An amazing place, check in was easy. Food was very good specially when we had Emilio as a server at the beach front restaurant....drinks out this world make by Fausto the best bartender I ever met on my travels around the world. The maids were very helpful as the rest of the staff...sorry I can't mentioned all but all of you are great! Thank you for a wonderful tine!!

The antithesis to the mega-resort!

Love this little place! It's an intimate resort (not hundreds of rooms) with all the amenities you need: comfortable, clean rooms; fairly large pool area; immediate beach access; good buffet variety; good evening entertainment; a 5-minute walk to La Comer (the large-scale grocery story) and Starbucks; a 10-minute walk to the end of the hotel zone with restaurants and coffee shops down the way; a 12-minute walk to the beautiful estuary with many tropical birds; a 40-minute walk to the historic downtown (or 8-minute taxi ride); and so much more. I thought this property was ideally situated for getting "off resort". The bus to Cabo San Lucas stops in front of La Comer, a 5-minute walk away. Taxi service leaves the hotel regularly for the downtown and a mere 100 MXP. (Of course, paying for a taxi or souvenirs in USD and not local currency will always cost more!) The staff at the Decameron are very friendly and willing to help. Highly recommended if you're looking to stay away from the party action of Cabo San Lucas and from a mega resort. This resort provides excellent value for the money.

This all inclusive resort is on the smaller scale, U shaped and the staff is constantly working on it and making improvements which shows. Upon check in we found our room (which are very nice and modern) only to find we had 2 double beds and we had asked for a king size bed or queen. They had also given us a room that was on the second floor right on the corner where everyone in the resort that had a room on that side had to walk by us so there was no privacy. This is a lesson learned to hurry up off the bus and check in to the hotel to get a good room and a bell boy so you can say yes or no to the room before you get in it and they say no about switching or have a hard time understanding you! We had to spend 1 night in that room as we were told there was nothing available till the next day. We had to checkout of our room for 11 and wait until 3 to get our room. This time I did get the bell boy to wheel our bags to our room and checked it out first. The room was great and we were in the second floor and could see the entertainment perfectly from our balcony. Don't forget you have to pay for a safe in the room and I had forgot to get the bell boy to set the safe in the new room so he had to come back and do that. When you get off the airplane get your bags and keep going do not talk to anyone as they are all time share people and they trick you into thinking they work for say air transat but they don't and you could miss your transfer to your resort. You will get you bag go through security check hit the stop or go button and after that you walk through a door with desks on either side and this is where they try to get you then you walk out another set of doors which takes you out of the airport. We went during the end of September so the resort was not crazy busy which was nice as I think the line up for food and drinks would be crazy! The food was awesome you could always eat well. Mexican night was only the night where we still had good left on our plate. For the la carte restaurant we never made a reservation but asked a few nights if there was any spaces available and there was and the food was very good. The lunch buffet was great and you could also eat every day where the la carte dinners are and the food was awesome and so are the drinks! On the top of the gym is the adult infinity pool and swim up bar. Its not a huge pool and there's loung chairs and shade to hide under also. Adrian is the best bar tender ever and don't forget to bring insulated coffee mugs to put your drinks in to keep them cold and covered. We found that the swim up bars and pools closed way to early by 6pm I believe it was. There is the disco which was very dead when we were there but they made great drinks!!! You only get a few water, pop and beer in your room also. If you would like more of something you can ask to exchange your pop for water or beer for the pop which ever and if you would like more then they charge you. We left our lovely cleaning lady goodies and a note every morning and we always had extra water in our room or you can walk across the street and buy 2 big waters at oxo for 86 cents! The beach and waves are beautiful but you can not swim in the ocean in front of the resort it's way to ruff and will suck you out. We did catch the bus and went down to the market area which was a total rip off the prices were way to high and they didn't really want to barder either. We really wanted to snorkel and were told about Cabo and where the locals beach was so we caught the bus out. We got off across from the marina and mall area but needed to go down further to the dock 3 area by the naval base and we had a very hard time doing it as the Mexicans don't want you to go there I don't think and they try to suck you into buying something. We finally had a guy that was standing on the side of the road at a time share booth and he did try to sell us the glass boat ride but we didn't do it we just wanted directions and be able to get on a bus! He was able to get another buddy that could speak Spanish to ask the traffic lady to stop a bus and told her where we wanted to go gave her a tip and off we went. Really you could get off at the mall and marina area but it is a bit of a walk and if it's hot and you're sick of bartering just do the one way walk back to the bus which run until 8pm and some of the Mexican selling stuff guys will try to lie to you and tell you there's no bus running anymore and try to get you a cab don't listen! We did make it to the locals beach but you didn't want to leave your bags just laying there and there was really no where to hide them either. We did go on the glass bottom boat and you were suppose to be able to snorkel at one of the beaches but then apparently we couldn't snorkel at the beach when we pulled up to it another guy on the beach told our driver no.... When we got back to the marina of course our boat driver wanted a tip and we had given him a couple of our beers while on the boat also... They will try to get you at 20.00 American each if not more to get on the boat but you can always get a lower price just walk away as there is plenty of others that will get you on a boat and are happy to take your money! There is a mall across from the resort that you can walk up to as well as a Starbucks where you can get a coffee and check your emails. There is also McDonald's, subway, sushi and a grocery store. Royal Decameron is a small beautiful resort with great food and good service. The night entertainment was awesome and we will bring our kids to this resort also. The pools were awesome and with the resort being on a smaller scale it is perfect for children! The resort staff are constantly working whether it's painting, upgrading the rooms, gardening, cleaning, checking the pools you name it they're doing it and it really shows.

Awesome Resort and even Better Saff!

I traveled to the Royal Decameron from November 12 thru the 19th, upon arrival I was checked in and in my room with in 15 minutes! When I got to my room my fridge was not working, 1 quick call and a new fridge was brought to me right away. This is a small resort only 153 rooms, so no problem finding a chair by any of the pools or getting service! The rooftop adults pool is a very nice relaxing way to spend your afternoon, Adrian was the bartender while I was there and he was amazing! His service was top notch and he definitely knows a few good jokes lol! I will definitely be coming back to the Royal Decameron for sure!

Pay THEIR foreign transaction fees, construction, rude front desk

Stayed here with family. Upon check in Daniel informed us that our reservation was for 2 people to add my husband it would have been an additional 1,500 dollars which forced our family into a situation. After 2.5 days of trying to figure it out I called booking.com and they informed us it's only 101.50 to add my husband. Went to front desk and they then told me it's 108 per night!! 108.50 from 1,500 is a huge difference and could have be diverted if they said that in the beginning. However at this point I'm so frustrated with them that I told them I only wanted to pay what was did online; which is 101.50. They had us sit in the lobby waiting for an hour plus so they could talk to booking.com. I told them that I could call and they kept saying no. Realizing our frustration they left and went into the back so to ignore us because they (Daniel and Africa) don't know how to deal with frustrated guests. Now me and my husband work in hotels. We know how this things happen and how to deal with it. This is a good example of what not to do! In addition they force you to pay THEIR foreign transaction fees. What?! That's not how this works. Customer service at front desk is beyond POOR. Especially with these two. Is frustrating a guest and creating a bad vacation really worth the difference of 57 dollars to you??? What you should have done is apologize, lets us pay the cost that is in your contract with booking.com and waived your foreign transaction fee. Other than the incompetence of the front desk agents, hotel is sub par. You get what you pay for. Would I stay here again? No! However, SAN Jose del Cabo is better then Cabo San Lucas. My suggestion? Train your staff to be self sufficient without going to a boss for every detail. Take some courses and maybe bring in new front desk agents.
