Big luxury rooms, with an over-sized Jacuzzi tub in each room ~ gorgeous bathroom area with large indoor + outdoor shower and lots of closet space. The "mini" bar consists of 4 full-sized bottles (whatever you want), plus bottles of wine and champagne. Customize the mini-fridge with whatever cans/bottles you want (plus chips & candy bars) ~ and a coffee bar in-room.... If that's not enough, you can order room service 24/7!
Personal concierge and pool butler to get whatever you possibly need, plus attentive bartenders in the swim-up bars. There's even a pillow menu and choice of aromatherapy scents for nightly turn-down service!
About 14 restaurants to choose from, and many bars (remember, this is all-inclusive too!) .... movie rentals (free) to watch in your room ~ plus any outdoor activity that you could possibly want, and a nightclub on site too. Biking, snorkeling, rifle range, cigar rolling, Tequila tasting, horseback riding, dance & cooking classes, greenhouse tour and more are on-site ~ Swim with Dolphins, deep sea fishing, scuba diving, moonlight dinner cruise, zip-line, parasailing and much more can be booked on site too.
The resort is about 30 miles south of Cancun (just north of Playa del Carmen), and completely self-contained (they have their own water infiltration plant and huge greenhouse to grow all the veggies). The EL DORADO ROYALE area has 3-story buildings with swim-up rooms on the bottom floor (I highly recommend those, if you choose Royale). The El Dorado Royale area is less expensive than the El Dorado Royale Casitas and the crowd tends to be a little younger (20s-30s). ... We now go to El Dorado Royale CASITAS, which are grouped sections of about 38 casitas each. There's a common pool for each casitas area, with a swim-up bar and a small outdoor restaurant for lunch. You definitely want the higher 30, 31 or 32 areas, with the ultimate pampering and either an infinity pool or swim-up pool for each suite.
The rates vary a great deal, depending on the season or whether there's a sale going on. "Members" get a better rate.... but if you tell them that CINDY HANDY referred you, then you will get our RUBY member rates & all the perks (win-win situation to do that since you'll get more for your money, and they will give me a credit towards our next trip), including 20-minute couples massage and Candlelight Dinner on the Beach.
WEDDING CHAPEL on-site, but also beach weddings too ~ or just RENEW your VOWS there! .... Be sure to tell them if you're celebrating an anniversary or birthday within 30 days of your visit for even more benefits!
Search: EXOTIC TRAVELERS ~or~ KARISMA HOTELS ~or~ EL DORADO ROYALE (and Casitas). There's a button here for the link to the members page, so you can see the difference in rates for members and regular guests. And, be sure to keep checking the rates as they will vary as much as $300/night during the year! ****** NOTE: If you have kids, there are also family vacations at other Exotic locales. The link to El Dorado Royale should also allow you to view any of the other locations ~ and my RUBY membership is applicable to any and all Exotic locations.
