This hotel offers up cabin-style rooms surrounded by tropical gardens. And it’s just a short stroll from a white-sand beach.
This beachfront hotel’s got a great spot in serene Runaway Bay. It’s a short walk to the town’s restaurants and bars. And at the hotel, accommodation comes in the form of little wooden cottages.
There are sea views from the main pool and the waterfront Asian à la carte. Or you can get a prime shot of the ocean from the cocktail bar. Down at the beach, there’s a range of watersports, too.

Can't beat this place
January was my 2nd time returning to this resort & the private cottages just cannot be beat. Returning to my cottage nightly was like returning home. The staff are so amazing & truly make us feel like family. Big up to Nisha, Odette, Odame, Akeem, Ryan, Danavan, Marty, Hedley, David, Big Mike, Dante, Kendra, Carlotta, Shorty, Zion, Barbara & the rest of the beautiful crew. I will be back again :DMore
THE PLACE TO STAY IN RUNAWAY BAY
Nothing bad to say about this resort,rooms, food,beach all spot on much nicer staying in a detatched bungalow then in a hotel type resort, if you need a car there is a good car hire place across the main road cheaper than the airport.two places you must visit dunns river falls and ricks cafÃ©.More
A little gem of relaxation
We stayed here in December 16, arrived at the hotel after my longest flight ever, was welcomed by reception with a lovely refreshing drink and quick efficient check in, lovely friendly staff and funny! I had contacted the hotel previous to our holiday as I was worried about the reviews and asked if they would put us in a hut nearer the beach, communication was good and we were not dissapointed with our room, Room 79, although one that can be adjoined this didn't prove to be a problem, it was perfect, basic yes, but comfortable and perfect, the only thing I missed was a kettle/tea/coffee but if I went again I would take these with me. The bed was so comfortable, shower great. So, the noise on friday/saturday night, yes we could hear it from the other side of the resort, not the resorts fault, this is happening in the public area, I didn't have a problem with this as I always travel with ear plugs, they worked a treat! Our body clocks were all over the place so we slept early and woke early so it really wasn't a problem. The food in the restaurant was better than I expected, I didn't have one night where I couldn't find something to eat. There isn't chips everyday, you have to go to the other restaurant for these, but what there is is really nice, always chefs re filling and pottering about checking up on stocks. The rice and beans were so nice as was the jerk chicken, omlettes at breakfast were perfect as was the crispy bacon. Fruit was always plentiful. The waiters/waitresses were always friendly and on point for filling your glasses of water and drinks from the bar. Huge thanks to Anna-Jay for making us feel so welcome on our first night explaining how to go about the restaurant and everyday we saw her welcoming us with "hi, how are you my friends from England' loved her, also to Chelsea, she was a delight. We went to the caribean restaurant one night, food was lovely, waiters maybe a bit too attentive for my liking but I much preferred the main restaurant. We didn't stop for the entertainment, preferred to sit by our hut with a rum and chill. I also can't comment on the pool area, we chose to stay by the quiet bays at the end of the resort by the quiet bar, what a perfect place to relax, once you have been here you won't want to stay by the pool, huge love for Odette Palmer who tends to this bar, this lady is a credit to the resort with her friendliness, patience and love for her customers, nothing fazed her, she treated everyone with respect and made our holiday just that bit better. Cocktails from 10am, perfect :-) No problems getting sunbeds although we tended to save ours when we went down for breakfast as we loved where we sunbathed but anywhere on the beaches is good. We did go out of the resort, I worried about this but it really wasn't a problem, we used the nurses station as I had a skin reaction, she sent me across the main road to the chemist to get medication, they were lovely in there, spoke perfect english and even had a joke with me about it not even being summer to have prickly heat. Medication wasn't expensive. We also went to the 2 supermarkets on the front, personally I preferred the one further along the shop fronts but both were friendly and helpful. We used the shop at the resort, always lovely and helpful but I found this really expensive. One thing I did notice is that there are workers constantly cleaning/painting/maintaining the resort, we had a dead branch of a palm tree scraping on our roof, I told reception and within hours it was removed. The cleaning lady was lovely, Angela, she made us welcome and left my husband a lovely note when she saw it was his birthday, always had lovely towel swans with beautiful flowers daily. So all in all my best holiday ever, we didn't see lots of the island but what we did see I have come away blown away by how everyone was so friendly and helpful. Jamaica as a whole is a truly lovely place and the Royal Decameron a jewel. Thank you for such a lovely holiday :-)More
Beautiful beach location
We used this resort as a base in order to visit family. The downside was we were only there for one week. I would certainly return for longer. The chalets are comfortable, spacious and clean, some requiring a little decorating. The water pressure in the shower was a bit low at times but we managed well enough. There's air conditioning and ceiling fans, essential in Caribbean heat. We really liked the set up, that they were individual and not attached or part of a multi storey hotel. The gardens are beautiful and very well maintained. The beach and all areas are constantly cleaned with plenty of different types of loungers. There were sufficient areas to sit quietly or join in poolside entertainment if we felt like it. The staff are friendly, helpful and very hard working. The food was really good, considering the catering was for hundreds of people from all nationalities. I was pleased to be able to enjoy the local cuisine, and couldn't fault any of it. We joined in the aqua aerobics and thoroughly enjoyed it. We also joined in a couple of the games by the pool, all of them good fun and in good taste. We were also able to sit quietly by our chalet, or on the beach or quiet pool areas, so always an option to be private or quiet if that was our choosing, We had a wonderful week. Loved the resort location, and would recommend the resort .More
