Royal Decameron Los Cabos
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Friendly staff, clean rooms, great food and convenient location. Would stay there again any time. Too bad we can't go in the ocean because of the waves. Shop around a bit if you plan on going on excursions as the operators in the hotels tend to be overpriced.
This was our first time here and will definitely be back! From the moment we arrived until we left we just had a fantastic time! The grounds and rooms are very clean and well maintained. The Guest Services Manager Ricardo was very accommodating to get us the rooms we requested...a lower floor and close to restaurant / lobby and not too far from the pool... which by the way was the perfect temperature!The entertainment staff here really go above and beyond to keep everyone entertained day and night! A special shout out to Alejandra, Omar and Lucero as well as the MC Director Polux...You all are fabulous! The evening shows were fantastic and very professional. WELL DONE organizing such great entertainers!The Pool Bar / Restaurant Luna's staff were all so nice. Especially Alain, Jesus and Salamon. Our a la carte dinners were fantastic! The Mercado Buffet had a wonderful variety and all the food was very fresh and appetizing. Javier the supervisor should be so happy with his staff... especially Jose, Miguel and Xochitl. Always a friendly smile and very attentive service. Luis in the Lobby Bar also made wonderful drinks and Fausto in the adult pool always had the ice cold Corona ready for us. A special shout out to Axel the Bellman as well... so very nice talking to you over the week. We normally travel to Riu resorts in Mexico and the last few times don't even hold a candle to the Royal Decameron in Los Cabos. The food, the drinks, the service and especially the entertainment was night and day in comparison. My only complaint and it is certainly not the resort's fault is the Disco across the street from here... very loud most nights until 4 am (Bring Earplugs)We WILL be back and hopefully soon. Mucho Gracias!!!Tracy & Colin, our Mom Glenda and our friends Mike & Diane.Vancouver, Canada
After spending a week at the Royal Decameron we must enter our review,we have traveled extensively and were really disapointed in the resort.The Resort is lovely,the rooms are very nice and very clean,the staff is friendly and most of them efficient.The Ala Carte Restaurant was excellent with a great location right beside the pool and ocean with great atmosphere and heaters to take away the evening chill.Now the CONS!!! Nowhere in the information were you told of the numerous stairs everywere you went from the lobby to the pool you had stairs except for a steep path employees used on each side of complex in the middle you had stairs to get to the buffet rest.also there is a elevator by the lobby but it only goes down one floor so if you are on anything other than the first floor will have stairs to climb.The Buffet the food was never hot except for made to order items had capaccino that was luke warm except at the ala carte.The selection of food in the Buffet was ok if you like spicey food and the variety is limited on seafood night was very limited.Their was no indication on the days theme for food in the buffet or what shows would be on that night.Also the internet is$10us a day and they charge for the in room safe.The only real gem was the bar in the entertainmet area which opened late afternoon and "OCTAVIO"the best bartender at the resort who was very personable and could make almost any drink while serving many people at the same time,Also the evening shows were great as good as we have seen in the many resorts we have been to.We would like to return to Los Cabos but never to this Resort,if you have a mobility problem this is not the resort for you.On closing this could be a good resort with a few changes (better food-- a board on days activitys--a swim up bar that has stools instead of a ledge that you have to kneel on to get a drink --staff that were a little more friendly --ala cart reservations only available for that day having to line up at 8am--free internet and room safes
I have visited this hotel when It was temptations\secrets so there was some familiarity but a lot of new as well. We arrived New Year’s Eve and were surprised with the number of people that needed to be checked in, on how fast and efficient we got set up and taken to our room. The welcome drink when getting off the bus was a nice touch! It made me feel .... welcome. The room itself was clean and everything was in working order. Equipped with all the basic amenities including hair dryer, alarm clock, flat screen t.v, mini fridge, A/C and in room safe. To use the safe though, you must pay additional $ on check in. The mini fridge comes stocked with 2 bottle water, 2 beer and 2 pops. The bed, was rock hard but the 4 pillows were the softest pillows I’ve ever slept on. In the closet, there's a stand you can take out to place your luggage on so you don't have to leave it on the floor or room couch. A iron / iron board and a helpful tip, A thick brown blanket you can take out with you to watch the nightly entertainment and keep warm on chilly nights. The hotel rooms are a good size for 2 but not really sure how people with kids fared. The room and bathroom were designed with a "Adults Only" concept with the original build (temptations\secrets) hints the bathroom door that doubles up as not only the pooper door, but the shower door as well. Wifi is also available for extra $ but it's very slow. Unless you want to check the weather or send a small email out ... its really not worth it.The overall hotel has been kept up great. I was a little worried about how dated it was but between the money invested in renovations from temptations\secrets to Decameron and the repairs after Hurricane Odiel (seriously ... there's a video on YouTube after the hurricane went through Royal Decameron and the hotel was ravaged) I was pleasantly surprised. The grounds and building are well kept. The pools were also kept and heated with the exception of the adult pool. In fact, the only section I saw that is due for a major overhaul, is the Adult pool. It has definitely seen its fair share of parties and it's showing. When it was temptations\secrets, they would open the adult pool to the general population Saturday nights and the area seems untouched when renos came through. The new section of pool and swim up bar were a great addition to the renovations. The hotel lobby was relocated to the third floor where the disco used to be and is very spacious and modern. The disco was relocated to where .... from what I can remember was the old Asian a la carte? It was smart to move the disco away from the rooms on the third floor as I remember a lot of complaints about noise.The food at the buffet could be a little hit or miss. Perhaps it was because I was looking for a different flavor? Cheesy scrambled eggs, shredded hash brown and chewy bacon would have been perfect for breakfast but nowhere to be found. I absolutely love Mexican dairy, especially their ice cream, but it was not in the buffet around the dessert location.I really enjoyed lunch by the pool though and the A la Carte at night. Could have eaten the pizza and nachos every day. A big shout out to Octavia, Lewis, Enrique and Jose. You guys are the best and made my vacation that much more enjoyable. Also to all the Host staff. These guys/gals are great and I've never seen a host group so engaged with their guests at any hotel before. They're very busy trying to get guests out of their chairs and have fun then fill in for games themselves when they can't get enough people so the ones that want to play still can. The location of the Royal Decameron is great. If you forgot to pack anything.... no worries. These a mall across the street with a Mega ( Mexican walmart ) Just be prepared to be bombarded with peeps trying to sell you excursions up to and including inside the Mega. They see your hotel bands and know you're a tourist. (flies to honey) lol. Overall .. I would return to the Royal Decameron. Its a smaller hotel as other reviewers have said but I really enjoyed the ambiance. Can make friends you can actually find the next day and the service just felt more personal. The only things I did not like about the Royal Decameron were the lack of A la carte’s. 1 carte is not enough despite the smaller size of the resort and the second being how quick they shut everything down at night. I understand it's quiet time by 10pm for families with kids but... we didn't bring kids and would have liked to of socialized with people past 10 that did not include loud music in the background. Don't get me wrong, the disco was nice a night or 2 .. but it would have been nice to have had the option to go somewhere like .. the lobby bar, have a drink or 2 and converse with others past 10:30 when the bartender in the lobby closed down the bar. Despite the negative, I would recommend this hotel overall and Thank you for the wonderful stay. Cheers from Canada
Fantastic holiday at the Royal Decameron. Could not fault anything......very clean facility, super friendly and polite staff, very good food and great location for a quiet getaway. Rooms are very comfortable and well kept. Evening entertainment was excellent 5 out of 7 nights......Broadway show on final night was extremely well done. Will definitely return!
