This is perhaps one of the most under-rated hotels on the island. Technically it is a 3-star but in reality it is much better. Yes, the accommodation lacks the marble-clad finery of more prestigious places such as the Grand Bahia or RIU Ocho Rios but if you want clean, comfortable, beautiful accommodation is a wonderfully relaxed environment, this is the...

Have just been informed that the WiFi is not in the all inclusive price, in this day and age. A sour taste in the mouth, but I must keep an open mind for the rest of the holiday. Stand by for further updates, but not during the holiday, no WiFi!!!

Nice 3 star hotel. Rooms are mostly cottages either along ocean or nestled in lush gardens. Cottages are bit dated and in need of renovation. Sheets are clean but areas inside cottage a bit grubby. Windows of cottages filthy. Stay clear of cottage 116 and 117 very noisy from waves crashing and not a great view. Also cottage 63 right... More

It was a nice environment to relax with family and friends, however, our joyous mood was spoilt when my cousin's car was dented by another driver in the East parking lot. We were never notified of the incident, even though the car alarm must have gone off. When we informed the front desk of the issue, we were told to... More

Just returned from a fabulous holiday with my family at the Royal Decameron Hotel, Jamaica. Spent 2 weeks whilst celebrating a wedding ( mid August 2015). I was fortunate to reside in a cottage which was very cosy and appropriate for the stay. Staff were always pleasant, (some more than others) and most were prepared to go the extra mile.... More

Just returned from a brilliant family holiday at the Royal Decameron Club Caribbean Hotel, Runaway Bay, Jamaica. Spent 11 nights with my husband and 2 children whilst celebrating a wedding (August 2015). We were in cottage 71 which was very cosy and appropriate for the stay. Staff were always pleasant, and many were prepared to go the extra mile. The... More

Overall this was a good resort. The beds and pillows were comfortable and the rooms and grounds were well-maintained and clean. The food was delicious, and the resort tried to include local dishes as much as possible. The only downside to the resort was the fact that everything stopped at 5 pm. All the pools were closed, restaurants, equipment rental... More

Just got back from a week long stay, will do at least ten days next time. Had a lovely cottage at the far end of the beach , close to the booze liner bar. Ok some cottages could do with updating, but only really need a lick of paint. It does not distract from the Jamaican feel. Rooms were spotlessly... More

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
