we had our hiking boots, touristy hats, and sunscreen, we walked to the south edge of the marina past the locals' beach and toward the rocks. Scattered other adventurous groups had decided to take on the rocks, but all in all, ...
