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!

A few suggestions and comments on a great experience!
Feb 16 2016
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!

Good not great!

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.

If you are looking for a great place to relax, this is it. If you are looking to do it in the lap of luxury it isn't. Don't get me wrong, it was nice and the service and food were great, but it was not five star. We loved that it was a five minute ride from the airport. The public areas were nicer than the rooms, but everything was slightly dated. The beds and pillows left a lot to be desired but the air conditioner was great. The bartenders and entertainment staff were super friendly and always willing to help. Drinks were local well brands and Red Stripe beer. other guests were laid back and just looking for a good time, not trying to impress. Make reservations every morning for the Jamaican fusion restaurant for dinner. It is awesome and the way to go for dinner, especially the steak and mashed potatoes. The buffet was great for breakfast, made to order omelets, waffles, and French toast and much more. Lunch was good, and dinner was ok. The snack bar was very good, but I wish the hours were longer. The bread everywhere was wonderful. The pools were small, but there was always more than enough chairs to go around. Same for the beach, no fighting over chairs like at some other all inclusives I've been to. It's nice that the hotel is on the hip strip, but if you go out be prepared to be hounded right away and for the entire time. They have nightly buses to and from Margaritaville and Pier One if that's your thing. Looking forward to going back.

Good service overall...

I talk to the Apple Vacations rep at the hotel every time I go to Royal Decameron, but I never get the information under my door the day before, for shuttle pick-up time to return to the airport. And, the shuttle never comes, so we have to get the concierge at the hotel to call a taxi to take us to the airport.

Awesome Vacation

From the moment we arrived the customer service was OUTSTANDING!. We were very pleased with the facilities, the staff, the island on a whole. It was the best vacation I ever had and we are already planning our next trip to the same place. We were a little apprehensive given some horror stories we had heard, but were very pleased when we arrived!

Hands down my favourite vacation yet! I loved it so much. The food was great, I’m a vegetarian and was pleased to see there was plenty to choose from. The rooms were basic, yet nice and clean with a beautiful view of the turquoise water. The staff were amazing. A couple of them that stood out to me were Marshall at the pool bar. He really knows his job well. He had such a great attitude, was hard working and always smiling and laughing with people. I could go to the bar and he would remember my name and what I liked to drink- that’s a good bartender! His service is a 10/10 for sure. Darren and Chris by the gym were also very kind and personable. I was so pleased with the resort and staff that I will be back for Christmas and New Years for 14 days and can’t wait to get back there.

We had a great time at the Royal Decameron. Nice and clean accommodations. Very central location! Most staff were polite and kind. My favorite staff and entertainer was Al (dancer). From the very first day he stood out! Amazing attitude! A joie de vivre! I wish him all the best! He's definitely a credit to the establishment.

Year Six at this same property...and still loving it!!

Once again we had a great girls' trip to Montego Bay, and as usual, we had a FANTASTIC stay at this resort. We love the food--so fresh and delicious. We especially enjoy the made-to-order omelet and pasta stations. The snack bar hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza, and fries are wonderful. They taste hot and fresh. And the breads are so fresh and delicious. The rooms were clean and comfortable. This year we requested a specific room and Andrai at the front desk had it ready for us. We were so impressed by the personal touches of the entire front desk staff. They helped us book massages and always greeted us with a smile. Speaking of massages, Diane was incredible! Definitely will book with her again next time. The entertainment was super fun especially the beach night. Kevin, Jermaine, Darren, and Denesha did an excellent job. We had fun trying archery and playing random games. Glitters dance club was fun. Sharlette was our favorite server. She was ready for us every day and was always filling up our water bottles for us. Fitzroy continues to be our favorite bartender. AND A VERY SPECIAL SHOUT OUT to Marsha at the snack bar who helped me get my sunglasses out from underneath a wooden floor plank. She saw them fall in and I thought they were gone for good. But she would not give up! She said, "We will get them." She got Yanni the lifeguard to help, and together they saved those sunglasses for me. It was incredible. It just speaks to the spirit of the staff at Royal Decameron. Just nice, dedicated, lovely people. We are already counting down until next year's trip!

Really bad experiences.

Great rooms, good food, nice beach and really RUDE staff. It's sad people knowing that if they give a good service they could get tips but even like that MOST of the employees look like they work there with no pleasure at all (almost none of them greet back and even the Bartender from the AM at the lobby said that he didnt have to be polite when I asked him why he didnt answer back.... SOO dissapointing). On top of that I heard about two different group of people that GOT MONEY STOLEN FROM THEIR ROOM and apparently nor the manager/hotel or the travel agency did anything which made me feel so unsafe. Then again, Nice place with really bad experiences.. I would not recommend it at all.

Awesome 3 star!!!!
