    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.

    ... really nice, we have a good air con which we are glad about especially because the weather has picked up. The main tourist area is a street known as 5th avenue which is full of restaurants, shops and ice-cream parlours! Just off 5th avenue is the beach where we have spent most of our time! We found a really nice restaurant on the beach that we have been back ...

We then found a nice quiet spot by the pool and relaxed. For lunch we went ...

    Up at 3:00 am for a 6:15 flight. We arrived safe... easy flights... easy through customs... easy ride to the hotel. Arrived at the hotel at 10:30, checkin was at 4:00. What to do for 5 hours?

    After the talk we headed to dinner. Juan took us a restaurant off the main street so it wasn't too busy or expensive but the food and the service were really great. We got a free Margarita so I have tried the tequila in Mexico but I am sticking with the rum... This was our last night with Carolyn as she is flying home a day early tomorrow but the rest of us have one last night all together so we decided to save ourselves for that and it wasn't too late a ...
