    French restaurant

    Felipe was our waiter tonight. This was our second time here this week as the service, the atmosphere and especially the food was very exquisite! Felipe catered to my request of a second filet mignon plate And a second dessert. Pkease go here when you stay at Playacar. The best a la carte by far!!

    Every single one there deserves a 5+

    Great place, very clean and very well maintained, friendly people (every single one of them salutes you with a smile) and awesome food. Speedy check in& check out and even the sales people are not as pushy as they are everywhere else. Gracias, Eyter Briseno and Daniel Tabla for all your help! Thank you so much for your great service, Betty, Rene and all the other ones that made our breakfast/ lunch/ dinner experience so great! And, please guys: give Chef Concepcion a big raise, she deserves it! The Mexican Restaurant was the best, although we really enjoyed all the other ones, but the duck with black mole sauce was to die for (probably the other dishes too). The only thing I would suggest is to really separate the adults only section of the family one because, after all, that's why people pay a little bit more: to stay away from other people's kids and to enjoy some quiet, quality time off. The pool area (I am talking about the "adults only" one) was frequently invaded by family with noisy kids, random people passing by, or people just walking back and forth to the buffet. It's not pleasant, please try to do something about it. Otherwise, everything was great. We would definitely come back.

    Great Stay

    This was a great relaxing stay. The grounds are beautiful, staff are friendly, beach is beautiful for nice long walks. Food is great, with nice size portions, wasn't a fan of the Asian, but Mexican, Italian, and others were really good. Beatriz Lopez Vazquez from Festival for breakfast was very pleasant, friendly and very welcoming. The only thing I would say about the hotel is that the rooms are a little outdated, but other then that everything else was great!
