Makes you want to go again

These have been unforgettable vacations, the hotel is fantastic, the activities were not lacking in any area of the hotel and at any time. The beach is spectacular, the spectacular pools, the restaurants and buffets spectacular. The most important thing was the attention of the staff of the hotel. They were friendly, familiar, and make you feel right at home. Absolutely loved it, definitely going again.

A couple of couples

This resort was very nice. Since it is so big there is always something to do and nightly entertainment. The staff is wonderful. Only complaints would be how far the adults only section is from the beach and we were quite annoyed with how many parents didn't stay on the family side of the beach; making the adults only beach not truly adults only. Shame on those parents.

You COULD walk to 5th Avenue in playa, but a cab will only cost you $7 so its well worth the money!

Great Stay

This was a great stay. We have stayed at a few places in Playa and Cancun and this one has been the best so far. We did the Adults only section and it is definitely worth it. I recommend this hotel (specifically this area) to all.

Great for honey moon

Staff is excellent, we walked around to other hotels and found out from othere people that sandles is the best bang for your buck. I would be careful when looking into the RIU hotels I heard they suck.

Good deal if you want all inclusive and do not need an adults only hotel

No complains. Great hotel if you want all inclusive. Adults only area is only part of the hotel though. Maybe not a good idea if you want an "only adults only" hotel.

Couple Getaway

The hotel staff was attentive, friendly and responded quickly. The cleanliness of the room and the resort as a whole was very good. The pools were nice and the beach area was great, great places to lounge, perfect sand and crystal clear beaches. I stayed at the Adults Only section with my girlfriend. The food at the hotels resturants and buffets were good and better then what I have previously experienced at other all inclusive resorts. The hotel put on quality entertainment at night and it was just a short ride into the town of Playa Del Carmen for those who like to get away. All in all, it was a solid trip.

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..

Sadsals Playcar was excellant !!

The hotel is spotless and beautiful. The employees are the best. The Adult section is really nice, but as people have said, it is a long walk to the beach. But after all the choices of food and bars, it was nice to walk. The resort had many animals and apear to be well taken care of. We would return to this resort again.
