Well after reading all the reviews here I wanted to add my comments after staying at the Royal Decameron for a week. We arrived on January 8, 2004. Check in: Check in was very smooth. There were 2 buses that left the airport filled with passengers from our plane heading to the Royal Decameron. They had set up 2 folding... More

Went with extended family (16 of us) over Christmas/New Years. Everyone had a good time. 1 sting-ray bite competently handled. Emphasis here on value for money. About 80% Canadian, 10% Mexican, 5% American and 5% others. Weather was PERFECT (nights cool enough to sleep at around 19, days between 27 and 33); we rarely needed air conditioning as it was...

This was our second visit to the Decameron, and I'll give you the useful facts: 1. The buffet food is hit or miss with too many misses. The quality and diversity seems to have declined somewhat since last year. Breakfast buffet is the best. You can make reservations in the morning for the specialty restaurants. Avoid the Thai restaurant. The... More

This was our 10th year for going to the Decameron. When we checked in several staff came up and said welcome home. We see some of the same staff from the very first time. Everybody is friendly and pleasent. We take the run of the house on rooms and have not had a bad one yet. The food is great.... More

We just got home on Jan 11 and had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend the Decameron to anyone. We are already planning to go back. The staff are the best and the activity staff are the best. They are so funny and are doing activites with the guests all day long by the pool. The evening entertainment is... More

As a Diabetic traveling to my first holdiay in Mexico I was a little leery. But the Royal DeCameron was fantastic. We holidayed from Dec 4th to 11th. Staff, food and accomodations were great. We stayed in the ground floor of Building 1. The bed was comfortable, but it had a foamy on top of the mattress. Other friends stayed... More

Just got back January 8, 2005 from Puerto Vallarta. Wow! What an excellent trip. The hotel was average, but you weren't in your room much so it didn't matter. The shows at the theater were a good time especially if it was audience participation. Take the whale watching/dolphin/snorkeling tour it was well worth the money. The service was great and... More

The Royal Decameron is the best hotel that I have been to. Everybody was extremely nice and polite. I went ober Christmas and New Year's. My sister also got married while we were there. Everything went well and everybody was really nice. Also, I have to say that the main reason the Royal Decameron is a place to stay is... More

My husband and I went again this year to the Decameron for 2 weeks (Dec.11-25). We had such a great time. All staff were excellent, especially Leo at the bar by the quite pool. We did the ATV tour but did not book at the hotel. If you have not read this tip already keep it in mind....book your tours/rentals... More

2nd time in 2 years at the Decameron and this is a really special place for those who wish to relax and have fun. The architecture of the Hotel and the grounds are simply superb. The blend of nature to the buildings is fantastic and the grounds - awesome! The tennis courts, the soccer field and wow! what a beach... More
