  • Family with children

    The beach was beautiful and I liked the all-inclusive package as it made everything esier.

    I feel there was a lack of information, the only time we were told anything was when they were trying to sell tours.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    I have never stayed at a better hotel. Everything was excellent. The group I was traveling with was all very satisfied. The best thing was the friendly and helpful staff.

  • Older travelers

    The nature and wildlife at sandos was wonderful along with the oriental resturaunt we had reservations for. The beach was beautiful and expansive. Loved the "swing" bar!!!

    1. The cashier at the front desk was rude when he called another guest ahead of me(after I had waited ~10minutes) then proceeded to "chat" with him. 2. our short stay only allowed us to eat in one of the specialty resturaunts and the buffet was much lower quality. 3. other guests throughout the entire resort were smoking constantly- we could not get away from the cigarette smoke- even at the adults only pool! 4. the only available "hot tub" was at the spa and was available for 15 minutes/ day. the jetted tub near the adult pool was actually cooler than the pool itself.

  • Older travelers

    In Select Club's Pool, you are not allowed to have any snack while drinking

  • Couple
    10.0

    Unbelievable. At check in when informing that we were staying at the Select Club. We were assigned a personal consiearge for the week. She took us to a special area where we were checked in, and given our wrist bands. She went over all the restaurants and the times they were open. Was an amazing week. We have already booked another week for later in the summer

  • Couple

    Excellent choice. Great hotel great stuff, food and facilities. Big and comfi room

    There are children and you cant avoid it altough you have your own area and you get relexed It was good if there were shuttle buses from and to the hotel

  • Couple
    8.8

    Very nice, fresh, spatious and clean room, standard above expectations. Having access to the Select area with pool was a big bonus, a lot calmer around the pool area. Restaurants were good, food was okay to good. The Mexican buffet was better than the International one. Most of the food was okay or better. Service was really good, staff courteous and service minded.

    Laundry service and spa was quite pricy, prices on the high scale of things, practically same as in Sweden.

  • Group of friends
    6.2

    Clean Rooms.

    Food was average. Staff was not honest. No WiFi in the rooms. 10 minute walk to beach from select rooms. Sewage issues.

  • Couple
    8.8

    Nice hotel, nice and large facilities. Nice big rooms. 5 good restaurants with different cousines.

    There is no internet overall on the hotel. There is only free internet in two spots on the hotel area. It took 1,5 day for the roomservice to deliver our ordre. And still they didn't have any white wine. There where no menu / infomation on the hotel in the room. We asked for it, because we were told it excisted (they just didn't had enough for all rooms) They were not willing to make a copy of it. It was difficult to get an answer from the staff, and we where all the time forwarded to other staff members.

  • Single
    5.4

    I have one question; why do they call themselves "Adults only"? I booked because I thought there would be only adult people there or mostly adult people but turned out to be basically only families. A real disappointment and felt tricked by it, was totally wrong place for me single and just expensive.

  • Couple
    8.2

    A nice room and to pay extra to get the hot tube was definately worth it! A nice pool area only for adults and also very good to have a space for "exclusive"- guests with good sun- chairs as well as close to the bar.

    The staff did not inform clearly about the routins for dinner- booking and all restaurants were fully booked, it was only possible to eat at the buffet- places at the evenings.

  • Couple
    8.8

    The staff was amazingly friendly. They repeatedly went above and beyond anything they had to do. They tolerated my middling Spanish (even though their English is better than my Spanish and it would have been easier to speak English). They were always smiling and always greeted you with an, "Hola."

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    enjoyed it .nice location ,good value.

    balcony too small. would have liked to dine in the a la carte restaurants ,would have paid extra, told our stay was not long enough to avail of that.
