Tips from a Destination Wedding Specalist

  • The resort takes pride in their farm-to-table dining experiences, with a 76,000 square-foot hydroponic greenhouse on-site that produces fresh herbs and vegetables.
  • This is a very large property, and shuttles or golf carts may be needed to get from one end of the resort to the other.
  • The resort has an entire weddings planning team dedicated just to planning.  This means you can begin your wedding planning much earlier than most competing resorts who don't start until 3 months prior to the wedding date
  • The private enclave experience at Casitas is a unique and rare offering where you can guarantee your group be booked into the same area of the resort, complete with your own section of beach, own private pool and swim up bar just for your group

Wedding Packages

Please note wedding package details are provided for informational purposes only.  Wedding packages and promotions change regularly and are also subject to black-out dates so please consult with your agent and your wedding planner for specific details on the package and promotions that apply specifically to your wedding day.

El Dorado Royale Weddings Package and Resort Information

  • Package Costs
    • Free-20,000
      • The base Always And Forever Wedding Package begins at $950, however it is free when booking a minimum of at least 5 rooms for 3 nights.
      • The Memorable Moments Ultimate Wedding Package begins at 9,999
      • South Asian Gourmet Inclusive Wedding Package begins at $18,799
      • The Private Enclave Wedding Package begins at 19,999
    • Most of our couples go with the always and forever package and then add on extra events and items they want from there to create a custom wedding package built to their needs.
  • Room Occupancy
    • Rooms allow up to 3 adults on El Dorado Side of the resort.  At Generations most rooms allow 2 adults and 2 children max, however larger 2 and three bedroom suites are available allowing up to 6 adults and 6 children.
  • Chance of Sell-Out
    • Medium/High
      • Generations and Casitas are regularly sold out
      • High season months for wedding groups include April-July, October-November.
      • Strongly encouraged to do a room block to ensure availability for your guests and lock in rates and incentives.
  • Rate Season
    • High Season Begins just before Christmas, and extends until the end of April
    • Mid Season usually begins in may and extends until August
    • Low Season is August until just before Christmas
  • Weddings Per Day
    • The resort typically hosts no more than 3 weddings per day.  Weddings are not held at the same time or location and great care is taken to ensure wedding parties do not see each other / overlap locations, etc.  Our brides typically feel like they were the only ones getting married that day at the resort until they see other brides at the bar for their after-party!
  • Communication
    • El Dorado has a big advantage over competing resorts because their weddings planning team is completely separate from their day-of team.  This allows weddings to begin planning much earlier than other hotels
    • Communication is very good with coordinators often responding in 1-2 business days throughout the year, however during peak wedding season responses may take longer.
  • Unique Benefit
    • Shade!!  No resort in the area has more palm trees than El dorado Resorts in general -- this gives brides many location options for a  ceremony that is able to provide guests with a break from the heat and sun!!  In addition, it creates amazingly beautiful cool spots to lounge around and waste the days away with friends and family before or after the wedding day without coming home completely sun-burnt!
