Good value for the money

just returned at the beginning of the week, the hotel was a little dated but the rooms were spotless and the housekeeping did a great job. Although there was no mini bar in the room there were many bars located on the resort and they were very quick to serve you. There was always plenty of food at the buffets and you could always find something to eat, even for the picky eaters. the beach was very nice and clean, we could always find shade. it would have been nice to have bar service on the beach, i think the staff could have done great on tips if it was available. We were in building 5 by the adult pool, staff did a great job of keeping the area clear of the kids, the pool was very warm, but it is July in Mexico. Many vendors on the beach, there prices we reasonable and if you said no thanks they moved on. We book a tour to Las Caletas with Oscar top tours, on the beach his prices are better than the resort and he is an overall great guy. If you are looking for massages you can get some great deals on the beach and they are only a short walk from the resort. Overall we had a great time and it was well worth the money. More>

Our New Favorite resort!!!!

We stayed here in December 2015 but were going back August 6th, 2016. We traveled with AirTransat (Such a wonderful choice, They answer your question before you even say it. They are amazing) This place was amazing, the staff were incredibly nice,bar tenders remember you and your drink. All staff would say Hi and smile. The entertainment team is hilarious! they always have some sort of game going on. and if you don't want to play their game, They let you use the balls from the entertainment counter. Our room was basic but clean. Large king bed, tv, shower(no bath) , we had a nice little balcony which looked towards the ocean and center green area. My husband and I eat at unusual times and we usually have the problem of not being able to eat when were hungry on vacation cause the restaurants are closed. But not with this resort, I swear there must have been 8 restaurants here. We couldn't walk long without seeing more food. The gym is no Goodlife fitness but its expected. They have 3 nice tennis courts, bike rentals, and a basketball hoop. The spa has great prices and very relaxing massages. These people know what their doing. Any important sport game will be playing in the lobby bar, and just beside that is a stage for evening activities. We had karaoke, casino night, Spanish night, etc. We just loved this place!!! Cant wait to go back in a few weeks for our honeymoon. Definitely recommend! (Tip; You get your safe key from the currency exchange counter, cost 50 CAD or something for 7 days. if you pay us dollar bring passport for id) More>

Brits not Welcome ......

Restaurants close at 1 I got there at 5 mins past was confronted by three managers telling me no entrance allowed after twenty minutes Manager brought me out a plate of cold chips how insulting..... cooked have made something in the twenty minutes!! although disco is open till 3 but most importantly Brits not welcome staff are rude no Hi or morning.... too busy looking after the Spanish Mexican and there is plenty here and the Americans.... resort has no customer service...closed is closed.... lose ur towel pay 15 us ... the crunch comes to rectifying problems it's we will try for the British we know we have a problem quote Ricardo manager .....bar manager says we do not discriminate....that is like saying we do. Then today I brought my fiancé here as a thank u she is highly upset salad unwashed filthy potential food poisoning.... Ricardo and restaurant manager us bar manager came nothing resolved and then at dinner My fiancé found plastic in her food nobody came went to room not cleaned but cheap champagne there which I returned... please do your self a favour take the pound and spend it elsewhere I am still here hungry and angry with 6 nights to go.... will update on Return PS check all glasses and cups before drinking and be ready to be second or third priority at bar and facilities . HI still here today the Rep came to try and help (first choice) called the restaurant manager again said he will try and cook for us. Five minutes later went for breakfast egg's and toast safe food was then served tea with out of date milk spoke to the rudest and most miserable manager by the adult poo he grunted and said get you a new one I decided not to moan although yesterday he knocked into my fiancé and not even a sorry. Went to Miguel's for lunch and paid once again on a inclusive and returned late afternoon decided to try a piece of chicken with a glass of wine ordered wine from waitress got chicken waitress served in excess of nine tables who ordered after me and still waiting twenty minutes later just left . I am in bar now ordered gin and tonic still waiting bar is quiet once again forgotten...three more nights once again will update on return. Oh my God finally a man that cares this manager from block 4 restaurant cooked especially for my finance im the evening was polite and so pleasant went the extra mile the rest jof the managers just talked the talk he delivered the goods Mr Gonzales and Mr Rodriguez it's your duty to reward and find this especially talented individual reward and respect him and perhaps learn from him? Not going to give you his name till I know you have learned some of his skills customer service costs nothing cleanliness is part of everyday life and a smile is a smile... basics of hospitality this guy keeps food for 10 minutes after service ( read earlier notes) ...that's thinking out of the box a man who cares .... This Unfortunately did not continue and the service went back to poor even the assistant manager tried he set up a special dinner at the Piccolo Restaurant but the manager there shoved us in a corner table next to a view of a wall. Then as the Mexicans arrived he gave all the window tables put them together and personally served wine and talked through the menu. Walked out and back to Miquels at Barricuss. Never saw the Rep again great service from First Choice? In Summary Mexicans Spanish get first class service. Hotel is full of Kids and I went in June. Food is Potentially a Hazard to your health. Weather is Good. Grounds and toilets Clean. More>

