My husband and I visited the Sandos Playacar in February. The reason we picked this hotel was for the kite-boarding lessons by PDC Kiteboarding, They can also give you a hotel discount. The staff at PDC was great, very professional. Be aware that kite-boarding season is mainly Jan-Feb, but you can contact them for more info. Even in February, we couldn't kite half the time because the wind wasn't strong enough.
The resort was great, we enjoyed the evening entertainment more than some other resorts we have been to. The entertainment team works hard, and there are great activities for the kids. I also liked the movie hour around dinner time every evening.
What we didn't like was the need to go to guest services often. Booking a-la-carte restaurants and using the internet room could only be done at certain times, and service was lacking here.
Bicycles are free to borrow, so a bike-ride to Playa-del-Carmen was fun.
The water and beach are beautiful. This hotel is the last in a long chain of hotels, so there is nice quiet beach walking in the other direction.
