"Affordable All-Inclusive Resort right on the Beach"
This was my second stay at the Royal Decameron in Montego Beach. Location: This resort is on the "Hip Strip". It's home to local shops, a gaming facility, Margaritaville, Hotels, and For-Profit beaches. The resort itself is a 5 minute drive from the Airport, which is great because cab fare is not cheap. Most importantly, while other hotels on the strip have ocean view's, they are not directly on the beach. RDC is right on the ocean. Staff: Both times I've stayed at RDC, the staff was always friendly from the time I checked-in to the time I checked-out. They always made sure to go the "extra mile" for you. Every time you pass a staff member in the hallways, expect a smile and to be asked how your trip is going so far. Food: The food is decent. I liked it, but nothing to brag about. But hey, it's included! For authentic Jamaican cuisine I suggest eating at The Pelican or The Pork Pit on the Hip Strip at least one day on your trip. Families: I'd say the majority of guests are couples and groups of friends. While kids may enjoy snorkeling or playing in the sand, there isn't much to do for younger children here. That was okay with me as I was looking for a quieter environment. There is another resort in Mo' Bay with slides and kiddie pools. Not included in the all-inclusive Package: Wi-Fi, Transportation, outside excursions. Also note: No ATM on site. There is an on-site Travel Agent to help you book day trips. Overall, I enjoyed both times and would stay there again!

"Right on the Caribbean Sea"
Hotel was great , easy to make dinner reservation. Weather was perfect so that always helps. We had the garden view room which had a twin bed in the sitting area with a refrigerator ( no charge), A/C, dresser ,TV, large closet, Iron & board. a short hall with a mirror to the bedroom with a king bed , TV and another A/C and large bathroom with tub/shower ,hair dryer, soap & 1 small bottle shampoo & 1 large bottle water for a week stay. Save your water bottle and they will fill it up for you .This is a gated area even the employees cant come back in after their shift. They will meet you outside the gate if you need help going somewhere. Taxi rides are expensive 15.00 one way from airport to this hotel short distance. 25.00 one way to Margaritaville which is in walking distance.They did offer free shuttle to Margaritaville friday night A lot of chairs all day long , free snorkel gear, and non motorized boats. Gym, playground for kids, basketball court, shuffleboard, tennis is across the street and plenty of food and drink. Nice to bring your own cup. Nightly entertainment from 8:30-10:30

"Would stay again!"
We loved our time at Royal DeCameron Montego Bay. It's a relatively smaller resort, but has many things to do and several different beach options. They just opened a new beach that is gorgeous!! The food is ok, desserts are awesome. The employees are the best! Everyone is so pleasant and helpful. SO much fun. We met so many people from all over the world and really had a great time. It's not the top of the line, as in it needs some updates and some things don't work well, but we made do and it was fine. There are several different activities all day long, so you can always find something to do. It's really laid back too. You can dress up or not. They have entertainment every night that is pretty darn good and always entertaining. Be careful if you decide to participate. :) All the servers are great and the bartenders do a great job. The front desk is always helpful and friendly. It's location is great too. You can walk to the local shops and Margaritaville.

"They'll send you to Runaway Beach"
We arrived in Montego Bay after several hours of travel for the day coupled with a shuttle ride to the hotel. Exhausted, the staff made us wait for 20 minutes while they were clearly trying to get their story in order. After the wait, they took us into the staff office to inform us that there was not a room available due to plumbing issues. When we challenged that as a lie and asked to see the room that was not capable of being stayed in, the manager on duty refused. They provided us no choice but to go to their sister resort in Runaway Beach. That Royal Decameron location was wonderful. Excellent staff, great service, beachside bungalow, etc. If anything the move was a blessing in disguise. I would not recommend the Montego Bay location to my enemy though after the way they treated us and clearly lied to our face in an effort to get rid of us and send us to the other location. It's pretty clear that they overbooked and moved those who had paid a discounted rate. Do NOT stay here; go to Runaway beach and let Silvan there take care of you. He and the rest of the staff were awesome.

