ElDorado Royale versus Seaside?!?!

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I was about 99% on the El Dorado Royale (EDR) until reading 100 reviews last night. My reluctance now is the beach (no snorkeling and rocky as well as the size of the resort being very impersonal. Also read that it is very boring and no entertainment there.

 

Has anyone been to both and can compare for me?

I mean these are just reviews and some people will not be happy with anything, I get that!

 

Our worry about seaside is it is ++ romance, which we want some of, but we will have a few single guys attending too.

 

HELP!

Hi Eden,

 

Well, I haven't been to both resorts and I can tell you INMHO that the EDR is anything but impersonal. The staff is incredibly friendly! We actually really liked the size of the resort. It feels like a private, tropical village, which is nice if you are going for an extended period. I think the size is also a bonus if you think not everyone will want to hang out with other wedding guests 24/7.

 

Good luck deciding. I'm sure either will be great!

EDR charges $500 to bring in your own photographer. Just something to consider. I've heard it's very romantic. Being on a beach with snorkeling was really important to me. I don't mind if it's rocky. I'm just telling guest to bring water shoes.

EDR and EDSS weddings are coordinated through the same company: Lomus
so the policy will be the same. The policy is either $500 or the photographer has to stay 2/3 nights at the resort.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought there WAS snorkeling at the EDR. I was even reading TA posts about how to fill water bottles with cut-up banana and water to help lure the fish toward you when snorkeling there and how you can wade around the "whales" out to the reef as well as see many fish around the "whales"... is this misinformation?

No misinfo - your right!! Well I haven't been personally, but based off of everything I have read, it is because of the 'whales' that there is actually better snorkling around EDR. So if snorkling is important - this should be a major plus for EDR over another resort! It is a great advantage to the 'whales'!

What are the whales? I feel like your are not talking about the animal. I noticed big sandbag looking things in the water in front of EDR. Is that what those are?

haha!

Yes Morgan your right! the 'whales' are the large sandbags that are in the water along the beach line.

 

They were put there a few years after Hurrican Ivan(??) because alot of the beach was eroded, and this will help prevent further erosion of both the beach and the ocean floor.

    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
