We have just returned from a 10 day holiday at this hotel. Its an amazing hotel, spotlessly clean, the staff are so friendly and hardworking. Cannot fault it at all. Cocktails are the best I have had in an all inclusive and the food is simply delicious. Would definitely return.

Lovely spot. Muriel the yoga instructor was excellent. Sergio the entertainment rep was perfect for his job. Food and service - simply wonderful. A little busy, probably because of the Easter week. We had to reserve lounge chairs by the pool early in the morning - our only headache.

Torn between El Dorado Royale and another destination, your wait is over! Just do it, sign up for EL Dorado. It's worth every penny, dime, cent, farthing, whatever you country's currency. This is the second year we've been there after feeling like we didn't get enough the first time around. Guess what, I'd go there again and again, and again....

Great resort, great food, great service. However finding quiet has become more and more elusive. This was our 7th visit to this resort the only thing we can complain about are those who wish to get drunk loud and obnoxious. We'll also never figure out why the resort would waste see space with a production building and a starbucks

Wonderful restful 10 day stay at El Dorado Royale. Beautiful Resort and very well taken care of! We stayed in the Premium Section, Villa #1 with a lovely room and great view of the ocean. Relaxing pool area with the wonderful amenity of the Health Bar, and LOVED the salt water pool right on the beach! Terrific restaurant selection with...

Had a great time. Food very good and plenty of room to go walkabout around the resort. Only two very minor criticisms. Not enough sun beds available and existing could be of better quality, and the other is that some of the restaurants and bars have the air conditioning turned down too far, so it is a little chilly. Did...

El Dorado has everything an active couple could want! They have lots of great restaurants. Amazing bars, loved the Martini Bar! You could swim and relax or try out Tequila tasting all in one afternoon. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The staff are very friendly and very helpful.

Having just spent two weeks at the resort, I can say that it is excellent. We stayed in a premium swim-up room and would highly recommend this if you're looking to chill but also socialise. The staff, notably Jorge (health bar pool), Angela and Karimbe (pool waitresses), are fantastic and cannot do enough for you - everybody is warm and...

“Rooms in the 1100 or 1000 building are close to the main lobby and don't require a shuttle to get to your room”

“If you don't want a swim up room (not worth paying for in my opinion) don't get a room in a block of swim up rooms - other guests can be out there very late and be very loud!”
