It is amazing how quickly Cabo is bouncing back just weeks after Hurricane Odile!

Many Los Cabos Hotels and Resorts will be Fully Operational By October 25th.

Increasing numbers of Los Cabos hotels are reopening well in advance of peak season, which gives credence to the Los Cabos Hotel Association’s assessment that the majority of resorts will be fully operational by year’s end.  – Claudette Covey, TravelPulse Mexico editor

Solmar Hotels & Resorts  announced on a press release that all five properties – Grand Solmar Land’s End Resort & Spa; Playa Grande Resort & Grand Spa; the Ridge Luxury Villas at Playa Grande; Solmar All-Inclusive Resort & Beach Club; and Hotel Quinta del Sol – will be fully operational by Saturday October 25th 2014.

The properties officially re-opened their doors on Oct. 12, welcoming the first guests back in style; mariachis played lively music while employees from every department – from housekeeping to executive management – came out to greet guests with a heartfelt “Welcome Home!”

The Solmar properties were closed for a short period of time following Hurricane Odile, which came ashore in Los Cabos on Sept. 14. Solmar’s owners and executive team took advantage of the time following the storm, when flights were unable to fly into the destination, to clean up, rebuild and refurbish the resorts to their original beauty.

“Our properties are better than ever,” says Ricardo Orozco, managing director of Solmar Hotels & Resorts. “Our dedicated staff worked hard over the past month to ensure that all of our facilities and amenities were back in action for our guests to enjoy as of Oct. 12. By Oct. 25, we will be back to 100 percent and back on track with our plans pre-Odile.”


Grand Solmar Land’s End, the hardest-hit of the five Solmar properties, is back up and running smoothly with nearly all amenities intact just one month after the storm. Don Luis Restaurant, the resort’s fine dining option, is serving breakfast, lunch and dinner through Oct. 25, when Grand Solmar’s signature La Roca restaurant is expected to reopen.

The property is also working on upgrading the Sea Spa area located at the breathtaking Land’s End Terrace, which is scheduled to be ready by the end of 2014. In the interim, guests will enjoy the full Sea Spa menu in a special VIP Spa Suite at Grand Solmar and are invited to enjoy the spa facilities at sister property Playa Grande Resort, whose spa is operating normally and offering an extensive menu of spa services and treatments.

Also new to this public event space is a full outdoor kitchen, which will be able to serve wedding receptions and events of up to 40 people right under the Cabo moonlight, preparing delicious cuisine right on Land’s End Terrance.

At Playa Grande Resort & Grand Spa, guests will enjoy five fully remodeled pools as well as a refurbished hotel exterior, complete with fresh paint, new roof tiles, palapas, resort façade, and beautiful new landscaping. The Kids Club on property is undergoing updates but an array of family-friendly activities are available on-site.

Solmar All-Inclusive Resort & Beach Club, the founding hotel in the Solmar collection, is updating its popular Tejaban Restaurant, which is scheduled to reopen by the end of October. Meanwhile, guests of Solmar can take advantage of a new all-inclusive package which includes restaurants and facilities at sister property Playa Grande, their restaurant Brigantine and the spectacular lobby bar.

Hotel Quinta del Sol, located in the heart of Cabo San Lucas, has remained opened for reservations since the storm hit in September. The hotel has been the home base for the CFE (Federal Commission of Electricity) employees as they work to restore power to the entire region as well as members of the Mexican Armed Forces.
