Overall this hotel was good .the beach had red flags 3days because of rip tides. The food was average. Except for the lady who does the breakfast.omelets.We had a king bed when we booked our room they did not have one but they accommodated us and they combined the 2 queen beds together.Which made a super big bed and comfort sleeping.the rooms are very clean.and the grounds well kept.

“Three and a half stars by Cancun expert”

I love the beach, so I go to Cancun almost every summer, and I always choose all-inclusive resorts in the Hotel Zone. I think all-inclusive hotels are still a great deal, regardless of higher airfares or the economy. This time, we were looking for a Fall Break getaway, and I found a good rate for the GR Solaris hotel (my wife and I stayed for 6 days / 5 nights). This was my second stay at this hotel, and we enjoyed every minute of our vacation. The level of service from management and staff was excellent. HOTEL: The hotel appears to have been built in the 1980’s, but is still in very good condition. The staff was polite and professional. Almost every staff member I passed greeted me. The hotel was very clean, and we frequently saw employees cleaning, painting, and tending to the landscaping. We did notice some cracked tiles on the hallway floors and in the pool, but this did not affect anything overall. There is a small gym on the property, and the equipment appeared to be upgraded since the last time I visited this hotel. This might seem like a strange comment, but the elevator service was exceptionally good in this hotel—the elevators always responded to your call within seconds, and they operated quietly and quickly. ROOMS: About half the rooms face (or view) the ocean, the others face the lagoon. Unless you pay an upcharge, you will likely have a lagoon view. Since I was a repeat visitor to this hotel, the front desk kindly upgraded me (for no charge) to an ocean-view room. Although I would have preferred a king-size bed, the only room available on that side of the hotel had two double beds. Our room was on the 4th floor, with a beautiful view of the ocean and pool. The room also had a newer flat-screen TV, and free use of the in-room safe. FYI, almost all of the TV channels were in Spanish. There is a small refrigerator in the room, and it is stocked with water, soda, and beer. We typically used all the water bottles, but the fridge was refilled daily. There are no overhead fans in the rooms, and although the AC worked fine, I couldn't get enough air moving to where I was comfortable all night long. FOOD: The food was very good in the buffet and excellent in the premium restaurants (we had dinner twice at Marco Polo, and once at Zai). It is fairly easy to get reservations, but you must go to Marco Polo about 5 pm to reserve a dinner time at the premium restaurants. The staff was excellent (our favorite waiter was "Jair"). BARS: We usually had no trouble ordering drinks. The drinks were very good (we always ordered premium brands). The swim-up bar was usually pretty busy, and we sometimes waited a few minutes to get drinks. There is a walk-up bar near the pool/beach that was open all day long. The lobby bar was not too busy, even at night, and we usually got served immediately. The drinks were usually good and strong. The staff was excellent (“Eider” was our favorite bartender). The bartenders will usually remember what you drink. As always, I recommend tipping for better service. POOLS: The pools were nice—two large pools for families, and a smaller "hidden" pool for adults only. There is a swim-up bar at the main pool. There are screened areas and large umbrellas near the pools for those of us who want some protection from the sun. There are plenty of lounge chairs, if you get there in the morning. Great pool staff and fun entertainment every day at the main pool. Kids can play in the main pool, or there is a kids’ club for the kids to do fun activities every day. The hotel does have an outdoor poolside buffet in the afternoon, which was very convenient, especially when you are starving but still dripping wet from a swim. BEACH: The ocean and beach area were fine, and the sand and water were very nice. This is one of the most beautiful beaches in the Cancun hotel zone. The staff would rake and sweep the sand by the beach each morning to clean up seaweed and litter. We did see some vendors on the beach, but they were not pushy. ENTERTAINMENT: The hotel had good evening entertainment, and shows were different each night. The entertainment didn't start until 9 PM. The only night without a live show was Sunday, when they host karaoke in the lobby bar, and even that was decent. There is no disco on the property, like some of the other Cancun hotels, although there is a small dance floor in the lobby bar. ETC: This hotel is located on the main boulevard passing through the Hotel Zone. You can take the city bus for about one US dollar and get to almost anywhere in Cancun. The shopping areas are very close. The busses don’t have AC, but it’s still not a bad ride. We almost never use a taxi in Cancun. The tap water in Cancun is treated and is safe to drink. Once more, I would like to mention that even though many hotels here are completely "all-inclusive", I always bring $100 or more in US $1 and $5 bills for tipping the waiters and housekeeping staff. I find that I get better service and I hope makes a small difference for the people in Mexico who work hard for much less dough than we make in the US. Note: I booked this trip through CheapCaribbean.com and had great service from that website.

