As I said before perfect holidays. The room type we had is very recomendable for families with two children. The resort is very close to playa del Carmen and that makes it easy to enjoy shopping there and spending the evenig there (low taxi cost).

Management response:

Thank you, Ralf, for enjoying our extra membership privileges with your family at the Sandos Caracol. We appreciate your helpful comments.

Management response:

The room itself was huge with plenty of space to spread out for the 3 of us. We also saw a 2 bed hacienda which would be ideal for larger families. The room...

Management response:

We sincerely thank Richard Green and all of our past guests who have shared their impressions here. It delights us to know that Sandos continues to meet and exceed vacation expectations. We have to say that buying a membership with Sandos resorts is one of the better decisions we have made in the past decade. If someone is interested in...
