Excellent Vacation!

This hotel doesn't have the best ratings but it should! The staff is amazing, the food was fantastic and the entertainment was great! It is a small resort so you don't have to walk forever to get from pool to pool or restaurant to restaurant. It is located on the Hip Strip which is a plus for us! We enjoyed getting out daily and walking up and down the strip and souvenir shopping! The beaches were small but nice and clean! We walked out of our room and onto the beach and we enjoyed snorkeling daily.

Great staff but some cons

The staff was super helpful and friendly and really completed our trip. However, there were a few issues. The restaurant that you were supposed to make reservations for was closed for our entire stay when it was supposed to only be closed Monday and Saturday, then the one day it was open, I tried to make reservations at 9 am and it was full. Reservations had to be made same day. Also, the water in the shower was awful, kept turning off and then it wouldn’t work on hot making showers pretty unpleasant. The place was a dead zone after 9:30 and the disco bar didn’t even stay open long enough like it was supposed to. Also, when booking through Apple excursions or Amstar the Dolphin Cove excursion was 2 hours off and I was never going to be picked up if not for me running into an employee and asking. I was going to have to take a cab to something I already spent 300 dollars on. I was also never told how to go about my departure time and then being 5 minutes from the airport had to go to the airport 3 hours early, making me miss the massage I booked for the morning of the trip. Lastly, there wasn’t an atm on the resort making it difficult to obtain cash and it felt unsafe. I wouldn’t come here again, at least not booking through Apple.

The only con about this hotel was the bugs in the room. I saw about 5 total, but the staff came right always to kill the bugs for me! The entertainment staff was amazing!

It would be appreciated if the 'no smoking' signs were enforced. Loved the resort and staff were over the top nice to us, every person we made contact with was great. Wish the pool and hot tub would have the option to be open later. I don't want to use the hot tub in the day time but it was closed at night when it was cool enough to get in! I would highly recommend this resort and look forward to coming back.

Everything is fabulous when you go somewhere that is familiar, you are treated with kindness and everyone works to make your stay wonderful! The staff is friendly and take care of everyting. The resort is clean, comfortable, not too big to get lost or overwhelmed. Having to pay for wifi would be my only critique!

I loved a lot of things about this hotel! Service and food left something to be desired. The people were nice and friendly. Entertainment was great! Hotel was clean and beaches were lovely. Excursions were easy to schedule. Room was cleaned well each day. Getting beach towels and renting snorkel gear was irritating as you had to have a card or some such nonsense. Could only get snorkel gear 30 minutes at a time... Weird... Overall the good definitely outweighed the bad. I had a great time and drank the best strawberry daiquiri I've ever had. Lifeguards were very friendly and enjoyable to talk to. Wait staff was always on top of things and were very friendly.

We have stayed at this hotel several times while in Jamaica. It is our favorite. Small enough you don't have crowds to deal with and every room has a beautiful view of the ocean. The staff is always very courteous and the hotel is maintained very well. This is one of the oldest resorts on the island and is so close to the airport it takes just minutes to get their upon landing. Always greeted with a smile and a drink. Would recommend this to any one wanting a quiet, restful vacation.

I visited Royal Decameron at Montego Beach for my Bday in January. It’s a bit rainy during January it’s winter weather lots of rain, but it clear’s up in it’ll be 80 degrees. The trip from the airport to the hotel was fine. check in was fine, and we requested a room change,we were able to get the ocean view that we requested. The hotel has a few shortcomings. The room is bland nothing special at all. Although I must say the bed was very comfortable.The bathrooms left something to be desired, there is not a safe in the room. The food was okay they had a special night “Jamaican night” oh what a surprise. Supposedly this was the night to get authentic Jamaican cuisine”. WTF were in Jamaica!!!! Get this no WiFi unless you pay 25/day, that was crazy because everyplace has free WiFi these days, especially all inclusive vacation resorts. They had some activities like bingo trivia and water aerobics. There is a disco on site that is open Saturday nights,didn’t know that when I checked in so the music was booming until about 3 am. There was a outdoor performance each night which was pretty okay I guess. I would visit Jamaica agsin but I would not stay at either Decameron resorts.

2nd trip to this location - will return again

We came back to the RDMB because we knew exactly what we were getting into. I can't give it 5 stars because it's not a 5 star resort. It's a 3 star resort. Go with that expectation and you'll be well pleased. The view cannot be beat, from the rooms, the beach, the swim up bar - can't ask for better. Location is close to the airport - you get there quick but you will hear planes all day - didn't bother us a bit. Rooms are clean as can be - did have a few issues with water pressure and temperature but again didn't bother us. Food is great, we love the snack bar - felt there was less options this time then previously but still great. The staff and the other guests (many of which are repeat guests) are what make this the perfect location for us. Can't wait to come back again next year!

Loved our stay

After reading reviews before going to the royal decameron we were a bit skeptical but after staying for a week this is my view on this place, if you’re looking for a fancy, pristine, 5 star resort with no flaws, then THIS IS NOT the place for you! If you’re like us who love low key, laid back & a fun atmosphere then this is just the place you need to kick back & relax! This resort has true Jamaica beach charm with views of the ocean that are just breathtaking, they have amazing snorkeling right off the beach or just hang out on the beds on the jetty where you can watch all sorts of sea life swim right past you. As for the food, none of us went hungry, the pastry chef is amazing!!!!! The staff are beyond wonderful & for the reviews I read that they aren’t well you get what you give?! As for having to pay for WiFi, actually it was nice not to see everyone stuck to their screens & actually having conversations with each other, & having to pay for a safe, it’s $2 a day it’s worth it to guard your valuables! Best of all it’s literally a 5 minute bus ride from airport so yes this is an older resort that shows signs in aging but it didn’t keep the 6 of us from having a fantastic time & can’t wait to go back!

I must say this is one of the worst. I am surprised to the fact that my friends and I were treated that way. As locals we went there just to take the stress off. Staff at the grill was very disrespectful. We order the food and it took forever when asked they all had smart ads remarks. We reported it to a supervisor nothing came from it. We went to the customer complaints desk and was told that an investigation will be done. I doubt it was, just to show you that we are not valued as a customer.

Hotel was run down, food and service was subpar. We stayed there 3 days then on to Cancun. BIG DIFFERENCE! I would not recommend this place! Not only do you pay for a safe lock (which by the way they were out of!) you pay for WiFi and can only use it by the pool. The only thing good were the drinks. Entertainment wasn’t very good either. What a waste of time! If I ever go back it won’t be at this hotel!!
