I just love it - I'm hooked on the all Inclusive plan, no traveling for dinner, just a short stroll to all of the restaurants. the food was really good and lots of yummy desserts. The...

My wife and I stayed at the Sandos Playacar from Mar 9-16. We are in our early 30's for some perspective. We were upgraded to the Select club (adults only) section of the resort, which was a nice touch. Our room was quite nice with decor that was relatively modern. One aspect of the room furnishings we were not in...

I really enjoyed the all inclusive experience at this hotel. The staff were very friendly especially bellmen, so helpful. As at any all inclusive it was hard to remember to book your dinner reservation ahead of time but at least they had some options that you didn't need reservations. We went into town as well...as I do like to experience...

Me my mom, my friend and her mom just got back from a trip to the Sandos Playacar on the 14th (we stayed from the 10th-14th). We had a rocky start the first day with missing our connecting flight after a delay in Houston but we finally arrived on the resort at around midnight Saturday. We booked through allinculsiveoutlets.com which...

My friend and I booked Sandos through a special internet offer. The offer was incredible. I don't think we could have done better with an all inclusive than we did. Most of the staff were pleasant and easy to work with. Be careful when you see a person with a badge that states "In Training", believe me they are in...

We went a couple years ago, we went with with my sister & brother in'law. The resort was well kept & the staff was quite friendly. I still keep in touch with some staff & people we've met there. A great way to meet new people. The food & bar service was excellent. No complaints! We stayed Feb 6-13, 2010

We stayed at the Sandos for 5 nights and overall it was great. The only questionable incident happened our first night when an employee entered our room when we were sleeping. We were a little inebriated and he could have knocked first and we didn't hear it, but why not a phone call? Nothing came of it though. Service: Excellent!...

I wanted to write this because of the negative reviews written on this forum. I was a little scared when I kept reading not so great reviews. The reviews can not be further from the truth. Well maybe one. The beds were hard but upon request they furnished us with a softer mat that went on top of the bed....

This hotel is really three distinct sections and this really confused us when we booked so I hope this helps people thinking of going. The original hotel was on the beach and this is the oldest section of the property, with some sea views and around the pool, we didn't see the rooms but were told these were smaller than...

We stayed 7 nights at Sandos Playacar and had a great time. We bought through Getawaydealz.com so we had to commit to a 90-minute pitch on buying a time share...that turned into nearly 3 hours.
