This is about the 8th time we stay at this resort and it only gets better every time. Resort has made several significant improvements since are last visit, especially in the reception area. Much more accommodating and appealing. Although most of the staff are great, a special recognition goes out to Frank, Susana, Jose Luis, Gerardo and Moises, these guys go out of their way to provide you with excellent service. Always very attentive and social. Already planning our next trip next year.
Update: this place tries to extort you when you lose items at the Resort. Conveniently, the employees cannot find the items while you are at Solmar. (Despite repeated attempts to locate the items.) After you leave the resort, they will tell you that they have found your items, and ask you to pay about $70 to ship them back to you. The guest paying shipping is not a normal policy at resorts - especially when the employees make no effort to locate your items when you are staying at the hotel. Original review:We stayed for eight days with all inclusive package at Solmar. It exceeded my expectations on the all inclusive front. The food was better than I was expecting and the drinks were pretty good. Pro tip: carry cash for tips because that is what the staff prefers (despite gratuity being included in the bill - this might just be the way of all inclusive resorts).The rooms are big, clean, and outdated but for the price, we didn't mind. The pools are nice, however, the bar pool gets kinda gross throughout the day. My Kate Spade flip flops did vanish when they were left by the pool. So make of that what you will (it is my fault in part for leaving nice shoes by the pool). [See my updated note above.]Despite Solmar being an ocean front property, swimming in the ocean is not allowed. You can walk along the water and hear waves crashing from your room. The location is close to the marina and town so you have access to other activities outside the resort. Alan and his staff put on fun events at night to keep guests entertained.
Stayed at Solmar with an all-inclusive package for 6 nights. The all-inclusive is recommended, otherwise they have ridiculous prices for food/drinks. The room was clean, spacious, and housekeeping staff were excellent at cleaning daily. The food from the Tejaban restaurant was well prepared and seemed to be good quality. Waitstaff and hostess were all friendly, attentive, and accomodating. All drinks from the bar were weak and sugary. After the first day I started ordering extra side shots of liquor to pour into the mixed drinks I ordered and balance them out. Avoid the swimming pool. There was foamy scum and debris floating in it by the afternoon and evening. Also, it was very warm. You can take a free shuttle to the Playa Grande Hotel which has multiple very large, clean pools and an overall more pleasing and entertaining atmosphere with activities and games. You don't however receive free drinks there with your Solmar all inclusive. The worst part was the Grand Solmar resort next door, the main reason I would not come back to Solmar. The timeshare people constantly pressure you while walking around the entrance to take their tour/presentation. Our "tour" consisted of mediocre breakfast, an older American man who insulted Mexican laborers several times, and other multiple pushy salesman. Don't come here to spend time on the beach, the Pacific is too rough for swimming and the resorts do everything they can to try to keep you off the beach.
I have stayed at Solmar for my annual Dia de Los Muertos/Scuba Diving trips with a buddy of mine and we have had a great experience each time! Love the staff. They are professional and helpful and very friendly. I travel to a lot of conferences and go to the big resort hotels with all the extras. I prefer places like Solmar. Solmar is more quaint, laid back, easy, and perfect for my tastes. I hiked over the rocks to Lover's beach and that was one of the most beautiful little hikes that I have ever taken. I enjoyed the restaurant and pool. Can't wait to go back!
We loved the location of the resort, the food, the friendly and helpful staff, the pool and pool bar. What better way to spend 10 days but by relaxing by the pool and listening to the ocean waves! We are already planning our next trip to Cabo San Lucas and will definitely book our stay at the Solmar Resort.
