Having got married last October, we'd made use of Thomsons' "Honeyfund" - a way for our guests to contribute towards our honeymoon. We went to the travel agents with no real idea of where to go but told the rep how much we had and she suggested this resort, one she knew well and visited often. We booked it for...

We stayed at the El Dorado Royale the last two weeks of May 2013. We had a swim up room which was really nice, the room was clean and very comfortable. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful and very well kept, the staff are friendly and made us feel very welcome. There were a variety of restaurants to choose...

My wife and I stayed at El Dorado Royale for 2 weeks from 27th May for our Honeymoon. We had a fantastic time and met some great people. The resort met and exceeded all of our expectations and the staff / service could not have been better. The only downside to our stay was the hurricane and subsequent poor weather...

We chose this resort for our son's wedding because of the tout from beachbums.com. In fairness, a tropical depression hit Riviera Maya during our stay, but we were surprised that the resort seemed to have no Plan B when the weather is bad and cancelled many services, instead of ramping them up, when guests had nothing to do but wait...

My husband and I have been to Mexico 5 times (including getting married there ourselves) and this was our favorite resort of all our trips. That being said, it was also the most expensive place we've stay and expected everything to be excellent. We loved the cabanas, the swim up rooms, the awesome beach, and the food was amazing! The...

We stayed at this resort from 2/6/13 to 9/6/13 in a swim-up suite in block 1, The food is really good, we enjoyed Jojo's at lunch time, with Victor and Marco giving excellent service and D'italia for our evening meal. The only thing about this resort we didn't like, was some very loud American's, at various pools/bars. Sometimes it felt...

Due to horrible weather and extenuating circumstances at the resort such as rain/ flooding/ high surf, It is challenging to write a fair review of the grounds/ pools/ beach. Unfortunately when we visited during the first week of June, a tropical depression/ storm sat over us the entire time. The night we arrived it must have rained 10-15 inches and...
