We found ROyal Decameron at Runaway Bay to be a disappointment. The ride to the hotel was terrible! Hotel was a bit less than desirable, but okay, not my cup of tea, so we took the upgrade THEY OFFERED to MONTEGO BAY. MUCH nicer, rooms clean, staff super and the Bay super. AMibaince was very nice and equal any 4... More

We stayed at the MBR for a week in June 2004, had a wonderful time. Simply put, this is a great hotel with great food, very helpful staff, clean modern rooms and great guests. What more could you want in a holiday? Oh, and great cocktails! We will definately go again.

We were transferred to the RD Montego Bay after one night in Runaway Bay. They were looking for people to move so we decided to give it a try. The resort in MoBay is definately nicer in every aspect than the resort in Runaway Bay. First of all let me start off by saying that absolutely everyone at the resort... More

From the time we arrived right until the end of our vacation, we could not find fault whatsoever with this resort or it's people. Actually aside from the resort itself, the people made our vacation what it was - and that was terrific !!! The Royal Decameron has gone under extensive renovations and it certainly surpasses a 3 star resort.... More

My husband and I have been going there every February for 15 years now. We were even married there. We started with a week and then went to 10 days and are now up... More

I spent two weeks at MBR with a family of four. After reading all the bad reviews I was so worried but was very pleasantly surprised. Some of the bad things that were said were obviously downright lies. Location excellent, views incomparable. Beautifully kept grounds. Plenty of delicious food with lots of variety, meat, fish, vegetables, fruit, cakes. Nice coffee.... More

I returned from a great week spent at MBR (Yeh Mon! ) 24/08/04 contrary to what I anticipated having read the reviews of more "discerning" travellers. As the saying goes - empty vessels.... The staff were especially attentive and accomodating. The rooms were extremely comfortable with great balconies and views and the food was excellent lots of choice within meals... More
