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.

Royal decameron club runaway bay.
We were guests here from December 7th to 14th 2016. I loved the place immediately. We were greeted by friendly reception staff and although our room was not ready, we were invited for drinks and lunch in the dining room or on the terrace. I thought the food was great, being a veggie myself narrows down the menu a bit but there was always a huge range of salads, pasta and rice on offer and a sandwich/ pannini / pizza bar at lunch. Meat and fish lovers like my other half , were not disappointed with much choice of Jamaican style dishes, roasts and stews. The waiter and bar service was very good. All were polite, friendly and looked very smart. I loved the little cute bungalows that housed us for the week. Ours was located in the gorgeous gardens just a hop away from the beach. We had a giant life size chess board just across from our garden. The whole complex was kept spotlessly clean and tidy. Even the beach. There was a small problem with washed up seaweed in the bay but the beach cleaners did their best to remove what they could. The weather was typical for the time of year, a mix of beautiful sunshine with a couple of cloudy days and some rain. However, there was still plenty to do. In my opinion the entertainment was great. The animation team went out of their way to ensure all who wanted to have fun and join in did so. They were never off duty! There were dance acts and acrobats as guests, singers too, every night, all very talented, and if that wasn't enough you could go into the onsite night club called roots and boogie your socks off to massive tunes until the early hours or in my case until the all inclusive cocktails had taken effect! I could go on and on, but I won't. If you are wondering, go and visit. You won't be disappointed.More
It was okay, while it wasn't horrible I was disappointed compared to other similar resorts with the same number of stars and pricing. Room was right by the stage so quite loud. Lots of stray cats hanging out. Due to the layout of the cottages you will need to pay for an oceanside room if you want to see the water. The restaurant staff were all pleasant. We snuck our servers some well deserved tips but they seemed nervous to accept. The food at the buffet was fine. Hot foods were hot and cold ones kept on ice. I saw staff out checking temperatures on multiple occasions. Only tried one a la carte, we had a few bites, thanked our server then went to the buffet. It wasn't terrible, just okay and we knew that Jamaican night at the buffet would be better. We went to the disco one night but it was too loud for us to enjoy and there was only one other couple there also looking like they might leave soon. Don't bother getting in touch to say that it's a birthday, anniversary or other special occasion. It won't matter here unless you are purchasing a package like for a wedding. Vegetarian & vegan friends, on Asian night there is a veg stir fry along the cooking station side where meat is usually served so you may miss it. Be aware that on BBQ night the smell is very strong, avoid walking near the hot tables. The odour will get onto your clothing. A la carte restaurants will not customize anything for your needs. You can opt to have items left off of your plate if you wish. We found the typical assumption that veg people only eat pasta and salad to be what we were expected to be happy with. I can't really recommend this place to you on the food side. I've stayed at Royal Decameron Montego Beach also and comparing them, RMDB wins hands down. Similar pricing, much closer to the airport, great snorkeling, and I found both the food and staff to be better than Club Caribbean. YMMVMore
new years holiday
This hotel is ok but i would say its a 3 star. Lovely place and very friendly. Cottages were basic but nice, bathrooms need up dating big time. Food: was very repetive and was never hot just warm. The coffee at the bar was always lukewarm. staff very happy and worked really hard, they really need a mention, especially Ordetta, and Adrian who was at the eggs station. beach: was beautiful and kept clean at all times. i think the rooms should have coffee and tea facilities, it would be nice to wake up to a cuppa. Also the lighting at night could be brighter as i found it quite dark at night getting back home. Also the wifi is really expensive and not free as advertised so be warned. shuttle bus to ochio only runs once a day at 9.30 at $10 for 2 hours this i feel should be a free and more regular service like other hotels. overall we had a fantastic stay but could be much better if could be addressed as this resort is a lovely place for families.More
Expected to much
Always remember this hotel is only a 3star!! Visited in late November to December, weather was very hit and miss, the beach was not for us, lots of seaweed and very rough water(hence nobody in the sea) and dirty.Hotel itself was very dated, if you had a good shower you were lucky as the water only trickled and constantly went from burning you to freezing you, our room was not clean and everyday we would look to see if the cob webs and dirt was still there and it was, the gardens were very well looked after and the staff were all very friendly. The food was good and plenty of it. The pool was not clean so never swam the whole 2 weeks. Out side the hotel you would get hassled badly but if you visit Jamaica then you know your going to be offered a smoke for a past time. Dunn falls was great and nine mile was worth travelling to Jamaica because there you see the real Jamaica. I'm glad we have been to Jamaica but will not be returning but if we ever do then Negril would be the place as I've been told by many that the south side of the island is so different. But again this is only a 3star !! More
royal decameron club caribbean
went for a one week all-inclusive. was pretty much as expected for a 3 1/2 star. grounds were really nice with tons of different fruit/nut trees. buffet food was actually decent for a smaller resort. caribbean ala carte was good - thai ala carte was terrible. bar drinks were cheap booze but again typical for a 3 1/2 star. only other thing that was disappointing was the beach/ocean was rocky so you needed water shoes to go in ocean. the grounds did have 2 pools so we just went there instead.More
