Confused on room types at El Dorado Maroma

Trying to figure out room types at EDM. Can someone tell me the difference between the Royal Swim-Up Suite versus the Swim-Up Jacuzzi?

Does it have to do with the location? Which one is better? Does the Royal have the outdoor shower and day bed also?

Another question...which location is best for a swim-out? Is it better to be at the end so you have more privacy...or is it better to be closer to the main pool area? Thanks!

Any room name beginning with "Royal" is for their timeshare/vacation club members only.

We love the swim ups at this resort and find the ones in the middle to be best.

Thanks caviargirl! I wish they explained that online a little better. I will stick with a jacuzzi suite. I like the infinity suites also. Have you stayed in them?

Our preference are the swim ups and this is one of the very few resorts where I really like these types of rooms.

We stayed in the one bedroom infinity pool suite two years ago, which was fabulous, and the other 2 times in the one bedroom garden suites. All of these are in the newer section near Generations.

Our friends were in an infinity pool suite last year and it was very nice. I would not want to be on the fourth floor or even the third personally and some of them in the very back do not have the best views.

Thanks for the help. I am going with the swim-out then. Those are heated also right?

I believe the main pool is now heated and that is where the swim ups are. Maybe someone else can answer as we generally only go to MX late April to Oct. when the water is warm enough for us to swim in the ocean and the pools are normally comfortable.

I have pics of the swim ups if that would help. PM me if you want them.

I will send you a message. That would be great! We would be going the first week of November, so I hope it would be warm enough.

Caylismom,

Did you settle on EDM? We loved their swim-outs too, and it is the only place I've ever been interested in one.

we are headed to EDm for trip #10 in january!. The swim ups are part of the main pool which is heated. All have the outdoor shower, day beds and chairs in the pool. As for location it depends what you are wanting...privacy?...close to the action ?...view ??? Building 3 and 4 are closest to beach but less private..building 5 and 6 in the middle of the swim ups and very close to pool and pool bar...building 7 and 8 more private..I have 9 albums of EDM on my FB page. if you areinterested in seeing them send me a PM. You will LOVE EDM
