El Dorado is our go-to place to enjoy a real relaxing vacation. My family and I have been coming back here since the past 10 years. Suprisingly, every time we visit, there is always something new. The resort continues to improve and expand after each visit. One thing that hasn't changed over the years is their amazing food. Despite having...

We spent a week here on the advice of some friends, the place is clean and you can swim on the beach out the front of the restaurant. The sand is volcanic so it gets very warm during the day. Buying food and drinks from this resort is expensive and I would recommend staying for a few days only and...

And when I say...looks good..it pertains only to what the eyes can see...and everything stops there.. I hope the service was as good as the place is but it's not... For a place as expensive as El Dorado..you should get what you paid for... Not a tiny room with a tiny bathroom... Not a wrongfully experimented food..
