Just OK

Posted Jun 22, 2015
Pros: Friendly staff, pool bar, location.
Cons: Needs room renovation!
While my time in Cabo was great, the hotel experience was a bit sub par. Having stayed at Playa Grande next door last year, I knew my expectations were going to be lower. Something about the rooms is kind of grimy to me. Maybe it's the excessive tiles all over the ground? The bathroom is very MEH. I guess it's an older hotel so they can kind of get away with it. Location is great, however. Few steps to the beach and a decent walk to downtown and the marina. Since Solmar is Playa's sister hotel, you get to use all of their awesome pools well. Food is again, just OK. Nothing special. I'd like to think the taste is enhanced because it's free. Drinks are also OK. I too thought it was weird to sign a "bill" every time I ordered food and drinks. It doesn't charge you, but still. I felt very obligated to tip for everything. Speaking of which, I found that when I didn't tip, my drinks would barely taste like alcohol! The staff is fine; you'll run into really nice ones and ones that will not give you attention if you don't tip. Didn't really notice the construction (sound wise). Loved the pool bar. Pool is supposed to close at 10 but they will shut it down earlier.

Already planning the next visit

Posted Jun 11, 2015
Friendly, friendly staff took care of all our needs. Hotel situated right on beach. A few minutes by foot to the marina and central CSL. Of note: this beach sin't suited for swimming between the waves and rip tide. Other beaches, like Medano, were easy to get to though via water taxi.

Nice Resort Close to Marina

Posted Jun 9, 2015
Very nice resort. I was upgraded to a huge room complete with jacuzzi. The resort staff was excellent. The bar service was great and the food was very tasty especially the sushi bar siting around the pool. Would stay at this resort again.

Intimate hotel on the beach

Posted May 31, 2015
The Solmar resort is fantastic! It is a 100 room intimate resort on the beach. The Tejaban restaurant is 5 star with the freshest foods. The staff is very friendly and attentive. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. The rooms are a little dated but are massive and very clean. This is a must if you travel to Cabo!!!

Long weekend trip

Posted May 27, 2015
Pros: Location.
Cons: Better customer service. Sometimes it's the little things that make or break a trip, like letting us keep our bands for an extra hr or so.
My wife and I booked a trip to the Solmar All Inclusive Resort, 5-21 thru 5-26. Overall the stay was good, food was normal all inclusive fare. Pro's were; close to town, nice clean rooms, although dated. two quiet pools with poolside service for drinks and lunch/snacks. Cons were; no lobby or area bar. The only bar was the swim-up bar so it was difficult to get a before or after dinner drink. Poolside service took forever, the poor servers were overworked. Hats off to Liz Elena and Irene who worked hard. The food was good, but after a few days all tasted the same... Overall, I would have to say I will not be staying there again. The final straw was the night before checkout, we asked if we could keep our bands till we left at 1:00 PM. We were told NO, checkout is 11:00 and the bands will be cut off then, no lunch before leaving. We were kind of homeless for 2 hrs till our shuttle arrived. We did see many other guests checking out late and wondered what was going on. Seems petty, but the resort lost at least our return and possibly friends and family more over that little detail.

Beautiful hotel

Posted May 26, 2015
Pros: It's beautiful, from my room I can see the ocean and also the pool. My room was upgraded to deluxe so I have 3 verandas, kitchen, living room 2 baths
Cons: The main lobby is very small no class considering this is a beaitiful hotel
Location: It's near other hotels like playa grande and grand solmar which is under construction . 15 minutes walk from the marina and flea market.
Spent 3 nights and 4 days in this hotel and I enjoyed staying on a beautiful hotel by the ocean and all of the staff were friendly, accommodating and professional.i only put 4 Sara on room comfort bec. Of the construction going but it only bothers me a little. Spa by the beach is the one we, with my husband enjoyed a lot. Good selection of food in Tejaban restaurant and delicious not to mention the ambience, dining while looking the tranquility of the ocean.
