Home > GR Solaris Cancun
Ambiance- Having stayed at the Solaris in Cabo I have to admit I was surprised how eloquent this resort was. From the minute you walk in the lobby you say to yourself this is not bad. The GR Solaris is the step up in the Solaris brand so it makes sense that the ambiance would also be a step up.
Beach -The beach looks better than ever after the major restoration a few years ago..
Charges (extra) - Spa treatments and business services would be extra.
Distances- On the south end of the hotel zone and very convenient to the airport only about 15 minutes away.
Entertainment on Property -They have nightly entertainment but they also do something different that I have not seen at other all-inclusive's. They do a dinner show in the theatre 3 nights a week and I thought that was a nice touch.
Fitness Area - A decent fitness room, nothing fancy. But hey, you are on vacation, leave the sneaks at home, they just take up valuable room in your luggage.
Food- 5 restaurants of which 1 is a specialty restaurant serving a varied menu each evening. No reservations are required which is nice. I remember the food was pretty good when I stayed at the other Solaris so my expectations would be the same for here.
Getting Around- Very easy to get around by taxi or the bus. I take the bus all the time there unless I have to be somewhere quickly. The bus is very inexpensive.
Internet Access - They have wireless internet access in the lobby and ballroom but not in the rooms as of yet.
Jackets and Ties- Keep them at home, but for men bring slacks and polo shirt for dinner for the specialty restaurant since shorts or swimsuits are not allowed for dinner.
Kids-They have a small kids club. Though kids are welcome, there are a couple of other resorts in Cancun that are more geared towards children. If the kids normally stick close to the hip this is perfectly fine.
Little Known Fact-Many people do not know about the dinner theatre.
Medical Services-On call medical services.
Negatives- Cancun's hotel zone with all the resorts turns off some people and other people love it.
Nightlife- This is Cancun, need I say more?
Opportunities-One of the better values in Cancun.
Pool-I am a pool person and I was impressed with the pool area. I could see myself sipping a tall one by the pool.
Protection-In room safe.
Recreation-They have activities at the resort but it will be a bit more subdued than other all inclusive's.
Rooms- Where other resorts have 15 zillion room types (ok I exaggerate, 14 zillion), they keep it simple with 2 room types. The rooms are small but very adequate.
Shopping-Small gift shop on property. Even more shopping all along Cancun since more stores have opened in 2007 and 2008.
SPA- I thought it was a decent spa with all the normal treatments. If you have read my other reviews I am not a big spa person so take my views with a grain of salt when it comes to the spa.
Terrain- Very easy to get around and since it is pretty self contained, easy to get fro you room to the beach without walking for miles.
View-Fantastic views of the ocean.
Weather-December through May are the driest months. September through November are the wettest months with June getting more rainfall than July.
WOW Factor-Such eloquence for what you pay to stay here.
X-Y-Z- I am impressed how well this resort prices. I think the smaller rooms and only 1 specialty restaurant has to do with it compared to other resorts but if you do not want to spend an arm and a leg, this should exceed your expectations.
