We have just returned from a week in this resort. We were there for our honeymoon. The resort was gorgeous and very well kept. Rooms were lovely and spacious and kept very clean. Maids came in twice daily and were always very friendly. There was a good variety of restaurants, we only tried a few but of which they were...

My husband and I spent two weeks here for our belated honeymoon. The whole experience at El Dorado was amazing. But I must admit we both enjoyed doing literally nothing but relax and be pampered. Sea view, swim up pool which had a lazy river flowing to the cocktail bar. A hammock on the balcony. We were surprisingly offered a...

Went here as part of a wedding. Paid for a swim up suite, was great to have access to swim up to the main pool. When we arrived our mini-bar was not stocked, room was run down and TV was not working. Took over 2 1/2 hours for someone to come up and bring water for the mini-bar. Swim up...

My wife and I were part of a wedding party from July 11th to July 15th 2013. The wedding party was just over 100 people, and we were excited to join our friends and family to celebrate the beginning of two people starting their lives together and their future. Based on our "collective feedback" during and after our stay here...

We booked this resort through Costco. We inquired with the Costco agent on recommendations after reading poor reviews of other Yucatan resorts. It is an adult only resort with GI (gourmet all inclusive). It is about 30 minutes south of Cancun. The package included transfer to the resort. I can highly recommend this resort. The grounds were well taken care...

I went there for my honeymoon and it was amazing. The food was unbelievable. I cant wait go back. It was very relaxing and we tried every restaurant there. The staff was willing to do anything. My husband and I walked around the resort every morning after breakfast. It's a 5k all the way around

We had the most amazing time at this resort! From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. One of the highlights was the delicious food we were able to enjoy at anytime. Found Kampi and D'Italia to again be our favorites and visited both twice. We found lunch at El Rincon to be very good, and much more...

“We stayed in a swim up room this time, but with as little time as we spend in our room the lower priced rooms are probably a better value.”

“Don't bother with the Royal Suite upgrade - the room is little different than the Luxury Suite and the only differences we saw were a) a private butler service (which was very good) and b) a line up of four 750's of your choice of spirits and two bottles of wine ... the latter wasn't really worth paying for unless you plan to drink like a fish in your suite vs at one of the dozen all-inclusive bars on property.”
