"Great all-inclusive option for Cabo"
Extremely friendly staff, immaculate grounds, great pool options, and an amazing bargain. Royal D is new, so book it now before the prices catch up with the other all-inclusives. 20-minute cab to Cabo San Lucas, 5 minute cab to San Jose del Cabo....had fun in both towns when we needed some fresh scenery after a few days at the resort.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"All Inclusive Deal"
Happily surprise. Best All-inclusive Deal in San Jose del Cabo and Los Cabos area. We were there for a wedding and this hotel was close by to the wedding reception. We liked the room, the hotel i general the food, the service...my only complaint is that the pool closes at 8 PM, which is way too early, especially during the summer where it gets dark […] a little later than that, and the music in the pool area is terrible, very oldies but not goodies...e erything else was good. If you want better quality of food and drinks and a fancier resort, you are going to have to pay far more, Los Cabos is the most expensive area in all latin america, so it is great to find a good deal.

Of course we will be back, I had an incredible experience at the Royal Decameron, staff went above and beyond to make our stay an unforgettable one, specially Cirille the manager, Roman at the front desk and Benito at the restaurant. My husband was very happy with the service and we are making plans to come back next year. :-)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Good for All Inclusive hotel. Food needs to be little bit more tastier!! If your staying here and are planning to travel to Cabo San Lucas downtown area please note there $40 can rode each way!! It's pretty far from hotel. Recommend go with lots of people so you can split and pay for cab or just go there once and take care of everything in that one […] visit.

"The perfect place to rest and relax"
We stayed at the Royal Decameron for 4 days in May and it was perfect for some badly needed rest and relax. There were not too many people at the hotel and even less at the beach, so it almost felt like a private beach. The pool area was awesome, the service was always friendly and we enjoyed great events. It was very easy to get to San Jose and to […] San Lucas by bus and we also went to the shopping mall across the street, very convenient! Overall a great location and a great vacation!

