Having just had two terrible holidays in Egypt & Dominican Republic, I actually read at least 250 pages of reviews on trip advisor ( admittedly - after booking el dorado royale ) The majority of the reviews were fantastic. Some bad ones had me worried. I have just got back 24th June from the BEST 2 weeks at the BEST...

Excellent, could not fault it. Would go again. All the staff were so friendly and the food was good, plenty of choice of restaurants. Entertainment every night. The beaches were lovely and clean. There were lots of weddings taking place while we were there and would fully recommend the resort for this kind of holiday/celebration.

Just returned from a 5 day vacation at the El Dorado. We were there to celebrate the wedding of my nephew. Overall, I was very happy with the resort, but did feel that the marketing for this resort as a "gourmet" all-inclusive resort was a little mis-leading. I'll get to that in a minute....first the positives: Accomodations - The grounds...

spent the last two weeks at The El Dorado,first class resort.Food very good,facilities very good and cant speak highly enough of the staff.

Forgo the pool and soak up the sun on the cooler beach. Would...

We have recently celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary at the El Dorado Royale Spa & Resort. I must say without hesitation that this all inclusive resort is by far the most well managed and guest friendly location we've had the opportunity to stay at. From the moment we arrive until the time we checked out we were treated like royalty....

We have just returned from our Honeymoon at El Dorado Royale. It is definitely the best all inclusive resort we have ever been to. The food was excellent - plenty of gourmet restaurants to choose from and no need to book which made our stay even better. The Honeymoon package we received was amazing including a bottle of champagne on...

“We stayed in a swim up room this time, but with as little time as we spend in our room the lower priced rooms are probably a better value.”

“Don't bother with the Royal Suite upgrade - the room is little different than the Luxury Suite and the only differences we saw were a) a private butler service (which was very good) and b) a line up of four 750's of your choice of spirits and two bottles of wine ... the latter wasn't really worth paying for unless you plan to drink like a fish in your suite vs at one of the dozen all-inclusive bars on property.”
