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.

A Great Experience
It was my wife's first visit to Jamaica and she was burning with excitement. I must admit, when I first read a couple of the bad reviews I was hesitant to make the reservations, however, a couple of the good reviews made it easy for me to give it try. The second we stepped out of the shuttle at the hotel the warm welcome we received and my wife's reaction quickly arrested my fears. Checking in was smooth and made easy with courtesy and warm smiles. I do applaud the front desk - Krystal, Saico, Norda, Darren - they were awesome. We had arrived late for lunch but early for dinner and were directed to 'the grille' - the perfect cure for our hunger. The restaurant staff was on point. We were amazed by how quickly and flawlessly they moved to ensure our needs were met and empty dishes and cups were removed from our table. We were escorted to our room and was amazed by the difference - a wonderful, clean and cozy cabin - a far cry from the usual 'hotel room'. Meals were always on time and was amazing. The drinks flowed. The daily activities kept us occupied. Hats off to the organizers of the nightly shows with special mention of the wonderful Mistress of Ceremony each night - the wonderful "Kandy Krush" and the animated dancers. We would like also to express our gratitude to Dionne, Nicola, Marvalyn, Odane, Cavine, Headley, and StaceyAnn for all you did in making our vacation a memorable one. Everyone has their expectations and ours were fulfilled. We are already missing it and before we left we were making plans to return. One drawback is that we were not informed about the services of a masseuse on the grounds in time. My wife has always dreamed of having a massage by the sea and would have loved the experience. Especially after hearing how good (Sophia) is at her craft. Next time we will take advantage of the service.More
Our second time here
As returning guests at this resort we knew what to expect and couldnât wait to enjoy our vacation back here which was sadly interrupted by âHurricane Matthewâ but these things cant be helped. As soon as we stepped off our coach we were warmly greeted by friendly staff which made you feel like being at home again with family. We were given a nice drink of rum punch while waiting to check-in, and then we were shown to our room. Due to the seriousness of Hurricane Matthewâ the resort provided us with lots of up to date information and kept us well informed of what was going to happen at the resort in the coming days. We were advised by TUI and our rep Amaril that we would be being moved to the RIU in Ocho Rios for our safety and so that the resort could make sufficient preparations to lessen any damage that may occur from the hurricane. Our time at the RIU was not great and I have reviewed them too which maybe worth a read for those interested in the experience there. A few days passed and we were allowed back to the resort again where we were greeted by the staff who expressed pleasure in seeing us back which made us feel respected for choosing to stay at the resort. The rest of our vacation was great and gave us plenty of memories to bring back especially when we received a certificate and mugs in gratitude from the resort for being returning guests, which I thought was a very nice gesture and felt valued as a guest. I must say a big thank you to the manager PEDRO and all the staff at the resort for making our holiday a great one. Special mentions go to the great bar staff that were always happy, chatty and gave excellent service. Especially the trainee Cornel who always seemed to be there all day no matter what time of day it was. Unlike other resorts RDCC doesnât pretend to be something its not, although its only a 3* resort it provides excellent value for money and what it may lack in certain areas it compensates in others especially the staff who are what makes this resort so great. It is a fantastic resort that I would recommend to anybody and we certainly will be returning in the future.More

Everyone has their own expectations.
Went in August with Karen my wife. Lovely flight but bit chaotic at the airport on landing too many flights in at the same time. Regardless nice transfer until the driver decided to stop for his lunch and leave us on the bus unattended! Fair play mentioned it to the very helpful Rep and promised it wouldn't happen again. Booking in was fine and taken to our chalet which was 20 yards from the beach and the same to the small beach bar. Beautiful. The room was lovely quite unique. Amazing to get up in the morning and walk out to amazing gardens and a brilliant beach within stones throw. The beach. As I say amazing plenty of sunbeds and a warm calm sea. Immaculately clean. Thanks to the beach lads especially Jommo and Shane great company. Just want to talk and make your holiday. The beach bar near us lovely and quiet and a bar maid of exceptional quality called Odette. Nothing too much trouble and always a smile in her face. The food. We're not fussy eaters so we always found plenty of choice at the buffet. Loads to choose from and couldn't fault any of it. That happy we never bothered with the a la carte restaurants. Staff here brilliant. The lads in particular MacKenzie and Odaine. I personally always tipped them a couple of dollars everyday. It means so much to them in fairness they get paid peanuts but are always there with a smile and a laugh. Bars. Jetty bar great staff again brilliant. Little tip again goes a long way. Same as the main bar no complaints. Entertainment. Ok bit repetitive but we enjoyed it. Plenty of nice reggae music by locals. Can't comment much on the entertainment team not really our scene these days but those that did interact seemed to enjoy it. Gardens. Beautiful. Ok the gardener's badger you for fags.....a simple no suffices. On the other hand they get you fresh coconuts and mangos for pennies. Drugs. People keep going on about this. Yes I got offered some weed once in site by an employee. Simple no never bothered us again. Outside the complex. We did Bob Marley's house via a local guy in a taxi. A must. Great day and stopped off at a proper jerk chicken place on the way back. Lot cheaper than the official trips. We went out to local bars not a problem. Cheap and cheerful. Ok you may get the occasional mad local badgering you but a polite no suffices....trust me. Go out and enjoy. All in all well worth the money. The staff are the ones that make it truly special. If a have one complaint here goes. We are smokers. I fully understand and appreciate non smokers and non smoking areas. The hotel needs to get its head around this. Designate smoking areas. Put ash trays out? If you don't people will throw their nub ends on the floor. There was a new GM arrive when we were there. Nice guy. Picked me up for smoking at the back of the main bar. Very pleasant don't get me wrong but someone had been smoking there because there was a used ash tray. There appear to be two sets of rules, one for "privileged" locals and one for guests. I saw "privileged" locals with their families sat at the main bar smoking. Those who have been to this resort will all know who I mean. Needs sorting but don't alienate smokers please just provide us with an area. Otherwise......would I go back?.......definitely.More
First experience here
We have been to Jamaica many times. Had a wonderful stay here. Everyone was so friendly and fun from the entertainment staff, front desk all the way to grounds maintainance. Will be back for sure. The garden cottages are very nice and comfortable. Entertainment crew especially Candy Crush and Freak Show, were wonderful in there energetic and fun was never a question when they and their crew were around. Food was plentiful and tasty. The staff was allows willing to go the extra step to see you had what you needed. More
Lovely friendly staff , very personable , attentive , alternative individual comfortable hut - cottage accommodation with full air conditioning , king size bed with facilities set in beautiful gardens or beach setting.
