Very Good!

Stayed here from Aug. 15-22. I highly recommend this resort. It is spotless. Staff are constantly working to keep up the pristine appearance. The food was excellent with a wide variety to choose from. Overall the staff were helpful, cheerful, and accommodating. For the price we paid, it was an excellent deal. Only legitimate complaint is, there are no pads, or padding on the beach/pool loungers. I would recommend that you bring a floaty or purchase one at or near the resort. It will be worth it! More>

Returned After 8 Years

We have been to RDC on 7 previous vacations, the last being eight years ago. Our son was married there 10 years ago so we had many great memories of the way the hotel used to look. Nice shades of beige and brown and it looked like you were in Mexico. Now it looks like a kindergarten classroom, color blind designer I guess. The appearance did not change our love for Decameron and the wonderful staff. We say many familiar faces that recognized us right away. The reservation system is stll a nightmare and we could not get a reservation for our 41st anniversary dinner at the Italian. We went to see if there were any cancellations and the Capitan ( Sergio) recognized us a seated us , what a wonderful gesture from a friend. The room was very clean and very RDC, basic comfort. The bars were very well organized and made guests form lines for service. Quite a anomaly in Mexico.The shows were outstanding and well attended to say the least. The only situation that disturbed us was on the beach. A group of Americans of Mexican decent thought it was cool to use a huge speaker and dominate the peace and quiet of the beach. We noticed these Americans of Mexican decent were very disrespectful of other guests from Mexico,Canada, USA and the rest of the world. I am sure others from the USA of Mexican decent were very disgusted as well. We will be back and enjoy RDC again, just not the color. Also the free WIFI is a nice upgrade, Barcelo wake up! More>

Very nice complex

The hotel is huge! However there were too many people, busy at all the buffets, hard to get place for dinner in 5 restaurants (you need to get up at 7.30 o'clock am to book one of the them - during holiday????). Dinners at the buffets are ok but plain- noting change during our week stay. Even when we paid for all inclusive hotel we needed to pay for save, no fridge in the room The staff at the hotel- perfect. Everybody was smiling, happy to help you- really very nice people. Beach very nice and clean More>

Great people, great place

One of the best places to go for vacation. Have been in more than 30 destinations in Caribbean but this place with service, people, food stands on the top. Yes, buildings are not brand new but everyone there will go a mile to make you happy and this is the best deal for your buck. Thanks again for your hard work and great service. See u soon again.

Going to keep this short and sweet! First impression was "oh my, what did we book" Turns out, was one of our favourite vacays! Room was clean, very simple. No coffee maker etc. But bed was comfy. Great view off balcony. Quiet aside from the disco, but our air conditioner drowned out noise. Close to adult pool, close to bar, close to breakfast buffet. Honestly, no complaints! Thought Riu Jalisco was great but prefer this place. It's colourful and kinda tacky but great service! A la cartes were good. I love food and always found lots to eat! Booze was good, lots of drinking water available. Beach was clean, typical plastic chairs. All in all, great trip. Especially considering we only paid $2100 for both of us, direct flight out of Winnipeg, MB More>
