Gr Solaris
CHRISTIAN E.

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.

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 in Cancun- The Best!!!

This was our 2nd time to the Grand Solaris. Perfect! The staff is truly wonderful we were in want of nothing! From service at the pool, the lounge, the restaurants and room service! The rooms are great, clean and comfortable. The pools are beautiful and the hot tub is great after the sun goes down. We went to Grand Solaris in 2014 and Jamaica in 2015. This January 2016 we went back to the Grand Solaris as Jamaica was no comparison to everything listed above! Plus have to note the beach is beautiful! We will be back next year!

Great resort!

As most of the reviews have stated, great resort, amazing staff and mediocre food. I will say that the restaurant food was very good, but allow about 2 hours from start to finish. Also make sure you reserve restaurants the day before, reservations taken at 4:30. Be prompt, they fill up fast. Buffets always available, and a deli open all night so you'll never go hungry. The people, the cleanliness and the atmosphere are what make this resort a great place to stay. We are RCI owners, and many of their resorts are tired or dated, but not Solaris. These folks work hard to keep this resort looking fresh. I preferred the quieter adult only pool and hot tub, but the larger pool and pool bar were always hoppin. Then there is always the beach with shaded areas too. This resort has something for everyone, including the younger ones.

Awesome family vacation!!

We recently traveled to GR Solaris with our 5 kids ages 13-14 18 21 and 24. We chose the resort because of our budget it was affordable for all of us to be able to go and spend Christmas there. My husband and I actually geared ourselves up to be disappointed as we didn't think it was going to meet our expectations, we had traveled to Mexico a few other times by ourselves to more upgraded resorts, however we were very pleasantly surprised that this hotel met all of our expectations and much more, the food was good the beach and pool were awesome no seaweed at all and high waves which the boys loved body to body surf. The rooms were sufficient as you don't spend a whole lot of time in there anyway. The staff was absolutely amazing, especially the entertainment staff, LUIS is the best!!! Vermon who worked at the nightly at the shows always took great care of us as well!! They treated us like royalty and often had prime seating for us and our drinks ready for us as we walked in, we did tip, a little tip money goes a long way, they definitely deserved it. We learned that at a smaller Resort you make relationships with the staff and that is different than some of the larger Resorts we've previously traveled to. There were constantly activities going on around the pool or you could enjoy peace and quiet at the lower pool or adult pool where you could not hear the music or activities going on. There was a swim-up bar and the restaurants and food areas did a great job of changing what they had available every day so nothing was ever the same. I highly recommend GR Solaris to anybody who would like to travel on a budget but not feel like you are. It was an amazing Resort and we will definitely be back!! Thank you GR Solaris for such a great family vacation!!

Great family vacation

We recently came back from vacation and enjoyed it a lot. My wife and I went with our 1 Year old son. The resort was kid friendly. The staff was very friendly. The Hotel, rooms, pools, dining areas were clean. Within the Hotel they had theater shows at night, during the day at the pool they had different activities to keep everyone engaged. Overall we were very happy.

Poor Quality Resort
Borzoo S, San Francisco, California
Mon Jan 15 15:37:43 EST 2018
This hotel has poor quality - the food, the premise, the music, the service, the elevators, the door locks, the pools... The one exception are the rooms which are clean, nothing special but acceptable. That said, if you are able to get a cheap rate to sleep over at night, and will be spending your time at the beach, eat at the restaurants on the strip, and explore Mayan Riviera I can see it workout. The question then is why are you no just getting an airbnb or if you want your family to have access to pool to stay at a no frills accommodation - cost effective places may not be all inclusive but can be solid - there are multiple grocery stores in the area. On our last day I took a picture of our sink (see pic), which symbolically summarized the stay at this place for me. The faucet was off-center from the sink, it works but like everything else at the resort has not been built with attention to detail nor cared for to maintain an acceptable quality.

The entertainment staff was amazing

It was my first time staying in Cancun, i really enjoyed it and the entertainment staff made it even more enjoyable everyday. I was always excited to see what they were going to do each day, and i loved how they always got everyone involved. Special shout out to Orpha Andrew and Luis ma, they were so happy outgoing and welcoming and made our trip that much better:) awesome job guys you all deserve 5 stars! Thank you for a great time. -Danielle Raymond
