Close to everything!Posted Mar 31, 2014
Great place to stay if you don't like the hotel experience. The place was very clean and bug free (BIG Plus). The rooms were large they could have accommodated 3 couples comfortably and the A/C worked well. The kitchen had everything you'll need. You can take a bucket of beer to the pool and no one cares but you can still order from the pool bar if you like that. We went during Spring Break but didn't have any trouble with crazy party types. This place is so close to town and the beach that you don't need a car but if you like having one there is ample safe parking. They do not have daily maid service and I loved that...no one knocking on your door while you are trying to nap on vacation (2nd BIG Plus). Helpful staff, nice grounds, nice pool and location, location, location (3rd)!

Marina Sol is all about locationPosted Mar 15, 2014
Pros: Staff First, Then the other people staying, living there.
Nora and I are in our fifties although we are active we prefer a quieter, more family friendly environment. Marina Sol is close to the beach the Mall & Downtown.

Good learning experiencePosted Mar 13, 2014
Pros: It was centrally located and Francisco the bar tender was pretty awesome.
Cons: They need to update the place, you can tell it is a pretty old building and old amenities, also the staff could be a bit more friendly.
Location: It is a block from the beach, and a block from downtown which is awesome.
The pictures of the hotel made it seem better than it was once we arrived. We were a little disappointed by some of the staff that would pretend not to know what I was saying, but my girlfriend would talk to them and they would hold a conversation. The store that is onsite is well... Just goto WalMart and get your stuff as they lack a lot of items and also seem to have quite a language barrier.

Close to town Condo units.Posted Feb 23, 2014
Pros: The price, close to town, pool area was quite nice and the Oasis Bar & Grill had good food and reasonable prices.
Cons: The buildings is old, there could be improvements but the condo units are owned by individuals who are responsible for the decorations.
Location: The marina, and town are in walking distance for almost anyone.
We enjoyed our stay at the Marina Sol. I'll start by saying this isn't a place for everyone, it's old, one of the first in Cabo San Lucas. The units are all owned by people so it's not a "Hotel" or "Resort"; you take care of yourself. If you stay ask for a pool view room which are quieter. The "Oasis Bar & Grill" has good prices and food, and the staff are attentive. You pay as you go, with cash or credit card not charging to the room. (which we prefer) The Marina Sol caters to an older crowd as far as we could tell. The only issue at check-in was we got a street view room to start, but this was taken care of when I showed them the email confirming a Pool/Patio view room. If you don't want to pay a large price, want to be close to town, and don't mind an older building then give it a try! If you need an elevator ask for the TOWER building.

Nice condo close to beach and marinaPosted Jan 14, 2014
Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: Better unit indication by Expedia
Location: Swimming, shopping and interesting eats
We just returned from a 2 –week stay at Marina Sol over the New Year. Overall, a wonderful vacation with gorgeous weather and views. We chose this location for its value, central location, and non all-inclusive feature. It is not your typical resort hotel but rather 5 blocks of privately-owned condominiums ringed around a large, swimming pool. We booked through Expedia and was given a unit in Block A ( which had an elevator ). Truthfully, our first unit was not the newest or fanciest and was musky and very dated. We had a very small television, a small hair-dryer, noisy taps and near non-existent WIFI ( which negatively affected my kids ). On the other hand, for me, the staff is so warm and unassuming. Yolanda and Tony ( my new friends ) helped us move to another unit after 10 days when the guests left – just to accommodate my kids’ need for all things “tech”. Then, there is Raul, the concierge, such a helpful and wonderful guy ( I call him “Zorro” for his dashing personality ). We even made friends and ate at the premises' palapa, Oasis Bar & Grill. Hola to Berenice, Pamela, Sophia, Bartolo and Pancho. Yes, for the friends and good memories made, I would stay at the Marina Sol again. Till we meet again… Take care and Thanks.

We were given a Condo that needed refurbishing bad.The towels were in ragged condition. Bedroom had no Window, Bathroom Sink did not drain good. All in all not good experience.

Good and also DissapointingPosted Apr 16, 2013
Pros: The staff, pool area and location
Cons: The noise of traffic and inconsiderate people early in the morning
Location: Good location close to beach,shopping and marina areas
The hotel location was very good and the pool area and Oasis bar and grill were also very good. We upgraded our room at time of booking and upon arrival were disapointed with state of the rooms cleanlyness. We don't expect everything to be new but an upgrade to kitchen and furniture wouldn't hurt. Chipped glasses and a coffee maker falling apart don't cut it. We had room A211 and paid 1,500 for 10 days, It was a very noisy location starting at 6 am which is fine if you don't want to sleep in on your holidays. ..We had agreat time with our other family members, but felt that we paid tooo much, especially for an upgraded room.

Comfortable, Clean and ConvenientPosted Apr 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
We found Marina Sol to be exactly what we were looking for. It is an older hotel but very clean. We were pleased with the roominess of the unit and the close proximity to everything we wanted to explore. We sometimes took taxis, sometimes took the city bus and most of the time, we walked to our destinations. Raul, the Concierge was very helpful when my husband broke his glasses and we needed to get them fixed. Our bed was a little bit lumpy and the kitchen toaster didn't work but nothing worth stressing out over! We did have a little problem when we changed our dollars to pesos. We had to go to three banks before we found one which would exchange! You want to keep some pesos because some restaurants don't take bank cards and don't keep a lot of cash on hand for change. But we loved our ttime in Cabo!

Great value!Posted Apr 2, 2013
Pros: Quiet and close to everything
Cons: Pool got a bit icky at end of week
Location: Fantastic location, walking distance to everything!
Great value for your dollar! Close to marina, beach and restraunts, walking distance to everything you may want/need. Very quiet, great staff. This is not a "hotel", but individually owned condo's that are rented out. So be aware you may have to bring things like soap, shampoo and dish detergent etc.
