I really hate to find fault in El Dorado Royale, because it is a beautiful property, but it is lacking in some very important needs of the vacationer. Just returning today, I stayed at El Dorado Royale from 7/22/16 to 7/27/16, with a good friend, who is a member. Not trying to speak for the friend(member), but before we arrived... More

Great long weekend getaway! We went with another couple. First rate service all around. The food was delicious (Gabriel at Santa Fe was awesome). The activities were enjoyable: couples massage at the spa, bike riding (Alex got us going and Bruno was a great guide), horseback riding at Bonanza which was on the property (Josh was the consummate escort and...

My husband and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary at El Dorado Royale from 7/20 - 7/24. The resort is beautiful and the employees work very hard to keep the grounds pristine. Everyone was super friendly and always greeted us with a smile. Initially, we stayed in a Premium Swim Out room (room 102). At first sight, the room... More

Great service, amazing restaurants, everything is wonderful. But....if you would rather be on the beach than at the pool.......the beach is rocky and the sand is rather course. We don't go to the beach anymore.

Mixed feelings about this resort. Went with my husband for a quiet, relaxing vacation. However, it turned sour mid week with people coming for weekend party. All week long it was peaceful, had poolboy cleaning the pool, scrubbing it, making sure everything was 5*. However, it quickly became awful with these partygoers and their smokes in the pool. They poured... More

This was my husband and my first trip to Mexico, and our first all inclusive resort and I must say that the El Dorado Royale set the bar extraordinarily high. Before we booked, we read a lot of reviews here and also scanned pictures on Instagram using the location tag to see what we would be in for. We most... More

As I am writing this review I am sitting in the airport waiting to board my plane to NY. Firstly do not believe all you read on this site. I give this resort 4 1/2 stars. The grounds and rooms are immaculately kept. The staff works extremely hard to make sure all needs are met. We had a premium swim... More

We stayed at both El Dorado Royale and Casitas for a total of two weeks for our destination wedding and honeymoon, respectively. To begin with, our wedding, despite making all arrangements over the phone and on line, turned out flawlessly! Dana and Aline, the wedding coordinators are true professionals that are a pleasure to work with. They had an answer... More

Wonderful Honeymoon in Paradise. Service was great, food was amazing, the grounds are gorgeous. We were able to sit back and just relax. We will be back soon. This is one of our favorite spots to go and relax.