We enjoyed a week at the Royal Decameron from July 2 - 9, 2016. This was our second visit, We found it during a search for a cheap last second deal online and it was worth it. The RD is probably 3.5 stars in my books. And it's perfectly fine if you go there without the expectations of 4 or 5 stars. But the key thing for my wife and I (in our early 50's) is that it's clean, the food is good and the staff is friendly. Things you need to be able to accept: You will need to pay for the safe in your room; no minifridge in the room; very few brand name liquor choices at bars, surf can be a little rough, difficult to reserve seat at specialty restaurants, beds can be hard (be sure to ask for a cushy topper to be added), wifi only available in lobby areas. Things you'll be pleased with: great beach, lots of different pools, food is great, staff is excellent. Tips.... If you're looking to avoid the kids pool, tell them before you check in. If you're looking for quiet rooms, stay on the outside edges of the resort. We were in Block 3, rm 3409 and it was fine aside from the fact the show stage was right behind us and the 9:30 nightly shows blared through the walls into our room. If you're looking to escape the resort for a nice meal, there are many good options within a ten minute walk of the resort...walk out the main entrance and turn left. Several of the restaurants and little businesses around the resort are owned by Canadians. More>

Wonderful place escpecially for first time

The is for the time of June 25 - July 2 This is my first trip to mexico (or anything other than Disney). This was also my first all inclusive. All I can say is WOW. We landed at 1520 and after getting luggage and getting thru the timeshare people (do not stop and keep group together), we found our Transat person who directed us to the Bus. And off we were. Arrived about 30 min later at the resort. Check in was a breeze (about 15 min and were given a slush drink). We were in Building 1 as we requested a beach front. On the 1st level which turned out to be a blessing as I later dislocated my toe and the stair would have been killer. Rooms - they are basic but clean. Warning to hang your clothes as the drawer has a smell due to the moisture in the air. I brought an air freshener with me and it helped keep the room nice smelling. They did provide 1L of water, wash clothes, soap and shampoo but I always bring my own. If you like to know the time, bring a clock as there is nothing in the room. We really enjoyed our little patio were we had coffee every morning. Some said the noise bothered them. I found the waves crashing very relaxing and the AC was very quiet The food - ate at the buffet for a few of the dinner and breakfast. Prefer the building 4 for breakfast and 1 for dinner. The omelet station was my favorite. My husband asked for fried eggs and he got that too. A la Carte - worth getting up for. We lined up near building 1 and by 720 there is usually a handful of people. Loved Piccolo - ate there 3 times. Was worth getting up a few min early. We are early birds anyway, The Brazilian was good but they bring out the good meat when I was too full to try anymore. Beach - spend time there enjoying the sun. Use sunscreen even if already dark. The sun can get you. Just ask my peeling forehead. Loved the afternoon breeze. Bars - really enjoyed the lounge in building 1. Special thanks to Alexandria - she remembered us and kept our drinks full. We brought glasses from home which was helpful. Shows - only saw 2 as it was rained out 3 more nights and the other 2 we were just 2 tired. Really good and the dancers/singers put so much energy into it. Don't be surprised to see the dancers working other parts of the resort. Language - try to learn a few simple phrases and words before you go. I found they appreciate the effort. I love the language and found it was nice to be able to say hello and good morning to the staff and others. Grounds - they are beautiful. Very well maintained. You see the workers up very early and keeping everything trimmed, green and fresh. Pools- they looked great. I spend 1 afternoon in Building 5 adult only and it was nice and quiet. Transportation - used the shuttle to and from airport. Taxi for a day trip into town Excursions - did the day trip to hidden beach. Had a great day snorkeling and using a kayak and eating wonderful food. Weather - am told for this time of year it was typical. Sunny and hot during the day with the wind rolling in in the afternoon along with clouds. Each night usually had a shower in the evening. Very light, Lots of lightening and thunder which I love. Would I go back - yes for the price and would like to bring my teenager to experience it but would love to maybe try to other side of Mexico. More>
