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.

Extremely Fun but don't go expecting Luxury
My husband and I just returned from one of the best vacations we have ever had. It was relaxing, no stress and so much fun! It was also better than we ever imagined it would be when we booked a three star resort. The good Staff, staff, staff. Everyone at this resort is so friendly and goes above and beyond to make sure you are having fun. So many times a gardener, lifeguard, server would simply say to me "You good?" Because they genuinly wanted to make sure you had everything you needed. I found this amazing. From the front desk staff who helped with my room questions and wifi needs, to the entertainment staff who got us up and moving and made sure we had fun, everyone is 100% committed to you having the best vacation possible. And we did. Because of them:) Big shout out to Emperess and Barbie who made me laugh, and laugh and laugh. The food was also delicious. By day 7 it was fairly repetitive because we only ever ate at the buffet but it was always good and we could always find something. Fresh salad ingredients and authentic Jamaican dishes (rice and peas, brown stew chicken, ackee and saltfish, festival, etc etc) made this buffet much better than other places we have been to in Jamaica. And the breads and croissants at breakfast helped after nights with too much rum! The grounds of this resort are also pristine - always clean and well kept. There is a lot to do, from the number of beaches (all cove style so no large beach to walk down), the snorkelling and other water sports, tennis and basketball, beach volleyball and the two pools, so you should never be bored (plus if you are bored just follow one of the entertainment staff around and they will amuse you with various games all day long). There is also a beach bar with swings for seats (fun) and a beach grill with yummy chicken wings when you need to re-fuel. Unfortunately we booked a courtyard room (not knowing any better) but saw the inside of a number of cottages and we were sad we didn't have one. They looked beautiful and just perfect to give your vacation a true beachy feel. We will be back to stay in one of them! So the bad.... There isn't anything bad, just areas to work on and points I want to highlight so people realize what they are getting into when they book here. This is not a luxurious, romantic resort. My husband and I had a blast because we interacted with the staff and met a number of other fantastic couples on the resort. Our room was extremely simply (clean) and small (very small) with no bathtub but we weren't there to sit in the room. So this resort met our needs and then some but it is basic in terms of the amenities and the rooms. The restaurants are similar in that they aren't fine dining or over the top. Which again was a-ok with us. Finally, the night life is non-existent but if you are smart, you find a way to have fun past 1030pm when the nighttime show is over. Overall, fabulous vacation and we want to go back to the RDCC!More

Just returned from 2 weeks in the Club Caribbean RDC and had a brilliant time, even though the resort is classed as 3* the staff make it a 5* experience!! From the animation crew to the gardeners, bar staff to chamber maids everyone is so friendly and always smiling and chatty. We had such a good stay here and couldn't fault the resort or amenities at all. The food was really good and a decent selection which changed everyday, the Jasmine Delta was the better of the 2 pre book restaurants where the food was exceptional. The Bars were brilliant with plenty of cocktails to chose from and always plenty of Rum in your drinks!!. The animation crew worked tirelessly and entertained everyone from 8am til late everday, they work so hard, so a big shout to Chantay, Freestyle, Empress and Birdman for all your hard work and making it fun!!. Other staff who were great with us was Damian in the bar always funny, Chelsea, Jessica and Kermitt kept us happy with your smiles and banter in the restaurant and our lovely chamber maid Miss Yvonne who nothing was ever too much trouble. Overall a fantastic place to stay and fantastic people looking after us, hope to see you all again soon cos we had an Irie time at RDC club Caribbean, Yea Mon!!!More
Spent a week at the RDCC and enjoyed every minute. It`s small enough that you don`t have to walk a mile to get back to your room and, having your own little cottage made it cosy and private. There was no one in the front lobby accosting you to buy time shares (like we encountered at the Grand Bahia in the past). The food was excellent and no line ups at the bar.The beach was lovely as were the staff. Nice little gift shop on site with great prices. The only negative; the beds were too firm for my back and the pillows were pretty lumpy!More

Yeah Mon - No Problem
One of the most relaxing holiday's that we have had. The garden cottages are like having your own space of paradise. DÃ©cor a bit tired but very clean. Bed really comfortable with loads of pillows, walk in closet and fair sized bathroom. Food - there was plenty of it - you could always find something to eat. Dessert's were really scrummy (hence the weight gain). Grounds and beach were clean and well maintained. Staff at the resort were brilliant and they work incredibly hard to make sure you enjoy your holiday everything is 'No Problem'. We enjoyed our time in Jamaica, when we've saved up again we will return. Yeah Mon - No problem everything was IrieMore

Beautiful gardens with unique cottage style rooms
This was our first time at this hotel, but our second visit to Jamaica. We did have an initial problem of being allocated an unacceptable room in the âtimeshareâ area of the hotel, but after complaining & being given a choice of two other rooms the day after our arrival, we settled in & thoroughly enjoyed this friendly hotel. The garden rooms are lovely & rather unique, they are all set either on the beachfront or around the beautiful well kept gardens, every four or so cottages have an area with two hammocks â great for a few hours resting & reading away from the direct sun. Our cottage had a queen size bed, flat screen tv, chairs & a small table with a separate dressing area & sufficient hanging & shelving space, also in this area was an iron& ironing board & a safe. The bathroom was also separate & had a good sized shower & washbasin with plenty of shelf space, hairdryer & plenty of towels. Our cottage was kept beautifully clean & sufficiently supplied with fresh bedding & towels. I would probably recommend rooms 64 â 137 (these are to the left hand side of the hotel when facing the ocean), as these are probably quieter at night. The buffet restaurant was excellent, vast arrays of everything you could wish for at every meal time, all meticulously clean & kept fresh. In fact we regularly saw the temperatures of food being taken & replenished. We were also pleased to see that kitchen staff wore face masks, something weâd not seen elsewhere. We ate one night in the fish restaurant, but were not overly impressed, so stuck with the buffet for the rest of our stay, apart from using the snack bar at the far end of the complex for lunch on a few occasions, special mention here must go to the waitress Kerry-Anne & the chef (whose name weâve forgotten â sorry). Kerry-Anne is the friendliest person , very witty, loves to chat & has a most beautiful voice, when she sings whilst she works. The snack bar food was fantastic, all freshly cooked to order, make sure you try the Jamaican patties. The hotel has two good sized pools, both cleaned daily, yes they could do with a bit of an overhaul, but both adequate. The pool in the quiet are is very peaceful & lovely & warm by late morning. The hotel has several small coves, all kept spotless by the friendly beach attendants, must mention here the one attendant, who when he saw we had a few mosquito bites, went & got us a piece of aloe vera plant to rub on them â believe you me it worked a treat, how thoughtful was that? There are plenty of sunbeds & we were always able to find one whichever cove we chose to spend our day. The bars are all staffed by hardworking friendly staff, who will all recommend a cocktail or two. The âswing barâ, so named for itâs fantastic swinging seats is a wonderful addition, it is on one of the jettys and there are also plenty of lovely wooden furniture to rest & relax on close by. The evening entertainment is all very professional, the entertainment crew are all very friendly & lots of fun, what amazing dancers they all are. There are plenty of activites going on every day, whether you join in or not is up to you. We didnât use them, but there are also plenty of pedaloes, sailboats etc. So to sum up â we loved this small friendly hotel, it may not have the facilities of itâs larger opponents, but it gets ten out of ten for itâs cleanliness, beautiful surroundings & amazing friendly, professional staff.More
