    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.

I throw everything together, call for someone to get my bags, rush back to the pool to give Amberley the key, say goodbye, call a buggy to take me to the lobby and then realise how hot and sweaty I am again! Jess comes with me to the lobby where Sabrina and Kath are waiting for me as we are all going to the airport together. I check out..... call first aid to redo my wounds (worst job ever by this one) and say our farewells. Its a ...

We decided that it was a great way to explore the island and the last thing we wanted was our 'holiday' neatly slapping itself onto our asses. As we ran, the sweet salty air was thick with humidity, but a nice ocean breeze made running slightly bearable. The island had a slogan of 'go slow", we really felt we were breaking the rules as we ran along the ...

    ... decided o leave Playa del Carmen early. Id packed and caught a taxi to the bus station by 7:30 and i was on a bus heading to cancun by 8. It was a lovely quick drive of less than an hour to Cancun bus station and then a further twenty minute taxi ride to the Roal Islander. I had breakfast. In one of the restaurants then sat by the pool until i could check into my room at twelve. I spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing on the beach before going back ...

    Afterwards, we had a little lunch by the beach,

    watched their sea lion show,

    and then rented snorkeling equipment

    and walked into the water to head towards the "underwater sculptures" where the fish hang out. We didn't stay in the water too long, nor did we go too far, so we really ...

By mid afternoon each day the beach was transformed as hotels set up all the paraphernalia for the numerous weddings that took place and once those were over the tables and chairs came out for the all inclusives' buffet dinner under the stars.

    At night we joined the crowds and strolled along Fifth Avenue, spoiled for choice when ...
