Back in December I had the opportunity to visit El Dorado Maroma in Riviera Maya, Mexico for business and pleasure. I have to admit I was a bit apprehensive at the thought of working with an all inclusive resort because back in high school I stayed at one with friends during spring break and let’s just say it didn’t leave the best on impression on me, but El Dorado Resorts blew my expectations out of the water and then some. Working with their team was an absolute dream and I was amazed the quality of service they provided for their patrons. I plan to share more details and images of our visit over the next month, but below are a few we took during our stay to give you a small sampling of what this beautiful resort has to offer…

As someone who usually will pick staying in a hostel over splurging for a resort, my experience at El Dorado Resorts has completely opened up my eyes to the perks of letting someone else take care of the details for you. If you are considering a spot for your honeymoon or a place to get married(I love the old church on the property above), I cannot recommend El Dorado Resorts enough and would highly suggest checking out their site to learn more. Happy planning!

Sam and I honeymooned at the El Dorado Royale in the Riviera Maya three years ago and we would recommend it in a heartbeat. These images remind me of our honeymoon-so beautiful, luxurious, and CLEAN. The food rocked and the service was amazing. I don’t think a couple could have a bad time at an El Dorado resort.

Hey Tifany

We used a polaroid land camera and a holga. It was our first time using both and we were pleasantly surprised how well the images turned out.
