Great resort, my wife and I enjoyed our stay. Everyone was very helpful and gave excellent service. You are walking distance from shops if you wanted to adventure off the resort, with a small market right across the street. This was our third time in Jamaica and I would put this resort on the top of the list. It was nice to have the late hour snack […] bar open, the buffet was very good, always had fresh fruit and salads to choose from. There is something for everyone.... The water sports were very good also, the snorkeling around the resort was good and the beach area was larger than I expected. Our room was great; we were in room 01, a great view of the ocean right at your door. If you plan on buying rum, wait until you go back to the airport on the way home and purchase it at the duty free shops. You will pay half the price then you would pay for it at any grocery store. I plan on going back again next year and if available I will be staying here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"close to the airport"
At the time of my reservation I wanted two rooms adjoining since it was a family vacation. Arriving at the hotel one room was on the first floor and one on the fourth. My room on the first floor had a dripping air conditioner. I reported the problem once on the phone and then again in person. The problem was never fixed. I asked for extra towels and […] did not get them. Needless to say I would not go back. The kids club only provided activities for very young children. Nightly entertainment was not worth attending. On the night we attended the night club there were three people (although the hotel was sold out) Walls are paper thin, we could hear the couple next door fighting at 1:30 in the morning. Beach - very small. Plus - On a whole the hotel is clean and the workers pleasant. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for a long weekend"
Good if in a budget. Nothing fancy, small, close to airport. Check in experience was a nightmare and clerks at the front desk are not friendly. But everybody else was very nice specially in the restaurant, bars, entertainment and beach equipment. Food is good in the buffet, but the a la carte is always the same menu.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My husband and I took our honeymoon for 6 nights at the Royal Decameron. Loved every minute of it!!! The staff were excellent! The rooms were a little outdated so don't expect luxury, but they were very clean and we could care less because the only time we spent in the rooms were when we were sleeping. Already planning the next time to go back!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great value for all inclusive hotel"
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Royal Decameron at Montego Bay and the Runaway Bay locations. We booked the Montego Bay location but due to recent rain, 12 rooms were flooded, so, Ms. Brown in guest relations, moved us to the Runaway Bay location. At first we were very frustrated with the change, but she offered us a lobster dinner, champagne, free […] internet (1 hr) and free passes to Dunns River Falls ($20 value). For us, this made up for the inconvenience and we got a chance to see a different part of the island. We stayed at the Runaway Bay location for 3 nights and went back to the Montego Bay location for 1 night. With all that said, we believe the Montego Bay location was much better. The beach and water were much much better at Montego Bay and the food was also better. The Montego Bay location is very close to the airport which was very convenient. Overall, we enjoyed both resorts. This isn't a 4 or 5 star resort so don't get the wrong impression, but it was very safe and clean and we will definitely be staying at the Royal Decameron again.

"ON MY VACATION ENJOYABLE"
GOOD WORK BY ALL THE STAFF AT THE HOTEL,UNDERSTANDING AND HELPFULL TO ALL MY NEEDSGenuine Expedia guest review
We have been to Jamaica before and love the climate and water. Again we were not disappointed. The sea was rougher than previous, but no problem swimming. Water sports were delayed a couple days and some beach area closed off due to waves. The people and ambiance are great! Relaxed atmosphere with friendly, down to earth clientelle. Several were repeat […] customers. Worth your time especially if price is a concern. Don't expect a four star hotel and you will love it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great company, service."
Well run hotel with focus on customer experience. Great food for a resort. Location not our favorite - the hip strip is annoyance. Some prefer being able to get out into the tourist shopping area though.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good AI resort"
The rooms were great, food was good and staff were fine too. The whole waterfront area was wonderful - lots of different options to pick from where u wanted to hang out for the day. The only 2 minus's were no beach towels for the 3 days we were there, and no free Wi-Fi , which most hotels in Jamaicia had.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a nice spacious room in the annex part with amazing ocean view. Couldn't be closer to the sea. The hotel is a charming place somewhat old fashioned, but in a positive way. Excellent breakfast, lunch and dinner average. Great cocktails. Staff pretty relaxed. We didn't mind small imperfections and we highly recommend this hotel. Having said that, […] if you are looking for top-notch service and luxury premises this is not the place. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Jamaican Hospitality at its best"
In every way, the staff and administration of Royal Decameron Montego Bay provide a welcoming environment for all its guests. During my stay, I was aware of multiple nationalities and age groups, among them American, Barbadian, British, Canadian, Chinese, Dominican, French, Irish, Italian, Jamaican, Japanese, Mexican, and Russian vacationers, all having […] a great time. Most of the rooms have idyllic views of the Caribbean Sea gleaming in aquamarine postcard-worthy splendor. The property is meticulously maintained, so much so that one could observe ancillary staff unobtrusively touching up walls with fresh paint, appearing like clockwork after prime pool hours to blow away leaves and freshen up for the next day, always deferring to lingering guests to avoid intruding on their peaceful relaxation. The all-inclusive meals and beverages are not five-star but they are tastier than that found in most comparable hotels. The wait staff are thankfully friendly and attentive, with excellent attitude, a welcome throwback to the golden era of Jamaican tourism in the 1950s. All in all, with two swimming pools, one with a swim-up bar, two dining rooms, private beachfront with lifeguards, a beautifully decorated lobby with louvered walls and a spiral staircase all decked out in dark wood, and situated one mile from Sir Donald Sangster International Airport minus the airplane engine noise, who can ask for anything more!

