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.

I went to RD with a large group for a wedding, after a 10 hour flight we were relieved when we saw how beautiful the hotel was! The beach is always clean and there is always something going on. The staff were all very happy and helpful, there was always something going on during the day (beach competitions, water balloon dropping comps, swimming races, and loads more!) I cannot stress enough how lovely all of entertainment staff were, great with kids and adults aswell as making sure everyone was happy and putting on fantastic and hilarious shows at night which heavily included the guests. The place was extreamly tidy and the rooms were beautiful. Each day after the room had been cleaned the towels were left on the bed in a stunning swan shape! The food was great with a wide and different range of foods to choose from. I felt very safe and secure whilst staying here. A brilliant family holiday! I would absolutely love to return here and I HIGHLY recommend it, don't listen to any negative comments. Favorite holiday by far!!More

Not what we expected!
We booked a cottage as it was a 40th birthday but we were given a room, near the quiet pool, which was lovely, with 4 rooms but we were right on the outskirts of the hotel and this was to become a nightmare for us as in our second week our room was broken into and cameras and phones etc were stolen and the hotel really didn't want to know, it was only the customer relations lady who cared and she called the police, who were very annoyed with the hotel security for not calling them them the night we were robbed and waiting till the next day! The other British and American travellers were fantastic and a real tonic the next couple of days but we felt unsafe and the lady at customer relations moved us to the Riu in Montageo Bay with our friends and from there on we had a lovely time but we won't be going back to Jamaica anytime soon and that's a shame as its a beautiful country!

I am convinces the people who give this run down place called a hotel anything resembling a good rating were either not paying attention or simple dont mind staying in dirt. The property overall is not bad but the rooms and the service is absolutely nothing to talk about. I stayed there with my wife and we went into a room filled with all kinds of dirt and this is after searching several rooms to come up with one that was acceptable.we went there and saw streets of dirt on the bathroom door ,dirt all over in the shower and a streak of filthbon the toilet bowl. We observed the director smoking rite below the no smoking sign.except for one girl most of the staff we encountered looked really demotivates and that came out in their service. The food sucks sucks sucks More
I usually don't post on TripAdvisor as I understand that every negative review effects the hard-working staff employed. However, this place is absolutely awful. Please see my bullets below: 1) No Wi-Fi. It's 2014! And no, I don't consider 1 hour of spotty Wi-Fi in the hotel lobby for $5(!!) sufficient. 2) Bugs in the rooms 3) Stray cats and a rat spotted throughout my stay 4) Moldy showers and bathrooms 5) Terrible food 6) Ignorant entertainers...these guys start at 9am and don't stop til late each night. They must feel like celebrities because they are constantly on the mic. It's annoying and just obnoxious. 7) Many staff are extremely aggressive in trying to get tips. I'm one that has no problem tipping when warranted but if you ask before doing a service... 8) Needs new management. This place is in a great area but in desperate need for a face lift. All in all, spend your money elsewhere because this place is a nightmare.More

My husband and I went to Runaway Bay for a relaxing break. This is our second time in Jamaica that's why we went back. We find the Jamaicans so friendly and helpful. When we arrived we found our cottage, so beautiful and so close to the beach with its own bar . On a night time when the sun went in we would have a few drinks from the bar and take them to our cottage as it was so close to the bar. The food was nice and there was a bar which was called the swing bar. A must to go there, they have proper swings around the bar, loungers and patio sets so you can chill all day. At the swing bar there is also a restaurant and it opens at midnight so you can have burgers chips, omelettes , sweets etc when you come from the night club at night and every where is closed. We both recommend this holiday and will defo be back ourselves. There are four beaches which all join on to each other so you can pick where you want to be in the beautiful sun. If anyone else would like to know anything before booking here please contact me. Enjoy your holidaysMore
