From start to finish our experience at El Dorado Casitas was really wonderful. We worked with Beach Bum Steve of Beach Bum Vacation and he handled everything for us, transfers, special requests…I will definitely use him for our next vacation. The resort was lovely and service was top notch. We had champagne on arrival in our room, lovely chocolates and flowers, turn down service every night, a signature fragrance of our choosing, and much more. Our personal concierge made our stay lovely by making our dinner reservations when we arrived so that we didn't have to think for the rest of our trip, to me that is a vacation! We had a couples massage by the beach which was one of the best I've ever had, and I have been to spas all over the world. Overall it was a perfect relaxing vacation which is just as I wanted, we did excursions to swim with the dolphins and zipline. We also went parasailing at the resort.
Overall it was a wonderful experience, the only thing that I will tell everyone to avoid is the sales presentation. It is presented as a 1.5 hour tour, it is a hard core sales presentation that takes up 3 hours, they do give you $100 in resort credit. But for me it was not worth the $ to give up any of my vacation time. It of course was my fault for agreeing to such a thing, so I can't really say is the resorts fault. I just wouldn't do that again.
