    Coronacation 2020- Exotic Travel

    Decided to take a trip to our FAVORITE RESORT in Cancun, once travel bans were lifted! We stayed in the Presidential Villa-Tulum for the first time, as we usually stay in the Casitas! WOW. What an incredible experience, with top-notch service and care from our two butlers, Alondra and Yalma. Each of these spectacular women made our stay unforgettable. Their attention to detail and attentive nature made our stay comfortable and beyond expectation. 100% recommend exotic travel and EDR/EDCR, for the opportunity to meet such incredible people such as Yalma and Alondra.

    Outstanding Experience

    The staff at El Dorado Royale and Casitas really take the time to make sure guests are enjoying their time. This was our 7th trip, and we will definitely return. Both our concierge Alejandro and Emiliano made sure to ask us daily if we needed anything and thanked us for visiting. Our butlers Ivan and Berenice made sure to check in with us many times a day. The staff at restaurants were very friendly. The shuttle drivers stopped to offer us rides whenever they went past us- Julien even sang to us (great singing voice!). The pool bartender Jonathan learned what my husband's favorite drink was and offered that every time. Finally, this experience had a personal touch that we REALLY appreciated- Hugo did Zumba classes with us many times after we asked him if the classes were still being offered. This staff at this resort makes sure that guests feel like family and have an outstanding experience.

    Was there 2nd week of July place was great only reason not getting a 5 star rating was because they lied to us .. we talked to the resort day before we arrived they assured us Royale was 100% open we get there and it’s 100% closed.. they upgraded us to casitas and made it sound so great then they stick us up on the 2nd floor .. we payed for a bottom swim up which we did not get!! I understand things are diff with what’s going on but they should of been up front with us so we knew what was going on, instead of lying about it to make sure people don’t cancel! If they had been upfront it would have all been good!! On a better not we still had a great time and definitely would return!! Also Paloma who was our maid was fantastic! And Edgar down at the only beach bar that was open at night was best bartender on that property!! Very attentive very good making drinks and making sure we were taking care of!! Felix and the pool bar building 32 was awesome as well!!
