Loved the hotel solamar!! what a perfect start to our honeymoon. Staff were helpful and friendly from the moment we arrived till the moment we left, this was our second stay at a Kimpton hotel and boy does this company know the meaning of great customer service.
We had a bottle of complimentary wine waiting for us with a welcome letter when we arrived, our room was big, the bed was unbelievable comfortable, we had a sitting area we never had chance to use, and the bathroom was big with a huge bath and amazing shower!!
Took advantage of the complimentary coffee every morning, wasn't an issue to head down first thing and take a couple of cups back to the room. We used the restaurant for breakfast which was ok and expensive (use the broken yolk just over the road) also had one of the best burgers I've ever had from the pool bar when we first arrived, out bartender was friendly and helpful offering of tips and recommendations for the area,
We loved San Diego as a place, just a block away is a cool bar which is about 50 stories up and overlooks the baseball stadium. Ate at the Spaghetti Factory which was great value and reasonable quality (3 courses for around $10) and also used the Rocking Baja which was great food (amazing tequila shrimp). We used the trolley tour to explore the San Diego area, well worth the money and there is a stop a block down from the hotel, and enjoyed walking down the front to the USS Midway and the Southport Sea Village (quaint little shopping area).
To summarise, a 5 star stay at the Solamar, the perfect start to a fantastic honeymoon, would return in a heartbeat.
