Solmar Resort

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Our stay at Solmar was great! The resort itself is an older resort so the room was not "modern" but it was still comfortable and nice. The staff is AMAZING! They are very friendly and left personal touches, like balloons, streamers and "Happy Birthday" written on the bed spread in colorful aquarium type rocks on my birthday. We are already planning our next trip back.

Hotel is beautiful well maintained bed is comfortable room is out dated and a little dark when curtain are closed, restaurant on the beach and food was good

The resort is beautiful, the scenery is amazing and the staff is very friendly. This part was perfect! But get ready for the timeshare sales pitch. It starts a few minutes after checking in. Very friendly staff in the resort lobby starts trying to get you to attend one of their presentations for a timeshare. Of course, offering free this or that, the more you resist, the more free stuff she has to give you. After not agreeing to attend the presentation on this initial encounter, day two at the resort comes. We are spotted by the same, very friendly and very aggressive rep again about attending the presentation. Again, we do not agree to attend. Day three comes, a different rep approaches us again about attending the timeshare presentation. By day four we have figured out our way to the pool to avoid the reps pushing the timeshares. We booked this resort through Orbitz, not through any kind of deal to get discounted or free nights to attend a presentation. Very much turned off by the aggressive approach to try to sell us a timeshare. I can only imagine the pressure to buy had we agreed to attend one of the presentations! Also, as info, there are different resorts within Solmar. They all flow together seamlessly and all look beautiful and well maintained. Know that, you will NOT be allowed to use the amenities at the other Solmar resort (Grand Solmar). Not to worry, they will let you spend your money in the restaurants and bars over there.

Solmar was quite booked for our reserved stay. They had a wedding there so when we checked in, they told us that as owners at their sister resort, Playa Grande, they would upgrade us. The hotel staff checked us in and then accompanied us to Playa Grande to check us in there. Staff was so friendly and accommodating. Love Solmar resorts!

Units were built in the 70,s ...little dated, but excellent resort and staff to make your stay so enjoyable.

The first room I had was very smelly. The second room was better, but the resort has an overall dated feel to it.

Stayed at Solmar with an all-inclusive package for 6 nights. The all-inclusive is recommended, otherwise they have ridiculous prices for food/drinks. The room was clean, spacious, and housekeeping staff were excellent at cleaning daily. The food from the Tejaban restaurant was well prepared and seemed to be good quality. Waitstaff and hostess were all friendly, attentive, and accomodating. All drinks from the bar were weak and sugary. After the first day I started ordering extra side shots of liquor to pour into the mixed drinks I ordered and balance them out. Avoid the swimming pool. There was foamy scum and debris floating in it by the afternoon and evening. Also, it was very warm. You can take a free shuttle to the Playa Grande Hotel which has multiple very large, clean pools and an overall more pleasing and entertaining atmosphere with activities and games. You don't however receive free drinks there with your Solmar all inclusive. The worst part was the Grand Solmar resort next door, the main reason I would not come back to Solmar. The timeshare people constantly pressure you while walking around the entrance to take their tour/presentation. Our "tour" consisted of mediocre breakfast, an older American man who insulted Mexican laborers several times, and multiple pushy salesman. Don't come here to spend time on the beach, the Pacific is too rough for swimming and the resorts do everything they can to try to keep you off the beach.

Thet people incharged of sealing the time shares pressure and insist alot.. even after we said no...we had to hide from a lady every time we pass by the lobby..

Older but well maintained. Friendly staff and short walk to downtown. Great for budget travel.

Good place to stay for the price. They need more bars at the facility and a shuttle down the hill would have been nice.

Great place for wedding and all guests! We had a blast

Nice Hotel, great location , right on the beach. The staff was great

I was pleased with the grounds and the close proximity to ocean beauty. Disappointed my room didn't have a tv in the living room, and sofa was really worn. I spent a majority of our time on the go or down in the pool areas. I would. It let this deter you, as the property is great.

We had a wonderful, relaxing time at Solmar. Everyone is so nice and the service is excellent. We enjoyed the theme night buffets but also enjoyed quiet meals at the upper pool restaurant. We looked forward to waking up and enjoying our ocean view with morning coffee.

The hotel Solmar is in a great location love that the beach is free of vendors and the whale watching was top notch. There is only one restaurant, the breakfast was yummy and lots of variety available. Lunch by the pool was also good there is a sushi bar as well for lunch. Dinner was unimpressive lots of buffets, not my favorite. But the staff at restaurants and pool were wonderful Vanessa and Wifi especially! Oh there is an additional charge for wifi and is cut off early on your last day. We had to move our room mid trip which was a big pain no real reason it seemed to be a common practice here as some units are time shares and owners were coming. We asked to be near friends and was told not available then they had someone check next to them later that night! The administration were not helpful or very costumer friendly. Never gave us welcome package of beverages for our room frig after asking repeatedly. Wouldn't allow us to have late check out after the inconvenience of moving us. Would we visit again probably location was prime. And now knowing that the administration is not accomadating we know what to expect. The trip was inexpensive so that was a plus.

This is a great hotel for the following, Looking at the Pacific ocean but not going in. The currents are to strong on the pacific side. Relaxing by the pool, and great for access to the marina and down town. Its a 10 minute walk max to the marina and very safe. This is an old timeshare with a brand new one next to it. We did not do the all-inclusive but we did eat at the nicest restaurant at the new timeshare ( Grand Solmar) one night which was very good but expensive. Room was fine, nothing special, although it does take a while to get hot (pretty warm) water.

Cleaning personal was not as thorough as in the past. Restaurant and front desk people were helpful as always. Overall very good time in a beautiful area.

Very nice hotel. Enjoyed the open area where yhe pool and common area is. Great staff, very velpful and courteous.

This was my first stay at The Solmar and I WILL stay there again . The location is excellent being right on the Pacfic for whale watching and close walk to the Marina and to all town has to offer. The whole staff was the friendliest I have ever experienced in Cabo, they spoke even when encountered on a sidewalk after they were off work. My room was quite comfortable and with a small kitchen. My only complaint was the website had fitness room as an amenity located at Playa Grande but there is an $11 charge to use the facility. To me amenity is something that is something offered to guests to use at no charge. Like the pool, toiletries, and etc.

Visitors should be prepared for on site Time Share sales staff pushing presentations.

Dear Mr. Ray: First of all, I thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I am very sorry to know that the customer service from our team, the cleaning of the property and the beauty of our location have been overshadowed by the performance of external timeshare sales staff. I have already talked with their marketing director to handle the approach to our guests in a different way to avoid these types of inconveniences. Thank you very much for your comments, we hope to have the honor of your visit and the opportunity to provide you an even better experience. Respectfully Luis Alvarez General manager
