We spent our honeymoon at the El Dorado Royale, and loved it. The resort was beautiful. We booked a swim up suite which we loved. My husband likes to sleep in and I get up early so it was a perfect place for me to go sit in the lazy river right outside our balcony and read a book in a lawn chair. Our room was recently renovated and it was very nice. Large room, with a big jacuzzi tub and separate shower. We also had a love seat and table & chairs for room service.
The resort was very large, but there were golf carts that were always cursing around and willing to pick you up if you would like. We enjoyed walking around everyday and finding new spots and pools to check out! The beach was a little rocky as we knew going into our stay but it still was very nice. My husband was able to snorkel and I was able to lay in a beach bed and watch!
The food was very good, the restaurants were very easy to get into we had no issues with waiting (however, it was August, which is slow season). We also had room service quite often. The drinks were great- make sure to try the Devil's Inside- we found the recipe and make them still at home!
The staff was wonderful and messages we got were very relaxing. The only complaint we had was since it was a slower time of year for the resort we were constantly asked if we would like to book a spa treatment. I don't mind be asked here and there but I would see the same women hour after hour and she would ask me the same question. Kind of annoying after a while.
We would go back again, or try another El Dorado. We had a great time! We also loved the Playa del Carmen area, we took the bus from the resort and had fun.
