- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Don't expect many options. Two restaurants on property - both outdoors. The flies partake of the meals. The staff is friendly but not consistently attentive. The all inclusive option was best choice. Very pricey otherwise. I wouldn't recommend it. This area is very touristy and Americanized. As far as beaches go beautiful but I prefer the Caribbean- better value.
We are owners at Solmar and have been for a number of years so obviously enjoy it. We have however noticed some changes throughout the years we have been coming that basically revolve around the pool area, attitude of some wait staff and prices. The first day were here we ordered 1 margarita and a short time later were asked to sign the bill. My husband left a tip in pesos amounting to $1.50 While not a large tip we just got there and had planned on having more to drink and eat. Normally my husband tips 15-18% even more if the service is good. What this waiter did was bring a drink and ask to sign. No smile nothing.... At that time we had no idea that 1 drink was almost $25 USD ill talk about that later...so after signing and handing it back the waiter asked if we were aware the # of pesos for the tip were *ONLY * $1.50 USD? Yes, this is what the waiter asked us...Yes my husband said, and he received a dirty look...The next day we were here after a few hrs of swimming again in the none adult only infinity pool with a swim up bar we met 2 couples. Both had just bought into solmar as owners. We had started with a few drinks and tipping larger so we wouldn't get the stink eye or made to feel guilty and hopefully better service. One couple who was visiting with us ordered 2 dirty monkeys and after signing the tab told us the drinks were almost $50 USD total! We had no idea they were so much and realized that's close to all the drink prices. I had a shot of top shelf taquilia and it was $18 USD. After a bit one of the couples were asked not to bring their own adult beverages down to the pool. There were 6 of us who met that night all hanging out and visiting. We had also brought some down and the other couple had a beer they brought down but we were not asked to not bring water or liquor down. We all did this only after earlier ordering 2 drinks again close to $25 USD each! We were all shocked. All the drinks any of brought down were in a sealed plastic container. We were all not advertising we had our own and I'm not aware there are rules stating this. I have seen many other since drinking their own beverages, We also had bottled water. This one couple was the only one who was told they could not bring their own alcohol to the pool area. When she was told that, this new owner asked nicely "how about water" ? And she was told no water either! I was very suprised by this because they had just bought as owners that day before and I felt it was such a bad introduction into solmar vacation "rules" especially because maybe not everyone can afford $25 for a drink a piece at the pool area. The prices of drinks or food are not listed on menu either. That next day we ordered 1 margarita and onion rings and the bill was almost $50 USD again! We were asked to sign. Every time you sign you are expected to give a nice tip to a unfriendly waiter who does not smile and simply takes your order and brings your food, nothing fancy. I asked if we could just sign before we left the pool figuring it would be easier and possibly not a huge $50 in tips and he said at the end of every hr you need to close the tab. He never waited an hr, after each order he asked us to sign. I started to wonder if it was just us he was annoyed with. I would swim up and wait a long time for him to wait on me, my husband had a question and waited so long he just swam away... If we needed something we needed to wave the menu vigorously to get his attention. He never smiled and acted like he was doing us a huge favor when ever he did anything for us. I actually started watching him and saw he was like this to everyone, even the pretty women in 2 piece which told me he must hate his job. I have worked in the service industry many years and feel when you are in job such as his, you should smile at the very least, not guilt customers into tipping more and at least waiting for the hr to have you sign your tab. This constant signing did get the tips pretty high. This basically is my only complaint so far, it's day 6 of vacation here and 3 time eating/drinking and I'm guessing our room tab is close to $400 at this rate the all inclusive $135 USD (all you can eat and drink) per person per day for a minimum of 3 days ($760) might not be so inflated!
My boyfriend and I have gone twice to this resort and planning another trip! It's awesome. Only downside is you can't get into the water since it's on the rough side of the ocean, but it's a quick 10 min walk to the marina/beaches. The food is average, but the drinks are great! Octavio at the poolside bar is the best!
Very nice property and grounds rooms are dated though and need an upgrade. 15.00 a day wifi is a rip off but the check in was easy and the staff was great and very helpful also the Grand Solmar next door was beautiful I would consider staying there the next time
This was a great place with the best of the best people on staff. The pool area was very specialand provided a peaceful,calming effect after a long day .The office staff was helpful caring and helped solve our problems with a disrupted travel schedule.
