I gave the resort 4 stars because overall it is a very nice place, Relaxing and peaceful with good pools, good service at the pool bars, restaurants, and spa. The rooms are very comfortable and the staff throughout does everything they can to insure a pleasant stay. I was however quite disappointed in the beach as it is not really...

This was my first time out of the country and my husband's second. We had never been to Mexico. We decided to go for our honeymoon and El Dorado Royal looked like it would be just what we wanted. This was our first time at an all inclusive resort and we were so excited. I want to start off staying...

Fantastic honeymoon, the resort, gourmet food and customer service are of the highest standards. With many restaurants to choose from within the resort there are plenty of cuisines to choose from. It truly is a paradise and exceeds expectations.

My husband and I enjoy each vacation at El Dorado Royale. We couldn't ask for a better resort. As members we look forward to our time here. The rooms, service, restaurants, all staff members make us feel so welcome . After all - it is home away from home.

Having just returned from a holiday at this hotel I felt it appropriate to mention how helpful the personal concierge was while we were there. My partner had an accident which meant we needed medical help, transfer of room and various items supplied. One trip to see Arlett and Zully and everything was taken care of! Nothing was too much...

This was my 17th visit to this property. Obviously it is a favorite of mine. Menus were all changed since February. I understand this for people who return 3 or 4 times a year but whereas in the past I had never had a bad meal I can not say that about this visit. The food is just more fussy...

Property is beautiful. Food is good but could use more fish/ seafood. Staff is great! Kicks bar area and staff are #1. Could use some music there. drinks would be better if fresh fruit was used. Plenty of beach chairs available. Didn't like the no sleeves at JoJo's for breakfast n lunch..it's a beach eatery not formal.

Easily the best all inclusive I've been to. Service, the friendly staff, the food, rooms, facilities and the hotel in general - brilliant. Would recommend this holiday to anyone. Louis at the pool bar deserves a mention - top bloke. Restaurants clean and every meal was incredible. Plenty of different bars to never be over crowded. Will go back one...

We went to El Dorado Royale for a destination wedding (same sex couple). Everything was perfect from the service to the food to the location. Our wedding coordinators made our wedding day the best it could be, from start to finish. The perfect vacation for us and all of our family and friends!

“Swim up suite is just perfect - its great to have the pool there to dip into when its too hot. Also you can swim round the lazy river to one of the swim up pool bars at the main pools. The room does need a bit of upgrading but other than that I would recommend the swim up suite. ”
