Went on a family vacation with our children and we all loved it. The property was beautiful, natural and I felt like we were away from it all in the jungle. We saw spider monkeys, birds, and all kinds of animals. Truly amazing! The food was very good, the beach was beautiful and the staff was very friendly! Hervis, Elidan,... More

Just spent another very long holiday at Sandos Caracol. It's just like going home to our Mexican family. Everything about it super especially the staff. We have made so many friends there who like us return often. We loved it so much we bought into the Royal Elite Holiday club. (Not timeshare) it's so fabulous, next years already booked.

I traveled with my wife and 9 year old son. It was his first time out of the country, but my wife and I have been to Mexico two other times. I am an over-planner, so I did a lot of research. I read the reviews on here and elsewhere, watched videos, etc. So I had particular expectations, and Sandos... More

We spend 7 days at Sandos and had a wonderful time. Beach was very nice, but far if you are at the Adults only or family sections. Food was good; burrito place and French (try the duck) was our favorite. Mexican night was fun with tequila tasting and sampling of authentic food. Entertainment was great; evening and throughout the day.... More
