Royal Decameron Los Cabos, created a dream vacation. Upon arrival after leaving that hustle and bustle airport we were greeted by Jonathan who gave us the first impression of quality, caring customer service. Every morning when he seen my family and I he gave us that caring smile and came up and asked if we needed any thing, he'd grab our cabs for us and bargained the best price since there was a total of 9 of us family and friends. The grounds are picture perfect never saw a piece of trash or spills.
It seemed like we had our personal help, from bell boys, waiters to even the cooks who would see us and ask if we needed a certain food arranged, and if you did, they'd prepare it exactly how you wanted it. Buffet food was very good, better then some buffet here in the states, all foods freshly prepared and restaurants very very clean. O.K. the beds weren't posture pedic, however when your so relaxed and exhausted from the comfort and fun, you just sleep.
We traveled with one teen, my three young adults our rooms were arranged next to each other and I know my children enjoyed and respected the hospitality they received. The endless free drinks and fun never a complain, drinks a lil weak, hey but when you have all day fun you don't want to spoil the moment with intoxication. Enrique was our fabulous waiter and Omar was our cheerful bartender.. always tipping them and showing our appreciation cause believe me they deserved it. La Luna is the restaurant closest to the beach and you need reservations for dinner only, the food was so delicious and the service was so five star quality, all I can say is you have to experience it. Question will I go back? I have to, that experience is so deserved and expected I have to start planning our next visit and very soon, like in six months. Thank You Royal Decameron Los Cabos, Jonathan, Enrique, Omar, Lillianna, and all the staff for making our vacation become a dream you took care of us all so great, thumbs up and Peace till next time.

I went on a 10 day get away with my parents and my son. Overall, it was a nice resort. The food was great - we never went hungry- and the staff is totally awesome. Enrique, Xotchitl (sp) and Tania in the restaurant were absolutely fabulous with us. In the evenings, it can get a bit loud since we were close to where the entertainment is, but it's over by 10 or so. I'd definitely stay again.
THE MOST AMAZING EXPERIENCE EVER!!!

i saw this hotel on groupon, however i missed the promotion. i read tons and tons of reviews of different hotels in the area. however, this hotel definitely was my top choice for price, cleanliness, good location that was emphasized through the reviews.
upon arrival at the airport - steer clear of the timeshare hawks that will offer you a ride to your hotel for free! scam! i booked round trip airport pickup/drop off through transcabo! they were located outside of the airport upon our arrival... (back to the review)
we arrived at the hotel at 340. let me tell you. the grounds looked just like the pictures!!! breathtaking. walking in there is a huge opening which allows you to see how beautiful the welcoming area is! the woman at the reservation counter was so friendly (i forgot her name), she answered my questions and considering it was my first time in cabo (i had a lot). after finalizing the check in paperwork and paying for wifi (10 usd / 24 hours) and the safe, we were presented with welcome drinks!! delicious! great way to start the vacation! our bellman i forgot his name but he was amazing!!! he gave us a tour of the grounds prior to getting into our room, in the room he gave us a quick run down of the dinner times, the club (discoteca located in the hotel) and offered to get us any drinks! alright! considering we were there during the warriors/cavs championship games. we headed back up to the bar where we were able to get some drinks, watch the game and they have evening snacks from 4-5 before dinner. now dinner! lord! it was delicious!!!! a great arrangment of food. breakfast, and lunch just as tasty. i think they had everything that would suit the pickiest eater. the chefs, the waiters/waitresses treated you like family! they remembered us every day and even remembered our choice of beverages for each meal (amazing), now let me share. considering this is an all inclusive resort (you are not obligated to tip) however, the service is so amazing, you will feel compelled to shell out a few dollars or pesos. oh, and across the street from the resort is the mega mart (like walmart) and starbucks and some other little shops (beware of more time share people hounding you in mega mart. i learned to say "i leave today, and they will leave you alone" lol there is breakfast, afternoon snack, and lunch, evening snack, dinner, and a snack hour (11-1am). oh lets not forget about the pool area!!! lilianna was the sweetest person ever! she does some of the activities during the day, there is also an adult only pool area upstairs from the fitness center. there is a gorgeous panoramic view of the beach (which we couldn't swim in because of the black flag conditions, check with the hotel). if you want to swim at a beach catch a taxi to cabo san lucas (take a glass bottom boat to medano beach). but anyways thanks to everyone at royal decameron los cabos!!! we had an amazing time and i will definitely come back to visit next year 2016!!!!!

Stayed one week at the Royal Decameron, It was just awsome . We never had to worry about finding a beach chair, either at the beach or at the pool. There was many empty chairs always. The resort was very clean and the food was very good. Never had to wait for anything. Eduardo at the Luna restaurant was the best, he is a great waiter, and the bartenders at the adult pool bar were great as well. I really don't have anything bad to say about this resort. We had a great time in San Jose del Cabo. We walked around the town, went to the Mega store and felt no harm. People there accepted us as normal everyday people. The resort , I will return again, we really had a great time. Hats off to the entire staff, management, grounds keeper etc. Great Job, Well Done.
Mostly good...but one deal breaker.

I have been to many resorts and all-inclusives throughout Mexico and the Caribbean and the staff here was one of the friendliest and most accommodating. I also enjoyed the overall layout of the resort. It was fairly small, so it was quite easy to navigate and get around, but never felt cramped or crowded.
Three pools meant there was always plenty of seating wherever you wanted. There were two very large pools and one small one in a more secluded area that was adults only. The only drawback was the music...it was horrible. Think Jock Jams: Mexican Techno Edition and you'll get an idea. This resort is personally responsible for keeping Enrique Iglesias' career alive. It would have been nice if there was some more current offerings or even some greatest hits type of playlists. Anything that wasn't what they had.
The food was above average for all inclusive. I wish they offered a little more variety at the breakfast and lunch buffets it was pretty much the same stuff everyday. While we enjoyed it at the start of the trip, we grew tired of the offerings as our week came to an end. I also might have like a little more authentic Mexican food offering.
We had a wonderful massage at the spa. The spa itself didn't offer much, with only a co-ed sauna. I have come to expect a whirlpool or steam room at a spa, but the sauna was plenty warm and relaxing. The massage itself was wonderful. I am somewhat masochistic when it comes to my massage pressure, and despite their petite size, the therapists packed a big punch.
The liquor offering was pretty sparse. It was Tecate Light, well liquor of super-sweet mixed drinks. Normally you can score some pretty good tequila at these places, but unfortunately there was just 2 kinds: El Jimador and another lesser brand in both blanca and reposado...no anejo. Sadly, they "ran out" of the reposado several times. Additionally, Smirnoff and Tanqueray were the closest thing to top-shelf they had in other liquors.
I've read were people have written that Wifi is $10/day. While technically that's true, it's actually $10 for 24 hours. You can also log in and out. So your 24 hours can last much longer than 1 day. The connection wasn't strong enough to stream music or movies, but it allowed you to get emails and surf the web. The signal was decent in the near the lobby, buffet and in our room, but was pretty sporadic at the pool and snack bar.
Despite all of the positives and the very fair price we paid, I don't think I would return to the Royal Decameron because of the awful beds. Most beds at Mexican resorts are hard, but these beds were brick-hard. We even tried sleeping on the couch in the room to seek relief from these evil blocks of aches and pains. It was a constant topic of conversation whenever you met other guests. Consider sneaking a lounger from the pool up to your room or maybe buy an inflatable raft if you hope to sleep. My attempt at a solution was slipping into a tequila-induced coma.
