Perfect location!!

Posted Sep 23, 2017
Pros: Location, maid service, attention to our needs and wants by staff. Activities director, Allan, was great.
Cons: Music by the pool.
Location: Loved the location. So close to the marina. Taxi service was great and rates were reasonable.
Loved the location of the resort. Sits right on the beach, close to the ocean and close to the marina and downtown. Loved the pool with swim up bar. Staff was wonderful, always seeing to our needs and wants. Only have one complaint...the music at poolside was almost unbearable at times. Rap music was played everyday, dirty lyrics, played at high volume. Our stay was during the off season and mostly an older group of guests. The majority complained about this music and it took several tries every day to get the music changed and the volume turned down. BUT...the pros so outweigh the cons regarding the Solmar Resort. I am absolutely in love with this place and cannot wait to come back. The employees are friendly, warm lovable people and they take wonderful care of you. You do feel very important and appreciated!!! Hope to be flying back down soon to Cabo and opening the door to our room at the SOLMAR RESORT!

Great place in Cabo

Posted Sep 23, 2017
The only downfall of our stay was while at check in the host was overly persistent on wanting us to do a "breakfast and walk around" and maybe a time share sales pitch, but other than that the stay was great, friendly staff and good food.

Pros: Spacious rooms including kitchen facilities if you choose to cook, two full bathrooms.
Location: Marina, restaurants, bars, shopping
This resort sits above the hustle and bustle of downtown Cabo - in walking distance to the "action" but far enough away when you need to retreat from the party atmosphere. Because of the currents, the beach is unswimmable but beautiful to stroll the sands hand in hand. The service from the staff was friendly and impeccable. Outdoor activities had to be curtailed due to the tropical storm that hit late Wednesday, lasting all of Thursday. But because of the fast clean up by staff of the displaced sand and tree branches at the Solmar, we were unaware of the extent of damage that had occurred to downtown area hotels, businesses and roads. On Friday we checked out at Noon to go to our second prebooked hotel and the main highway was still impassible. The taxis brought us back, twice, and Solmar offered and gave us another room, free of charge, in which to relax and spend the night if needed until the main highway had reopened, which happened at 10pm. Thank you, Solmar, until we meet again.

Great food and clean

Posted Sep 13, 2017
For the AI plan this hotel does not offer buffet style. You place your order at the main restaurant, Tejaban, the snack bar, sushi bar, swim up bar, or waitresses walking around the pool..the food is made to order. So if there is something you may not like on your dish, simply tell them. Had a great experience with the food. Only thing is I didn't see anything included in the AI plan after 10pm (in case you wanted a late snack, bring out your wallet) The hotel is smaller and older than the sister hotel Grand Solmar located next door. It is very clean and safe. You can't swim at this beach. Located within walking distance the marina(my opinion as I saw many take shuttles or taxis) Great place for kids. Can't complain about anything

Great hotel with great lovely staff

Posted Aug 24, 2017
Solmar was a great hotel overall. The staff was so helpful. They all were willing to help and so nice. Every time we left the hotel and came back they greeted us. Our room was clean and had a great beach view.

Nice but nickel & dime if you don't do all inclus.

Posted Aug 23, 2017
Pros: Location, pool, convenience, easy to set up the shuttle to and from the airport.
Cons: WiFi should be free, concierge should do what concierge do - not be called concierge if they're really just timeshare sales people.
Location: Very short walk to town or a local beach (there's also a beach at the hotel)
The pool is nice, the staff is overall great, but the 'concierge' was very frustrating. I don't pay a bunch of money to go relax at a hotel just to have to tell someone SIX times that I will not be sitting through their timeshare BS. After twice of saying no, you're basically having to argue with them which is just obnoxious. Also, the hotel charges for WiFi, fair warning.

Hotel is in the other side of town, just a small walk from the crowded downton. It is great for a relaxed vacations. The view to the ocean is great. The hotel arranged a special private night dinner at the beach! It was an amazing experience and great dinner with the ocean and the stars!!
