This was my 4th time for 2 weeks or more each time, being at the Decameron and each time we come back the hotel has changed. This trip I would say was the worst visit to this hotel. The check in is at 3pm and they take you to the indoor disco and give you a number, then you have...

The set up of the estate is wonderful, a pool area for those that like activities and a seperate area for those who to read by the pool. The food there was great choice at lunch from a quick bit to a ore st down. The different speciality food areas was also great, some hidden on site and very pretty....

Where to begin? They tell you to be there at 3pm and they will not let you in earlier; Once you are there, you go into a conference room, check in at a desk and they WAIT to be called by name and to be told you will not have a room until 4:30pm. The restaurants stop taking reservations I...

This is an all-inclusive "Beach" Hotel. It's really nice. Food and drinks are included in your room price. It's very nice and very big. Lots of pools, bars, restaurants, etc. But, you cannot access the beach because of volcanic rocks, so don't expect to swim in the ocean here. Staff and facilities are good. Checkin was a bit weird and...

Dear Osote: We appreciate the time you took to leave us your comments about your recent visit to Decameron Salinitas. We are happy to know that you enjoyed our All Inclusive and the variety of fun options within the resort. The beach that surounds Decameron Salinitas is a coral reef reserve so you can find quite a few rocks, however,...

The shuttle to the hotel: You are 90 minutes by car from the airport to the hotel. A shared shuttle can be arranged by the hotel’s tour desk, for a reasonable $48 roundtrip/person. Unfortunately, you can’t count on the hotel’s travel services. We booked in advanced and reconfirmed by email, with the manager of the tour office of this hotel....

This is a good choice IF you are looking for an all inclusive, midlevel holiday. For this level the rooms are clean and service is "as expected". Food is of the "bulk" variety. The meeting facilities were very good with good attention to detail and very good audio visual.

Terrible customer service. I was on hold for hours over a simple addition to the room. I was bounced around and placed on hold for no reason. Finally the issue was resolved. Please have patience with these people. But i will not ever come back here again.

Food is terrible. No one provides information regarding time they have snack. You wait outside the hotel until 3pm until they let everyone in and everyone has to sit and wait in an event room. You get to your room until 4:30pm. No one told us that snacks ended at 5pm. A whole bunch of people started complaining and we...

We have stayed at the Decameron a fourth time. We find the staff friendly and the food good in the specialty restaurants that bring variations to the buffet menu. Since most people come here to enjoy the lovely Pacific wind and the great gardens especially as seen from the balconies in Blocs 3 and 4, it is downright irritating to...

Check in was not in the lobby. They check you in in the events space. Weird, but okay. Food isn't exactly all inclusive. If the restaurant buffet runs out, that's it until the next meal.
