We arrived and were greeted with cocktails. The shuttle drivers, hotel check in staff and even the time share pitching folks were terrific. We were with 3- children in their 20's and had a penthouse suite right on the beach. The infinity pool staff were very good and we enjoyed several yummy margaritas, dirty monkey's and pina coladas poolside. Roberto, Jose and all of the pooside team were very friendly. Emmanual was very helpful sharing information about what to do and estimated costs -he is located where the taxi's pick up and drop off. I would search him out if you need any info or Jacob too. Actually, every time we left the resort we were always greeted like they knew us. Big plus was walking distance to marina, shopping and restaurants. This side of Cabo is where all of the whale watching boats and whales were. We saw lots everyday breeching and playing. We also saw sting rays "flying" out of the water several times. Sunset booze cruises pass by daily. The beach was private, no vendors selling anything so you could relax. You cannot swim on this side of the beach due to riptides, we suggest Medano beach for loud, fun beach bars and lots of vendors as well as parasailing, jet ski's and water taxi's to lovers beach. From the resort if you like to climb big rocks you can climb over to lovers/divorce beach -it is beautiful. We opted for a water taxi at the marina. Water taxi's were about $4-5 per person. It is best to go direct to the water taxi driver and negotiate so they don't have to pay the "coyote" as our water taxi called them. It was very quiet and all the acitivities were easy to negotiate with vs. the spring break season. Went to Cabo Wabo, over rated and the most expensive meal we ate $280 usd for 5 of us. In search of the real mexican food experience, we went to a great little cafe with only locals and even the policia at there with tostadas, tacos, burritios and orchetta all 5 of us ate for $40 usd. I would say on average we spend $150-200 per meal with drinks . The biggest surprise was good sushi! Typical price to town at airport to downtown/lands end is $80 usd and $60 usd on the return downtown to airport. Most everywhere took dollars or peso, so no need to exchange ahead of time. The shops and owners were very chatty and also shared lots of information of what to do if asked.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Grand Solmar is the new standard of luxury in Cabo San Lucas. Thoughtfulness and thoroughness are the trademarks of this grand resort. Every detail was considered right down to the intricate designs in the walkways, the stone entries to the rooms and the construction of subterranean passages so the busy staff does not interrupt relaxing guests. The award-winning design combines the grace of old world architecture with carefully crafted modern style. And the location will leave you speechless. A natural cliff forms the backdrop and guides guests to a lobby complete with a spectacular view of the mighty Pacific Ocean. From here, you can see pelicans soaring over golden sands and sailboats scooting across blue waves. Just feet away is the very tip of the Baja Peninsula in all its sun-drenched glory. ... more less
