The room was larger than expected the entertainment staff made our stay awesome the daily activities were also very good special thanks to princess empress and birdman there is another one but i forget his name scooby i think. the food was good but that restaurant upstairs needs work awful service. otherwise all was good i would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I am disappointed with the fact that the location did not have many activities geared towards catering solely to the attention and entertainment of the kids. Secondly, the bathrooms in the cottages were not up to par. They were broken tiles and it in general made the ambiance uncomfortable. Also after comparing rates received with others in the vicinity […] it was realized that I could have gotten a more reasonable rate elsewhere with more kids friendly setting.

"Good Place to Stay"

"Nice comfy hotel by the beach"
I found this hotel to be quite affordable, welcoming with friendly staff. The rooms were comfortable and the food was okay, but there wasn't much fruit variety. All in all i found the hotel to be a very good one for the cost with a very efficient staff, food, liquor and entertainment..Genuine Expedia guest review
I was bored to death. Notthing much to see or do. I have notthing more to add to this review.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Decameron Runaway Bay Vs Decameron Montego Bay"
The booking was done for the Runaway Decameron Hotel. Staff was great but the room we were given was not up to standard (R6) it was small and some of the furniture were deplorable. was not royal We had a talk with the hotel manager and were upgraded and transferred to the Montego Bay Decameron Hotel. This was an entirely different experience, great […] from check in to check out. The rooms were much better everything worked. food and staff excellent. WE WILL BE VISITING AGAIN.

"Entertainment was good. Very relaxing and private."
I have stayed at least 3 times. The internet was taken over by the young children and there should be more consideration of guests who are adults. This was not good. Also since it was without cast, people came from other resorts and used the internet by their own admission to me. Guests using internet should be screened by their room key. The exercise […] personnel were excellent and cared about what you did and made sure that you knew how to use the machines. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Home Away from Home"
I went to the Royal Decameron to host my wedding. The wedding was awesome, but it does take a lot of hard work and preparing before you come down. The staff is top notch- they treated my family and myself like family and their is nothing better than feeling at home, especially when you are so far away from home. In fact most of the people who vacation […] there stay for at least 2 weeks- some stay for a month. The nightly entertainment was some of the best we've seen at any resort. The food was positively delicious and not lacking. It was so good that family members staying at a neighboring all-inclusive hotel bought day passes at least 3 days in a row Just to dine at this hotel. If you want a place to have fun, to be a big kid, to run around, eat, sleep and play, this is the place for you. This hotel is not overly fancy, the courtyard rooms are a little father away from the action; the cabanas are really nice, close to the action and give you the privacy you may need. The location puts you really close to tourist attractions like Margaritaville and Dunn's River Falls. The only thing I didn't like were the wrist bands- not only were they annoying because you can't take it off but it lets all the locals know you are a tourist too- and the tourist prices for things are way different than the local prices.

"It was pleasant. The food was good and couteous"
It was nice. The staff was professional and courteous. The room was a bit disappointing. The safety deposit box did not work. The AC wasn't working on arrival and two of us was in my room. However, there was only one shampoo and shower gel. The map of the grounds was not true. I was looking for the cricket field but there was no longer any. I love the […] surroundings, the club and the water sports. I think you should have more healthy food for health conscious persons like brown rice for example. I dont eat white anything but their was no brown rice or healthy pastries. Just salads. I was also disappointed that their was no wifi available in the rooms. In this day and age, its backwards not to have that. For that reason alone, I wont stay at this hotel for my honey moon though it was nice. My business colleagues said they wont stay their either if their is no wifi in the rooms and on the grounds. My partner could not get any work done because of that lack and that internet cafe was not convenient for him to work. As a Jamaica, I think the club dj could improve somewhat but overall, it was a good experience and I would recommend this hotel to friends who are not obsessed with having internet all the time like I and most of my friends am. The price was reasonable too Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Best hotel I stayed at in a long time!!"
Rooms were excellent, cozy and just plain awesome. The staff were very friendly, hospitable and really made the trip extremely enjoyable. The food was off the chain...not to mention the constant flow of adult beverages. My children had non-stop entertainment, fun and games. The beach on the property was serene. I am already planning my next vacation […] there for the Christmas holiday! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Best vacation on a budget!"
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience at this hotel. From check-in to check-out, the entire experience was a pleasant surprise. We would normally be attracted to 5-star hotels, but this year we were working with a strict budget. We went with no expectations and thought we would make the best of it. The hotel staff were so pleasant! They have some very […] interesting characters on the entertainment crew who made our stay loads of fun. The idea of cottages on the beach is brilliant, however, our room needed some improvements. While clean, it was a bit "old" and "dreary" , we didn't spend much time inside. There are also patches in the door and roof. When they sprayed for mosquitoes & bugs, the smell came through and was trapped in our cottage. The food in the buffet hall was delicious! Flavor and variety were all present. The Thai restaurant was very disappointing. We should have stuck with the buffet hall, which never disappointed. The seating is also better in the main area as you can choose seating that overlooks the sea.There is a bar with individual swings and chairs right on the ocean, we drank wine and stayed out there at night. There is also a club but we were the only interested guests. The beaches are small but so beautiful. There are 4 small coves to choose from. We spent all day on the beach and it was so relaxing! The ocean breeze and sound of the waves are all you need to get away from the corporate world. Fun Vibes! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"We love the Decameron"
Another super stay. We live in Jamaica and were going on a long flight, so it was nice to stay there before leaving from Montego Bay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My husband and I had a wonderful experience at this resort! The staff were all very friendly and courteous from the moment we stepped onto the resort. We stayed in cottage number 35 and it was right by the adult pool which was great! The cottage was lovely and clean. The resort has something for everybody. The only complaint I have is the food at the […] buffet. The breakfast buffet was delicious, especially the made to order omelets! The lunch and dinner buffet was lacking at times. The Jasmine Delta was always our backup plan where you could get burgers, hot dogs, beef patties and pizza. The a la carte seafood restaurant was just ok. The food selections weren't all that great but edible. That is one area the resort really needs to improve in. Overall we had a wonderful experience and would revisit.

