Our amazing travel agent, Rachael @ beach bum vacations hooked us up with some real amazing amenities which really made the week even more memorable! Honestly can't say enough good things about her and the resort. We look forward...

We stayed here for 5 nights as part of a wedding celebration (group of about 25 people in total). We spent another two nights in a nearby and less expensive resort, and it's impossible not to compare El Dorado with the "other," so please forgive me. The best way to summarize our stay at El Dorado is "inconsistent," as my...

Following our first trip to Mexico and our stay at the Eldorado Royale I have only praise and thanks for all the staff from Sylvia the housekeeper to Andrew the general manager who I think had a part to play in a very special anniversary evening. The place is out of this world 7 top class restaurants all serving first...

The people, food, drinks and atmosphere were great. A great place to relax but I would like a few more activities available in the local area. The snorkelling at xal-ha was great. You cannot walk anywhere from the resort which is a draw back.

The grounds were perfectly manicured, people were as friendly and helpful as could be, and the food was even better! 7 delicious, 5-star gourmet restaurants to choose from between the Villas and...

This resort was on of the most luxuries resorts that I have stayed on. It was a resort chosen by our close friends who were getting married. The grounds of the resort are beautiful, lots of fountains and rivers throughout the resort. The resort itself is huge, there are golf carts which take you everywhere. It runs along the beach...

I will start by exclaiming that if you stay at the El Dorado Royale you will definitely not be disappointed but just a few little tiny points prevent me from giving it a 5 star rating. Read, but do not take the really bad reviews as common, I am sure that there will always be a possibility of a bad...

This was our second time to go to this resort. The property is absolutely gorgeous! The customer service is second to none. The staff is so very gracious and nice, always pleasant.
