Marina Sol or Cabo Villas

We are deciding between these two over Xmas. Marina Sol is $1000 less expensive for the week. We are 2 parents with 4 college age kids. Want to walk to beach and nightlife. Pros/cons of both???

Marina Sol is not on the Beach. But it is right behind the Cabo Villas and a short walk to the beach, and a Shorter walk to town.

For $1000 take Marina Sol. You can park yourself on the beach bars which are 2 X 1 all day. They will give you loungers and shade free as long as buy some food or an occasional drink. Or just enjoy the onsite pool.

Have not yet stayed at Marina Sol, only been to a birthday party there over 20 years ago. I am about to book it for this summer and from my research I found that the units can vary in quality. I'm going with Premier Properties as they seem to have nicer units from the reviews that I found. So far the response from Premier has been outstanding.

I've stayed at Marina Sol and love it. If the rate was the same I would personally still stay there, the grounds are well maintained with a very nice pool and courtyard. The units are very spacious, and they enforced the no lounge saving policy when we have stayed there.

That said, it is an older complex and some units can be quite dated so make sure the room you are staying in has been updated. They also do not tolerate excessive partying or noise.
