Why Go To: El Dorado Seaside Palms

Formerly known as the El Dorado Sensimar Riviera Maya, this resort has been merged with El Dorado Seaside Suites, and renamed “El Dorado Seaside Palms” making for one large, fabulous, adults-only resort with a wide variety of room options, dining options, and pool & beach options. Sweet!

Many longtime fans of the El Dorado Resorts will remember this property as the ‘old’ Seaside Suites, which had previously been renamed “El Dorado Sensimar Riviera Maya” when the ‘new’ Seaside Suites opened on the north side of Hidden Beach.

Along with the change in name came brand new buildings with gorgeously luxurious suites (some with ocean views), renovations of the older suites, some new restaurants (including exchange privileges with the restaurants and facilities located at the new Seaside Suites), and many other upgrades throughout the property.

So what hasn’t changed? The exemplary service by the friendliest staff in Mexico, the amazing Gourmet Inclusive® cuisine, and the unbeatable vacation experience offered by El Dorado Spa Resorts. You’ll find all of that in abundance at El Dorado Sensimar Riviera Maya.

Fun Things To Do:

  • Swinging and sipping great cocktails at the Guacaymas or Cortorros bars - so fun!
  • Belting out Karaoke tunes at the Kanaloa bar (at Seaside) - we rocked it!
  • Tasting so many terrific drinks made with Mezcal at Mezcalito - wow!
  • Uh....we did find things other than hanging at the bars, I'm sure we'll remember what they were when the hangover eases..
