Our Opinion

A small yet great hotel. The resort has a very helpful team. The front staff do their best to ensure you have a quick and easy check-in. The rooms are comfortable and well-maintained. Make sure to request a room with a view, as some of the oceanview rooms are spectacular. There are lots of food options to choose from. There's entertainment provided every night, so there will always be plenty of things to do around the resort. Amazing location from the beach, and there is a wide stretch of sand for those who love long walks on the beach. The busy Cancun resort strip is right in front of the resort grounds as well. This is a great location for those wanting to be in the center of the action in Cancun.

Small and quaint resort

Rooms: the room had a great beach and pool view. The bed was extremely firm which we didn't like. Plenty of pillows. No problems with a/c, tv, or bathroom. Great room service. If you get a door in between rooms, you can hear EVERYTHING the neighbors say. I even heard their shower. We had to ask the neighbors once to quiet down (a room with 8 young girls) no idea where the parents were. We could hear their music and voices as if it was in our room. Food: the food was good. We enjoy the reservations at Marco Polo and Zai the best. Felix at MP was amazing! The breakfast was good but French toast was under cooked. Omelet station and pasta station was made to order. The snack bar outside also makes burgers, made to order and we found out our last full day. The deli was our favorite. Beach/pool: The beach was never crowded and we could always get chairs with an umbrella. The waves were huge when we went! Love it. Ended up with a small fish in my bathing suit and found out when I got undressed in my room. Pool was always crowded but fun atmosphere. Great pool bar. Music is from 10 am to 5 pm. Water aerobics was fun! Great activity staff. Also if you go to the VIP breakfast, they will try to sell you a membership. We didn't join because we don't plan to come to Mexico yearly and we have a membership, which they kept trying to buy off us. If you don't have a membership and want to come to Mexico yearly, I highly recommend it. Great benefits!! Not for us though. Different staff kept asking us throughout the week why not and to think about joining.

Jair is an excellent server....always filling, refilling and checking to see of there's anything more he can get for you. And always with that contagious smile he has. Thanks for brightening our days! We've enjoyed a fantastic stay here at G.R.Solaris!

First time at GR Solaris and a memorable experience!

Just returned from 5 filled days at the GR Solaris with my fiancée and had a wonderful time. We were in the 7th floor and had an ocean/pool view very spectacular. Great food at the café solaris. We ate at the Marco Polo for the Mediterranean and it was awesome. Grounds and beach area are very well kept. The service and staff there are awesome. Any time we requested anything (broken coffee maker and extra blankets) they were quick to take care of. Special shout out to our favorite bartender Hamilton who always made our favorite drinks in our Yeti mugs and the pools staff such as Freddie and Andrew who always kept us entertained! The staff there work very hard so please tip them whenever you can! We had fantastic weather and it was never crowded. In fact at 8AM there were still pool chairs under the umbrellas available. We talked to many people who had been there multiple times and said they liked this resort better than others. Having booked with Cheap Caribbean we didn't get pressured for the time shares at the resort. We even got to release baby sea turtles one night which was cool! The only negatives are the beach is very narrow and has a rather sharp drop off but it is still safe to swim. Also the Oriental restaurant (Zai) was not open the nights we were there (Tues through Thurs nights). Also make sure to keep you wrist bracelets because they require you to turn them in when you check out and we discarded ours the morning we left. They don't tell you that when you check in and they were going to charge us for them when we checked out but we spoke to the manager and they didn't charge us. Otherewise we had a great experience and would highly recommend it!

Awsome place for the third time

This was a third trip to the GR and still one of our most favorite places to stay in Cancun. The food was good and staff was very friendly as usual. Vermon was awesome with helping me surprise my wife with her birthday and our anniversary at one of the dinner/shows. Jair was another awesome staff member that has a great personality and works hard to please the guest. Johanna was another awesome staff member that kept the drinking coming to us around the pool and on the beach. The beach is nice and activities were fun that the entertainment staff provided. This is a great resort to stay at with some of the nicest people working there to help bring you back.

Great Hotel, great location, fabulous beach

We have just come back from a weeks stay here. We found the food to be of great standard especially the Marco Polo restaurant and also the deli made the most fantastic fresh sandwiches, biscuits etc, this was great if you wanted something different for a change. Also having room service included was a great bonus if you did not feel like going to the restaurant. A quick review of hotel areas below. RESTAURANTS - Staff were excellent, always attentive and making sure you had drinks etc. there was a huge variety of choice too. Although I found the restaurants to be spotlessly clean I feel that people should be made to use a sanitizer gel before entering to prevent the spread of germs , this was done at a previous hotel I stayed at and I do not think this is offensive but I think it prevents the spread of infections, but then I am OCD !!DELI - Really lovely sandwiches, polite staff and on tap coffees and drinks. Well done guys.HOUSEKEEPING - Rooms were spotless and I did not have to use my cleansing wipes here, air con was great and the free mini bar was a great bonus even though we only used the odd tin and bottles of water it was great to have there if needed. The housekeeping guys/ladies were courteous at all times and rooms were cleaned daily to a high standard. Only fault with the rooms were the amount of cushions that were on the bed!!! It looked lovely but took you ten minutes to get in bed each night LOL!!! BEACH - Beautiful, swept daily and fab warm clean sea.RECEPTION - Again Friendly Courteous guys that really tried hard to speak English because my Spanish was so bad. I did not like the way the concierge tried to get me to attend a presentation, he was not really interested in helping to assist but more interested in trying to get us to spend 90 minutes ++ out of our weeks holiday to go to a presentation. Now fortunately I am wise to this sort of thing and would not be dragged in but I did hear people agreeing to this ! so beware if you feel pressured just say no. Overall our stay was fantastic and I have not given 5 stars due to the fact of the above sales talk and also the fact that we had to pay about £80 for wifi for the week which I feel in this day and age is a bit of a rip off and should have been included in the price. This is definitely letting the place down. I have stayed at many hotels all round the world and wifi has always been included so maybe the hotel needs to look at this for their guests in the future.Enjoy!
