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.

Great place for relaxing
I recently spent my vacation at club Caribbean and I have to say it was wonderful !! I could really relax ... Beach is amazing , very calm and weather is nice . There is some water games available , like kayaking and some water Bicycle. The only thing I personally didn't like it is there is a lot sea plants in water ... But some people like them so it's ok. The rooms are big and it's very clean .. I had garden view , it was nice it's not very far away from beach and u can also enjoy gardens . My room was nice: I had closet , bathroom , some kind of garden with chairs , one king size bed and some small bed in one side .. Very comfortable . They make rooms every day and and staff is really nice , they are always attentive to our needs . I also enjoyed food , buffet was nice and I also made reservation for those specialized restaurants ( Thai and seafood ) , I like seafood restaurant better . During all day u have access to unlimited drinks Most of the shows during night are nice , they have artists and some games . I can recommend this hotel because during my stay I had great time and have no complains . More
Mid Summer get away
I must say , for the money this resort had everything you can expect. Food was all very good , although not a great deal of choices , we were never hungry and never disappointed with the quality.The bungalows are fun , clean , and large. The beaches well kept , the staff all friendly , and amenities included everything we needed!More
so relaxing perfect setting
Returned 4 weeks ago from here, upon arrival I had my reservations but these were soon changed, staff couldn't do more to make our stay any better.Stayed in an ocean view cottage right on the beach and we were so impressed with the outlook, The beach is raked daily first thing in the morning and is keep spotless, the swing bar on the jetty is a perfect place to enjoy a cocktail or two !. The food in the restaurant is typical jamaican which is what we liked, and there wasn't a childrens area either so there wasn't chips with everything. The hotel is always maintaining some where either painting, waxing, washing and gardening. There is always free sunbeds and you could have 1 each in the sun / shade or down by the shoreline with no need to reserve with towels if you wanted. Whilst there we did the expected Bob Marley trip with Smiley from the desk selling trips at the front of the hotel, it was a brilliant day,cycling down the blue mountains a long day but well worth it for the views and plunging into the waterfall at the bottom,a brilliant trip well worth doing as was the catamaran and climbing the Dunns falls a brilliant day and just has to be done too,, the bob sleigh trip was another fabulous day out with wonderful views whilst relaxing in the infinity pool at the top after an exilerating couple of rides on the bob sleighs, another excursion worth doing is the glistening waters which is amazing, and so weird to see. The animation team at the hotel work so hard and are amazingly fit, there is no pressure to join in unlike many other hotels we have stayed in, but always have time to have a chat with you.The entertainment at night is very enjoyable and varied from singers to dance acts and the team doing games etc. The gardens are very well kept and if you keep your eyes peeled you will see humming birds and beautiful butterfies flying around. Over all a fabulous holiday all round , I can honestly I did not want to come home !.it was so relaxing, the island hotel and people are wonderful and friendly from the cleaners especially Pauline , David in the restaurant to the management and we cannot wait to return. If you get the chance go to Sharkies restaurant just along the road, the food is great and as its right on the beach views are wonderful.If I had to say if any thing let it down was the lack of shopping etc in the area, but there is a regular taxi into Ocho Rios where everything can be found. Fabulous holiday XMore

Reggae, relaxation and Red Stripe!
We visited the RDCC for 14 nights from the 3rd of August. We travelled as a group of 5 with myself, my wife and her parents and my daughter of 15. Check in was quick but on arrival of the two rooms we booked we found that they were on the second floor up two flights of stairs despite our request for ground floor garden cottages. My inlaws have walking and breathing difficulties so this was not an option. When we went back to the reception we were told by Carlos (Manager) that they were fully booked and couldn't give us a garden cottage until the following day so we had to stay one night on second floor rooms (154 and 155 ). Also we requested by email and via Thomson Travel Agents for a fridge in at least one room due to medication requiring to be kept chilled. We were told repeatedly that we would have to pay to have a fridge $5 a day which wasn't a problem, however we never received a fridge and the medication was kept in the fridge at the nurses station. While we were here me and my wife celebrated our Anniversary (6th) and my wife celebrated her birthday(16th). Me and my daughter informed Carlos of the anniversary and told us he would have something for us in the restaurant. We were expecting champagne or a prepared meal but received nothing. Rooms We were moved the following day to adjoining rooms 100 and 101 which were located in the gardens near the Booze Liner Beach area. Rooms were spacious, kept clean however fridge and tea/coffee making facilities would have been nice to use. Bathroom and shower were okay, just little dated. Walk-in wardrobe was large and good for storage (space for suitcases etc) Safe was $2 a night and you were given a lock and a bolt, however in our first rooms the safes were digital. Air con and ceiling fan worked well. Flat screen TV was okay with many English speaking channels. Lighting was a bit dim. Plenty of plug sockets US two pin style. Some of the windows were just mesh with blinds. Maid service came to clean the room and replace dirty towels daily. Beach We spent most days on the Booze Liner Beach area which has around 15 sunbeds with nice soft sand all way into the sea, no water shoes needed for this however not a good spot for snorkelling. Not much seaweed, cleaned