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.

Simply fabulous .....
Absolutely perfect in every way, had two weeks of total relaxation and planning to return next year. Food was outstanding and staff were friendly and very helpful. Think they are aiming to make this a non smoking resort so bear that in mind as you can only smoke on the beach, otherwise this is a well run resort and loved that you could book the a la carte restaurants as many times as you liked during your stay. Outside disco on a Tuesday night went on until 4am but police did come and sort it. Take American dollars and steer away from Jamaican dollars as we didn't get value for money. Just book and have a fab holiday ðMore

After a long flight/transfer we arrived tired and short tempered, the second we were greeted by Patrick with a huge smile and welcome, it was almost forgotten. The reception staff were all happy and cheerful and made us feel welcome straight away, check in was quick and we were escorted to our beachside hut by Patrick who was friendly and made us laugh. 'Wow' the view was amazing and so was the hut, I will agree with other reviews about it being slightly dated and in need of painting (workmen were painting all beachside huts as we were leaving) It was immaculately clean inside the hut, super kingsize bed, fresh white linen, extra pillows & spare sheet/duvet. We would soon learn that Gwendaline was responsible for the cleaning and did so every day to the highest standards. Again, she was always cheerful, making us laugh and leaving beautiful flowers in our room. The walk in wardrobe was an added bonus and the bathroom was basic but adequate and again spotlessly clean. It's 5 small steps to the beach from the hut and what a fantastic beach it is. It's kept meticulously clean by Raymond who rakes it all day, keeping it beautiful and perfect. (He's also exceptionally cheerful and loves a chat about the history of Jamaica & was very helpful with the many questions we had) About 98% of the staff are friendly, helpful and fun with the exception of a couple of women who served in the buffet. The food was fresh, hot and varied with Jamaican nights being a favorite! Breakfast is fresh eggs, cooked how you like, with bacon and beans, cereals and plenty of everything. There's pasta, pizza, hog roast, chinese style food, home made burgers, 3 potato options, rice, cous cous, roast lamb, 2 fish options, plenty of fresh veg and always several extra meat options .... And of course plenty of jerk chicken! Daily! (I've listed most foods available as I don't understand some of the reviews saying its 'boring' or 'repetitive') There is two extra restaurants that can be booked, we found the service and food good in these, however preferred the buffet. Snacks or food can be got almost any time of the day. The whole complex is beautiful and you can easily walk from one end to the other in 15 mins, it's all on one level so would be great for disabled or older people. This place is for total relaxation and is very quiet so perhaps wouldn't be suitable for 'partying'. However you can't write a review about Decameron without mentioning the entertainment, very funny and something different everynight with Freestyle,Birdman & kino who are crazy and will keep you laughing! Horse riding in the sea was fantastic but get a taxi to Hooves and save yourself paying First Choice a small fortune and pay them direct! Same goes for any trip, just book your own transport and pay a far smaller entrance fee. There are 2 pools, one busy and the other being the 'quiet' pool. Both were cleaned & scrubbed every night and I think this is the reason they're closed at 5pm.... But with beaches like that we didn't even bother with the pools. All in all this place is wonderful and we shall be returning as soon as possibleMore

What a peaceful relaxing Gem
If you want to relax and unwind away from the bigger busier hotels, this is the place. With the individual cottage style accommodation, numerous beach and sun bed areas, garden hammocks and pod swing seats dotted around the gardens and the choice of the adult only pool, you can have as much peace and quiet or not as you like. There is an excellent choice of food (only used the main restaurant, there are 2 Al a Carte restaurants as well) all of which was great tasting and very fresh, be warned leave the diet at home. This is rated a 3 star resort which is probably because they don't have the flash motorized water sports, or the fancy marble bathrooms, but the rooms are clean, air conditioned, the beds are comfortable and for the quality of holiday you do have, the relaxing atmosphere and friendly staff it gets 5 stars all the way from me and my sister.More

Nice resort and Food, but terrible service.
I'm late putting this review in, but it needed to be done, first off this resort is nice...the beach is okay i would rate it 3 out of 5 stars, the pools are terribly small, and in the middle of everything, so if you want to swim late night or some privacy that will not happen, because the pool is right in the middle of the entertainment at night. The staff are surprisingly all different, for example we had the same housekeeper for the entire week we were there and she was amazing, we got to know her by name and she would even clean around us when sometimes we still needed to be in the room, the dining room/buffet staff were great, very friendly and helpful, but the staff at the grill was the worst we have ever had in Jamaica, and speaking as someone who has easily been to Jamaica 50 times plus and stays at a different resort every time...we were not impressed. First of all the walk is a good 15 mins away to the grill and then when you get there, they never have anything on the menu, maybe just hot dogs and hamburgers and they could care less if you want anything or not...the last time we went there they said they only had 1 hamburger and one of us would have to each a hot dog...the crazy thing is...it was only 3pm???? Not like it was night time or something...just rude and totally hating their job and it shows. But the worst treatment we received was from the front desk. The gentlemen that checked us in was so rude and impolite that it seemed he went out of his way to make us miserable...to the point that we had to speak to the GM of the hotel. He definitely did fix some of the issues and he was very pleasant to deal with...but overall the bad taste that that guy left in our minds was enough for us to absolutely hate that resort. We would definitely not go back. However i always write fair reviews, so I will say the room was very spacious and clean, the bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever been in for a Jamaica resort, however we were in one of the cottages upstairs. It was clean and had a balcony and the only issue we had with the room was that there was a lot of street noise and dogs barking until all hours of the morning. Also one morning we were woken up by the front desk at 6am telling us that they needed to fix our air conditioning that we didn't even realize had quit working over night. Again its a shame about the service overall because the resort does have a lot of potential and with a great and accommodating GM ( I can't remember his name I think it might be Leonard) the resort should be getting better reviews but I couldn't overcome the poor service. Also be aware that you do have to pay for WIFI and Safes in the room and the Wifi you can only use on 1 device at a time.More

stayed here for 2 weeks and we loved it. Rooms are basic but very clean. We stayed in hut77 on the beach and it was really nice. Gwendaline and Patrick from house keeping were excellent and really did a good job. The food is lovely and although the service is better in the restaurants, the food is better in the buffet. At the main bar the service can be frustrating especially when they're re-stocking the bar for the evening. The cruise liner bar is the best. The beaches are simply perfect..... Raymond Johnson keeps them looking like paradise, he works really hard and he is always smiling and happy. I recomend the horse riding trip (hooves) it was great and the guys there are friendly. All in all we love this place and will be going back as soon as we can.More
