This place makes the most of its beachfront spot. It’s got a jetty with a bar where you can sit on a swing seat and listen to reggae beats. Plus, the curvy main pool looks out over the sea. Talking of pools, there’s a quieter one just for adults, too. When it comes to dining, there’s a trio of restaurants, including a seafront á la carte with an Asian fusion menu, and a more casual buffet number by the pool. Accommodation here ranges from circular one-room cottages on the beach and in the gardens, to suites in the main building where you get more space and mountain views.

Just returned from Jamaica and had a lovely time at this hotel with my husband. We were quite apprehensive after reading the reviews and even tried to change our hotel last minute, however am glad we were not able to. The hotel itself is clean, well maintained ( Some of the rooms do need updating however are perfectly clean and suitable for ones needs) and has adequate facilities. What makes this hotel is the staff - all of them are absolutely amazing. You WILL go home having met some fabulous Jamaican people and having had a good time. From beach staff to waiters, bar team, cleaners and management - everyone is friendly and work tirelessly to ensure you have a good time. The entertainment team are the best i have ever seen and i have been to quite a few hotels around the world. The dancing, the audience participation events, the singers and not forgetting the 3 guys that sing and play reggae on the maracas, drum and guitar during lunchtimes and evenings are fab!!! Have a massage under the beach canopies whilst looking out to sea! 30 minutes for leg back and shoulders - its great $40 or an hour for $60 All day tea and coffee station located at the bar! The food is great - so much variety and all tasty and well cooked. yum yum! However i dont get the idea of having a Thai al a carte restaurant - there is NOT enough Jamaican food offered and i felt that the Thai place should be a Jamaican restaurant offering Jamaican food every day. If i was nit picking there would be a few minor things i would like to see change - More outside seating and tables in the evening - No kids in the late night snack restaurant after 10:30pm - there were about 15 french kids running riot and all ordering food at 11:45pm when we went - not one of them ate all the food and the parents were no where to be seen - It put us off going again. - Beach front cottage windows cleaned regularly - these were quite dirty with sand and sea water, and it would of been nice to be able to see clearly through considering we paid £450 more for the privilege! Flight times from Gatwick were 10:40 outbound and 8:15 inbound. Landing at the airport was a mare with a huge American flight getting in just before us and the queues for immigration and security took ages. it was lovely having a private taxi waiting for us and the driver Moodie (message me should you want his number or email) was amazing at giving us the lowdown on Jamaica and even took us on a couple of trips. The transfer time was about 45 mins in the taxi. We beat the coaches and checked in smoothly and quickly!More

Fantastic beach location with several private beach areas to pick from. Very nice layout of individual cabanas spread out on the well kept property. Good service from everyone and good entertainment staff. Rooms were clean and comfortable, food was great.More
Bait & Switch - DON'T LET THEM GET AWAY WITH IT!
This would have been our first stay at an all inclusive - we have been to Jamaica many times & have never experienced treatment like we received at the Royal Decameron! I booked our stay a good 3 months in advance - and paid for it as well. When we arrived we were told our room wasn't ready & please go have lunch & check back later - after filling out the check in paperwork , etc - no hint at that point anything was wrong. So we went & looked around the resort - everything looked ok - electricity appeared to be on and everything working fine - (remember that point for later) When we went back to check on the room we were told again it wasn't ready - nothing more. Then they proceeded to ignore us for a good 15 minutes. Eventually one of the front desk clerks told us the "customer service representative" wanted to have a word with us. So we waited - and waited some more while watching this little man scurry around in the background. Finally he decided to bring us to an office and told us they could not give us a room - claimed they had been having a generator problem for A WEEK (remember what I said about the electricity being on everywhere we looked? ) His plan for us was for us to go back to Montego Bay (a 45 minute to 1 HOUR drive) and stay in another one of their hotels. I told him this was not in any way acceptable. So he scurried away again - this time when he came back his story was he had attempted to call the site we booked thru but did not get an answer. I told him I did not book thru that site - and I have a number for you to call for the customer service dept at the site we did book thru. He then called the number I provided - Lo & Behold - got thru with no problem. They confirmed he did not have a room for us at the Royal Decameron Runaway Bay - but he thought it would be just fine to send us back to Montego Bay! He then came up with offering to provide transportation I then AGAIN attempted to be patient with him - explaining AGAIN IF I WANTED TO STAY IN MONTEGO BAY I WOULD HAVE BOOKED IN MONTEGO BAY! Also we have a rental car and do not need you to transport us anywhere. Then I got back on the line with the booking site people & bless them they found us accomodations elsewhere in Runaway Bay and gave us a partial refund AND a credit to use on a future booking! The moral of the story as far as I am concerned is make sure you have the phone number with you for the customer service dept of the site you book thru and don't let these people get away with this BAIT & SWITCH CRAP!More

Great location, fantastic staff
We stayed at the Royal Decameron at the end of January and enjoyed our stay. We were in no 39 which was larger than we expected; twin beds upstairs, living space, bathroom and large bedroom downstairs. For the two of us this was more than enough space. The rooms could do with a bit of a freshen up, new paint, light fittings etc but we don't go on holiday to spend excessive time in our room so as long as they are clean and safe, which they were, we are great. The gardens are beautiful and very well kept and very pleasant to wander round. The food is lovely and always a fantastic selection to choose from. We always found a table and after the a few days the waiting staff, who are all really helpful, know what you want to drink so bring it straight over. The entertainment was not our thing, the entertainment staff are like a bunch of excitable screaming nursery children bouncing around. I go on holiday to spend time with my husband and don't expect to have the entertainment staff come and sit uninvited with us at dinner, on our sun beds or at the bar. They are very intrusive and don't take no for an answer. From 10am they give them microphones and all you hear all day is them screaming, (trying to) sing and being generally annoying. The evening entertainment is no better, the same lot but with a bit of polyester clothing added into the mix! The great thing about this hotel is the location, we did many trips; Dunn's River, Mystic Mountain, Port Antonio and Blue Lagoon which are all easily booked and accessible. The hotel has some fantastic staff, minus the entertainment lot, and we would definitely consider coming back here again in the future. More
