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.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • vacation125 : Pittsburgh
Very nice resort but not a 5 golden apple as advertised

Just came back from a 5 day trip on 12/1/16 at the GR my wife and myself have been to Cancun/Riviera Maya approx 18 times so we have stayed at numerous resorts but first for Solaris. Overall the resort is very nice, beautiful oceanviews and beach, the staff is great and hotel is very clean. The food was mediocre at the buffet except for breakfast it was great, didn't get to eat in Marco Polo was always booked or seating was very late. The drinks are the typical all-inclusive quality, entertainment was pretty good we did not see the MJackson show. We had a OV on the 8th floor beautiful view, on 11/30/16 the hotel had no water mainline issue to hotel it was out for hours but the hotel and workers didn't lose a beat on the operation such as food and drinks, water came back on early evening. I would go back to the GR for the right price, my review is pretty consistent with some of the other reviews I have read. If you are getting a good price just go won't be disappointed. We used Avatays private shuttle service and was very reasonable, on time and 2 great drivers Roberto and Armondo shuttle price was a total of $35 from airport to resort for 6 persons I will use them again!

Not quite as 4 star as I expected...

We stayed for 5 days. Upon arrival the first day they said the room I had booked (single king ocean view) was not available that day but we could be moved the next day and were given 2 queen beds with an ocean view. After being there several days we met several others that were in the same predicament. We also met some folks that were offered a king upgrade for $45 a night. My guess would be they were making money off us folks that werent actually in our king rooms by selling them off for upgrades. Staff: There were only a few staff members that were pleasant and engaging with guests. Most of them were part of the entertainment staff. It also seems as if they dont have enough staff working the bars and wait service for the pools/beach areas. Wait for drinks was quite long at times. Food/Drink: The food was very Americanized for the most part and really didnt sell me. The best food actually seemed to be the late night room service options. The best restaurant was Rosmarinos. The drinks were about 50/50 on taste. Some were too strong and some didnt seem to be strong enough. Best drinks were at the lobby bar. Day 4 dilemma: Woke up to find no water working in the whole hotel. Front desk claimed water break. We left for the day on an excursion because they said it would be fixed within a few hours. We came back approx 6.5hrs later to find that there was running water but it was scalding hot! I went to the front desk to raise question (along with several others) and the best they could do was comp me $65 back worth of charges from the week.All in all our trip was a good time but only due to the people we met and hung out with. I wont be recommending this hotel for anyone.

Amazing

Absolutely amazing. look for Hernandez the pool side bartender he is great at his job. He is super friendly and will make sure you are taken care of. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating. Originally I requested an early check in with a king size bed ocean view room. When I arrived the room wasn't ready and I did not receive a king size bed. I spoke with management and everything was resolved within minutes. The hotel is clean and the food wasn't bad compared to other all inclusive resorts I've stayed at. The omelet breakfast was very good and the fajitas were super tasty. I have not one complaint with this hotel. By the way I am an extremely picky New Yorker and I look forward to staying here again.

Never again

After 10 years of loyal patronage they gave 2 girls king bed with a horrible view. We explained that the other 6 girls had ocean view. On the second day we tried again for better room and again were denied.the front desk personnel were very scripted and uncaring. This will be our last stay at GR Solaris. There are too many nice places to stay in Cancun.

never again

After choosing the resort 9 out of 10 years, this has been the worst! 2 in our party could not get a decent room, even after repeated request. All that was requested was two double beds that did not look at the next door hotel. Everyone else in the party received ocean view, two double beds. After 9 years, we couldn't even be put on the same floor! We booked these reservations 9 months in advance! I'm sorry, but I think this is inexcusable even for a mediocre resort. I hope they can absorb the over $8000+ dollars they will lose from us from now on.
