This entire vacation at Marina Sol was totally an awesome, hassle-free experience for my wife and me. From the moment we arrived at our condo, I was completely overwhelmed with the beauty of the facility, the exceptional condition and cleanliness of the unit's rooms, the spectacular views, the friendly and helpful staff, the full range of services conveniently available both in the resort and in the close vicinity, and the security provided in the building 24/7. As I love the water, I especially appreciated the beautiful and exceptional clean swimming pool! Because of all the above plus the resort's location within walking distance to all the shops, marina, restaurants, beaches, we experienced far above our dreams for a much needed vacation from sub-zero weather in the States! We will certainly recommend Marina Sol to all our friends/family and we hope to make this a regular vacation destination for ourselves. Special thanks to Maggie and Clint in the office, Raul the Concierge in the lobby and Francisco at the poolside lounge/restaurant!

We really enjoyed our stay at Marino Sol. The location is perfect, close to the beach and the attractions of town. This resort felt like home to us; going to the Oasis for a meal or a drink was like being at a party with friends and the service can't be beat! The apartments are well appointed and thoughtfully furnished. We are recommending Marina Sol to our friends and we will certainly stay there again and again, year after year. Thank you all at Marina Sol for making this a memorable trip!

Room Tip: Street side views are spectacular at night and full of activity every morning.

Four couples rented this property in November for a 40th Birthday. The condo was perfect for the 8 of us. The shared space was perfect, but we also each had our own private bathrooms.

The location can't be beat, 3 minutes to Medano Beach, 8 minutes to downtown (near all of the bars and restaurants).

We had a chef prepare our meal the first night and the price was unbelievable and the food was amazing, we had left overs for a few days. Definitely ask Clint about the private chef, very reasonable.

I have stayed many times at Marina Sol and will return!!

Room Tip: The Ultimate Penthouse sleeps 5 couples!

My husband and I organized this trip a few weeks in advance of Christmas 2012. We were looking for a centrally located place, but did not want an all-inclusive or timeshare and did not require beachfront property (or prices).
Happily, we found Claire at Cabo Caliente Vacation Rentals. Claire lives in the Marina Sol complex and manages several units for individual owners. The complex is a mix of residents and rental units. She and her staff were wonderful and easy to work with.
We booked #D101. It had recently been renovated and was quite comfy (Some units in this complex are original, with no updating. Claire's units offer a nice selection).

They arranged airport transfers (including a grocery shopping stop) for us at a reasonable price. After our arrival, they also booked a fishing trip (local captain with a panga boat) and rental car for a day in Todo Santos. Both outings worked very well and we were pleased. My husband caught 2 marlin at the same time! Quite unusual and amazing!

The drinks and food at the pool bar were reasonable and the staff was quite nice. There are lots of other dining/drinking choices within easy walking distance. We particularly liked Tacos Gardenias (Claire's recommendation) and Sharkey's (just out the back gate of the condo - great lobster).
Medano Beach was about 1 1/2 blocks, which was perfect for us. We walked the beach several times and caught the water taxi to Los Arcos, but we were glad to be staying away from all the beach bar frenzy and relentless vendors. The marina was just over the hill and was a nice early morning walk for the fishing day.
I'd say this was a great value for what can be a very expensive destination. We will definitely recommend Cabo Caliente Vacation Rentals to any friends bound for Cabo.

We wanted a good condo location near Medano Beach and all the action, without paying the high prices the timeshare resorts charge. (2 adults and 2 adult children). We found it, with Marina Sol and Cabo Caliente rentals. Unit A610 is a roomy 2 br/2ba, with a full kitchen, outdoor barbq, satellite tv and beautiful sunset views. The pool is nice and Oasis has the cheapest drinks in town, but the best part is being just a short walk from the beach, marina, mall and anything else you want to do. All for a fraction of what the beachfront properties want to charge you. Highly recommend renting through Claire Griffiths and Cabo Caliente. They were so helpful with transportation, recommendations for restaurants and other Cabo tips. The money we saved on our room gave us extra to spend on activities, dining and loads of fun. Loved every minute of it.

Room Tip: Rent through Cabo Caliente. We had city view, which was beautiful, but a bit louder. If you want q...

Upon arrival we had to pay a $500 security deposit that wasn't mentioned. We clarified that we would get it back when we left. The Marina Sol Resort rental company charged us $450 for the utility bill for 1 month without proof of the bill. So we received $50 back of our "security" deposit. Everybody in the building(locals and staff) said we could have air conditioning and lights on for the whole month(which we didn't) and the bill should be a hundred at most. The Marina Sol Resort rental company is a scam artist. Don't get me wrong marina sol and its staff are great just be careful who you go through! Raul is a great concierge And the Oasis bar staff are great but i recommend Rick Lauman of Cabo Leisure for better rates and rooms at the same great location without getting ripped off!

3 friends and I stayed in 706A (Sunset Penthouse) for 6 nights in early December 2012 and had an amazing time. The penthouse is very spacious with everything you could ever need. The resort pool in fantasic with excellent priced breakfast and drink, and the staff are very friendly. The resort is only a block and a bit from the main beach, so the resort pool allows you time away from the beach sellers and crowds, but is close enough to get into the thick of things when you are ready for it. It is a similar distance to the marina so no complaints there. The price is hard to beat in such a great location too!
