      Thanks so much for posting these new packages! I've been kind of looking into Sandos too...
      These packages are much better than this years, and finally a resort that is actually trying to REWARD bringing more people instead of penalizing!

      Like other posters though, I feel a bit nervous about possibly choosing this resort though with so little information. It is nice to hear the bit of positive feedback that's been posted =)

        Lupita the WC did get back to me and answered all of my questions. She seems very accommodating and answered all of my questions. They do beach receptions but you must have 40 people at minimum for that.

          I'm a Sandos Playacar Bride. Just about all the reviews of the property were
          very good on tripadvisor.com. I then began trying to contact WC to
          get more info. and available dates to narrow down my top 2 to 3. I went
          with Sandos, and they seem to be the "Best Buy" for the price.

          Communications was delayed at times, and I must admit, I didn't think about the fact that she may have had weddings going on for the 2-3 days I was frustrated and didn't here anything back. I finally did get a response to confirm available dates. And the staff I feel is trying to do better. I got a reply email from someone else to let me know that WC was on vacation the week after Labor Day.

          The WC also got rave reviews on tripadvisor, well the few people who posted wedding info. but that was equally important since I'll be trying to make arrangements out of the country.

          WC just recently sent me their 2009 wedding packages.

          Also, my travel agent had another bride who married here and said that everything was great, except for rain, and they moved the wedding inside (it was in June, I believe).

          Let's keep this thread going or create our own Sandos Thread!!! (I haven't
          found many of us on the forum). KIT

            Hi everyone.
            We are getting married at the Sandos in 27 days...October 30!! I agree I was a bit nervous because communication with the WC seemed to be delayed but when my date got closer the communication came quicker and more often so I agree with other posters that we need to remember we aren't the only ones getting married and they deal with time sensitive weddings first and fit in what they can inbetween.

            If you haven't been on Trip Advisor it is a great site for information with reviews and pictures posted. Sandos is supposed to have the nicest and biggest beach (due to erosion from hurricanes) in the Playa Del Carmen area and they sure seemed to the best rates for what you get. We weren't looking for total luxury and it is a very small wedding so we feel confident that we have chosen the place right for us. I'll post after we get to back to let you know how everything went.

            FYI - We are headed to Isla Mujeres for our honeymoon the week after, renting a beach front cottage. Really looking forward to that.

              Good luck with your upcoming wedding! Please make sure to post a review with lots of pictures when you get back. We're still in the planning stage of where to have our wedding and I just came accross this resort. It's decently priced compared to a lot of the other resorts and I just want to make sure we're still getting a really nice resort.
