Our Opinion

A quiet and romantic setting that is ideal for couples looking for great service, excellent food and top-notch facilities all wrapped up in a relaxing setting. The Jacuzzi junior suites are excellent, but if you want to go all out, upgrade to the Oceanfront suites or the Swim-up suites with pool right off your terrace. With great service and a gourmet a la carte dining experience that is hard to match, the El Dorado Seaside Suites is highly recommended for couples.


Overview

Fully upgraded, the El Dorado Seaside Suites is now an upscale all-inclusive boutique resort for adults only. This secluded hotel is set on a two-kilometre beachfront, facing a spectacular coral reef and offers luxurious services and creative cuisine. The popular attractions of Xel-Ha, Xcaret and Tulum are just a short drive away. This all-suite resort includes Jacuzzi Junior Suites which feature a private Jacuzzi in your room or on the balcony, and terraces with a hammock. More low-key than many other all-inclusive resorts, it's perfect for a quiet get-away-from-it-all holiday.

Location: Nestled amid 280 acres on Kantenah Beach, a 75 minute drive from Cancun airport, 30 minutes to Playa del Carmen.

  • Secluded and quiet location on a nice beach
  • One of the largest spas in Riviera Maya
  • Spacious rooms with Jacuzzi, free international calling and free Wi-Fi

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • nancyrh2017 :
Great vacation!

We had a wonderful trip! Our swim up suite was very convenient. The food was amazing, also the very best staff. Our suite was roomy and always kept very clean. Fresh towels were brought to our room several times a day.

  • rachaelmM3845QN :
Magical

This resort went above and beyond my expectations. Amazing staff, food, and amenities. We enjoyed a couples massage, snorkeling and relaxing for the first time in years! The resort itself is breathtaking and we are already planning our next visit!

El dorado seaside suites

We were seriously treating like royalty. They are always going out of their way to make sure you have whatever you need. You literally never walk by any staff member without hearing them say hello. We will without a doubt be back. It was such a great stay!

  • sspearsy : Denver, Colorado
Great but a lil disappointed.

The resort is amazing. Very clean. Staff is very friendly and was very helpful. We felt very special when we first got there being greated by the manager, etc. but after that day it was like they were non existent. Room service was not great. Took too long and food was practically cold by the time it came. One morning before one of our excursions it never even showed up...after 50 mins. Told someone, nothing happened. He wrote it down on a sticky note. ?? Maids were good but not consistent. Was missing a bed spread a few days and even after asking for one, it never came. Walls are a little thin. Food was pretty good but wasn't impressed that you couldn't order it to go. You had to sit in the restuarant and wait. The service in the restuarants was also slow. But I had a massage at the spa which was AMAZING! The infinity pool rocked. And it's definitly a couples resort. We were mis-directed by someone and won't go back with friends only.

  • Samantha D :
Amazing Experience!

We booked through a local travel agent and for the months leading up to our trip I thought it would be to good to be true. This resort exceeds my expectations and is the perfect place to spend a fun, yet relaxing, week! Our first floor room leads directly to the main pool, the beach is a few steps away, and there is always someone nearby to help. The staff are friendly, welcoming, and hard working. David and Christopher make sure you are having fun all day at the pool and all night in the bar. (We love them!) Our bartender, David, is a pool shark who has our drinks waiting when we get there. The food is delicious, not a single bad meal yet, and they provide a wide selection to choose from. I would highly recommend vacationing here as it is the perfect place to enjoy Mexico and the Caribbean!
