"Nice hotel on the beach"
Had a great time with my children. Beach was awesome and the pools were great. Took the glass bottom boat tour and snorkeled which was amazing. Drinks were flowing and the food was abundant.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a great time at this resort. The entertainment staff puts on great nightly shows that were so much fun to watch. We enjoyed the small size of the resort which ran along the ocean. The food was good, we especially enjoyed the jerk chicken, fresh fruit and homemade breads. Unlike other reviewers, we found the front desk to be very friendly and […] accommodating. Jamaica is a wonderful country with warm, upbeat people who enjoy sharing their culture with visitors. If you are looking for a nice, down to earth, ocean front resort and like to have a good time, this resort is for you. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was kept up pretty well. The food from the cafe was not the greatest selection but the restaurant that needs to be reserved in advance to visit had great cusines. If you stay here the activities and nightly shows are very entertaining for both families and adults although some a little more adult rated than others. Plenty to do and several […] sections to the beach. The staff was friendly but on their own time schedule. Nothing started on time or if you needed something it took a while. If you visit plan to not be in a hurry as the atmosphere is very relaxed for employees. I would recommend requesting a beach front view as the garden views are not very good. We were placed in a garden view room that had a view of a roof and then requested a different room and it was kind of difficult to switch because of the language barrier but when we switched the rest of the time there was great. Overall I would probably go again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Vacation and stay"
If your looking for a cheap getaway on a budget this place won't disappoint. I loved my stay and will be back again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice, clean resort. Close to all."
I can't say enough about this resort. It was small but just the right size for my husband and I. This was my first time at a resort and the experience was wonderful. The facilities was exceptionally clean. Our room was simple and neat. Some things were dated but in very good condition. There was always someone one step behind you cleaning and tidying […] up yet not annoyingly so. There are two pools, one with a swim up bar and one without. Both were excellent. There was a hot tub which had a sign that said it closed at 5 but we never paid attention to that and no one kicked us out after hours. They did clean it later in the night so you cant use it after that. The beach was quaint and perfect. There are a few areas where you can sit by the water. This is not a resort for someone who likes long walks on the beach. The area is too small for that. It felt very intimate and quite a few times there were less than 5 people on the beach with us. At night, we had it all to ourselves. The staff was accommodating especially the entertainment staff. The food was wonderful, the breads fantastic! The dining area overlooks the water which was so peaceful to have that view while you ate. Captain Polly and the glass bottom boat was fantastic! Highly recommended! The drinks were strong, at least for me. They were not stingy with alcohol. Overall great little resort. Very intimate and great service! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Staff is not helpful!"
Royal Decameron is a decent hotel. However, the staff seemed indifferent. They were not overly friendly or helpful! The rooms were ok. The food was decent. The nightly entertainment was pretty good. I guess you get what you pay for.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Beaches but NOT a 4.1 Star Hotel!"
The resort was disappointing. Having a 4.1 star guest rating is very very misleading. Check in process was horrible. We got there at 1:30 after a long flight and they would not give us a room until 3PM because that was the "check in time." The girl who checked us in claimed to have given us a room upgrade. I would hate to see what a "normal" room looks […] like. The whole resort needs a major renovation. There is no fridge in the room so forget about having cold water after a hot day on the beach. The room is very basic, plain, and small. It's equivalent to a room you would get at a cheap hotel like a Travelodge. The food was ok. Not fresh at all. Imitation crab meat. The quality of the food was very disappointing. The beach area was amazing. The only enjoyable thing about the hotel. They have snorkel gear, paddle boats, kayakes. That was a lot of fun and the fish are just beautiful when you snorkel. I would not recommend this place to anyone and my husband and I will not be going back! We will def go back to Jamaica just not the Royal Decameron. They don't even give u bottles of water. They make you buy it from the gift shop. When I think all inclusive, I think they should provide you with bottles of water. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I enjoyed my time at resort. I wish they had better jamaican selections for buffet especially being from jamaican descent. The shows were good for the most part with sprinkles and donkey giving good entertainment. Rooms were ok. Really close to airport. A la carte dining however was not a good experience. The food was good but service was not so spelndid […] because of a party of 20 they sat but only had two people waiting on that party and several other tables. Took us 40 mins just to get out fruit punch. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean, friendly, relaxing vacation. Food and drinks were good and plentiful. A nice play to stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"NICE! Close to the beach, airport, & attractions"
I really enjoyed the entire ten day vacation. The staff was pleasant and the food was delicious. The entertainment was great too. Overall, I had a great experience at Royal Decameron.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel on the beach, near airport!"
Loved this hotel. Stood in room 109 on the first floor, next to the pool. Steps away from the beach. We loved the overall experience. Minutes away from the airport. Lots of security in the hotel. Felt very safe. Would definitely stay here again. Its not a fancy hotel, a little dated, but clean. Saw a lot of workers maintaining the property. The food […] at the buffet could be improved. Great to unwind and relax. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
RDMB was a nice stay. It was approx 10 min from the airport and the coming and going of the airplanes was no problem. The food and drinks was good, plus the beach cookout was enjoyable. Their was nightly entertainment with the staff that also got some of the guest involved. Outside of the property was the hip strip where you could buy items from the […] locals, a mini grocery store and a couple of restaurants at the end of the hip strip. The room were plain but very clean as well as the property being well maintained. The view from the balcony was very nice. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to beach and that's all."
No shuttle, no Internet, excrpt what is purchased from the desk at 20 US dollars per day, a and you you have to use it in the hotel lobby, have terrible food choices, not enough utilization of the beautiful ocean for activities and equipment for the guests. They have 4 or 5 kayaks, 2 paddle boats, one not functional, and any other activity is provided […] (at an exorbitant rate) by people not affiliated with the Decameron and cannot come on to the property. If we utilize these sports, then I question the insurance/medical coverage. I have stayed at the Decameron twice, and now I am completely cured, no need to go back. I have to say I will not be recommending this to anyone. The security crew was always in place though. The dining room staff was always accommodating. Kudos to them. Oh yeah, no life vest for anyone over 120 lbs. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"OK for party people. Not for relaxation"
A/C did not work. We switched rooms and the water pressure in the shower kept getting low. Hotel need to do something about the flies hovering around the food.Genuine Expedia guest review
"This hotel is ok if watching budget"
The pool was great & fairly clean. The food there was just okay. I really wish they provided at least one place to eat that was air conditioned. The bartenders at pool very friendly & quick to serve you, Eleisha at the pool bar was simply awesome!! However the middle court bar not so much. The servers there were more concerned with their friends or […] other staff they would talk to & we felt service was not that great there. I think they did not understand this was inclusive & gave impression unless they were tipped a fair amount they didn't want to really wait on you very quick. My husband & I did additionally tip the people who were exceptional here & there but we felt we couldn't do it all the time as this was understood to be included & should be our choice. The public beach was on the side where at times people lingered on side of fence but security was great so you will be fine. The hip strip off resort was fun but challenging if you did not want your hair braided, look at their market ,etc so you will be hounded to buy things so be prepared. Overall the front desk staff were decent the bellhop Denton was exceptionally friendly, the majority of rest of staff not that welcoming & didn't seem to want to go that extra mile if you needed something .

