“Beautiful Beach, lovely stay.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

We had a very nice time at the Royal Solaris. Loved watching the big waves at the beach, and the fish jumping! The grounds were well maintained and very clean! I was celebrating a belated milestone birthday and I mentioned, when I booked the trip, that it would be wonderful if they could upgrade us to a partial ocean view, which I didn't count on but they did indeed upgrade us. They also left me a bottle of champagne and a piece of birthday cake. Very nice of them! The only negative I would say is that the food is average. However, my favourite was the breakfast because a staff member named Lucy ran the breakfast grill and she makes the best breakfast! Lucy works hard at the grill, in that heat, so please tip her well! Thank you for a nice time RS!

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of the ocean because the sound of the ocean is blissful as you drift off to s...

Stayed May 30- June 6, 2013.
Pros: Only about 20 minutes from the airport. Food @ Marco Polo restaurant was great. Ate there two days in a row, could have done three but the wife wanted the buffet. The staff at the kids club was AWESOME! The fact that they have free child care from 1000-1700 is what makes this place. The only requirement is you have to stay on the property and check on your kids every two hours. They also must be at least four years old (our youngest is only 3, but we told them he was four. Not sure they believed us 100%, but they allowed him to stay anyway with the exception of pool time.) They have craft time, xbox/wii, movies, popcorn, and mini slides for the kids to keep them busy. All three of my kids loved it. The entertainment staff was great as well keeping everyone entertained.
Cons:
After checkout, you see a "concierge" who tries to get you to go to a timeshare presentation. This was pretty tacky. We said no and moved on. The beds are super hard. They must of had a fire sale on super firm beds because that was the number one complaint of everyone we spoke to. My wife also found two dead bugs behind one of our beds, and saw a live bug in the shower...gross!

I gave this place 3/5 because it's nothing fancy, but it gets the job done and you can't beat the price. Will I go back? If it was just me and the wife, no, but with the kids, probably.

Room Tip: Get a room on the 3rd floor. They have much larger balconies. We actually "downgraded" f...

we just returned from royal solaris in los cabos san jose. the stay was excellent. not because there was so much to do because there wasnt. not because it was close to so many thing because its not. it was great because of the people that work at this resort. our country can learn a lot about how to take care of guest from the people from mexico. from the moment we arrived we did not have a care at all. everything was taken care of with a smile and the utmost speed. its an all inclusive which made it very enjoyable not having to bring money anywhere within the resort. the room was nice, cleaned daily if you choose. the pool had activities if you choose to particapate, but also just fun to watch. the entertainment crew was excellent. if all you care about is the food then maybe go to other places to eat once or twice. the food was better than average but not 5 star. dinner shows every night and they were actually quite good. took the local bus to cabos san lucas one day. the cost 5.00 per person ea. way. the drinks were ok but again not 5 star. being a couple that just wanted to relax and enjoy good food and drink and not be a snob this place hit the mark. kid friendly also. we did not bring kids but it was obvious the kids there were having a great time. service around the pool was excellent. and for breakfast it was always nice to say hi each morning to Lucy. she was in charge of make eggs for everyone. she was always smiling and happy to see you. my wife and i are not into going back to places after being there because we like to experience new places so we will not be going back to cabo. we are glad we choose this resort and recommend it to anyone looking for a fun place to go and be treated very very well. in fact the room we had booked thru costco was not located in an area we like in the resort and the front desk changed it to pool side with no problem. thank you royal solaris for treating us like v.i.p.s while staying at your resort. your staff was incredible.

This was our 4th time back. We always stay at the Royal Solaris. The service is great, the hotel is kept immaculate, and the food was great too. The staff makes you feel like your part of their family. It is always hard to say good-bye when the trip is over. Also it never rains in Cabo so if you want to go where there is a great beach and sunny days then this is your destination.

This year we went with 4 other couples and everyone could not believe how nice it was. Great experience every time.

After 3 days in this hotel we were ready to bail out. The buffet became monotonous and they served the same food over and over. We became gold club members but I have to let it go when finding out the benefits that they were offering versus the cost was not beneficial, but just a rip off. The alcoholic beverages were watered down, specially the beer. The beach was not conducive to swimming due to the rough surf too dangerous for children to play and swim

Wow what can I say ? I wasn't expecting too much because I had seen a few bad reviews. But Rudy our concierge changed all of that in an instant! During the whole stay he checked to see if there was anything more he could do for us! I cant believe that people review with such negative comments.Obviously some people are just never happy with anything and wouldn't know good service if it slapped them in the face!
The resort was beautiful . Most of the staff were absolutely lovely and the entertainment was incredible. My family of 5 just didn't want to leave. My 15 year old daughter and 12 year old son even got up and did a karaoke! Thanks to the entertainment team and special thanks to Mikey and Danny boy !
Cleanliness? We were too afraid to make a mess anywhere so we din't offend the numerous cleaning staff that just didn't stop ! So yes its very clean. Rooms weren't the most luxurious, but definitely nothing to complain about. We had just come back from Los Angelos staying at Grand Hyatt paying a ridiculous amount and the rooms there weren't much better.
The food was nice. Not fabulous but nothing to complain about. My husband doesn't like Mexican food( haha yes I dragged him there). But he loved the food and loved the whole mexican experience.

Thank you all so much for such a lovely vacation
