This is a wonderful vacation spot. My husband an I went September 14-19 for our honeymoon and I couldn't have asked for a better place to spend time along together. We spent $1300 american dollars for this all inclusive and that is with flights. Most of the reviews are correct in saying that the rooms are old school and aren't that great but who has time to spend in the room? The bed was comfortable and the air worked wonderfully so that's all I am concerned about when going on vacation. The food was amazing, We went to almost all of the restaurants and they did a wonderful job and totally met our expectations! The staff is amazing and courteous. The resort is very clean. At night there are literally pool boys out with bleach and a tooth brush scrubbing the pool chairs. The drinks were delicious. They served two kinds of beers dos akis and indio, I believe. We never had problems getting towels or water in our room and we did visit time shares there and yes they were beautiful but the food taste the same and basically the only thing they had to offer different were larger updated rooms but again I dont go on vacation to sit in my room. This is an extremely safe part of Mexico. We walked the streets for about a half of a day and the town is very cozy. I loved it so much I am planning a trip back next spring! Highly Recommended

Very nice clean resort. Pools always clean.
The only complaint was buffet food. Very little variety and not good at all
Reservation restaurants were good if you got up early enough to make reservations (730 am)
But short walk to market in bucaries and it is a lovely town
Heading back for our 7th visit!

My wife and I are heading back for our 7th visit on Saturday October the 10th and we cannot wait!
We have been lots of different places but keep coming back to the RDC when we just need a break and a simple holiday. It is like going to the cottage for the weekend and seeing all of your old friends and family!

Terrible terrible terrible. If you are thinking of going to this resort think again. Its cheap, cheap food, cheap drinks and cheap location. It is the Valu Village or good will store of vacations. Sad place.
Amazing Vacation, yet again!

This was my second time visiting the Royal Decameron. It was a last minute decision as our other travel plans fell through. Since its the off season we were able to book for $600 per person for 7 days with flights and airport transfers . We are so glad that we decided to go! The resort is very clean with incredibly nice staff. This was my girlfriends first visit there and she was very impressed with the resort as well. The food is excellent. The A la Carte reservation system is still a little daunting, but since it was a little slower, it was very easy to get into the restaurants of our choice. I do like the fact that they allow you to book 2 days at time. ( Last time you had to book daily). We ate at Jap jap ( wasnt great), Rodizio ( was good) and Picollo twice ( amazing everytime). The rooms are basic, but clean and comfortable. We had a room with a single king bed and always had a great night sleep. The air conditioner worked very well, thank god as its incredibly hot and humid in September.
As others have mentioned, bring your own Shampoo and Conditioner. Also insulated mugs are good to have as all the drinks are served in small plastic cups. The alcohol is all fairly low quality, so dont expect top shelf liquor.
