      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.

      Hardly able to walk on her own, Virginia led us to the ocean. By the time we got there, I was holding all her belongings and Lee was holding her up and making sure she didn't slip and fall again. Once we got to the ocean, Virginia slipped into a bit of a panic mode.

The ocean was so clear, nothing could hide as we paddled through the pristine water. The sun was pelting down but it was an incredible experience wadding through the shallow waters looking for sea life. After spending a good 40mins in the water Stuie asked me to paddle back ...

I know that the chairs are even closer at the pool, but for some reason I expect that at a pool, and like a little more "privacy", if you will, at the beach. If you have read my blog about Jumby Bay, you will see that I don't typically like beaches but LOVED theirs! This is the typical beach that I tend to stay away from only because I don't like to feel so crowded at that beach.
