This is our third summer at the El Dorado Royale and as I have stated it just gets better and better! Needless to say we are planning to visit yet again next year. I cannot see that we could visit a better resort anywhere else and we just love the Riviera Maya and all the people there. This year we... More

This was a great resort! We had a swim out suite, which was really cool! the food was very good. The only thing was there were a couple of restaurants that you had to make reservations, and it seemed we missed getting them in on time. So there were 2 places we didn't get the chance to visit. Also the... More

My wife and I spent 6 nights at the El Dorado Royale resort in late June, 2014. We both had an incredible time together; the lovely staff attended to our every need, our personal concierge Angelita was exquisite in helping us make reservations and coordinate trips, and all of the restaurants had fantastic service and a great variety of (delicious)...

Stayed with a large group; 200+ and where fortunate to get a room at the newly built Generations. I had also bought a bottle of Don Julio Real at the airport which was "The Bomb" that everyone should try. Really enjoyed the Mediterranean restaurant and the Italian restaurant at Casitas. My suggestion for the Mediterranean is to maybe have a... More

First thing is first - if you are reading through reviews and you have NEVER had the all-inclusive experience, stop worrying, you will love this resort. No need to read further... go enjoy your vacation - However, read through my tips at the bottom of this review. If you have been doing all-inclusive resorts since you were 12 (like myself)... More

Great resort for couples! The food was excellent with several different places to eat. The rooms are comfortable and the staff were all very friendly. The only thing I think may be a problem is the beach is not as nice as some people would probably like, but the resort has so many activities and entertainment going on you won't... More

My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon here. Overall it was a wonderful experience, save for the issues we had due to mistakes made by the travel agency we went through. We have no complaints about the resort. It was absolutely beautiful, very clean, the staff was friendly, and food was spectacular. We arrived on Monday 07/14... More

Its taken me too long to write this review really since our visit was in November 2013 So for that reason I can't really remember many of the names of the bars, pools and restaurants we visited but have to agree with most of the recent reviews I've just read. We tried to visit all of the bars and restaurants... More
