Our Opinion

One of our best sellers! The Royal Decameron is a large, well run hotel with lots of activities and entertainment always going on. Being in Riviera Nayarit, the beach is excellent and expansive. There are many restaurants to choose from and the food is very good. Shopping in Bucerias is literally right outside the resort. Great value, excellent service and a fun atmosphere are just some of the reasons why this hotel is one of our most popular resorts year after year. A solid choice for couples, families and singles.


Surrounded by swaying palm trees and lush green gardens, the Royal Decameron Complex in Riviera Nayarit offers up a splendid all inclusive resort that relaxes its guests with its warm ambiance and Mexican decor. A popular resort amongst Canadian, the Royal Decameron's charming buildings are accentuated by a unique Mexican-architectural style with vibrant hues and multi-coloured tiles. All located on the beautiful shores of a golden sand beach. Whether you're looking for a tropical adventure or a little rest and relaxation, you'll find the Royal Decameron caters to all tastes!

Location: On the beach in Riviera Nayarit, within walking distance to the Bucerias Village entrance, 20 min from downtown, 15 min from the airport.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • shrek0ne : Edmonton, Canada

First off I have been to this resort twice and will be returning the first week of Dec. As most people say this resort is clean and the staff are fantastic. Food between the two trips was hit and miss. I have never had the ala cartes as i travel as a single. Now anyone who reads reviews should realize a couple of things...1. No fridges or coffee maker in rooms,2. you have to pay for a safe,3. drink glasses are tiny thin plastic, 4. The loungers are hard plastic,5. Reservation system is an absolute joke.I agree that at a 4 star resort you should have at minimum a fridge in the room. My main problem is that the management responds that they appreciate the feedback and will make improvements but that is just LIP SERVICE. They have no intention of changing anything as they make money from the sale of mugs and air mattresses. As well it has been mentioned by clients that the resort is catering to a more central/south american clientele. Used to be a mainly north american /european clientele. Which brings up another very important point.The clientele are not "LOCALS" they come mainly from the mexican interior. The staff are just as offended by their behaviour and attitudes as some other people are. PLease do not lump in the staff with these people as the staff are great people.I have had no issue with the adult pool, the staff do their best to keep kids out. I agree that there should be an evening snack bar but as I said the management will not be doing anything. Do not be fooled by their response saying they will. I really wish they would as the decameron could be so much better with such minor tweaks.Finally, Get with the times and have pool and beach service, it would be much appreciated.

No Regrets, Royal Decameron Via Air Transat from YVR, use Paseos

Hello; thank you for choosing my in-depth review that is honest and concise.We left Victoria BC and jumped on BC Ferry walk on service. This is about 18 bucks a person.We got to Vancouver and jumped on a bus and went to Airport Executive Hotel, stayed over then in the morning went to the air port.At the airport check in was a breeze with Air Transat. The flight hosts were nice and polite. We had picked our seats. Most people don't use the computer but we did which made check in a snap. 1 checked bag per person.Made our way through security and waited at A and W.Jumped on the plane, no entertainment. Ok, flight hosts were ok, not great but gave us free juice soda etc, beer was 6.50 operated by FLAIR air lines. Older plane but ok.Landed perfect in PV and then jump on a nice bus to go to the Royal Decameron Complex!Perfecto check in was awesome had to come back for a key to rent the safety deposit box. Give you a free cold drink and check in! Bell boy takes bags to room, they are fine tip 20 paseos. Room was clean and AC not noisy. Block 6, furthest block but also quietest!Went to a bar, met Abel was awesome. Had some draft beer. Not bad... later had our first meal. Was awesome.Shower was awesome, gym near by block 6 was small but good. AC and water cooler, lots of cardio.Bring your own towels as they want to keep track of their towels.Free nightly entertainment! Beach was awesome. Sandy yes some small rocks too.Short walk to the little town nearby. Don't waste time going to PV to buy junk its all the same!This resort has it all you wont be bored. Also bicycles. Nearby is a Walmart shopping center also walking distance a Mexican Walmart. Lots of off site resturants near by too! Wouldn't walk at night but during the day fine! No one bothers you! Just have a plan! This was in September was 32 degrees, hot and humid but not too bad you get used quick. The price was 1600 for two people all in! Perfecto!The staff is good, the drinks are good and you make what you want of it. Have a good trip, next time we go somewhere different, maybe Jamaica ?Bring a water bottle with you, no fridge in room.Its a budget resort lots of Mexican familys but you wanna pay double stay at Hilton! then you can go only once and a while.

First time back in 10 years

We had not been back to the Royal Decameron since we got married there 10 and a half years ago...and had forgotten how much we loved it. My husband and I go to PV every year and this year we were able to take 2 trips there and decided to stay at the Royal Decameron because we got such a great deal. The rooms are basic but clean, the air conditioner worked great, I would suggest having mini fridges as we like having cocktails on our balcony in the evening and would have liked cold drinks as we purchased them from the Oxxo, and getting softer pillows. The food in the buffet was repetitive, but there was a variety so we did not go hungry. The grounds are beautifully kept, staff is wonderful and friendly. I felt safe even walking around by myself at 5am. The adult pool is great as the other pools were quite noisy during the day. The construction in building 1 was not an issue, it is a small building and the grounds are so big that you don't really notice it except when you walk by. We will be torn in March when we go back if we will stay down town PV as we have been for the last 10 years or if we will go back to the Royal Decameron because we loved our stay so much.

Lovely beach but .....

As the heading says lovely beach but there are quite a few negatives which I will try to list as well.Firstly travelling from the UK I recommend an upgrade on the flight as its a long flight and well worth the upgrade with Thomson. The hotel is mainly full of Mexicans with a few Canadians and small spattering of brits, which no doubt is why the hotel is catering for the locals far more than the others. The rooms are fine if a bit outdated but a fridge would help tbh although there was some work going on to upgrade rooms on the beach front. The beach as stated is great but the "lifeguards" and I use that term loosely are bit keen on keeping people out of the water even when the waves are not that big, if they behaved like that in Cornwall there would be a riot. I'm all for safety but please do your job and watch the swimmers don't just blow a whistle at them. The food was a major disappointment and it became very "samey" very soon even for someone like my partner, who is not fussy, whereas myself struggled apart from breakfast and the lunch bar. The staff are very helpful and definitely appreciate the odd tip in the bar as that will get you Sminoff vodka instead of the cheap stuff, in fact we didn't even have to ask for it in the end it was given. As said by others we had a lot of rain in the evenings and the resort floods very quickly and not a lot of help is given and I certainly didn't take umbrellas etc so basically just got wet through. It's a 4 star hotel max but with what we paid we were satisfied. Would we go back ?, maybe but after a long journey to get there would probably go for a more luxurious alternative.

Many changes taking place....

We had a week at the RDC Sept 2 -9th... and found many changes since our last visit last December. The majority of the staff remain wonderful and are a credit to the organization. New uniforms are in place and staff look very professional in all locations.The food was a huge disappointment even in the speciality locations and the white wine remains unchanged and is awful!! The resort was not prepared for the rain downfalls and sadly ourselves and other guests waded in water to get to restaurants... Umbrellas would be a great help even though we had brought our own the depth of the water was great and with the closure of the Tropical Restaurant for a special event created more of a problem for guests, especially as there was no prior notification.Thankfully to the warmth of the staff our week away was not a complete washout but will be looking at alternative locations for our next visit.The renovations occurring in Block 1 was also disruptive and an eye sore for the resort with the demolition taking place....
