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.

There is entertertainment on the complex and a club. Lots to do in the day We are planning to back next year with our friend that we met there, make sure you bring us dollars and jamaican dollars with you.More

visiting hours... are they serious???
If I could have given a lower rating I would. My family was staying at this hotel and the rest of us were staying at another hotel further down the street. Since we were separated, I paid for one full day at this hotel so I spend the day with the majority of my family. The day went well. The food was great, grounds ok and there were average amount activities available. When it was time to leave, another member of our family came to pick me up to go back to my hotel. Upon arriving, I asked the guard if the family member picking me up could say hello to the rest of our family in the lobby before leaving and his response was visiting hours ended at 5:00. I was shocked! I have never heard of any hotel having visiting hours. I even explained that the manager could stand with us in the lobby to watch if he had concerns but they chose to argue with me instead of trying to find a helpful solution. He told us we would have to stand out on the side of the road. I had 15 of my relatives there, plus I paid for a full day here and they would rather put their guests at risk by standing out in the dark road rather than allow them to exchange quick pleasantries in their lobby. NEVER AGAIN! The hotel we were staying (Jewel Runaway) was so much more accommodating and allowed us to do that the very next. Every time I visit Jamaica and stay at resort, I have my family come by and they have all been welcomed in the lobby. I am not blaming the security attendant, he was only following the asinine rules given to him but the manager and General Manager Mr Sinclair were very rude and disrespectful. I suppose you pay for what you get. I would rather spend the extra money and stay somewhere with better customer service.More

Just returned from a two week stay at the Decameron what a beautiful resort, wonderful little cottages for 3 star I thought it was very quaint and clean, maid service everyday. What a great time of year to go very quiet so no waiting for dinner or drinks the weather was up in the 30s. Staff were very friendly we even went to a beach party with a couple of the staff totally looked after us and the staff at the jasmine were lovely can not fault them at all, evening entertainment was good too. We went on three trips, Bob Marley on the zion bus is a must Garey was brilliant very funny he made the trip for us, Also cool runnings to dunns river was fantastic. I would recomend this hotel it is also very close to most of the trips. The beach was raked every morning and really looked after by the beach guys. If you are looking for a chilled out holiday and no fussy about 5 star then this is the place for you. Feel free to ask any questions I will try to answer them for you. We will definitely be returning ASAP.More

Just got back this morning, we had 14 days of absolute bliss. Our cottage by the quiet pool and bar was perfect, the staff are the hotels greatest asset they were wonderful. We have been left with fantastic memories and expanded waist lines. we have never wanted to return to the same hotel as we like to explore, but Royal Decameron deserves a re visit next year, respect Ye MonMore

My partner and I have just had a 2 week holiday at this resort, from the moment of arrival to the moment of departure the holiday was amazing. The staff, from reception staff to hospitality staff, entertainment team to grounds / gardeners were so helpful, polite and informative. It appears to be rated as a 3 star accommodation, it far surpassed my expectations. The accommodation, communal areas and grounds are immaculate and all furnishings extremely comfortable. We were initially put in Room 142, this was noisy with dogs barking at night and noise from the local community throughout the night....on reporting this the very next day we were transferred to 120....perfectly peaceful and three huts from the sea!! We went on three planned trips (via Thompsons Rep), 9 mile (Bob Marley), Cool Runnings (catamaran to Dunns River Falls) and Dolphin Cove.....all three excursions were good value and a great experience! The food within the complex was varied, over the two weeks there was enough variety on offer. One note for all reading this.....please take some small change for tips, we took American Dollars and had to change this to give tips on occasion. Also wifi is 5 dollars an hour, and not very fast or consistent....but I guess the whole point of relaxing is escaping the outside world!!! We will definately be re-visiting this hotel next year.....we did consider 5* however the ones seen when picking up other travelers for excursions appeared to be concrete jungle looking buildings! So we will stick with Decameron and would recommend this to anyone!!!!More
