We spent 4 nights at the Royal Solaris over the long President's Day Week-end. We loved the location, but found the hotel lacking in many ways. Food usually isn't an issue with us and we found the quality and the variety to be average. The biggest problem we found was being out of sync with when they were actually offering food, especially late at night after returning from an evening in town or after an afternoon out and about. A few days we had popcorn for a few meals since there was absolutely nothing else available. Aside from the food, our other major issue was the unreliable warm water; between the two of us, we each only had one shower that would be considered comfortably warm. Water pressure was fine - we just got tired of shivering through a shower!
The outdoor jacuzzi/spa was always lukewarm at best and slightly chilly, also. Most everything was very clean, except that jacuzzi had definitely had too many bodies in it all day long and needed more chemicals to counteract the murky water. We never could relax by the poolside due to the constant and obnoxious "entertainment" - that p.a.
system was loud! In order to read or talk to each other, we had to head to the beach for some peace and quiet. It is a fabulous beach, though and worth experiencing fully before the area becomes any more developed. We didn't take the hotel staff's advice on their pricey shuttle service into Cabo San Lucas; instead we walked the 6 blocks to the bus stop, paid 16 pesos (about $1.50) for a one-way trip to San Lucas. The bus was fairly modern, comfortable, and speedy, even with the stops and it was a good way to mix with the locals. People, especially the Mexican men, were extremely polite on the bus to us tourists. Never had a bit of concern and we were on the bus in the morning, afternoon, evening, and after dark. There are less nice buses (old, clunky school-bus look-a-likes) that will zip you into downtown San Jose del Cabo for only 5 pesos one way. It's a good deal if you're in a hurry or have sore feet; the ride isn't as comfortable as the bus into Cabo San Lucas, though. They stop right outside the front entrance to Royal Solaris. We are looking forward to returning to the Cabo area, but after evaluating the hotel, not necessarily at the Royal Solaris.