"Power outage outrage"
Electricity was out all day and most of the night. That means no blended drinks, no real entertainment, no a/c, but plenty of mosquitos, since you are forced to keep windows open, which are not screened. Had to ask for candles so that I could find my wat to the room. Staff unsympathetic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"We thoroughly enjoyed my mother's birthday!"
This was my 3rd time at Royal Decameron Club (once in 2012 and twice this year). The first time, it was just my husband & I. The 2nd time, we went with friends, and this time, we went with my mom and sister. We stayed three nights and had a great time. We got involved in water aerobics & beach volleyball, we danced the night away each night, we even […] used the pedalo (something I'd never done before). The staff was just great - very accommodating from the very beginning. I wish I could remember everyone's names: Fitzroy, Jerome, Devon, Dave, Janice, Birdman, Scooby, the front desk staff and everyone else bent over backwards to ensure we had a nice vacation. Of course, we'll be back again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great cottage style"
I had a very warm and inviting time at Royal Decameron Club. They are doing some renovation work on the side I started out on which was a little disturbing the first two days. I went to mgmt to request movement to another space. The hotel mgr was extremely accommodating in finding me another room on the opposite side from where I was initially located. […] The staff was very responsive. The cottages give you a warm, intimate feeling. It's quite different from being in the larger hotels. I would definitely return again and bring my family.

"A Royal Gem"
My husband and I stayed here July 12-17 and my only complaint is that I had to leave to come back home!! The staff were all so kind and happy-eager to help in any way they could and always with a smile!! We stayed in a garden cottage #55- just 3 back from the lobby-never had a problem with the noise. The cottages are basic but clean and comfortable. […] Housekeeping does a great job-left towels in shapes of animals on bed daily along with fresh flowers. Don't see how anyone could complain about the food-it was all fresh and delicious with a different assortment daily at the buffet. The specialty restaurants were also great with terrific service!! Lots of activities- snorkeling, paddle boats, kayaks, tennis, swimming- there is also a gym on site and lots of other activities. We also took a catamaran ride from the hotel to Dunn's River Falls-they pick u up at the hotel on the beach- there is an open bar with lots of rum drinks- for 80 per person. It lasted about 5 hours and well worth the price. The falls were beautiful!! I can't forget the ENT(entertainment crew).-they were the BEST!! Princess, Tommy, Candie, Cassie, Baby Rasta and Birdman- I miss y'all!! Awesome bartenders too- Fitzroy, Wayne, Devon, Marvin, Kishawn, Ryan-just to name a few. Also Tamara who books the excursions-she was great!! Can't wait to go back-had a few tears when it was time to leave!! Can't say enough great things about this resort!!

Overall everything was nice.. Food was great staff was friendly.. The room isn't no 5 star room but it was simple and nice.. When I return I will differently stay there againGenuine Expedia guest review
It was okay, the staff was great especially the bartender Jerome. The entertainment was great and all the activities. But the need to have a list of phone number on a fully sheet in the rooms not a car, instruction how to call other rooms without call the operator. They need to provide more food choice for young kids, my daughter hated the food in the […] dining room, did not eat but in the grill area. But my overall stay was not bad and with a few adjustment I would return there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a good hotel, the stuff is very nice, the hotel is a little run down and the beach could be a little better but over all for the price it was great. It is not a 5 star hotel, so do not expect 5 star place. But the entertainment team is killing it, great fun guys! We had a good time, first time in Jamaica.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to public transportation"
I was so excited about this trip with my SO. Alas, by the end of the weekend both were no more - the SO and the excitement. Wide variety of food but nothing tasted well - undercooked or overcooked; snack grill was just lame, small room, clogged toilet, insufficient toiletries, little privacy, little to do, and an almost claustrophobic feel to the place. […] I much preferred last year's stay at the other Decameron. Staff appeared to be trying and were quite friendly however I will not be returning to this resort.

