“october holiday”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

Just had one of my best holidays ever.Don't know what some of the muppets who gave a negative review were thinking when they came here.They are maybe used to the finer things in life,like McDonalds and KFC.The food was of great quality and always served with professionalism and a smile.
Yes,the rooms are slightly dated,but they were comfortable and everything was in working order,with fresh towels whenever you wanted them,and bedding changed regularly.The entertainment team were great, and the rest of the nightly entertainment was good.
The biggest bugbear about the trips was the length of time spent on the coach when on the mountain roads, but no blame can be attached to the hotel.
Two of the best staff in the hotel were Ollisha,the barmaid at the adults only pool, and Kyle ,the lifeguard.They really made the holiday extra special, as did all the staff in their own way.
So if you are thinking of going to Jamaica, this hotel needs to be near the top of your list.
PS,the beaches are cracking and the water warm.

Room Tip: Get a room in the garden area or beach side.

We stayed at the hotel for 2 weeks in October. First of all I have to say I please don't listen to the negative feedback on here. It maybe a 3 star holiday, but the staff and food are all 5 star. The rooms are very clean and you get fresh towels everyday if you want. Ya sure the rooms could do with updating, but its a fantastic resort with a great quality and choice of food. The entertainment team are first rate (all of them) great fun during the day and in the evening. All the bar staff are great and it only takes them a couple of days to get to know what you drink, a real personal touch. We heard some really negative reports from other hotels, including "Sandals" and ya sure some people turned up at this hotel expecting a hotel you would find in Dubai and then moan about what they find, but we won't go to any other resort when we go back, everybody is so friendly and really makes it a great resort to visit.
All the trips we did were all great, we did:
Cool runnings
Nine mile
Martha brae river
Dolphin cove
Horse riding throw the sea
And the shopping trip to Ocha Rias which was an experience.
We would like to also thank Davian for giving us a fantastic last dinner with dinner on one of the piers.

Went for 2 weeks in September 2013. Had a fantastic time ,well worth the money compared to what we normally pay for going to Spain. Everything was great, food,entertainment, rooms and staff. Weather fantastic apart from one day we had a tropical storm (to be expected in hurricane season) This is a 3* Hotel which should be rated at least a 4* plus.

Why average? 5 stars given to the beaches and warm clear water. 5 stars the resort set up: cottages surrounded by beautiful gardens. 4 stars how friendly the Jamaicans are overall, but 2 stars to the staff serving the food and bartenders. The food 2 stars. The drinks 2 stars. The cottages 2 stars (they need lots of TLC). BE AWARE if you go shopping. They like to play the game of how much money they can get from the tourists. Some stores will double the real price of the items sold to Jamaicans, others maybe just 60% more. DO NOT buy at the first store you find, shop around , make notes, and find the right price. IF you take the time to do this, you will save half the money spent, or buy twice as much.

Room Tip: Some new cottages have been built and some others remodeled. Ask if you can get one of those, but do...

We stayed at the Royal Decameron Fun Club in Feb. I went with my 2 sister-in-laws. We had a very good time. The people were very friendly. The food was awesome. Never had to worry about what to eat, there was a great selection. The only thing i would change would be a balcony at your room. We didnt know there wasnt one and with 3 people in a room we cold have used one. We cojld have gotton a ground floor room if we had known. Everything was perfect and we enjoyed our selves.

I love this hotel and the team there!
It's the hospitality they provide that makes this hotel fabulous.

The staff are amazing, SCOOBY is the best! As is Adrian who makes omelettes at breakfast please say hello to them both from Tessa & Layla (the gangster girl with braids and tattoos)
Empress, vanilla and princess are the sweetest of girls, want your hair braided and empress will sort you out and it WILL be amazing.

George the life guard is a sweetie and the public areas cleaners are wonderful, they were teaching me patois each day!

The food was lovely, something for everyone and served all day pretty much, the beach is spotlessly clean and the beach attendants should be commended for that.

Our rooms were cleaned everyday, our belongings were safe, we also hired a safe for out money and passports at a reasonable price.

Ameril our holiday rep was brill, organised all our trips, I don't usually use reps but as this was a relaxing holiday having her organise the trips meant the hassle was removed and we enjoyed each one. Definitely worth a visit are the following:- blue mountains bike tour, Nine mile, Dunns river falls on the catamaran, dolphins cove, glistening waters

I would not hesitate in rebooking this hotel, in fact I'm looking for next year already. The rooms are little cottages which are sweet and all you need on holiday let's face it, what kind of holiday would it be if you spent all your time in your room???
