Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • On the beach, within walking distance of the marina
  • All rooms are suites with kitchenettes and private balconies or terraces
  • Pool with a swim-up bar and separate adults-only pool
  • Spa, parts of which are on the beach
  • El Trebol serves three meals a day, plus drinks
  • Within walking distance to several trendy restaurants (all-inclusive plan allows access to sister restaurants)
  • Themed nightly entertainment
  • Free Wi-Fi and free one-time laundry service

Cons

  • Rooms are not particularly up-to-date, with unexceptional furniture and tube TVs
  • Fitness facilities are off-site (though within walking distance)
  • All-inclusive rates do not include transportation to and from the hotel
  • Beach can get very crowded with families

Bottom Line

This mid-range all-inclusive property is on the smaller side, so guests get all of the perks of an all-inclusive in a more intimate environment. It also means guests don't get multiple food choices -- there is just one restaurant at the hotel (though guests are entitled to eat free at a few nearby restaurants as well). The real highlight is the hotel's beachfront location, within walking distance of the marina and downtown. All rooms are suites, with kitchenettes, but decor-wise they are a bit out-of-date. The bathrooms show some wear and tear, and the bedrooms feature old, small tube TVs. Although the pool has a swim-up bar, the Solmar mainly attracts families to its (crowded) beach and nightly entertainment offerings.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Right on the beach, a short walk to the marina and downtown

The Solmar is right on the beach Playa Solmar. The waters are a beautiful turquoise, but the beach is almost always crowded -- with hotel guests, cruise ship revelers and pushy vendors. The Solmar is set off from Cabo by beautiful cliffs, so it feels secluded, yet it's just a 10-minute walk to downtown.

At the southern tip of Mexico's Baja Peninsula, Cabo San Lucas -- a beach town on the stretch of coastline collectively known as Los Cabos (The Capes) -- has long been a popular vacation spot for sun-worshipping party seekers. (Hence, the nickname Cabo San Loco.)

  • 42-minute drive to Los Cabos International Airport
  • 2-minute walk to the Marina
  • 5-minute walk to the point where boats leave for the famous Playa del Amor
  • 10-minute walk to downtown's restaurants and nightlife
  • 5-minute drive to the historic stone church, Iglesia de San Lucas, established in 1730
  • 12-minute drive to the Cabo San Lucas golf course

 Bottom Line

This mid-range all-inclusive property is on the smaller side, so guests get all of the perks of an all-inclusive in a more intimate environment. It also means guests don't get multiple food choices -- there is just one restaurant at the hotel (though guests are entitled to eat free at a few nearby restaurants as well).
