Just returned from the el dorado royale. The resort is a large resort with many different categories of rooms. All rooms have jacuzzi tubs, mini bar stocked daily with beer, pop and water. The casita suites are amazing with outdoor shower! And each group of casita suites has its own pool area with outdoor hot tub and swim up bar....

We stayed at this resort, hoping to have a relaxing and romantic vacation as a couple for a week in January 2013. We chose this resort because of its 5 star rating (which made it a higher price), previously good reviews, and "gourmet inclusive" philosophy - assuming that these things would ensure a great experience. What we ended up getting...

Food was good; portions were appropriately sized; grounds were beautiful. The size of the resort made it seem like there were several small resorts. It was a bit of a hassle that you couldn't reserve at restaurants without going through a conceirge (who is really a salesman for their Time Share Vacation Club). Would I go back? Maybe. Given the...

This was our second time to stay at El Dorado Royale. Both times we were treated like royalty. We used our exchange with RCI to stay here. Our check-in was smooth and painless. Because we arrived before check-in time our room was not available but they took our bags and said we had free reign of the complex and to...

Our friends stayed at Azul Beach (sister resort, family friendly) the year prior to our stay and they had a wonderful time. We figured that staying at the adults only hotel would make for an even better stay. We read great reviews of El Dorado and even heard great things from friends and acquaintances. So why not, right? Wow! Were...

We were recommended this hotel by a work colleague as being a great hotel for all inclusive gourmet food and amazing value for money. So we booked and took our two week honeymoon here in January this year. It lived up to its reputation and delivered oh so much more. From beginning to end we were amazed by the attention...

We stayed here with friends, got a 3rd floor room with balcony, not ocean view, but who cares, we never spend any time in our rooms anyway. The property is gorgeous, well maintained, very spread out, so lots of walking, but very fun and friendly shuttle drivers if you want a ride. The room was very nice, big bathroom with...

My wife and I took a week's vacation at El Dorado Royale at the end of February. Karoline from Beach Bum Vacation recommended this resort for us because she knew that we were food lovers, and it did not disappoint.
