We just returned from 5 nights at the Royal Decameron. We weren't expecting much based on the low price, but we were pleasantly surprised and will definitely go back again. The resort was small and we never had an issue getting a chair in a great location at the pool. We almost cancelled and went to another resort with a kid's club since most reviews said it was not a resort with many kids and we were bringing our 3 and 6 year old (we didn't want to disturb other guests with our children if they were going to be the only ones there). I am so glad we didn't cancel. There were a lot of kids there and my 6 year old even found a friend to play with a few of the days. The great thing though is that it was not overrun with kids and I was still able to relax by the pool or at the swim up bar without worrying about kids running crazy. We liked the food in the restaurants (except Asian night in the buffet was pretty bad) and the drinks were okay. Nothing spectacular, but I haven't been to many All Inclusives with great drinks. The service in the restaurants was hit or miss. Some days I had to beg to have a glass of water and other times the staff was very attentive and one waiter even insisted on carrying our plates to our table one evening. When the service was good, it was really good. When it wasn't, it was pretty bad. Having to line up for reservations in the restaurant was pretty silly if you ask me. We went to go make reservations one evening and they set us up with a reservation at 9:30pm. We told them no thank you since we weren't sure our young kids could hang that late. They instead gave us a table at 6:30pm, which definitely made us wonder why they didn't offer that in the first place since our kids were standing right there when we booked. The downsides of the room was the bed was not comfy. I woke up sore most mornings since the bed was so hard. When we checked in we asked for a King room since we brought a cot for our 3 year old and I saw they had a sofa bed in the king rooms. They asked if we wanted "the big bed" which we thought was the king room and we said yes. Apparently the "big bed" is a HUGE bed. They pushed two double beds together and made it into one big bed, so we found out the hard way there was no sofa bed in that room. The door also had a pretty big crack under it and you could hear everything outside of your door, which was fun when people were rolling their luggage across the bumpy tile floor at 5am or at 2am when people were returning from partying. We had a third floor room and a great view of the property and the ocean. The property was very clean and well kept. The other negative of this hotel was I felt like they nickled and dimed every thing. It was ridiculous to pay for Wifi, a safe, if you lost your bracelet it was a pretty hefty charge. I would much rather they raise the nightly rate and have everything covered. The entertainment staff was a lot of fun and we had a blast participating in their events by the pool. The gym was pretty outdated, but had a spectacular view of the beach and ocean. The spa was pretty basic, but my massage was amazing. Definitely a great value too! Overall, we really liked this place and would go back again. It was in a great location and a beautiful resort. Definitely lower your expectations that this isn't going to be a Secrets or Paradisus type resort, but you can't beat the value!

