Soooo I had some time to think about this, and I would give Sandos Caracol a 2.5/5. My Fiancé and I booked this hotel because we decided we wanted to get married in Playa Carmen, the wedding venues here are amazing and from what I researched this could be the place for our special day. So we decided to checkout the Resort and see if its truly picture perfect. I had to agree the beach Gazebo was breathe taking the roof top Terrance for the reception was what I was envisioning for our special day. In a heart beat I would’ve book this venue for our wedding day but what held me back from pulling the trigger was the food and beach. The International Buffett for breakfast was horrible, the only restaurant we kept eating for breakfast was at the Brazilian Steak house. The Riveria mediterranean cuisine was a joke, Mexican restaurant was the only thing Buffett style decent
Upon our check in to the resort I saw a sign that said “Playacar day Pass” and boy was I happy I saw that, after a few days being here at Sandos Caracol I suggested to my Fiancé that we should spend the day there. Sandos Playacar was amazing the beach straight out of a magazine, the food 100% time better. I’m not here to bash Sandos Caracol but considering they are the same chain resort I thought that things would mirror each other.
Overall book Sandos Caracol if you have a family and were on a budget but if you’re looking for quality and sand filled beaches this is unfortunately is not for you.
