My fiancee & Myself travel a lot. When it's just him and I we usually hit it higer end resorts; however, when we take the kids (4 of them) its different. This time it was Myself, My best friend Christina and the FOUR kids!!!!!!! Yes.... It was a 2 week trip to Sandos Caracol "Eco", it's a nice resort, food wasn't to bad remember you are in Mexico.
Rooms are Cleaned everyday, Beach is nice and clean some sea weed but nothing you can do about that, the water is rocky so be careful if you have children hv them wear water shoes.
I stayed by the smaller pool sat in my lawn chair right next to the bar. :D good and deep not to many people. Kids club is amazing.
The first week there was someone pooping in the Main party pool on a daily bases.... SO GROSS.. and their pool cleaners are NATURAL... Sorry I need a transport truck of bleach after that much crap in the pool. I'll post a photo of my 3rd child when he saw the poop in the pool. SO we stayed away from the main pool. I rather swim in fish poop.
The snorkling in the sink hole is nice its by the lobby, fresh water quite refreshing.
Monkeys are everywhere, their spider monkeys so if you get to close when they have their young, they will throw their POOP at you. My 3rd child got it quite abit.
Pack lots of BUG SPRAY, the mosquito's and black flys are brutal at night, they have repellent all over the place, but its ALL NATURAL. If you buy the spray in the gift shop its very expensive adds up after the amount of spray you'll go through.
If you can over come the poop chucking monkeys and Bug Bites you will be O.k. The resort is beautiful, clean and friendly. However myself will not go back. I will not book a resort that has ECO in the name.
