“WONDERFUL!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

This was our 6th trip to Yucatan. We chose Sandos Cancun because my sister and her husband (The Frandy's) decided on Sandos for their first trip and we wanted to surprise them. Needless to say they were surprised when we walked in to the Zango for supper our first night.

From the time we arrived we were treated like royalty. The food and atmosphere were wonderful. We especially liked that it was a smaller resort (about 275 rooms) so it felt more personal. We were in the gold category so we were able to use the preferred lounge on the 6th floor and the pool cabanas. What a treat! Overall, the staff and service were supurb, the bartenders fun and professional. The resort is pristine and easy to get around.

Breakfast on the beach was a truely memorable delight. Our servers Erick and Martin could not do enough for us. They made all the arrangements for the 4 of us.

A special thank you to Alely Roche from web relations for our special accomodations. Certainly went above and beyong to make our room special. If you ever have any special desires/requests do not hesitate to contact them.

And to General manager Martina Rodriguez Marcano, thank you for all you do to manage a great resort!

Best Regards,
Jack Lashua and Mary Jo Gerhardt

Having stayed in many hotels in many places, this is the best service I have ever seen. From the doorman David right to the poolside waiter Reyes, this was the best staff. The hotel is immaculate and well appointed. The restaurants are diverse and the food quality unusually high for an all- inclusive. Food preparation and presentation is worthy of any 5 Star. The room was fairly standard but immaculate with a lovely view. The beach and grounds are exactly what you see in the brochure. If there is the slightest drawback its the pool area. The neighboring hotel casts a shadow on the pools later in the day which bums out the sun worshipers but don't let stop you. The atmosphere is very comfortable but classy, not for the spring break crowd, but it is perfectly situated for a fast bus or taxi ride to the club scene, big and small time shopping and restaurants galore. Nadia, Norma, Carmen, Erick, Lazaro, all GREAT Job!

When you arrive they great you with a rose, a glass of champagne and a cool wash cloth. Is there anything better than that? Well, apparently! Because they keep it up with a great breakfast buffet, superior dining choices and food and help that is truly nice and helpful. This place is the greatest and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it or stay there again!

I can't say enough good things about our trip to Sandos Cancun. The only negative would be that leaving may require you to feel instantly depressed! This place is a hidden gem of a resort, a truly beautifully designed Property with stunning grounds/pools/outdoor spaces and restaurants...the beach area is gorgeous too and has swinging day beds and loungers to choose from. Kids club rocks and is low fi for those traveling without kids. They have a fabulous array of activities each day from water aerobics and yoga to volley ball and water polo. Al fresco cooking classes were very sweet too. An eclectic bunch of South American, US/Canadian and European visitors, and when we visited a blend of families, honeymooners, couples celebrating big birthdays etc. it's worth the splurge too as the quality of restaurants and bars is excellent (and all inclusive, hoorah!), and it's genuinely that rare breed of a hotel that you want to spend time in and eat in. The breakfasts are possibly the most exciting I've ever sampled-a legendary array of anything you could possibly wish for.. Truly. The hip Teppanyaki lounge is amazing and Seasons for fine dining is elegant and gorgeous. Bar One is a cool bar with outdoor terrace that offers modern design with live music....did I mention the flowing champagne?! Outdoor fresh ceviche and champagne lunches were our thing at St Trop. We adored our time there and couldn't fault it but above all the #1 draw is the staff. I've never come across a more professional and caring team. Ridiculously well trained and just a group of savvy sweethearts is the way is describe them. From Palmira at Sanditos Kids Club (loved it),Rene,Alfredo and David the bellboys, Victor at Seasons and Jesus Apolo; the breakfast crew Oscar, Martin, Carolina, Marlo, Karina; Erick, Carlos, Santiago, Jonathan and Antonio with Norma, Lazario and Marisela. These people are amazing. Apologies for the Oscar acceptance worthy list of names, but I've never even cared/known about anyone who served me's name at any other hotel I've stayed at....you get my point. These are exceptional people who will give you an exceptional stay. If you're reluctant to stay in Cancun for the cheese factor (I was) or to go all inclusive (I also was), put you fears aside, this place is heavenly.

Get there quick before the rest of the world discovers it;)

Wow- what a beautiful place. Used to be a Le Meridian property so it's a nice place. The food and service was exceptional. We were treated to breakfast by the ocean one morning. Martin Pech was our host and waiter- what a great representative of the hotel. He couldn't be any friendlier and more helpful. It was an amazing, relaxing breakfast and stay at the hotel.

We're a couple of frequent travelers who has quite a lot of points of comparsion when it comes to hotels. Our stay at the Sandos was amongst the best stays we had on the continent. Everything at the Sandos was at least as good as presented on their website.
The staff of the hotel is welcoming, professional and extremely helpful.
The food choice was great and its quality amazing, this came as a very pleasant surprise as our previous experiences were not that satisfying in other hotels around.

We highly recommend this hotel for its overall high service quality.

Spent a wonderful week at Sandos Cancun! The purpose of the trip was pure relaxation and the need to re-charge. Sandos is the perfect place for that. The property is gorgeous including the pools, beaches, restaurants, spa, rooms, lobby. Service is exceptional. The resort is not massive so it's easy to get to know the staff and they truly go out of their way to provide exceptional service and ensure that your time at Sandos is happy and that your needs are met. I would like to acknowledge Norma at the concierge desk for making amazing recommendations for excursions and dining and the bartenders at BarOne, Manolo and Uziel, for excellent service during our entire stay. I will definitely vacation at Sandos Cancun in the future and will recommend it to others. After my experience at Sandos Cancun, I am also excited to visit other Sandos locations.
