We were the first guests to visit this new resort Dec 20-23:
CAVEAT: This resort is the former Desire/Temptations property and we were frequent visitors. Although we are saddened to see our favorite playground close, we are favorably impressed to find a suitable replacement we will continue to enjoy.
The Royal Decameron Los Cabos is a beautiful resort located on the beach closest to the airport. With only 150 rooms, it offers more intimate and tranquil accommodations than the mega resorts nearby. What distinguishes the Royal Decameron is the personal attention of the staff. Bartenders, entertainment and wait staff consistently referred to us by name. Assistance was offered before having to ask. The all-inclusive pricing makes the resort a tremendous value.
The resort offers 2 large pools (a huge new one) with swim up bars, expansive sun decks with plenty of lounge chairs and an extended beach area with umbrellas and palapas adjacent to the new pool. The newly renovated rooftop Jacuzzi with swim up bar is for adults only and provides spacious views of the coastline and an intimate and tranquil respite from the familial pool area. Two separate restaurants feature both buffet and a la carte dining. We found the buffet superior to others we have experienced and the a la carte menus and service rival most exceptional restaurants. Special orders are welcome and accommodated. After dinner entertainment segues into nightly disco until wee hours of the morning for the more energetic set.
The small community of San Jose is within walking distance (or a $5 taxi). There you will find ample shopping and restaurants filled with ex-pats and visitors. Each Thursday features an art walk exposing the local extensive and popular art community. San Lucas is a 25 minute taxi ride for more glamorous shopping and extended nightlife.
While the resort is brand new, there are a few adjustments to be made. We will save the nit-picking to the critics. Overall, our experience was outstanding.
If you are considering your first trip to Cabo you should look no further as the all-inclusive Royal Decameron is your best choice. If you are familiar with the area, we recommend you visit this newly remodeled resort as we believe you will agree it offers the best alternative to enjoy Los Cabos.
