Amazing Resort – nearly paradise! Just got back from 15 nights of bliss at the El Dorado Royale. Having read probably over a thousand tripadvisor reviews before choosing I had a pretty good idea about some of the potential issues that reviewers had mentioned, so I will add my take on those. Property – amazing grounds, very well maintained. Lovely...

The whole experience was a dream from start to finish. The room was excellent coupled with helpful and thoughtful staff. I had a swim up suite which was a great idea but I never used it as the pools were not crowed and of course they had swim up bars. We used room service after a day trip which was...

We have visited El Dorado Royale three times, now, and have never been disappointed. The staff are friendly and efficient, the food is the best of any resort we have visited in the Yucatan, and the property has the most room to spread out and enjoy a peaceful day if that is your thing. But still has plenty of group...

El Dorado Royale was recommended for our honeymoon location by our wedding planner, Rachel, and we are so happy that we chose this resort!

I got married here in October 2012. Of course the one day it rains was on my wedding day but the wedding staff was great! Luckily the weather was gorgeous for the actual ceremony but we got rained out for our reception on the beach. We ended up getting moved to a meeting hall which wasn't the prettiest but I...

El Dorado Royale is a beautiful resort and the staff is very friendly and helpful. My Daughter got married there and they made it a wonderful occasion. The wedding staff got everything exactly as we wanted it. Don't was your money on the fireworks though, as they are only 2" long sparklers that last 2 seconds.

We have stayed here 3 times so far but this year will be trying one of their other hotels simply to see if the experience is the same. It is an elegant resort a number of levels above most other premium hotels. The service is impeccable the food well presented and of a quality even above most top rated restaurants....

My wife and I spent two weeks at the El Dorado Royale last month. It's quite a long journey from our part of the UK to get there so anything less than two weeks seemed hardly worth it. Not for one moment did we tire of the place. We spent most days in the resort on the beach where there...

What a fantastic time me and my wife had at this location. When we pulled up to the venue it was night time and very dark but once it was daylight we both walked around and witnessed jaw dropping views. The sand was white and the sea was a beautiful turquoise colour. We found the food and the service absolutely...
