3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed in cottage 123 it was close to the beachfront on left side of the property. I loved the privacy of the cottage, the staff was warm and friendly. The food was good for this type of property. I have stayed at 5 star resorts before and I actually liked this one even though I've seen bad reviews but... More

The Royal Decameron Runaway experience was just ok. The staff was courtesy and friendly for the most part. However, I realized that the staff tend to treat the tourist from overseas better than the local guests.(I am local) The hot meals menu were limited in comparison to the other hotels I have stayed at namely RIU. But then again the... More

The Royal Decameron is a pleasant place to stay with nice friendly staff who work very hard to keep standards. Never fighting for sunbeds as there are plenty to go around Food is good for a 3 star complex Beach is constantly being cleaned and sea weed removed The beach hut type accomodation is excellent for privacy and always kept...

Hi I'm Brigitte and traveled to Jamaica for my 50th birthday holiday with my hubby Kevin. I am marking this hotel 4 star purely based on our experience in that we like smaller places and quite quiet resorts, not so much on everything that the Decameron had to offer. After a long flight I found check in at the airport... More

Went there with 2 friends (all girls) to celebrate a big birthday. Honestly, it could not have been better! If you like big posh ostentatious hotels. The this one is not for you. But if you like friendly, warm, clean, good food, great atmosphere and wonderful friendly staff, then this is a gem. This place is in Jamaica and feels... More

Just landed back in england after two weeks at the decameron. Pro's The location and concept of the decameron are both excellent. Accomodation is based on octagonal individual cottages. Fabulous idea, allows seperate adult bedroom and upstairs area for kids. Small living area with multiple channel tv. Compact bathroom. Sea front divided into several small bays. Two dedicated beach bars... More

My husband and I traveled here. We arrived after 12:00pm we were told we couldn't check in until 3pm. We traveled many hours and had a layover so the fact that we weren't allowed early check-in was very disappointing. We walked around the resort and came back promptly at 3pm and were told the manager needed 15 more minutes to... More

We have just returned from our 2 week stay and our 19th visit. I would just like to say this place is the best. The entertainment has improved this year and I think Birdman has put a lot of effort into his position of lead man. This year we stayed in one of the new cottages near the entrance of... More
