We just returned from El Dorado Royale and I have to say it was the best all inclusive resort we have ever visited! The service was incredible, the food was excellent, the grounds were impeccable and most importantly the staff was very gracious, exceedingly friendly and just went above and beyond. I wish service in ours and other countries I...

This resort is beautiful. They have a huge property with lots of shore line so you never feel crowded. The food and restaurants are wonderful, the best feature of the resort. In particular our lunches at the Mexican restaurant and dinner at the Japanese restaurant were to die for. Really enjoyed the main bar and night entertainment. Had a great...

Can't think of one bad thing about this resort, was totally amazed with the hospitality we were shown at the resort and Mexico in general. My husband said he never wanted to visit Mexico, but he was totally impressed, wished the citizens of the USA would take a hint,especially at the airports.

Absolutely beautiful grounds! My wife and I really appreciated the eco-friendly and green approach to everything this resort did. Just be sure to take a moment and READ what you should do if you want new, clean towels. Also READ when and where all the activities are daily. We missed out on the free bicycle tour of the grounds, greenhouse,...

The resort is fantastic! I was only there for a day-really fast getaway. But I'm looking forward to going back. The food is excellent. The basic room is luxurious. The staff is incredibly friendly and efficient. The entertainment is good & plentiful. And even in the middle of a tropical storm, it's a great place for a vacation.

I learned that the tough time about reading these reviews is you don't really know where the reviewer is coming from nor do you really know how complete and fair the review is. So I'll start my review off a bit differently. My wife and I are about as common people as you'll find in the midwest U.S. We are...

“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.”
