If you are looking for an all inclusive like one of the big chains, this probably isn't for you. The service staff was excellent! They prepare everything fresh and that takes time. We loved the pool, we sat there all day, laughed, ordered drinks, sushi, and food from the restaurant and had a good ole time.
The restaurants and bar close early around 10ish.... so if you are looking for nightlife the center of everything is a quick ride or 10 minute walk. I've stayed in Cabo before and the last time I stayed at Dreams which was about a 20-30 minute van ride away from the action. So basically the location cannot be beat. You are in the heart of Cabo yet it feels like you are so far away from everything. It's a great little cove they are situated on.
Now the annoying part.... the front desk and timeshare lady, noise and tips :-(
I booked a One Bedroom suite and regret it. Everyone else I was with booked a standard room and they all got upgraded anyways. I normally would be very upset but considering I was traveling with a group of friends, I let it go and was happy for them (just felt like a sucker.....with $800.00 less in their pockets). So don't waste your money on upgrades.
After a long plane ride from NYC, I expected to be greeted with perhaps a cocktail and a smile but it was a haggling disaster at the front desk. They charged 60 dollars for WiFi and offered us a "free" drink at their sister resort which ended up costing us $300.00. The "free" drink is a house margarita or tap beer. No thank-you......
They advertise that there are multiple restaurants but there really is only one (and it's very good). You can make reservations at the other "associated" restaurants and they give you a 60% discount. That is not "all-inclusive".
The noise.... oh boy...... I am from NYC so I'm used to it. Anyone else would probably be very upset. Our room shook daily starting around 7:30am (so much for our first childless vacation) and didn't stop throughout the day. I was able to ignore the large red crane and jackhammer but the room shaking... not acceptable.
Being that Solmar recently converted to "all inclusive"... they really need to take time in learning what all-inclusive really is. We spent over $400.00 on tips in 5 days. They make you sign for everything and you always feel obligated to tip.
All in all... if you get a good deal I it's ok to stay here. Lot's of red tape and if you can block all that out and just focus on relaxing and the delcious food and drink... you will be ok.
