Royal Decameron Los Cabos
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
The location of the resort was approximately 15-20 minutes from the airport. The resort is located on the beach but the water is veryyyyy rough and is not safe to swim in. However, the view is wonderful. Downtown San Jose Los Cabos is 15 minutes away from resort that can be commuted via the city buses for $13 pesos per person. San Lucas de Cabose which is more of a party area is approximately 20-25 minutes from Royal Decameron Resort. The property of the Royal Decameron Resort is absolutely beautiful!!! It is very clean and well-maintained. The rooms are very clean. I have only one small complaint involving the rooms and that was the housekeeping services. Upon arrival we only had one wash cloth and had to ask for wash cloths daily. The food was really good for a buffet style resort. I have absolutely no complaints about the food EXCEPT the resort policy says you are not allowed to take fod to your room as they are concerned about bugs.
This is a quiet quiet vacation spot. So keep in mind that this place is just that quiet.... and quite boring.... but its very very nice and well taken care of. The staff is nice, they do not interact with the vacationer much unless they have to. But they work hard. We don't have any complaints it wasn't bad at all its just not exciting.Entertainment:Very boring place. Nothing to do evening. They do have nightly shows, but they are terrible and boring. The show lasts about 1.5 hrs. You can miss it its totally cheesy.NIght club is dreadful. its empty and the DJ plays for himself. they are not interested in even trying to play music we requested and its the only place to drink after 10 pm. so you are forced to go there if you want a drink....Room:Very nice and spacious. Very clean and there is a sitting area which is nice. The bed it supposed to be a King but they pushed 2 double beds together so it was huge but a weird a gap in the middle, but it was comfortable. So no complaints. Bathroom good, clean with a nice stand up shower. No issues with water pressure or water temp. All in all we were very happy with the room. TV was good, we never watched it so I am not even sure it worked. Restaurant:The food is very boring and redundant. Its not horrible like some of reviews I read but its gets boring. It wasn't horrible and it wasn't good either but did satisfy hunger. Good news there is a McDonald's across the street, and some nice restaurant in the plaza. Now what is super annoying is the one a la carte restaurant. there is NEVER any space. You have to line up at 7'am to get a table which we did. Of course when we got to the front of the line it was sold out. And you can book it every day so basically you can spend a week and not get a chance cause some people lined up at 6:30'am! who the hell wants to do that on vacation! that really annoyed us and the consierge didnt really care either. I think that is bad service and def think that they should limit the amount of times you can eat there per room.....There is a small restaurant during the day, which serves burgers, pizza etc. It was good, no complaints...Bars:Pool bar is good just super slow but great staff. The liquor is not the super cheap stuff, you can get Appleton Rum, Smironoff Vodka, JD's so you can get a good drink. The upstairs bar is also good, the staff is greatBeach:The sea is very rough so there was no swimming there all week. Beach is nice. It is roped off and they have beds and chairs. No issues with other vacationers saving the beach chairs so you can't use them. They do have vendors selling stuff. They cannot come in the ropes but they stand and stare at you. The min you cross the rope they are on you but if you are nice and tell them no thanks they leave you alone.WIFI:You have to pay for it . For 24 hrs or wifi it was approx $10 USD - you have to use 24 hrs withing 3 days to finish the hours but you have to make sure you log out every time so the time doesn't get used up when you are not using it. It worked well.Overall:Nice place if you want a quiet vacation. There is't much to do there. After 8pm its a ghost town so do some research to leave the resort because by day 3 you will be bored to tears. You can grab a cab to Cabo or to downtown San Jose. Lots going on there .. it's pricey cab ride but you can at least get away from the one day of utter quietness.... there were alot of families there, this is a nice place for a family vacation for sure.... we had a great time but I wouldnt go back only because it was so boring.
My boyfriend and I went for a quick 3 night 4 day getaway and I don't have any complaints and wasn't a bad deal for the price we paid. Our view from the room was beautiful, the grounds are very pretty, always being cleaned by staff. Our bed was huge, I mean HUGE, lots of room for activities ;-)Bathroom not bad, daily cleaning and restocking of the fridge. I left a couple bucks in pesos for the maid each day. Never made it to the restaurant dinners bc you had to appear in person at the front desk 7:30-8am to pre-reserve which was kind of silly but whatever. I just plain didn't feel like getting out of bed to do that so we stuck to the buffet. The buffet did not disappoint though, we always found something we liked. Also, they serve real Corona, not some bargain Mexican beer and their liquor stock wasn't a bunch terrible rails you hadn't heard of before. I believe I saw Smirnoff which isn't top shelf but it isn't rail either. They'll make you any drink you desire and they were yummy. Oh the one time we did stop at the little restaurant by the pool for lunch and it's like the servers didn't want to serve us bc we just sat there and watched them see us and then not acknowledge until we finally got up and left then we saw the guy stop at the table and remove our menus. That was the first day and that's how we discovered the normal buffet. I don't what the deal was with that but we didn't go back to that snack bar restaurant situation again but again, the buffet does NOT disappoint and the servers working there were LOVELY. very nice, and accommodating. Beach isn't swimmable unless you want to risk drowning in the riptide but it's still very pretty. ALSO, CHECK THE ADULT POOL UPSTAIRS, neat little tucked away spot with its own pool bar and very pretty view of the beach. All in all, we would go back! Thank you Royal Decameron! :-)
If you are looking for a quiet, laid-back and uncomplicated resort, the Decameron Los Cabos fits the bill perfectly. The facility and grounds are very well-kept with lots of attention to detail. The food is great and the rooms are spacious and clean. Room 257 (Ocean View) has an excellent view of the pool and open sea. As with the two other Decamaron hotels we have stayed at (Bucerias and Nayarit), the strength of the hotel is in its staff, who take the time to get to know their guests and always make you feel welcome and appreciated. If you are looking to go into Cabo San Jose (for either the main square or Thursday art viewing), the "Urbano" bus stops right in front of the hotel. Just give the bus driver a quick wave and let him know that you are going to "el centro." The fare was 23 pesos for the two of us, one way.On another note, we did not take bug spray, and I was bit 3 times by seemingly invisible mosquitos, each time leaving quite the itchy welt. These little critters seem to be partial to ankles, wrists and elbows - a quick spray would probably protect you. Access to the mall is right across the street and up the steps. Also across the street to the left of OXXO is a very nice children's playground and an "artificial turf" soccer field. There was a game in the early evening that was free to watch under covered stands - pretty impressive play and enjoyable to watch. We really enjoyed the resort. No problem getting a chair under some shade either around the main pool or on the beach (the adult pool was a little tougher, however). Don't forget to tip and try the Hummingbird - my wife's favorite drink. Thank you, Decameron, for a very enjoyable 7 days!
The staff was amazing. The resort is small but very clean and staff very friendly. Mario from air transat tours was very knowledgeable and helped us book our tours that would best suit us. There were plenty of chairs around the pool so you didn't need to get up early to save chairs. Food was decent but I feel there could have been more of a selection. This resort was kid friendly but not a lot of children. I definitely would say if you are on a budget this is a great place. Lucero was great with activities.
