Thanks to Beach Bum Vacation, my friends and I had the best vacation. My wife and I celebrated our 15 year anniversary, and we had close friends celebrating birthdays. The resort was great, the food and the atmosphere were amazing. Lisa Zwissler is the greatest travel concierge anyone could have.

Thanks to Beach Bum Vacation, my friends and I had the time of our lives. From the oceanfront room, the staff, the food and the atmosphere were simply amazing. We went parasailing, jet skiing and ate up everything we could find. Lisa Zwissler is the greatest travel concierge anyone could have.

We had a brilliant time at the Casitas suites. The food was amazing, Gourmet inclusive really is gourmet and the waiting staff were first class. Having your own swim up room helped and the ability to have room service or go to a restaurant gave great flexibility and another option for you. The other staff at the hotel were the...

A week ago I returned home from the most amazing experience of my life. My wife and I chose to have our honeymoon at the Casitas and we chose right!

We spent 11 nights here and generally speaking it was very good indeed. The staff were in the main very polite, knowledgeable and friendly, the grounds were perfection and the rooms all very clean. The Restaurants ranged from good to very good, but cannot be described as Gourmet throughout. Our major issue was the number of very loud and rude...

Worried the first few days about being the only 3 single girls in the entire resort, but it wasn't an issue. Staff and environment kept us plenty entertained! We were treated so well, and didn't come across any of the issues in the bad reviews. So don't let them stop you from this resort. We felt like royalty from start...

Having just had two terrible holidays in Egypt & Dominican Republic, I actually read at least 250 pages of reviews on trip advisor ( admittedly - after booking el dorado royale ) The majority of the reviews were fantastic.

Excellent, could not fault it. Would go again. All the staff were so friendly and the food was good, plenty of choice of restaurants. Entertainment every night. The beaches were lovely and clean. There were lots of weddings taking place while we were there and would fully recommend the resort for this kind of holiday/celebration.
