                  The beach is beatiful. The pool and common areas are ok. It is located close to PLaya del Carmen Town (5 u$ taxi)

                  The bedrooms are not so clean. We found a chips package open inside of the desk, I asked houskeeping and reception to remove it.. several times. They never did. The bedroom smelled horrible. Terrible Humidity .. I did not feel comfortable in the bed. Yhe sheets and cover did not look very clean. The hotel is big (my room was 10 minutes walk from the beach and area where everythings is going on). The food was bad. Not variety, poor quality. The reservation system for dinner did not work.. and even in the "best" restaurants the food wasnt good enough.

                  Our second trip here and will return. Beautiful grounds, gorgeious beach,and all the staff is super. Can't say enough good things about the resort. Would highly recommend it to anyone Some friends have already gone and feel the same way. Great place for families to get together, with lots of acitivies for all ages.

                  I prefer the Fantasia buffet to the gourment restaurants. Feel the service is superior and you can choose what you want. For cooking in the quantities they have to prepare is excellent. My daughter's birthday fell on one of our days there and they made a wonderful birthday cake for her and sang Las Mananitas.

                  We enjoyed everything the club offered.

                  We have no complaints at all. Our stay there went beyond all expectations.

                • Family with children
                  8.2

                  The food and facilities were very good. The Kid's place was fun for our daughter. The WiFi was more available than advertised, you could do any low bandwith stuff in the lobby.

                  Like other all inclusives, the liquor was of subpar quality.

                • Family with children
                  7.8

                  Excellent location at the end of Playacar close to the jungle.Nice resort with all facilities inside (pool, restairants, activities, animation, cash dispenser). Enough room for everyone no rush for chairs around the pool or at the beach. Friendly staff.

                  We had a select room chosen for its location beachfront and renewed room. Nothing really exciting about the room itself (no slippers, so bathrobe, no specific toiletries etc...), and the room still needs remodelling (partially remodeled).

                • Couple
                  10.0

                  We were on our Honeymoon and everything was great! Room with ocean view was lovely, food was amazing with selection of a la carte restaurants, location is brilliant. All inclusive programm is very good. Two last days it was raining but even in a weather like that there was a lot to do in the hotel. Would reccomend it to everyone.

                • Older travelers
                  10.0

                  We had a great oceanfront/oceanview room that was very centrally located to the pool, beach and restaurants.

                  At times it seemed like the bartenders were expecting to be tipped which really shouldn't be the case at an all inclusive. The resort has many spots where there is a step up or a step down. This might be a bit tricky for kids or the elderly. I am neither but missed a step nevertheless and fell. The hotel staff was very attentive and cooperative when dealing with my fall but those who walk with an aid may have some trouble navigating the steps.

                • Family with children
                  9.6

                  i liked the food and the fact that drinks and food was available all the time . Its a very big hotel and still the pool area was always clean ,bathrooms in public areas always clean and good smell,dinning area clean and enough food...

                  the fact that we could not dine in the restaurants early and reservation were available only from 19:30 and ahead which is not a convenient hour to dine with young children.

                • Older travelers
                  8.8

                  Very friendly and helpful staff that were usually conveniently but dicreetly close by. We can mention, Saul (Mediterranean), Saul (Spa), Manuel (buffet), Jasmine (plaza) amoung many, many others. The entertainment group was very active and looked genuinely interested in their task. The French restaurant was definately the best amoung your open restaurants (the Italian was closed). I was pleased that in spite of open bar there were no incidents of obnocious drunken behavior. You keep the grounds neat and tidy. I think it is good you endeavor to keep it family friendly.

                  Room was very damp. This could be because we preferred no fan or ac and condensation formed on the floor and ceiling making some of our clothes in the closet wet. The ac was difficult/uncomprehendible to operate. The Brazilian "a la carte" is perhaps stretching it because it was a salad bar and no choice on the main course (except by denying/accepting the 9 grilled meats/vegtables served to everyone). No one returned my calls prior to our arrival. I made these to the number on your internet site and when no one answered I was transfered to an answering machine and left a message. You should have at least responded by email. Even though independant operators like tour guides promote from your property you should be aware of complaints guests might have for them because it reflects the image of Sandos Playacar just the same. For example were told that our it was only 45 minutes to Tulum for the quided tour but it took two hours to get their because we had to do an extensive pick up round. Guests should be warned. I would prefer some options with more serious culture presentations - evening lecture, Mayan story telling, solo-musician perhaps. What about a place with a view to play the card game bridge, even arranging simple duplicate tournaments?

                  White sand and warm sea. Spa facility great but too cold in most areas.

                  Water in the spa too cold. Jets were working all day but hardly anyone in the pool as too cold. The jacuzzi was wsrm enough though.
