"My daughters and I spent a week here. One daughter had been here before and recommended it. We enjoyed it tremendously. Everyone was very courteous and helpful. The grounds were always clean. Even though we were gone on excursions a few days, we all agreed that it was a bargain to stay here. We all would return here again. We were here October 26 thru November 2 2013."

"First time at Sandos and I was completely satisfied. The rooms were immaculate and my Grandchildren were excited to return to the room to see the 'towel made' animal that would be left daily. The staff were all so friendly and all spoke enough english that there was never a communication issue. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and every inch is well maniured. There are numerous announced activities thru the day..ranging from water arobics...ping pong tournaments....iron man contests....something for every age....and a nightly gathering of fun activities for adults and children. The beach is sectioned off with a life guard on duty so that was also a definate plus without having to worry. I will be returning sometime in November and am excited that I know exactly what to expect. If someone from the resort reads this ... I think I left my costume jewelry in a bag in the bathroom...I stayed in adult section 2nd floor but dont remember the room number. Outstanding accommodations and fun for young and old. "

"Overall this resort is very nice. We were put in the adult section only which at first we didn't like that we were so far from the beach (10 minute walk). But after the 1st day at the hotel and spending the day at the beach it was nice walking back to the adult only section where it was much quieter and you can enjoy the pool without worry about little kids jumping, splashing and screaming near you. So that was a plus for us. We also soon realized that the walk to the beach every morning was a pleasant walk because the grounds around the resort are so well kept and clean and at night, the walk is very romantic with it's soothing sounds coming thru the speakers discreetly placed through out the resort. The only negative for us was the food, we didn't think the food was that good and in fact my wife got sick on day 4 of our 6 day trip."

"Just came back from a 6 night stay at Sandos and we had a great time! Staff was very friendly, food was good. There was a variety for everyone. The restaurants were awesome. Although we were only able to make 2 restaurant reservations the food at the buffets was very good. NO complaints at all! Great place I would recommend to others!"

"This was my first trip to Mexico for a friend's wedding that was to take place at Sandos Playacar resort. The wedding party was encouraged to stay at the resort. I was not particularly thrilled by the prospect of staying at all-inclusive resort with all its third-world gated community implications, but it actually turned out fine, despite the middle-brow cheesy theme-park vibe and the occasional attempts by the desk personnel to sell overpriced 'all-inclusive' excursions to local attractions. If you're looking for a clean, safe place to just drink, eat and relax on a beautiful beach and not venture out too much, an all-inclusive resort like this makes sense. If you're planning to see a lot of sights and do a lot of excursions, the value of an all-inclusive starts to diminish quickly. For the convenience of a wedding party it made perfect sense. As for quality of Sandos, I was generally satisfied. We had a beachfront room that was small and sparsely furnished and which showed signs of wear, but it was clean and the bathroom and shower were modern enough. The close proximity of our room to the beach and to the main buffet restaurants was an key component of my enjoyment. I would not have liked to have been stuck in the 'adult-only' section that's a 10-15-minute hike from the beach. (The resort does provide golf cart shuttles, but they don't come frequently enough and are often arrive already full, so it ends up being just as quick to walk). While I'm on this subject, I'll point out the resort provides loaner bicycles one can use to venture out of the resort---it's an easy 10-minute ride to Playa del Carmen---but they don't allow them to be used within the resort itself, which is kind of stupid, since the resort is so sprawling. Bicycles would be an ideal solution for getting around. As for the food, breakfast and lunch buffets were good as long as you picked the right items. The taco bars and fresh fruit and salad bars were quite good. Bread items were categorically awful (making it easy to avoid those carbs). I skipped the pasta bars and American food, so I can't speak to it--just think midwest banquet food. The burger/hotdog bar at the beach was pretty lousy. The main Mexican restaurant's menu did offer some really good items. The carne asada and the fajitas they served were excellent. Regarding the reservation restaurants, due to lack of advance planning on our part, we were able to use only one of the two dinner reservations available to us for our five-day stay. You really need to book those as soon as you arrive because they fill up and it's impossible to get a reservation. We ended up eating at the Brazilian Janeiro restaurant. The food was quite good, but the dining experience was an odd mixture of culinary simplicity and friendly-yet-slightly-inept service. Don't expect a refined or even 'exotic' dining experience and you won't be disappointed. We did order room service breakfast a couple of mornings and it came within the expected 30-minute timeframe. Again, nothing special--just typical continental breakfast fare you'd get at a Best Western in the US. As for the bars, the quality of the house tequila is below bottom shelf, and the mixers they use are syrupy and cloying. The margaritas were NOT good. Mixed drinks are made carelessly. The beer (Dos Equis on draft) was watery and warm. I stuck with the name-brand rum either on the rocks or asked for less of the sugary stuff and did okay with that. I think the quality of the drinks is one area in which they could definitely stand to improve. Not surprisingly, it was all about quantity, not quality. One unexpected highlight was the espresso available in the Cupcake Lounge. It was really excellent (even to someone from Seattle), though I would rate the cupcakes and other pastries they serve there as 'adequate' at best. All in all, I'd recommend Sandos to anyone who wants the all-inclusive experience with a beautiful, spotless beach; but if I ever visit the Mayan Riviera again and have more time, I will be more likely to look for a small hotel in either a quiet section of Playa Del Carmen or perhaps Tulum in order to experience more of the local flavor.
