Beautiful beach out front and a very large lagoon behind us, both visible from our ojne-bedroom balcony
We had a HUGE one-bedroom that was larger than the last two-bedroom apartment I lived in. There was nightly live entertainment, and we did not expect to see this level of talent in the dancers in Cancun. Maid service was great, with the pleasant surprise of towels in the shapes of animals. There was a very pleasant staff and great food.

The food selection is great, with seven restaurants to choose from and the poolside barbeques available all day so you don't have to leave the pool.

They provide you with free transportation from the airport upon your arrival, but you have to go onto their website (www.clubsolaris.com) to reserve 72 hours prior. The resort offers shows and dinner every night at 6:30pm, and then another show without dinner at 8:30pm. There’s usually some type of activity going on by the pool at the Royal Tower that is lots of fun.
Each day you can have breakfast on the bottom floor of the hotel in the Royal Tower. Las Fluentes is the name I believe. It’s a buffet-style breakfast from I believe, 6 to 10:30am. You can get just about anything breakfast there. There is very good service, good food, and a friendly staff.
If you like to lay by the pool, the best thing to do is to go put your towel on a lounger before 8am, or else they will all be gone. Everyone does this, and I really don’t think it’s fair, but I don’t see how they can control this. The beach area is not that big, but you can go down anywhere on the beach if you want. They have one bar that opens at 11am down on the beach. No activities were going on, so it wasn't that much fun. A lot of vendors try to sell you jewelry, jackets, etc. Make sure the silver has 925 or 926 on it. This means that it's real. You can get real good deals.
Hold onto your towel, or you’ll have to pay $35. Also, if you lose your wristband, you have to pay $70 for a new one. You’re towel usually has a number on it somewhere, so that’s how you will know it’s yours.
Overall, this place is hopping.

The room had a beautiful ocean view. The service was the best. The hotel had the best of both worlds: if you wanted stuff to do, it had activities during the day and shows at night; but if you wanted to relax, the ocean is steps away and there were other pools with less activities. Something for everyone

RCI check-in is on the seventh floor and you are immediately assigned a "Personal Representative". We had a one-bedroom unit on the fourth floor with a large balcony giving us a view of not only the glorious turquoise Caribbean, but also of the Nichupte Lagoon, right across the road. Our unit was very spacious with a king size bed and a separate sitting room adjoining the bedroom. In addition, there was a murphy wall bed in the large living room. There was as well a mini "mini kitchen" with a small refrigerator that was stocked daily with four beers, four bottles of water and four sodas (part of the mandatory all inclusive).
The only thing lacking was a large enough bathroom. We found this to be quite small with no shelves or cupboards for anything, barely even a toothbrush. The unit otherwise had very ample closet and bureau space. Each day the maid would surprise us with different arrangements of "animal" towels. One day two swans forming a heart, another a different version of swans, an elephant and daily as well the colorful bedspread and crisp white sheets were arranged in different decorative fashions. The staff could not have been more attentive. Absolutely everyone was helpful, pleasant, cheerful and seemed to enjoy working there.
There were six main restaurants, three of which were full buffets where often your main course (be it breakfast or dinner) was cooked to your specifications as you watched. As well there were three "sit and be served" restaurants plus a snack bar at each of the pools. The menus had a lot of variety and the food was excellent. There are two "towers," the older Caribe and the newer Royal. We were in the Royal Tower but preferred the pool at the Caribe, as it was quieter with less children and not as loud and boisterous music.
They made checking out very easy, allowing us to deal with it the night before to avoid the busyness of the next morning. Also, because we were moving to a different resort which did not allow check-in for several hours, we were allowed to continue wearing our wristbands which entitled us to food, pool privileges and their "Hospitality Room," which was complete with showers, shampoo, hair dryers and keyed lockers. Talk about your "lifestyles." We felt totally pampered and would go back there in a minute.
