Karina is the best!

Staff was great. Karina at the pool and nightly entertainment was fantastic!Accommodations were average.Food was good (above average) and plentiful. Pool area was above average.Property is connected to its sister property. The GR Caribe is a quieter, family oriented property while the sister property seemed much more like the party atmosphere, so you have choices.Paddle boats and kayaks though--no. Lagoon smells like septic run off and there are warnings about the alligators.Overall--good experience, good time for a family vacation.

family vacation

first of all a big shout out to some of the staff members. Cecilia the cocktail waitress, Karina the pool side entertainer,Charlie ( Carlos) our waiter at the restaurant Bogavante and Jazmin the Caribe side waitress. amazing how they remembered all of our names, our favorite drinks and their friendliness despite their long hours and weeks.the food overall wasn't very impressive except at Bogavante, drinks were ok especially if you tipped. i probably wont be back because of the high pressure time share sales and a lot of confusion . one lobby member will say one thing and the next day the rules change.we had to pay double occupancy when one traveler in our group didn't show. the excursions were fun but overpriced. all inclusive does not mean ALL. transportation to anywhere is extra and some of the bars and restaurants are only catered to time share holders.appearance was very inviting, clean and well taken care of.the beach was clean and perfect, lots of fun. non stop pool side entertainment.the lobby bar had this amazing trumpet player named Issac Barrera a few times a night , we enjoyed during happy hour.

Beautiful beach, great staff but below average food and activities.

The hotel was clean and the staff were extremely nice and accommodating. Omar was our cleaning guy and he was extremely nice. He always lefr us a nice surprise so we left him something nice when we left. The buffet style lunch wasn't the best. We found that the best food was through room service which was 24/7. So that's what we had for breakfast every morning. For lunch, try the restaurant right on the best. It's really good. For dinner, eat at Vente. They serve the best food although the portion is extremely small. The hotel activities weren't the best so we planned our own outside the resort which was great. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

Family vacation

Pros: excellent customer service; great beach (although a little smaller than I expected); good food; plenty of water provided in the room (this is a big deal in Cancún); very clean resort!Cons: rooms really need updating; rooms were too small; “ocean view” was through a very tiny window; beds were not comfortable; very tiny food portions at the sit down restaurantsThis resort is definitely nicer than the sister resort next door, but with the kids we enjoyed being able to hop back and forth. There were a lot of excellent kids amenities that we enjoyed using. All of the staff were very friendly and really appreciated that we spoke Spanish. The staff at the GR pool were especially fantastic, especially the waitresses poolside. Also, the food at the GR pool is so much better. The hamburgers are INCREDIBLE!!

Best Vacation!

A big thank you to GR Caribe by Solaris Deluxe for such great time we had in Mexico end of December - Janurary this year. The resort amenaties and services are very good, food is great, staff members are amazing! We loved how cozy and clean this hotel is. Never felt over crowded. Lots of things to do as you can visit the adjecent resort Royal Solaris. Great beach! If you love waves, this is the place to be. You can get a boogie board from Royal Solaris entertainment area and enjoy the waves even more. Sun is so bright, sea is salty, bring shaded swimming googles to enjoy your time in the water to the fullest :) Tours are awesome. Highly recomend #1 Xel-ha park in Tulum, just amazing, food included!! Chichen Itza was worth it too! Wet-Wild part near by in Cancun was great, food included (TIP: best to get tickets online and get your hotel to print them for you. You will save quite a bit, especially on the Dolphin swim and photo packages at that park!)Room Tips: We had to change room due to noise, but staff were very accomodating and our final room was perfect! I would recomend ocean view rooms as they tend to be further away from the core building hallways where what looks to be ice making machines or electrical equipment is (main floor by the tenis court - found it quite noisy at night, not so noticable during the day). Some rooms have a door in between to make it a bigger family room (for extra cost). Cons is that the door lets noise in and you can hear people in the next room. Ask for room without that door if you only need one room. BIGGEST thank you to awesome crew at the bar by the pool: specifucally to Rosa Linda (Rosa), Veronica, Armando, Mibsam, Jason - you guys have been so attentive, kind, fun, hard working. Made us fall in love with the people of Mexico! Rosa, coconut milk slushy that you recommended was the best (not too sweet and delicious), thank you!Big thank you for delicious lunches to the kitchen staff by the pool. These ladies make yummy food with lots of healty choices. Cris (GR Caribe restaurant/cafe hostess) and Joel (buffet server at Royal Solaris): you stand out for you hard work and hospitality. Thank you!Carina and Frida from entertainment - you girls are so much fun. Kids absolutely loved all fun stuff you put together every day as well as daily excersize classes! We loved the resort. What a nice family friendly place in Cancun!
