My family and I had an awesome vacation at Sandos. Sandos is the kind of hotel that will make you connect with nature without losing comfort. There were many activities to do, like the cenote, bikes, water park and many more. First, we were greeted by Malena at the front desk, she was very kind and helpful. We had most of our meals at Los Lirios restaurant, the breakfast was our favorite. We have no words to describe Adriana, the manager, and the servers there. Adriana was excellent and made sure we had a great time, she even sent a delicious surprise to my room and my parents' because of their wedding anniversary. The servers were always amazing taking care of our table, specially Nayelli, Genaro, Grey, and Fernando. They were very friendly and gave us a treatment that made us feel special. Also at the La Laguna Buffet, Luiz was a happy and kind server who made us laugh and even taught us a little bit of Spanish.
Overall, we all had a great experience. My parents stayed 14 days and my husband and I stayed 4 days. We would all go back for sure!!
Visiting sandos once or twice a year for the last 6-7years.
Sandos is a clear destination for us as we are Royal Elite members.
This year we started at Sandos Playacar. And not wanting to be negative but there is a real 21st century issue with the archaic business model of the leadership in that branch of sandos group. What a disappointment to be honest. And this at almost all levels of management.. (except ground workers that are amazing)
After 2 weeks we went to Sandos Caracol, to be honest without real hope..., and then magic happen in the restaurant Los lirios!
Capitan Jose Gonzàlez (manager) and Rigoroberto directly spotted the eco food conscious we are.
We do not add sugar on everything and don’t want bottled juices for breakfast or pastries...
On top of this my wife can’t have milk or gluten...
Well this is not a problem for Master Gonzàlez and his team! We got our oatmeal with almond milk, the fruit plates, the gluten free breads, no SUGAR, fresh juices, honestly what an amazing service!
With all our heart we really thank the Capitan Jose Gonzàlez and his team at Los Lirios in Sandos Caracol!
We stayed 8 nights at Sandos Caracol. I would definitely come back. The service from all employees was fantastic and everyone went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The food at the al a carte restaurants was very good. We only ate at the buffet once. It was not that great but we don’t enjoy buffets especially during COVID where everyone touches the same food handles. The shows were fairly good and entertaining especially Lady GAGA.