"Time of our lives!"
The staff was above and beyond, so much so that we got their contact info after the trip and we plan to stay in touch. I've been out of the US 7 times now & this was our top 3 vacay spots. The people at the resort were from everywhere & we had an amazing time meeting everyone. The food was so delicious & special, I'm still thinking about it. Some of […] the reviews were negative about the food & I was hesitant for that reason, but I was beyond delighted when we finally did eat here, Reviews are either wrong or the food has changed since then. We ate somewhere else, Other than the resort once, otherwise we ate 7 days on the resort and it was awesome for every meal. Daily entertainment was so fun, day & night. We played pool games, trivia, couples games, we participated in everything. Resort is gorgeous, gym equipment was great too, water is so clear and gorgeous. I would go here again, in fact we didn't want to leave Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Needs a lot of help!"
From beginning to end, the experience at Royal Decameron was anything but royal. The receptionists behaved as if it was a bother to attend to us. There were 7 of us as adults and 2!children. We were celebrating our father's birthday, and believe me it would have been better if we had found somewhere else to go where the reception was better. We waited […] about 20 minutes before someone came to take our luggage inside. There were so many things that went wrong, from them running out of beach towels and us waiting over an hour to get them to the elevator breaking down and my elderly mother having to walk up two flights of stairs with a bad knee to having to pay for wifi even in the hotel lobby to room not being cleaned until after 4:00pm to bathroom towels not being replaced after cleaning. Royal Decameron will never ever be on our list of return hotels. A small cosy hotel but needs a lot of trained staff members who know how to deal with the general public.

"Nice Location but everything else is poor..."
We enjoyed being within walking distance to everything but the condition of the property was poor. The a/c in our room only worked the 1st day of our 5 nights we were there. We never had a decent shower - the pressure was terrible and at one point there was absolutely no water coming out of the faucet. The food at the buffet was never very good - the […] restaurant was good! We did enjoy the entertainment at night and most of the staff was friendly. Keep an extra eye on your valuables, my boyfriends phone was stolen while we were at the pool one day. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Me and my wife stayed for 7 nights. Hotel is good place to stay safe,clean. 15 minutes walk to Montego bay downtown,and 5 minutes from Airport by taxi . City is old,poor and nothing to see,actually you will feel scary. but all the touristic places are wonderful, paradisaical, well preserved.nothing is cheap.not many places to eat out. so, hotel with […] all inclusive is a most. My wife lost a Perfume, we did a report the following day,they said they will investigate,and 2 or 3 days later they said that they are not responsible for any lost.

"Nice but dated. On the beach."
Food ok. Limited variety. Limited quantities, so some guests do not get full selection. Missed incoming calls to hotel guest...no message given to guest about the calls. even if caller requests to give phone message to guest. Not enough beach towels...so at times no beach towels for some guests.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Cheap stay, but you get what you pay for."
When I booked the stay I was trying to save as much money as possible, when I got to the hotel my room wasnt that great so I had to upgrade (extra $20 per night per person), that helped a lot. Didnt really liked you had to pay for wifi service. The property is pretty small, and the pool nothing great. To be honest I would advise anybody to stay at the […] RIU thats close by. bigger hotel, better rooms, free wifi. more restaurants options. and you wind up spending the same amount of money any way.

Stay was great! Food was delicious for every meal. We enjoyed the water sports and nightly entertainment. Bar drinks were great! Staff was friendly for the most part! Charlene went above and beyond to help us throughout our stay! The snack bar/al a carte bar was kind of hidden and we only were able to use it once. The gym was more than we expected.

