If you are looking for a great all adult all inclusive then look no further. We were there for our honeymoon April 23-30. First impression... Great customer service. We were there before check in time so they held our luggage and we toured the property and ate lunch. Our concierge CeCe (nickname) we absolutely loved her. She is a great...

Every part of our trip was made special by the wonderful and friendly staff. We weren't celebrating anything in particular, but everyone treated us as if we were. The food and drinks were great and there were no "surprise charges" for anything we otherwise thought was included. The only bummer was that wifi was not free. This was clearly stated...

This was our first time traveling to Mexico and El Dorado Royale. We stayed for 7 nights, and any less would have been too short (wish I could spend my whole summer there!). The food was amazing at all the restaurants. The beach and pool were very refreshing and activities provided by the K Team were very enjoyable. I would...

This is the second time that we have booked at El Dorado Royale. This is the second time we have come back completely satisfied as well. We once again booked through Beach Bum Vacations (If you are going for an Anniversary or a Wedding make sure to use Melissa!) and she helped set up a wonderful vacation. I never quite...

This was the perfect Honeymoon getaway! My wife and I had never been to an all inclusive resort and we were treated well! Our stay could not have gone better! We would definitely love to return to the area (Riviera Maya) since the beach was fantastic. Food was great! Definitely left FULL after trying many different appetizers, entrees, and desserts....

So where does one start ! Was it the greeting glass of champagne on arrival to check in ? Or the total attention to the whole process ? A stunning lobby and ambience !

We stayed six days in paradise in the 2500 Casitas. The personal attention to detail is amazing. The staff is so friendly and accommodating. The entertainment at night was high quality. Each section of the casitas come with their own personal concierge and bartender at poolside. The most popular expression they have is "my pleasure." However, it was our pleasure...

My wife and I went here on our Honeymoon and it was absolutely perfect. A very good couples resort! We booked through Beach Bum Vacations and our rep was Carey!

“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!”
