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.

Get Ready to Walk!

This resort is very clean, if a bit dated. We stayed in Block 5 which was home to the adult only pool. Beside the pool, there is a bar and restaurant in that block. There is no elevator...stairs only in the 4 story building. The rooms are large, but sparse. Our room was cleaned daily. Everyday we ate breakfast at "our" restaurant where the coffee and service were excellent. The buffet was filling, and every morning there was a selection of fresh fruit, rolls, homemade yogurt, eggs to order, plus an array of other options. The beach was approximately 3 city blocks from our the direct route. The resort is very large and spread out. And away from our block it was very noisy. Friends enjoyed yoga on the beach in the mornings, and the $20 message on the beach was well worth the price. The food is plentiful as are the drinks. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I recommend this property.

Amazing beach and resort

We arrived at the RDC on May 13th and stayed until the 20th. The resort is absolutely beautiful, the colors, landscaping, pools etc. The service was awesome. Our room was pretty standard, but very clean and comfortable, how much time do you really spend in the room anyway? We stayed in building 5 which is across the cobbled road and has the adult pool and nice and quiet at night which we were happy with. There are two buffet restaurants so if you don't like what's being served at one you can always go to the other. There are also 5 ala carte restaurants that take reservations. The beach and ocean are awesome, much softer sand than at the other end in Puerto Vallarta. I would definitely come back, in fact have already made reservations for November.

Little extra to give this resort a 4 star

My wife and I stayed in this hotel for a week this month. Our stay was enjoyable and we were in the adult only wing which added to our pleasant stay. The food was fine and excellent at the Mediterranean and the Brazilian a la cart. The waves on the beach were rough but the pool is great. There is a flee market and few shops within a walking distance or you can take the buss to nearby town. We felt safe and the weather was perfect.Some comments and I hope management will consider this constructive;A fridge in the rooms will add value. If you need a cold drink in the middle of the night or you ran out of drinking water, you need to have a fridge in the room. Some people also need to store their medication in the fridge.There are only few fridges available at the resort and many guests couldn't obtain one.A net around the restaurants to prevent birds coming and sharing the buffet. Worst if guests share with the birds what the birds leave behind.

Excellent stay

The resort is lovely, the staff super-friendly and helpful, especially Marisol in the dining area. The rooms are basic, but spacious, but can have very noisy aircon units. The sea appears more brown than turquoise blue like the Caribbean side, and the waves are really strong and powerful. The food does get repetitive after a while and you do get fed up with the Corona, the only lager on site. The staff are always cleaning everywhere you look. The speciality restaurants are hit and miss. The ribs in the Asian are to die for, and the Italian is very good-it appears that the wine selection here seems better than in other places, where it is disgusting!My only criticism is the info you seem to get, perhaps due to the quality of our rep. Two of the speciality dining places convert to snack bars at lunchtime, where you can simply have chips and burgers/ hot dog/pizzas for a quick snack, rather than a full buffet meal. We discovered this about day 10 of a 14 night holiday. The guest mix is about 60% Mexican, 30% Canada, 8% USA and about 2% Brits (there are only 2 flights a week from England-one from LGW and one from MAN). However, every single person we met from wherever were so, so friendly and chatty. The parasols are lowered at the pools nearest the beach after 2pm, as the wind gets up every day and the loungers are really cheap uncomfortable plastic. With the lovely little port of Bucerias nearby, this is more authentically Mexican than the resorts in the Caribbean, but I think I still prefer the Caribbean side overall. All in all, a very good place for couples and families. Although you have to pay for an in room safe, we didn't bother as being all-inc, we didn't take that much money anyway. Thomson, or the German brand TUI, as they are now known, will I'm sure be actively promoting this in their home market of Germany, and I can see it appealing. So I would imagine over the years there will be more German and Scandinavian tourists flocking here, so I would get there before it becomes massively busy with Europeans.

Better for adults

We took my 4 year old. The food was excellent and the grounds well maintained. Walking by the solitude of the adult pool everyday was enticing unfortunately all of the other pools were over crowded and chaotic. The hotel was at capacity for cinco de mayo which perhaps contributed but they would benefit from one more larger pool. The two by the ocean are small. There was a movie for children but started at 9pm so we couldn't participate. The other shows were for adults. Overall, I think this would be a great spot for an adult vacation but wasn't ideal for traveling with young children.
