This is our second time to Sandos Playacar. We stayed two weeks and have mixed reviews about the resort. The entertainment at the theatre is really not very good. We went to one show in the entire two weeks we stayed there.
The rooms are not in great shape. The beds and pillows are rock hard. I used the pillows from the couch at night. There are little black bugs all over the room. Don't know if there is anything the resort can do about that, maybe spray. The lighting in the bathroom is quite low. Hard for me to shave. My entire family got very sick from either the food or a virus. Was not impressed that there is no food for children we can order from room service for our 8 year old daughter when my wife and I were sick.
We walked over to the Iberostar next door and thought it was a much nicer looking resort. There swimming pool is huge compared to the one at Sandos.
The food could use a little bit of an improvement.
Don't like how they segregated timeshare people from others.
They need more than one bar to order drinks from in the evening. The lineups for drinks can be terrible. One bar for that many people?
What we did enjoy is the beach. Incredible. The staff are outstanding and work very hard. The resort grounds and rooms are very clean. Lots of animals on the resort grounds.
We will probably try a different resort next time. One without timeshares.
