Super beautiful resort complex, great experience

Pros: The grounds and landscaping, as well as the wide-open walkable beach.
Location: We were mostly interested in relaxing in the resort but we did go to nearby Bucerias and shop.
We had a wonderful trip in all ways.The resort is gorgeous, large and beautifully landscaped. The food was excellent and generous and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. We loved the beach and the waves! Our room was clean and comfortable. We stayed in Block 6 which was perfect for us because it has the adults-only quiet pool.

Beautiful hotel right on the beach

A group of 10 of us went and loved our experience at the Royal Decameron. Staff was helpful and friendly, the grounds are beautiful and our room clean and comfortable. The only complaint I would have is how we had to get up and be in line for our dinner reservations by 7:30 am. I'm on vacation, I don't want to be up early thinking about dinner so we only did that a couple of times but the restaurants we did eat at were good. We would go back and recommend to others.

Nice hotel close to the beach

Location: Really nice beaches a coupe km up the road, Islas marietas very close, boating, jungles, surfing, paddleboarding,
Lots of convenience, meals readily accessible with decent but nothing special food, lots of activities available at no extra cost, right along the beach with lots of recliner chairs and palapas for shade, five pools including a nice shallow kiddie pool, responsive staff, iguanas, no need to ever leave the resort if that's what you're in to

I will be back

Every service is perfect.....the only thing they got to do better is leave the pools open for a longer time ...my wife and I went here for our 25th anniversary on May of 2013 and we are going back in July of 2014.... But our kids are coming with us this time...my kids enjoy the pools the only thing they are not going to like is that the pools close at 7:00 pm

I enjoyed this hotel the whole week

Pros: Quiet
Cons: No free Internet, low quality drinks
I liked everything about this hotel. The location is superb and the beach very clean. Relatively close to the airport so you can enjoy the beach a little longer. Food was great since I love fresh fish but the drinks other than the beer are rather low quality so that's where the hotel lost me big time. The room is average yet spacy and comfortable. The staff is VERY friendly and the hotel is very well taken care of, impecable. Oh, and if you need cash, there's an ATM outside the property next to the pharmacy by the traffic light which will give you a much better rate than the hotel and it is very safe.

This hotel is an excellent value and has a wonderful staff.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants
Cons: No free Internet, Noisy
The hotel has such a wonderful staff. They are great! The grounds are gorgeous, the nightly entertainment is fun and it is nice to have so many pools and bars to choose from. The negatives for us were: rough sheets on the bed, no printer to go with the only two computers available on Block 4 (lack of computers to check on flights and print out boarding passes), having to make dinner reservations early in the morning and the noise from the theater and karaoke bar across the street from the hotel. The hotel is an excellent value for the money. It would be nice to see more than just Canadians there, though. The majority of the people there were Canadians. Even the t.v.s were showing hockey and curling. We would go back again.

Ok, but would not return.

Pros: all inclusive
Cons: Nothing close, No free Internet
This was a Family vacation. The trip was enjoyable due to my Family. The food was average, nothing special. The entertainment was great, but could not understand most of it. 90% of the entertainment was in Spanish. Also, very few people understood English at the front desk. We were suppose to have a bottom floor went to two rooms and still never received a bottom floor room. A crib was suppose to be in the room. But that took almost two hours to arrive and we arrived at 10 pm, so my child was screaming by the time the crib came due to being so tired. I went around the pool and cleaned up cups and trash so that my kids and other kids would not play with it or around it. We travel a lot and this place was not the greatest.

This hotel was very authentic and welcoming.

Cons: No free Internet
Everyone was very friendly and nice. We stayed in building 5. Too close to the theater. It was very loud until after 11 or so. However, the pool is the adult pool and was relatively quiet. For the best margaritas, see Rene at the pool in building 6. This was the most relaxing pool. The front buildings have very busy pools and alot of kids and noise. The beach was awesome! The water warm. The only downfall was the vendors doing the walk. Some of them, however, were entertaining. The food was good in the buffets and restaurants.
