Dress code at Royal Decameron

Post by Randy in MN » Mon Feb 18, 2008 5:40 pm

We will be at the Royal Decameron on Sat 2/23. Just wondering if anyone knows the dress codes at their restaurants. Most places I've been require dress pants and collared shirts at the sit-down restaurants , usually shorts with nicer shirts at the buffets. How about shoes? Are sandals okay or will I have to bring dress shoes? I like to pack light, so if you have to dress nicer the suitcase fills up fast with extra shoes and nice clothes.
Can't wait to leave this bad Minnesota winter. :cry:
Thanks
Randy :D

i've walked through the place (not stayed) and would say very
clean and 3-4 stars - so, to be on safe side, try emailing them
[email protected] and if no response by friday,
be safe, take pants. nice tennis shoes should be fine.
sat. the 23rd? wonder if we're on same flight?
we're out of HHH terminal @ 6am.

very relaxed.

Nice pair of Golf shorts and a nice collared shirt with a pair of leather type sandles seemed to be the norm but there were people that were more dressed up.

It's a very casual place- make sure you go out one night down to Marks place (1/4 mile walk ont he same street) it is wonderful.

remember to bring soap/shampoo, etc...they do not provide those kind of things as I recall.

An all inclusive resort that doesn't supply soap and shampoo? Sounds odd to me..

No - actually I just like to make things like that up, to throw people for a loop.

Also, take the beach walk towards Bucerias... stop at Karen's Place for a really nice romantic dinner on the beach. Great food, and wonderful service... and a NICE WINE LIST...

You will love RDC and Bucerias... venture out a lot... there is a lot to do in Bucerias... !!

Sorry didn't intend to offend, but I've never stayed at an AI, and somehow figured all inclusive meant all inclusive.

Is Jimmy still the activities director?

He took good care of our group when we were there! Very nice people all the way around!

My husband, Brother-in-law, Sister-in-law & myself are going to be there next week.

Thanks for the info!!!!

BTW.....Are the electrical outlets compatible with USA's? We've never been to Mexico before, so we have TONS of questions. :D

Hi Momma_x5 welcome to the forum..
Your ticker countdown looks very good.. :)

Yes the electrical outlets are compatible with USA's..
You will enjoy staying at the DeCameron and you will come to love Mexico and it's people....
If you have any questions ask away..There are several of us on the board that have stayed at the Decameron and many that have great knowledge of PV :) ...

Thanks!

Hubby & I went on a cruise 2 years ago & stopped at Cozumel.

It was BEAUTIFUL!

That's why we decided to go to an all inclusive resort in Mexico.

The Royal Decameron looks REALLY nice!

I am getting SOOOOO excited!

I was just looking at all of the different excursions.

It's hard to decide what else to do.

Any suggestions?

I would do the canopy tour again in a heart beat! I went on the Los Veronas tour and that was great! Apparently the extreme canopy tour is really good. I went on the evening Pirate Ship and that is the only tour I didn't like. The day tours are nice. I went on the Santa Maria but I would likely choose a smaller boat next time just so there aren't so many people.

I don't know about the canopy things. I'm too much of a chicken. I like to keep my feet on the ground. lol

So far, we are thinking about renting the ATV's & going out & about on our own.

Anyone done that?

I want to see the Catholic church in Bucerias. (At least I THINK that's where it is) LOL!!!

Well I do have a little story about ATVing in the General Rambling section....I would ATV again but I would probably do the one that is in PV. The one in Bucerias is a little dusty. Apparently the dune buggy trip is good!

Can you post a link to your story, or do I just need to go searching for it?
