We had a great week at the Solmar. The hotel was smaller and older, but rooms were clean, great AC,and awesome staff. They upgraded our rooms free of charge and without even asking. We did the all inclusive and it was awesome. The food was some of the best food I have ever had at an all inclusive. The staff, Juan, Vincente, Mayo, Samuel, Ishmil, Daniel, Teresa and Javier upfront all were all awesome!! The construction noise was a little annoying.

We stayed at the Solmar and really enjoyed it. It is an older resort but the rooms are clean. We requested a room on the first floor and by the pool and they delivered. The isnt an ocean view but we had a beautiful view of the pool. We were really 50 steps from the pool. We decided to try the inclusive for the drinks. The restaurant service is slow but the food was great. Vincente the pool waiter was the best. He literally ran all day. The resort staff was always pleasant and willing to do anything for you. Would we go back again of course!!

It seems like to old SolMar is just the poor relative of the family. The new hotel took the pool, restaurant, and view. They even blocked ocean view from current restaurant with sand barrier. As a SolMar customer you are only welcome at the Grand SolMar when you attend a unpleasant timeshare sales presentation. The staff is outstanding, considering the conditions that they have to work under. It was a nice facility before. Rooms are very noisy with equipment running next to the units.

The first Junior suite they put us in smelled of mildew. We asked to be moved. They were out of Jr. suites so they put us in an upgraded room ... and charged us $40.00 extra per day. We paid for the all inclusive package but on Monday, they were out of bottled water, tequila, diet coke, limes, straws, and all flavors of smoothies for the kids. Security also let a drunk guest into our room while we were out and did not verify that she should have been in another room until an hour later. She threw up on the couch before they were able to get her out. Despite much conversation with management over these issues, they only removed the extra $40.00 per day charge. Not even close to adequate compensation for what happened. Stay away from this place.

Dear 1NORM1;

First of all thank you for taking the time to sharing your service experience at Solmar.

Totally agree with you, no adjustment is enough to compensate for failure in service. Therefore we immediately agreed to your mandatory request to delete the amount of your up graded suite.

At the time of your departure when you told me you had such inconveniences I felt very ashamed and I offered you my deep and sincere apologies which I repeat again. I know that our staff must follow the procedures and reason rather than impulse and good faith to guarantee our customer´s complete satisfaction for their paid services.

The time of our guests is very valuable to us therefore the time we took at your check out it was the strictly necessary to let express yourself and offer a solution.

On the other hand I am happy to know that the rest of your family has enjoyed their vacations and the wedding party as expressed to our staff at their check out.

Thank you again for sharing your comments through this we will strengthen the process of training our staff to ensure strict adherence to our procedures and standards.

We look forward to the opportunity to serve again and provide an even better experience at Solmar.

Cordially

Resident Manager

My fiance and I stayed 06/26-07/03. The location is wonderful!!! The beach while not swimmable is beautiful and very private. Its just a short walk and a small climb over some rocks to Lovers Beach where you can swim or snorkel, I would suggest it. Its a easy walk into town, we would walk then cab it back.

The room was clean but a little dated, I understand its a old hotel but they have kept the rooms in good shape. They can use a bit of updating but still a good value. We enjoyed the free Wi-fi and the location of our room (right next to the pool). Our room was always clean and we could hear the waves if we kept our screen open, nice to sleep to.

Our vacation wouldnt of been nearly as enjoyable if the staff wasnt as great as they were. Vincente, waiter by the pool, was wonderful as well as Placido making the drinks. Jose did a good job of making everyone comfortable to join in any activities if they wanted. The only issue and is wasnt a huge deal, but the process of eating often took quite a bit longer than you would expect. The food was good but it just took so long to eat, often waiting a while. All in all the staff at Solmar was great!!!

Solmar is a good value, the location and the staff were wonderful and I would absolutely stay again. Go and enjoy!!!

Greetings from Cabo!!

Thank you for sharing your experience of service at Solmar Resort.

We are glad to know you have enjoyed the service of our staff and the hotel location. Certainly we are in a secluded beach where you can enjoy the breathtaking views, sunsets, etc. but at the time close enough to down town area.

You should be happy to know that by comments like yours we are working this summer to improve our suites therefore we hope you visit us again to see and enjoy our changes.

Thank you again for your comments, we hope to see you again at Solmar Resort.

Best regards!!

I am about to leave this wonderful place after 8 days here. I found it to be the ideal location in Cabo San Lucas, just a brief walk to the marina, but in an isolated part of town away from the riff raff.

The rooms are colossal and kept very clean. The maids come twice a day and really do an excellent job.

Although it's an AI hotel, the food was FANTASTIC! Usually I find that they compromise the quality of the food when everything is included, not this place.

Free wifi, and Jesus delivering drinks at the pool, vendor free beach, deals on activities are some other reasons why I found this place to be so great!

This resort was great! One of my girlfriends and I were looking for a cheap getaway and Solmar fit the bill. We were totally impressed with beautiful resort and awesome 2 bedroom suite. The 2-room suite was clean and spacious and the Spanish tiles gave the room a true Mexico feel. We loved the 2-full bathrooms and the 2 balconies both over looking the resort with a clear view of the ocean.

We absolutely loved that this place was all inclusive. We gave Solmar a run for their money; we definitely drank the value of our flight/hotel cost! The liquor is cheap and the wine from a jug, but the beers were always ice cold and refreshing. We made sure to always tip the bartenders and servers while we were there so they'd continue to bring us ice cold drinks. This was also beneficial to us when the restaurants/bars close at 10 as we were often served "roadies" to take down to the beach. One evening we both left with double fisted with 2 solo cups full of wine.

The food was good. Nothing phenomenal but totally worth the price we paid for all inclusive. I liked the tacos and chips and guacamole the best.

The pool area was great! We loved the swim up bar and areas to sit/lay while laying in the pool. We were always able to find chairs and loved that the servers circled around the pool to take orders. The beach is just steps away and has hammocks and lounge chairs available. You can walk to Land's End and it's a pretty easy climb over the rocks to Lover's Beach. That was definitely one of the highlights of our trip.

It really is a short 10 minute walk into town. Anyone who says it isn't a short walk is just a fat, lazy American. We walked into town a couple times for excursions and to eat dinner. The path is well lit at night, but we usually ended up taking a taxi home. Our favorite excursion was the Cabo Blue catamaran for an afternoon of snorkeling. For $60 we got 3 hours on the boat, lunch and beer/cocktails. The crew definitely made the trip a lot of fun.

Yes there is some construction, but it was never noisy or really even noticeable. In fact, the few times you did notice it was almost fascinating to watch the cranes. Our only negative "incidence" was on the day of check out. Since we pretty much were eating and drinking all day/everyday at the pool, we didn't realize you need to close out your tab after ordered. We usually kept them open and signed at the end of the day. On the last day of our stay, we had got some waters and diet cokes and did not close out our "tab" before we checked out. When we came down to the pool to say goodbye to our friends we were told we owed something like 250 pesos. We ended up working things out with the server to put the drinks on our friends tab.

Solmar had everything we were looking for in a relaxing resort with a true Mexico feel. If you're looking for a Westin or a Hyatt, I suggest you check into one of those places, but if you just great true Cabo experience check out Solmar.
