You cant get closer to the beach!

This trip was great. The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly. The hotel also exchanged money for us which was nice, but almost everybody took US currency. The beach was feet from our pool and resort, which was great (no need for taxi or travel). We will definitely be back to Cancun and GR Solaris.

To save money I would recommend taking the bus to town for shopping or eating out. It only took about 10 min and was less than a dollar US.

Great Place!!!!

Background: 28 yr. old Male & Female from Ohio. Both professionals, college grads, like nice things and aren't hillbillies. I've been to Cancun 4 other times than this visit each at a different hotel. Overall this was the best hotel I've stayed at in Cancun. Pros: - Great service. - Decent liquor choices (Smirnoff, JW Red, Jack Daniels) - Rooms are nice with decent furniture - Nice large tile shower (No bathtub) - There was always some sort of entertainment each night at the hotel. Cons: - The food wasn't that great (Marco Polo is your best option for dinner and you must make a reservation between 8-10AM). Although the buffets aren't the best I was always able to find something that was ok and filled me up. - Bars in the pool area close around 4PM, leaving only the bar inside to get drinks. - Resort is small. You will find more food options, more bars & bigger pools at larger hotels. - As soon as you check-in they will sit you down tell you about the hotel, show you were everything is and then try to make you schedule an appointment with them for a timeshare meeting. I let them schedule the meeting and never showed up for it and after that I never heard from them again about timeshares. - Bed is hard, but I didn't find it to be uncomfortable. Recommendation: - Bring a lot of singles and tip on everything, as the employees (hotel staff and excursion staff) only get paid $10/day and mainly rely on tips for income. Plus you get better service the more you tip. I took $125 for 6 days and that was sufficient. - Venture out downtown to Market 28 - Go out to eat at least 1 or 2 nights. There are some great places to eat in Cancun and they aren't that expensive. Head toward downtown. - Take the bus everywhere (Although we left COCO Bongo at 4AM and none of the buses would stop for us and take us back to the hotel b/c there weren't enough people heading that way) ***Note there is typically a direct correlation between price and the hotel quality.

Great vacation at the right price.

The hotel staff was friendly and true to their word. Someone was always there to help. The food was good. Mostly it was buffet style (except for Marco Polo) but they always had someone at the grill to make either omlettes to order for breakfast or fahjtas at luch and dinner. The hotel also has a bus to take you to the clubs every night at 11 so there was no need to drive or ride the bus there. Overall we had a very nice trip and would definitely go back given the opportunity.

I had been to Cozumel before, but never Cancun. I would not rent a car. The public bus runs up and down the strip and is mostly tourist and very safe. A car eventually just ends up being a hassle.

Bang for the Buck!!

Hard to imagine a more satisfying experience. The accommodations, food, and entertainment were superb. The wait staff were so friendly and helpful. We were truly impressed with the talented entertainers. We had a ball dancing in the lounge. And, of couse, the beaches in Cancun are the best!

Don't miss any of the shows. You can dine at the same time. Shows are over early enough to retire to the lounge for more entertainment and dancing!
