Everything we were looking for!

Our stay at the GR Solaris was absolutely wonderful. It was everything we were looking for out of this vacation. Although the first thing to avoid are the time-share hawks. This was pretty annoying since we did not have the chance to avoid them as we barely had one foot in the door and they were on top of us before even checking in and portraying themselves as gracious hosts before they got into their pitch. That aside the resort itself was wonderful. We were pleasantly surprised with our room. It was a large room with the king bed we had requested and from our experience contrary to other reviews we had read it was quiet as well. The food aound the resort was adequate. However, you have to take advantage of Marco Polo. Wow, the food there is exceptional and the service was top notch. Felt like a five-star restaurant. One request is just please dress appropriately. A little extra tip for your waiter goes a long way also. The same can be said for the bartenders around the resort. At first I thought why tip them extra, but they are very appreciative and you will notice with your drink quality. The pool areas are well thought out and seperate for whatever you may choose to do while basking in the sunshine. The activities staff up near the pool bar were great and they kept you involved if you chose to do so. If not you can go to the lower pool or over to the adult only quiet side of the resort with it's own pool area and hot tub and massage tables with the sound of the ocean while enjoying your massage. Well worth it! Overall we were very happy with the GR Solaris and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Beautiful Hotel

The hotel was very well maintained. Halls are noisy because of the tile, it all echos. Would prefer a hotel w/o kids. Lots of food and the entertainment was good. [...]. The hotel was beautiful and most staff were nice. If you don't mind kids running everywhere it is a nice place to stay. [...] in the breakfast buffet made our stay pleasant. He was very helpful. Look hime up if you travel to GR Solaris.

Love Cancun

This was our second trip to Cancun. Although our trip was fantastic, you can see how the economic downturn is impacting the tourism industry in Cancun. Many of the reviews bash the food. Here's the deal a buffet is not going to be gourmet! If you are expecting gourmet you will need to dig deeper into the wallet and don't go all-inclusive. However, GR Solaris does have a gourmet table service opportunity each evening if you make the reservations. I will say that for the price you can't find a better vacation.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Unless you are a hard core adventurer, you will be best suited to book your other activities when you arrive. The weather, how much you drank the night before etc. will all determine whether its a good day for that activity. Tip your servers........a dollar or two goes a long way!!!

Good price good place

Good hotel, and good all inclusive service, might the pool area is not enought large but good. Very nice beach but the sea in this area is little dangerous. I recomend this place, is far from the molls but you canĀ“take the bus anytime to get there paying just $7.50 pesos with cash. Good food, and the night performances was excellent

"What a great time"

This was my second trip to Cancun and we really enjoyed this time. The hotel exceeded all our expectations. I traveled with my Mom and we both were very impressed with the whole experience. The hotel grounds are small compared to most which made it easy to get to anywhere you needed to be very quickly. It felt more intimate in regards to service and the staff was fantastic. The food was the best of any all-inclusive I have been to. The beach was awesome and the separate "adults only" pool was a nice getaway from the crowds. We will definitely go back again and highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.

Cancun 5/29

My husband and I had a rare long weekend off together and decided to get away. We chose this hotel because of the ratings and the great prices. We had a glich with our trip when our plane was delayed 4.5 hours before take off and we missed our connecting flight. We then were stuck in Atlanta overnight. We were unable to get a refund for our missed night but the resort offered to allow us an extra night. Unfortunately we both had to return to the states to work. So perhaps this tainted our views. Then of course we had to fend off the the offer to attend a breakfast in which we will hear about buying into the resort. We had already lost a night and we didn't want to spend 2-3 hrs listening to a sales rep. Also, our opinion could be tainted as we stayed twice before at Palace Resorts and it totally spoiled us. Palace people are always friendly and the resort is spotless. The food is very good. I have to say that Solaris could work on these areas...cleanliness,friendliness and professionalism.

Nice place

Nice place. Plesant staff in general. Clean. The food was ok for me (maybe I'm just not used with that type of food.... The coffee was terrible!!! Funny events. Didn't like though that you have to make reservations to one of the restaurants. There was a line to make reservations before 8 am!

Great experience at GR Solaris

I loved this hotel! We had the panoramic view room & it was great! Beach was beautiful! The water was very rough & the red flag was up the whole time, didn't bother us-probably not good for little ones though. We had to get up really early to get a good spot at the pool. Adult pool was nice & quiet. The buffet was ok. Something for everyone, but not the best food i've ever ate. For the price, this was a great hotel.
