Chocolate therapy works!  

I was dipped in milk chocolate and coated with a thin candy shell.  Okay, that might be a bit of an exaggeration.

The entire adults-only resort experience is over-the-top at El Dorado Royale.   Personal attention and superior service is not a slogan.  Every need, want, and whim is a top priority.

That’s a fact.  Not an exaggeration.

Luxury laces every experience.   You can kickback in chic suites with your private Jacuzzi and 24-hour room service.  Float away in one of 13 pools or drift away with a spa treatment.

The Gourmet Inclusive adds the pleasure of authentic dishes from around the world.  Expertly prepared meals are plated and served with incredible wines or other libations.

Seriously, you can taste the difference.   El Dorado Royale Karisma is home to Fuentes Restaurant.   Fuentes has earned the Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence the past four years.

Guests at the ElDorado Royale can check out the Casitas Spa.  Try to picture nearly half an acre of saunas, steam rooms, treatment rooms, and a serenity pool under one roof.

Now add a boutique “everything spa” shop, fitness center, event space and full-service wellness salon.   I just call it the “Pamper Parlor”.   Let me recommend a couple of my favorite treatments.

Ask about the exotic grape alternative treatment.  This treatment involves wine derivatives and it’s supposed to make my skin vital and luminous.  That’s not exactly what I’m telling the guys at work.

This treatment left me feeling stress free but at the same revitalized.  I was totally relaxed but raring to go dancing.   My other favorite is based on my healthy addiction to all things chocolate.

It’s billed as a treatment laden with cocoa butter and enriched with minerals.  This procedure is paired with a body wrap and facial called the Pearl Sensation.  Think skin hydration and revitalization.

Sweet, sweet chocolate combined with the other scents and effects on your body and face make this one delicious experience.

Here’s a tip for Brides.   The spa has a bridal suite where you can have a girls-only beauty retreat.   Picture body wraps, mannies and peddies, scrubs, facials, and full on salon services.

Just remember that Casistas Royale is a resort within a resort at ElDoradoRoyale.   The Spa is easy to find.   Easy to book.  Hard to leave.

There are a lot of delightful distractions for vacationing couples and honeymooners at the El Dorado Royale.  The spa experience should definitely be on your bucket list.

What should you do if you only have time for one treatment?

Go Chocolate!

It’s what Willie Wonka would do.