This place is the best for couples or/and entire families. We have no complaints, our only complaint is that we were there for only for 4 nights and wish we booked for at least 6. Highly recommended!! We will return!:-)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Beautiful beach front property with a great pool. Too small to be an all inclusive, only 1 restaurant with the same menu each night. The buffet was excellent for breakfast, but all other meals lacked variety. The buffet played the same music track of 3-4 songs over and over for all 3 meals. Our first room was on the same side as the Hyatt next door. […] Very noisy at a very early hour each morning. After begging to be moved, we were finally accommodated on the 3 rd night. The other side was very quite and much better. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very friendly, great for the price!"
We had an amazing experience. The staff was awesome! The drinks were great, they weren't stingy with their liquor! The food was ok, not the best but it was good. Jesus, the manager is just great! Our vacation was so peaceful. If you want to visit San Lucas you can take the bus for $3. Just know that you cannot swim in the beaches of San Jose, you would […] have to go to San Lucas for that. Our stay was great, can't say enough about this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel at an unbelievable price!!"
We have an incredible stay. My girlfriends and I do an annual girls' weekend and we are going to be hard-pressed to NOT come back to Royal Decameron. You never know what you are going to get with 'all-inclusive' hotels…sometimes they skimp on the quality of food or liquors- soooo not the case here!! I was expecting the food, accommodations and service […] to be okay for the price that we paid, but we were pleasantly surprised with what we got. The hotel itself was clean and well-maintained. The staff were all very helpful and always willing to go out of their way to help with anything we needed. The food was, by far, the best surprise. Everything was delicious. The buffet was full of fresh fruit and other delicious options. The grill at the pool had the best fish tostadas I have ever had - I ate them everyday for lunch! For dinner, the grill turns into a fine dining restaurant and it truly was delicious. The night scene at the hotel was not anything incredible but unless you are looking for wild nights - it does just fine. As much as I would like to experience other hotels in Cabo - I don't think we need to go anywhere else. We loved it here! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Reasonably priced hotel for a nice beach getaway"
It is my understanding that the Royal Decameron used to be an adults only nudist hotel. They are working to change this image and make it a more family friendly place. While I can appreciate them providing entertainment throughout the day, it just wasn't what I was after for this trip. The pool area tended to be a little 'spring break-ish', but not […] raunchy or offensive. Just noisy. However, the entertainment staff was amazing, and the activities were appropriate for all ages. I found some bit of quiet escape at the beach, where the crashing waves drowned out much of the thumping techno music during the day. This of course is a personal preference and if your preference is non stop action then the Decameron is your place! I got used to the vendors hanging around the beach, at first they felt overwhelming, but by the second day I found that I actually really enjoyed their presence and they are not pushy at all and extremely good natured if you tell them no thank you. In fact, the first day I told many of them "maybe tomorrow' and they remembered that and would repeat it to me but in a very sweet way. I really cannot express how much I love the people of Mexico. So friendly, polite and easy going. The buffet area DESPERATELY needs better music. It is kind of like Musak and there is one song in particular that drove us insane. I know that seems trivial but for the sanity of the servers too I hope they change this soon. Just some straight up Mexican music would be awesome. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We just got back from our stay at the RDC. The staff were always willing to help us and always had a smile on their faces! We would especially like to mention Antonio the bartender, all the entertainment staff, Danny, Jenny, Alberto, Sandie and Perla. They are always having fun and are great at their job. Also in the buffet Tania, Xochi and Ramiro were […] always on top of it! Both of the bellboys that were working while we were there were awesome! Sorry can't think of their names. The rooms were always cleaned to perfection! We were lucky enough to get a super king bed and it was pretty comfortable. The bathroom was also very clean with a rain type shower head which was nice. The grounds were beautiful and the pools were always clean. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect getaway resort!"
I loved almost everything about my stay at this resort! The food was above my expectations! The buffet was delicious and the Luna restaraunt was perfection! Our room was beautiful. They even offered s room with an ocean view when we checked in at no extra charge! The rooms were very clean. The one and ONLY complaint I have is the mattress was very hard […] and uncomfortable. But I would stay there again in a heartbeat. The pools and grounds were immaculate. They offered fun activities throughout the day. The staff was very friendly and helpful too! Oh, one other downside, wifi is very slow! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Smaller resort right by beach"
Good pools, never crowded and right by beach. Decent food and good entertainment/activities.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very poor compared to other All Inclusive resorts."
The plus side. It is small and in a good location. Also I found some of the waiters in the restaurant to be very friendly and attentive. The only other positive it is that it was relatively cheap. But, It seems to prove out again, you get what you pay for. We were there 7 days. The restaurant to order from a menu was only open 3 nights. It is an outdoor […] restaurant and it has a very limited menu. The food at the buffet was okay. We never went hungry but over all it was a big step down from other resorts we have stayed at. The minibar is a joke. We had to purchase water, coffee and snacks at a local store. Never had to do that before at an all inclusive. The last straw for me on this place was the noise level at night. Even after midnight they allowed a handful of guest at the outdoor bar to yell loud enough to wake the dead. I don't know what they were doing but you would have thought they were at the super bowl. After being woken up several times I went to the front desk and asked if they could at least ask them to hold it down. They said, "No, these people are on vacation". I didn't want to go home from vacation tired from not getting any sleep, but that's the way it was. It was clear that this resort wants to appeal to people who like to party all night. Not a place for families or people who want to get rested on vacation. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Small resort, feels empty"
The resort was fine for the one night that we stayed there, but I prefer the bigger resorts in Cabo. My biggest complaint was that the place felt empty - not much of a party going on. The best thing was the Mexican pizza they had at the poolside restaurant. Yum!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was friendly but the selection of all icnclusive was very limited and poor quality of product like: Gallo wine or Taca beer. The food was limited and had nothing special to offer. Very loud evening activities and the corridor was always very loud. I woke up every times that someone passed by. I will try something different next time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great resort fun activities"
Beautiful location, very relaxed but fun atmosphere. Just a 20 min taxi ride to Cabo San Lucas. Great activities and delicious food. The staff was charming, funny, helpful, loving and just flat out amazing!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Stay next door at Hyatt Ziva"
Food - mediocre at best, you'd probably be able to find the breakfast foods at a continental breakfast Room - it was clean, the bathroom is terrible - toilet made random noises overnight (sounded like it was being plunged). The sink didn't run water properly, splashed all over the place. You also have to pay 40-50 pesos a day to use the room safe. Staff […] - not very attentive, they only help when you ask. Our room's mini bar was half empty when we checked in and wasn't ever refilled (we only asked for water). Ended up having to go to the front desk to get water. We stayed here for one night and then moved over next door to Hyatt Ziva for three nights. It's literally a 30 second walk away. The difference between the two is night and day. Save yourself the trouble and go to Ziva. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to beach, seemed a little run down"
close to beach, but not near down town Cabo. We knew that so it wasnt a problem. The rooms seam outdated and need work. Everywhere I looked there was something broken etc. Their infinity pool was broken. Staff was awesome....cant complain about them Food was mediocre, and they seamed to recycle dinner into their breakfasts. Not horrible..... but I never […] cleaned my plate.

"Amazing Vacation at the Decameron"
My 82 yo father took me on a vacation and we opted for the Decameron, never having booked an all-inclusive before. We had an amazing vacation. The pool was wonderful, access to the beach amazing, and the facilities were beautiful. The service was spot on and the food was all good. The spa facilities were top-notch. The Luna restaurant offered a more […] sophisticated fare than the buffet, and given it was poolside, had an impressive view of beach too. Most everything was very tasty with fresh fruits available. Although the alcohol was not top shelf, the drinks were good - especially the strawberry and mango dacquiries. The town of San Jose is very authentic, safe, and pleasant to walk around and do some shopping. We arrived too late to do whale watching, but the City Tour, going to a glass blowing factory, doing tequila tasting with lunch in San Jose was great and seeing the Arch and where the Pacific meets the Sea of Cortez was the highlight of our stay.

