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
We visited the resort during the first week of July with a group of 15 people. Our group consisted of 6 adults, four 18-20 year olds, 4 older teens and one 11 year old.
The resort is designed for a more quieter crowd as things are fairly calm at night. Meaning there is very little to no nightlife. The restaurants on property are very nice and like everyone else has said, if you don’t leave the resort there are enough choices on property.
The main purpose of my review is to give a major shout out to Rodolfo our Artisan. I highly recommend that if you plan on doing any excursions or wish to leave the resort for some meals- you become friendly with your artisan. If you are lucky you will get assigned Rodolfo. As you would imagine it is very difficult to move 15 people around anywhere, let alone arrange for last minute transportation and reservations at some very cools spots. Rodolfo, was there to handle everything we needed and was a key player in making our vacation perfect.
Angelina,the chief concierge, was helpful on our preparation before the trip and extremely accommodating once we arrived. Angelina, you run a great team and wish you nothing but the best.
Service overall was impeccable and highly recommend this resort. If you do, ask for Rodolfo, trust me your vacation will be that much better
The Solaz is much more than a hotel/resort, it's truly a fully immersive cultural experience. They are big on architecture, arts and tying it all into the Baja culture, which truly makes it feel so special while you're there. We stayed in a Grand Gallery room which was amazing. We had a hammock and plunge pool on our balcony, which was really nice. Even the standard guest room had a full sea view which I think is incredible. If you go during whale season (Dec-Mar) you can see whales just by sitting on your patio! (I plan to return, just for this!)
The dining was great, they have a gorgeous restaurant right on the water and the best is when everything lights up at night, it's simply stunning. There were guests of all ages and families as well. While we were a couple, it still felt very private and romantic. We also booked a really unique excursion with Paul, their (incredible) chief concierge, to Rancho Santa Rita where there is natural thermal springs! We swam in beautiful natural pools and had the most out-of-this-world packed gourmet picnic lunch. We even crossed the Tropic of Cancer and stopped for pics. So unique. Another major highlight at Solaz was their museum! They have an actual MUSEUM on property where, if you're a history buff, you could easily spend a lot of time. I just couldn't get over how richly unique the overall experience was. I can't wait to return!
We just got back from a family vacation with our 8 month old. This is a very modern and beautiful property, very thoughtful design and layout. It has 3 properties on one -with the hotel, timeshare and residences. The mere size of the property makes it appears never too crowded. The service and staff at the main hotel are superb.
Majority of the restaurants left to be desired for this level of property - very big miss / opportunity. I will give the property credit as it has only been open for less than a year - but training the staff at some of the nicer restaurants and the overall quality of food could be improved.
Paul, Vladimir and others at the property were top-notch and white glove customer service and overall engagement with guest.
Excellent resort. Great customer service. Oceanfront property. Very good restaurants. Several infinity pools. Large Kids/ Teen entertainment area. La Deriva is a restaurant on the property with seating right on the ocean front. Valet was very helpful in arranging activities. Amazing experience. Would go back again
I celebrated my 40th birthday at Solaz and was blown away at the level of service, personalization, and extreme care they took in making my stay an unforgettable one! Paul, head of the concierge, surpassed all of my expectations for celebrating my special stay. He was extremely attentive prior to, during, and after my stay at the resort. The upgraded room to a plunge pool room was an extreme treat and I will always choose this type of room if its available. Having a private outdoor shower was amazing to use during the day as well as bluetooth music piped throughout different places in the room at your choice. Jasmine at the lobby, Edson as my Artisan, Nelson and Hugo at Mako, Jaime, and a host of others made me feel like I was the most important guest they had. From the small special requests they fulfilled to the surprises they provided during my stay, I don't think I will ever be able to go anywhere else to celebrate birthdays from now on! The Solaz is absolutely, positively, one of the best Marriott hotels I've been to in the world!
