Beach Condition of El Dorado Royale

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I am considering the El Dorado Royale, any of you experienced ladies our there know what the beach condition is like?

 

I would like my ceremony on the beach and usually spend most my time beaching when on these types of vacations....

 

 

THANKS!

I would like some honest feedback on this too. I've heard mixed reviews on this from people. I know that it's definitely not the ideal "white sand, swim beach" that we're used to at some of the other hotels we've stayed at in Cancun, and I'm well aware that there are plenty of "whales" in the water to break up the waves. However, my FI is concerned that our guests who are looking forward to lounging on the beach will be disappointed with the quality at EDR.

 

Any thoughts?? Surely with a resort that covers nearly a mile of beach, there has to be parts of it that range from decent to pretty good.

It's definitely not the blue water of cancun, but it's still nice. It is a great resort, lots of ceremony locations and lots to do. I don't think your guests will be disappointed by the beach. Yes, they do have the sand bags in the water, but you can still go in the water, you can still lay on the sand, and there are still lots of water activities that people can participate in.

 

I'm sure if you do a beach ceremony that your photographer can angle the pictures to avoid getting the sand bags in your shots.

When we were there in October of last year, I too was surprised by the sand bags, but they really only affect part of the beach. There are several areas, especially down by the casitas, that have few or none at all. And yes you can get in the water and still have a good time. I saw several people actually snorkeling around the bags, and they did not look too bothered. Also a lot people would just sit on the beach in the water.

 

If you are looking for an area that will not have sandbags in your pictures, then choose Gazebo 55 or the Presidential Gazebo. There is also one down by the Casitas, but I can't remember the name.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
