This hotel is located about 25 miles away from Cabo San Lucas and closer to the airport in the quiet town of San Jose Del Cabo. It has a nice view of the beach although swimming is prohibited at all times due to the strong currents. The hotel is considered a bit smaller than the other hotels but what it lacks in size , they sure made it up with good service by the amazing staff and it immediately made a good impression from the day I checked in. The hotel looks cozy and perfect for couples and honeymooners. The room is always clean and nice interiors. The hotel provides nightly entertainment for the guests like karaoke nights , Latin nights and Couples nights. The wifi is decent at most but not free and additional charges apply. The food for the most part is not bad and they try to not repeat menus as much as they can for the 5 day stay I did but at some point some cuisines will be repeated. I always like the fresh fruits that they offer. Again, the staff are attentive to your needs. The hotel also has a spa and gym to burn the fats away from all the food and drinks you indulged :-).
I didn't rent a car and to go to Cabo San Lucas, I learned to ride the public transport and it's a $2 fare one way. Cabo San Lucas is definitely a party place where the Los Arcos can be seen and San Jose Del Cabo is very laid back and culturally inclined.
Overall, this hotel made a really good impression on my first stay in San Jose Del Cabo and for the price, it's definitely worth it and won't mind checking in here again knowing that the staff are eager to make sure your stay in Royal Decameron would leave a lasting memory and comforts while enjoying the sights and sounds of Los Cabos. A special shout out to the front desk staff specially to Roman who made sure this Pinoy was taken care of with exceptional service. Muchos Gracias!

I can't believe the value we got for the price we paid at this resort. We used two Groupons to get two rooms for our family. As soon as we arrived the valet and bell hops were waiting at the door to help. Before we could even make it to the check in desk a waiter served us welcome drinks which we really needed because in August it was sweltering. Since we were early, the front desk told us we could enjoy lunch in the restaurant until our rooms were ready. By 3pm they had one room ready, the other one took a while longer. They were unable to get us rooms close together but they did give us one with an ocean view. I really appreciate the consideration. We are very likely to return to this resort because of this type of customer service. All of the employees are very courteous and professional. They work very hard. The crew can be seen maintaining the grounds every day. They paint, mow, hang new awnings and rake the zen gardens. The room wasn't as perfect as a Hilton would be - a few cracked floor and shower tiles but it was clean and housekeeping service was excellent. There are daily activities like yoga and water volleyball every day. Every night at 9:30 there is a live show. It's very much like a cruise ship. The Emcee for the show is very enthusiastic and good at getting the crowd involved. The food is good with a lot of variety. You can make a reservation for dinner at the second restaurant which is very upscale. All of the food and alcohol is included in your stay. My favorite part of the resort in the swim up bars at all the pools. I just wish the pools would stay open past 8 pm. They were very polite when they kicked us out of the pool. We loved it here and want to return. Special props to our favorite valet/bell hop Axel. Thanks for the wonderful service.

My wife and I booked this hotel last minute thru Expedia from Denver. We got a very good deal for a 5 night trip. We were a little worried about the hotel based on some of the recent reviews. It turned out to be a great hotel with good food, service and entertainment. It is geared towards adults and I did not see many kids there. There is no kids club for them and not much for them to do. Most of the activities are for adults during the day.
We arrived late in the afternoon and were checked in very quickly. We had sent a note that we were celebrating our anniversary. They had a bottle of champagne for us in our room. We were on the 3rd floor towards the end and could see the ocean. The room was kind of small with a king bed, a couch, a table and a dresser with the TV and fridge. The bed was VERY hard. The bathroom has a glass door for the toilet/shower area. It is the same door for both. You can close it when you use the toilet and the show is open then you swing it the other way to close the shower. You can see through it when you are in the shower or using the toilet. It was fine for us as a couple but could be awkward for a family. Room was great.
The grounds and pools are nice. There are 3 pools. Two in the main area with a swim up bar between them and one upstairs in the adult area. We stayed in the main area. The pool upstairs was small and probably got very warm during the day. The ones below got warm and they were much bigger. We were always able to find a chair around the pool. There were only a few areas with shade. The main pool area has no shade at all. They should invest in some umbrellas for that area. We were down at the pool by 10 every day and always found shade but the hotel was probably only 40-50% full I would guess. Pools could use some maintenance but very clean. The activities staff did a great job. If you wanted to participate they had activities all day at the pool and evening entertainment in the main plaza area or the disco. They work very hard at keeping you entertained and do an excellent job.
If you are looking for a bar there are plenty- at least 3 open most of the time. There is a lobby bar, main plaza area bar, pool bar, upper pool bar, disco bar and restaurant bar. You could always get a drink. The wine was pretty good and you could get 2 beers on tap. The liquor is not top shelf but you could ask for some of the better brands and it was not a problem.
The food was very good. The buffet is set up for breakfast. There was always cooked to order eggs and they had either french toast and waffles or french toast and pancakes. There was always lots of fresh fruit and other side dishes that changed each day. Even though the buffet was small there were lots of good choices. For lunch you could do the buffet or the restaurant by the pool. The pool restaurant menu is a little limited but very good. For dinner it is the buffet or pool restaurant, which you have to make reservations for in the morning. Never had a problem getting a reservation. Menu is limited but very good.
I am not sure how people can give this hotel such bad ratings. Maybe you get back what you give to people or they are super picky. This is not a 5 star resort. In my opinion you get much more than what you pay for here. Nice resort, good food, good drinks and pleasant staff always willing to help.
Great resort for the price

I always use the tripadvisor reviews to help me select a resort for our vacations and I avoid the low rated resorts but I picked the Royal Decameron for this trip because we found a price that could not be beat. In the weeks leading up to our trip, we were concerned with the bad reviews posted about the food but we had no complaints about the food. The staff is very friendly and the grounds are super clean. I didn't mind paying the WiFi service because it was a strong and fast connection and we were able to get a connection all the way down to the beach. The Mini Fridge is stocked with two bottles of water, two sodas and two beers. We asked our housekeeper to stock the fridge with just water and she did it for us.
Don Antonio at the upstairs pool bar was our favorite bartender because he was full of funny stories and he did a great job of making the drinks for us. I am glad that we stayed here because it definitely lived up to our expectations.
