My wife and I recently spent 10 days at the El Dorado Royale, and I can honestly say that we didn't want to come home. We stayed in in the 5200 block of room, which is as far away as you can get, so be prepare to do some walking. We had a swim-up suite with access to the new quieter pool as well as the Fuentes pool. Maggie and Julio at the new Sensi Mar pool were absolutely amazing. They made us feel welcome every morning and provided excellent service. We did have to get up early to reseverve the cabana beds, but it was well worth it. I have seen in other reviews that other guests had trouble with wait times for food. That was not our experience. We were able to make reservations for Santa Fe and Las Fuentes with out a problem. The longest wait we had for the other restaurants was maybe 25-30 minutes. We also had a wonderful candle light dinner on the beach for our anniversary. I highly recommend upgrading to the lobster menu.
This resort is very large so be prepared to do a lot of walking. The paths are not very well lit, so you have to know where you are going in the evenings.
All in all, this was an awesome vacation and we hope to return again!
