Sandos Playacar
Overall a decent place, food was good with lot of options. Some of the staff were friendly. Resort has lot of amenities for all ages. Cons- No Valet Parking Didn’t have a lot of festival decoration unlike nearby RIU or Iberostar Big resort which requires lot of walking Shuttle service is ok but should be more frequent. Sometimes you have to wait for 10-15 min and some people may not be able to board as the queue gets long during meal times. No food and drinks served to you at your chair, cabana which means if you are on the beach and finish your drinks, you have to walk good 50-100 meters depending on where you are to get a drink. They have an adult only section near the beach which means families can’t really have oceanview rooms or atleast thats what we were told. Plus the adult bar refused to serve us drinks on a hot day saying its for select club members even though there was noone behind us waiting. Imagine that first you don’t serve drinks to where people are sitting, then someone walks and you refuse to serve, all on a hot day. That was a big turn off for us.

So so
The best recommendation I can provide is having someone explain all the amenities the resort has. No one told us anything nor tried.. when we tried to reserve one of the restaurants everything was packed. The swimming pool is only opened until 630. A todos but disappointed. The buffet was decent and good..

Will not stay again
Pools an beach were great. But the service was not. From my room to beach was far. They had a shuttle service. But was very unorganized an slow. The reservation for the dinners was not good. Couldnt really get any at descent times. Had small kids an older parents. So 9 oclock dinners were not ideal. Earlier times were all booked. Thts the last thing i should worry about on vacation eating dinner. Id ask staff for small things if they didnt have would just say NO. Not let me see what i can do or try an figure something out. Had a family of 10 so couldnt ocomidate for dinners really. Few cockroaches in our room. Couldnt break 100s or maje change on lots of places!!!

I will start off by saying that the beach area by this property was gorgeous with soft sand and warm clear water and had limited rocks and seaweed. The employees were also mostly kind and helpful. However our stay here was kind of a nightmare. Our first room they placed us in was in the “Adults Only” section… the room itself was far less than impressive. No WiFi in our room- you have to walk all the way to the end of the building and even then it doesn’t work well. I asked the front desk about it and they said it doesn’t work anywhere in the building we are staying in… the adults only building…. Fix it. This wouldn’t be a huge problem, however the phones are apparently also down, so to book any type of room service you need to do it on their app- which you can’t access without your phone… Tv had 3 black lines on the screen so that was aggravating. A/C in the room did not work, it is so hot on the 4th floor and there is nothing we can do about it. The fan is weak, Was supposed to be a king bed and not two queens, but that wasn’t the end of the world. All of the pools close at 8 and you must be out of them by then or be kicked out by security. So after 8PM all you can do at this resort is eat. Room was entirely too disappointing at first glance. All of the Picture frames are tilted, toilet paper rod missing, shower door won’t stay closed, and there is only one outlet by the bed. The water cooler isn’t even cool water, just room temp- so uncomfortably warm…

Not clear when booking how property is divided up and which areas you can or can't go depending on your wrist band.

8/10 Very good

To start, our check in was horrible ( over two hrs.) When we finally got to our room, the buffet was closed and couldn't eat which we were hungry from traveling all day. ( We did finally find another buffet to eat at). Making dinner reservations was a nightmare... no availability for three days, but found out we could just go to a restaurant and they would seat us. The WiFI was not the greatest, but is needed on the resort. After all that, we did have a great time. The staff was helpful, when we had questions. The activities personnel was the best !!!! Always had fun with them. Julio ( not sure his title) was amazing and always asked us if we were having fun and was available for any help needed !!!! I would recommend them moving the adult pool back to the pool with the swim up bar instead of making that the family pool. Also would like more adult only areas. lots of kids in the bar where adults belong. Overall had a good time, the resort grounds are beautiful .