Fantastic Small Resort In a Great Area

The Royal Decameron reminds me of the Little Engine That Could. This is a small resort for a very good price that delivers more than expected. For the price the Royal Decameron is a great value. I have been to a few All Inclusive resorts in the past and they all cost more than this place but it doesn’t mean that they were better. The resort is very well maintained. You notice that as soon as you walk in. The grounds are beautiful and the hotel is clean. The people greet you with a smile. The smiles continue throughout your stay. Thank you to Neff and Daniel for the special treatment you gave us. Because the resort is small there are only two places to eat. There is a buffet and a restaurant by the beach. You have to make dinner reservations for the restaurant but can just walk up for lunch. We thought the restaurant was very good. We ate lunch there most days and they served fajitas, fish tacos, sandwiches and pizza. They also have other items on the menu that seems to change every two days. We only ate at the restaurant once for dinner but the night we were there it was very good. The buffet we only ate breakfast but I had no problem with it. There was a large variety of food to eat and also a cooking area to get omelet’s and eggs. The hot food was hot and the cold food was cold, which is something that wasn’t the case in other 5 Star resorts we’ve stayed at in the past. I thought the food was very consistent. Have I had better foods in high end resorts? Yes. Have I had worse food in high end resorts? Yes. Have I had a better consistent food experience in high end resorts? I don’t think so. The bars were really good. The pool bars were great as well as the lobby bar in the evening. We got drinks at the Disco in the later evening. There is no issue with getting premium liquors. Octavio and Jacob were really good bartenders. The pool and beach area were really nice. The pool isn’t huge but it’s big enough for the resort. No problem getting a chair at any time. There is a shade area that you can utilize if you get too much sun. There is also an adult pool above the family pool with a nice bar and a great view. The beach is great. You can walk forever. The sand is a little soft in places so it can be a bit hard to walk in those areas. You can’t swim in the water unless you are a very strong swimmer. I wouldn’t recommend it though. The rooms were OK. They were clean and it seems like most rooms have a good view of the ocean. We got the cheapest room in our package and we still had a really nice view of the pool and ocean. The only issue with the room was it seemed like it was a little outdated but not awful. The beds were huge. Bigger than a King. When you are there ask why those beds are so big and it may surprise you. I wasn’t in the room much but when I was it wasn’t anything I’d complain about. Just understand you get what you are paying for and you’ll be fine. The location is fantastic. It’s close to one of the greatest towns I’ve ever been to, San Jose Del Cabo. Much better than Cabo San Lucas unless you want the party area. You can take a taxi to town for $10 US or take the bus for $1. The bus stops right in front of the hotel. Get some pesos and the bus is cheaper. There is a huge store just across the street where you can get anything you need. Bars and restaurants are down the street within walking distance if you want a night out and don’t want to travel. The entertainment was great. The people always had positive attitudes and smiles on their faces. One night they had a band in the pool area and people were dancing and having a great time. My hats off to Alejandra (Allie) who was the best. Managers at the Decameron better treat her well because she is such a great girl. Wish she could work with us at my company. I’m sorry but I don’t know the rest of the names of those folks but my hats off to all of them. Finally, our criteria for this vacation was: Go cheap (around $1500 to $1600 from Dallas) Be on the beach Nice pool Eat good food Be able to relax All inclusive. The Royal Decameron met all our needs and exceeded some also. I was very impressed with the consistency of the hotel. The people were great. I think some folks may have had trouble understanding English but I’m in their country so that’s my issue. I can’t wait to go back to this great small Mexican feeling hotel.

We stayed at the Royal Decameron for 4 nights at the beginning of June, the hotel was nice, small and quiet as its off season. Only one buffet and one restaurant that you have to make reservations for they alternated 2 menus on the nights we were there. The alcohol options also not the best, the best vodka they had was Smirnoff, the staff was nice. Also to use the room safe it was extra and also to have access to WIFI it was extra.

Had such a wonderful time. Pretty quiet time of year for the resort, but staff and facilities were great for the value! Special thanks to Francesco, Rita, Oscar, Rhalia, Wendy and Octavio and Said!! I was so spoiled!

So much fun!

We booked here a few weeks before going - hesitant about Cabo because our first time there was decent but not our favourite place to go in Mexico (this was at a different hotel). Our opinion of the area has changed thanks to this vacation. We have previously stayed at other Decameron properties - Bucerias and Los Cocos. We have been repeat visitors to those hotels and we will be repeat guests at this hotel now too. The size is perfect - nice small place - we met so many people. The dinner buffets didn't excite me the first couple of days but got better each day - so overall was good. The best?! Fish tacos in the snack restaurant at lunch near the pool - I am now addicted to fish tacos which is pretty amazing since I generally don't eat fish lol! We planned to go out to restaurants a couple of nights but on both of those nights the buffet looked good so we stayed at the resort. On our last night we went out with some new friends for a birthday celebration dinner at the buffet. The staff knew of this before hand and had made a special cake for the birthday girl - what a nice touch! We participated in many activities with the animation team - our suitcases were full of prizes! Our faves were Edgar and Lucera - thanks for so much fun! Octavio was an awesome bartender - always pleasant and personable. Sergio at the front desk was very helpful and nice. I booked one tour through the Transat desk - swimming with the whale sharks with Cabo Adventures - priceless! What an amazing experience. This was a perfect quiet laid back vacation. This will be another Decameron property we will visit again.
