2020 Riviera Maya El Dorado Seaside Suites

El Dorado Seaside Suites Riviera MayaMy recent stay at El Dorado Seaside Suites by Karisma, Adults only all-inclusive was excellent.

Long recognized as one of Mexico’s premier resorts, the AAA Four Diamond El Dorado Seaside Suites, by Karisma is an oasis of luxury that is divided into two distinct sections, each providing a unique, authentic Mexican experience. Enjoy beachside bliss with lush vegetation and the coconut plantations of the Palms. Or, choose to stay in the all-oceanfront Infinity section, featuring swim-up suites that connect to the main pool. Discover balcony pools on every floor, exquisite a la carte restaurants, the largest spa in the Riviera Maya, and a spacious, beachfront, open-air Sky terrace that is perfect for weddings or private events.

I was originally booked on the Palms side and was upgraded to the swim out suites on the Infinity side. The Palms side was closed while we were there in October and has been taken over by TUI and will be renamed TUI Blue.

The lobby for the resort was vacant but most of the restaurants were open. The beach side grill was only open for breakfast and lunch. The beach access was better on Palms side with a long stretch of white sand beach. The beach on Infinity side is small and rocky with more waves. Due to COVID, the capacity was about 50% at best.2020

The main pool was active and swim up pool bar busy. Anyone with rooms on the first 3-4 floors (swim out) will be right in with all the pool guests, the only privacy is on floors 2 and above.

The restaurant served breakfast and lunch daily, only ala carte, no buffets and used QR scan to read menus. Most restaurants were open for dinner and reservations are suggested. All staff wore at minimum a mask, food servers wore mask, face shield and some wore eye shields too. Sanitizer was offered at every eating venue. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Food was good and all activities were held outdoors.

We had a lovely vacation and would not hesitate to stay at this resort again!
