Disappointed

For the price you pay it is really just average. We came to El Dorado on our honeymoon nine years and wanted to return because we had such fond memories. We came back after nine years and were disappointed, especially if you are beach lovers like we are. Best parts: The service is great. The staff do all they can to make your experience comfortable. The rooms are fine- we stayed in the cheapest room, because we don't like to be in our room all that much. Plenty of dining options. Adults only- we left a child behind at mimi's and papa's. Worst parts: The servers definitely know who tips and who doesn't- so when it says tips included in the description just know that your service will be downgraded because you take this literally. We always tipped, but feel as if it should be taken out of the description because it's clearly an expectation from the staff. The alcohol is bare minimum and there is no consistency in how much they put in the mix drinks- sometimes its potent and other times its like drinking a juice box. THE BEACH- was a total disappointment. Now I know we are talking from a point of privilege here...but we remember white sandy beaches and clear water and what we came back to were rocks and seaweed and a bunch of concrete barriers in the water barring the beautiful view of the Caribbean. Again you cannot control nature- but just something to know ahead of time. The food is really average- nothing really special. OH unless you want to pay extra for steak or upgrade your wine selection- which again is irritating when you pay for an all inclusive.

Awesome Trip

This resort was wonderful and massivel! The grounds are impeccable and the service was mostly good. There are tons of restaraunts and bar options. The service however was not impeccable and the food was tasty but super small portions. The pools are very nice with everal different options. We upgraded to a swim out room which i would highly suggest. Do be aware that everyone will try to upgrade you while you are there. If we go back we will stay on the Casitas side. Seems to be nicer and have better service. The beach front was just ok. Lots of seaweed and not swimmable. The Bali beds and hammocks are all over and amazing! I would definitely go back. This was an awesome value and we had a great experience!

Resort was in excellent shape. They appear to work very hard keeping the grounds in order. Upgraded to beachfront room and I highly recommend this. You get a cabana and pool with swim up bar shared with about 10 other rooms. Also, you are able to make dinner reservations at all restaurants and avoid the wait. Beach in our area was ok. Rocky as expected. Some nicer stretches in other sections of the resort. View was beautiful. Shout out to Ivan and Lebert our bartenders who were outstanding. Made sure we had what we wanted, when we wanted. Room service was nice, but took about an hour. Not a problem if you plan for it. Morning coffee and wake up calls were spot on time. Food quality overall was very good. Italian was our favorite. I recommend this resort based on our personal experience. It is adult only and is not a party resort. Laid back without the wildness. Wish I were there right now!

What's to Love

The resorts boasts a 76,000 sq ft state-of-the-art hydroponic greenhouse so most of the dishes are created with fresh, local and sustainable products.

 

What We'd Change

The grounds of this resort are beautiful but expansive, so pack your comfy shoes or sneakers (you'll need 'em on the tennis court, anyway) for your strolls around this gorgeous property.

 

Why You Should Go

Riviera Maya is one of the most beautiful spots in Cancun - white sands, bright blue water and lots of sunshine.

Hotel Description

El Dorado Royale a Gourmet Inclusive Resort, by Karisma: All-Inclusive Heaven

Ignite a new flame or rekindle your romance along the sugary shores of Playa del Carmen at El Dorado Royale, a Gourmet Inclusive Resort by Karisma. Voted one of Conde Nast Traveler Readers' "Top 100 Hotels in the World," this adult-only retreat offers a gourmet all-inclusive plan that pampers your palate while you swim in AAA Four Diamond luxury.

Stroll hand in hand with your sweetheart along the resort's secluded sands or get the wedding party together for a swim in the resort's natural, saltwater pool. Looking to achieve the perfect bronze for your wedding? Surrender to the sizzling Mexican sun on a lounger or slide into one of the resort's 12 freshwater pools and make your way to a swim-up bar for a cocktail... and since there are 11 in-pool bars, chances are you won't have to float very far.

Eight gourmet restaurants and snack bars tempt your taste buds with selections like the lobster lasagna from five-star D'Italia, fondue with a view from La Fondue and the Pacific Rim cuisine of Kampai. For a unique show with your meal, head to Fuentes-Culinary Theatre, where flat-screens give guests an inside view of the work of Michelin-trained chefs. When twilight beckons, grab your honeymoon-heartthrob and nestle into a swinging chair with a drink for live music at Las Guacamayas, or sip premium martinis at the stylish Martini Bar. If you're looking for more, there's always a 20-minute cab ride to the heart of Cancun's nightlife.

Before tying the knot at the resort's stunning, beachfront wedding chapel, do away with any pre-vow jitters with a body scrub and a beachfront sky massage in a palapa overlooking the Caribbean. While you're there, take a lesson from the pros, who'll teach you how to give your spouse-to-be a massage when you get back to your Infinity Pool Swim-up Casita Suite. The suite has a private plunge pool that leads to the lazy river, a jetted tub and exclusive perks; we wouldn't blame you if you never left your room. But when you do, be assured paradise is waiting.
