Royal Decameron Los Cabos
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
We were there over New Year's Eve for one week with a group of 8. Our room was great only because we paid an extra $100 for ocean view and ended up with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (and two fridges, closets, etc.) It was great to spread out and each have our own bathroom. The others in our group found their bathrooms small. We've been to all-inclusives in Puerta Vallarta, Cuba, Dominican and the Mayan Riviera. This was the smallest by far. The buffet was very monotonous with breakfast being the best. The desserts at dinner looked like they'd been sitting out for hours. There is only one a la carte restaurant and we booked it for New Year's Eve. The food was horrible. Undercooked, overcooked or tasted bad. Not one of the 8 of us enjoyed it. The wine was particularly bad and they wouldn't serve anything else with the meal. The party was pretty good, but because there are only 150 rooms at this resort, there weren't many people there, although more than the rest of the nights. The evening shows were all quite good. The drinks were sporadically good. No two bartenders made any drink the same way and they all had to look at the drink menu to see how to make them. It was bizarre. One guy made mudslides with some kind of fruit juice added, the lobby bartender made margaritas with some orange syrup that tasted like aspartame. The only consistent drink was beer. The staff were excellent though. They really made the difference. Miguel in the buffet and Serafin in the lobby were always awesome. Housekeeping did a great job as well and with two fridges we always had lots of water. Taking the bus to Los Cabos was fun and if you want to snorkel (with your own gear) go to Playa Santa Maria (the best) or Chileno. Also the grocery store near the resort (La Comer) is great for pharmacy items, extra water, snacks and tourist items to take home. Or go across the highway to Chedraui Selecto, which is bigger and has better booze prices.
This place could be really nice but the management doesn't really care about every one. First the good. The distance to the airport is really short like 15 mins. Because of this you really don't need a car. If you do rent one they have free parking. If you like walking this is the place for you because you will walk a lot and take stairs for everything. We didn't go hungry. There was always food available. Now the rest.Per the manager: they allow anything so whatever you want to do do it. They won't say anything to you. With that said the resort music is SUPER loud and people on the theoretically peaceful beach were playing their music and it was also loud. Do u think the manager cared. Nope. They do not have room service so someone in a previous review lied. They also do not have wifi. I paid for it could NEVER connect spoke to the manager and was told the technology guy was gone home and they would fix it. Do u think I was refunded. NOPE. The entertainment was horrible. The food was the same every night except one and it was gone so fast. And it was mediocre at best. The room was adequate in space however the bathroom was like something you see out of a Micro efficiency where there was a door to the toilet but it was also the shower door. Yeah wrap your mind around that. I would never ever go back or tell anyone else except a sworn enemy. Like I said the beach was beautiful but not relaxing because of the lack of management here. Don't waste your money or time unless you love loud music and lots of kids. They should be managing a pizza restaurant with video games.
To fellow Canadian travellers and anyone looking for a good hangover drink: This resort serves actual Caesars! My husband and I stayed at this hotel for a week over the New Year and had a fabulous time! Vesper's hospitality was amazing! Jafete made our stay personal and entertaining. The hotel put on an impressive NYE party around the pool with entertainment, decorations, and drink service. We rave about it to everyone and would go back there anytime. The resort was rather tame and relaxing over all while we were there. We made some great friends among the guests. Food was average and plentiful. The downsides are that the beach was not swimmable ( you could see the strong riptide in the water). Also, we found there was a lack of bottled water in the off hours. We had to go hunting for it.
Arrived with a friendly greeting from our Air Transat Rep Eduardo and Cesar... these guys are awesome! Check in was quick and painless, only thing is you have to pay $50 us for use of safe and wifi for the week ( but worth it) Lots of stairs , but found ways to bypass them! 3 pools, 1 adult infinity pool..... my favorite spot!! Bartender Vesper made the best mojitos. Food was good, buffet and ala carte( which was the snack bar during the day) waiters are friendly and get you what ever they can( very accommodating) Miguel , Phillip, Abel, The shows where great, the entertainment staff go above and beyond( Bryan , Anthony and our lovely Paulina) played bingo poolside, lots of little games with prizes! They say the beach is not swimmable, but during our stay Nov 25-Dec 2 the rip tide was calm and people where swimming. The concierge Santiago was so helpful with things around the area, any concerns..... he was right on it! And Serafin, who hailed the cabs for us.... overall great hotel, would go back in a heartbeat.... beds firm but sleepable, rooms clean, mini bar in room. Throughout our stay we would see the reps Eduardo who was always keen on asking us how our stay was, and was there anything he could do to make it better! All very personable!!
This hotel is not great and not bad at all. It used to be a swingers hotel so there are paintings of naked women all throughout the hotel. We had to call Housekeeping at least twice every day to bring a facecloth (washcloth) and hand towels. Upon arrival we discovered no faucet fixture in the shower. However, the servers, entertainment staff and grounds people are exceptional! Everyone is very hard working, humble, no bad attitudes. They are happy, smiling and sincerely appear to enjoy their jobs. The nightly entertainment is great and there are activities by the pool as well. The hotel is clean, the rooms are a good size. The pool is great but the separate adult pool is even better. the bartenders flow alcohol freely and make the best Mango Mojitos. They don't ask for your age to serve alcohol so if you're bringing young children BEWARE. The buffet restaurant had alot of variety for all meals.Oh! The safe costs $3/day and Internet is $10/day but they charged us a package deal of $50 for both for 6 days and you have to pay for this up front, preferably cash. Bring lots of small bills to tip your servers. it's not required or requested but you're going to want to!Also, the hotel is in San Jose NOT Cabo San Lucas. SO there's no bars, no partying strip, no hanging out. It is definitely much quieter than Cabo San Lucas but has a grocery store across the street and a shopping area within about 20 mins walking distance. Taxis cost $30 to go from here to Cabo San Lucas and as much as $40 at night.
