My family of 6 adults stayed at this resort for 3 days Nov8-11,2003 I think that we were the only people there from the U.S. Our neighbors from the north (Canada,B.C. etc) had fully occupied this resort. When we checked into our room,I felt that I was in "Motel 6" But after getting settled and touring this vast resort ,We... More

Stayed at the Royal Decameron from November 8th to November 15th, 2003. Generally, the value for money was excellent. The room and overall resort was clean, with nice grounds and nice beaches.The check-in was a disaster with long waits for rooms for the people from Calgary and Vancouver using Air Transat. Some people had to wait as long as 8... More

My wife and I just returned form a great week at the Royal Decameron (Nov 8-15) and let me just start out by saying IGNORE THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS!!! Some people are just way too spoiled or too fussy or both. We're fairly seasoned travellers and this was one of our funnest and most relaxing trips ever. We flew in from... More

I've been to The Decameron twice, once in April 1998 and again in Sept 2000. From the first moment my friend and I drove through the gates into the hotel we both sensed that this was a special place. It was dark and the gardens were lit seductively by lamps and the smell of the tropics was in the air.... More

My partner and I went to Royal Decameron Costa Flamingo's for 2 weeks in September 2003. We could not have asked for anything more. I was dreading going there because I had read all the reviews on the internet, and was imagining a Costa Del Sol (Spain) towerblock with a tiny swimming pool. All the rooms in this huge complex...

I vacationed at this hotel from Oct 25 to Nov 7, 2003. Myself and two other female friends who travel together to different places each year. The RD Complex is a very well kept property. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and would not hesitate to return and bring other friends. We found the property is large enough to provide... More

We spent the first week of November at the Royal Decameron and absolutely loved it! The hotel was clean and well kept, but I will admit that our air conditioner was noisy at first until we figured out how to fix it. If your a/c is too noisy, it's easy enough to leave it on high during the day, keep... More

October 19-27, 2003 Well, overall the trip was pretty good. The exterior of the hotel and grounds were kept up. It was nice to have a few pools to choose from, but there was always kids in the adult pools. Also, they don't let you swim in the pool past 8pm. What good is that if it's hot and muggy... More

Royal Decameron is a perfectly nice resort that will let you have a very nice holiday. I was worried about some of the nasty reviews posted but now see they were written by people who generally find fault with anything. We went for the first week in October- and were satisfied with everything. The room was plain- but comfortable- we... More
