              Close to the beach.

              I was charged at the hotel and with Booked.net. So I paid twice. No having much success getting my money credited back from Hotel.

              Its location is great!!!

              The elevator is slow and old. They should put some attention to this.

              everything excellent

              nothing I disliked

              The El Dorado was an excellent choice for getting your money's worth. My room had an ocean view, the food was great, all you can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner. The bar is open from 11am to 11pm and all the drinks are free and they have a live entertainment show every night. The hotel has a section of the beach of there own. All this for $60.00 a night I really thought it was a great deal.

              Do not get too friendly with the beach seller's. They have people selling everything you can think of on the beach, but I did enjoy paying $3 a beer and having someone go get a ice cold beer for me when I was on the beach.
