I had the priviledge of traveling down to the Riviera Maya, Mexico for the GIVC Award trip! GIVC is Gourmet Inclusive Vacation Consultant. I am a specialist with Karisma Hotels which they call GIVC! Karisma hotels has upscale Adult only properties as well as upscale Family properties!
We arrived at the beautiful El Dorado Royale and were greeted with a glass of champagne! No other way to arrive after a long travel day. We got checked in and then were able to enjoy a lovely welcome reception for the GIVC agents. We were treated to massages and lots of tasty hors d’oeuvres.
The El Dorado Royale is an adults only resort with more than a mile of beautiful beach! The resort is perfect for couples looking to get away, honeymooners or for that perfect Destination wedding! All rooms have a jacuzzi to relax in after a long day at the beach. They have more than 12 pools and some that you can float right up to your room. How easy is that? The resort does have 7 restaurants, the foodie in you will not be disappointed.
We arrived into our Premium Jacuzzi Jr Suites. The rooms are beautiful with all the modern amenities. They had a beautiful view of the ocean and one of the many pool areas.
Since we arrived on Halloween, El Dorado Royale had a Halloween Party for all of us! The costumes were fantastic and so great considering everyone had to pack them! The staff even dressed up and took part in the festivties. It was an amazing time! The party did not want to end so a bunch of us ended the evening at the nightly show. I have seen lots of shows at different resorts in Mexico and this one was one of the best! After the show ended you had the oppotunity to head over the beach for a beach party or head over to Guacamaya’s and party till the wee morning hours.
