This was our 2nd trip to this resort and we found it to be awesome both times. The staff was absolutely amazing -- everyone was super nice. We have to give a special "shout-out" to Roberto-Carlos - for providing a great beach dinner for us - thanks Roberto-Carlos !!

My wife and I stayed at the Sandos for New years and enjoyed everything the resort had to offer.The staff were very helpfull and friendly,the restraunts were very good as well as the buffets(desserts were awesome).We iniatlly had a oceanfront room but decided to upgrade(at no charge)to an oceanview second floor unit and its the view we reaaly liked.Nothing like waking up early and watching the sunrise.Took a snorkelling trip over to Cozomel and enjoyed it immensely.The entertainment staff were excellant and there was also a movie screen in the main square that played movies nightly.Weather was not too bad, 2 days cloudy,3 days sunny.
Still beats weather at home at minus 20 and two feet of snow.This trip was our third to Playa Del Carmen.We really like the crystal clear water for snorkelling.thank you Sandos..

Room Tip: oceanview rooms are the way to go,we hardly heard any lower floor noise.

Hello all. I usually don't do this kind.......wait. Only once before have I done this kind of thing and that was a restaurant. This is the whole package this time. Sandos Playacar continues to amaze my family again and again! Just when I thought it can't get much better it has. The Beach is one of the most beautiful in the world. The rooms are always clean, beautiful, modern, and kept that way. The different Restaurants are really managed well and the food has gotten better every time. Ranging from the unbelievable breakfasts to the excellent lunches to the choice of a variety of Good to Great Restaurants. Which leaves me to the most important part of this review. The service! The people of Sandos have to be the best in the world. Always smiling and ready to help with any of our needs or questions. My family would always meet for breakfast and a young man named Miguel Lopez Gonzalez made our breakfasts feel like we were Royalty. A huge smile from him and his close co-workers and the excellent service started our day off perfectly everyday. Also Vincenti in the Select club and his people were also very excellent! Service to my wife and I are Key. Period. It was delivered better there than in almost any other place we have been. We just got off the plane and we are already saying we can't wait to return. Thank You so much Sandos! Hope to see you soon!

Room Tip: Room close to the Beach

In october we visited Sandos Playacar. The hotel is set up very nice. The area consists actually of 2 hotels, the first hotel is where most people arrive their first time and the second part is located at the beach side.

The service of Sandos Playacar is very good. You will find staff nearly everywhere on the premisses. Besides the fact that they are always there when you need them, they are also extremely helpful and will do nearly everything for you.

All together the stay was great, the drinks were not too bad as well and (luckily) the weather was all good.

This was our third time to this resort. We are very happy with this resort and its amenities. The rooms are clean, the furnishings are up to date and the support staff is friendly. I consider the food to be good considering the large amounts they have to make. I especially like the made to order grill in the buffet area. The beach is awesome and the hotel provides excellent chairs, palapas, and hammocks to enjoy the sun or no sun. The daily activities can keep you as busy as you want to be. The resort and the area of Playacar and central Playa del Carmen are, in my opinion, very safe. We have never felt uneasy or worried about any of the things we here in the media about Mexico. Fly into Cancun and take a van down to Playa del Carmen. I would avoid flying into Cozumel and taking he ferry over because the water can be choppy and there is always the risk that the high speed ferry may be cancelled due to high winds or weather.
