I travel to Cancun often for business and this is one of my favorite properties. The staff is very friendly. Service is amazing. The food is one of a kind and very tasty. The presentation of the food is amazing and the taste is even better. Great all inclusive.

We spent a lot of time choosing a resort and landed on El Dorado because of the reasonable price range and high reviews of the food! Our week at El Dorado was incredible. We were upgraded at no extra charge to the nicer Casitas section of the resort. The service and the food did not disappoint. We had everything from...

This review will focus more on logistics rather than a review itself because there are simply not enough positive things to say about this resort. We stayed from October 27 through November 3, 2012. The place is stunningly beautiful, very tropical and it seems advisable to use good discretion when reading negative reviews because the good far outweigh the bad....

This is a well manicured and nice resort overall. The food pretty good in all the restaurants but Kampai is amazing. The beach is great white silky sand and there are plenty of beach beds and loungers for all. The large bags in the ocean are unsightly but not a major problem and remember that they are there to protect...

First off, I'll just say to everyone reading these reviews that have never visited EDR, that anyone who rates this resort lower than four stars must be either ridiculously high maintenance or just a naturally negative person.
