Nice staff, clean grounds, good location, hit and miss services

Overall the property and location are nice, with beach access and 4 pools to choose from, including a kiddie pool and an adult-only rooftop infinity pool with swim up bars. The wait staff and bar staff and house/grounds keeping teams are all nice. Grounds are clean, and well-kept. We did all-inclusive and felt we got our money's worth at the buffet and bars, as well a single evening in the reservations-only restaurant. The buffet offered a good variety of food, focusing on local cuisine but also offering something for everyone. Main gripe was the check-in experience and the lack of follow-up when things were not as expected. For example, there were four of us with two king room reservations. Upon checkin, we were offered a connected suite nearer the lobby/eating area, or separate rooms in the quieter areas away from the lobby which we chose. When we got to our separate rooms, each room had two double beds, which we were not informed of when we made our selection (why would they offer us that if our reservation was for a king beds -- do they not have any king beds anywhere?) One of our party called the front desk and they said there were no king rooms available, check back tomorrow, and in the meantime, just push the beds together. Our friends were told someone would be sent to their room to do this, but it required several calls to the desk to finally get someone to do the work. Same thing with activating the safe, which was a $3 upcharge (why?). Secondly, when we first checked in, we asked about internet service. They told us the details, but for some reason could not complete the transaction during checkin; we'd have to get back into a different line to get wifi access, and that line was busy with a dozen new checkins; we were told to come back later. The checkin process for our two couples took about 30 minutes. The staff seemed to be newly trained and lacked an efficient process that included a lot of manual writing on the check-in forms; this after using Expedia to book our package. My feeling is that this recently acquired and refurbed property has a new management staff that lacked a solid hand-off from corporate trainers. Seems they need a process consultant to come in and review and revise many of their operational tasks; I can't believe it's like this all over Cabo. All that aside, the difficulties were manageable and we had a good time. We enjoyed each evening's live entertainment, and warm sunny days by the pool. We booked an excursion for kayaking and snorkeling which was a nice break from our 3.5 days at the resort. It's about a 25 minute walk to the town center if you want to shop.

Our room was 130 which was On ground floor right beside the pool, terrific location close to everything. Room had a king sized bed and pull out couch, very spacious. Walk in shower great pressure and hot water all the time. The check in was very slow we spoke to the manager about this issue and he was very receptive to our ideas on how to make it better, he was extremely pleasant and efficient. The food was good, the only speciality resturant menu changed every second night it was hard to get reservations as we were told it was all booked however it was mostly empty each night! The hotel is spotless, the entertainment was good, however there is a huge lobby which is underused I think a grand piano would help with a sing along in the evening after entertainment is over. Special mention to housekeeping staff - they do a great job. Constantly cleaning with a smile on their face. Socci in the buffet was exceptional. Location is perfect 20 min walk to San Jose or 12 pesos on local bus, great art walk on Thursday night. Also can take a bus to Cabos San Lucas from Meca centre across road. This is our second time at this resort and I would go back. Note you have to pay for safe and Internet.

Poor vacation experience

My wife and I booked a 3 night stay at Royal Decameron for our anniversary this past week. The hotel grounds are nice and the people working there are friendly and helpful, but we were kept awake until 4 am our first night by people playing music and partying in the courtyard. We were looking for a more relaxing getaway and clarified with the front desk the next morning that we could check out early without being penalized. They said that was not a problem and documented this fact. When we contacted our credit card rewards program, whom we booked the trip through, they notified us that Royal Decameron indicated we had stayed for 2 out of the 3 nights. That was not the case, as we checked out before noon after our 1st night. At no point did the front desk staff indicate we would be charged for a 2nd night. I contacted Royal Decameron's corporate offices in an attempt to clear up this matter, but have yet to hear back from them. All in all, it's a decent resort with a nice beach. The rating here is for poor business practices.

Royal Disappointment!

It all started when we checked in. We asked for a top floor room with an open balcony and were assured that it was no problem. When we got to our room we found that the balcony had a thatched roof cover. We went straight back to the front desk to point out their error and were told it would be fixed tomorrow at 11 am. When we got back to the desk at 11 sharp we were shown a room two doors down from ours that was already cleaned and ready to go. The people at the front desk then told us that the room would not be ready til 3 pm because it needed to be inspected by the housekeeper before it could be released. That's when I lost it, and called out the G.M. of the property because I was not about to loose another day of my holiday waiting around for them. He did the inspection on the spot and the room was released to us. The two positive points I have are the room was very nice and clean with beautiful linens and most of the staff were friendly. The food on the other hand was absolutely atrocious! The fresh fruit was good cause it's kinda hard to screw that up and the breakfast omelets were good (again, it's kinda hard to screw up an omelet). But the stuff they were trying to pass off as beef was unbelievably tough, the chicken looked like somebody had gone nut with a meat cleaver then chucked it all into a deep fryer, fish was dry and greasy and the deserts never seemed to change. Little squares of different coloured sponge cake with different decorations on top that all tasted the same and jello. My friend Rick likes jello so he was okay but I was not. I do all the cooking in my home and I appreciate good food. You will not find any in this resort! There is a safe in the room and limited WIFI but it will cost you $50USD for a week.

Nice escape

Friendly staff, clean rooms, great food and convenient location. Would stay there again any time. Too bad we can't go in the ocean because of the waves. Shop around a bit if you plan on going on excursions as the operators in the hotels tend to be overpriced.