"We love the quite and the cottages are very unique"
Overall for the price it was good. We had a few problems with desk clerks, some not so nice and hardly smiled. I love smiles and it was really hard for some of the ladies behind the check in counter. The one young man was awesome and always very helpful, ladies not so much. We had one night that the music from the streets was very loud and it was late […] into the night. The desk people didn't really want to bother with it but we finally got the young man to call police. It was very disturbing and I think that the resort should see about doing something so this does not happen again. We also had one day after our rooms had been cleaned that we came in to a very hot room. She, (maid), had turned the air off and opened the windows. We left a note for her and she did not turn the air off again. We really love the resort and the staff in the kitchen and those cleaning the grounds, they do an awesome job. For a nice quite, relaxing vacation we love this little resort. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Small Pool. Great beach. Great staff"
Had a great visit. Great value. Food at the Thai restaurant was not great but didn't taste bad. Buffet which we do not really love was very good.

"very nice hotel"
Celebrated my third wedding anniversary here and did not regret it. The beach was great but couldn't swim because of rocks in the water. Food was good and staff was very friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
My stay at the hotel was for 3 nights only on this visit and it was my last 3 nights of a month's holiday on the island. The rooms were clean (I booked 2 rooms for the family), but the cottages need some updating. The staff at reception, the cleaners, the gardeners, restaurant and bar staff were all polite. It is the rainy season, so I got drenched […] in the rain a few times whilst travelling to and from each cottages and to and from the restaurant. I love the atmosphere, the privacy, peace and tranquility at this hotel. I had a wonderful time on the island and cannot wait to return there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great time at Decameron"
We had a great time. The staff were friendly, the food was good, we swam in the pools, and had a relaxing time. The wind was blowing so water activities were out, but other than it was a good experience. We live in Jamaica and love to go on small get-away stays on island. We tried the Thai restaurant and enjoyed it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We enjoyed our stay!"
This was our second time at Royal Decameron Club. Since the last time we were here, the food, alcohol and quality of the beach have improved. The entertainment is still teetering - why have people come all the way to Jamaica and play no good reggae chunes????Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We'd gladly stay here again!"
We arrived on Saturday and stayed til the next Sunday. Our stay was not nearly long enough, by our own admission, but the time that we stayed there was split between two shifts of workers, and two different groups of visitors. The first few days were shared with down-to-earth people (both islanders and visitors) who truly gave our vacation a down home […] feel. We enjoyed the beach, the pool, the entertainment, the food...a truly relaxed atmosphere. Loved the individual cottages! However, when the weekend rolled around, the influx of tourists who didn't seem as personable brought our visit to a drab of a close. We had gotten to know the first crew earlier in the week on a first name basis, but by the time the weekend came, the crews changed out and we didn't feel like we knew very many of them before leaving. The bartenders (Ezzy, Damion x2, Fitzroy, Renee, Ollisha, to name a few) were awesome. The lifeguards (Rico and Kyle) were very sweet and caring. The housekeepers (Angella and Carmelita) were kind and gentle with our things and always left pretty flowers in our rooms. Some of the waiters/waitresses were too busy at times during dinner, and our first night we were desperate for "wata" due to the seasoning of the food, but we'll forgive that minor hiccup and still call it a good experience throughout. Please give our regards to the chefs. They did an excellent job! And I can't forget the Dancin' Man Basil who entertained us at night while folding the napkins! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great for a young couple on a budget!!"
We went here on our honeymoon and had a great time! The food was great and there were quite a few options that were more "Jamaican", which we enjoyed. There is a buffet with a very nice variety. It is a buffet, though, so not all the food is SUPER fresh all the time. There are also 2 a la cart restaurants which are wonderful. The rooms were comfortable […] and we loved having our own hut, rather than a standard hotel room. It felt more private. The pools are lovely. There is a main pool with a bar right next to it, which is where most of the days entertainment is located, so it is kind of loud- but fun. There is also an adults-only pool which is very quiet and also has a bar. Its nice to have that option if you aren't feeling social one day! The beaches feel pretty private and are clean, but I personally prefer big white sand beaches with no underwater plant-life in view. I'm kind of a baby. I mostly stayed in my beach chair, which are plentiful and usually within reach of an umbrella for shade. They offer some water activities, such as kayaks and paddle-boats, which is fun. There is also a staff member who takes guests out for short trips on a small sailboat. Very fun! The staff is amazing. Very helpful, friendly and funny. They will pressure you to join activities, though, so you might want to retreat to the adult pool or the beach if you REALLY don't want to do Beach Olympics. And of course. The alcohol. There is a lot of it and the bartenders would love to give it to you. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Home away from home"
I had a wonderful time. The staff (reception, waiters, chef, bar) were friendly, courteous, professional and very helpful. It was a delight staying in the courtyard room, but next time I am going to try the garden cottages. The entertainment was simply world class. I was blown away. The food was delicious and the dinners in the specialty restaurants […] were out of this world. I loved the Thai restaurant. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
