We found everything to be first class. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. Grounds, pools, beach and restaurants were well maintained and kept. Food and drinks were very good. We particularly enjoyed eating at the buffet. Great food for the kids and adults. The workers were very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Sandos and we will return.

Had a great snorkeling trip with an outfit called deja vu where you could swim with sea turtles. They had a very clean workout area with pool. I also...

Stayed at the Sandos Playacar in December 2011 with our brother and sister-in-law. We all had a nice time, my brother in-law enjoyed sitting at the beach playing his Sax, the food was all really good, there were some problems with the reservations with the restaurants. It seems to me they need to update their computer system. Overall we all...

This was my second stay at the Sandos Playacar. I went in March 2011 and enjoyed it so much therefore, when I was booking this time around....why go elsewhere when you've found a place you love.

We spent 5 nights at Sandos in November. This all inclusive hotel is in a lovely tropical setting, though a long distance from Cancun airport. Airport pick up can be arranged with the hotel, but getting back is your own business. Our room was comfortable and spacious and at the "back" of the property from the pool area. Something we...

I recently enjoyed a fabulous vacation to the sandos playacar. I travelled with my husband, teenage daughter, her best friend and my two younger sons. I was slightly dubious about the trip prior to going as I'd read a variety of reviews ranging from amazing to terrible. However, this was short lived and after around 10 hours total in travelling...
