Excellent holiday

Had a great time at the Royal Decameron. The hotel is mainly used by mexican people, a few canadians and Americans and a few English. Never an issue getting a sunbed and the location right on the beach was excellent. Food was great, always something for everyones tastes. We enjoyed all of the buffet restaurants and the Brazilian al a carte best. The staff were amazing, very helpful and hard working. The wildlife is amazing at the hotel, iguanas, all kinds of birds, butterflies, pelicans etc Wifi wasn't great but you don't go on holiday to spend all the time on your phone or computer. The nighttime entertainment was also very good. All in all a very good holiday

Nice Place to Stay!

Excellent service, beautiful beach and the food at the resort was fantastic! Resort is older, but is very clean and well cared for. View from the ocean view room in Block 1 is fabulous, recommend second and third floor rooms for the best views.

Returning again

We have been going to the rdc since 2008 .....most years twice once in the fall and again in the spring. We have looked at other resorts and have stayed at condos but alway found the rdc the best value for us.The resort itself is always clean the rooms comfy but basic. If you cant find something to eat in all the resturants you must be very picky . The staff is unreal the location is great . You have so much to chose from just steps from the resort . See you november 2 .....cant wait to have breakfast at bock 5 than maybe a walk to Bucerias

First and last time

Check in process is obsolete since they don't use computers you make a line for check in then another one to get bracelets for the all inclusive. Hotel in general is outdated including rooms. Bed sheets had hair probably didn't change them. they still use keys to open the room. rooms are noisy you can hear everything. bathroom was very outdated as well. One morning we were awaken by the guy mowing the lawn at 7 am. One of the restaurants closed like 10 to 15 minutes before the hour stated on the schedule. most of the staff is nice with the exception of 3 which we had an interaction with them and were kind of rude. If you want to use the safe in the room you have to pay extra to use it. No WiFi in the rooms. Food not good at all. They have 5 restaurants a la carte but you cant make a reservation by phone, you have to get up early and make a line and make one which I found ridiculous.We had a party of 14 people we asked a waiter to put a table together for all of us and said that it wasn't allowed, minutes later another waiter put tables together for a big group like us. And if you are in line waiting for your turn and they have to close they just stop serving even if there is more people in line. Another incident happened when trying to get transportation from the airport to the hotel, I saw the guy that drives the shuttle from the hotel I asked him if he could take us which he said if you prepaid already yes. I asked them if we could pay at the hotel once we were there he just said call the hotel. Basically there is a lack of customer service in some areas and with some of the staff. NOT GOING BACK TO THIS HOTEL.

People were kind, food was average and varied, and not allowed outside of restaurants. That was a nuisance, our son had an allergic reaction to a bug bite and I wanted him to rest, but had to drag him out as they wouldn't let us take food to him. Also, limited wifi. Pools were lovely, daily activities and shows were fun! The rooms contained no frills. We had a few some had hand towels and some did not. The ocean was calm in the mornings. While we were there a few kids got stung by jellyfish. Be careful. Take toys for kids. There is a department store close by that sold everything from food to stoves. The town was within a 20 minute walk with kids or a 50 peso ride by taxi. A must see. We also visited Puerto Vallarta. It is definitely A place to visit. Overall, people were friendly and gracious. Don't forget to bargain!
