Solmar Resort - All Inclusive Optional

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

No access to beach for swimming. Small pool. Overall unsatisfied

The food was great but the rooms were very old... yellow water coming out in the bathrooms. Towels weren’t super clean. The maid walked into the room when we didn’t hear the door as we were sleeping.

Food and service was excellent. The rooms could use a little updating

Three new UV fishing scarves were taken (stolen) from my suitcase presumably by the room service maid. The hotel security staff filed a report, but I never heard back from them after the incident. Hotel staff members are friendly and helpful, and the property is nice otherwise.

When I checked in, the front desk person argued with me and insisted that I did not pay for all-inclusive, when I know I had via Orbitz. She finally called and figured out that I had, and apologized. We got to our room, and the rooms are very outdated. VERY. Like they haven't been updated since the 80s. The next day, they called me to let me know they overcharged me and that I would need to come back down. Turns out our showers (neither one) worked properly. They were missing the labels of which was hot and which was cold. When in the shower, I got burned by the water bc it continuously changed from warm to scalding hot. We got moved to a new room, and it was the same deal. Checkout was 11am, we sat down for breakfast at 11:15am. They made us pay for our breakfast! I've never had that happen at an all-inclusive resort in Mexico. They typically let you have breakfast and use the facilities til you leave for the airport. Very tacky. There's NO espresso at all included in the all-inclusive and all of the alcohol is extremely watered down. There are virtually no options for vegans or gluten-free diets. I was charged $12 for getting makeup on a white hand towel upon check out, which was ridiculous, considering it could be bleached out. Overall this is a pretty lame resort. I would never stay here again.

My daughter and I went to Solmar as a mother/daughter vacation to celebrate her 18th birthday at the end of March. The resort was so nice an clean. We liked it better than the Grand Playa where we went to use the gym and pool. There was so many people there and garbage and plates of food, we enjoyed Solmar better. At Solmar there was always clean chairs and property and the staff and guests were so enjoyable! we made a lot of friends!

It is a very nice quiet place for a relaxing vacation. Good drinks and alot if fun. Everything was clean and taken good care of.

Close to the city center and activities and well-maintained

After check in they try and sell you time share.beware.they got us for 40 dollars.

It was safe had high security. Very pleasant staff and property. Excellent location with a private beach and walking distane to the marina, downtown and shopping. The all inclusive is an extra fee.

It’s was very beautiful and the food was delicious

Great location, easy walk to the Marina. The Staff is AMAZING. The property is old but very well maintained. For those who like to swim in the ocean you cannot swim at this resort because it is on the pacific and extremely dangerous waters. We love Solmar!

Nice hotel, clean, friendly. Food was ok, lacked variety. No such thing as all inclusive unless you wish to pay crazy $$$ and add it as an extra

First of all I want to mention that when I booked, I thought I was booking "Grand Solimar" and not the older"Solimar". This is an older resort that sits next to the "Grand Solimar". Staff was extremely helpful and everything is nice and clean. I happen to have a larger SUV which is a hit and miss to find a place to park in their underground parking. Its too narrow spaces are built according to no standard. This was an all inclusive experience but the food was mediocre compared to other places along the strip. I would for sure go to the "Grand Solimar" next time.

We were charged twice for a hotel to airport transfer and a event we didn’t attend and bugged by timeshare staff.

Nice, close to beach and 10 min walk to downtown and Marina. Older property, but with access to newer sister resorts restaurants. Rooms could use updating, but the bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. The initial tour for "not a time share" was a long and became irritating. We did at least get 2 free excursions from it which included a meal, so that was nice.

Grand solmar is much better but solmar is ok too. Close to downtown, beach, mall, etc

All inclusive was wonderful! Food was excellent, theme dinner events were very professional and fun and the staff very friendly and welcoming! Will stay here again

Old building but nice and quiet. Walking distance to downtown and excursions. Staffs are courtuos

Dear Ms. Lisa; Than you for taking your time to evaluate your experience. Certainly, the Pacific Ocean is not as friendly for swimming than the sea of Cortes, nevertheless, it offers breathtaking views and spots to enjoy from your suite or from any of our two swimming pools or jacuzzi. Our privileged location allows you to get to the swimmable beaches as the Empacadora, lovers beach or Medano bay within a minutes. Our concierge can book for our guest snorkeling tours to explore the famous Chileno or Santa Maria riffs. We appreciate your visit and hope to have the honor of greeting you here again in the short future. Cordially
