“Exceeded expectations!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

The all inclusive meals and drinks were fabulous!!! The restaurant manager and the servers were so attentive and great. The food was the most surprising, what a great value for all inclusive!!! Also, having access to Playa Grande was a great thing. Their pool is amazing! Great drinks for all inclusive also, and the sushi, pretty fabulous!!! Couldn't believe it!! Solmar was way better than I thought!!

We spent a fabulous week at the Solmar. At check in Carmen Angel, was very efficient and sweet. All of the staff were incredibly friendly, polite and helpful. The unit was a one bedroom suite, poolside with a partial ocean view. It was a lot of room for two people, with a kitchenette and two baths! It was well appointed and very clean.the grounds were beautiful and well kept. One of the better things about Solmar is that it was a small resort with all the amenities minus the crowds. I must give a shout out to Placido Mendoza and Herebierto at the cafe, as well as Patty Winkler - social director, Adrian Ciuccno, Consalvo and all the wonderful wait staff. They made our vacation truly wonderful, and we will certainly recommend the resort to anyone we know heading to Cabo,,,, Michael and Janice Shaughnessy - Boston, Mass

We had one of the best vacations ever in Cabo at the Solmar resort and Beach Club. I read many reviews of this property before deciding to choose it. We were not disappointed!!!! Our room was great ,Jr Suite, It was very clean and I guess the only negative we could find was there was no TV in the living room but who goes to Cobo to watch TV!!!!!! We had great food and great service thanks to Salvador, Raul and Jose at the restaurant. At the pool we were served by Vicente and Adrian most days and they were great. And what can I say about Jose who was at the Top bar and the pool bar!!!! Needless to say we had a great time!!!!! A special shout out to Annabell for a massage to die for...great hands.The location is great too because you can walk to the Marina and walk on the beach. Loved Cabo!!!

Room Tip: There is construction going on so be aware of that

Great location but with some details. Internet is expensive, should be free. Beds in good conditions, but way to tall, food not great. Service very good though, all very courteous and in all great service. The jacuzzi was not working properly and was not fixed in the five days of my stay.
I think it is better not to have all inclusive, as food is good but not great, and there is a great offer of good restaurants in the area. Two more hotels in the same property but restaurants in the other resorts are not included in all inclusive! There is a servibar with a couple of soft drinks, water and beer, but only for the firt day. I dont understand these in an all inclusive!

Room Tip: Some rooms with ocean view, try to get one of those.

Dear customer from Mexico, City;
Thank you very much for taking the time to post a review of your recent stay. We have attended your maintenance report. Regarding the “all inclusive” package certainly it is valid only in our resort and as special promotion we made arrangements to include Puerto San Lucas Restaurant (out side restaurant) on this package by covering a reservation fee. By other side we are glad to know you have enjoyed the hotel location and the service from our personnel. Thank you once again for sharing your thoughts with us as it helps us to convert our weakness into strength.
We look forward to welcoming you again soon.
Cordially,

My husband and I just got back from our trip to Cabo, and our stay at Solmar was great! Upon arrival we were upgraded to a 1 bedroom suite, we were given a welcome bottle of champagne and some chocolate covered strawberries, and everyone we encountered was so nice and helpful! Our first (and second) night we ate at the snack bar, and the food was fantastic (almost surprisingly so)!! The main hotel restaurant had great breakfasts, but I found that the dinner menu was lacking a little (especially in traditional Mexican cuisine....definitely surprised at this!) The pool bar was really great, food was good, and the drinks were excellent. I give full props to all the staff who would be ready with a new drink for us before our current ones were empty (we were on the all-inclusive package.) Housecleaning was perfect, front desk staff was very helpful.....my only qualm really was that you should offer free wifi - so many (most) hotels are doing this these days, and I always get annoyed when I'm asked to pay for wifi. Overall, a fantastic experience - we even toured the associated hotels (Playa Grande and Grande Solmar) and preferred our own as a more laid back and less ridiculous resort (not that there was anything wrong with the others, I just felt they were too much for what we were looking for). Lots of people complained about the construction noise, but we honestly couldn't hear it when we had the AC on, and we weren't all that far away from it....I think some people just complain too much!

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.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 2221 which was nice and clean however it was noisy. Ask for a room to the right o...

We rate our stay as excellent. We booked our stay using the Orbitz app on our Ipad which had lower prices that the regular site. We loved the all inclusive package. The food and drink was excellent and the service was fast and friendly. We commend Tomas, the manager at Tejaban, and all of the staff including Julio Ceasar, Daniel, Samuel, Jose, Salvador, and others whose names I don't remember. All were very friendly and helpful. Even though a 10% gratuity is included in the package, we added some additional amounts when we were provided with excellent service, which was most of the time. We really enjoyed the Mexican Fiesta evening where the food and entertainment were outstanding. We stayed in room 2262 in building G and we we very satisfied with the comfort of the bed, the nice TV and the outstanding view from the balcony. We appreciate Zusanna's efforts in taking care of our room and creating the amazing towel art. We spent most of our time in and around the pools and down by the ocean. The 80 degree days made for a very pleasant vacation from our cold Oregon weather. Every morning and evening we would walk along the beach. We also climbed over the rocks to experience divorce and lovers beaches. We did walk down to the marina and over to Medano Beach several times and we were very happy to get back to the peace and quiet of Solmar. We enjoyed a sunset cruise and a fishing trip on the Mucho Loco II where I caught a nice Marlin. We did attend a timeshare presentation which allowed us to tour The Grand Solmar. The presentation took about 3 hours, however, we did not feel pressured to buy. The Grand Solmar is an outstanding luxury resort at over twice the price of the Solmar Beach Club. We prefer the value and experience of the Solmar Beach Club. The periodic construction noise did not bother us. We just moved down by the pools or the ocean and enjoyed the sound of crashing waves. The grounds and pools are very well maintained. In conclusion, our trip to Cabo and stay at the Solmar Resort and Beach Club was very memorable and we plan to return.

Room Tip: Second floor or higher rooms provide an excellent view of the ocean. We enjoyed watching whales and...
