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.)
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 All rooms are suites, with kitchenettes, but decor-wise they are a bit out-of-date.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.