"Nice smaller resort"
This is a nice, clean, well maintained Resort...at around 150 rooms, and located next door to the Hyatt Ziva in San Jose del Cabo directly across from the Mega store. The shining star here is the Staff...Friendly and warm...quick with a smile...it did not take long for them to feel as though they were part of our family. I would look forward to seeing […] them again. The Resort is on the Beach, a stretch of sand that goes on for miles, and although they do not recommend swimming in the Sea, as there are no lifeguards, and the water can get quite rough, with all of the currents and undertow. You can get your feet wet, you may even do a little more if you desire. There are also 4 pools...that never felt crowded...with plenty of lounge chairs...the only thing that could be improved, would be more shade options...The entertainment staff was amazing. The two Bands that performed were very talented and played an excellent selection of Rock and Roll favorites. Food and drink were tasty and plentiful...an option for the after hours crowd would be nice. All in all a great experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel and wonderful vacation!"
Great time - staff was very friendly and food was excellent, no major complaints and we will go again! Was such a nie change from the "BIG" resorts as it is a smaller facility which made it more personal and didn't have to fight crowds for pool or beach chairs, spots at the bar, etc. Staff is very friendly and will go extra mile for you. We also had […] a great time with Zip Lining Adventure (Cabo Expeditions) and Snorkeling tour (Ranchos) and would highly recommend both! We will return to Royal Decameron again.

"Nice hotel, decent food, right on the beach!"
My friend and I are teachers, and we were on spring break. Last year, we stayed in the Cabo side, and we much preferred this part! The hotel was cute and had constant entertainment - circus show at night, bands, beach volleyball. We preferred just to sit on the beach and relax. They had a nice pool, adult deck, and chairs on the beach. The drinks were […] delicious and varied, and overall the staff was extremely friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable and had a deck. The food was decent - not the best quality, but overall okay. They had themed nights, such as Italian or Mexican. The restaurant by the beach serves snack food during the day, but make a reservation at night! They serve delicious, higher quality food than the buffet! Overall, a wonderful and relaxing stay.

"Will get better over time."
This hotel is a very nice small facility. It is in a U-shape, open at the pool/beach end. Nightly entertainment takes place at the closed end, and the shape acts as an amphitheatre, so every room gets a full impact from the entertainment noise, whether you like it or not. Even conversations at the entertainment bar can be heard in the rooms furthest […] from the bar, which ours was. Not a deal killer, but be aware if you retire early. Beverages were great, everything offered, nice selection of alcohol, and as strong as you want. If you are not happy, just let them know. Food was only fair, and I think this is where they will improve over time. Buffet was very repetitious, and some items - anything beef, for example - was subpar. Not a lot of imagination in the offerings, and desserts were just plain awful. The ala carte restaurant had two menues that rotate, and each had a couple of decent offerings, but again the steak was so tough I had to return it for a salmon filet, which was excellent. They do solicit feedback, and we have been to other, better Royal Decamerons, so I think this is an area where they will improve. The staff is great, as in most of Mexico. Give them a modest tip now and then and they will take great care of you. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Great location right on the beach. Food was fine and everyone was friendly. The only thing that would keep me from going back was room noise. Could hear everything in hall like there in no door.

The hotel was new, clean, and comfortable. The staff was polite, attentive, and efficient. The food was good, fresh, and had a wide variety of options.

"Great smaller all inclusive, would go back!"
This hotel was wonderful. It was small enough that there were not thousands of people everywhere and we were never fighting for chairs or pool space or lining up to get drinks, but large enough that there were activities going on and people to talk to. There were only 2 food options...a buffet and a restaurant. It was perfect for 5-6 days but any longer […] and I would have wanted more resturant options. It was a beautiful facility with clean rooms and friendly staff. The beach was fun with great body boarding waves. The pools were clean and pretty. Everything was very nice. The weather was also awesome I have no real complaints. I would definitely go back again and would recommend it to a friend. San Jose del cabo was definitely more relaxing a low key compared to Los cabos. I would rather stay in San Jose del cabo than Los cabos for a more relaxing calm trip. We went to Los cabos 1 day and it was busy loud and crowded. Since Royal Decameron was new and just opened everything us really new and clean and pretty. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Exceptional quality for the price!"
This was the first vacation I took with my girlfriend. We choose this hotel because it was cheaper than most but still all inclusive. We arrived at 1:30 but couldn't go in to our rooms until 3, which clearly said on our reservation, we were able to check in, get our all inclusive tag, and one of the staff members took our luggage while we enjoyed the […] all inclusive drinks and food until we waited for 3. Everything started on the right foot. Once we checked in our room we changed and headed to the pool where I spent all of my time mostly in the swim up bar. Overall this place was great, if you wanted to go to the beach all you had to do was walk out of the pool and you hit the beach already. I would recommend this place to everyone.

