So when you vacation at their place and space, you can expect the royal, magical treatment.
All-Inclusive Suites That Are Primped with Every Luxury for Every Situation
El Dorado Royale offers its guests three types of luxury accommodations. The Connoisseur two bedroom suite is perfect for an all-adult family vacation, as it can fit up to six adults. It also comes with a trip to the local winery, or an exclusive dinner served in the suite’s spacious living quarters. The opulent beachfront honeymoon suite stays true to its name and gives you a once-in-a-lifetime Mexican honeymoon experience.
Here, the newly married couple are literally treated like a king and queen as they enjoy their exclusive beach, served by their very own pool butler! The Junior suite is no less appealing, as it comes with a luxurious double bed and easy access to an indoor jacuzzi.

A Gratifying Culinary Vacation
We are not kidding you when we say a large number of El Dorado Royale’s guests come just for the gamut of exotic culinary experiences on offer. The sensational Fuentes-Culinary Theatre is utterly unique and specially designed to fulfill all five senses. For instance, imagine watching your favorite cooking show in a grand theater atmosphere, featuring the top chefs and sommeliers of the land cooking up a storm with local favorites, even as you enjoy it all LIVE while you sip on a glass of champagne.
And the pièce de résistance happens when you get to taste all that delicious food! Yes, it’s theater, all its very culinary best!
There are also more than nine bars and restaurants serving international cuisines from Mexican to Italian to American, and even health food, so you never have to repeat a culinary experience during your entire vacation. And if these are not enough, you can additionally feast through the Rivera Maya Food Tours or enjoy local cuisine at the Unico Beach club. Choices, anyone?
What Are Some Fun Things to Do in the Area?
As we mentioned earlier, El Dorado Royale is every honeymooner’s delight. Also an adventurer’s delight. And a foodie’s delight: should we simply say it is every adult-on-vacation’s delight? Here is just a peek into the things you can do on your holiday, El Dorado Royale style. (All activities below are outside the resort grounds and paid for by guests.)
Guests can enjoy (paid) boat tours and related water sports just a short distance from the resort at Playa del Carmen. There is also scuba diving and snorkeling with whale sharks at Buceo Xtabay. If you prefer something more colorful than whales, there are diving and snorkeling activities at Puerto Morelos and Tulaka Diving that allow you to come close to more playful water animals (including dolphins). The National Reef Park is also of special interest and is a short way from the resort. For beach bums, the Ojo de Agua beach is just your spot.
Are zip lines and cenote swimming more your style? Then the “Extreme Adventure” eco park is right up your alley. This park also comes with six unique zip lines and three thematic bridges that give you the whole Mayan-adventure experience. And if you are looking for something more plain (and tame), there is Boca Del Puma, an ecological reserve, and ATV, a recreational eco-park, that also provide adventure sport activities.
When in Mexico, be a… Mayan! El Dorado Royale guests have a unique possibility of exploring two different facets of the sacred Mayan culture. The Layla Guesthouse is run by a Mayan family who love to serve their guests with a traditional Yucatecan lunch, with all the trappings. Despite their (heavy) use of chili, the adventure does not end there, as the nearby Mayan cave just has to be explored. Locals claim that cave to be more than a million years old!). Finally, you can cool of all that rigorous activity with a cooling snorkel/swim. Now that is bliss.
The Mexicans sure do love their theater experiences. If the Fuentes-Culinary Theatre wasn’t wondrous enough, there’s also Cirque du Soleil – also a mixed culinary theater experience – which captures the age-old story of an alchemist and his precocious granddaughter. Through this story, the guests are introduced to several local experiences (including the spicy Mexican food), even as they get familiar with Mexico’s sacred history.
As you can see, El Dorado Royale is not a luxury resort. Or an adventure resort. Or a foodie’s heaven. Or a romantic Utopia to kindle the romantic excitement once again. It is a superlative experience where every moment offers diverse and unique possibilities to its elite guests. No matter your type, El Dorado Royale is ready for you. Are you ready?
