Another enjoyable visit.....

We were back for our fourth visit to the RDC and it did not disappoint. The staff were so welcoming and it was wonderful to be recognized by so many. We were located in building five and the room was comfortable and the daily cleaning was performed well. Buffet restaurants were much the same lots of selection available and service was good. We went to the Piccolo and Thai restaurant for a la carte dinners and the Piccolo was by far the best with tasty food and excellent service provided. The Thai was disappointing both with food and service and we were seated outside in the extreme heat which made the dinner reservation even more disappointing. We attended only three of the evening shows and found the standard to have dropped with the entertainment from our previous visits. Overall an enjoyable visit and we will definitely return again.... Thank you RDC and your wonderful staff. More>

We visited June 4th to 11th and once again were very pleased with all aspects of the Royal Decameron Complex. We travelled with friends who had not been there in 10 years and they were happy to see that nothing had changed. The hotel is now offering a higher shelf liquor selection (Bacardi, Smirnoff etc) which was nice to see. We stayed in block 4 this time and were happy with our room. The only suggestion I can make is that the hotel should find some small way to recognize repeat visitors, whether it be a bottle of champagne in the room or some other small gesture. Over the years we have met people who have been there up to 15 times and we are getting closer to that number. Loyalty in this day and age is hard to come by and should be recognized. More>

My wife and I knew this was a barely a 3 star resort. It looked old. Key's to your room no card's Our room in block1 was an awesome location right on the beach. Everything else not very good.Walked out of two a la carte restaurants as they were terrible. If you have never been to an all inclusive you might like this. If you have been all inclusive before don't bother. More>

Overall the resort is nice and the people friendly. It's a large complex with 6 buildings. If you need quite then I would suggest buildings 5 or 6. We stayed in building 1 in room 1101. That's where all the parties and events are. It's also directly across from the lobby bar which is open until 1:00 AM. Convenient but noisy. The buffet is good however it's repetitive. We did not try the specialty restaurants. The beach is wonderful with plenty of chairs and nice waves. It's only a short walk into the town of Bucerias. Lots of shops and restaurants. If you are expecting a fancy place with marble floors and granite counter tops this is not the place for you. I would compare it to a Super 8 or Travelodge. However the price is right for this resort. I would recommend this resort if you're looking to save some dollars. As a side note you need to pay for the safe and it's not very big. About 20 US bucks per week. More>
