What is the price to rent a cabana at the pool? Does it come with any extra perks and do you have to reserve in advance?

While the Grand Solmar is a beautiful facility, it fails as an all-inclusive and, in that regard, I could not have been more disappointed. Read on for details.

In the world of resorts, "all-inclusive" typically means to include lodging, meals and activities. The problem is in that at the Grand Solmar, there are no activities. The ocean waters are, essentially, inaccessible because of the surf and undertoe. There are no water/beach based activities. Nothing, nothing to do except sit out/lay out and bake by or float in the pools (which are gorgeous.) So, if you have been looking at all-inclusve resorts in the sense that it includes water/beach related activities, look elsewhere.

Even the fitness center is limited by its hours, closing at 4pm.

What is included in the all-inclusive are meals and drinks. The meals were variable, ranging from the worst margherita pizza ever at The Sports Bar to an incredible grilled fish taco at the same restaurant and the saddest brownie/ice cream dessert at the same location.

What was good: the facilities are beautiful and the grounds, including the pools and landscaping, are among the best I've seen.

What else is good: the staff, gracious and accommodating to a fault.

What else failed: I emailed the reservations support with a question about my paid-for airport transportation and received no response. When we arrived at the Cabo airport, Grand Colmar had no record of our paid transportion to the facility. And, when we were ready to leave the facility, had no record of our paid transportation back to the airport. I was told it was all a "system error".

The point: if you want a beautiful facility where you can float in some beautiful pools and bake in a beautiful oceanside setting, while doing nothing else, come here. If you had planned on engaging in outdoor/water-based activity, go elsewhere.

We are members of this resort and just absolutely love it. All rooms face the ocean and it has several lovely pools, swim up bars, quiet areas, Jacuzzi’s. You can swim in the infinity pool just stare out at the Pacific, watching whales in the distance during November to March. This year we came down during COVID-19, staff taking extra precautions to sanitize, social distance, taking temps at entrance, masks required. Very relaxing and wonderful staff. There are several restaurants on site and the food is delicious.

The Solmar was a nice surprise. The resort comprise of 3 properties all interconnected. The Solmar Resort, Grand Solmar at lands end and The Ridge Solmar. The property offers a myriad of accommodations from traditional hotel rooms, we had the one bedroom suites. Our suite was located within The Ridge property and facing the marina. I highly recommend this view. The marina view is lively. During the day, you can the mountains, in the evening the lights of Marina and town was enchanting. The proximity to the marina was great. No transportation needed as it is within 7 minute walk into town and marina. The room was grand, spacious and layout was like an apartment. The bedroom provided privacy, and the livingroom and kitchen area was big enough to entertain guests. The balcony was big and gave us such a nice place to relax in the morning and evening. The spa was excellent. The staff were all professional and courteous, first class customer service delivery. The amenities within the spa was calming and relaxing, the spa pool was peaceful and offered wonderful view. I highly recommend this spa.

The restaurant, we only tried 2: Lunch at the ridge pool and the steak restaurant. The ridge pool was very good. The guacamole was fresh and creamy, just absolutely delicious. The seafood ceviche was good, the salad bowl was also tasty. The steak restaurant was ok. The meat selection has a variety but the quality can be better. The ambiance was great. Its right by the water so, a romantic dinner would be nice there. The only unpleasant experience we had was at the steak restaurant. We arrived 30 minutes prior to closing, which is 9pm. I understand that due to COVID, limited guests on property that time would be different, but a 9pm closing is early. The staff made us feel unwelcome and rushed.

The Sport Bar crew you are all so much fun and the friendships we’ve created with all of you will hopefully last a lifetime!! Eduardo, thank you for taking the time to visit with us and speak Spanish with Chris, he truly feels special. Victor, Angel, Efrain, Alejandro, thank you for making our every wish come true!! I wanted pasta and Angel went to La Roca and brought the ingredients back to the Sports Bar and prepared it there!! Amazing! They all went over and beyond every single time we were there!!!! The Sushi Bar, Chris and I love the fun and romantic vibe you have all created!! Gerardo, you are AWESOME for always having champagne chilled for us as soon as we came up from the pool!!

Questions & answers about the pool

Answer from ataraxis
Aug 2020 |
I was there in July and I believe you can reserve them from Concierge. I think you do have to purchase something off of the Luxury Cabana menu in order to reserve them. The drink/food packages range from $135 USD up to $259 USD. I think that secures your cabana for the entire day and of course you can order anything you want after purchasing something off the cabana menu. If you dont show up within 90 minutes of your reservation the cabana is released and you are charged a no show fee of $50 USD. Tax is included in the prices, but not gratuity. Hope this helps.

They are not required at the pool or while walking around, at least they weren’t when we went. We just put ours on when we were speaking to our server, in an elevator with someone, etc...

There were very few kids there. Our kids are 7 and 10 and they had a blast. There are pools more for kids and an amazing kids club. No water slides or anything like that. One pool had some fun fountains. A couple pools allow floaties. Our kids had an amazing time, but it’s not a resort focused on kids, if that makes sense.

You are right, Solmar does frown on bringing cups of your own drinks to the pool areas. Still many people do. You might consider purchasing Solmar's drink first then do not through away the cup. If somehow the cup finds its way to your room it could be replenished from your on hand supply of refreshment before returning to the pool. The Solmar cups don't change, they always look the same. It is always wise to treat the pool servers well and be on the best of terms. This may include a little gratuity for any help they may provide. Such as not noticing when a Solmar cup shows up refilled. Hope you enjoy Lands End. I always do.
