This was our second trip to the Decameron. We went last year and loved it!!!!!! We booked again for Feb 2015 for a group of 10. Sadly to say it was NOTHING like the previous year. The food was less than desirable, the drinks were not nearly the quality of the year before, but the worse thing of the whole trip was the service!!! Some of the servers almost chased you down for tips, they actually would get angry if you didn't leave something. When you are in your swim attire it is very hard to carry cash. Paying 3300$ for a week I don't feel you need to leave a tip at EVERY meal! The grounds however, were always clean and neat. The rooms were kept clean as well. There was one staff person who was awesome...Hugo, he was so sweet, and tried to get the people in the "groove" of things. None of the other staff stood out, some were nice some just were just there and not that happy about it. We made the reservation almost a year in advance and requested our rooms all be on the ground floor and near each other, well we were no where near each other, scattered all over the resort. Will be go back again......NO...would be the answer to that. Good luck future guests !!!! I will say that the recovery from the hurricane was better than we had expected through Cabo in general.

I'm giving this a 2/5 and that's because I feel bad for giving it an even lower rating. I'm usually very generous with reviews and it takes a lot for me to dislike a place. What made this place nice was the weather and just being somewhere warm.
It is true, you cannot swim in the ocean. The waves are too strong and so is the undertow and it's way too unpredictable to just swim at your leisure. On the last day, we went in to about our knees, but that's it. This was disappointing for us, but it has nothing to do with the resort.
Our toilet wouldn't flush properly and though we thought it was fixed after the first day, it wasn't. it was a constant thing. It wasn't plugged, the flush just wasn't strong enough. So throughout the 7 days, we'd have to wait for housekeeping before things were flushed. We would've had our room changed, but then it just got to be too late, and it didn't seem worth it. But in hindsight, definitely would have switched.
You have to buy wifi, which we did and used it very conservatively. If you sign out, the 24hrs wifi you buy will definitely last you the 7 days. One day, we only had (2-3 days into our trip) we went from 18hrs to suddenly only 6hrs. When we spoke to the front desk and they said they couldn't do anything and that we were probably downloading too much (which wasn't the case). After about 20min of speaking to them, they agreed to add 6hrs back on. After literally 15sec, we checked and nothing was added. The front desk tried to say we were using too much and the IT people couldn't add anymore. Basically saying we used 6hrs of wifi in the 15seconds we left the desk and came back. Finally they referred us to the customer service desk who finally said "Oh yes?IT will add it back". All of a sudden. We just didn't understand why this had to be such an issue or take so long. It was so unnecessary.
Lastly, on the last day, my husband got very sick. Sick to the point that he had diarrhea that lasted him 7 days after returning home and he needed antibiotics from his doctor before getting better.
The weather was beautiful, we had a wonderful excursion, and just enjoyed being with one another, but I wouldn't return.

We loved the size of this resort. It's on the smaller size but never had to fight for a beach chair which was awesome. There is additional Roof top pool for 18+ with a great view of the ocean. Staff is very friendly & accommodating. Jesus went out of his way make we were accommodated with an ocean view room. Only complaints are that you have to pay for the wifi service & use of the in room safe. They could also do a little upgrading on the food.
Staff are amazing.

A little resort with huge heart. The staff makes a huge effort to get to know everyone at the resort. Within a very short time the staff are calling you by name. They will do everything to make you feel at home.
There are only two restaurants with a little less variety than larger resorts but still good. And there are lots of places to explore off campus.
I read the review complaining about two beers and two waters....there is a Mega store across the street......just go pick up what you need (don't be cheap with your Pesos).
Where else where you go and get a hug good bye?
Go and enjoy!!

My husband and I just returned yesterday from an amazing week at the Royal Decameron. This was our first trip to Mexico and we were not disappointed. We couldn't have had a better time on our vacation. The Royal Decameron was a pleasant surprise. We had read many reviews before our trip and anticipated a good holiday but it still exceeded our expectations. Our room was perfect. We had a king bed and although it was firm, it was still comfortable. We were in room 246 and had a view of the pool as well as a slight ocean view beyond. The food was good. The A La Carte was fantastic. Book early (8am each morning) or you will not get a reservation. They change the menu a few times a week. The buffet meals were good and catered to a variety of tastes. There is a mall across the street with the Mega, which is similar to a Wal-Mart. It has everything you may need. There is also a Subway and Starbucks, in case you want a little taste of home. We spent our last dinner next door at Cynthia's, which is a small, romantic, organic food type restaurant. The dinner was amazing - try the fresh guacamole or the pizza!! Fantastic! The pool area was perfect. There was never any issue finding a seat at the pool or at the beach. We enjoyed the adult only pool/hot tub area as well. Music was great. No complaints there. Although there is an undertow at the beach and you are unable to swim, it was still beautiful to watch the water and go for long walks along the beach. The property is small and easy to get from one end to the other. The grounds are well kept and pleasing to the eye. Spa services are fantastic and the gym facility is adequate as well. The staff go above and beyond and we met some really great employees of the resort, especially our friends in charge of the activities around the pool during the day and the nightly entertainment. The only thing lacking to some extent were a few of the evening shows but the staff try their best to make every night memorable and exciting for the guests. We also had the chance to meet many amazing people there that we hope to remain in touch with. We shared a week of great times, making for many great memories. We would recommend this resort and will return in the future, I'm sure. Although the Cabo area was hit by a devastating hurricane in September, you would not know it by the wonderful condition of this resort. Thanks so much to everyone at the Royal Decameron for making our vacation a memorable one.
