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.

This is a 3 star hotel at it's best! We loved every minute we were there - had a beach front bungalow - very basic but with everything you would need - comfortable bed, decent bath and shower - air con - fridge! Also very clean with maid service every day. It was everything we wanted in Jamaica! The food was average, but the staff on all levels were fantastic, drinks good, great bar staff! The entertainment was exceptional for the size of the hotel. Wondering about the bad reviews about the Decameron, it is not a five star, as such don't expect five star service. Would definitely recommend this hotel if you want a little bit of Jamaica!More
Royal Decameron Club Caribbean Worst Place for a Vacation
Check in is strictly at 3 p.m. however when you get there for 3, the front desk staff are so slow, you wont get into your room until about 4. If that is the case they should inform guest that check in is a bit slow so arrive at least 1 hour early. They charge if you arrive early than 3pm. first turn off. Next turn off, there is no free WIFI, after you paid your hard earn money expecting internet connection so u can still socialize on the internet, our group was told that WIFI is at a charge.. I am like what the hell, it is not like we are on a day pass, we were there to spend 2 nights and 3 days. Another disappointment, the "Quiet" pool for adults closes at 5pm and the one other pool closes at 6 p.m & they both open at 9 a.m. This is totally unacceptable. We receive only 1 towels the entire weekend. Room service didnt change our towels the saturday after we came there the friday, we called and called and we called requesting towels saturday and were told we would be getting some soon, up until it was time to check out, we still didnt receive none. THey beach/pool towels are old and worn out. This place need to wheel and come again.. Not even one star.. Most of the staff (bartenders & lifeguards) are very nice.. The Customer Service Manager need to be fired. i could write so much moreMore
A three star resort and hotel
We booked this instead of a holiday to Mexico, and read a lot of the reviews which seemed very mixed. The hotel,is rated as a three star by Tui, and that is what it is, if you are expecting five star luxury then you will be disappointed. The hotel and the grounds are excellent, our room which was a garden room was a little dated, but overall nothing to complain about. Clean and room service every day, on a couple of occasions there were no towels left, but these were very quickly provided once we had spoken to reception. The rooms could do with a fridge as there is nothing to keep,any drinks cold and also tea and coffee making facilities, you can get coffee and tea in the mornings from the bar, but by the time you walk back to your rooms the drinks are cold. This would make a huge improvement in the rooms facilities, and it is unusual for the room not to have them, I cannot remember any other hotels we have stayed in that do not have these. We ate in the buffet restaurant apart from one night when we ate in the Carribean fusion restaurant, which was very disappointing, very small portions, and the food was barely warm, had we paid a supplement for this them I would have complained, but not having paid any extra we did bother and ate in the buffet after that. Breakfast are good, but how can they run out of orange juice and bacon at breakfast??, when my wife asked the girl,serving the bacon how long it would be, very short and sharp reply was "20 " minutes. This member of staff had a very poor attitude to guests, I cannot remember her name. Adrian who cooked eggs each morning was good always smiling and laughing with the guests (she should take a leaf out of his book) Lunch and dinner were ok, but again they would run out of food and if you ate later as we like to do your choice was limited, there could be a better variety of the food as well, but generally it was ok, and you will not go hungry, but there is only so much jerk chicken you can eat!! The beaches are smaller than they appear in the pictures on the hotel website, the best beach was the one between the main bar and the beach bar which is much wider than the others and gives you more room, not sure how many people were at the hotel when we stayed, but on some days all the sun loungers were used, if the hotel wasn't full not sure what you would do for sunloungerswhen the hotel is full. The beaches are cleaned every morning by the hotel staff and are as good as any others we have stayed at in the Caribbean. The hotel,staff were all good, nice and friendly and always polite, Lenton and Cornel and the Manchester United supporter member of the bar staff ( I cannot remember his name) deserve a mention, and the waitress in the Buffett restaurant her name begins with Z, again was always nice and polite and friendly. Some of the entertainment staff I found were very arrogant when they talked to you, in particular two members known as Mr Cool and Raza, perhaps they should remember we are guests at the hotel when they speak to you. There was entertainment each night, some of which was good and some was not so good, the entertainment in the second part of the evening was usually by the hotel entertainment staff, and sometimes I got the impression the entertainment was for their own ego's rather than entertaining the guests., but that is just my personal opinion. Overall this is what it is, a three star hotel and resort, no more no less. If you go there expecting anything more than that you would be disappointed. A few things would make it better, improve the food, and the rooms to have a fridge and tea and coffee making facilities, if these were done you would find not really find anything wrong with the resort and hotel. The reviews are mixed, but overall this is as good and in some instances better than other resorts we have stayed at in the Caribbean. More

After reading previous reviews I had high expectations of this resort, however I was sadly disappointed. Check in was swift and we were promptly taken to our garden cottage, this was in a great location just the row behind the beach cottages, with a partial sea view. From the outside the cottage looked lovely, especially at night with the lighting. Inside was quite spacious with a good sized bedroom, big walk in wardrobe and bathroom. It was very clean and the bed was huge with lovely clean bedding which was changed frequently. The bathroom had a bath with a shower over it, the pressure of the shower was terrible, it went from freezing cold to scalding hot in seconds, the bath and toilet both had quite big chips in the enamel which made them look pretty grotty and the bath mat in the bath was quite mouldy. The dressing table in the bedroom did not have any seating which made it quite uncomfortable doing hair/makeup. Both the door and windows had quite big gaps, the door in particular had about a 2cm gap at the bottom of it, which allowed the dreaded mozzies in. I have travelled quite a bit and have to say I've never seen as many mossies as I did at this resort, nothing seemed to stop them. I did ask for the room to be sprayed which I was assured it was but I saw no evidence of this. Breakfast was very good, loads of choices and very fresh bread. Have to give a special mention to the egg man(sorry, terrible for remembering names) eggs made any way you want while you wait always with a smile. Lunch was ok, you could have this in the main restaurant or at the Jasmin Delta, we preferred the latter, especially the pizzas. Evening meal was a very big let down, this was served from 6:30 to 9:30 but if you arrived after 8:00 there was not much choice. Chicken was always available but always on the bone. I found any other meat I tried was very tough or very fatty. On numerous nights the dessert section was practically empty, occasionally they would bring an extra cake out. There was also an ice cream section, but this was left to melt then re freeze on some nights which didn't look too appetising. Coffee, tea and water were always available from the main bar. We took a couple of flasks with us to fill, but it was a bit of a chew not having tea/coffee facilities in the room. The bars were ok, quite a few times they did run out of basics like beer/coke. They did not have Diet Coke/lemonade etc which did make the drinks quite sickly sweet. The quiet pool bar and cruise liner bar did have a bit of a problem with wasps. The swing bar was lovely, nice and relaxing however on a couple of occasions after very heavy rain there was a bit of a sewerage smell which was a little off putting. Some bar staff were really good and some not so good, you definitely do get better service if you tip! The beaches were a bit of a let down, the five coves are all man made and the boulders/stones they used to create them are starting to break down, there were two areas which were taped off because of this. The beach by the Jasmin Delta had so much seaweed on it, I know the weather was not good while we were there but this was just left for about a week, they did dig a hole in the sand to bury it but I think they just gave up on that after a while. There were plenty of sun beds and these were very comfortable, there didn't appear to be many brollys both on the beach and around the pools, this wasn't a problem while we were there because of the bad weather but in the height of summer I can see this being a bit of a problem. In summary I really don't feel able to recommend this hotel and would definitely not return.More
