My sister hosted her destination wedding at El Dorado Royale over Memorial weekend this year. The resort serves as a great place for destination weddings as it is all-inclusive and allows people to do their own thing, or participate in big groups. Overall, I think the price matches what you are getting in the resort here. It isn't a 5... More

Although the hotel itself seemed to be of a very high standard and the staff on site exceptionally helpful, subsequent events have somewhat soured my opinion of both the hotel owners, Karisma and the travel company, Thomson and I am very unlikely to visit this hotel again. During the final few days of our holiday, I contracted a stomach bug,... More

I just love this resort and everything that comes with it. Food was amazing, service was fabulous. Clean rooms, clean resort! I would go back here every year if I could afford it :) It's worth every penny!

My husband and I stayed at El Dorado Royale Aug. 7-11. We were able to plan this last minute getaway to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary with the help of Beach Bum Joanne from Beach Bum Vacation :-) We knew that we wanted to go to Mexico and Joanne was extremely helpful and had a lot of information. We told... More

Me and my wife went at the end of June for 2 weeks and loved every minute of it. The room, grounds and staff all helped to make this the honeymoon we had dreamed of. The food was amazing everywhere we went. The portions we're a little on the small side in some of the restaurants but I ordered 2... More

The El Dorado Royale Casitas is an excellent property with the best amenities in an all-inclusive. The staff were fabulous, including Victor at Jo Jos, Santiago at the Casitas pool bar, Irving and Daisy at the pool. I cannot compliment the cleanliness, consistent service, quality of food and all-around happy and friendly environment that this resort maintains. I am extremely... More

We have recently returned from a 2 week stay and we loved every minute of it. We had a swim up room and this was excellent as was the service from all the staff. We had the honeymoon package and our brilliant concierge Daniel organised the candlelight dinner on the beach and a special breakfast in bed for us at... More

This was our second visit to Mexico, and this place is outstanding. The food is to the highest standard. I don't normally eat breakfast but the fresh berries were delicious with yoghurt. The delightful Carmen then made me a delicious omelette and I then finished off with smoked salmon and soft cheese baguette. You can eat al carte for breakfast... More
