We love El Dorado and have been there multiple times! The property is absolutely beautiful, the food is delicious and the service is superb! The spa is wonderful and a massage on the beach with the sounds of the surf and the gentle sea breeze is the ultimate in relaxation.

My wife and I usually do not stay at all inclusive resort. However, our stay at El Dorado Royale was excellent. The staff was very nice and they tended to our every need. The food and drinks were great. The portions were not overwhelming large. We spend two nights dining at Fuentes restaurant theater. Not only was the food delicious... More
