Located in the seaside resort of Playacar, the Sandos Playacar has a superb beach, unlike some of the hotels in the area. This all inclusive hotel offers, like many others, plenty of very good entertainment and facilities as well as various children's clubs.

    Location 10.0 /10

    The hotel is located on the seafront slightly set back in the resort of Playacar, 6.25 mi south of the centre of Playa del Carmen, a 10-15-minute car journey away. The hotel is around 45 minutes away from Cancun International Airport, which is 31.25 mi away.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    The complex has a maximum capacity for around 900 people accommodated in 466 bedrooms, including 63 suites. The smallest bedroom in the resort has a floor area of 344 sq ft! 50 of the bedrooms have a sea view, whereas the others overlook the garden or the swimming pool. Bedrooms all have blue decor and a rather firm bed (king-size or twin beds), and feature white-painted bamboo furniture. They are functional and clean and have a direct-dial international telephone, a (free) mini-bar with a coffee-maker, a radio alarm clock, satellite television (46 channels), a mirror, a (free) safe, air-conditioning with a fan, and an iron and ironing board.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    It all started in 1996, the year the Sandos Playacar was opened. It was later renovated in 2007. Guests arrive at the huge circular reception area decked with palapas. In this artificial kingdom, the many buildings are painted in tangy colours. The resort consists of long, straight, sun-exposed concrete paths. Unfortunately, the vegetation leaves a lot to be desired. A huge lagoon pool is accessible to all, whereas a second pool near the beach is reserved exclusively for adults. It is worth noting that the Sandos Playacar has two children's clubs, including one with a small indoor swimming pool. Different entertainment programmes are offered for 4-6 year olds, 6-8 year olds and 8-11 year olds.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    Where dinner is concerned, the choice is very wide and in fact 10 themes are offered, for example Mexican, Caribbean, etc. This doesn't spoil anything though: meals are carefully presented and the well cooked dishes are tasty. A real treat for the taste buds! Do not forget to reserve a table (essential!) in the a la carte restaurants, though. The Sandos Playacar has five bars, two of which are on the beach. You will also find a buffet here.

    Beach 8.70 /10

    The lobby is more than 984 ft from the beach. A large path leads directly down to the crystal waters, via the swimming pool and in front of several buildings. The 1,640-ft-long beach provides pleasant surroundings marked by the many palm trees growing out of the fine, clean sand. There are no algae on the foreshore, which is sufficiently rare to be worth mentioning. Both very long and wide, the supervised beach at the Sandos Playacar offers many facilities: multiple palapas parasols with built-in tables, plastic deckchairs, sports facilities such as a football pitch, or even a water sports club and a buffet nearby. A very small bar provides waiter service. There is also a ?club? area on the beach. Many marriages (Mexican and American) take place here. For those who may be interested, going topless is only allowed on the beach.

    To know

    It is the latest hotel in the resort of Playacar. In order to ensure comfort and peacefulness for its tourists, the hotel does not accommodate the famous 'spring breakers' (young Americans celebrating the end of their exams). Americans, Canadians and Europeans make up the bulk of the clientele here. Families represent two-thirds of the hotel's clientele, which is evident from the two very enticing children's clubs. The entertainment team consists of 23 people. The Playacar golf course is a 10-15-minute walk away.
