Great trip, awesome food.

Please note- food and resort were exepctional. Do not stay here if you are looking for time in the beach. It is very small and rocky. I did not see one person all week in the ocean. Still worth it for me because the food and pools were great.

Good value with a few down sides

The Good: Overall, the resort was nice. All of the food was great. Loved having the swim up room. We never had a problem getting a chair at the beach or pools. The drinks were tasty and didn't seem watered down. Room service was awesome and quick! The housekeeping staff did a great job keeping up with our room cleaning. Check in and out were relatively easy and they went out of the way to make sure we were in a room close to our friends who were travelling with us but coming in the following day. The not-so-good: So much upselling. I go to an all inclusive so I don't have to pay more. Pools didn't provide floats so we had to purchase them for $36 each. You have to pay extra to have alcohol in the room (beside the mini-fridge which had beer, water and soda). You can drink all the wine you want at the bar but if you want to have some wine to drink in your room you had to pay extra. Cuts of meat at restaurants were extra. The resort has a rewards" program - which is basically a time-share. We were celebrating our birthdays. We received a note from the concierge that they wanted to give us a "gift" for celebrating with them. When we went to the concierge we found out that in order to get our birthday gift we had to attend a 1 hour tour and rewards club presentation at 830 am. That didn't seem like a gift. It would have been better received if they were upfront from the beginning that the gift was for our time, not to celebrate our birthdays. Beside the upselling/rewards club pushing, the only other complaint was that the restaurants aren't all open every day. Also, I'd skip the culinary theater Fuentes next time.

Would go again... and use you folks to book it!

The folks at CheapCaribbean were wonderful, I will definitely use them again to book a trip. The resort was wonderful - the grounds, pools and beaches were impeccable. The rooms were clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. I loved that the resort is so very eco conscience, they had plastic and aluminum recycling bins everywhere. That is huge for me. The staff was amazing and took excellent care of us. If you see any reviews complaining about the new natural reef that they are in the process of building... do not listen to them - the beach is beautiful, you can still swim and enjoy a beautiful view. This reef not only helps when the waves are high, it is providing much needed habitat for the local sea life. Loved the entire trip - thank you!!!

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

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.
