Well I have to say RDC did it again ! Everything was wonderful! I have been going to the RDC for many years and will continue for many more. I usually travel solo and this visit they went above and beyond. Upon arrival I was given a welcome back letter saying that all my ala carte restaurants were already booked... More

Our first trip there was in March of 2015, 5 minutes after we arrive my mother slips and falls (on wet ceramic tile) hitting her head severely. Ending up with a very bad head injury with permanent damage. I did not see her fall and did not realized how bad it was at the time. We went to the doctor... More

This was our 13th visit to the Royal Decameron Complex and possibly our last. The Royal Decameron has always been our fall-back destination at least once a year but changes in ownership and management have caused us to reconsider. The food was noticeably better than previous years, and the buildings/grounds maintenance seemed to be improved. However this was overshadowed by... More

This "complex" is that. It is very large, very confusing and the service is awful. The property is poorly maintained. The rooms were of the same quality as one of the lower quality, run of the mill, sausage chains in the USA. The beds were uncomfortable. The food was mediocre and there was a very small selection at each of... More

This was our 4th visit to the RD. It never disappoints. Here are a few observations and two suggestions. Observations 1) We love the size of the resort. Six low rise blocks of rooms, each with its own bar, and pool. Blocks are only 3-4 stories. So the grounds are expensive, and it had a big open feel to it.... More

The hotel is BIG and therefore you have to walk a lot to get anywhere ... beach, restaurants, shop, spa, etc. Dinner reservations are taken at 8 am for the "specialty restaurants" only, so if you don't get up early you have one option for dinner only. Linens are in good condition, rooms very clean. You have to pay extra... More

Hotel is a little old but very well kept rooms and grounds. Food is very good at buffets and excellent at a la carte restaurants. Italian and Brazilian not to be missed. Adult pool really nice and quiet.
