Reviewed October 3, 2013

this my first review, i thought i had to write considering they were a few misconceptions about this resort.

this is my second time to cabo (3rd to mex), however had more fun this time around, mainly due to the resort.
checking in
i had read reviews about construction noise, so at check in i requested something away from the noise, they gave me a nice suite, 2 bath, living room/bedroom (upgraded without charge). few min after, we were sent some choc. covered strawberries courtesy of the manager.

facilities,
we were at the upper pool, however it was not maintained, and second last day, they started doing maintenance on it. we mainly stayed at the lower pool near the restaurant with was well maintained and temp was good.

Our mattress was quite soft, (only complain)

food,
food was very good, we had buffet only on one night, but everything was a-la cart. even though it was mainly the same menu, it didnt bother us as were were here only for 4 nights. Good presentation, and tasted quite good aswell. sushi wasn't as good, but hey! this is mexico not Japan or Vancouver.

my only complain was nachos w/cheese, were microwaved, so were soggy.

service
service was amazing, i think this was the best part. everybody worked to please , even though we tipped , i saw many people who didn't, however they were still getting good service.

alcohol
they just used bottom shelf liq. but that was fine, drinks were strong if u asked them double, and beer was canned, not watered drown draft beer alot of resort use.

location
its towards the end of the beach. however in cabo , they arn't many places u can swim, however the "arch" is quite close by, you can go outside the resort towards the town, when u get to the bottom of the hill , (opposite the marina) turn right and keep waking, (good 15-20) min walk, or was on the beach towards the rock, somebody will be waiting there to guide u across the rocks towards the beach (10 min hike through the rocks) make sure u have speakers, we did bare food/sandals , we tipped the guy 4000$ mex, 4$.

its quite close to marina, but not too close, which is good.

NOISE
we only heard noise when were were in the pool, we didnt wake up to drilling or any other noise, and it didn't bother us.

checkout was smooth aswell.
no issues, not extra charges,

WOULD RETURN,,,

We bought a Living Social deal for 3 nights for this resort, but upgraded out after the 2nd night to one of their sister resorts, not necessarily because there was anything wrong but it wasn't what we were looking for. The resort is bit old and they do not organize any events or anything of that sort, if you are looking for a quiet time in Cabo this might not be bad idea. The service was spot on all in all, we particularly liked the restaurant...we like no frill restaurants with great food and this was perfect for us.

Room Tip: There is construction going on in the adjacent property, so try to get a room away from it and close...

I just returned from celebrating my birthday at Solmar All Inclusive and I loved my experience. The services, rooms, pool, and FOOD were amazing. The staff is the BEST ever at customer service. The all inclusive deal is GREAT. Every dish that I enjoyed was great! I felt like I didn't want to leave the hotel because everything is so accomodating. When I go back to Cabo, without a doubt in my mind, I am going back to Solmar. I loved that I could have my 3 year old son and it was not a crazy wild party seen, although their were a lot of drink flowing. BEST and MOST relaxing birthday ever!

Room Tip: Make sure you request a room away from the construction.

Used RCI Points: not disappointed. Yes, there is construction and yes, it is distracting. Solutions? First, ask for a room far away from it; staff will accommodate if possible (thanks, Raymundo). Second, take the shuttle to Playa Sol Mar or walk the 5 minutes to their pool area. No cost and no noise. Literally 3 blocks from the Marina and all it has to offer; but walk just a few blocks on and you find small shops, restaurants and more.

Back to Sol Mar: pool is nice, easy walk from the rooms. Good pool bar and Tejeban is a good place for dinner. La Roca, located on a different Sol Mar, is a golf cart shuttle away and a place you MUST dine at! Breakfast buffet is full of bright, fresh food and outstanding Mexican coffee...and fresh-squeezed orange, papaya and pineapple juices. For dinner, La Roca is a well-priced, 4 star experience. Wait staff has been well-trained on fine dining and the food? Fantastic! one of out best dinners EVER. really.

Staff of note: Erick, Cristina and Andres; friendly, ready-to-help. (special thanks to Cristina the concierge; she quickly solved a minor problem)

You will not be disappointed in Sol Mar.

Room Tip: Ask to be placed "away from the construction" and ask for an ocean view; we were here dur...

We used a Living Social deal to make this all-inclusive experience ridiculously inexpensive. Nothing to complain about. Food and drinks more than met expectations. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Location is ideal. If we didn't like San Jose so much better than Cabo San Lucas we would return to this resort.

Room Tip: Room 2204 is closest to the ocean, above the pool, and the best location at the resort.

The wife and I found the gem in Mexico, and happy we did. The staff was amazing from start to finish. Without a doubt it is a breath of fresh air to be around people who enjoy working and serving. Coming from the states far to often Resorts have a "what can I do for you now" attitude, and we all know that gets old.

The Staff at the all inclusive restaurant was very inviting, and seemed to never go home. No worries if you do not speak Spanish, they are very helpful in English as well as Spanish. They are even willing to help when you butcher the language they speak daily. Ernesto, Alejandro, and Thomas all did an amazing job, and even made a few special "not on the menu" items for the wife and I when we asked. Those three really did an amazing job.

The resort itself was clean, quiet, and safe. At no time did we go without, or feel we shouldn’t / Couldn’t leave our room. The staff was always cleaning, and very friendly. The room had a full kitchen including stove top. Our patio overlooked the resort and ocean, making for a very relaxing stay. The only neagitve would be the fly's, fly's everywhere, no a/c in restaurant. There was only 1 restaurant and it was not inside but it was good. You had to sign a bill every time, which was very annoying considering it was all inclusive.

We were walking distance (3 minutes) from the pier, which made for very good shopping. The locals were sometimes persistent, but never rude when it came to buying from them. overall a fun time shopping.

Word to the wise, don’t feel pressure to exchange money for Pesos... It was a very American tourist driven resort town. Dollars taken at all areas (and preferred).

GREAT TRIP AND THANKS AGAIN TO THE AMAZING STAFF!

Room Tip: Depending on time of year ask to overlook main pool area (two pools at resort), or be placed near re...

We wanted a sunny get away that was not too far from home (Oregon). We spent 5 night here and it exceeded our expectations. We got upgraded to a very large room with one of the best views. The food was excellent and had a large variety. The construction did not bother us and our room was not far from it. It was an easy walk to the Marina, but we only bothered to go there once. I got a massage at the spa and it was one of the best I've ever received. I would highly recommend!
