We stayed at the Royal Decameron for one week in October. Our room was very spacious and our bed was huge (bigger than king size). The hotel was clean and the staff were friendly. There is only one buffet restaurant and one a la carte restaurant. Both were good. The buffet is not huge but it always had a variety of tasty things. Sadly, there was never any guacamole! The bars were good, especially the adult swim up bar where Alain was our bartender and was excellent. The swim up bar in the main pool was slower and not as friendly as Alain. The hotel has no free wifi. We used the near by starbucks for wifi. Also, they charge for the safety deposit box, which seem ridiculous. The hotel is on the smaller side. It is located on a beautiful stretch of beach but the ocean is too dangerous to swim in at this beach. Other beaches (requiring transportation to get to) were great for swimming...playa Chileno and playa Santa Maria were two that we went to. We rented a car for a few days but there are buses that will take you close to the beaches as well as to Cabo. There is a shopping area with banks (ATMs) a quick walk away. The hotel has some pretty strange art work on the walls...a lot of naked women portraits which seems a bit inappropriate for a family resort. The elevator was not working the entire time we were there. The only major complaint we had was the night time snack bar. It was terrible. They make a few hamburger patties and hotdogs or maybe some left over pasta and put it out under a heat lamp. We never ate there because we had no idea how long the food had been sitting for . I think it should be made to order. All in all, for what we paid, this was a great week.

Bang for your buck

The stay was more than we expected. The entire place looks amazing. The pools are nice and the area is well decorated. The food was OK and you will definitely find something at the buffet that you like. Buffet food is buffet quality after all. Brand alcohol at the bar for those who drink. The pros: Close to the airport Fridge is stocked with beer,water,sodas All inclusive-including luna restaurant( make dinner reservations). Show every night if you don't want to leave town. Top shelf liquor--cracked some seals in front of us (jack Daniels,red label etc.) Near local shopping mall, oxxo and san Jose downtown and mercado. Away from the big city commotion, more laid back relaxing stay yet close enough to explore on the days you want to. Cons: All inclusive does not mean 24 hours! All bars have different operating hours and they may not be conveniently located by your poolside. You may have to walk to the disco to get a drink after 11pm or depend on your fridge beer. Pool closes at 7pm! No late night dips:(-----not even the adult pool -_- Its depends on you... but its around 25 miles or average 35-45 minute drive to Cabo San Lucas Taxi is around 30$ or more each way or bus during operating hours $2 a person but dont run after 10pm. A handful of beaches are swimming beaches all others are too dangerous and waves are so choppy. We still took little dips at our hotel beach but just an fyi Beware or mindful of timeshare offers... if you decide to go for one make sure you milk them for all there willing to give ;). Its a good way to get excursions for cheap!! We paid 100$ for parasail, dinner boat, and glass bottom boat tour... after talking to people we determined we may have been able to get these free (but we were approached at the airport by a hotel rep who we believed was being extra attentive in helping us find our shuttle)but all in all $100 for 3 excursions is cheap!

Things to know: not wheel chair friendly. The elevator was not working the entire week, nor was anyone seen working on it. People that were in wheel chairs needed to be carried up and down the stairs for each meal by whoever they were with. Smoking: there is no smoking in the rooms, yet there are not designated smoking areas, so be prepared for a lot of smoke whether it be in the lobby or around the pool, ordering drinks etc Buses It is easy to get into San Jose with a 20 min walk, or right in front of the hotel you can catch an old school bus (#1 to #4) will all work for 12 pesos. If you want to go into Cabo take the purple and orange bus on the main highway in front of Mcdonalds you will see a bus stop(about 5 min walk) and the cost is 37 pesos, safe and easy to use these particular buses. If you need to change money walk to the top of the mega mall and where the Mcdonalds is go about 100 metres toward Cabo and you will get a much better rate than the hotel offers. Food: Food is not available at all times. A breakfast is offered at 7-1030, lunch 1230-3, supper 6-930, there is restaurant by the pool that doubles as a snack bar 12-5. There is also an evening snack 11pm-1am. Be prepared to go off site and purchase your own snacks, there is a convenience store across from the hotel(Oxxo). The food is fair, but not great and it is almost the exact same buffet for every meal with a few subtle changes. There is an a la carte option that is worth trying. This is a smaller resort so it can be easier to talk with other guests as you see the same people often. The pool areas are clean, and the staff seem to take good care of the property. One thing that was noticed the entire week was that the locals get served first. Rooms are clean, if you are travelling as a couple I would suggest asking for a room with a king bed, they also have rooms with two twins. On check in we were given a room with two twin beds, they said we could not change the first night. The second day we changed to the room with a king bed and it was good.

Great stay!

We spent 2 nights here. Had a great room with a very comfy bed and nice deck overlooking the pool. Entertainment was fun, although music was awfully loud throughout the day. Food was good with a nice selection. We had a wonderful salmon dinner at the restaurant where they require a reservation. My only complaint is that they need more umbrellas around the pool. Not nearly enough shade. Very kind and attentive staff.

Birthday get away
