Hubby and I went to El Dorado Seaside to celebrate our anniversary. It is a beautiful resort and we can’t say enough good things about our vacation. We stayed the week of Jan 13 to 21st in a swim-up room in block 36. We are pool-lounging folk so having the swim up room was well worth it.
The rooms are nice and clean. The Jacuzzi tub is fantastic! Don’t bother bringing bath salts because there is lovely foam bath waiting for you in your room. The bathrooms are great with a large walk-in shower, separate toilet, and double sinks. We didn’t have any of the toilet or water temperature problems mentioned in previous posts.
Food and drinks are delicious and plentiful. If you like frozen drinks try the El Dorado Special, it is not on the drink menus but it is delicious! Room service is fantastic and quick. We ordered room service a few times and waited less than 20 minutes each time before the food arrived.
The resort itself is beautifully maintained and there was always staff grooming the gardens and cleaning up. The beach is great. We had no problem walking on the sand. The kayaks are a blast especially on days where the waves are big.
Personal concierges. Do make a point of going to visit them. They have an unlimited supply of towels and helpful information for traveling around the resort.
We did not hear about any time share sales, nor were we solicited to attend a time share meeting.
The reason we give this resort only 4 instead of 5 stars is that there is a bit of room for improvement. We did not receive the anniversary package despite requesting it. Our travel agent made sure the resort was aware and our concierge was aware of it. This obviously did not make or break the vacation, but it was an advertized perk and we did not receive it. The BIG reason we give this resort 4 instead of 5 stars is that our camera was stolen out of our room the first time we left our room. We locked everything important (wallets, $$, travel documents) in our safe as soon as we were given our room, but we were too tired to unpack before going out for dinner. When we returned our camera, which was deep inside one of our bags, was missing. I didn’t even think to lock it up since it wasn’t that nice of a camera (3 year old digital camera) but it was much better than the Kodak disposable I paid $30us for in the gift shop. So make sure you not only lock up your valuables, but lock up crappy cameras too!
Despite having our camera stolen, it was a fantastic vacation. We will definitely be back. I would recommend this resort to anyone looking for a relaxing, romantic vacation.
