My husband and I stayed at the Royal Decameron in Montego Bay, Jamaica on October 12-17, 2005. It was absolutely outstanding. We had experienced some adversity by our luggage being lost for a day (always put an extra set of clothing in your carry on, you never know), the staff was very accomodating from the office to the gift shop...

we stayed at the Royal Decameron in Montego Bay, Jamaica from Oct.6-10th for a long weekend escape from Atlanta. The resort in all-inclusive and the drinks, food and features were better than we had hoped. The resort is on a smaller beach, but there is great snorkeling just a few feet into the water- we saw all kinds of fish... More

This resort was everything you could want and more. I travelled with my girl Sept 17-24/05. The resort is small (about 135 rooms), but it is not small when it comes to activites and entertainment. The staff at the resort were great and there was more things to do than time to do them. The food at the buffet was... More

This hotel maybe a 3-star... but it is a "high" 3-star! The grounds and rooms were very clean and well kept. We vacationed at the RDMB 9/23-9/26. The food was very good including the Souk restaurant. No trouble at all getting reservations. The nightly entertainment was excellent. Overall the trip was worthwhile. If you want to vacation and not spend... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Royal Decameron in Mobay for a week at the end of September and had an INCREDIBLE vacation. Considering Jamaica is one of the higher priced destinations in the caribbean, this hotel was a steal. This was our first caribbean vacation, and we are in our early twenties. I cannot say enough good things... More

We had the ultimate time at the Decameron. All inclusive--FOOD, BOOZE, SMOKES, leave your wallet in your room, you won't need it!!! We were very skeptical of there 2 star rating, but reading all the reviews we decided to give it a shot, and they treated us great, like a strong 4 stars... No over the top FUFU, just really... More

I can't rave enough about this resort. Me and my sister were there June 15 through June 19 and had an awsome time. The food, the staff, the beach, the rooms, the activities, the drinks, the bartenders were all above and beyond all expectations. The price is right and I know it will go up soon-This has to be the... More

I just returned from vacationing at the Royal Decameron Montego Bay! It was the most beautiful place I've ever been to! My best friend got married while we were there and it was like a fairytale!

The Hotel in general is ok, not recommended for couples with children though. Also I do not recommend it for singles (boring). Do not expect to find branded drinks, you can get whatever you want, but in jamaican brands. Do not take the scuba diving tour, you can see much more by snorkeling in the shore (which is free). Be...
