The Sandos Playacar Beach Resort is just 15 minutes from the vibrant town of Playa del Carmen. Its unique location, nestled on a long stretch of beautiful, white sandy beach, allows for a more private, intimate beach wedding ceremony with breathtaking ocean views. Wedding guests will enjoy the four major resort areas, including one that’s adults-only. Beyond the wedding festivities, there’s plenty to enjoy, including over 9 pools to explore, a sweat lodge and full-service spa, and even a mini-eco park on site to get close to the local wildlife and vegetation.
Sandos Playacar’s private beach location is highly recommended if you are looking for a quiet and intimate destination wedding with beach ceremony.
For a unique dinner rehearsal, or even reception, book a group table to the Brazilian Rodizo restaurant.

“This resort is good enough that I vacationed there two years in a row. I like the fact that it has it’s Adult Only sections for the breakfast buffet, pool and bar, and beach area. The food, entertainment, and drink choices are all good. I will consider returning again in the future.” – Kelly B. 3/18
“Good all-inclusive family beach resort. Many options of food with adequate quality, many themed restaurants. The real SHOW is the central area of the resort with different stores and an amazing auditorium/theater with high quality night shows. Be aware that many rooms are relatively far from the beach/pools, therefore a long walk is needed to move from/to some rooms. The hotel provide golf cars to move people around passing by at every 15 minutes in certain drop off points.” – Rodrigo R. 3/18
Overall I recommend this hotel.
“My daughter chose this resort because the location was a central location for all her guests, half flying from the East Coast and the other from the West Coast. Maria and Marisol, the wedding coordinators at Sandos Playacar, were AMAZING and accommodating, sending us pictures of everything we needed during the planning process. The main plaza at the resort was wonderful. It allowed all 72 of us to meet in a central area since the resort is really spread out.”- Pat R. 4/7/2017
