Before I even arrived I was told certain things were included that were not! This place is the UPSELL king! Before booking rooms here I was told I can have my 50th birthday dinner on the beach at no extra charge which I found out after booking 4 rooms that I was told wrong. I arrange in advance so I...

My wife and I just returned from a week at El Dorado Royale. Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay. Our room was as expected, and the service at the resort was top notch. Ruth, our concierge was friendly and accommodating, and while she recommended that we attend the time share presentation, she did not force the issue when we...

The resort was beautiful. Everything was clean and kept neat. Service to the rooms was over the top! The restaurants were superb. The staff in all areas were so friendly, you couldn't help but smile and say "Hola" with every staff you met. We can't wait to come back!

Our room attendant was Martha and we really appreciated all of her...

We have just returned from a 10 day holiday at this hotel. Its an amazing hotel, spotlessly clean, the staff are so friendly and hardworking. Cannot fault it at all. Cocktails are the best I have had in an all inclusive and the food is simply delicious. Would definitely return.

Lovely spot. Muriel the yoga instructor was excellent. Sergio the entertainment rep was perfect for his job. Food and service - simply wonderful. A little busy, probably because of the Easter week. We had to reserve lounge chairs by the pool early in the morning - our only headache.

Torn between El Dorado Royale and another destination, your wait is over! Just do it, sign up for EL Dorado. It's worth every penny, dime, cent, farthing, whatever you country's currency. This is the second year we've been there after feeling like we didn't get enough the first time around. Guess what, I'd go there again and again, and again....

“If you're looking for quiet evenings, don't stay in the building in the central part of the resort. We loved being central to everything and didn't mind the evening noise and the terrible late night Karaoke :) ”

“If you don't want a swim up room (not worth paying for in my opinion) don't get a room in a block of swim up rooms - other guests can be out there very late and be very loud!”
