“Best place in Cabo San Lucas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

My family and I stayed at the Marina Sol for 11 nights in March. We booked with Clint Suveges staying in his magnificent penthouse. It was a perfect condo for the 5 of us with everything that we needed. It really was a home away from home. This was my wife and 3 kids first time in Cabo and staying at the Marina Sol, I have stayed at the Marina Sol over 10 other times in the past 14 years. It really is the best location in Cabo to stay. With just a quick couple minute walk up the road you are at the best beach which is Medano and you are just minutes away from all the action downtown Cabo San Lucas has to offer. You get the best of both worlds at the Marina Sol, with all the units being condos you have the option of buying food and cooking up breakfast, lunch, and dinners if you are watching your dollars. Marina Sol has a great little restaurant that is very reasonable in cost and really great food. There is an onsite store that you can pick up little things you might need such as drinks, snacks, and other items. The heated pool is amazing with lots of chairs and plenty of room. Marina Sol has 24 hour security and they staff are truly amazing. Cabo is an amazing place to visit and the Marina Sol is a perfect place stay.

We stayed a week at the Marina Sol April 16-23. We rented the 5 bedroom 6 bath penthouse. It was just perfect for all of us and plenty of room and privacy. The location is 2 min walk to beach and the service at the resort was amazing. All of us agreed we would return to this resort anytime in the future. Clint referred us to a private cook that came in and prepared a meal for us, "Mucho Gracias", they did an incredible job! Good to be home but this holiday was so amazing!

This is NOT a hotel, but a condo development owned by individuals. So, what you see on their website is not necessarily what you will get. We booked well in advance with Expedia because I had a refund coupon from a previous bad experience in Orlando, FL. We arrived late, and the jolly concierge met us and gave us the key for the room, allowing us to check in the next morning. Our room was a disaster: the bedroom upstairs had a structural beam directly overhead to the bed with about 5 feet to the floor (meaning you had to duck your head every time you crossed the room). The bathroom was cheaply built with threadbare towels, no soap, and door hardware that my wife immediately cut her finger open on. The 'view' was over a lot/parking structure, where a marching band practiced from 8 in the morning on. For $150 a night, this was a real rip-off. We complained bitterly the next morning, and finally were told to report to the condo assoc secretary who would assist us...except the next day turned out to be her day off:-((. Finally with some help from Expedia, we were moved to a beautiful two bedroom condo overlooking the pool for the last two days of our 4 day visit. So be careful here as the units are very different in type, location and furnishings. I would never book again without seeing the specific unit online first.

We had a wonderful three week vacation at Marina Sol. Rented a two bedroom unit through Claire Griffths of Cabo Caliente. It was beautfiully decorated and clean. Having a water filter and laundry at the condo was a plus. The pool was quiet and heated. The best thing about Marina Sol is the location. Within walking distance to the beach, marina, mall, restaurants and nightlife.

Cabo Caliente's staff are helpful, pleasant and available. Claire picked us up and dropped us off at the airport with a stop for groceries.

Walmart is a $8.00 cab ride and has a good supermarket selection. Gardenia's located in front of Marina Sol has a great tortilla soup. Other restaurants to try are Maro's Shrimp House and Salvatore's.

The whale watching was fantastic at the end of February.

I would definitely return to Marina Sol.

Marina Sol has a strict no noise policy after 11pm and has a lot of retirees.

Be aware that some units we visited were not upgraded and others have excess noise at night due to the street or neighbouring hotels/restaurants.

Our group of 10 adults ( 5 couples ) rented the Ultimate Penthouse from Clint Suveges who also has the Real Estate Sales office located in the lobby of the REsort. Our Penthouse had 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms and was huge and well set up. The Resort is a hidden gem as its a 2 minute walk to Medano beach but the rate worked out to only $100 per couple and we all had our own bedrooms and bathrooms. Clint also arranged for Jose Luis who is a private chef to come in one night and he prepared us a great Mexican meal and entertained us all at the bar afterwards. WE also found the employees of the REsort to all be very friendly and welcoming and some of the owners who live there were also very helpful with sharing their local knowledge of the area. If you want to stay in a nice furnished condo as apposed to a small hotel room then definitly check out Marina Sol Resort , you will be glad that you did.

Room Tip: ask to see photos or a video of the room you are renting and make sure that whoever you rent from ha...

Finally getting to this review! I stayed in the Marina Sol Resort for my bachelor party in July and had an excellent time. Our requirements: close to the beach, close to downtown and could hold 8 guys. We rented the 4BR Penthouse condo from Clint for 4 nights. We arranged for airport transportation with Marina Sol and our driver was waiting for with cold beers when we landed. We even made a Costco run on the way. Clint met us the when we got there, gave us the tour and answered all of our Cabo questions. The 4BR condo was great! TV with satellite and ipod hookups, huge balcony, plenty of bathrooms, good beds. The hotel grounds are really nice. The pool is pretty quiet (if you want a crazy pool scene, the Me Cabo is just 2 blocks away!); but we’d relax in the pool and drink beers that we brought down from the room.

Location, location, location. They say how they’re a few blocks away from the beach and they are. Walk out a side gate turn once and walk a block and bam! At the beach right in the heart of the action. We took 1 cab and that was to get to a dock on the other side of the marina. All the other times we just walked downtown; you’re minutes from the main streets. A lot of money saved!

One con is the water is not filtered. Buy some at the markets.

Some negative reviews are how it is so quiet and they’re not tolerant on noise. We were 8 guys playing music in the day, drinking beers, hanging out at the pool and having a fun time. Granted we’re not 20 years old and on spring break, but we never had any issues. All the other owners that we met were super friendly and enjoyed talking Cabo with us. When we wanted a crazier scene: Me Cabo for the pool, Medano Beach for the sun and sand, and downtown for all the fun that comes with that… all just a short walk away!

That’s about it. I’d stay there again for sure. Clint was so helpful! Oh yea, Raul at the front desk gave us many many laughs. He rocks.
