    Great vacation, all the staff were friendly and helpful. Property was very well laid out, adults section was very quiet. Loved the social programs, esp the spin classes with Mario and the spa massages were very professional and relaxing. Will definitely return.

    Amazing Staff

    I have just returned from a stay at The Sandos, Playacar. I wanted to say a massive thank you to all the staff down at the beach buffet. Considering the hotel was closing down due to the Corova Virus your staff remained very cheerful and upbeat. A big thank you to Mariza Dzib, Gloria, Avia, David, Manuel and Jhanely. Wonderful always smiling and welcoming.

    Early Holiday

    We booked Sandos for a two week holiday form the 10th of March to the 24th but unfortunately had to cut our stay short by two days due to flight changes. We stayed in room 1330 which had side sea view and pool view. the room was spotless and very comfortable. The food in the restaurants was very well presented and very tasty this applies to all the restaurants we tried. The staff were very friendly and very helpful a big thank you Domingo in the main buffet restaurant who looked after us very well. As we had to cut our holiday short we needed the help of concierge for new tickets and other documents to be printed. We would like to give a big THANK YOU to Taylor for all her help. All we can say is we had a fantastic stay at Sandos and would highly recommend it.

    I loved the service and the food. The waitress Elena is awesome! The Mexican wine is one of my favourite. I ordered Monte Xanic Calixa and it is excellent. Very rich and flavourful. Thank you very much, Sandos!
