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
  • C D : Langley City, Canada
Great Experience - Excellent Staff

So my husband and I have done Cuba all inclusive trips several times, this experience surpassed our Cuba expectations (if you've been you'll know what I'm talking about). The hotel was older but so well maintained I was impressed, each day the staff at the hotel did full maintenance! Our room was clean, the housekeeping was excellent! Some reviews are positive for this hotel others are negative, I firmly believe if there was a negative review it was too high expectations (go in with a 3 star mindset), or possibly they did not tip (you don't need to tip like a Rockefeller but a little gratuity goes a long way). So the question is would we go again, the answer is yes - but next time I'd be more adventurous off the resort!

great value, good food and friendly staff

We were looking for a get away from the ice and snow at home and this was only 4 1/2 hours away and the price seemed reasonable. They exceeded our expectations!! The complex was clean and the service and hospitality were great. Staff and visitors were friendly as were the locals when we traveled by city bus to PV. You have to try the city busses, they are and experience!! The beach was a bonus after some people telling us that the beaches in PV aren't that good. We were also surprised by the quality of the entertainment after being at some resorts and finding the entertainment a little "High School." We will defiantly be going back.

Went back

Well, came back because some friends were here. They didn't know we were coming. Turned out lots of fun. The pools have been cleaned up nicely. Food was pretty good for the price. Couldn't believe they had roast turkey one night! Delish! Drinks and atmosphere of the place is great. It's like being in two different resorts if you hang out at the adult pool then wander around the rest of the place. Lots of fun. Great service. The bartender Caterino is awesome

It's really about a 3/3.5 star

We are a semi retired couple with about 35 All Inclusives in the last 20 years. Some were 5 star and some were 3 or 4. We don't usually have any issues, and figure you get what you pay for, and this was no exception.Check in was a headache and very time consuming. Our travel agent had contacted the hotel ahead of time (as had we) due to my husband's illness. No matter, we were given a room in block 5 which made it impossible to stay at the resort. After walking over to block 5 and up 3 flights of stairs, the bellboy had made a mistake and we had to walk back down. Then over to another building and up 3 flights of stairs again.....only to find two double beds, already in the wrong building. Because my husband was now exhausted, I had to leave him in the room and search for our Apple rep in order to check out of the hotel and try to find other accommodations. The front desk INSISTED they did NOT have any other rooms, and that the hotel was full. Three members of the housekeeping/bellboy staff said they were no where near full and that was obvious. After arguing/waiting for Apple for an hour, all of a sudden they DID have our room in building 3 with an elevator and a King bed! It wasted alot of time and left us with a poor start to our vacation. The rooms are fine, but they have actual keys on a lanyard. That seems great, except we saw someone frantic because they had lost their key and the room number is stamped on it and they were very worried about having all of their things stolen. Maid service was excellent. No mini bar in room and the light bulbs way too dim to read at night at all. Also, when running the air at night, there is a light coming from the unit that serves as a night light that may be irritating to some. On two nights we had NO water at all in our bathroom sink, called down, no one came. One night we had NO hot water for showers.....geez. No wifi in rooms, although you can get it in the lobby area. The beds are VERY hard.....think cement with a sheet on top. We found an egg crate foam topper sitting in the hall, and used it the rest of the week, which did help.Buffets were average at best. One night of fresh fish, but even that was in a sauce. Everything was either in a sauce or glaze or soup dish or casserole. Think high school cafeteria. While there was variety, it was at the lower end of quality in our opinion.The staff was excellent every night every where we went!! The "specialty" restaurants we visited were Thai - pretty good, Italian - pretty good,and Jap Jap - lousy......cold food plopped on your plate. We went to the buffet after.The beach is nice, and you can walk for miles in either direction. The waves are reasonable to manage, and boogey boards were fun. Note to those of you that like water sports---you can only take the kayaks out and paddle between the bouys back and forth, and the Hobie can only be taken out with a "guide" who does all the steering of the boat and for 20 minutes! not really much fun there. We never visited any of the pools although they looked to be clean and there were many to choose from.The beach chair/palapa game is as bad as it gets here. We are early risers, and were out to the beach by 7:30 only to find the first row and most often the second row were"Reserved" by towels etc only to see no one use them til 11 or noon. I don't understand why management allows this. On 3 of our days, we were driven out by other beach goers who found it necessary to bring their own speakers and music to the beach. So much for reading or taking a relaxing nap. Again, security personnel on the beach just looked the other way. Just a note about the beach chairs.. these are the hardest most uncomfortable chairs we have ever encountered at any resort. We did get the inflatable air mattresses for our chairs or we would not have been able to e be comfortable. They sell them on site, but they are cheaper just outside the $7-8 The bar service was good and never really had to wait long. Again, not enough can be said about the staff. They are the very best thing going for this resort other than the location. It is very easy to walk to the grocery store or other places to eat. Check out was easy, and this is one of the few times, we were ready to leave. In fact, we would have preferred to leave early, but stuck it out the week. It wasn't horrible at all, just not one of our favorite places, and definitely not somewhere we would ever return to. Having said all of that, we encountered MANY MANY happy people, mostly Canadians that were very happy here, and some have been coming here annually for quite some time. I simply wrote about our experience, others surely feel differently.

  • Rusty1964 :
Bucerias revisited

We returned to the Royal Decameron after a fabulous experience two years ago. You know how sometimes you go back to a place you enjoyed and it's just not the same? Not to worry...the Decameron did not disappoint. Our three kids had a great time again, as did the two of us. Met some great people, played some v-ball and had a fabulous day trip up to san Sebastien, courtesy of our new friend Luis. The Decameron rooms are basic places to sleep. Nothing fancy there. The food is very good and the staff are simply exceptional.
