We purchased a Living Social deal for 5 days/ 4 nights for $999 double occupancy. Normally I'm wary of all-inclusive because it means bad service, drinks and food but Sandos is a pleasant exception for a great price.
Pros - food was delicious, several cuisine options. Drinks also include top shelf options, which I consider a rarity at all-inclusive. Grounds are well maintained and there is ample pool and beach area, which were almost all kid free! Spa was heavenly especially the sauna/steam areas with hot tub and cold plunge. So relaxing with attentive staff.
Cons - Beware the time share presentation! We didn't realize what we got ourselves into when we accepted champagne upon arrival. We ended up doing a "90 minute tour" for some massage and rental car discounts but we quickly realized that they were a very poorly organized sales team after we had to give our IDs and fill out the exact same paperwork 4 times. Then after an hour, we were told that the 90 mins hadn't started yet and they proceeded to give us a tour of what we had already seen. We were cordial and they weren't pushy. We just found it off putting and misleading.
Overall - definitely recommend. Just say no to timeshare presentation, even if they call it something else!
