60 birthday celebration
We booked this resort to celebrate my dads 60th birthday. ( actually travelled in 2015 but TripAdvisor doesn’t allow me to enter that date) We appreciated the extra care and attention given to this celebration with early notice. Our parents were upgraded to their best suite and thoroughly enjoyed the attentive care and celebration from the staff. My sister and husband and my husband and I also received room upgrades from our package. We booked an all inclusive and enjoyed the variety in food and drinks. We loved the Solana Colada. We celebrated at the Al la carte seafood restaurant on one night and although it was pricey, it felt worth it given all the other extras that the resort provided. The bar staff were friendly and attentive. The beach does have broken coral but we were advised in advance and packed water shoes. Got lost in the snorkeling, most enjoyable and even ventured further out to sea with the complimentary boat - deeper coral views. We also tried some of the other available water sports. Amazing holiday, friendly staff, made to feel special and valued with genuine gestures by staff. Nothing was made to seem as an inconvenience.
Trip of a lifetime! Absolutely amazing!
My husband and I returned to Solana Beach Hotel Belle Mar for a 2nd trip to paradise! We loved it last year and didn’t think it was possible for the hotel to exceed the already high expectations that we had to enjoy a much needed relaxing luxury holiday. We fell in love again with this amazing place! The staff were truly welcoming and dedicated to providing a warm, personal and professional service tailored especially to us. The food was great and varied. The rooms were simply beautiful with sea views and the surrounding natural environment is truly spectacular! Needless to say we will be returning again soon.
Lovely Very friendly hotel,Really lovely staff, great location, beautiful beach/costal walks
Very nice medium sized friendly hotel. Nice location and set in beautifully maintained gardens. All the staff at the hotel are very friendly and offer very efficient service from the wonderful House keeping ladies who kept my room spotless and replenished toiletries, towels and pool towels regularly (Umma and Primula) they always asked if everything was good in my room day and evenings. Thank you.The ladies and guys at the Indigo bar were excellent offering and attentive and friendly service at the bar and the pool service. Lunch on the deck at Indigo was always a pleasure. The food at the Buffet main restaurant was excellent, varied and a great choice of veg and non veg items , Mauritian, Indian and Continental flavours. Two complaints. 1.All Inclusive ..... Not really All Inclusive ...... too many items of food, drinks and restaurants excluded from the package and a supplement added. Only the Buffet was fully inclusive all other places to eat carried a surcharge on most items. Too many drinks had many exclusions and surcharge added. 2.Although the staff at the Cinnamon Buffet restaurant did extremely well under the pressure the service some times suffered badly and lunch times the service was unbearable, so i had lunch at Indigo from the limited all inclusive choices. Management need to review staffing levels and not just the profits. Staff were extremely helpful and apologetic that they could not provide the service they wanted to offer but they are stretched beyond their capabilities to provide a good service. Lack of sufficient staff at Cinnamon ruins the hotels high standards in every other area. Its the management responsibility to correct this fundamental part of customers enjoyment. Get the Buffet staffing levels sorted and you have 5/5
We spent 7 nights at Solano Beach and had a fantastic time. The service was absolutely amazing and everyone was so friendly. The food was delicious every meal and the entertainment was great. Would definitely recommend this resort!
Beautiful Friendly and relaxing
8 days at the Solana beach resort, set on a fairly narrow stretch of beach, warm sea over a coral reef, snorkelling is well worth a go, a myriad of sea life to see, wear surf shoes though. Initially given a second floor room, but no lifts, my wife has heart condition and stairs were an issue, quickly resolved by reception staff and following day were moved to ground floor. The setting is lovely, thatched roofed buildings beautifully maintained gardens, large open bar and terrace area to have a relaxing cocktail, and evening entertainment club singers and bands. Buffet restaurant had a great choice of meals themed nights Mauritian, Mediterranean, European etc. Breakfasts were plentiful hot and cold. Pomelo restaurant is waiter service and a la cart menu, even with your all inclusive package. All the food was excellent, apart from one meal which was below par, however management and chef redeemed themselves, the following day with a first class complimentary meal. We also suggested the use of hand sanitizer in the buffet restaurant, taken on board and implemented that same day. I cannot praise the whole team enough they were so friendly and accommodating. Lazing around the pool or along the beach drinks and snacks are bought to you by friendly and caring staff. The rooms are spacious and clean, with a huge bed. Plug sockets are mixed and varied depending on which room, from uk style, european and multi type. UK travellers should take 1 euro adaptor, to be on the safe side.
