We stayed at the Decameron Aquarium and it was a run-o-the-mill all inclusive hotel. Rooms are very cool, the round buldings are built basically in the water. Very nice balaconies to relax and watch the sunset. Check-in and food service is a messy, complicated issue. At check-in you have to fight a mostly undisciplined crowd all trying to get checked...

We have traveled to Nicaraugua, Elsalvador, Cuba Dominican over the last 20 years and never felt the need to do a review until now. First of all the staff and customer service is wonderful, very helpful and friendly. The resort itself is clean as well as the rooms, although the rooms are out dated, but you are only there to...

Oh so much to say so I will trying and keep it brief: Was there Feb. 17 - 24 Good about the resort: Views, snorkelling at the docks, some of the staff had great customer service, they are constantly improving the cosmetic appearance of the resort (please note the word cosmetic), fresh fruit and seafood, great access to walk around...

Just returned from a 1 week stay (Feb 10-17) at the Royal Decameron Aquarium. We had read reviews before booking and knew what to expect, we were not disappointed. The only downsides for us were the front desk staff & internet (see below), everything else was great. RESORT: The over the water towers all joined by boardwalks was better than... More

Our group of 15 stayed at the Aquarium from January 27-Feb10, 2014. To be honest our stay exceeded my expectations. We had requested rooms close together and, to our surprise, we actually got them. We stayed in building 1 and our room was 117 which was on the 3rd floor. We had a lovely ocean view, the room was clean... More

This is the resort to go to if you like the ocean! The view is fantastic and the water is warm. The hotel property is clean and they are always cleaning, fixing and painting. The room has a small bathroom, but clean, the view we had was worth every penny! We were in tower 15 room 16, which had a... More

We were there from January 13th to 20th. Overall, the hotel is good. We got a room with an oceanview and all I can say is WOW. That was the highlight of the hotel. We visited other Decamerons, and although some were nicer and newer, the views at the Aquarium cannot be beaten. Rooms were very clean. There's a direct... More
