My wife and I stayed at the Royal Decameron in Montego Bay from May 27 - June 2. ROOM After only a short 5-minute ride from the airport, and a short check-in, we were a bit under-whelmed with our room.

I recently went to Jamaica for the first time with a tour group. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED Jamaica. It's a beautiful place. I arrived on Sat mid afternoon and the airport is definitely hot, so be prepared. But the customs line went pretty fast. I didn't wait that long at all. The hotel is about 5 minutes from the airport. When... More

This was my first trip to Jamaica and I truly enjoyed myself. This hotel is a wonderful place to stay for a moderate amount of money. Everyone at the hotel was so friendly, bartenders, front desk staff, restuarant workers, lifeguards, everyone. The rooms were very clean and the view was wonderful. My husband and I were in room 104 on... More

We made it thru the airport good, could feel the heat as soon as the doors opened. Customs was fast and friendly, and they even gave us some tips on some good places to visit. We checked... More

We went to Jamaica from 6/3/06-6/10/06 to the Royal DeCameron, in Montego Bay, Jamaica. When we arrived at the airport the customs line took alittle bit, but then as soon as we got through there were people right there at the airport that were helping you carry your bags, getting your transport or, or getting to your travel company and...

We spent our 10th year anniversary here and couldn't have been more pleased! After reading the reviews from here and others, we thought this was the place to go. We felt right at home when we first got there! Sharolyn Hamilton who checked us in and the guest services lady, Marilyn Wong were joking with us like they had known... More

We stayed at RDMB from June 3rd - June 10th. There were six of us in our group. Our ages are all under 30. Arrival: The line waiting for immigration took about an hour to get through. Customs itself was a breeze to get through. After getting through customs were greeted by a Apple Vacation representative (that is who we... More
