Sandos Playacar Beach Resort - Select Club - All Inclusive
Bad food, watered down drinks, staff uninterested
After charging over $8000 for 3 rooms over Christmas for me, my husband, my kids and their partners, we checked into rooms that were drab and cold. No robes, no slippers, no promised "welcome gift" of champagne. The safe in our room was locked so we had to call security to come open it. At one point we were locked out of the room because the battery on the door lock was not working. In the room was a refrigerator with drinks, a coffee pot, 2 cups and two packs of coffee. That is all the coffee we got, it was never refilled and I had to move the coffee pot to a place where there was an outlet. At one point, a glass was broken, we called housekeeping to mop because there were slivers of glass, they never came. I ended up mopping the floor with a towel. The lock on the balcony door was broke. Over the bed hung one lonely picture quite crookedly and next to it a lone nail, where was the other picture. The adult pool was good. The food was not good, it was the equivalent of a cruise. The restaurants basically shuffled the same food around and called it French, Italian, Asian or Mexican. The buffet was pretty good in that there was a good salad bar. But seriously, some of it was inedible. It seems each day, I had to stand in a very slow line to get the things we needed, no special line for the Select Adult Section, although there was a desk. The staff in the main lobby would tell me they would take care of the issue and then not do it. It was very frustrating that they lied.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Sandos for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our vacation. We spent the extra money to stay in the Adults only select section and it was completely worth it. We got access to more restaurants and I enjoyed being able to relax in the adults only pool. The quality of food at Sandos was fantastic. There were tons of options at each meal and the flavors were excellent. The beach at the resort is absolutely gorgeous. The water is a beautiful, clear blue with white sand. I would absolutely stay at Sandos again and would recommend it to friends!

Beautiful resort
Went for a wedding. The beach and beach wedding were beautiful. The whole resort is beautiful and I felt safe. The staff is wonderful and so helpful and nice. There is a 5 gallon jug of water in each of the rooms that was so nice and so less wasteful than bottled water. There are a lot of food options. They are all really good, but not excellent. It was definitely worth the money. We would go back.

Good price/quality ratio. IS NOT AN ADULTS ONLY!
Good price/quality ratio. Rooms are nice, but the hotel is huge, and there is only like one car to go from the Adult section to the beach. Food is good as well, but the service is uneven, some of the personal are extremely nice and helpful but others are very rude. However, I will stay here again. The Playacar beach is without a doubt the most beautiful I've ever seen, the water is clear, there are a lot of little fishes in the water, so beautiful. However, this is NOT a CHILD FREE hotel as they advertise. There are Adult sections, but there are children everywhere, in the restaurant, the pools, etc. I will not recommend this hotel for a romantic get away, is more for a family vacation.
