We stayed one week at the Barcelo Maya Tropical where we were married and then went to the El Dorado for our honey moon. I had read many reviews about this being the most romantic resort and it was rated a 5 star and was twice as much money as our first week. The Barcelo was an amazing resort with... More

We spent a full week at the resort and loved it! We like to escape to quiet, relaxing places and this resort fit the bill perfectly. The service was wonderful - we were brought drinks while lounging on the beach. I don't know that I will be able to use a lounge chair any longer after being spoiled by their... More

Lots of greenery everywhere. Winding paths and hammocks, beds on the beach, by the pools. Some really cool iguanas and geckos here and... More

We were there from Nov 30 to Dec 14 as a late anniversary, early Christmas present to ourselves. The grounds are lush and provide ample hideaways if you are seeking privacy. The rooms are no better/no worse than we have encountered in AI resorts throughout Mexico and Dominican Republic. The food, while beautifully presented, was somewhat bland after 2 weeks.... More

Stayed at the EDSS 2-9 December and this was our 6th visit back to the hotel. This year we took mother in law and she has never stayed at a resort like this one. The first day we arrived, she was treated like a queen. She even did an hour scuba lesson at the pool. Not bad for an 81... More

What a great hotel - this was our first visit to Mexico and we came away having had a very relaxing week at El Dorado.

As for faults there are few - the food... More
