Construction @ Sandos Caracol?

Just read a review about some construction happening, what are they working on? Really hope it's not the aquapark! Heading there in 10 days with 4 very excited kids:)

They are working on several buildings to the west of the children's pool. Bldgs 29 to 36 and also building 77 and 78 (which have no green fences around them). Workers are working 24/7 on 77 and 78 while the others behind the fences are worked on during daylight. Check out the resort layout map (if you have one) or look at it on my website.

You still can get access to the kid's aqua-park.

....just got back. Construction isn't really an issue other than some buildings are being renovated. The Asian restaurant is still closed but the renos are well underway. The Mexican restaurant is also closed and the renos have not yet been started. The resort just keeps on getting better and better! Looking forward to seeing the changes on our next visit.

Web relations (HOLA ALEX!) or the Caracol facebook page are great for current information.

Hi Sherry, your back? I thought you were still there. So, you must enjoyed your stay if you want to go back?

Many changes since I was there is April. Maybe next year, we'll see.

Did you try the new restaurant at the Club (I don't remember the name of the restaurant)

Hi Nancy,

Yes we arrived back home Sunday evening.........wish I was still there....sigh...

The new restaurant is great!! Wonderful food, great service and lovely decor. It's in the new RE Club bldg and I think it's called Los Liros or something like that. It is replacing the steak house that was on the beach. The old steak house is the temporary Asian restaurant and once they move back into their bldg (will become a Japanese grill) I'm hearing the vacant restaurant on the beach will become a vegetarian restaurant.

Late at night when the steak house closes, it converts into a disco; We never made it back there to check it out. We were too busy having late night drinks with some other Canadian couples we met out there. Fun times......can't wait to go back!