Beautiful Pool and Beach, Food not so much

The hotel was beautiful and well kept, the service was great, and the beach and pool were top notch. The food wasn't anything to write home about. If you are looking for authentic Mexican cuisine, you will only find it there one night a week on "Mexican" night at the buffet. It also came to our attention while we were there that the Solaris Resorts are all very time-share focused. We were regularly approached by hotel staff who would try to convince us to "visit" the other resorts for a "brief presentation", after which we would get free services (ie. meals, massages, etc). With a promise of a 45 minute presentation, we obliged, only to find out the presentation was actually 1 1/2 hours. Thankfully, we walked out. Other people who stayed said they were there for 3 hours. Having only 4 days in Cancun, our time was precious and we did not have any to waste. Overall, I would recommend this resort if you are looking for a quick, scenic, tropical vacation for a smaller budget. That being said, you can get similar views and relaxation at many other places in the world. For that reason, we will not be going back to the GR Solaris, but we will book through Cheap Caribbean!

Top 5 Vacations EVER

This was by far the best vacation I've ever had. The GR Solaris Resort was amazing and such a great set up as far as pool/ocean/bars/food...it all flowed so well for easily finding things and feeling like you are a part of everything happening. The swim up bar was so great and all the staff were wonderful. No complaints from me other than my hair was a giant poofball because of the humidity in Cancun HA! Truly loved this place. Felt like paradise from the moment we arrived. Abran was the bar tender in the lobby during the day and he was AMAZING. My husband and I were traveling with another couple and when we checked in, we walked straight over to request a drink and he already had 4 shots lined up waiting for us! We knew right then, this was going to be a great trip. Any time we walked into the lobby bar area he had drinks waiting on us. Same for the restaurants. Once we ordered drinks, they just kept them coming. Food was excellent and was always beautifully prepared on the buffets. So much care was taken with every detail. We are already planning a trip back to stay at this same resort....worth every penny. Thank you GR Solaris!!!

What's to Love

All rooms have balconies with breathtaking, soul-stirring views of either Nichupte Lagoon or the azure/teal waters of the Caribbean. Some even have open air jetted tubs.

Unlimited adult beverages. (Yes, you read that right). And bartenders who will mix up whatever you can think of. So get creative!

On Sunday night, show off your singing skills at Karaoke Night in the lobby - come on, you have a song you love sing.

You can keep your rockin' bod in shape at the Fitness Center, then chill at the Spa with a stress-smashing massage.

 

What We'd Change

Cancun is a busy place, but that's what you're here for - good times, the beach, pools, and sunny weather.
 

Why You Should Go

Located in the heart of Cancun - you'll land and be sittin' pretty beachside in no time at all.

Late-night munchies can be satisfied by the Deli, open from 4 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. (Nosh away, any time).

Try the mud wrap at the resort's spa - it'll really brighten up your sun-drenched skin

For you athletes, there's tennis and beach volleyball. (Let's see those guns).

You can enjoy a romantic dinner on the beach for two and listen to the purr of the ocean. (Swoon).

A hot spot for the kiddos - a Mini Club with shallow pools, activities, video games like Nintendo, Wii and Xbox 360. Gotta keep those young ones (teens included) happy and melt-down free!
