    Great family New Year's vacation

    Our family recently had a great vacation experience in Cancun at the GR Solaris resort. Our family of 4 with 2 kids (7 and 10 years old) stayed 4 nights over New Year's Eve 2019. The best experience at the hotel was the smiling, helpful staff with a close second being the warm ocean Cancun location for a winter time get away. The ocean view room was excellent as we enjoyed relaxing briefly on the balcony to enjoy the view. I'd like to mention the great job by the Mini Club people working with kids, especially Claudia and Montse. The servers, activity leaders, and entertainers were also very good. The whole family enjoyed spending a lot of time in the pools and some time on the beach and ocean. We stayed at the resort except for a great day out to do the Dolphin Discovery experience on the Isle Mujeres. The time flew by so quickly when we were having fun, that we didn't find time to the rest of Cancun much. I had expected the Kids Club to be great for younger children, but both our daughter and son enjoyed the time and activities enough that they were super excited to return the next day for more (pinatas, making food, crafts). The food was pretty good overall and the adults especially enjoyed a dinner at Zai, plus the New Year's Eve buffet and show was wonderful. We also saw the fantasy show another night and it was enjoyable - especially for the kids. I would recommend others to give it a try as this resort helped us create a family vacation with wonderful memories.

    It's OK But Not Great

    The resort is clean and convenient. The all inclusive buffet meals and drinks are what you'd expect for the price point. Out of the week, two disappointments stand out: 1) the staff urged my college-age son to go with THEM to a dance club. The club was listed as one of the resort-sponsored activities. Several of the young staff told my son how they'd meet in the lobby and how they all would go. I was asked to go too, but I told the staffer, "who wants to go clubbing with their mom, no. He'll just go." The charge was $60 U.S. When my son returned, he told me it was only him and one of the staff. That person took him to the club, showed him which bus to take home AND LEFT him there. Very unprofessional, mendacious and disappointing. 2)We made reservations at the Asian restaurant, "Zai". The food was so bad, we couldn't finish it. The sweet n sour pork was breading with tiny pieces of overly cooked, disintegrated meat. The chicken in the curry dish was not freshly cooked and the curry sauce was watery. Since I didn't know where else to stay, GR Solaris worked; however, there wasn't enough appeal to motivate me to return.

    Aqua high intensity training w/ Jorge

    Excellent aqua training class with Jorge! If you want a workout to burn off those excess calories from your vacation, this is the stop to make. 45 minutes well worth the effort. Come in, stop by make a change for yourself. Work with Jorge!

    Best Vacation Ever!

    At the beginning of January I stayed at the GR Solaris with 3 of my closest friends, and we would not have had as much fun as we did without all the staff at the resort. Not only is it beautiful, very clean, and has a nice view, but has the friendliest staff and tons of activities to participate in. Fernando with the entertainment staff in particular was wonderful and got us involved in lots of activities that created the best memories. He is very outgoing, full of great energy, and very fun to be around. Thank you GR Solaris for an unforgettable vacation and we can’t wait to come back!

    You can hear every single word and laugh of your neighbors...

    We were happy with the food and customer service, the room was clean, but outdated. Thank you to all personnel in Rosmarinus, Cafe Solaris and Deli! We were really disappointed with the thickness of the walls, when you can hear you neighbors at 1 am laughing and partying in the room. A lot of young adults act like they are only one staying at the hotel: screaming, laughing in hallways. Front Desk was useless in helping us with the situation with our neighbors. I do not recommend the GR Solaris only because of the audibility problems...
