    Long review for families! I picked this resort based off reviews and price that was reasonable for 6 people (2 rooms). First time to PDC. We had a shuttle included round trip for airport which was great. Resort seemed half empty or less. Very quiet. No wait for anything. Family of 6 (kids age: 18,15,14,9) for 7 nights in the 9000 building (family area). Glad they gave us connecting rooms I requested. One room was king bed with a bunk for kids and the second room had 2 queens beds and fold out couch. The bad was the couch mattress was moldy and we closed it back up and could not use it. The rooms smelled musty/moldy but the AC was cold and wonderful. All inclusive was fantastic. Although drinks were weak and seemed watered down. Mini fridge was stocked daily with soda and beer. No issues with restaurant reservations. French and Asian were delicious. Argentine and Brazil were just okay. Buffet was always wonderful and 4 kids were happy all week. Room service was good. We ordered something every day. We did the sister resort one day at Caracol, was so great to experience another resort for free! And they had mayan ruins to walk thru. Taxi is cheaper than getting a seek n go shuttle. The time share pressure was annoying! Especially after a LONG, hot check in when we had been up since 3 am traveling all day with kids who were hungry. They mentioned time share presentation daily but we never went to it. Beach was the best! Best beach in playa! Pools were fun but the 9000 pool was not open yet, they were prepping it still. We saw monkeys, iguanas, birds, and lots of coati. Nightly shows were like vegas, great singers! The guys running taxis out front were so helpful. We walked the resort most of the time but the shuttle drivers were so friendly and we spoke broken spanish with them. Ellio the shuttle driver was awesome. Jose Luis at the main pool bar was great and so was Milo in guest services. We had a fantastic stay and would come back again. We also got engaged while we were here!

    We chose Sandos Playacar Adult Select for a stay vacation to celebrate our Anniversary for a three night stay.. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and are looking at booking again this month. Great facilities, great staff and oh my...the monkeys. We loved feeding them although they woke us at an early hour. Want to say how much we enjoyed MARKO and CIPRI at the adult pool. MARKO kept us entertained and moving and Cipri kept our glasses full. The main buffet was open for breakfast and lunch. Reservations can be made for dinner easily. The lobby is a distance from everything but there are golf carts to take folks around if necessary. My only negative was that not enough info was given as to what Adult Select privileges included. We only discovered the Premium Bar (great service from (I think) Rodolpho the last night. All in all lots of eating places, beautiful beach and pool, bars and service. What more could we ask for. Looking forward to returning.
