GR Solaris Cancun & Spa - All Inclusive

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Everything was great except the dinner booking reservation part which should be reconsidered. You can only book tomorrow's dinner the day before. You can not book ahead of time.

We've stayed at many resorts in different areas of Mexico...some fabulous and some I wouldn't recommend...the GR Solaris was nice and well priced for its location. Not high end and a little worn looking but it has its pluses: the resort is clean and was mostly families and empty nesters. No crazy loud or obnoxious groups. It is small...which means not a long walk to buffet, beach, etc. Nice Beach area with volleyball court, bus stop to downtown right in front of resort, plenty of pool side activities, room always cleaned and mini fridge restocked daily. The food was average and there is only 2 'specialty' restaurants. If on a budget this is a good place for the $$.

la misma comida todos los dias , si querias sacar la reservacion para otros restaurants tenias que esperar mucho tiempo y ya ni cupo tenian . no regresaria

Great beach. During spring break, if not for the adult pool, would be a definite downgrade Food was good, but restaurant choices extremely limited Fifth time to Cancun, different hotel each time Not the best, but certainly not the worst

This is our 3rd stay at GR Solaris. GR is the perfect mix of upscale hotel and all inclusive value. There is a 5 star restaurant, and other food options down to an all night deli. Drinks are cold and everyone is friendly. There are nightly shows and a dinner theater. Will be at GR for family spring break again next year.

Everything ok but WiFi was really slow food exelente every day different styles which make never go outside more than 30 different drinks an each bar

All inclusive is the way to go. Beautiful water and beach. They clean 24/7. Make all your excruciating through the hotel they will take u and pick u up. It

It really wasn't what was told to me when I booked this vacation. Somewhat overpriced.

From the time my husband and I exited the taxi we were treated like king and queen. The staff met us with a cold bottle of water, relieved us of our suitcases and escorted us to our ocean view room, which was cool and inviting. Leaving the staff hugged us and we were all sorry to leave.

The hotel was beyond what we expected. The super friendly staff are always on the go with a big smile to offer. We were there for 6 nights, which were fantastic. The hotel is awesome with the most gorgeous ocean view. It is very clean, at night they tend to wash the floors around the pool, actually the place is always being cleaned, it's amazing! My kids can't wait to go back there. I was surprised at the constant interaction with the guests, the staff have all these fun/silly games to keep us entertained. Just AMAZING! Elizabeth cleaned our room, she would leave cute animals made out of hand/face towels, my daughter loved them, I would have to take pictures, we were thankful for Elizabeth's kindness.

I have been to many (10+) hotels in cancun and id say this one sits right in the middle. Great location Great shows Great service Very clean For the money a great bargain. The only thing that was mediocre was the good selections. Not gross, but I've had better. This hotel truly shines in all other areas though.

The staff was super friendly and happy. The food was fantastic. Pools and scenry were beautiful.

I got hotel promotion. So I moved to Gr Caribe Hotel. It was very nice. Show program was exciting. My mom was happy with the program.

Overall great resort and hotel for a quick getaway. The resort and facilities were great. The beach was beautiful. The pools were a little small and it was hard to find beach chairs around the 3 pools. The restaurant and food choices were good. There were shows/events every night in the main ballroom, which was really great in-house entertainment. The room was decent and clean.

The initial check in should have been our hint. Of COURSE our room was not ready (even though it was check in time) So we immediately were shuffled over to the HEAVY PRESSURE time sales person, under the guise of being a concierge. One would assume that they would help get us settled in and explain where to eat, how to work the safe, etc. But it was the most rude, overbearing high pressure sales pitch I've ever been involved in. She would not take "no" for an answer. It upset us very much to have this person try to make us feel bad, and to "help her feed her family". Other than that, everything else about this place was just "ok". Service - had some superstars, but most were barely adequate. Beach service was non-existent. Food was just "ok". Room view was great. (ocean front) This is the 6th hotel I've stayed at in Cancun - this place is tied for last. I do not know how this is rated as a 4 star hotel.

This is a quintessential "you get what you pay for" experience. Facility overall was nice and it was awesome having very convenient access to the beach and volleyball court there. The food was marginal at best, drinks all tasted like aspartame and were weak and all tasted the same. (Stick with beer or wine.) Our room was very nice and spacious, except our toilet didn't flush properly and the room smelled HORRIBLY like mold. Even when we got home, our stuff was still musty. The staff, on the other hand, was AMAZING!! Very accommodating, friendly and made us laugh a ton. If I had to take a budget vacation, I'd go here again. But, if you're looking for more than a 2-star vacation, spend the money to stay elsewhere.

The GR Solaris is right on the beach with comfy chairs. There is a very large pool with swim up bar and games provided throughout the day. There is also a heated adults only pool and hot tub. Good amenities! The breakfast options were varied, which is nice - eggs and an omelet station but also empanadas and tostadas. Lunch and dinner, however, weren't as nice. Good the first day, but hard to keep it varied each day and the quality was mediocre. The two nicer restaurants on site were only a little better. We got a good deal, so I can't complain, but I wouldn't pay full price.

Close to the beach- you do have to wake up early to get your chairs! Staff excellent! Food like everywhere else- but not bad... had a great time there!! Thank you to bartenders Hector and Hamilton!!! Great job on drinks- also Rosario did an excellent job in our room!! Thank you and we will be back!!

We had a deluxe room with a Ocean view and the view was excellent from the 3rd floor. The first day we got in after 6PM, so we could not go to the either of the two reservation restaurants. Next day we got in line for reservations and got our pick. Reservations start at 4:30, so we burned a half hour in line which we were OK with. At Marco Polo we went 3 times and I had Salmon, Mahi Mahi and Prime Rib Roast. The fish was very good and the Rib Roast was good -not quite as good as in the US. The buffets are average and we liked the heated club sandwich at the Deli. One day they had a grill at the pool and the chicken was excellent. The hamburger meat was not as good as we get in the US - this was also true when we had burgers at the Airport at Johnny Rockets. Getting a chair at the pool is an issue one couple said they put some towels down at 5:00 am and someone actually moved their chairs others went at 7:00 to get a spot. Some that reserved chairs left them vacant for hours. Since we did not fight the fight, we went to the pool at about 11:00 and found a couple of the regular chairs from the lunch buffet are and moved them closer to the pool behind the lounge chairs. The staff was excellent an a lot of fun. Overall we though it was very nice facility.

Second time at the GR Solaris and it was not disappointing. Excellent staff, food and extras. Will return next time in Cancun.
