Just got back from our 10 day vacation and stay at the Sandos Playacar. We had a great time! The resort was better than expected..after reading some mixed reveiws. Perfect for our family of 5...a 15 year old a 11 year old and a 7 year old. Our kids loved it here, especially the "game room" filled with ping pong tables, air hockey tables, pool tables and a big screen tv with the Wii game. The went there every night after dinner, whike my hubby and I enjoyed the entertainment just outside. Lots of shows and activites, great staff who try to get everyone involved!! Although the room we had was alittle dated it was well cleaned and stocked daily. It was also located close to the meeting point and mail pool which was a bonus. During the day we either went to the beautiful beach or one of the pools. My husband did go down to the pool with towels early in the morning in order to save chairs. The food was good, lots of variety! Loved the Fiesta buffet for breakfast and dinner! Also enjoys the Steak house ala carte resturant, very good! We did tip here and there which got us extra service and attention, they very much appreciated it!! We also went to town a few times, Playa de Carmen. It is VERY expensive!! But one night went off the beaten path and found a hole in the wall authentic Mexican Resturant...the 5 of us ate like kings for only *! It was SO GOOD and the food was fantastic!! We walked back to the hotel from Playa, which was a little long, but beautiful!! This was a great vacation and the Sandos Resort was can highly recommend!
