All Inclusive Playa Sandos

The resort was very clean and relaxing. The layout of the resort lends to a fair amount of walking. There are plenty of specialty restaurant which were actually pretty good. The buffet restaurant wasn't bad and had a wide variety of different foods. However, there really wasn't much for Mexican food at the buffet. There is a small coffee shop kind of hidden away in case anyone is missing their Starbucks. The rooms were very clean and housecleaning did a good job restocking the refrigerator and towels. The entire staff was police and accommodating. There are some areas that normal guests are not welcome unless you join their elite member status. The beach was clean and they had kayaks for people to use. Snorkel equipment was not offered but could be purchased at the gift shop. The mixed drinks barely contained any alcohol so I'd suggest bringing a bottle of rum to add to your drinks or just get the beer or the wine. We ventured off the resort a few times and it was very easy to get a taxi and the area seemed very safe. Overall, for the price, this was a very good place to get out of the snow and enjoy the beach and sun.

Beautiful Beach, Decent Resort

The beach is gorgeous with white sands and clear water. The resort was not too crowded because it's massive size and quite a lot of walking or waiting for trolley. Most of the resort was only available to people with special wristband colors that they try to upsell you right when you arrive which is a huge turnoff. They keep calling you in the morning daily and leave notes to come talk to them. The food and shows are mediocre at best and the "nightclub" is non existent. The liquor selection is decent and only beer is Dos Equis. Our room was small, outdated, and had black mold but the resort was "full" and we couldn't switch rooms.

Highly recommended!

My wife and I decided to return to Sandos Plyacar for our anniversary after being there 3 years ago. We were really pleased to see the great changes they have made. Also the price package through Cheapcaribbean.com was an additional help! Clean white sand beach, accommodations excellent and a HUGE amount of great food. However, too much loud music in all restuarants and pool area! Could use a lower volume!

Sunrises are breathtaking

Great Vacation

I love this resort and I will keep coming back. I'm a huge animal lover and I like that they rescue animals and take care of them. The food is fabulous and there are lots of restaurants. I'm not much of an alcohol drinker, but I do like that they have champagne. The only thing t don't like is that they roped off parts of the beach and the swimming pool for club members only. There are other pools but they are filled with kids.That is my only complaint. Great job Cheap Caribbean, you are the best!!!

What's to Love

The All Playa Experience has themed beach parties every day of the week, with music, food and games that get downright competitive! Oh, and the beach is to die for.

Their brand new infinity pool and five-slide water park for endless family fun!

 

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!)
