From the culinary cornucopia to its spa treatments, everything at this waterfront wonderland evokes the surrounding Baja Peninsula
Mexican beachfront resorts often conjure up images of palapas and palomas, but you’ll find nothing stereotypical at this nature-driven Golden Corridor haven—a spellbinding stack of quarry stone, granite, and marble. Sandwiched between a pair of rock beds, the sophisticated retreat seems to sprout out of the Sea of Cortez itself, and all 128 rooms maximize those ocean views with floor-to-ceiling glass doors, outdoor showers, and private plunge pools. If you’re in the mood to mingle, make your way to one of the public pools (there are five to choose from here, including a pair dressed in exquisite green granite) or stop by one of the property’s four restaurants, where executive chef Pedro Joaquin Arceyut preps just-caught fish, dry-aged steak, wood-fired flatbreads, and innovative salads with greens sourced from local biodynamic farms. Let’s not forget the resort’s 10,000-square-foot spa, which is the area’s only spa to offer thalassotherapy and well worth reserving a day for.
In the Area
Privacy is paramount at this seaside sanctuary, which is midway between the main hubs of Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo. While the dusty Carretera Transpeninsula isn’t exactly known for its swimmable beaches, this pristine stretch of shore is an exception. For a closer look at Baja California’s golden deserts, arrange botanical tours of Cactimundo and Wirikuta (the resort can assist), or partake in one of the area’s seasonal outings: whales visit the coast during winter and early spring, a weekly art walk dazzles visitors between November and June, and a revolving door of fishing tournaments lures avid anglers.
How to Get There
Let me start by saying I would stay at Solaz again for 3 reasons; The food was amazing, the atmosphere/location/landscaping was beautiful, and the service provided at the pool & restaurants was top notch. Outside of that our stay was very poor, one of the worst I have experienced and it was our honeymoon to top it off. The Artisan/Butlers that we had was absolutely useless, even when after having to move rooms 4-5 times (truly I lost track) we never heard from him for help moving our luggage even when we would text him the issues we were experiencing or ask him questions. The first morning of our stay the bathroom door shattered and we had to move rooms. Ordinarily this would not would be a none issue, I would expect the hotel to move our rooms quickly and be done with it. However, it took all morning to get a new room assigned, while waiting we got trapped into a horrible sales pitch for the Signature Suites. Stay away from the "museum" as it is purely phase one of this sales pitch. I wish the hotel would have warned us on this. We finally moved rooms just next door which was our desire as we loved our first room. The second room had a terrible smell and the main door was broken causing us to hear the loud highway noise, there was also no hot water. They took us to a third room which we requested to have a look at prior to us moving our belongings, good thing we did because when we walked in there were dirty dishes/used coffee cups on the counter. This was after they told us a supervisor had looked at the room on our behalf. At this point we asked to speak with the front desk supervisor and he was kind and quickly got us moved into an upgraded suite which was lovely. By this point it was around 9PM so after my husband looked at the room we moved our belongings again and unpacked anxious to settle in for the remainder of our stay. As we were preparing for bed I noticed the AC wasn't working, when we called the front desk they told us the entire Marriott property had no AC. At this point all my patience went out the door. We went to the front desk in our pajamas and got keys to stay for the night in the Signature Suites. The next morning we went back to the front desk asking what they could possibly do to fix our honeymoon. While the staff was always nice, I felt there was little to no action or corrections for all the mistakes. It took yet another 1/2 day to get us booked into a new room, this time they moved us into an upgraded suite at the Signature Suites side and said we could stay there for the remainder of the trip. While that was nice and we were finally happy with our room I felt they should have done more OR at least followed through to ensure the rest of the trip was good. We had to request housekeeping most days (both daily services & turn down) , we had to requests for new amenities each day (water, shampoo/conditioner, coffee, etc.), the jet tub did not work correctly, and concierge was not helpful AT ALL in helping make recommendations/bookings for us. I understand that we were the guests that everything went incorrectly with and things happen, AC's break, hot water is turned off.. things happen. What I was disappointed in is the lack of response and action from the staff. They have a beautiful resort but clearly there is some need to put in place better systems and a management team that steps in when they have guests who are having no luck with their stay. They made no attempt to correct our stay outside of the room upgrade, at that point I would have expected our first two nights (at the very least) to be taken care of and something (anything) to wow us and make up for the stay. At the end of the day I would of much rather stayed the whole time in our first standard room had things gone smoothly, been able to relax, and enjoy the entire honeymoon as we should have.
P.S. We were never sent a survey from the hotel as they show they do on their website, coincidence? Doubtful.
Amazing hotel. Architecture is stunning right when you check into the lobby. My wife and I stayed in a room close to the pool with a partial ocean view and plunge pool. I highly recommend the plunge pool rooms. Staff was very courtesy and eager to please. Food was delicious. We only ate at two places on the hotel grounds, both were very good. Really appreciate 24 hour late food options! If I am ever in Cabo again, will for sure book this place.
We booked the Razor trip to Wild Canon. There were four of us in a private tour by David and Carlos. They work with the Solaz Resort. It was a wild, dirty, fun ride to the Cabo Canyon and across the suspension bridge and back. all of us had a great time and I’d give the experience a 5 out of 5 rating., we’ve been coming to Cabo for 25 years and have done the ATV rides a number of times. This was more fun,
