My wife and I along with my sister and two nieces spent a long weekend (Friday through Monday) at Sandos Cancun. First the good. We arrived at the resort and found the room we were given had no balcony. I requested a king with a balcony. We were upgraded to the second floor with a balcony and two doubles. The maid was able to put the two beds together. Great view of the ocean and lagoon! The beach was beautiful with plenty of chairs and day beds. The restaurant on the beach was a great place for lunch each day. The steakhouse was good. Now the not so good. The pools were cold and shaded by the all too close Secrets of the Vine. Bar situation was lame. Bar 1 is dark and inside with outdated chairs and couches. Bar 2, the outside bar, looked like it could be fun. Oh, but not so much. It was closed from the time we got there to the time we left. What a waste! The Japanese restaurant was fair. No appetizers or desserts. Went to the buffet to get dessert. Not a good idea. Beach service was hit or miss. First day didn't see a waiter. Other times, he would show up, then disappear for hours. There's plenty of better options along this beautiful stretch of beach. Will not return.

Nice in general, but....

Great room, amazing pool, the drinks are very nice and the playa is the BEST. It seems that they are the only one that cleans their playa from alga and waste. Service is really good. Shout out to hostess Diana who provide us with great custumer care and remembered our name and room number even after the first service. However, if you are looking for great coffee (or any type of coffee), this is not the place !! Also, the buffet is good, but food is always kind of cold when you get back to your table. At night, shows are kinda boring and the set up is very unsuitable for shows (it is more like a lounge and not like a theatre).

Terrible bathroom

When i take a shower, no water comes from tap.so i asked main lobby,they said wait 10 minutes. But even if 30 minutes go through, anybody didn't come. So i asked again. But they said they don't know when they can fix it. I felt so awful. And calling machine has noise. So when i call main lobby , i can't understand what they said. So i had to go to main lobby by myself. Bathroom condition is so terrible. When i took a shower, it smells so bad. E bathroom , foods and rest

Did not meet our expectations

We just came back from a Fri-Mon vacation. We did the "Six Apple Square Deal" All Inclusive and were placed at the Sandos Cancun. We've been to other all inclusives before so we have come to expect great service, ammenities, and food. I start out by saying that this resort is SMALL. It's advertised as a "boutique" hotel, so ok, if you're looking for small then this is it. Our room was nice, but not extravagant. The balcony overlooking the pool and the ocean was the nicest part. The pools however are shaded most of the day by the Secrets of the Vine hotel which towers over the grounds of the Sandos. As a result, the pools were freezing. The entire time we were there, there were just a handful of guests using the pools. Next, the service. Not one waiter or waitress went out of their way to get to know us and believe me, we tipped generously. The service was slow, or non-existent. I feel like being so soon after the holidays, they may have given the majority of the staff off because because there were so many things shut down. Bar 2 looked like a fun outdoor bar, but was shut down the entire time we were there, day and night. Bar 2 was one of the things they even promoted when we got to the resort so you mean to tell me the tour guide didn't know it was shut down? Then the restaurants...they're not all open every night and the staff doesn't seem knowledgeable about which ones were open so we missed the French restaurant altogether because we planned on going our last night but it was closed. The food was ok. The Seasons steak restaurant was the best and the service there was better than the others. The only night life at this hotel was at Bar 1 and that was a DJ who didn't try to get the crowd going at all. I will have to say that I had a very good massage in the spa, but the spa isn't anything spectacular. I feel overall that this hotel is in a serious need of upgrades if it wants to keep it's Six Apple Rating. If you're looking for a fun place that will wow the socks off you, this is not it. Go somewhere like the Paradisus, or the Hard Rock. Those resorts looked like a lot of fun when we walked down the beach. Ours was a dud...

Great Boutique Hotel

This is a gem of a resort. We loved our stay here. The resort is delightful. The people were excellent. The rooms are spacious and clean. The food was good with a good variety. This is all inclusive. The pools are beautiful but don’t get as much use as they should due to the shade from the buildings. The beach is nice and there are lots of loungers and beds. The entertainment is very good both during the day at the pool and at night in the bar. Only complaints we have are very minor. The food on buffet is never very warm and certainly not hot. The windows throughout could use a good cleaning. Recommend bringing lots of ones and fives for tips. We thought we had plenty and ran out in a few days. Very difficult to get change for a $20. Would definitely recommend for adults. Not many children. Great value for the money.
