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.

An Enjoyable Trip!
Just returned from a fabulous holiday with my family at the Royal Decameron Hotel, Jamaica. Spent 2 weeks whilst celebrating a wedding ( mid August 2015). I was fortunate to reside in a cottage which was very cosy and appropriate for the stay. Staff were always pleasant, (some more than others) and most were prepared to go the extra mile. The food was a strong feature. A good representation of cultural dishes from across the globe. Each day there was a special theme day such as Asian and Jamaican. My favourite meals were at breakfast and on Jamaica nights. However, there were Jamaican dishes on offer on a daily basis. Fresh fruit, pastries and live stations were very popular with the guests. My family and took great advantage of the native dishes - delicious! Cocktails were to die for...The barmen and ladies were very professional and took the time to ensure there was a generous measure of rum in each glass! Shout out to Damien, Jerome, Donte and Lenworth - those guys did a great job behind the bar! Entertainment was hilarious - the team made sure all guests had an enjoyable time. Though it is really down to personal taste. Respect to Birdman, Freestyle, Lady Empress, Shante, Barbie & Tash! Water sports and additional activities were on offer and the sailing was thrilling! The gym, tennis court and basket ball hoops kept my family busy. I also took advantage of the cycling excursion which was an opportunity to see the local community near the hotel. This lasted for 45 min - an hour which was perfect given the temperatures. Additional excursions (further afield) were plentiful - easily organised by the hotel or holiday reps. There were a couple of issues that needed to be addressed but this was quickly resolved by the professionalism of the manager (a very cool guy) and the reception team. They were efficient and offered a good service. Big up Dwayne! In summary the Decameron is a true three star hotel and deliveries what it says on the tin. The staff work incredibly hard to ensure guests have an enjoyable time. It is ideal for families and is adequate for couples. If I ever return to JA, I will certainly join the large numbers of returnees to the Royal Decameron Hotel. Thank you! More
What a wonderful holiday!
Just returned from a brilliant family holiday at the Royal Decameron Club Caribbean Hotel, Runaway Bay, Jamaica. Spent 11 nights with my husband and 2 children whilst celebrating a wedding (August 2015). We were in cottage 71 which was very cosy and appropriate for the stay. Staff were always pleasant, and many were prepared to go the extra mile. The food was a particular favourite. There was an array of cultural dishes from across the globe. Each day held a special theme days such as Asian or Italian. My favourite were Jamaica nights. My daughter ADORED the pancake station. You could even have 'heart healthy' omelettes (egg whites only) made fresh in front of you. Fresh fruit, pastries and live stations were very popular with the other guests too. I must mention a wonderfully hardworking waiter: Speedy aka Aldein. Simply, one of the hardest working staff and so polite, to boot. Thank you, Speedy - really should call him F1/Formula One( served us with such speed and efficiency. Brilliant. Now for the cocktails... There were plenty to choose from even if you wanted non alcoholic drinks. It was refreshing to see fresh fruit and quality ingredients being used.The barmen and ladies were very professional and took the time to ensure there was a generous measure of rum in each glass! Special mention to Damion, Jerome, Donte and Lenworth - those guys did a great job behind the bar! Entertainment was hilarious - the team worked so hard to ensure all guests had an enjoyable time. Big up to Birdman (an excellent entertainer and a gentleman - showed genuine concern when I felt unwell), Freestyle, Lady Empress, Shante, Barbie & Tash! And for Captain T, who managed to make me, who is totally afraid of swimming etc, at ease on his catamaran:THANK YOU! Loved sailing, as did my son and sister who went several times! In summary the Decameron is a superb three star hotel with elements of a four star. The staff work incredibly hard to ensure guest have an enjoyable time. It is ideal for families and is suitable for couples. I must finally mention our wonderful First Choice rep Amaryllis (spelling??) who so ably and efficiently took care of our needs and enquiries. Such a credit to the company. Thank you. My husband and I are considering returning to the Decameron to renew our vows in a few years time. It's a destination we loved and would love to revisit. Thank you!More
Overall this was a good resort. The beds and pillows were comfortable and the rooms and grounds were well-maintained and clean. The food was delicious, and the resort tried to include local dishes as much as possible. The only downside to the resort was the fact that everything stopped at 5 pm. All the pools were closed, restaurants, equipment rental etc. Until dinner at 630, there was no food availiable, and no entertainment or activities until 930.More
Just got back from a week long stay, will do at least ten days next time. Had a lovely cottage at the far end of the beach , close to the booze liner bar. Ok some cottages could do with updating, but only really need a lick of paint. It does not distract from the Jamaican feel. Rooms were spotlessly clean and very spacious. The food was varied and there was always something for everyone. The Jetty Bar is the best place to chill in an evening , just be careful with the rum, large measures are the order of the day ! During the day, check out the Adult only quiet pool. Patricia sure knows how to make a cocktail, Yah Man. The location is superb. The waiting staff at meal times always greet you with a smile , although the majority of the bar staff are a little ignorant , almost as if serving you is an inconvenience. The biggest disappointment had to be the Seafood restaurant . Pre heated veg and over cooked steak ! Not a Prawn in site ! The Fish claimed to be in a Red Thai sauce that was actually just powdered chip shop curry. The Steak was over cooked and unpleasant. The best thing about this Restaurant was the walk out. Far better food can be had in the Buffet restaurant . Unfortunately you cannot really go for a walk around the local shops without being hassled . A quick No man doesn't seem to work, with locals offering you smokes and Taxis to u known destinations. The Ground staff like to chat and spend time with you, even offering some " Bob Marleys " should you fancy them. All in all , a great holiday, pretty near perfect.More
Laid Back Holiday
We stayed in cottage 123 it was close to the beachfront on left side of the property. I loved the privacy of the cottage, the staff was warm and friendly. The food was good for this type of property. I have stayed at 5 star resorts before and I actually liked this one even though I've seen bad reviews but thought i would give it a shot and i was not disappointed. Its not posh, but it wasn't a waste of my money at all. The beach was always clean and garden areas are very nice. lovely view of the beach and safe to walk at night. It was quiet were stayed and we enjoyed that.More
