Stayed in block 4 which was convenient for restaurants, beach and pool. The beach was excellent and the vendors did not bother you if you said no. Water was warm and clear. Lots of bars around but no swim-up bar. Food and service were excellent and the rooms clean and comfortable, but somewhat outdated. Took several trips with Vallarta adventures... More

This was my second visit to the resort. The location is great. Close to shopping in Bucerias or less than half an hour into Puerto Vallarta. We had a great flight on WestJet. Check in was excellent. I had requested block 5 but no rooms were available there for our first 2 nights. We were put in block 3. The... More

We just spent the first week of Feb here and it is our 4th time at the Royal Decameron and it won't be the last. Right from the beginning we had a speedy checkin which was quite welcome after the chaos at the airport. We were taken to our room right away which was in block 5. The room was... More

Just got back from here and it was a great tip. The resort has quite a few activities on site and there is plenty to do near by. Our room was clean and well kept. The hot water was a bit of a wait tho. We only had one issue and it was dealt with immediately. The staff was great.

My husband and I just returned home from a 2 week vacation at the Royal Decameron. Here are the pro's and con's. Pro's: -CLEANLINESS of the rooms were impeccable. We were pleased to see that our room got made up every single day. Even if we slept in, our maid would come at whatever time I took off the "Do... More

We enjoyed our week here. The room was clean and about average for our "value" travels (16 trips down south now). The grounds were very clean and well maintained. There was no food allowed at the pools so that kept those areas very clean. (Then again, not getting to enjoy some food poolside was missed too). No wait service at... More

Nine night stay...too short. I can see why people keep coming back to this resort. The Decameron hasn't lost its Mexican charm. Far too many resorts are striving for the "contemporary" motif, not so here. This place has the ambience of being a guest in a true Mexican hacienda. The town of Bucerias is both quaint & has options for... More

My wife and I are just back from our second visit to the Royal Decameron (RD) resort in Bucerias, Mexico, right next door to Puerto Vallarta. We were there four years ago and returned this time (Jan. 20 – Feb. 3, 2016) with friends to introduce them to Mexico. RD is a great place to get a taste for Mexico.... More

Traveled Dec 22-29 2015 Christmas & enjoyed every minute especially the culture & people. The resort was very secure, Mexican/colorful, rooms outdated but clean with basics, grounds very clean/always improving, staff extremely friendly/helpful, buffet meals superb, al carte restaurants OK especially the Brazilian, Mexican & Caribbean. Booking al carte a bit frustrating/lineups, Pools well maintained, entertainment to be commended, market... More
