Stay a month for less than the cost of a week at a high priced condo on the same beach and maybe have even a better view from any condo you pick.
We have a three day minimum, and generally rent by the week or month with prices that will leave you with lots left to spend for the many other things you might like to do in Cancun and surrounding areas, like Chichen Itza, Tulum, and Playa del Carmen. These properties are especially ideal for a retired couple or a family of four to just relax at the beach or have as a center of operation for your more active vacation.
The ocean view units are located on the sixth level just a few short steps from an elevator. The lagoon views are on the same hallway, just a half flight of stairs down.
All the units are pleasantly decorated with an equipped kitchenette with a large frost free refrigerator, microwave, cooking top, coffee maker, toaster, toaster oven, cooking utensils, and dishes, along with an iron, ironing board, and hairdryer. Enjoy free wireless internet in your room and turn on your flat screen high definition satellite television supplied through the condominium. The two ocean views have an additional satellite service supplied by the owner for 100 more television and radio channels, half English and half Spanish. The two lagoon units have a DVD player.
With a place of your own, you have lots of options. Stay in for a leisurely breakfast. Leave the pool or beach to grab snacks in a flash. Have lunch and dinner in your own place or choose from a large selection of restaurants for one excellent meal after another. There are several small restaurants and a convenience store in walking distance and a deli on the property that sells snacks.
Buses run continuously from a stop just a few feet past the entrance to the complex. Within ten minutes or so, you will start to see dozens of hotels and separate restaurants and five first class shopping centers with shops and restaurants. There are two new major chain grocery stores, Soriana and Chedraui, just minutes away. They have everything from fresh produce, meat, and fish to prepared foods and souvenirs.
Like tennis? We have a court on the property; simply sign up to use it. Like golf? There are two courses along the bus route, about five and twenty minutes away. Like nightlife? We do not have it or want it here in our peaceful condo, but get back on the bus or grab a taxi and you will find all kinds of happening places in the convention area, then leave it all behind for a good night sleep listening to the waves breaking on the shore.
Most likely we will be here to greet you personally and fulfill our aim to please you, our guests. To help us do that, we have property management professionals on site with a staff at your service all year round. They tend to the units, of course; but they can also arrange tours and give you lots of other helpful hints and services to make your stay with us the best one it can be.
We live at Solymar all winter, and we take special pride in our property. Contact us for information about all four of the properties.TripAdvisor property ID 3443970...Read more

I was a bit worried before arriving at the place because you never know for sure what you're going to get when your choose a place through the internet. Well, we did not regret at all!!
We rented the studio with ocean view in April for 2 weeks with my boyfriend, and it was just awesome. It truly looks like what you see on the pictures. The view was absolutely amazing. Having breakfast on the balcony everyday was really nice.
The people working for Shannon and Rogers were lovely. They are really here to help if you have any question.
We were provided with a huge bottle of mineral water when we arrived. There were towels and soap, like in a hotel, basically.
Cleaning was done and towels were changed twice.
The kitchenette had everything we needed to cook. However, no condiments so make sure you bring yours.
It is really a good price for what you get!
Oh yeah, and you get free wifi, which can be useful sometimes.
“Just finished our 2nd stay here. Wish it was longer”
Left on 03/06/2014 for a stay in February 2014 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Mar 6, 2014Stayed Feb 2014
We stayed 5 weeks last winter and all of Feb this winter. The 2nd stay was just as wonderful as the 1st one. We met a lot of people the 1st time and saw them again this trip Roger and Shannon make you feel right at home. A few more trips and I will think it is our home. The room, view, grounds, location, and people were all just great. It is the only place we have gone to twice and we are looking forward to another stay there. No surprises here. Saw many sun rises and lost many games of crib on the balcony. Was so nice to just sit and look at the view from it every morning.
One of our main goals is to make people feel at home, whether we are in residence or not. Our units are equipped with amenities that guests can use with ease, such as well equipped kitchenettes.
Solymar has a friendly atmosphere that many folks want to come back to. Some guests even make friends who stay in touch all year long and look forward to their time together here.
“pictures are the real deal”
Left on 11/14/2013 for a stay in November 2013 | Willy McLachlanReviewed Nov 14, 2013Stayed Nov 2013
Just arrived at the condo...the hospitably is great. We already feel at home. The view of the ocean is awesome!!! We booked on-line which is scary because alot of the time the pictures don't tell the real story.
They say on the beach but you get there and it's across the road ...Not ...this place we are on the beach with a beautiful view of the ocean.
Tomorrow ...time to check out the beach and get into vacation mode...

From the first email until my check out I was treated with friendship by very experienced hosts. I was given a good price and received everything I expected from the pics and more. The owners ( Shannon&Roger;) delivered everything they promised and more. We were offered airport pickup. They took us on their trips for groceries to walmart and costcos. We were invited to a welcome supper, christmas supper, super bowl supper and +++. I can go on for 10 more pages but I'll sound like an advertisement so let's move on.
I was weary at first because the Solymar all inclusive has very bad reviews but I found that I had nothing to worry about as I was in a private condo that was well equipped and I made my own meals so and the resort itself is well maintained. We enjoyed our stay so much that we extended for an extra month. My sister and her family came down on our recommendation and were more than happy. My daughter and husband along with our grandchildren are coming to meet us there upon our return for anther month during spring break.
All that being said, if your looking for a great holiday experience mixed with a friendly family environment you can't go wrong with Shannon and Roger.
P.S. We tip our hat to our hosts. You are unique.
Robert & Violaine
As our listing says, we spend the winters at Solymar. When we are there, we enjoy getting to know our guests and helping their stay with us to be as nice as it can be. We thank the reviewers for their kind comments.

“Best Condo we have ever had”
Left on 02/13/2013 for a stay in December 2012 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Feb 13, 2013Stayed Dec 2012
We got very lucky finding this lovely Condo. It is at the quiet end of Cancun. Busses are very reasonable to town and run often. Roger and Shannon help you out as often as they can. Communication when we were renting and before we got there was very easy. The best part is the condo is spacious, clean and well equipped. The pictures they send you are the real thing. The view is just magnificent. We spent many hours just watching the sun rise every day and the waves with that blue green water from the balcony. The beach is all sand and is right in front of the resort. Just go down the elevator and walk down to it. There is also a little nook in the hallway to watch the sun set over the Lagoon side. Just loved this place. Had a great Christmas and New Years there. We are going again next year.
Thanks Roger and Shannon for making it such a good holiday.
We thank the reviewer for this review. This couple is one of many who have found us and returned for more than one visit. We always include our guests in our festivities when we can. Of course, it is up to them if they want to participate - no obligation.
