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.


Overview

Great family vacation

We recently came back from vacation and enjoyed it a lot. My wife and I went with our 1 Year old son. The resort was kid friendly. The staff was very friendly. The Hotel, rooms, pools, dining areas were clean. Within the Hotel they had theater shows at night, during the day at the pool they had different activities to keep everyone engaged. Overall we were very happy.

Poor Quality Resort

This hotel has poor quality - the food, the premise, the music, the service, the elevators, the door locks, the pools... The one exception are the rooms which are clean, nothing special but acceptable.That said, if you are able to get a cheap rate to sleep over at night, and will be spending your time at the beach, eat at the restaurants on the strip, and explore Mayan Riviera I can see it workout. The question then is why are you no just getting an airbnb or if you want your family to have access to pool to stay at a no frills accommodation - cost effective places may not be all inclusive but can be solid - there are multiple grocery stores in the area.On our last day I took a picture of our sink (see pic), which symbolically summarized the stay at this place for me. The faucet was off-center from the sink, it works but like everything else at the resort has not been built with attention to detail nor cared for to maintain an acceptable quality.

Thank you for a great time. -Danielle Raymond

Great family vacation

GR Solaris is a great place for a family vacation! We were eight people including three children and stayed 6 days and everyone was very pleased. The kids had something to do everyday and so did we! Very relaxing atmosphere and the entertainment staff was amazing! I have to say everyone was super friendly and went out of there way to please every wish! They even had gifts for all the children at the resort! The food was great at all restaurants, buffet and pool snacks! There was even an incident at the beach and their organization and willpower resolved the problem with a very happy ending! We would definitely go back in a heart beat!

Manager Jose Navis does not care about your concerns

Wow, I told the manager that I was so disappointed about a few things that I was going to write a bad review and include his name, his response was, "go ahead". Wow. In all my years of travel I have never met a manager so non helpful and that didn't care! Seriously. Originally, we could not decide if we should stay here, or the Royal Solaris down the street. Your best bet is to go to the Royal Solaris or elsewhere. Our friends did and it's so much better. We visited them and saw first hand.Our biggest gripe was the fact that they advertise two fancy restaurants on site to be included in your stay, instead of their standard, mediocre buffet dinner. But they don't tell you that it's IMPOSSIBLE to get a reservation. You can't call to make a reservation. They don't let you. You can't go on line to make a reservation for dinner, doesn't work that way. The concierge won't help you with a reservation. You have to walk down there and then when you do, you can only go at 5 pm when they open up. Royal Solaris you could go at 9 am! So, you get out of the pool at 5 pm and head over there, but then when you walk down there, they say the only time available for reservations is 9:30 pm. Really? What?? For both restaurants. We walked down several times and got the same story. So we talked to the concierge and Manager Jose Navis and neither cared. We told him we spent a lot of money to come here for 5 days and we really wanted one nice dinner at dinner time, NOPE, didn't care. No interest in helping us.Their buffet is small and not as nice as the Royal Solaris too. Royal Solaris is so much nicer. Larger room, more of a selection. And when you arrive at the Royal Solaris, you are handed a fruity drink (very nice touch), not our hotel, we were handed hard pressure sales when we arrived. :( Our view and room were okay, but when we asked for additional drinks for our mini bar they said no. I even paid the cleaning guy $5 for a few extra drinks in his envelope and wrote a note for more drinks please (in spanish and english). Nope. He would not help us either. Not very accommodating here. And get this the pool bar closes at 5 pm. What??? We are on vacation. Not at the Royal Solaris, there is open later. For here you have to get out of the pool to the one bar and wait in a long line. Ridiculous!Their gift shop is a rip off too. My husband wanted a Cuban cigar, $16 dollars US. At Royal Solaris $10On line we thought this place looked better than the Royal Solaris (our second choice). Boy were we wrong. Our travel agent said we would not like this place. I did not believe her, but she was right. Go elsewhere my friends. Go to a place where they care about their vacationers. These guys are a one time "gotcha" kind of a place. :( Very disappointed, .
