“An average all inclusive”
Reviewed 7 May 2006

This is a pretty typical Mexican all inclusive resort. Rooms are okay, not outstanding. The makeup mirror in the bathroom is in an odd place and when extended could be a hazard, as well as closet doors being left open. Specialty restaurants are a complete waste of time, as main dishes are really low quality. Cheeseburgers and guacamole by the pool are fine though. Daily activities are fun and interactive. The beach is not swimmable. Black flags everywhere during our stay. It is a long distance from Cabo San Lucas so if you're looking to do a lot of partying there, look for another resort. Drinks are fine, not too watered down. They only serve Sol beer. No Coca Cola either, only Pepsi products. The hospitality room is fine, but I had to return to the front desk 3 times to get a key that actually worked for our locker. Breakfast room service is about the only meal I would recommend. Lunch and dinner are very limited. Be very careful at the airport as time share reps are really pushy and will stoop to anything to distract you, including telling you that they can check you in early at your hotel and give you your all inclusive bracelet, to actually calling your room and pretending to represent a tour company that wants to meet you in the lobby for a special meeting. Make an effort to communicate with locals in Spanish if you can, you will get much better service.

We have stayed at this resort for one week every April for the last three years. It is great for the whole family. Our boys were 16 and 17 this year and they said this was the best week so far, and that's what they said the other 2 years. We all enjoy the pool, the swim up bar (though we mostly have virgin drinks), the ocean, beach and pool volleyball, walks on the beach, the restaurants, the nice rooms and balcony's, the friendly staff and entertainment group, the tennis court (only one, Astro turf and sand, but it actually plays really well and is easy on the legs), the basketball court, the fitness center, the nightly shows and the all inclusive format. Off the resort we enjoy surfing, boogeyboarding, ATVs, kayaking, sorkeling, diving, wave runners, parasailing, diving, golf, hiking, shopping and bargaining. On the resort the kids have the run of the place and really enjoy interacting with the resorts entertainment staff and meeting other kids. This gives us a chance to relax and do our own thing, while still touching base with the kids through out the day. Other people have said that the younger childrens program is very good too. If you are an active family that loves to keep busy and have fun, this is definitely a great place to vacation.

Hotel was great.. I have stayed at 4-5 star all inclusives in Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, Riveria Maya, Jamaica, and the Dominican.

This hotel compared quite well.. We had our 10 year old son with us and the staff treated him and all the kids great.. Lots of activities, trivia, volleyball, soccer, waterslides etc Jeff or Jefferson was a staff guy that went out of his way.. Tell him Liam (our 10 yr old) says hello.
The food is varied each day at the buffets.. Snack bar always had good burgers, pizza, chicken nuggets, nachos guacamole.
We had lobster at the Italian themed restaraunt. Breakfast were great.. Leave you waiter a couple of bucks and keep sitting in his area each morning and thet will go out of their way to take care of you.
Pool was great.. drinks plentiful.. Pool bar had Tecate and El sol beer.. El Sol was poured from a bottle into a cup( bring your own and they will fill it regardless of size) Tecate was on tap...They also had a little darker beer called Indio..
Beach was beautiful,, water rough, take cheap snorkeling trip for ocean swim

My wife and I visited the Royal Solaris the end of March and had a wonderful time. This was our fourth time to this resort and it only gets better every time. From check in to check out we had the most relaxing vacation ever. The beautiful weather was just icing on the cake.
You do need to get up early to secure the spot you want by the pool. You will have no problem if you do this by 8:00 am. We ended up two mornings pulling some chairs right to the waters edge for the day. That was actually more relaxing than hanging by the pool. Breakfasts are amazing with the omelettes, waffles, pancakes and fresh fruit. Lunch provides many choices whether you eat at the pool side grill or the Rosmarinus buffet. We really enjoyed the Marco Polo pastas and also ate at Pancho's twice. The two buffets we enjoyed were the Mexican Fiesta night (highly recommended) and the Caribbean Buffet (lobster dinner). The resort offers a $10 round trip shuttle into town four times per day. This is a cheap alternative to taking a taxi.
The service at this resort is second to none. Everyone will go out of their way to help you with whatever you need. They also have a sports and entertainment team that provides pool side activities during the day and special themed shows at night. The kids club looks amazing with the special kids pool and water slide. Everytime we walked by there were plenty of kids having a wonderful time. This also gives Mom and Dad some relaxing time of their own.
Remember when reading these reviews is that everybody has their own opinion. How can one family have the best vacation of their lives, while the next family had the worst vacation ever......when they stayed during the same week?????????? Go with a mindset that you are going to have a great time and I promise you will. If you would like additional photos please email me.

when we first got to the hotel and went to dinner it was sick. it was a pretty bad start to our mexico vacation. the next couple days were pretty good but some of the workers were annoying. they always asked where we where going and why we were leaving. the only good things about our trip were all the activites and swimming. the shows were entertaning and the entertanment team worked hard. I would never go to the royal solaris again.