"Nice hotel close to the beach"
When we first arrived after having the reservations for two rooms months in advance, we were told there was a problem at the hotel and we would be sent to another hotel. Having read about this in a review, we insisted we weren't leaving and were given the last two rooms on the worst wing. The room was ok but we felt that security was an issue especially […] with young adults who went out partying until after hours. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"3 star hotel close to airport. Kid friendly"
Pros - Wait and entertainment staff were great! Spacious rooms Clean hotel Enough space on property so you don't feel cramped Beautiful beach views Close to airport Kid friendly Cons- Front desk staff- rude, had wrong reservation info for multiple people (including myself) Food- not a big variety. It was ok- and your typical resort food. Bed was too […] soft for me and a little lumpy. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good Hotel some staff!!!!"
All other staff at this hotel were great! However the staff members (including the Manager), I encountered at the front desk were rude. They lack people skills and as such had difficulty being polite to guest when checking in or out. If it were for the other staff - housekeeping etc I would return to this hotel but to encounter the front desk workers, […] I would not go back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice atmospher"
Although coming to the hotel it was not what I was expecting from looking at it on the outside. but once i entered, it was totally different. The entry way was beautiful, i was greeted by staff with a nice, cool drink, the staff was friendly, the room was great. The food was amazing and the overall experience was worth while.Genuine Expedia guest review
"For inexpensive stay within walking distance of Mo"
For an all inclusive it was all you expect in the price range. Live entertainment every evening was good and you didn't need to leave the property. Food was good, lot's of it. Primarily Caribbean style cuisine which was just fine for me. It is not a 5 star hotel so be prepared for the glitches of a lesser hotel, nothing major, nothing upsetting, just […] be patient. Only detractor was the insect fogging early, early morning. If it didn't come into the room I wouldn't have minded or probably even noticed. It is necessary I'm sure but I got headaches until I realised I needed to breath through a towel while they fogged. With that solution, no problems Mon. As a necessary point I would stay there again.

