    February 2020 - Amazing Holiday

    Me and the Mrs stayed at the El Dorado Seaside Suites for 10 nights in February 2020. The hotel is immaculate, the ground staff are constantly keeping the place spotless. Every person you meet or bump into has a smile on their face and it makes for such a nice experience. We stayed in one of the Swim-Up Junior Suites and it was perfect. After a day at the beach or off doing excursions, we came back and just relaxed in the pool, with its own swim-up bar. The rooms were a good size, with a huge Jacuzzi tub, although we didn't use that too much. Room service was really nice too, we arrived relatively late on our first night so just ordered room service and it arrived in less than half an hour and it was delicious. Mini Bar in the room was restocked every day too. The variety of restaurants on the resort are really good, the Mexican as you would expect was a real highlight. There are a couple of people who made our trip amazing. Marta (Martha) not sure but she worked on the beach and brought us drinks all day and was just the nicest person, so friendly. On the beach, there is a shack where you can organise excursions. Irvin (will add pictures) organised a night for me and the Mrs to visit Coco Bongo's in Playa Del Carmen and it was honestly the best night out we have ever had. The prices for the excursions booked through Irvin and his team are the same, if not cheaper than booking through the TUI Rep at the front of the hotel, and for literally the same experience. The coaches that take you to and from the hotel are shared between the TUI guests and the guests just booking directly with Irvin. We have booked to come to go back again in March 2020 (if the world is back to normal) and we really can't wait!

    Girls Weekend

    It was a great place to relax and enjoy some girl time with friend I hadn't seen in awhile. The accommodation were wonderful. The staff was very attentive. The pool and bar staff made the days fun. We always have a beach or pool chair of pool. We met a lot of guest so a very friendly atmosphere and good people at the resort . You could walk to most place for lunch or dinner but they did provide a golf cart shuttle service which was nice a the end of the night. Food was excellent. They had a Mexican night with a very large mariachi band. Very festive night. Room service was nice and quick.

    A perfect getaway for couples or friends

    I was extremely happy with my stay! We were in a swim-up pool suite facing the sea, and the room was gorgeous, nice and big, and well appointed. There were just two very minor drawbacks in terms of the room: 1) when you use the swim-out feature, there's no way to lock your sliding door behind you, so you just don't want to venture out too far or for too long (the swim-up bar is conveniently located for you to grab drinks and then head back to your patio area); 2) the bathroom door swings both inwards and outwards and there's no lock on it (but it can stay open on its own), so if you have friends over to your room, make sure you set up a rule that if the bathroom door is closed, someone is in there! As for all the other features, I couldn't have been happier. Transportation around the resort was really convenient - the carts run pretty frequently so our longest wait was about 5 minutes. The food was excellent - lots of different options in terms of food type and restaurant type. We went to buffets, sit-down restaurants, fancy restaurants, outdoor patios, pubs - everything was excellent, and the staff was all very attentive and friendly. If we asked for something they didn't have, they substituted it with something very close and didn't make us feel badly about asking! We had Italian, Mexican, Asian and other international foods - very happy with all of them. Definitely make reservations with your concierge at the beginning of your stay for any restaurants that require them - we almost didn't get into the restaurant we wanted to try most because we booked only a day in advance. The shows and entertainment were great - we went to a fire show and a circus show. The performers are very talented and it's good entertainment for all ages. Activities like poker, trivia and foam parties in the pool kept us occupied during the day when we weren't lounging around. The nightlife is also good, but I would say they could use a few more late-night options - most of the bars closed by 10pm. But the ones that were open later were good - one was a pub with things like live music, karaoke and a pool table, and the other was an outdoor bar with live music and a great dance floor. If I can go back someday, I will try the spa - I read good things about it, but didn't have a chance to go. Overall, I definitely recommend this resort. It's perfect for a couples' getaway or for a group of friends. Stay longer than a week, if you can!

    Absolutely perfect! Cannot wait to return

    From the time we got dropped off at the resort the staff was welcoming, friendly, and accommodating. The place was immaculate. Front desk check in process was seamless, and the bags were taken to the room for us. Shuttles around the property were often, and convenient. Got to know the drivers, and they always made sure everything was ok, food was good, and we have everything we needed. Food was amazing, room service was quick, and delicious and free. We stayed in the infinity side, but we enjoyed both sides for different reasons. Very relaxing, weather was perfect, absolutely zero complaints about the property except the beach. I'm assuming that's why they built the infinity section how they did, because the beach immediately in front of that section is very to my and uncomfortable to walk down. However a short shuttle will take you to the other side of the resort which had a decent beach. But we didn't care about that as we were fine with the pools but if you're going there for the soft sand and amazing beaches, you may have to travel off-site.