"Nice resort for relaxation"
I stayed here march 15-19 for my college spring break. The resort was really nice, especially the pool/beach area. All of the staff members were nice and helpful.

"Quiet hotel on beautiful beach"
We stayed at the Royal Decameroj for five nights and, overall, are satisfied with our experience. The rooms were very clean and quiet (we were in 205), the beach was expansive, and the pool seating readily available at all times of day. The staff was friendly and accommodating, with the exception of one of the bartenders at the pool. The food was good, […] not great, and the buffet line was clean and well maintained. Overall, a good value and a beautiful location. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"What they don't tell you ahead of time!"
As frequent travelers to Mexico we were very disappointed with many aspects of the resort. First, it's a non-swim beach - all the time, and which means there are no near-by beach excursions at all. Then you'll want to make sure to buy your own bottled water from the market across the street because they only provide one bottle per day per guest, and […] even then I had to call the desk to request it twice. They don't offer bottled water at the pool either, just by the glass. There is no "service" around the pool or when on the (tiny little area of assigned beach) no waiters what-so-ever. While they can collect glasses, they said they aren't allowed to deliver drinks. The wi-fi, when it works, is charged per day - per DEVICE, and they charge per day for use of the in-room SAFE! Make sure you take some snacks, because if you fail to make your dinner reservations by 11:00 a.m. for the current evening you'll be taking a taxi to find a meal. Something we found more than a little awkward was that bathroom door was clear glass, and doubled as the shower door when flipped the other direction... And lastly (and most troubling) was that EACH time you paid for something (at the gift shop, spa, front desk for wi-fi or your safe) they made and kept a copy of your passport. EACH TIME! Can you say identity theft? One time I could tolerate, but leaving there knowing there were 5 copies of my passport floating around was very uncomfortable! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Nice smaller resort with friendly staff, excellent service, and plenty of chair room at three pools. Two swim up bars and two other bars very accommodating. Great local people and atmosphere.

"Fun hotel, for a few days..."
Overall I enjoyed my 5-night experience at the hotel. The grounds were beautiful, some of the best I've seen and the beach was incredible despite the fact that they advise you not to swim due to the undertow. It's your typical all-inclusive where you're excited for the first few days and then it becomes Groundhog's Day with the food and drinks. The […] food was better quality than most of the all-inclusives I've been to, but the options were limited. Outside of the buffet, there was only one option to dine at for both lunch and dinner. Lunch was decent, dinner was horrible. Drinks are your typical bottom-shelf booze so I stuck to beer most of the time. The staff were all great, welcoming, funny and by the end of the trip you had built relationships with them. The one strange thing was there was never any staff to come around the pool to get your drink order. You had to go to the swim-up bar or into the restaurant. They wouldn't let you take food out of the restaurant or the buffet so you weren't able to eat by the pool. Finally, one thing to point out is that there aren't many kids/families here which was great! We intentionally picked this location for that reason. I understand that this place has just come under new mgmt. so I have no doubts that they are continuing to improve each and every day. I'd recommend staying for a few days, and then mixing up the scenery or going off-site for the remainder of your meals. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Overall good value"
We enjoyed our stay overall. Clean and comfortable rooms. Average food, good service, but poor variety and supply of liquor. Wine only served at buffet and al la carte and very low quality. Entertainment, restaurant, and cleaning staff great. Bartenders generally had poor attitudes like nothing I have ever experienced.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A cozy, relaxing resort"
We had a great time at the Royal Decameron for a long weekend getaway. After reading some reviews I was nervous about what room choice we would get, but it was perfect for us. They had our King room waiting and it was on the third floor. Very private and a great view of the ocean. I could see how some rooms closer to the lobby might be loud, but we […] had a great experience. The room was updated and clean and really a very good value. They have also added coffee to the rooms which was nice. Cruz was a great help showing us around the resort. The pools were beautiful and not too crowded. This was probably my favorite part of the Royal Decameron. We were never stressed about finding a spot by the pool or chairs. The food was OK and we ventured into San Jose a few times for variety, but it was nice to have some food/drink included. The swim up bars were fun, but I agree with other post-ers that you should request a specific drink and know how to make it. But I won't complain about swimming around with a strawberry dacquiri! All in all it was a wonderful experience and for the price I would absolutely return. The staff was amazing and really seem to care for the resort. Thanks Royal Decameron!
