One of my favourite places on this planet. The staff are amazing! Friendly, the majority speak some English and are very helpful. The food is delicious and varied. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are exceptionally clean. This is a wonderful resort to relax and that is what a vacation is supposed to be about.

Cannot explain how wonderful it feels when staying here. The rooms and common areas are continuously cleaned. We wanted to try the street food in Burcerias but found the food was a real treat and did not want to miss a meal. Thank you to all the workers who get paid so little for doing such a great job. We are looking forward to our next stay at the Royal Decameron

This is my first time writing a review ever lol. I think Decameron is good for what the price is beautiful beach and views from the room. Drinks any time of the day easy access with many bars around you. The pools are packed but you have so many too choose from it’s not a big deal. The food is terrible lol I’m going to be honest but outside of the resort it’s easy to get a meal and it’s not too expensive. Housekeeping was great they did an exceptional job cleaning the rooms everyday even if you were in the room they would come back later to clean it . I was in block 4 and like I said the views were amazing!!! Would definitely come back just hope the food can be updated haha. Also jasmine at the lobby was wonderful!

My wife and I have continued to come back to this resort year after year 23 years in fact, and yes we have have been on other vacation but always show back at the Royal Decameron in February every year, there are employees still there from when we started coming had the same maid for 15 years,bartender,dancers even the gardener over the number of years we have become friends with many of the employees Abel Janet,Ricardo,Marta and many more.If you are looking for a Five Star resort the Decameron is not for you, but if you are looking for a clean sandy beach and very friendly people and a spotless facility a tidy room to stay in and sleep the Decameron is who I have recommended to my many friends who have been there and we still keep in contact after all these years from all over the world. With COVID -19 playing havoc on the world we are still hoping to make year 24 in the future,had to make my points after 23 years Decameron and staff deserve it.

We have been to many places in this world, and we can honestly say that this was the worst place we have ever stayed. The room has obviously not been updated in at least 20 years. Old furniture with drawers that fall down when opened, two electric outlets, each behind a nightstand. We took "military showers" because there was no hot water. We were not informed that sit-down, a la carte restaurants are only open three days per week. That means, had we stayed at the resort to eat, the food would not have been hot. The restaurants were adequate. Breakfast and lunch buffets were acceptable with good variety. We had to chase down the room attendant one day because she had left only two towels. The toilet, shower and sliding door all leaked. The latter to the extent that when it rained (and this the rainy season) the floor had standing water two feet into the room. The family pools had babies without diapers, and we never saw a child leave the water to go potty. We went to the adult pool which was lovely. The bell hop staff and the waiters were very friendly and mannerly. The other staff did not seem to care. The grounds are well kept. The location is at the end of town, so if you are not a good walker, you’ll need to get a taxi to get to center of town. We will never stay here again. Of course, we were there to finalize our condo purchase up the street.
