Adults-only playground on the Riviera Maya

The Lowdown

This 639-room resort is as vast and fun-filled as a theme park, only with one major element missing: there are no kids allowed. There are thirteen different swimming pools (complete with swim-up bars), a private, mile-long white sand beach, shows, dance clubs, and nine different restaurants including sushi (Kampai), Italian (D’Italia Casitas), plus a five-course gastronomic journey every evening at Fuentes Culinary Theater. And along with the fun come the games: beach volleyball, tennis, and aqua-aerobics. Just don’t tell the kids what they’re missing.

In the Area

The resort is set on the Caribbean sea amid 450 acres of tropical jungle, but it’s only fifteen minutes away from the shops and cafés of Calle Corazon and Quinta Avenida in Playa del Carmen. Golfers make the twenty minute trip to the Golf Club at Playacar and snorkelers head to Puerto Morelos to check out the Mesoamerican barrier reef. Of course, it wouldn’t be a trip to the Riviera Maya without a visit to a Mayan archaeological site; guests choose from a half day jaunt to ruins of Tulum or a full day trip to Chichén Itzá.

Best All Inclusive Ever
Reviewed 11 hours ago

Beautiful! Just Beautiful! I have been to many all inclusive resorts, and this one is by far tops. The food and service was remarkable. Jojo’s burgers were one of the best burgers I ever ate. There was not one meal that wasn’t superb! I was worried about traveling to an all inclusive after the news in Punta Cana, but can honestly say...I would not be hesitant to visit here again. I felt so safe, and the staff was so pleasant and eager to meet our needs. This vacation and resort exceeded my expectations! #eldoradocasitasroyale #eldoradocasitas #rivieramaya

Wonderful facilities, staff is friendly and efficient, great food and drinks. Lots of activities for all types of people. Relaxing options and more upbeat options as well. Resort is very spacious and not loud or crowded.

Wedding Experience at El Dorado Royale
Reviewed 14 hours ago

The whole staff was very accommodating and friendly the whole trip. A very clean and nice resort. My husband and I had our wedding there and the wedding staff met every expectation that we had for our big day, from the ceremony to the reception dinner, which I think had the best food all week (all the food was good everywhere)! At first we were in a regular room when we paid for a "honeymoon suite," but once we communicated our disappointment of a regular room that we paid extra for the "honeymoon suite," it was fixed rather quickly. Everyone that came to the resort for the wedding had a great time and plenty of activities for everyone!

If you are looking for a stress free wedding, this is the place to go!

Best vacation!

This is our second year in a row here! We love it so much and couldn’t wait to get back. Our butler Candido aka candy man has been wonderful! I needed more water for the room and he brought a case! I wanted champagne and he came in and made me a mimosa while I ate breakfast. He is wonderful! Our poolside waiter and waitress have been equally as amazing! Rosaria and Moises never let our drinks run out and Moises even brought us caprese sandwhiches while we were swimming. The service is why we will continue to return. We are spoiled rotten here!

Excellent Staff

We are here on vacation and are having an excellent stay. This is our second stay at El Dorado and I can say the staff is amazing, especially Mr. Candido. He has been absolutely the best!!! Goes out of his way to make sure we have everything we need. With service like this, you truly want for nothing here. Thank you so much for such an amazing experience.
