My partner and I went to the Royal Decameron for the second time in December 2014. We spent 8 days and can honestly say, we are ready to try something new when we return to Jamaica again. There were additional benefits better than before, coupled with some negatives, but love the hotel. Things that were not user friendly :- 1)... More

Me (21), my mom, and sister (20) stayed at the RDMB January 14-21 2015. We had the most amazing time...all we could ask ourselves is how someone could write a bad review about this place. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by Odane who is now a lifelong friend. He was so friendly and welcoming. While checking in... More

We stayed on the first floor with 9 friends, and we all say we would go again in a heart beat. We cannot thank all of the friendly staff enough for making our visit very enjoyable. You can party as much as you want and or relax by the pool or ocean with only your thoughts as much as you... More

This was our 5th trip to Jamaica in 4 years. We always stay in Montego Bay because it is central for tours to other areas. Usually I book at the Sunset Beach but there was no availability, so on good recommendations from friends and Trip Advisor we decided to try The Decameron. Overall experience was similar to other positive reviews...... More

I will not do just the hotel but the whole package. We travelled with Thomas Cook who were very good, got to the airport and before we got on the coach were offered drugs! If you tell them no they are fine with no hassle so dont let this put you off, also it is illegal in Jamaica. The transfer... More

My husband and I stayed for two weeks over Christmas, and we couldn't have been more pleased. To heck with all the stuck up self-important reviewers with a sense of self-entitlement, this place beats most!

This is a great place to go on vacation, I was able to do snorkelling right in front of hotel, the beach is not deep but it is wide and there is always chairs available. Animation is super and very animated. I loved everything about this vacation, i will go again
