Sandos Playacar - It's All About the Beach!

As part of our ongoing commitment to our clients, Purple Palm Vacations spends a lot of time learning about the destinations you want to visit by visiting them firsthand. Recently while in Riviera Maya, Mexico, we had the pleasure of staying 4 nights at Sandos Playacar Beach Resort, an All-Inclusive resort set on a picture perfect white sand beach. This resort impressed us with its dedication to the environment, fun activities, and gorgeous beach.

We Recommend This Resort For:  Beach Lovers, Value Conscious Families and Couples

Resort Highlights

  • The Sandos Playacar sits on a prime stretch of wide, white sand beach; one of the best in the Riviera Maya.
  • The resort is at the end of a row of properties so there is nothing but unspoiled beach beauty to the right and the beach is much less crowded than next door properties that have a resort on each side.
  • Sandos Playacar is within the gated community of Playacar so there are very few solicitors on the beach which can be quite common in Mexico since all of the beaches are public.
  • Exchange privileges with nearby Sandos Caracol give you free access to their 17 water slide aquapark and great wildlife viewing opportunities at this resort set in the jungle.
  • The Select Club Adults Only rooms give you access to an adults only pool and restaurant plus a secluded adults only section on the beach.
  • Sandos Playacar gives stray cats a home at their Cuidad de Gatos where the cats are fed twice daily and all are spayed or neutered as well as current on their shots.
  • With their great location in the Playacar community, there is a nice 4 mile jogging loop within the gated community and Playa del Carmen is about a 5 mile run out and back.
  • The 5 gallon water jug in the room gives you plenty of fresh, filtered water while not wasting plastic from water bottles.
  • The wifi is fast, reliable and even good on the beach.
  • Delicious gourmet cupcakes and specialty coffees are included at the Cupcake Cafe.
