Sandos Caracol Eco Resort - All Inclusive, Playa del Carmen
Great idea, absolutely horribly executed
Summary: Eco resort in the middle of the swamp is a really cool and beautiful idea, but so poorly executed and run. Jungle in the area is beautiful (although lots of mosquitos... it's in a swamp). For the price here, there are so many beautiful, well-run resorts nearby, I'd never even consider coming back here. - Lost our reservation, left us waiting in the heat with no answers for over an hour until they found it. - Trash in the room, and fridge, no water, mold on the curtains, ants everywhere, clogged sink, and blood on the bedsheets. Complaining got us new sheets, and some water bottles. We had to clean the trash. nothing else fixed, and they left a bloody pillow case. Complaining again rudely gave us an offer for dinner reservations, which none of the restaurants required, and nothing else. - Barely any food options for breakfast or lunch (just the buffet). "snacks" throughout the day is a few ice cream machines that are usually empty. - There's a tiered bracelet system for guests that wasn't presented to us at reservation time, and restricted our access to many things, which was always thrown in our face. - They try way too hard to sell us time shares... the entire time we were there. - Most of the waterpark is closed to adults. The few slides for adults are poorly maintained or don't run at all. - Food was ok to good. - Staff was rarely friendly - 12 people in the wedding got food poisoning and were vomiting for days. Again, very unapologetic.
