In 2006 this was my number one selling resort. The reason for this is they offer a great value for an adult only resort. All Jacuzzi Junior Suites are the same on the interior. What you are paying for with the different room types is the view. Swim Up Jacuzzi Junior Suites does not guarantee a view. Some are ocean front. Most are ocean view. Some are Garden View. All have a pool connected to the patio. The first part of this pool is only about 3 inches deep where you have two beach chairs. Then you have stairs that go into a part of the pool that is about chest deep. From there you can swim to the swim up bar in the Fuentes pool. If you are interested in a Casita Suite check out the other listing on El Dorado Royal Casitas. I have so many photos of this resort I had to split it up into two sections.

All Karisma Resorts are Gourmet All-Inclusive. The concept of Gourmet All Inclusive extends way beyond food. It starts with a welcome champagne glass and a cold towel upon arrival to the resort. Then it continues to personalized check in. Karisma Resorts boast one concierge for every 35 rooms and 2.3 employees for every guest while the average all inclusive has 0.8 employees per guest. This concept is noticed in your room which has modern luxury décor with turn down service and 24 hour room service. All dining is a la carte. Restaurants and bars are never duplicated. Each resort has restaurants offering Italian and Japanese but each resort offers a different menu, ambiance, and name. Karisma only uses premium tableware and the best authentic ingredients. For example everything except for vegetables and meat in an Italian Restaurant come from Italy. All beef served at Karisma Resorts is USDA Certified Angus Beef. All sauces, breads, and pastries are made in house. Karisma even has their own fisherman to insure that everything is as fresh as possible. All plates are presented as if you had a famous chef from the Food Network cooking for you. All menus offer healthy options such as South Beach Diet, low carb, no sugar, and vegetarian. If you have any special dietary needs Karisma can accommodate. If you enjoy a glass of wine with your meal you will be impressed with their house wine. It is bottled and imported especially for Karisma Resorts from Argentina. The family that bottles the wine had to visit the resorts before he would sign the contract because he wanted to see where his wine would be served and who it was being served too so that he could create the perfect blend for Karisma. You will not find this wine in any store or at any other resort other than a Karisma Resort. Each restaurant has an extensive wine list for those who want a bit of an upgrade at a reasonable price. If you are not sure which bottle to order, the in house sommelier will be able to help you with your selection based upon your taste and what you are ordering for dinner. Gourmet All-Inclusive is found in the way the restaurants are run. They uphold the highest standards in hygiene and cleanliness. Each employee from the chef to the bus boy has to be certified for each restaurant before starting work there. This way you know that each employee is up holding the standards of Karisma and knows the answers to your questions pertaining to their menu.

The bike rental is one of my favorite parts of this resort. You can check one out just by giving your room number by Fuentes Pool (one of 2 main pools in the Jacuzzi Junior Suite section). You can bike the entire resort because the entire resort is accessible by golf cart. When it comes to going out for dinner, if you would like a ride to dinner you can call for a golf cart limo to pick you up. Please be sure to read up on the other listing of this resort titled El Dorado Casita to hear about the Casita Suites.

Reasons to Book this resort: You are looking for an upscale Adults Only resort. You are planning an all adults wedding. You are a food and wine enthusiast. You want the options to be active or relaxed on vacation. You want a resort that is close to the action but not right in the middle of it.

Reasons not to book this resort: You are traveling with kids. You are looking for resort that has a perfect beach (sand bags off shore put there to break up waves can be seen as an eye sore to some people). You want a resort that is closer to shopping and nightlife.