everyday by the beach attendants. This area was quiet and had its own bar which opened 10:00-5:00, and also a toilet next to the bar. Antoinette who worked at the bar was a star and knew our drink orders. Breakfast Breakfast was 7:00AM-10:00AM at the Pick-A-Pepper restaurant. There was a variety of breakfast from eggs, omelettes, bacon, cereals, fruit, breads for toasting, pancakes, pastries, cold meats, cheeses plenty for the fussiest of eaters. Service could sometimes be poor, one morning we went to the carts and got our own coffees. Having to steal cutlery and cups from tables had to happen sometimes too. Lunch Again plenty of choice, we usually went to the sandwich bar where you selected your style of bread and fillings, this seemed to be popular. You could have the choice of it being toasted or not. Lunch is 12:00PM-2:30PM at the Pick-A-Pepper. We were here on Independence Day (6th August) where they had Jerk Pork and Chicken cooking and also built a shed for this outside from scratch and had it painted in black green and yellow in two hours!! There was also a pasta station at dinner where you chose your pasta style and sauce. Evening meal The Pick-A-Pepper restaurant opened at 6:30PM-9:30PM. Again wide selection of food to choose from, most nights were themed such as Jamaican, Mexican, Italian with carvery stations, soups, salads, vegetables, fish, meat and fruit, cakes for dessert. Not plentiful for vegetarians (only saw chips on one night) however we would have thought chefs would help you if you needed. Service at evening was poor on most occasions (no point ordering drinks from waiters as you may as well get it yourself) ate a full meal without receiving water one night. Didn't book the A la carte restaurants as we found the buffet was okay. Entertainment At night a singer (either Champagne, Raheem or Coleen) came on at 8:30PM-9:30PM. Champagne was our favourite. One night Birdman and Empress did Bingo. (Where we won a Decameron T-Shirt) ENT Crew are very hard working, talented and have the strongest compatibility and connection we have ever seen in an Animation Team. Birdman, Freestyle, Colours, Empress, Barbie, Vanilla, Orlando and DJ Frost all entertained us nightly. Freestyle and Birdman's banter together was hilarious, one night Birdman jumped off the roof above the stage but Freestyle went one better and backflipped off it! Freestyle also made a bicycle out of children! (you had to see it) "Show Time Part 2" Night time entertainment mainly consisted of audience participation games such as Battle of the Sexes, Mr Rasta Man, Couples, etc. We were too pushed to get involved in these games. Some nights there were outside entertainers such as singers, acrobats, balancing acts (95 year old Rastafarian!). Some nights were the Royal Decameron Dancers. Dunn's River Falls We took swimwear, money, camera and towels. This was our second time climbing the falls as we did this last year. This excursion is really good and a must do as it is quite good for the price depending on your tour guide (we paid $40). The only downfall was that the DVD and pictures were $40 which we thought was too expensive. They would probably sell a lot more at half the price. On our way out there was a stall with photos which were at a cost of $8, even though they were already printed and not many buying. Again, we thought this was too expensive for one photo. There are also many craft markets on your way out. Blue Mountain Downhill Bicycle Tour We took sun cream, water shoes, camera, swimwear, towels and money. This was a full day tour pick up was 7:30AM and returned at 6:00PM, as it is a 2 and a half hour journey there but stopping off for refreshments and restrooms and also knowledgable coach driver Cleve who told us the name of and the history of the area you are driving through. He also shared his terrible jokes and helped the time pass by, and also was a good driver down the 200ft drops at either edge of the mountain. This cost $98 per person. This was also a good value for money as it included your transportation, brunch, lunch and equipment. We had our brunch on arrival. The tour included a coffee demonstration and then the freewheel downhill once you had mastered how to work the pedal brake bikes! After doing this excursion, I think smaller children would struggle controlling the bike as you constantly had to pedal backwards. (as we found out when my teenage daughter fell off) However you could get on the coach if need be. We bought some instant coffee from the gift shop which is very nice. The gift shop was cheaper than airport coffee. After around 45 minutes on the bikes (stopping for views and pictures) we stopped and had lunch at the same place (also has restrooms) which was jerk chicken, rice and coleslaw. After this we had another 45 minutes on the bike and also stopping at a coffee plantation, we then had an icy cold dip in the Fountain of Youth (which was too deep for non swimmers). Clayton, who recorded you on the bikes (paparazzi) and also at the stops, sold the video of your experience and also many images for $55, however after showing apprehension he lowered this to $50. Overall a fabulous family holiday, this is the first time we have returned to a destination (not the same hotel), and the Decameron was brilliant. We love Jamaica as a whole, however we would probably not return to the Royal Decameron. More
We would recommend this hotel in Montego Bay. It walking distance from the hip-strip, where you can dance the night away. Great private beach and they make an effort to ensure the in house night entertainment is exciting and fun. Friendly staff, mostly students and the food, although buffet, is authentic Jamaican food. We all particular liked the fresh fruit and breakfast menu. Ask for a ground floor sea view room, it makes so much of a difference to your stay. My daughter enjoyed participating in the various activities and preferred it to the Holiday Inn which was pitched as being more child friendly. We arranged to spend the second week at the holiday inn, but after two days my daughter and partner asked if we could go back to the Royal Decameron. Some areas for improvement re: power shower; gym but this is not a five star hotel. Reasonably priced and they aim to please. Thumbs up to the Royal Decameron.More
