Absolutely beautiful grounds! My wife and I really appreciated the eco-friendly and green approach to everything this resort did. Just be sure to take a moment and READ what you should do if you want new, clean towels. Also READ when and where all the activities are daily. We missed out on the free bicycle tour of the grounds, greenhouse,...

The resort is fantastic! I was only there for a day-really fast getaway. But I'm looking forward to going back. The food is excellent. The basic room is luxurious. The staff is incredibly friendly and efficient. The entertainment is good & plentiful. And even in the middle of a tropical storm, it's a great place for a vacation.

I learned that the tough time about reading these reviews is you don't really know where the reviewer is coming from nor do you really know how complete and fair the review is. So I'll start my review off a bit differently. My wife and I are about as common people as you'll find in the midwest U.S. We are...

My wife and I went here on our honeymoon from June 4-14th, I've read a lot of the reviews before we went here and now experiencing the resort for myself, I wonder what the bad reviews are talking about.

Having got married last October, we'd made use of Thomsons' "Honeyfund" - a way for our guests to contribute towards our honeymoon. We went to the travel agents with no real idea of where to go but told the rep how much we had and she suggested this resort, one she knew well and visited often. We booked it for...

We stayed at the El Dorado Royale the last two weeks of May 2013. We had a swim up room which was really nice, the room was clean and very comfortable.
