The path leading up to the resort was nicely landscaped but still had the tropical jungle feel. When we arrived to the resort, we were immediately greeted by their friendly staff who took and tagged our luggage and escorted us into the main lobby. The stairs leading to the lobby doors were made of gorgeous marble, which was throughout the entire resort. Once inside, we were then welcomed by another employee who handed us a glass of champagne and showed us to the front desk. The lobby was huge and there was a big fountain in the middle of the room where a large crystal chandelier hung above. The lobby also included a few of the resorts shops as well.
The El Dorado Royale Resort featured 2 areas; the El Dorado Royale Suites and the El Dorado Casistas Suites. The Casistas Suites were the higher end suites with private balconies and were located in their own private section of the resort. You traveled through the resort by golf carts that ran every 15 minutes. Each group of rooms in the Casistas also featured their own Concierge service. The Concierge was there to assist you with anything you needed like transportation around the resort, reservations at 2 of their featured restaurants or reservations to their on-site spa or the candle-lit dinner on the beach.
I must say, we did not eat anything that we did not like. Everything was absolutely delicious. The only suggestion that we have is that since the resort is known for their gourmet dining, order extra food where-ever you eat because the portions were smaller. My husband and I would each order an appetizer and we would each order 2 entrees.
We had what they called a Jacuzzi junior suite to start, but then they upgraded us to the Casistas Suites due to us being on our honeymoon. Both rooms were exceptionally clean, roomy and the beds were super comfortable. Our room in the Casistas was beautiful, it featured a king size bed, in room Jacuzzi that had a rock waterfall where the water came out of, a private enclosed balcony, indoor and outdoor showers and an in-room safe. We also had our own soft luxurious robes and slippers.
There is a location in the middle of the resort as well as the main lobby where you can also go to book your excursions outside of the resort. I highly recommend booking them through the resort instead of hailing a cab and just venturing out, it is much safer to do that. The excursions are paid at the time of booking and the hotel sets up the time and transportation for you. We did the deep sea fishing and we swam with the dolphins.
