We (Pty-4) arrived 12 November following a week in Ocho Rios. I was in a leg cast thanks to an accident the previous week in Ochee. We made our plight known to the booking office in Runaway Bay before heading for MoBay. The promised ground floor/ocean view rooms didn't materialize. Our room was at the end of the corridor overlooking... More

We stayed at the Royal Decameron from Nov.24th through the 29th. We chose this resort based on the great reviews it received on Tripadvisor. It amazes me to read some of the recent negative reviews, because these people were there at the same time as my boyfriend and I were, and you would have thought they were writing about a... More

The staff (management) at this resort should re-direct their carrer to something different, front desk people were the worst that we experienced in the last 25 years of intense travelling. It is bad that such a good resort during the Jack Tar era has gone so bad, the DeCameron chain should review the whole staffing group. The management problem between... More

This is the worst all-inclusvie I have ever been to. The food his horrible(without flavor)or covered in sauces. If you happen to get hungry after 11 - you are out of look except for a hot dog/hamburger grill at the end of resort. There are no vending machines or open bars after 11pm to get a drink. The entertainment is... More

After having read many reviews of hotels in the area, myself and five of my girlfriends decided on staying at the Royal Decameron. From the minute we arrived, we were blown away by the beauty and cleanliness of the hotel. Everything is right on the water, bright colors, fun music and friendly staff. We spent 5 days hanging out by... More

We just got back from spending the week at RDMB. After reading all of the other reviews, I think I had expectations that were too high for this place. This was our fourth visit to Jamaica, but the worst “3 Star” place we’ve stayed at. If the Half Moon is considered 5 star, and the Riu we stayed at in... More

We stayed at the RDMB from 11/11-11/18. We had a great time. Everything was great. The staff there were so friendly and remembered you. The bartenders were great and remembered your drinks. They were not stingy on the liquor either, which is always a plus. Don’t forget to bring you travel mugs....it helps a lot if you are laying out... More
