Another great stay

caseyc0106 on Jul 03, 2022

We’ve been to Sandos Playa Car several times and have had a great stay each time. The resort is clean, the beach is amazing and the staff go above and beyond. Special shout out to Rox at the Royal Elite office at the Meeting Point. She was amazing and the most helpful person we’ve had in the Royal Elite office. She truly made our stay special. When eating at the main buffet ask for Vicente’s section. He was on point with our drinks, very personable and went above and beyond with his service. Of course, when you visit the Blue Moon Beach Bar you have to ask for Fabian. Our cups never went empty and he had a heavy pour, if asked. Finally, Rodrigo at the Premium Club in the Meeting Point provided the up-scale service, professional service I would expect at such a bar. Excellent service Rodrigo. Overall, another great stay in the books, can’t wait for our next stay in October.

My best vacation

Quiero agradecer la attention de Jose y Miriam en Acenue Bar, they are so professional and cute, the drinks are so delicious, our best drink it was margaritas en tequila shot. The beach is really precious and awesome
