September getaway

Check in-we paid for the adults only club room which included a private check-in. However, we had to go to the regular check in desk like everyone else. The lady that sat us down explained a few of the areas of the resort, the restaurant options, ect. However, she pushed the time share breakfast meeting on us several times, never taking no for an answer. We insisted we were not going to that meeting. She closed her book and walked away and had us fend for ourselves. Restaurants-the only bright spot in this regard was how easy making the reservations was. We were able to make our 3 ala carte reservations right away at the meeting place. The unfortunate part is that you only get 3 ala carte dinners for a 1 week stay. The buffets are what you have for the rest of the week. These left something to be desired to say the least. The food was always the same, was always cold and the service was poor. Beach-the beach was great, very clean and lots of room and chairs for everyone. Towels were always available. Entertainment staff-poor at best. They did not try to involve people with activities. It rained a lot during the week and they provided minimal activities to keep people busy during the rain. Room-very comfortable. Bed was too firm and bedding was cheap. Blankets and bedspread were worn. There was mold in the bathroom. Jacuzzi was good. TV channel selection for English speaking guests was minimal. We have been going to Mexico for over 10 years and this resort is by far very inferior to all the others we have stayed at. If you enjoy good food and good service, chose another property.

jacuzzi in room, outdoor hot tub

We went for our 1st wedding aniversery. It was so nice to have welcome champaign and fruit. In room Jacuzzi was perfect. We stayed in the adult only section. Bath robes were nice too. Everything was at this resort. Beach, pools, swim up bar, late night dancing, entertainment, outdoor hot tub. Staff was always helpfull. Dinner reservations was the only problem we had. I had a vision of Brazil, Mexican, and Steak. But I could only get reservations for one of 3 nights. This is the 2nd time it has happened. I don't know how people do it. I would recomend this hotel to anyone.

Great location but won't go again

The location and size of the resort and amazing beach were fantastic great swim up adult bar and pretty good food choices however I was there for my best friends wedding the checking was long and a nightmare customer service is not very accommodating they try and put u in the wrong rooms the bride and groom moved 4 times because the rooms smelled or had twin beds the hacienda suites r gorgeous that they finally ended up in but r expensive. Our room had the worst bed and smell and cockroaches it seemingly looked nice at first and was seemingly clean but had issues. I did not wana move cause it would far up a whole day of vacation. Wish they had more rides frequently to the beach side it was rough to walk in such heat. Beach was still so clean and gorgeous and the wildlife at the resort was very cool the wedding was also very pretty. And the drinks and bartenders were great!

Perfect

We stayed at the Adults Only Rivera Select Club part of Sandos Playacar. You will not find a better place to stay. The beach was the BEST! Food was incredible. We enjoyed walking miles on the the beach along all the hotels in Playa del Carmen, The rooms are located away from the resturaunts and beach. They have a commuter carts for you if you want to ride instead of walking. Definitley stay here..

Very nice resort. A couple of little things need something

Our room was nice, clean, but had a lingering odor that didn't go away, mold or mildew. The safe needed programming 3 times due to malfunctioning. TV remote worked only the first night. Otherwise the room was spacious and comfortable. Beds are a rather hard. Some of the staff was exceptional and some just very average, if not helpful. Very good food. We enjoyed the venues and the dining room staff. Marguarita in Fesitval and Daniel in Piedmont in the evening were delightful. Lots of amenities. Entertainment was very good and the beach was absolutely beyond, wonderful! All in all, we enjoyed our stay .
