We loved our stay at Sandos Playacar! We were wow'ed entering the beautiful marble floored lobby and then again when entering the 'Meeting Point' and pool area. Gorgeous property with a STUNNING Beach. We ventured off to Tulum beaches which did NOT compare with what we had in our very own backyard. The water is a beautiful light tourquise color,... More

The place was really nice and for the most part the staff was great. I was not pleased with the fact that we couldn't use all the restaurants that are a la carte and that the staff that tries to sell you memberships can be annoying.

We stayed in the general section of the resort (not adult only) and had a great time overall. The beach is amazing: very wide, which allowed to set up several (may be 6 or more) rows of shade canopies (and not one or two like in other resorts). This way it is much easier to score the beach bed with... More