"They have no idea what they are doing"
The hotel staff seriously has no idea what they are doing and are down right insulting people. I checked into the hotel and there was incredibly loud construction going on next door. Not what you want to hear on vacation. Not only that the WiFi worked about 10% of the time. I needed to get work done in the mornings, and between the construction noise and lack of WiFi this hotel wasn't working out for me. The next morning I checked out of the hotel early and was assured by the staff that I would be refunded for the next day due to the construction. All they said was call the manager in the morning and they will take care of it for sure. So I call expedia and go back and forth with the hotel manager and expedia. After an hour of holding while still on vacation the hotel manager tells expedia there is NO CONSTRUCTION going on in their hotel. They also said I wasn't trying to work in the morning. Really...you know what I was doing? So they called me a liar and sent me on my way after promising to take care of the refund for the night I was not there for. Even if you take out the fact that they called me a liar. The food was terrible, there WAS construction going on, and on top of all that while I was swimming the life guard tried to guilt me into grabbing him a drink. I'm sorry, but excuse me? I'm not your waiter. The beach area is small and the deck is more of a cliff. Not the type of place I would want to stay even if the staff where decent people

"Friendly, Relaxing Resort"
This was my husband and I first time to Montego Bay so we didn't know where to go and what to expect. The resort is very close to the airport. We got there before checkin so we didn't get to our room right away but was able to start drinking and eating. The food was good and if you are a fan of rum, you will love the drinks. All day long the staff is cleaning up and fixing the resort. My room was nice and clean. I think this resort is nice for the couple that are just trying to relax and enjoy each other company but if you are looking for a party, you may want to try another resort. It was an older, laid back crowd.

"Great food, bad wi-fi."
We were assigned a first-floor room with a king bed when we arrived, despite having requested a different floor and double beds. We were promised a different room on the fourth floor the next day and told to "check out" at noon. Our new room was going to be ready "before 3." We were finally in our new room, on the third floor, around 5 pm and felt our first vacation day was pretty much "wasted." There seemed to be a lot of confusion about the room change.

Rooms have an awesome ocean view with large balconies. Never a wait for a drink. Beach was clean and plenty of chairs and thatched umbrellas. Buffet was good-salad and fruits fresh and lots of fresh breads/bakery items. Made to order omelets were perfect. Some of the other items were unusual and not the best-fish stew for breakfast and chicken noodle soup for breakfast. Lots of sweet potato and pumpkin dishes.

"Stolen Items from Room #43"
My experience at this resort was very disappointing. We arrived on Nov. 14, 2014 and our room was not ready. The room did not have a safe, the hotel is old and need to be upgraded. I had stayed their 2 years prior and it was ok. Rooms not very clean. Food and drinks were ok to say the least. We did enjoy the nightly entertainment. On the night of 11-19-2014, some one went into our room and stolen money we filed a incident report but have not heard back from the manager nor regional manager.They will not return my call. We were promised a police report but did not get. Also some one went into room #37 and stole some of their personal items. We were at the front desk complaining at the same time about missing and stolen items. DO NOT STAY HERE !!!

"Horrible hotel"
Not only did we get robbed, but talking to other visitors there during our stay, three other couples got robbed... And the hotel management was awful. They told us we would get our money back, so we went through a series of investigations / police work and we never got anything back. We took it to the owner of the hotel and he straight up told us he was not going to turn it into insurance and we would not be compensated. They drug us around all week and ruined our vacation. They did not care at all, they knew the whole time we wouldn't get compensated

Rude and lazy staff, inedible food, outdated. Cheap alcohol and no bottled water or beer, tap only. The room- ac that wouldn't adjust, springs sticking out of mattress, toilet wouldn't flush and no hot water. No card locks on doors! Just a key attached to a bungee braclet against an old door and lock that takes special instruction to open. Don't waste your money here. Disappointed we spent the last night of our honeymoon here, in double beds, because they would not honor our reservation request.

Entertainment crew is a blast! They seemed to work all day, always laughing, smiling and engaging the visitors. Definitely not a place for kids. Food was great, best I have ever had an an all inclusive. Rooms are nothing special but they were cleaned every day including fresh towels and sheets. Bed was firm and air conditioning tempurature can be controlled with a remote and worked well. We had a room on the 3rd floor in the main building and the view was breathtaking, especially the sunsets. If you are looking for a reasonably priced vacation you will 100% get your moneys worth at the Decameron and have a great time with lots of laughs. I am already planning our next visit and I wouldn't stay anywhere else.

"Jamaica-We HIGHLY Recommend!"
Traveling to Jamaica from North Carolina in mid October was a treat! Customs at the airport moved quickly enough. Taxi from airport was only $15 and our experience was wonderful as we left a bag in the trunk. It was quickly returned the very next morning! The resort isn't new and shiney but, it very clean and everyone is very, very nice. Our AC was good although didn't have a vent in the bathroom. The view from the balcony was wonderful! The beds are not as soft and comfy as you'd probably like but, clean and better than the tile floor. If you are a diver getting up with Capt' Polly is a must! Watch out for Ole' Smokey in the water around the trampoline. :) Jamila & Mark in the lobby bar are AMAZING and so nice. Make sure you visit them! The food is good and the reservation dinner is nice but tends to get hot in there. The day we got back we were looking at booking our next trip. Choose this resort, it's wonderful!