"Closest resort to the airport"
Only 5 min from the Airport, a flat $15.00 taxi rate. Resort claims to have all oceanfront rooms but they have at least 2 garden-view rooms that I would definitely steer clear of. I booked very last minute and they only had a garden view room available. When we arrived, I thought it was a joke, it must have been some extra rooms for maintenance or housekeeping […] that they decided to throw some beds in and charge tourists for the "garden view". It had 1 room with a single bed & tv with a dark hallway to another BR with a king bed/tv & bathroom. The walls were painted really dark purple and grey and had no pictures, patio doors or ceiling fans. There was a door out to a shared back porch with a couple of old mismatched plastic chairs. I can't sleep with the AC on, so we usually rely on the ceiling fan to circulate the air, so without it, the room was warm and stuffy. Next morning, I asked for a fan for the room and was advised by management that all their rooms had ceiling fans. We actually brought him to the room to show him, even he seemed shocked at the quality of the room. He eventually gave us a room with a pool view which was completely opposite to what we had. Beautiful bright, cheerful and a nice private balcony with Adirondack chairs. After that, the rest of the resort was okay, food was good , pools were clean and drinks were strong. The beach is basic, just a few feet of sand then warm blue water. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Jamaica trip 10-16 /10-22-13"
The moment we arrived at the royal Decameron what struck me most was the view. it is truly the most picturesque resort we have stayed in Jamaica. The rooms are spacious and brightly colored and very well kept with all but 10 rooms having ocean views. The only real complaint that we have is the towel distribution. We had to sign beach towels out every […] time we needed them which really wouldn't be a big deal if they were made more available to guest.(There is only one place to sign out towels and it is a pretty good walk if you are on the opposite side of the resort). Also when the housekeeping staff would clean the room they would take our bath towels and they would not get replaced until late afternoon. We are not sure why they wouldn't leave towels but it makes for a problem if you want a shower before evening. The food was good and the wait staff excellent. We, however only had the chance to eat at the buffet and look forward to returning to try the ala carte restaurant in the near future. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Better than advertised"
The pictures on-line doesn't do this hotel justice...The place and atmosphere was beautiful. Upon walking into the hotel, from the lobby you can see the bright blue sea. My wife and I went there for our honeymoon. We were greeted with a special drink by a server. The ocean view from our room was great! The food was very good, and it was a lot of it. […] The drinks were good also. We ate and drunk beverages throughout our stay. The workers were friendly. Our favorite was Dalmane and the female breakfast cook (Can't remember her name). It was very close to the airport. I do think that the price for the taxi ride should be less given that the hotel is about a mile or so from the airport. My advice to visitors keep your currency in USA dollars. The value is greater. The beach was great! We liked that it was smaller and it was occupied by adults. It was quiet there. We found ourselves falling asleep a lot on the beach. The only improvement I'd suggest for the hotel is to get better/more friendlier female front desk clerks. They were not mean, but smiles and perceived joy for your job could go a long way. There were moments when they didn't have answers to questions and were not as helpful. There were moments at night that the cashier person was not around. The Hip Stripe is great! Be prepared to shop, if you go on it. If it's your first time to the Caribbean, bring OFF to fight off bugs. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to beach, not a place I would go back to"

"Best Hotel in Montego Bay!"
This is the second time I've stayed at the Royal Decameron. I thought the first time I stayed was good and this stay was even better. It's not a huge hotel, which makes it nice and friendly. You start to see the same faces after a day and everyone talks to each other, makes you feel part of a small community. Very welcoming, great friendly staff that […] are very helpful. The food is perfect, something different everyday and lots of choices, so there's always something to have. Only downside I had on this trip was I had requested a crib to be in the room. On check it they confirmed they'd received the request and one would be in the room. 4 hours later at 9:30 at night, by which time my baby was asleep in my arms, after asking at the reception 4 times, the crib finally appeared, but just left in the room, no sheets or anything given.

"WOW - What a Place !!!"
My wife and I arrived and we were blown away. The staff met us at the door and was sooo friendly. The room was clean, and the grounds were well kept, and the beach was serene and the location was right on the beach. The food was awesome, we ate, we ate, we ate, and we ate! The entertainment by the staff was off the hook, very funny and creative. Be […] careful when you go into town, because scurity will line you up with a cab for $15 one way, and you can get a local cab for $1 per person. The shops outside the hotel will try to sell you their merchandise at a high price, don't pay what they offer, you mak them a bid and if they do not acept just walk away, you will find the same item somewhere else cheaper. We highly recommend this hotel, and we are aready planning for our next trip to go back. ENJOY!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Value Hotel Choice"
We had a wonderful experience at the Decameron in Montego Bay. It was well maintained, the food was good (variety could have been better, but the sit down restaurant was very good), the location right on the water is fantastic, and the staff were very helpful. The resort was pretty empty since Sept. is a slow season. The pools are small, so if the resort […] was full, they might feel crowded. At this time of the year though, it was perfect. The room was clean. There was a slight mildew smell, but that is pretty standard in the tropics. The smell goes away as soon as you run the air conditioner. We stayed at a 5 star resort as well and our room had exactly the same issue. It's just part of island living. The water had great clarity, they've maximized their beach front and the hammocks were wonderful. There was plenty of lounge chairs and outdoor beds as well. I would recommend this resort to anyone as an excellent value. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

It was wonderful experience staying at this Resort for 4 nights. Their facilities , staff , restaurant , grill , bar , pools , everything was excellent.

I will highly recommend this resort to any one going to Montego bay […] . Food was excellent and best part is every thing was included (all inclusive). Only thing I didn't like is they don't have wifi in rooms. this was the only thing we had to pay. They charge $5 for one hour to use wifi but it can be used only in lobby area, that's a negative because now a days every one needs wifi and in room. I will still rate 10 out 10 Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
