I asked they delivered
2nd time in Mexico, the first time in a different hotel was terrible! So after 2 years I tried again, 2nd day in and the staff and management team are awesome! Rooms are great, adults only is awesome and right on the beach! I asked Warren and Beatrice for a couple of things and they came up trumps! I love how Warren replies to every reply on here, I've not met him yet but I have a high expectation so you best live up to it lol. 5 more days to go but, ignore the rest and book with these guys!
First time in Sandos Playacar!!
Our day hosts for the week were Yessi and Manuel, they are the fun bunch. Make sure to get to the pool and look for Yessi and Manuel. They made our days at the pool fun and exciting. I met some great people from all over the world and Yessi and Manuel made everyone's day better. We will be back!!
Playa Del Carman Vacation
Took a trip to Sandos Playacar Resort and had a beautiful time. There was lots of events at the pool led by Yessi and Manuel and they were great. They were so fun and hosted a lot of fun events outside the pool the best was the aqua robics it was so fun!
We stayed at the Select Club section for adults only. Great resort. We loved Manuel and Yessi, the entertainers at the adult pool. Lots of daily fun things to do, The location of our room was great, right by the pool and beach. The shows at night were good, great Michael Jackson show. We would stay here again.
Manuel and Yessi were so much fun!! It was my first time playing darts and they made it a blast! The water aerobics in the morning with Manuel are the best time!! Playa Del Carmen is the best hotel and there’s so many fun activities to do.