Having been to various all-inclusives throughout the Caribbean and Mexico I found this resort to be very average, great place for the price! If you have already booked it, don't worry you will enjoy yourself! If you have not and are looking for a wild time in Cabo this is not the place!
They are building a new hotel next door and the view we had was less than desirable, although we only spent minimal time in our room and therefore this didn't really bother us. The food was good, you need to be creative and utilize all options i.e. go to both the buffet and snack bar to find something for lunch, I enjoyed many grilled chicken salads. Breakfast was great, and I recommend dinner at the restaurants, just call each morning to make a reservation.
They allow you to get as many towels as you like (7am), the problem with this is that people get many towels and "save" themselves many seats, beach seats, pool seats, etc... two people may have 8 seats throughout the resort, as a result after 8am all seats are "taken"-often only by a towel for hours! Get up early -7am, save your seats, go back to bed. The pool was big and clean. You can walk the beach for miles, but swimming isn't as easy. We found the big waves to be fun, others seemed to disagree. Rough water but very swimmable!
The one element that was lacking was evening entertainment. We are used to evening shows, karaoke, a disco etc. in open air pavilions. They had a show, but inside in a theatre and it wasn't very good. The entertainment staff was great- daytime volleyball, pool games, etc. Yet the nightlife was lacking, aside from live music in the inside lobby pretty much non existent. We did do a pub crawl in cabo san lucas through the resort one night and I would recommend this! The option to go in town is always there, but it is 30 minutes away! Overall we had a great time, beach all day, pool in the afternoon with cocktails from the pool bar, dinner, lobby bar for a bit and bed. I would not go back due to the lack of outside pavilions, and evening entertainment. Although the beach and resort were beautiful.

WOW! Amazing resort. Not sure what all the negative feedback is all about. Here's what we (11 of us; 6 adults, 5 children) would like to say:

1) POOL ~ get up early to get your towel on your chair and umbrella. Erica, bartendar, was excellent...drinks plentiful. Food was great!! If you bring or get a larger cup..they will fill!!

2) RESTAURANTS ~ Buffet for breakfast...AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME!! Actually the buffet for all meals were great. Pancho (Mexican) and Marco Polo (Italian) were horrible; not the best food or service. Don't listen to the dress codes...they do not enforce. We ate all the food (eggs, etc.) and no one got sick. Loved the hamburgers and onion rings around the pool. The kids LOVED the ice cream and fruit in the cocounut shells! We had the BEST steak at the buffet....very juicy and tender.

3) PRESENTATION (Timeshare) ~ 90 mins..they are good, but once you say you are not interested...that's that. No pressure at all.

4) TRANSPORTATION ~ We asked one of the taxi guys (Miguel, awesome) for a private driver to Las Paz, Todos Santos and San Lucas....$30 per hour for 11 of us. Great experience. Take the local bus ($1 for 2); taxi is a bit high.

5) ACTIVITIES ~ The guys did ATVg and LOVED it. They let you do what you want to do and have fun. We all did the horseback riding on the beach and it was amazing; worth doing.

6) ACCOMMODATIONS ~ Rooms were small, but good sleeping since that's all you really do in a room. Lights could be a bit brighter and not much drawer space. The maids leave great towel designs on your bed; kids loved it. Water pressure and tempurature were fine and refreshing.

7) ENTERTAINMENT ~ around the pool was fun but loud and could be annoying after awhile. The kids club was great and our kids didn't want to leave; make sure you bring a towel for the kids. We saw the Latin show and it was very entertaining and action packed. The Carribbean night was great and the lobster was WOW!

8) SHOPPING ~ if you love silver and stones....there's plenty! The resort shop has amazing pieces and my hubby bought me a beautiful necklace (turqoiuse) and earrings ($132.00)

Well, I believe that's enough. If you would like to email me about the resort or anything about Los Cabos...please email me! I could email photos as well.

All in all.....Royal Solaris was great and we all would definately return! Before we left, I read all the message boards and all the negative writings.....read them, process them and remember 1/4....its all in what you make it and what you enjoy.
