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.

My wife and some of her friends book a one night stay at this hotel .First they tell you that you can't come to the hotel before 2pm then they said that our rooms would not ready before 3pm fine I understand but when we got to our room it was hot as hell . We have been to almost all the hotel in jamaica and we have never experienced anything like this before if you know that someone is waiting on the room I would think you would turn on the ac so that when your gusts get there it would be cool that been said the price was very good the bartender was very nice the front desk staff was also friendly and helpful.

I will try and keep this short and sweet but with a few helpful hints and tips! Great welcome from staff. Spacious accommodation, which was very clean and tidy (basic though). Huge bed. Beautifully kept gardens. Food was delicious with a lot of choice. 24 hour security staff. Pools basic but clean, with complimentary water lilos. Entertainment staff very funny and lovely but didn't hassle you if you didn't wish to partake. Shows at night fun for all ages. Bars full of amazing cocktails. Didn't make the nightclub (too tired). ALWAYS lots of sunbeds to choose from. Jetty Bar my favourite hangout spot. Great sunsets from the jetty bar. Plenty to see and do. States it is a 3 star but it's more like 4 star. Great place if you don't want to say in a built-up complex. You do get harassed by the locals if you step out of the hotel. You do not need to take an iron or hair-dryer - these are provided and work really well. There is a safe in the room ($2 dollars approx per day). Do the Dunn's riverfalls if you can. Take dollars for tipping. Very relaxing but if you want stuff to do, there is always something going on! Seriously give it a go. You won't regret it!!More
Great Hotel, Great Food, Great Staff
I have just come back from The Royal Decameron Club Caribbean having spent a week there with my wife. We flew from Gatwick on the Dreamliner which was excellent. The 10 hour flight seemed to go by quite quickly and we touched down in Montego Bay at 1400 local time. The Airport was chaotic luggage was supposed to be coming on belt 5 then belt 6 then it just appeared in a pile on the floor, with everyone crawling over it to get their bags. Immigration was slow with only a few staff checking passports. Eventually we got our luggage and headed through customs out into arrivals hall. There were two Thomson staff telling people what coach to get on. We headed out into a tropical thunderstorm and tried to find the coach which was not straight forward. We managed to get the coach but waited an hour before we went anywhere whilst other passengers eventually managed to get to the right coach. We headed off to the hotel the transfer took about one and half hours and we were the first stop. The hotel is in Runaway Bay, at the end of small side street past a supermarket and a couple of local gift shops. Check in was fast and we went to our room 101 (not a joke). The rooms are separate cottages arranged in a Garden setting our room was to the left of the main hotel building and very quiet. It was close to the beach and only two minutes walk to the restaurant and bar area. I wouldn't recommend paying extra for sea facing room they are noisier and not private. The room is 3* standard really very clean, with TV with english, american, and Spanish channels. There was a huge double bed, sofa and chair, and a separate closet and bathroom. The room had a AC which was free and very good. The rooms are really like little lodges and as other reviewers have said a little tired, although I was very happy with our room, it is not a modern flashy hotel , much more down to earth. We had the room cleaned everyday and new towels. The sheets were changed every other day. The main restaurant was excellent, superb choices, and very clean, staff wore hair nets and gloves, and even used temperature probes on hot food. The service was excellent staff very attentive. I would say I have never seen such such an excellent choice of food and drink. The evening entertainment suffers from having to please the wide range of guests at the hotel, the resident band were very good but producing the same material night after night. There was a small group of three guys who played reggae by the bar everyday and they were excellent doing requests. Especially when a guest an elderly trilby hat wearing guy joined in singing, they embraced it. There is a nice little thai restaurant onsite which you can book, it is fairly limited in choice but makes a nice change from the other restaurant. The bars all make cocktails, my favourite was Vacation Memory, which includes three shots of rum orange juice and crushed ice. Less alcoholic was a coconut colada. Whilst we were there we took a couple of trips one to the Ocho Rios shopping, which was ok but not great the trip takes you to a self contained group of shop selling the same stuff. We ended walking out into the main town, which is a bit intimidating. People are keen to sell you everything including weed and are not backward in approaching you. We found a nice little gift shop The Little Omini Gift Shop Sonis Plaza 50 Main Street Ocho Rois, the guy who runs it is called Mendes Campbell and is a decent chap, We bought all of our souvenirs and gifts there. The second trip we took was with Chukka Tours and called the Zion Bus, this involved a trip on a old bus with a guide through the countryside to Nine Miles the resting place of Bob Marley it was a great trip Gary our guide was very knowledgable and entertaining, Alan the driver very calm and an expert and negotiating the narrow winding road. The only downside is the actual Bob Marley mausoleum, it has been turned into a cheap and tacky tourist site with three gifts shops, and our guide at the site "Crazy" was clearly wasted and not very good. Shame on whoever is in charge of this site and I am sure Bob would not have liked how his resting place is being exploited. That being said the ride on the bus and Gary and Alan made it a very worth while trip. All in all the hotel has a nice relaxed atmosphere about it, great service and excellent food. I would recommend it, More

We have just booked to come back here, and my in laws have been back three times. The hotel is great you get your own little cottage and it does what it says, clean Afficiant and safe. Food was great best all inclusive I have been too. Nothing to complain about l for those complaining about wifi and bugs??? Your on holiday and bugs really? They can't do much about that. As for the one stray cat you get this anywhere you go. I can't help but think there is no pleasing some people ! We never go back to places but can't wait to come back here!More

I have been to Jamaica many, many times. Have always been loyal to the Riu Chain. Saw this hotel a few years ago on a day trip and was intrigued. Finally got the chance to book and was not disappointed in the least. Bigger hotels are a little more opulent and "chic". But to have my own little cottage, no one next door, above or below was wonderful. The rooms are a little "eclectic". But very very clean and tidy and comfortable. The gardens are immaculate and make for the best pictures. 4 separate ocean pools for swimming, lazing and snorkeling were heaven. The hotel staff were amazing with one shining example...I love pumpkin soup and the week I was there, I didn't see any. I asked one of the bar tenders if they ever have pumpkin soup and he said yes. I jokingly asked if they were gong to have it tomorrow because I was leaving the day after. He laughed and I laughed and I didn't think much about it. The next thing I know, he comes back over to me and said the cook would make it for me the next day. He nodded over my shoulder and when I looked, I saw a man I recognized as one of the cooks. I didn't know he was the head cook and by gosh, there was pumpkin soup the next day for lunch. How many hotels would do something like that for a visitor, especially when they get thousands and thousands of guests a year. My sister in law got married and we had the "reception" at the hotel. Although we weren't using their wedding services, the staff did everything in their power to make our pictures turn out wonderful, including bringing fresh flowers just for the pictures. I am going again in November and can't wait. This is now my favorite hotel, ever!!! Take the chance and stay here, you won't be disappointed.More
