ENTERTAINMENT:
Nightly entertainment program with live music and small shows. The resort brings in professional entertainment troups that change nightly. 

BEACH:
The beach and beach bedsThe beach is over a mile long and very wide. The long pier was added in October, 2012. Sunsets on this beach are picture perfect. Looking for something unique - perhaps private? There is a plethora of four poster thatched roof beach beds with curtains for privacy. So find a good book or perhaps a good partner and snuggle in comfort to the sound of the waves. You can arrange a sleepover in a specially prepared beach bed. There is even a salt water pool perfect for snorkeling. Warning - there are sandbags in the ocean which can be unsightly if you focus on them. However, they do a great job of breaking the hard waves, making the ocean here a great location to wade, snorkel and frolic. More importantly there is no erosion here, unlike Cancun and more recently the Playacar area. You will love being pampered by the beach waiters who take your drink orders.

Plenty of non-motorized water activities such as paddleboats, kayaks, and snorkeling are included. Motorized water activities are available for an additional fee.

*Beach Butlers provide Casita guest with added services. These butlers pamper Casita guests with Gourmet Bites, towels, refreshments, cool misting, and sun tan lotion. Don't get up - just call your beach butler.

JO JO'S:

Burger Menu @ JoJo'sThe staff at ULTIMATE CRUISE & VACATION has a ritual. When we check in to El Dorado Royale we dump off our bags, take pictures and video's of our room and head straight for Jo Jo's Caribbean Seaside Grill for a fantastic lunch and some cold cerveza or Margarita's. The typical lunch menu includes appetizers like ceviche, fish fingers, and a wonderful Corn Chowder. Among our favorite entrees: Burgers (they have their own extensive burger menu - see the photo insert), Mahi Mahi, Grouper, Fajitas, and Ribs. The ice ream is very good! Located on the beach this is a covered open air venue. During dinner you can see the lights from Cozumel and the passing cruise ships while you dine on mouthwatering Caibbean dishes. The menu is far too extensive to tackle but there's something for everyone. Don't miss this one. Open for lunch at 11am, and dinner beginning at 6pm. However in December, 2014 they began testing the response to breakfast. We vote in favor!

FUENTES:

Las Fuentes Gourmet Show Cooking Restaurant @ El Dorado Casitas RoyaleWe are thrilled to say that we dined in Fuentes on Opening Night with the top executives from Karisma Resorts and Funjet Vacations. This Culinary Theater is air conditioned under an amazing palapa roof. The kitchen is open for observation and the cooking techniques are broadcast on large screen monitors in the restaurant for your viewing pleasure. The Chef will explain all the details of the amazing gourmet ingredients he uses - many from their very own green house.

Reservations are required and you must be prompt for the 7:30 seating. Fuentes is closed on Sundays.

*The meals at El Dorado Royale are a la carte. Never a mandatory buffet. If you are a picky eater and afraid of the stories you've heard about all-inclusives you should seriously consider this resort - you will not be disappointed.

RINCON MX:

Appetizer Dish @Rincon MX at El Dorado RoyaleThis is one actually evolved from an outdoor lunch-only option. Opening in the summer of 2012 Rincon transformed into a nice air conditioned glass-walled dining room open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We are highly impressed with the quality of the authentic Mexican cuisine presented for all three meals and the creativity of their creations!

 

SANTE FE GRILL:
Sante Fe Grill & Wine RoomThe newest culinary addition to the gourmet collection. Located upstairs behind D'Italia Casitas and adjacent to the fabulous (secret premium) Bellinis Bar. Soon after Sante Fe Grill opened we sampled wonderful Tamal, deep sea scallop, Venison tenderloin, Tikin'xic style catch of the day, braised pork belly, and for dessert - a trio of local flavors, tomatoes jam, mango chipotle & bitter chocolate ganache. All of which was absolutely mouthwatering! And let us not forget to mention their signature Grilled Pineapple Cocktail which we sampled several times for good measure. Salute! We have since dined here often for breakfast, lunch and the outstanding dinner. For dinner you select a main entree and one side dish. The staff will bring you four courses of delicious appetizers to share. Reservations are required and we highly recommend this dining experience.
