Our Opinion

The Sandos Playacar is an amazing luxury resort for those wanting quality experience and service. The resort area is huge, meaning there are plenty of things to do. From beachside activities to the nightly theatre entertainment quality is reflected in element of the resort. If you are looking for top-shelf liquor, opt to be more of a premium traveler when staying here. There is a wide array of food items, which could get a bit overwhelming. However, they are all good in quality.

Sandos Playacar

The Sandos Playacar is simply, a stunning resort, set on one of the nicest stretches of beach in Playacar. This quality 5-star resort features excellent cuisines, immaculate service and offers such generous inclusions as 24 hour room service, a stocked in-room mini-bar and a great fitness centre. The Hacienda section creates the atmosphere of a Mexican village surrounded by beautiful tropical foliage. Each 10-unit building has its own solarium and private pool. Enjoy luxury at its best!
Location: On the beach, 5 minutes to Playa del Carmen, 60 minutes from Cancun, 45 minutes from the airport.
