An August 2003 trip
to Cabo San Lucas by haleyinlr
Quote: The itinerary I received from RCI about my trip to Cabo San Lucas said the year-round temperature was 78 degrees. When I got there, it was 96 and humid. I found out later that August and September are the warmest months. I wasn't pleased.
Hotel | "Solmar Beach Resort"
The resort has three swimming pools throughout. The swimming pool by the beach has plenty of lawn chairs, quite a few umbrellas over chairs, and a swim-up bar. The bar also has an eating area, and sushi bar. There's a few tented areas set up also around the pool overlooking the ocean. Two restaurants are also in that area, and very good. The main lobby is quite spacious, with a little convenience store with snacks and souvenirs. There's also an area to arrange and buy different activities around Cabo San Lucas. When you check in you're given a pouch with a lock and key for the safe, and a
card(s) for beach towels. There's no grass on the premises, it's all sand, and very nice landscaping. Very interesting mountains are in the background of the resort. Some people go climbing on them.
There’s not much action on the beach, since you can't swim on it. They won't let you swim on it because of the tides. They're very dangerous. There's Lover's Beach, and others beaches close by though that you can go to.
You can get room service, but I'm not sure if it's 24/7. There's also a very nice gym on the 1st floor of the 'K' building. I believe it's only open at specific times, like 5am-11pm.
You can also rent a car from the hotel. Taxis are available 24/7, and usually cost about $6 to go downtown, and $10 to go on the other side of town. No vending machines are on the premises, whatsoever. If you come in late at night (say after 10pm), and you haven't eaten and your hungry or thirsty, make sure you stop in town before you get to the resort or you will end up having to pay $12 to take a taxi back and forth into town to get something to eat. The resort is enclosed behind iron fences, and a security gate is at the entry of the resort. Very safe. Downtown Cabo San Lucas is very safe also, so if you have to go down there late at night, don't be scared. Oh, one other thing, don't feed the kitty cats on the premises.
