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

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.

There is nothing special about this hotel to justify the premium pricing. Stayed there for three nights.

weekend getaway

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.

Nice 4-star hotel. You get what you expect with the price. Nothing blew me away. Jacuzzi tub was worth the extra price.

great location!

The hotel was clean and the staff was very nice! Every time we pulled out to drive somewhere the valet guys would always ask if we needed any help getting anywhere. I was a little shocked with a valet fee every day, it was a little unexpected. Other than that the hotel was in walking distance of everything! shopping and late light dining!

Very Nice Hotel

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Solamar. Room was very nicely designed, and the staff was wonderful. Walls were a little thin (or the kids next door were just REALLY loud), but we didn't mind overall. Will return when we're in the area again. Great value and location!
