I would not go back!

The room was impressive at first until every thing went wrong. The tv didn't work. The gate to the pool in my room broke off and almost fell on my foot. There was no hot water had to change rooms. I met many people there that had to change rooms. Not sure why they call it gourmet. While the food had a beautiful presentation it was fair at best. All the restaurants were extremely bright no romantic soothing atmosphere. The beach was Horrible! Very short and very rocky not much sand. Not good for jogging or strolling.

AMAZING!

This is not our first all inclusive. We have booked many times with Cheap Caribbean over the years. This however was our favorite! What we didn't know is that it is actually 3 resorts in 1. The beach at Sensimar which is the resort right next to it is amazing. The food was amazing which usually is normally not the case at most all inclusives. We loved the room, we were on the corner so our balcony was amazing and the balcony pool was bigger due to it being on the corner. The views were stunning. This resort is the cleanest and the staff was also amazing. I would highly recommend. Literally not one bad thing to say about it. Would return any day! Worth every penny.

Best Trip Ever

The resort completely exceed all expectations. Everything from the first greeting to the final good-bye was awesome. The trip from and to the airport is quite a ride but just sit back in paradise and enjoy the scenery.

Hotel Description

El Dorado Seaside Suites a Gourmet Inclusive Resort, by Karisma: Adult Only Luxury

El Dorado Seaside Suites by Karisma is expanding to a new adults-only world surrounded by crystal blue water with a taste of luxury modern styling, romantic settings and full relaxation in paradise--perfect for an intimate escape. The resort retains that calming hideaway feel, with its whitewashed buildings tucked amid swaying palm trees and facing a sugary-sand beach.

Just minutes away, there are endless opportunities to discover one of the largest reefs in the Riviera Maya, archeological destinations, Eco parks, natural cenotes, sandy beaches and Mayan culture. The resort is only about a 90-minute drive from Cancun International Airport, and only a short drive away from Playa del Carmen and Tulum.

The 192 luxurious suites are elegant and bright, which offers all comforts and amenities required for a pleasant and intimate haven. Suites feature an oversized balcony or terrace, king sized bed, Jacuzzi for two, smart TV, air conditioning, ceiling fan and an iPod docking station. Additional room comforts include marble bathrooms with double sinks, separate glass-enclosed shower, bathroom essentials, safety deposit box, iron and ironing board, coffee maker, telephone, and ample closet space. Enjoy a fully-stocked mini fridge, customize-able with beverage choices and savory snacks.

Lounge in your beach cabana along the pearly sands knowing you don't have to move until you are good and ready. And when the grumble of your belly starts to drown out the lapping of the waves, have no fear. Your friendly beach butler is soon to arrive bearing a picnic basket of goodies, including afternoon champagne. If poolside luxury is more your thing, stake your claim on one of the two-story, slat-roof cabanas and spend the afternoon gazing at the shimmering waters of the resort's three sparkling freshwater pools--each with its own swim-up bar.

Don't worry if the tequila sunrises keep you partying until dawn, just retreat to your plush bed to catch 40 winks. If you make it to bed earlier, you can relax beneath the stars on your patio or balcony hammock. Honeymooners, grab your loved one for a signature beachfront sky massage in a traditional Mayan palapa overlooking the silvery Caribbean Sea. El Dorado Seaside Suites also offers yoga classes, if that's more your style. Afterward, retreat back to the suite for a luxurious soak in your personal Jacuzzi.
