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.

tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • Erin S : Toronto, Canada
excellent place to visit, great location!!

just returned from a week away at the Royal Decameron Complex, we travelled with another couple and (another couple surprised us while there). Stayed in Building 5, surrounded by an adults only pool and close building to get to everything else in the resort. We had one minor issue with our air conditioning going off in the middle of the night twice, I brought this to the front lobby's attention and they immediately sent a ticket to maintenance and it was fixed right away with no further issues. Bed was comfortable and large, and multiple pillows (not the best quality but it was just fine). No issues with water pressure hot water etc. No coffee machine in the room or fridge but there was always tea and coffee available down at the bar first thing in the morning, water bottles were refilled daily by the maid, and room was kept neat and tidy. yes you do have to pay to use the safe but this wasn't an issue, and the keys are physical keys on a lanyard. the resort felt HUGE when we first got there but once you get your bearings it is easy to figure out. also wifi is hit or miss depending on the time of day - that could be considered a minor downfall. the food was wonderful, we had Brazilian one night (meat smorgasbord) and it was great, (I don't remember much of this evening ;) but cannot complain at all about it. Jap Jap was great, I was so full from other meals and drinks that day so didn't get to experience a lot of Jap Jap but from what I did have it was great, Italian was also very good - I had tomato, mozz salad, onion soup and shrimp risotto, no complaints at all and wine was better at Italian. wine at the main bars was not good at all but lots of other options to choose from - funky monkey was delicious! buffets always had fresh fruit and veg, lots to choose from, and breakfast had made to order eggs, lots of bacon (needed to be grilled more on the grill as it was quite fatty). only complaint about food/drinks was that booze wasn't served first thing in the morning ie mimosas or in coffee etc but we asked one waiter one morning to get us some baileys and he produced. staff were incredibly attentive to our needs, very friendly and went out of their way to chat with you and cater to whatever you needed. shout out to Ruben at the building 5 bar who was very good to us on several occasions! we didn't get the chance to go to any of the evening shows so cannot comment about the quality etc. but I heard they were pretty good.taxi was about half hour/45 minutes into peurto Vallarta and we managed to get them for about 300 pesos after some back and forth, or bus ride but we didn't adventure this time on the local bus routes but I heard it was pretty easy to get into town via city bus.we booked taco tour via Vallarta Eats (will write a review on them) and it was excellent, I highly recommend!!! we often walked into bucerias, spent lots of time at the Drunken Duck (cheap beer and great bartenders) - one of them got talking with us then brought his dog NINA back for a visit! we got to dance on the bar and had a good time there after they played country music for us. yo yo mos across the road has pizza to die for (same owner as Drunk Duck). The Goalie (near the market) is a go to spot for sports on tv, and fat boys for some drinks on the beach. we also checked out another beach bar but can't remember the name of it which had two for one mimosas!!! check out sandrinas (greek restaurant) with an amazing back court yard (I will also write a review for them), they catered to our party of 6 with great service and we got talking to the waitress from Canada, all of us were very happy with our meals - we all got saganaki, I had souvlaki, salad and potatoes (excellent) and my husband had spaghetti, the others had chicken with brie, stuffed peppers, and souvlaki and feedback was amazing, for six large meals, three saganakis, a jug of sangria and some beers was 90$ American, such a neat place with a neat vibe out the back courtyard, beautiful artwork inside. oh and a free slice of cake as it was one of our anniversaries!!I would highly recommend this place, great location, easy walk into town for cheap beers, didn't feel like you were spending too much money off the resort, very safe and locals were great. met lots of retired people down there as it seems to be the place to go. beach was lovely, and the resort was well taken care of, cleaned every night and no issues at all with public bathrooms around the resort being a mess. no complaints at all except we wanted BOOZE first thing in the morning ;) mmm mimosas! will definitely recommend this resort and plan to go back. I MISS IT ALREADY!!!

Sun and warmth and yummy food!

My husband and I stayed here from March 4-11th, 2017. Everything was wonderful. Unfortunately I managed to step on a stingray, which I do not recommend. Ow! The lifeguard who helped me was incredible! His name starts with an E, but I think he goes by "Lelio"? He was professional and comforting , and made a traumatic event so much easier to bear. I am so moved by how incredibly kind he was and will be forever grateful. The doctor and nurse at the resort were wonderful as well. I felt like I was in very good hands. Even with an injured foot, I still had a great time, so that says a lot. The staff really make it. Will go back! ( and will try not to step on sea creatures next time!)

Awesome Mexico!

The Royal Decameron Complex in Bucerias was a great first experience with an all inclusive resort. The food was plentiful and excellent. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The complex is quite large, so if travelling for the first time, explore on line. Buildings 1 and 4 are very close to the buffet and activity pools so they tend to be subject to more noise. I was in building 5 backing on to pool 6 and it was great! Nice and quiet, close to the breakfast buffet and the adults only pool at building 5. The proximity to the main buffets and beach were great, being only a short walk to each. The staff were terrific and friendly, and willing to help when approached with questions. The a la carte restaurant booking required a line up at 7 a.m. and didn't open to take bookings until 8, but it was a fair process to permit access to the restaurants for a large number of people. My only complaint would be the $33 charge for the room safe for a week. It was too much and, in talking with other people, problematic. I'm glad I didn't waste the money, but would have liked to utilize a safe so I didn't have to keep everything with me all the time. I look forward to returning to this terrific destination!

  • Lenore N :
Great choice!

If you're looking for luxury, this is not your place. So stop complaining and look elsewhere. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here Apr 6-13th. The rooms were simple and clean. We stayed in block 4 and had a lovely view of the pools and the ocean. We didn't find it loud at all. We had a king bed which was super comfy! The rooms do not have a fridge & bring your own face cloths as they aren't provided. The food was great. Nothing overly fancy, but it was quite good. I would not advise drinking the wine in the dinner hall as it tastes like vinegar. The wine at the bars was much better. The staff were incredible. Such nice, happy people. The gym was satisfactory and has the basics for a simple workout. The grounds were well kept and they were constantly maintaining the buildings. We went into town most nights as we like to do that sort of thing. Many Canadians and very safe area. We were never concerned. The local restaurants were also pretty cheap. Visited the infamous Goalie bar and met its owner Miguel. Lots of fun. If you want awesome pizza, hit up Yo Yo Mo's. Excellent! Notes:Bring plenty of sunscreen because it isn't cheapDecent wine costs about the same as in CanadaPesos work well. No American neededYou will have to pay for your room safe. Do it!ATM's are throughout town but the fees are something like $8You have to get up super early to book the al la carte.. like 7am!Buy a floaty bed for your beach chairs. They're only like $9There are a lot of sales people on the beach. Be prepared. But they don't really bug you. They are more expensive as well.Once you get into downtown Bucerias, there are the markets and they all try and sell you something. But they're ok. Just trying to make a living. Overall, we really enjoyed our time there, the beach, ocean and our proximity to the local atmosphere. We will return!
