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.

Can't wait to go back!
Went to the royal decameron in September for two weeks as part of a group of six and had a brilliant holiday. Staff are fantastic especially the entertainment crew. Cottages are very basic but cleaned every day and fresh linen and towels. We stayed in the beach cottages. Food was nice, large range so something to suit everyone and a la carte restaurant very good too. Gardens and the surroundings are beautiful and garden staff are always out tidying it up. Only criticism was the reception staff who weren't bothered that we didnt have 3 cottages together which was specifically asked for months in advance. They also didnt seem to know much when asked questions. Overall it was a fabulous holiday and we cant wait to get back!More

Just arrived back today.The place is beautiful clean ,we stayed in a beach hut near the jasmine Delta.we only went there one afternoon for lunch sat there over half an hour when I asked are you open all I got was when I'm ready just wait so we got up and walked out.we never went back in hear bad reports all holiday about the food not good there.We hit the Jamaican weekend which was awful.the restaurant was just like a cattle market.plates couldn't get any more food on if they tried so rude pushing you out the way snatching spoons off you that you had just picked up to serve yourself with.friday and Saturday the local bars outside the hotel music so loud on till 2am Friday and 5 am Saturday morning.most of the staff are so nice the entertainment staff work hard.the entertainment at night not good very tedious.some staff dealing the splif one of the staff said its called palming.we ventured out twice just outside the gate a few locals very in your face .went to the atm and a couple of them follow you you end up giving them money just so they leave you alone one of them even tried to snatch 5 dollars out of my husbands hand.Roy just outside the gate and the shop next door they are wonderful and will do you a deal on gifts.the gift shop in the hotel so expensive and tend to overcharge you for things you haven't bought so be careful.overalll wonderful holiday Decameron fantastic place to stay .the Bob Marley trip a must loved it.the return journey to the airport the vip lounge is a must.but would not go back to Jamaica.More

Welcome return to relaxation!
We stayed at the Royal Decameron Club two years ago and liked it so much that we returned â this time with our Mum - it was like returning home! We were even back in our previous bungalows with the help of our very good Altrincham booking agent Lisa. On arrival our party was met by Dave who escorted us to our bungalows and he was attentive to our every needs on a daily basis, be it advising us on the local attractions and old traditional tips when one of our party had a mossy bite. We bumped into our old friends in the main restaurant Kermit, Dave, Patrick and the energetic Basil all keeping us amused with their daily antics. The varied Jamaican food was a warmly welcomed by our family though extra food is required when it is the Jamaican Saturday event as we are hearty eaters. The drinks were plentiful and cool. Down at the gym Colours and Freestyle helped my sisters and mum with the gym equipment. My Mother exercised like there was no tomorrow as the Hotel Manager Leeyoung Sinclair was on hand to give her tips which she found very helpful as she is into her twilight years. Relaxing on the beach, reading, drinking and swimming was easily done by us all. We're even playing a further trip in 2 years time, as they say it will soon come round. Keep this hotel as it is welcoming, friendly and above all a home from home for returning guests.More

Basic all inclusive, poor customer service
Visited this hotel on a local holiday weekend, spent two nights. At check in the clerk was pleasant, maybe the only pleasant person I encountered on my stay. I was told by the clerk about the restaurant that specialised in Thai food, jasmine delta, so we made reservations and went to our room. The room was stink of paint, I asked the bellhop about the recent painting and he said he wasn't sure but he smelled it as well. So I went investigating for this smell only to find some spots in the bathroom that seemed to be recently painted. Anyways, went to the fitness centre and it was nicely set up. The gym is fairly equipped and clean, I went there twice during my stay. Went to shower in my room only to realise there is no shelf or holding area for soap and toiletries, u have to put the soap on the shower floor. Then I looked up and saw a mold spot that was recently painted over, well a poor attempt was made at it. Jasmine delta was so far from Asian food, I couldn't even call it that food. It was poor, service was poor, we waited a while to be seated and for our orders to be taken. The same jasmine delta spot is also the same spot used for the grill during the day. Went to the grill the following day and the service was the same. Slow slow slow, even worse. They ran out of food. No wings. No pizza, no burger buns. They were serving burger parties on hot dog buns. The bartender at the pool bar gave me milk and syrup when I ordered a milkshake. When I asked him about it, he said I didn't specify I wanted it blended and they have no ice cream. What did I expect him to do? Really? No customer service at all. I told him if he had said he had no ice cream and the ask if I want it blended with ice. I could understand, he was rude beyond measure. Went to the restaurant, nyammings, it was faster service than jasmine delta and the food was ok. When I spoke to front desk about my issues I was told the guest services manager would get back to me. I am still waiting. The beach is an ok beach, there are nicer beaches on the island and it's worth your while to explore the island. Overall, it's a basic hotel with a nice fitness centre. Do not expect great customer service. I would hate to think that it is because I am a local why I received such low customer service.More

Holiday of a lifetime
Me & my friend Georgina stayed here in March 2014 & we are still talking about what an amazing time we had, We paid extra to stay in a beach cottage which was worth the extra cost...the staff were amazing & the entertainment staff made our stay very enjoyable!! I will try & list as many as I can remember Freestyle,Empress & Birdman were some of our favourites from the entertainment team & Wayne behind the bar was lovely & Raymond was such a sweetie, we were treat like queens for our stay & enjoyed the company of the staff...the only negative would have to be that the resort felt a bit over run by the French for example: in the disco a french D.J would take priority over the Jamaican D.J who wasn't able to play his music until really late & in my opinion no one goes to Jamaica to listen to Daddy Cool which was the top of the french D.J's obscure music choice, we were offered an upgrade to a hotel & free wifi to sister resort in Montego but we turned it down, we went out every night beyond the resort & felt safe, it's a short drive to Ocho Rios & we went on some fabulous excursions, Food in the hotel is lovely & has a wide variety & themed nightsMore
