SANDOS Christmas vacation

We selected the resort due to its proximity to Playa del Carmen for a family reunion. The assigned rooms (very ample and clean) were far from the Beach ( the best beach in the area) , and the transportation carts are too far and distant. The first days, the thematic restaurants were fully booked, ( note that both the Asiana and the Gauchos/Janeiro are outdated and somehow depressive due to their lighting and decoration). But on the 24th, the new Buffet opened up with an excellent menu, and extremely modern facilities ( albeit a little noisy). The Italian resturant was modern and with good food and service . It was surprising that we were able to find beach chairs at any time of the day. I would recommend the resort for families, and adults too.

Sandos Playacar Beach resort

Rooms: -Clean modern and spacious. Loved the jet tub with the open frosted french doors into the bedroom. -Marble floors, modern fixtures -Very comfortable bed with nice linens Hotel: -Enormous property. Worth taking a couple of hours to walk the grounds to learn where everything is. -Stayed in adult section which is a good distance form the beach. They need to have a more routine schedule with the shuttle service. Too few were operational at once. Walk was nice, but long. -Main buffet section near beach was always crowded and often had to wait. They need to expand the food service in that area. -Premium bars were excellent. Even the regular bars poured good drinks. Beaches: -Groomed/Raked everyday, clean and not over crowded, due to the size. Being the last property in the chain, along the coast makes it really nice if you want to take a walk and get away from people all together. Overall, would highly recommend. One of the best values out there.

We were thrilled!

We absolutely loved Sandos Playacar! The resort was an amazing value for what we paid. The beach and pools were all great and our service was fantastic. There were so many activities at the resort and many opportunities for fun outside too. The room smelled like mildew, but we were only there to crash at night. It didn't bother me too much. And the food was good but not amazing. Our favorite meal was breakfast. And of course the drinks were all very good! Our family plans on returning for Christmas next year.

Sandos Playacar Beach Resort

We came back from this resort one week ago and that was our third time during one year. We are in love with this place, read my review from May. Everything is so great. The beach is full of shade, no need to come there very early to get your spot under the umbrella. The entertainment is very professional, The staff working in this resort always tries to help. The restaurants on the premises are great and no need to make a reservations and no waiting time for to be seated. They also have great coffee shop. Last two times we loved breakfasts and dinners in the restaurants buffets. I cannot say the same at this time. The grand buffet is closed for reconstruction and there was always waiting line to the small buffet. The selection was limited compare to what it was before this visit and there were not themes every night like it used to be before. I believe the buffet issues will disappear shortly after reconstruction is ended. I forgot to mansion that they have a very good entertainment on a beach. I still recommend to spend your vacation in this resort.

What We'd Change

I found in order for me to get my favorite beach chair every day, I had to go to the beach at 6:30 to get the best seats (as I love lounging on the beach!)
