room with a view...of a wall and giant pipe

Would not recommend Tue, Jul 7, 2015
I think we got the worst room in the hotel. On the pool level, the window looked out to a giant water pipe and a very tall wall that shielded the ugly water pipe from view of pool goers. Not worth spending the extra bucks on a nicer hotel.

weekend getaway

Would recommend Mon, Feb 9, 2015
We rarely get a weekend away, so it was important that we found a comfortable room, close to the action. Solamar was super nice with big, clean beds and a chill mood. Location is great and they allow all size pets.
