Someone had stolen our flip flops while we were in the pool, we went to ask security if they had found them and they asked us to return at 7PM, we asked again at 7PM and the new guard on shift had not heard anything about it. We asked for a manager and the first woman we spoke with was... More

Treated like cattle during check-in; when we complained we were told that it wasn't the hotel's problem. Advertised services were not available due to overbooking. Beach area was small and crowded, filled up unless you got there at the crack of dawn. But the attitude of the staff was very disappointing.

The drinks are cheap and the hotel is old.the restaurants are so small in that point that you have to share your table with other people. There is no wifi in the room and the beach is public and across the street. Bed is comfortable and personnel is friendly

My boyfriend and I decided to try the place for a night. From the moment we walked in, we should have trusted our gut. We did not have a reservation so the police officer at the entrance told us, they were not going to be able to help us without one. We decided to try and the person from the... More

Not sure where to start. After staying 4 days at the Royal Decameron Baru with my husband and teenage daughter this hotel is a huge disappointment.. The room and bathroom are out dated. Bathroom only carried two towels. Had asked the cleaning lady for extra towels and she hands me one additional towel. The beds are hard. Stayed in the... More

The bad : Hotel looks like it was built in the 70's then upgraded in the late 80's, still uses room keys not the more secured room cards. The room and bathroom fixtures are very antiquated ! The AC was either broken or barely working during my entire stay, one of the three nights the AC blew humidity into the... More

The hotel had many activities on a daily basis from am to late at night, a nice pool and a good selection of food. The beach there was very narrow and populated with vendors trying to sell to you. In the surrounding area there were restaurants shopping and pharmacies and the hotel itself was well regulated and secure. Checkin was... More

This was the worst, filthiest hotel I have stayed in since my backpacking days. The place was so dirty and the room smelled so bad! The beds were awful, and the location very loud. The sheets were moldy and the floor so filthy we had to wear shoes. The common areas were run down and the food was terrible. They... More

The hotel is right in front on the ocean, with a semi private bay and with coastguards and military to help tourists, the "walled city" is also nearby so it's easy to travel there. The hotel has themed restaurants and one is located inside the walled city, if you decide to stay there are secure taxis to get you to... More

My room was located on the 20th floor and the view was amazing, was super clean with all amenities, air conditioner.... The hotel has 5 restaurants, pool, all inclusive!
