The tapas craze has swept the world, even hitting Cancun hard. At El Sol Tapas & Restaurant you can enjoy a new take on the food fade, while sipping on award winning wine and experiencing excellent service.

The restaurant primarily caters to guests staying at the resort where it's located, but if you're staying at another hotel or resort nearby, you can enjoy lunch or dinner if you call ahead and request a reservation.

El Sol Tapas & Restaurant

El Sol Tapas & Restaurant has brought the concept of tapas to a whole new level by creating a menu of Mediterranean favorites with a pre-Hispanic Mexican twist made from fresh, local ingredients that can be shared and sampled. Pair each dish with a glass from the award winning wine cellar.

Among other options, the menu features tapas, and a variety of diverse flavors, including influences from both Mediterranean and Mexican cuisines. When it comes to the level of formality, the setting here is informal. Diners are welcome to come by to enjoy dinner only, so plan ahead to catch their brief service.


Rustic yet elegant, El Sol Tapas & Restaurant is truly unique.


This restaurant is on the premises of Belmond Maroma Resort & Spa, which is found 9.8 miles northeast of Playa del Carmen, a city in the Riviera Maya; it's nine and a half miles (15 kilometers) to the south west of Puerto Morelos.

Guests who'd like to merge their visit to the restaurant with some pleasant sightseeing opportunities should enjoy visiting Atlantida at Parque Nizuc. Do note, however, that if you plan to visit, taking a taxi or having a rental car may be necessary, as it's 22 miles to the north-northeast.

Visitors to the area should come across a couple of outdoor activities in the area, like Iberostar Playa Paraiso Golf Club and Maroma Beach. The latter option is the most convenient spot to visit the beach, and is in the same area as the restaurant.
