Excellent resort. Food quality varies.

We very much enjoyed our stay at this resort. This is our second visit and can report that the staff continue to be excellent. Don't go to this resort if you're looking for a high rise condo experience with easy access to Starbucks. This resort consists of six low-rise residences joined by various swimming pools with a distinct laid-back Mexican feel. All of that with a variety of evening entertainment that we enjoyed made for a great week. Our only criticism is the food. In general it's good, but some dishes were below standard. The resort seems to want to please everyone with almost too many choices. And in trying to achieve this, the quality of some dishes is not satisfactory. Also, having to line up at 6.30am to get seats at their specialty restaurants is... crazy! More>

food was very poor, walls are paper thin and was woken up by the people in the next room either fighting or having sex, staff was friendly but house keeping was to be desired.. at 51 I'm pretty sure we were the youngest couple there. It was to say the least a geriatric resort More>

If you want to get out of bed early on vacation to make your dinner reservations at the a-la-carte restaurants - this is the place for you. If you want to sit around and read books all day - this is the place for you. If you want to go to bed early and the place is dead quite - this is the place for you. The Resort is clean and plenty of food choices at the buffets - staff is excellent - housekeeping did an excellent job - but if you're looking for a social vacation I would say this isn't that! We are in our 40s - and for sure we were some of the youngest vacationers (aside from an entire family with grandparents - kids - grandkids) Canadians inhabit the majority of the resort - No time share hagglers for sure as there are none on this resort. Abel (block 6 bar) - Reuben - Andreas - (Reagae Bar) and can't forget I forget the early bartenders name at the Block 6 bar - made us velvet bananas every morning - wonderful smile every day for us!

Very Enjoyable Stay

We have just returned from an enjoyable two week stay at the Decameron in Bucerias. We had a nice room on the ground floor as I have mobility issues. We had a little private patio to sit on as well. The room was always kept clean. Wi Fi was close and worked well except for one day. The buffets were good and there was always something to suit our tastes. We also ate at all of the a la cartes and very much enjoyed the food. The fellows particularly enjoyed the Brazilian restaurant where they ate so much meat, it was amazing! I actually celebrated my birthday at the Italian restaurant and the wait staff sang Happy Birthday to me. The wine served at the restaurants, however, is awful. My husband had a great time on a snorkeling tour and on the beach where he boogey boarded and just spent time in the ocean. We spent many hours under a palapa on the beach just reading and people watching. We walked into Bucerias town several times and visited the shops on the way and the market. Also attended the Blessing of the Fleet, and an accompanying parade with dancers and music, etc. I find the Mexican people very friendly for the most part and didn't feel unsafe at all in this town. We also hired a van and spent a few hours in Sayulita, a surfing town up the coast. We only went to the theatre one evening, but totally enjoyed it. It's sort of noisy a lot of the time, but that is part of this kind of resort. All in all a relaxing break from winter. I would come again. More>

Basic Resort w/great beach

My husband and I just returned from our 5-day trip to Bucerias. The resort met our expectations; quick beach get-a-way. We stayed is room 3409 - the room is basic, but had a great view and very clean. It is adjacent to the evening activities and can be a bit noisy until about 11. In the morning it's also near all the truck activity.... But the view makes up for it. The staff, like everyone states, are very friendly and helpful. The buffets are decent. Plenty to choose from. I wished they had more fish available. We didn't eat at any of the specialty restaurants since I wasn't going to get up at 6:30 to get in line.... Maybe a different option would be nice. The Mexican Fiesta on Thursday was fun. The bartenders are great... Bring your large mugs, helps to not have to run to the bar as often 😊 Activities on pool deck could lower their sound just a notch... Only negative are the vendors on beach. While you don't have to go anywhere to shop, it's short of annoying how many times you have to say no thanks... But, they do leave you alone, until next round. Overall, it's a nice basic resort. No frills. Food is decent, drinks are plentiful and the beach is great. If you need coffee pot in room and fridge/mini bar, this is not your resort. More>
