It was just amazing. We was greeted with champagne and excellent service. The rooms were lovely. We stayed in 1425 which had sun in the morning. The pools did get a little crowded although the pool next to L'Isla was lovely and quiet although we did spend most of our time on the beach, gentle sea breeze (paradise!) and the...

I visited Royale as part of a large and diverse group. The travel agent who arranged this location for us, picked it because of the numerous activity and dinning options. Whether going as a couple or part of a large group there is always somewhere to find action or complete privacy. This resort is nice because it's extremely wide. Some...

Unfortunately, there may not be enough room to list all the problems we had at the El Dorado Royale - a Spa Resort by Karisma just outside of Cancun. The worst part was the El Dorado was that the room categories we paid extra for were not what the hotel tried to put us in and on top of that,...

This is an adulte only resort. If you take the casita section: for 35 casita you have a pool and a concierge. They also have acces to the pool in the spa. Whats good with the el Dorado is that they have there one garden to grown there vegetable and they use them in the restaurant.

We had two weeks here with a british tour operator and it was the best two weeks we have had in years. This hotels location is prime, its not up in the hype of Cancun but in the more tranquil paradise feel of Riviera Maya. It provides an easy base for most attractions. The hotel was fantastic and the staff...

“Room location is important to us because of knee issues. Property is huge and spread-out so there is lots of walking but also lots of shuttles to hop on for transportation around the property. We request our room as close to La Isla pool as possible because we enjoy the swim-up bar and several restaurants surrounding it..”
