"Very impressed with our vacation at Royal Decameron. The resort was spotless, staff are continually maintaining the grounds. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. We found the staff to be very friendly. Buffets had lots to choose from. We enjoyed 3 a la carte restaurants, Italian, Thai and Rodizio steak house. All meals were delicious and service was excellent. Beach was very clean. Vendors approach you quite often but are not pushy when you say no. We will definitely return to Royal Decameron. A very relaxing vacation! " [...]Reviewer:

"The weather was great, the resort even better! Our room was very clean and being in the adult block was quite at nite. The food was spectacular with all the different a la cartes that were offered, the pools were clean the staff was friendly the beach was beautiful although the peddlers on the beach were a nuisance at times."

"A fine resort. Very clean, good rooms, good beds. Entertainment is fine for most people; lots of dancing, karaoke singing, casino nights, games, etc. For my part I would have preferred more musical presentations. The only time there was live Mexican (or any kind of) music was during their once-a-week fiesta. There I had to witness a live Mariachi band being used as background music for a silly contest that took place in front of the stage. The food is ok; not very flavourful, though. I had to ask for garlic at the pasta station! Seasoning is almost nonexistent. The staff, however, is outstanding. They go out of their way to please you and make your stay comfortable."

"This was my 4th visit to the Royal Decameron and, as before, I was very pleased with the accommodation, food, service and the property's cleanliness and state of repair. The one negative was Internet access - no access in the rooms and sometimes poor access in the lobby areas. The Air Transat flights were very good - new aircraft and entertainment system; on time departure/arrival; friendly service. The one negative was not being able to do an on line check in (apparently due to the system being down). " [...]Reviewer:

"First room had millions of tiny bugs in the washroom. Relocated promptly--the second room had the same--we used sunscreen to control the bugs. The food was the worst I've had in 8 trips to mexico. The hotel is 'run down' from when we visited in 2008. I will not return to this hotel--understanding the price I paid for the trip I still don't think this hotel offers good value. Air transat flight down was the best air craft I've ever flown on." [...]Reviewer:

"The entire trip was pain free! Easy and efficient check in at hotel and airports. Transfers were smooth. All hotel staff wonderful. The hotel is well maintained and very clean for the age of the resort. Location was great for exploring Bucerius or going into PV. We were put in the adults only building and pool area and it was lovely and quiet. I would certainly book again at this hotel and thru Escapes.ca. Great deal!" [...]Reviewer:

"The resort is very large and spread out, and because of that we felt there should have been some kind of an informational brochure and a map from the resort. We were still finding out about restaurants within the resort on the last day. We had no idea there was a gym. We did not know the show themes for the nightly shows. The resort has an awesome staff and friendly. Food is good. sometimes a challenge to find drinking water. Close to the town of Bucerias. Maybe a 20 minute walk to the action of the market and the town square. But lots of restaurants and shops on the side streets.

"We very much enjoyed our stay at the Royal Decameron. There were 6 people in our group ranging in age from 16-54 and we all had a great time. The food was great. The rooms are just okay. They are clean, however we did have a couple of cockroaches in our room over the 7 days but overall the rooms are clean. The beds are very comfortable. We got a very good package deal, and bang for our buck it couldn't be beat." [...]Reviewer:

"Staff were very friendly and helpful, for the most part, except for the waterfront staff who didn't seem too motivated. There were lots of other activities though (for both children and adults), mostly poolside. We saw plenty of local families, some with grandma and grandpas vacationing there. Food was very good, plentiful and lots of choices. The staff worked very hard to keep the place clean. It isn't the Hilton but it is very good value for a carefree vacation.
Good location if you like a less developed atmosphere than P. Vallarta. Beautiful bay. Snorkelling in nearby Mariatas was disappointing as the visibility was poor (maybe it depends on the season) and I didn't see very many fish species and could not even tell there was coral there. Be careful when you arrive at the airport. Time share sharks dress very deceptively like the tour companies' representative, offering you helpful things like maps, excursion information, and you are sucked into their web before you even realize they are not the people responsible for your transfer to your hotel.

"Great dollar value. We stayed in a beach front room but had a peek in the other buildings and the rooms all appear to be similar. The room was clean and everything worked ~ no one goes to Mexico to spend all of their time in their room. It is a good solid 4 star. The food was good but if I had it to do all over again I would have eaten off site a few more times for a nice cost effective treat. Miguel Angel's is a must visit for anyone who likes good food and drinks. Miguel is a proud Calgary Flames fan and welcomes all Canadians to his restaurant/bar which is located across the square from the Bucerias market. The margaritas are huge and delicious; the fresh seafood is plentiful! and to die for. We felt completely safe in Bucerias. Back to the Decameron Complex ~ the grounds are impeccably maintained and all of the staff are truly wonderful. They simply cannot do enough to accommodate you. This resort is definitely smaller than other Decameron resorts which we have travelled to but a great vacation none the less. We would definitely go back again on a last minute deal." [...]Reviewer:
