Il piemonte restaurant
Jose pinzon served us our food and it was delicious. He was a great waiter and was quick with his service. If you love italian food this is the place to go. The tiramisu was great and also the lasangña if you love a little spicy. It was absolutely delicious. Will recommend!

Great Beach Staff for Kids
We’re just finishing up our seven day stay at Sandos Playacar and the beach staff is great! They had quite a bit of activities for kids and for families together. Juan Carlos was great at getting kids involved and keeping them entertained while my wife and I were able to relax and read on the beach. Our boys, 11 and 8, enjoyed their time with Juan Carlos so much they wanted to make sure to say bye to him before we left!
WEDDING OF MY DREAMS!!!
We just got married in October and honestly they made my dream wedding happen!! Everything was absolutely beautiful and came out perfect! Our wedding coordinator Ruth was the sweetest ever and made the whole wedding planning go so smooth for me. I can't thank her enough! I'm so sad its over. This was our second time staying at Sandos and they are simply amazing!! The staff, the beautiful beach, all the delicious food and lets not forget about the drinks were so great. We've heard nothing but great feedback from our guests as well. i cant wait to visit them again for our wedding anniversary. A huge thank you to Domingo the waiter who was always so good to my family and i and worked so hard the day of our wedding.
