Decent hotel, terrible food

I spend 7 days here during 5/20-5/27/2015. The room was clean and the maid service was great. 3 separate times had issues with the beverage service not refilling the bottled water in the room mini-fridge. The entertainment was repetitive, the same acts every 4 days. The pool was gorgeous as was the view but the pool bar closes at 5 pm. Too early. The food was terrible, cafeteria style! Most of the guests I spoke to said the same thing.

First time in Cancun.

This as my first time in Cancun so I don't have anything to compare to. overall I enjoyed my stay here. The food was good, the beach was nice, the pools were great, the beds were a little bit hard and some of the staff (shout out to Frank of the bell staff) were great but the concierge staff not so much. There were a few off them that were more interested in what I could do for them than what they could for me.

Friend Trip

Overall we had a great stay at the GR Solaris. I wouldn't say it's the highest end luxurious resort in Cancun, but for the money we thought it was well worth the stay. The bed was quite hard which is why I gave the room comfort a 4. It was also far from the downtown area, but closest to the airport so it's a trade off really. Lots of public transportation to and from places. The hotel bar is actually a lot of fun at night. We spent most of our nights there. Going out downtown was extremely overpriced in my opinion. We did go out one night to Coco Bongo and the hotel provided transportation down and we bought our bracelets to get in which included drinks for $80/each. I highly recommend going there it was quite and experience. Overall I would go back again and recommend this to a friend especially if I remains significantly cheaper then other resorts.

Best Hotel Ever!!

When it comes to a vacation, I have standards - and the GR Solaris in Cancun, has surpassed all of them. For two years in a row, I have visited the GR Solaris, and have had nothing but an exceptional trip. Everyone from the bellboys who greet you outside, to the front desk staff, to the restaurant managers, the entertainment staff, and those who run everything from the offices -- everyone has the most pleasant smile on their face. Firstly, Carla, who is part of the Social Media team she understands a person's wants & desires, and delivers upon them. She knows how to make a guest feel as if they are a part of the Solaris FAMILY -- one unit. She doesn't make you feel like a guest. Mr. Amilicar, the hotel manager, is one of the sweetest, and continuously smiling people I have ever met. Whenever he sees you, he does not forget to say good morning, evening, or whatever time of the day it is! And he remembers a face he remembered me right away and asked where my family was, because they were at the GR Solaris with me last time. Obilia, who works at the buffet restaurant in the morning, making eggs, remembers your face, and will friend you on social media! It's too adorable! The restaurant managers are beyond caring of your dietary restrictions or anything special you're celebrating, such as Tony and German. And the entertainment staff -- they don't get enough credit for what it is they do. From Sandy, to Fernanda, Ray, and the rest of the team, they make connections with everyone, they can relate to everyone, and they become a true friend to you at the end of your trip. The food at all of the restaurants are amazing and don't forget to ask for Rafael or Alejandro at the pool bar -- they know how to make an awesome drink! Might I also add, we did not travel with young children, but I saw that the kids who were there all day were happy, and had plenty of activities for them. This hotel caters to everyone - families, couples, college kids, and children -- there are activities galore for everyone to enjoy! I can sit here and write wonders all day, but unless you stay at the hotel, you will not understand what a REAL vacation is meant to feel like. The GR Solaris is truly your home away from home! Trust me, you WON'T regret this!

Couples getaway

We had a very fun time at the GR Solaris Cancun Resort. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The main areas of the resort were constantly being cleaned by the staff. The rooms were cleaned very well every day and the bed was comfortable but they were very basic rooms and in need of a little updating. The food in the Marco Polo Restaurant was very good but the service was really slow. The Brazilian Night at the beachfront restaurant was very good and a nice experience. The drinks were very good and the bartenders were very friendly. There was dancing in the main lounge at night until midnight which was a lot of fun! My only criticism of our stay was there did not appear to be enough control in the pool area. There were several people who were beyond inebriated who were still being served liquor and some other behaviors that should have been stopped by a supervisor. You would expect this during a spring break time of year but not in mid May when it was a mix of couples of varying ages and young families. Overall it was a very good value for the price we paid and I would recommend it to friends.
