My boyfriend and I (and another couple) just got back from GR Caribe by Solaris. It was our first time doing an all-inclusive so we were a bit skeptical in the beginning. Luckily it turned out amazing. The resort itself is beautiful and very well maintained. We had an lagoon view room which ended up being perfect as we were on the 6th floor and opening up our front door we had beautiful views of the sunrise and the ocean. We weren't able to get a King size bed but they were more than happy to switch our room. Of course we loved our rooms location so they suggested pushing the 2 double beds together to make a huge bed for us!!! The staff is great, no problems what so ever and they are all very friendly with a smile on their faces. We enjoyed learning spanish from the waitors and they always had a drink in our hands. The food was great, but we found ourselves eating almost every dinner over at the Solaris buffet which was awesome because they switch it up every night to accommodate everyone. After dinner we usually went to the show at Solaris which we all really enjoyed. It was mostly dancing and the announcer is pretty funny.
I wouldn't reccomened this resort to spring-breaker type crowd as it is pretty quiet and there weren't many people our age. Even next door at the Solaris there didn't seem to be to many party-people although the Solaris does offer rides to the clubs every night. We went to COCO BONGO which was the most amazing club I've ever been to!! Defiantly go if you are into the bar scene, you wont be disappointed.
There was always something to do and the day trips are all very well priced. We booked our trip through Pablo at the Solaris travel place to go to Coba. Defiantly go if you want to climb the temple (absolutely amazing, but wouldn't recommend it for small children due to the safety factor of falling). We also got to go kayaking, repelling, zip-lining and swimming in a cenotes. Other than day trips, you can catch the bus out front of the resort, which costs 8 pesos 50, or one american dollar. It is safe and takes you down the strip to the mall, the market or the resturaunt/ bars. There are tons of resturaunts to experience if you want something other than resort food. The mall was also amazing, as there was tons of shops, a boardwalk by the water, and a river running through it!
Make sure you bring either pesos or small american bills to give as tips. We brought just $20 US bills and often had trouble changing it into smaller bills in order to tip (can change at front desk, but they often didn't have enough change). Make sure to always tip!!!!
All in all a great vacation, great weather, great beaches, great resort, and great staff. I will defiantly be recommending!!!!
