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.

Good so far
I have been to this resort in 2011 with my mate for a week but then went for 2 weeks this time from 12th - 26th Oct 2014 The receptionist was very helpful , friendly and offered a fruit punch when arrived , the place is still nice and remembered everything was , I remembered me and my mate stayed in number 80+ cottage and now we stayed at number 55 next to the tennis/basketball court. The only problem that the cottage where we stayed in needs abit of TLC. The tiles on the floor was then to be taking out and replacing with the same new ones as the old ones had cracks in them which was good! Problems!!! 1. Lick of paint in pool needs doing ( blue would be nice ) 2. The Cocktails menu needs enlarging ( couldnt see anything with the small writing ) 3. The Lamp on walls needs fixing as mine was wobbly 4. The toliet wouldnt flush so had to go and get a plumber to sort it out and was sorted within 10mins other than that, we had a great holiday and met some new people especially the people who works there :) thanks to the bartender cant remember his name, knew what i drink and just constantly fill it up when he sees me walking to the Souk Bar :) and the fun crew just keeps on going and keep us entertained in pool and on stage having a giggle and laughs, met the lovely Nella who has now left to work for Jewels, she is an amazing dancer and other dancers too, they work so hard and they are brilliant! never had no problems with them! Only problem is that the place needs TLCMore

Another fabulous stay in Janaica
My husband and I travelled on 9th Oct this was our second stay at this resort we spent Christmas and New Year with our children 21 and 17 along with another family of 5. We decided to return just the two of us as we knew the place was perfect to chill out for 11 nights and again we could not fault any part of this resort. The staff work so hard including the gardeners as the gardens are beautiful bar staff entertainment crew everyone. We stayed in a garden hut 38 which was ideal as in the gardens but also next to the beach. Food was great especially Tai nights. Have to mention Freestyle. Birdman, Colours, Vanilla and Empress the all work so hard and keep everyone entertained day and night. Couple of tips never get a taxi outside the complex use the ones available on site they will take you anywhere and stay with you all day. Take American Dollars it's easier. Eat at Sharkies one night which is a local bar to the left out of the complex. More

Major Renovation is needed!
DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT go to Royal Decameron Club Caribbean! 1. The lighting in the cottages are terrible. Very dark and dingy. 2. Service is TERRIBLE! Staff (servers, bartenders, front desk staff) are NOT happy to be here and are not friendly. I find that when you're staying at all-inclusive resorts, the staff make or break the experience. They will not make your vacation enjoyable. 3. Most of the cottages need renovation. We were placed in room 68, and there were urine stains on the bathroom door and the closets were full of dust. We requested a room change and they placed us in room 273 which was far better but the closets were still dusty and lights super dark. Actually, the light switch in the bathroom was broken. 4. The only restaurant open past 11PM is the grill, and they only serve hot dogs and hamburgers. No french fries! No pizza! 5. Only 2 a la carte restaurants (Thai and Seafood that alternate each day) and the Buffet restaurant. There were days when we were sitting there for at least 20 minutes until a server approached us. No bueno! Save yourself the trouble and go stay at Jewel Paradise Cove which is a little more $ but TOTALLY WORTH IT!More
Hidden Gem Resort
So we got on the "Bob Marley" bus at the airport as directed to get to our resort, along with a full bus load of people. We stopped at one resort before ours, and everyone, and I mean everyone other than my wife and I got off. We kinda started freaking out...what do they know that we don't? oh god...and off we went on the now empty bus not sure what to expect. We pulled into what felt like a small side street, and to a gate that opened up to our resort. We got off and checked into our hotel, still a little unsure of what to expect now that we were the only getting there. Staff was friendly at check in, bag boys cam and grabbed our stuff, and showed us the way to our cottage for the week. Loved it! Garden room view, with peace and quiet. No people above us, or below us, or balconies looking down at us. Just a quaint well maintained garden with plenty of hammocks, and walking paths to get around. The beaches are in 3 quiet little coves with rock wall wave breakers. Go in for a dip if you like, or go for a swim to the next cove if that's your thing! Each beach had it's own little bar to grab a drink at, and lounge chairs to just sit back and enjoy the view. Food was great. What really impressed me though was watching the staff at buffet actually maintain the buffet. Going around and refreshing the ice under the food, and ensuring cleanliness around the buffet areas. Good to see. The entertainment staff was friendly and energetic. Were a pleasure to watch in action. There is security that wanders around the resort 24 hours, so we felt safe which was nice. It was truly a relaxing vacation. Enjoyed every minute of it. The other guests we met too were generally repeat visitors. One couple was on their 10th visit there in 10 years. Speaks volumes! A little hide-away resort, forgotten by the 5-star 10 storey hotel type resorts. No thanks! I'll take my peace and tranquility over elevators and 1000 guests. By the end of the week, we felt so relaxed and refreshed, we got back on that bus and stopped at that same first resort and picked up the same people that had got off the bus the week before. I'm sure they had a good time in their own way, but felt a little bad they did not get to experience this resort as we did. Maybe they'll read this and find what they were looking for.More
We travelled as a group of six and booked 15 months advance as returning guests, and still they couldn't put us in beach cottages next to one another.........very disappointed. We booked a private transfer with Joe Cool taxi's who were waiting for us when we landed, and took us straight to the hotel well ahead of the coach. On arrival given our rooms which were 7,10 and 13 which was even in the next bay! Asked if we could be given anything nearer to one another and the girl just shrugged and said that was all they had. The next day we went to reception who told us that it would be Wednesday before we could move to number 9.......no choice so had to wait. Stayed on the beach the first night, had a few drinks then went to the buffet for dinner, then to bed. Next morning woke early and just took our time getting used to our surroundings again. Cottages are still the same as when we first went, basic, clean and comfortable. Having upgraded to a beach bungalow you also get a fridge. Pauline our cleaner (who even remembered us from our last visit) was a gem, always leaving fresh flowers in all of our rooms. Beach is raked every morning, sea is clear and shallow. There is plenty of choice at the buffet, but there is also the Jasmine Delta for snacks at lunch time and snacks between 11pm & 1am at the buffet. Entertainment crew do a fantastic job keeping people amused during the day and then doing some shows at night. There are 2 pools, one for everyone and an adults only pool with a bar at the side......very quiet if that is what you want. All staff helpful,but do think that reception need more training in customer care. Two weeks went very quickly and it was soon time for our taxi to pick us up. We booked the VIP lounge for our return and once we were checked in were fast tracked through the rest of the airport......well worth it. Plenty of choice to eat and drink and comfortable chairs while you wait for your flight, or as a base while you do some duty free shopping. A very restful and relaxing holiday, thanks to Karen, Russell, Jamie and Hannah hope to see you all again soon!!More
