    Exactly what we wanted!

    El Dorado Seaside Suites is literally the best! I was hesitant to travel out of country during a pandemic, but I was over the top impressed with how the staff handled the space and their own personal safety procedures. The occupancy was definitely limited and guests had plenty of room to be among other guests or with space in between. Myself, brother, and partner all felt extremely comfortable being at the resort. We booked honeymoon suites because.... why not?! The rooms were great and the additional perks were something I was definitely looking forward to! Massages, romantic dinners, and breakfast in bed. HECK YES PLEASE. The food was great! I was literally stuffed everyday because I didn’t want to miss out on a single thing! High marks for every restaurant. Literally, go try them ALL. We were at the resort in celebration of Mexico’s Independence Day and it was SO AWESOME. Everyone worked so hard to put together an extremely special evening. Dancing, singing, and shops & games was a lot of fun and it felt very special to be a part of this celebration. I felt honored to be welcomed into this space. Also, the El Dorado Mariachi band was amazing! (Special shout-out to the violinist that was visibly having the most fun and the beautiful voice of the young woman leading the pack!) The staff made this resort extra special and everyone was so attentive. - JUAN & GABO heading off events at the resort. Very nice and a fun pairing! They definitely kept things lively for the guests. - LORENZO & ALEXIS were excellent servers throughout our trip! - RAUL at the swim up bar in the pool kept. the. drinks. FLOWING! - MARICELA was our concierge and was so nice and helpful as we navigated our stay. - FRANCISCO with shuttle transportation made a point to be extremely helpful and kind! - KAREN was my masseuse and hand me walking away feeling beyond relaxed. Thank you for such an exceptional experience and for providing a safe and fun environment to rejuvenate! I would highly recommend this resort to EVERYONE! **PS. Is there a way to get to the pool other than going through Driftwood??

    Exceeded expectations!

    We just returned from a week long stay at the Seaside Suites for our anniversary and all I can say is WOW! It honestly exceeded our expectations! First, all of the food was delicious - although some restaurants were closed there were still plenty of options. Second, the entire staff was so helpful and welcoming! “Sexy Juan” at the pool bar kept things so fun with music trivia and Lauren our concierge was so helpful with our dinner reservations and questions. Thank you to the entire staff at Seaside for making our stay so enjoyable - we already can’t wait to come back!

    This was an amazing vacation. Everyone at the Eldorado Seaside were fabulous. They were very attentive to your needs and wants. The property was very well maintained. It was nice to have a normal week for once. Thank you for this trip....

    We Are So Ready For More!

    Ok, I'm really not a resort gal. Well obviously I have been at the wrong resorts because this changed my mind completely! My two requirements for our 20 year anniversary were an ocean view and a swim out room. NOT easy to get other places because most swim ups are 1st floor. Not here! Every room is a swim out. You cannot lose. What I did not expect was how fantastic the vast majority of the food would be or how incredible the staff would be! Honestly, I would like to name check but EVERYONE was great--Shout out to Lauren our personal concierge and Alix over at the beach BBQ and the entire room service staff that kept me in ice buckets for days (i use a ton of ice) SO great. SO great. It was so hard to leave Top to bottom fantastic. Brava!!
