    The hotel overall was very accommodating. We were offered complimentary champagne while checking in and a golf cart ride to our room because it was pouring down rain. The rain didn't stop for three days so the hotel staff actually built bridges so that guests wouldn't have to walk through the water.
    There are seven restaurants on the resort grounds and all have pretty decent food, except the late night buffet (but what do you expect?). The staff is responsible for different activities throughout the day (zumba, beach volleyball, game room, etc.) and the resort holds nightly shows at their theater so there is always plenty to do. We saw the Michael Jackson concert and were pleasantly surprised.
    The hotel also allows multiple companies to work out of their activity area in order to assist you in booking excursions. We used the company Best Day and were very impressed with the professionalism the representative showed. She was amazing!
    I loved that the Resort was Eco friendly and that there were wild animals walking around us at all times and that they placed recycling bins near the walkways for you to place your reusable cups in. All of our drinks were given to us in either glass or plastic recyclable cups.
    We read other reviews before our trip that mentioned an overwhelming amount of mosquitos or that the beach shouldn't be walked on barefoot. We, however, didn't encounter any of these issues. Overall, I was very happy staying at the Sandos Caracol Eco Resort & Spa.

    It was a great vacation. The grounds and buildings are beautiful Mexican style decor. The service was good and the food at the buffet was outstanding. There are several restaurants at the resort that served good food. It's an all inclusive resort, so there was plenty to eat and drink. Water sports and para-sailing makes for fun adventures.

We were driven to our suite building in a little golf car and deposited at our lovely room which is huge with two double beds (in case one of us gets in a huff) a free mini bar, a balcony, a living room area, a large bathroom consisting of fancy shower AND large jacuzzi bath and enough wardrobe space to house all of Dan's chinos - we were most pleased. We decided to change out of ...

    Well, it's been a busy couple of days! We've got a nice little routine going now. Breakfast about 9ish, then back to the room to get our beach stuff and put our sun cream on, then off to the pool/beach. We usually base ourselves near the pool because it's quieter as the beach is quite small and so you end up being really close to other people. Most of the people on there are Italian and super loud, so I'd rather ...

    You can understand how relaxed we were when we finally did leave, and capping it off with the Italian restaurant that night, another day was done. It was certainly a lifestyle we could get used to!