"Wonderful All-Inclusive with Superior Service"
The Royal Decameron is a diamond in the rough. We ended up here as a result of The Ritz-Carlton closing and were so happy that we did. The resort is beautiful, centrally located to everything in Montego Bay, has wonderful food and excellent service from staff. Water sports were amazing and included. If you wanted to you could stay in the hotel and enjoy […] your vacation there the entire time. We chose to do some off property excursions and the travel agent was extremely helpful. One helpful tip is to definitely bring your own mug since the drinks, although strong, are served in small glasses and you will be making many trips to the bar. Only negative comment was on the shower temperature and pressure. It sometimes would remain hot then go cold and sometimes would not turn hot for quite some time. We figured out after the first few days that our friends who were directly above us were the cause of the changes. When we showered at the same time as them the temp. and pressure changed. I would definitely return to this hotel and are planning our next trip soon. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"We Loved It"
My husband and I enjoyed our stay. We really liked being able to leave the hotel and go for a walk in town. The food at the hotel is to die for. It was delicious and bountiful.

"Casual and clean"
There were many options to choose from on the property including beaches, snorkeling, eating, drinking and planned activities if you choose. The front desk staff could have been more courteous but the other employees were nice and helpful. Food was tasty and really loved the Jamaican rum. Some of the shows at night were a little cheesy for our tastes. […] Overall we had a relaxing, comfortable vacation. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Couple mini vacation"
This hotel was OK. My wife and I just wanted a quiet, relaxing few days on the beach after doing some work out in the country (st Elizabeth) for a week. It was the cheapest one on the hip strip in mo bay so we stayed there. I guess for the price it wasn't too bad. Our first room was small and a little dingy but we had to move bc the AC wasn't working. […] Our second room was a little bigger and nicer so the switch worked out well for us :) The food was OK. Nothing spectacular but also not bad. In my experience the food is never top notch at smaller resorts. Only one restaurant besides the main buffet meant very limited options but the buffet was fine so I didn't mind too much. Drinks were strong! The bartenders will definitely try to get you drunk. They really try to facilitate a party atmosphere with the drinks, music, and entertainment. A little intense for us as we were just trying to relax but with a group of friends it would probably be more fun. Definitely not that romantic of a place. Water was beautiful but the beach is really narrow and there are sections where there is no beach. They had some fun stuff to do in the water, including water trampoline, kayaks, paddle boats, wind surfing, snorkeling equipment. Always had plenty of chairs and even hammocks which was nice.

They tried to send us to the sister hotel because they said they overbooked. Don't agree to go they have plenty of rooms.

"Wonderful Fun Place"
This is an older place but is kept up very nicely, if you are looking for luxury then my advice is go somewhere else but for comfort, cleanliness, fun, great food, and relaxation you can not beat this place for the price, the staff was great and made it fun for all, we would definitely go back, as a matter of fact hated to leave perfect for us, this […] is a smaller resort but yet big enough to have everything you need inside, and don't have to stand in lines at all just to get food etc. so yes loved it and would definitely go back! Our thanks goes out to Chocolate, Dr. Drey, Sprinkles, Pepper, and the others who made it a blast for all of us and also all the bartenders you guys ROCK!! look for your Tennessee hillbilly friends to come back in a year or so.
