We just returned from a one week holiday at Sandos Caracol. This is our second trip, and we enjoyed it even more than last year. We noticed an improvement in the food, at both the buffets and a la carte restaurants. The only negative aspect of dining a la carte, was the long wait times. We really appreciated the wonderful...

This review is best for families or groups travelling with kids and staying in the main part of the resort. We did not stay in the adults only section, nor did we stay in the Premier Club or whatever they call it. 13 people that included 6 kids ranging from 9 to 15. Transfer from Airport: It is a large...

Went for our honeymoon, Jan 27-Feb 6, and stayed in the Select Club 18+ area. Our trip was booked through Cheapcarribbean.com . Unfortunately arrived too late to see the Tulum vegan festival! We had an amazing time. Right from our arrival, we were greeted by friendly employees. I knew from reading reviews here not to wait in line at "Concierge",...

We spent a day at the resort as was an option from Playacar. It's a true jungle experience if that is your goal. Many nice paths to walk and animals to see Compared to Playacar, the bar service is very slow. I'm on Mexican time too, but that was more like Jamaica time. The beach is horrible. Rocks and full...
