Great place for the price
This is very clean resort. Rooms are good and staff is very friendly. We were there about four years ago and then again this year. My one request would be to change your menu in the a la carte restaurant. The main reason I am writing this report is to ask the manager to please go back to using straws. I do not want to drink out of a glass that has not been put through a dishwasher. The blender drinks are impossible to drink without a straw so most get dumped about half way through the glass. Please find another way to recycle and give us straws.
Overall great experience
To preface this review, I have been to Cabo San Lucas a number of times and this was my first time in San Jose del Cabo. Also, I am single and travel with friends (including my sister, who was with me this trip). Also of note, travel was down a lot in this time due to the Covid-19 outbreak which had ramped up just before we left for our vacation. Also it is very high surf most of the time (depends on the time of year) but we had red flags the entire time so could not swim in the ocean. More about the resort: Extremely clean - there were people cleaning and tidying all the time which was excellent. The place is small which I think helps them keep it especially pristine. The food was good, although we would have liked to see more guacamole! Just a personal thing :) Room cleaning was a little unpredictable in terms of timing and towel replacement. I'm sure we could have called the front desk but it wasn't such a huge deal. The staff was amazing of course - especially our little buddy Angel at the upper pool bar. That was definitely the place to be, day and evening. Wifi was not great - you really had to be in the lobby to get perfect reception. The only thing about being in San Jose is that the town is extremely quiet. If you want to party you have to take transportation for 30-40 minutes into Cabo San Lucas to hit the bars there. We did go to one place in town called Mixology which was a cool spot with a DJ - I would highly recommend it.
My Third Visit
I was at the Royal Decamaron from 5-19 Mar. It was my first visit in 2 years. There were changes both good and not so good since I last visited. One was the Wi-Fi and safe were now free. The Lobby bar was now open from 1100-2300 now. I got room 238, even though I waited an extra hour to get on on the 3rd floor. I recommend that anyone with mobility issues stay off the 2nd floor as there is no access to the elevators. My room was fine, and housekeeping was very good, cleaning my room every day and always restocking my water. The resort itself hasn't changed too much. It was never an issue getting a lounger by the pool in part because the resort was not that full. At Breakfast service was hit and miss. The servers kept rotating and never got to now their customers, plus there was a lot of shyness, whether is was language or newness I couldn't tell. Once they got to know me things got better. I ate lunch at Luna every day as it was within view of my lounger. In the past they used to have 2 menus that they changed every few days. On the whole the food was good, but it is a short menu and after 2 weeks it gets a bit boring. I did laugh, because no 2 dishes were the same, for example I had Pork Kabobs 3 times, all served a different way. The supper buffet was okay but seem to go down the second week when there were a lot fewer people at the resort. Even though they have a different theme every day, the selection of hot items tended to be few and hit or miss. The salads were always fresh and usually well stocked, but declined in my second week. The Luna al a carte was also hit or miss, some dishes were really good others no so much. One example was I had mushroom bruschetta that was great, but the main course was a grilled pork chop that was so overcooked it was tough to eat. I had to admit the strawberry shortcake afterward was awesome. The service at the al a carte was also hit and miss. The best service was from Gloria and Ricardo who also knew me from lunch. Speaking of service, it was still pretty awesome which made my stay all that much better. I never got my housekeepers name, but she always said Hola everytime I passed by her. I apologize for any one I miss. At breakfast ( I do know how hard they work) Filipe, Migdaly, Ruth, Victoria, and Perla. Lunch; Noemi, Gloria, Ricardo, and Oswaldo. Jesus at the Pool bar made the best Ceasars, and Oscar at the Lobby bar was a master bartender. It wasn't my best holiday, but no where near my worst. I think a lot had to do with all the travel restrictions. I don't know when I will be able to travel again, but I will come back to Royal Decamaron in San Jose del Cabo.
Great quiet little gem
We were greeted with a welcome drink when we arrived! This is a smaller resort and much quieter than resorts we've visited in the past. Our first morning at 8am, they were mowing the lawn. It didn't affect /bother my family, but it might others. From my room, i could hear people in above rooms stomping around. Bathrooms are small and i wouldn't say they are too nice. The shower has the rainshower in it, but the pressure was light. Rooms are smaller, like a standard hotel room. For us, not a huge deal as we're here to go outside, but there wasn't really anywhere to unpack and keep our clothes. Our balcony faced the area where they had the nightly entertainment. Would probably be noisy for anyone who was trying to go to sleep before 10pm. For us, it wasn't an issue. The nightly shows were great. I loved that it was outdoors, and they would light the big fire pit. Was cozy! We enjoyed the food at the buffet. The other restaurant which was open from 11-5 by the beach was good too. You sat down and ordered from the menu and they had good selections and tasty food. My fav were the nachos! That restaurant also opened at night for reservations. Food was good there also. Smaller resort, was very quiet. There were a few young people we overheard bashing the hotel for being lame because it kind of shuts down early (11pm). If you are young and want to party I suggest staying at the neighbouring hotel or right in Cabo! It's kind of convoluted to try and get from the ground level up to the lobby. Not just an open set of stairs, you have to find your way through elevators. As this was a recently converted adult only resort, there wasn't a whole lot that was for kids. No kids club, park or kids pool, except for a small shallow coordined off circle pool. Our kids were old enough to not care about those things but if you are a family with smaller children, you might care! Pool music began right at 9am. But it wasn't crazy club music. Relaxing music, and that's what played all day. I enjoyed not having loud beating music while I relaxed poolside. The resort is located right across the street from lots of shopping and restaurants which was nice. And a Starbucks!! Paid $50 usd for safe and Wi-Fi for the week. If you like a smaller resort, this is it. They have 153 rooms. Our first three days here, they were at 40% capacity. It was very quiet. Even once they were fuller, you didn't have to fight for a chair at the pool. Daytime pool entertainment was lacking, but it's not like they didn't try. You need people in order to entertain them. Our maid never refilled our coffee supplies in our room which sucked as I was always up before my family and was unable to have a coffee on the patio. I was told by the front desk that coffee is a welcome gift and that you only get it the first day. What!? They don't have room service. One suggestion I have is to keep the main bar by where the nightly show takes place open later. It's such a nice atmosphere and sucks to have to move up to the lobby bar which is only open til 11, which then the disco opens and nobody wants to go sit in there. There are three pools at this resort, however one is reserved for club guests only, another is cold (not heated) and so nobody steps foot in it. So the third pool ends up being the main pool where everyone is and it can get a bit crowded. There's also a smaller pool connected to the main one for little kids with a tacky fence around it. No straws. Bring your own straw. We did find the main bar had some hidden away, but they do not use straws at this resort and I cannot drink my slushie drinks without one! Overall, it was a good resort. My kids had a good time, they enjoyed the pool and the food. It was relaxing for us and we appreciated being at a small resort where everything was closely accessible.
Spring Break 2020
This resort is small for an all-inclusive but the grounds are beautiful. There are minimal guests under the age of 45, so if you're looking for a party this is not it. The staff was very helpful, kind & overall what made our stay. There is only one buffet & the menu varies daily which is nice, with some vegetarian/vegan options. The snack bar at the restaurant has the same menu daily & it would be nice to have more options or different options throughout the week. There is no swimming in the ocean but the beach and lounge chairs are well kept and very nice. It would be helpful if there would be allergen labels on the food at the buffet. It's rather peaceful and calm at the resort and not a lot of guests. Lastly, it was a 30 minute drive from cabo san lucas so we commuted daily by bus or uber, but it's only 15 minutes from the airport.
