Beware grey line transport return ticket

We traveled during the "swine flu" drama & the hotel was only 40% occupied Thurs.(when we arrived on 05/28) & 50 % by Fri. the next day. Therefore they were upgrading most people (except people who paid for the most basic rooms- we spoke to a few other couples about this). While we were happy to be upgraded to a casitia, we paid for & wanted a swim-up. After much speaking to "another manager" they agreed. BUT were told it'd be the next morning. Story end- we lost thurs. when we arrived & all of Fri. as we were told to keep calling back before finally moving Fri. evening. That left us with sat. & sun. as our flight left 9am Mon. Which meant leaving the hotel at 5:45 Mon. am.

Great weekend

We were there for a wedding, which was lovely. H1N1 had emptied the place pretty severely, so not sure our experience was standard. Beautiful with lots of pools and places to hang out with the other wedding guests. We requested a room change due to musty room smell (it was true of most rooms, but ours more so) and loud air conditioner. We were told it would be quick, but 7 hours later had to cancel the move to get ready for the ceremony. Great food, but very slow service and that's by Mexico vacation standards. Had a lunch take over 2 hours despite being one of just 4 tables! Very friendly staff, surprisingly few spoke fluent English which was frustrating in an emergency.

El Dorado Royale

We went during the Swine Flu scare for a wedding with friends, hotel was at 25% occupancy and we basicly had the whole place to ourselves. Food was fantastic. everyone was very nice and polite with a "Hola" from all the staff that passed by you during the day and night. Does not get much better then this. Scott St.Louis, MO

Amazing!!!

We went to El Dorado Royale to attend a family wedding. It was amazing. The staff were friendly, the food was great and the grounds were spotless. I have never had such wonderful service. Everyone was nice and I felt they truly cared about our experience at their resort. The daily included activities were fun and the beach was beautiful. My husband and I have been married 12 years and have four children and this was like a second honeymoon! We will definately go back!!
