Just returned from an excellent week at this hotel. We booked through Thomas Cook and then upgraded to a sea view superior room direct with the hotel. Transfer from the airport was smooth and check in quick and easy. The room was lovely with a beautiful sea view, it was my partners birthday and there was Cava and chocolates waiting...

I really dont understand the negative comments we are here at the moment hotel is beautiful stunning views spotlessly clean with lovely staff. Loads of sunbeds ...yes people do claim them early but we've not got to the pool before 1pm and always found plenty and even umbrellas too ! There are beds stacked and ready by 2 of the...

Just returned from 10 days here with my family (2adults, 3children) and to say we have been left feeling like second rate guests is an understatement!!!!!!! Firstly let me start with the positives, the main one being the entertainment team! By far the best we've ever encountered abroad, they worked their absolute socks off the whole time (especially Pedro!) and...

A pretty average hotel really. Promoted as a four star but fails in actual fact to be so. Good enough place for a week in the sun but not a special trip..which all such trips should be. Standard of cleanliness is good except in common stair wells and lifts to accommodation blocks which are reminiscent of poorly maintained car park...

We stayed in one of the Royal Elite rooms. The view from the room was fantastic, the room itself was OK. Not, for instance, up the standard of the rooms in the Sandos San Blas but still has what you needed, although storage a bit lacking. Minibar filled on arrival. Pools were good, we didn't find any of the pools...

We spent a lovely week at the Sandos in early March. From check in, to check out, the staff were amazing and welcoming. We paid for a junior suite with the elite upgrade. I would say that the Elite upgrade is well worth the extra as the restaurant is quieter and the service a bit more attentive. The free pour...
