The Royal Decameron Montego Bay is location friendly - not far from the airport and night life. The room I stayed in during my 1st stay was one of the cottages (or as we would call row houses) (#1) in front of the sea and it happened to be just after hurricane Dean (2007). The hurricane had done a lot... More

We stayed at the hotel from 26/01/15 for 1 x week. Upon arrival from the airport that's a total nightmare by the way, it was a nice change to be so close to our accommodation however, the queues for check-in were horrendous so we just sat outside and chilled for a while until they went down. We were given a... More

A group of 6 stayed 2/14-2/21. When we arrived, they were overbooked and sent us to the sister hotel in Runaway Bay for one night. We returned the next day. The sister hotel in my opinion is not as nice. We were well compensated for their error. We received champagne dinner, free WIFI for the week, 2 massages and a... More

Not all rooms have fridges. Bars were terrific. Easy to navigate around the place. Food was good. Staff friendly. Management not so much. A lot of returning guests here and they love the place. Good vibes and lots of spots to hang out and relax. Large balcony which I enjoyed.

Our room was lovely, very spacious and the view was spectacular of the sea. We stayed in a ground floor room towards the end of... More

We stayed in room number 9, not in the main building but not too far from everything. The room was very basic and had a not very pleasant smell all the time. There was only 1 mirror and that was in the bathroom. Good huge comfortable bed with good quality white linen. Towels were white and fluffy,but hit and miss... More

Just spent the week at the Decameron for my good friends wedding. The hotel is very clean, never been so close to the ocean. Most rooms have an ocean view and were very clean. Some of the friends that stayed in other rooms had shower issues. You have to pay extra for a safe and refrigerator. The food was okay... More
