Pros and cons of Sandos Cancun
- The resort has been open for a while so it does not look modern on the outside, but it has been remodeled a few times and the grounds are always impeccable.
- Sandos Cancun is just 20 minutes from the airport! Time is EVERYTHING while on vacation and the fastest I can be to having a margarita on the beach, the better.
- Sandos Cancun performs only 1 wedding per day. No one will steal your thunder on this magical day and all the attention will be directed to you and your wedding guests.
- There is no coffee shop, so if you are in a hurry or just need an afternoon pick-me-up, you must visit a sit-down restaurant.
- Kids will not be as entertained as the grown-ups, since there is no kids club and no kids-oriented activities organized throughout the day.
- The resort is right next to Secrets the Vine, a very tall and large hotel. You will get lots of shade thanks to it, but pools will not have much sun so they feel a little chilly!
