We traveled to El Dorado Royale to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. It was well worth it! The service was FANTASTIC! Our room was nice, we had a swim up suite with a King bed--great shower and bathroom area with a nice sitting area. We had a short deck area before entering the water with 2 chairs--very nice. The hammock... More

I would completely recommend this resort to anyone wanting to get away and just slow down from the normal chaos of life. Everyone there was extremely helpful and friendly. We went for nine days for our honeymoon and it was well worth the trip. The food was fantastic and the culinary theater was a unique experience. The resort holds many... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed in this hotel on our first holiday together. This hotel exceeded my expectations! Ignore the fussy eaters, the complainers about noise, and tipping- tipping is a choice, you are not forced to tip in anyway! There are areas to avoid the noise, the quiet pools are extremely quiet, the livelier pool is fun and active!... More

This is the first hotel that we have been to twice. The first time was about 7 years ago. Since then the resort has vastly explanded. Other hotels have been added to the complex, some of which can book at certain restaurants and the standard suites, which we were in, could only book at 2 restaurants. The plus points first....

My husband and I spent a week at this resort. We booked the basic room, we got the first floor room out of two floors with a personal concierge designated to our area. They're great because they help you book reservations for the hot restaurants that are amazing and all inclusive of course plus they help get you other things.... More
