Hotel Room and Air reservation
SANDRA N.
Apr 08 2018
We booked a room for three. We were assigned a room with a king bed. We had to request an extra bed. Other rooms within our group were desugned for three with a pull down bed. Only two bathrobes were provided. Again had to ask for a third. On check out we were asked if we were offered a different room. Not sure why this was not asked prior but the reservation was clearly for three. Our reservation for seat assignment was also split. We were not seated together for our final leg. This was unaaceptable to me and I was told that it was Apple who booked the seats. To sit together we would have had to pay more.

The staff and service at GR Solaris is excellent. If you make an attempt to speak in Spanish, they will shower you with service even though most employees speak excellent english. The fine dining experience was very good and highly recommended. The property itself is a bit worn and in need of some updating as it is over 30 yeears old and compared to the sister resort next door that we visited.

Been to this property many times. The hotel is just the right size - not too big and not too small. There are many service staff members that do nothing but work hard to earn your respect. Among them Mikay, Irving, Carlos Cen, Gilberto, Carlos. Hernando the pool barkeep is a character. They all do a wonderful job. After coming to this property up to 8-9 times before, we were looking forward to our “repeater” tee-shirts - not to be found. Really? Otherwise- if your can’t have a good time here, you’re missing the boat.

This is probably one of the cleanest friendliest resorts we have stayed in the only negatives were very poor quality food and variety of food offered me the mattress was harder than the tile floor. The staff was over and above friendly and resort was impeccable clean.

Good hotel... definitely not a gold star

Our stay at the GR Solaris was good. We chose the hotel for the gold star rating and it was probably a4-5 red apple hotel. Therefore we were disappointed because of our expectation that it would be more luxurious. The beds were ok. Lamp shades hung funny because they were rusted and the outlets were loose on the wall. Not big problems, but our expectations were high. The food was good but it took a few days to figure out what we liked to eat. The staff was nice, but not very encouraging for participation. We had a nice time, but I doubt we would go back.

Grand Solaris Cancun is a Grand Hotel! With lots of choices for entertainment nightly and food. The bar is open which seems like always. The grounds are clean and beautiful. Staff is friendly and willing to help.

Overall everything was ok. Hotel is clean, rooms are ok, food ok, services alright. Beds not that great. The kids had fun I guess that’s what matters. Not sure if I would come back to this hotel. I wish the beach had more beach umbrellas.

Grandma Granddaughter vacation spectacular!

For the 2nd time in 3 years I have taken our granddaughter for a Nonna and Maddie vacation for Spring Break to Royal Solaris property. We've been members for 8 years and so love it and use our membership one or 2 times a year. This is the first time at GR Solaris in Cancun. The minute we arrived Maddie rushed to the Mini Club and spent most of every day (and 2 evenings) with the wonderful staff at the kids club - Montse, Mitzy, and Yesy and Karen provide a true "camp" experience (including the two beach campouts from 5-8pm. M even participated in the kids talent show before one of their staff -based shows. Each and every show was really top shelf - The Mexican Show on Monday and the Magic Show on Saturday were quite unique and special. Marco Polo restaurant always a treat and tried the Asian ZAI for the first time and enjoyed that as well. The social staff does a wonderful job every day poolside to keep things lively and our oceanfront view was spectacular. I especially want to thank the Member Staff for treating me so wonderfully even sending up a bottle of champagne to my room the first evening. We loved it so much we are hoping to return with the family for Thanksgiving and again next year for Spring Break. Thank you GR Solaris for a wonderful week - and thanks for all the sunshine too.

Great for a family trip

This is a very nice hotel. It's smaller than hotels we've stayed at in Cancun in the past. We ended up liking the smaller hotel a lot. We travelled with our kids and they really enjoyed it too. There was always a good crowd but never seemed to busy. The atmosphere around the pool was fun. The staff was fantastic and friendly. Shows at night were great. I would have given it 5 stars but we really did not care for the buffet food at dinner time. We would definitely go back!

Great resort!

This is an awesome resort. It’s budget friendly and what you get for your money is well worth it. Being a more budget friendly resort it’s obviously not as fancy or luxurious as some of the other resorts in the area. Some parts of the building show a little wear and tear but the staff works hard keeping the place extremely clean. The buffet food is average for an all inclusive. the restaurant are delicious! One employee who I have to mention is Javier who works at the pizza station. He was so friendly and always had a smile on his face. He also made the most delicious pizza. We ate it everyday for lunch it was so good! The other thing I loved was the coffee cocktails made in the lobby. I didn’t get the employees name but she made some amazing drinks. The staff at this resort are awesome. They are happy and very attentive to their guests. I would definitely recommend this resort if you are doing Cancun on a budget and want great service.
