Sandos Caracol Eco Resort - All Inclusive, Playa del Carmen
Good, but not great customer service or cleaning.
We had a great first impression. They gave us a bottle of sparkling wine and fruit upon our arrival. The room was clean and nice. However, they did not come to clean our room on any night. We had to call them after dinner and ask for clean towels or water. Sometimes, they wouldn’t come even after that. Also, they lied to us and told us in order to use our coupon, we had to listen to a 90 min presentation (which lasted 2.5 hours). We found out that we didn’t need to listen to this. They also would not honor my spa coupon because I didn’t present it at the time i booked it. This makes no sense to us. I felt like they could have made us happy by honoring it and they would not bend at all. The food was good and they had variety, but not a lot of options for picky eaters (small kids who only eat plain pasta or chicken fingers, etc). Great game room, cenote, wildlife, and beach (although rocky).

We would stay again, knowing what we now know
The resort was amazing and more than what we expected in reference to the Eco aspect. Obviously, the water park with the slides was why we booked the hotel for my son. My son, who loves nature and animals, was even more excited to see wild Coati, monkeys, peacocks, etc running freely around the resort. Snorkeling in the natural cenotes and traveling the underground tunnels was also exciting. The nightly shows regarding the Mayan people was educational and entertaining to watch. The only thing we wished we had known in advance, or upon check in, was that there are restaurant shut down to children on certain days. We did not know these days in advance and was turned away from two restaurants we had planed to eat at for dinner. there are already adult only areas, which we respected, but to shut out children to restaurants in the common area does not seem right. The resort seems to attract more families than the adult only crowd. Left the families eating more that the buffets, which best meals are usually breakfast. Either way, when we were able to eat at the restaurants, the food was great. The resort also offered a kids club which we did not use due to our son being 12 and more mature than the scheduled activities. He did enjoy the ping pong, pool tables and foosball area. There is a spa and gym (again children under 18 were not able at all) which we tried to use when our son was at the water park. Facility was nice and the massages were exceptional.
