So after the room fiasco everything with the hotel went smoothly.  The beach was full of life with every day being a different theme.  Jamaica, Copacabana, Thai, Malibu, and Daytona were some of the themes and the entertainment staff would dress according to the day.  There were always different events like a giant hamster ball, bubble soccer, volleyball, and even beer pong!  The buffet food at the hotel was mediocre but the nicer restaurants - which you do not have to make reservations! - had very good food.  The French restaurant was our favorite.  The rooms were sufficient, nothing fancy but nice.  The bed was comfortable and the shower was big enough for two :).  The main complaints we had were the following:

-manager was supposed to be in touch with me and never did

-better buffet food

-there was no swim up bar in the regular sections (only one was in the adult side)

-the only bar you could sit at was the lobby bar

-the beach bar was on the adult side of the beach..not convenient

-no waiters on the beach

-very segregated

The last day we were there we did the Give me All Challenge at Selvatica.  This was $200 which is pricey but well worth it.  We started the day with a swim in a cenote followed by driving a Polaris through the jungle.  Then we went on to do the tarzan which is an extremely high roller coaster that you hang from by a harness and hold on to handle bars over head.  Then we went on to do the bungee jump and the sky walk followed by the super man and a short break.  After that,  all zip lines!! This is a must for anyone who is an adrenaline junky!!

All in all, it was a good trip.  The water We love Riviera Maya and will definitely continue to visit.

It is one thing to dream big, but actually doing something about them is very inspiring. I am a student and I dream of becoming the next Steve Jobs. I have done my research on his life, I am currently the top of all my classes, and I am doing everything I can in order to reach my dream, just like you. Your family seems very wonderful and that trip sounded priceless. It must have been fun to experience nature like that. The reason why I ended up here is because my parents are asking me to search for a venue for our next family outing. I think I have found a winner! Thank you for sharing this with us!

I know you've had bit of complaints about your experience in Sandos Playacar but the way I see it, you still had a great time there. It's true that the foods they serve there were all tasty since I've read rave reviews about their restaurants there. Yes, the whole thing may not be perfect, but at least you get to experience what that place has to offer!
