Words cannot express the amazing service we recieved from Mirna amd Maximo Alvarez! They were kind and attentive and greeted our baby with such care everytime. The service was quick and always had an extra touch. They even sent us off with a lovely goodbye cake on our last day:) Highly recommended!
Had a fabulous family holiday at Sandos Playacar. Started each morning at the Ltaliano Royale Elite Breakfast with Dominga, Belinda, Giselle & Jorge. They were always attentive - the coffee, water and mimosas were always full and the food was great! Looking forward to coming back again to break up winter and to soak up the sun, play in the ocean, eat some excellent food and drink the strawberry daiquiris and mimosas.
Excellent service, food, drinks, and beautiful beach. We got to the hotel and were greeted with smiles. All the staff were very nice and welcoming. Especially Arturo and Carlos at the front, and Luciano at the a la carte Mexican.
Excellent Food!! Try the Mexican restaurant (thank you luciano ) beyond and above. Celebrating my mother birthday here was definitely a great decision. The hotel is wheelchair accessible and eco friendly which is definitely a plus
We were very lucky to take part in Jimmy’s aqua gym at noon! It was so much fun! He did such an amazing job making exercise fun and enjoyable. Jimmy is passionate and cares about his new friends/participants.
