I don't see any likelihood for Mars' whole surface to ever be transformed into a shirtsleeve environment where people could live outside without protective clothing and equipment to provide breathable atmosphere, thermal insulation, and protection from solar radiation.
However, I do not see any reason that suitable contained habitats could not be created on Mars that would allow "farming" of food with the available solar light, using and recycling water obtained from Mars and soil obtained from Mars, with recycled biowaste becoming nutrients for the farming. The human living quarters might well be underground to provide radiation shielding most of the time, with limited time spent on the surface (under a pressurized dome) to tend to the farming chores. Limited walks outside the habitat(s) could be performed in suitable space suits.
It would not be a vacation resort type existence. It would probably have substantial psychological effects on members of our species that was evolved to roam freely in open spaces with wide views. A feeling of confinement is a real psychological issue. From my own experience: when interviewing applicants for a job in Maryland, United States, one person who lived in Hawaii applied and I asked him why he would choose to live in Maryland when he was living in the "paradise" of Hawaii. His response was that being limited to an island, no matter how nice, bothered him and made him feel limited and bored. I am not sure I would agree with his issues if I lived there, and have never had the opportunity to find out. However, I can understand how that feeling could become very intense for someone living on Mars in an artificial habitat, especially if that was clearly going to be the situation for their entire lifetimes. And, even if the first colonists were preselected to be psychologically adaptable to the Mars colony situation, if there were following generations born and raised there, I suspect there would be some members of future generations who simply could not psychologically contend with that environment, especially if they were able to see videos of life on Earth that show existence here at least as vibrant as it is today.
So, I suspect that an isolated colony on Mars would become psychologically unstable unless there was some sort of escape to Earth for those who found they could not stand it there on Mars. Even the Amish communities here on Earth have a process that provides for members reaching adulthood to experience life beyond the limits of the Amish community and then make their own individual choices about whether to stay or leave. Unsatisfied people who cannot leave a situation create social instability.
