    Wonderful staff, amazing food, and beautiful accommodations!

    We had a wonderful stay at Eldorado Royale. It's my 3rd time there, and we will continue to go back. Jorge and Jonas, our concierges were amazing to work with and handled our every need with efficiency and kindness. The workout/crossfit/strength classes were great, and he was a wonderful and motivating teacher. The gym was never crowded, and it had a lot of equipment. We stayed in Casitas, which has beautiful rooms and your own poolside bar. The food was AMAZING. Our favorite was Rincon, and we ate breakfast at Cocotal everyday, which was delicious with great service. Fuentes provided a great interactive dining experience. We also loved all the activities available around the resort. We loved our stay and will definitely be back soon!

    Mexico at the end of March

    A very strange holiday. The hotel closed on the day that we left with the few remaining guests moving next door to its sister hotel. We have nothing but praise for the management and staff who tried to keep the hotel running.

    Looking forward to our next visit already!

    We stayed with our children in the family side of the property and were able to visit El Dorado side during stay. As always impeccable service and the gourmet options to enjoy adult only evenings and shows. We are looking forward to come back with our extended family and counting days till our return back here !
