Love it! Posted Oct 6, 2013
This was our 5th year and we're going back again next year! Staff is wonderful and the wait staff in the Marco Polo restaurant is exceptional - the maitre 'd recognized us our first night and welcomed us back! Excellent menu choices and beautifully presented (some new and interesting additions this year)! Love the flaming Mayan coffee! Nice selection of dishes at breakfast. Poolside snack bar offers a great selection throughout the day. Fresh made pizzas poolside is a great new addition! Rooms super clean and very comfortable beds! Unfortunately, no vent fans in the bathroom. Also, young children were taking up the seats at the swim-up bar :-( Perhaps a separate bar where youngsters can get "froo-froo" non-alcoholic drinks? My BFF and I go to Royal Solaris because it is a smaller all inclusive resort right on the ocean. We're there to suntan, read, play cards, generally relax and be catered to. We're not clubbers, and we don't need to shop as at our age, our homes already have enough "stuff." There are vendors that set up at the resort but they aren't pushy, and if you want a keepsake or little gift to take home, they're available. We have learned how to avoid the timeshare folks just outside the lobby area, and this year they didn't seems as aggressive. If you're looking for a 5 star resort, this isn't it! However, if you want a place to relax, have good food and drinks, and be treated royally, I highly recommend the Royal Solaris!
