What We Love:

  • It’s HUGE enough to find lots to do & see and still be on the Resort grounds.
  • You can choose between reading quietly on beachfront beds or rowdy pool parties and never the twain shall meet.
  • Your vaulted ceiling thatched roof rooms make you feel like you are on safari!
  • The grounds are immaculate. The most amazing flora and fauna right on the beach


El Dorado Casitas Royale, has a perfect location because it is in the very heart of the Riviera Maya facing to the beautiful Mexican Caribbean,

just 25 minutes from the International Cancun Airport

and 15 minutes from Playa del Carmen.

The Resort is surrounded by 450 hectares of forest, (I don’t know what a hectare is either, but it’s large enough to sport a stadium sized greenhouse that provides most of the veggies the resort consumes – Ask for the Free tour) between hundreds of palm trees and just a mile from the unspoiled beaches of Punta Brava.
