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!
Nov 01 2015
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.

Hotel needs new beds and pillows. Pillows are hard as rocks. Food is good, had to wait additional time for restaurants to open.

Great hotel for the price, we would go back in a heartbeat.

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.

Best 30th Birthday EVERRR!!!!
Simi O,
Wed Dec 12 05:09:43 EST 2018
Where do I start. This is my second time at the Royal Decameron Montego Beach and also my 2nd time in Jamaica. I chose this second time to go for my 30th bday with some girlfriends because of how amazing my time there was the first time around. I didn't think it was possible to top the first time but I was wrong and me and my girls will be back a million times over. It's a smaller resort but clean and the staff is literally amazing. Although it is not considered a "5 star" resort you would never know I'm certain you wouldn't get the same above and beyond attitude at what some may consider higher scale. It's much more affordable than the others I wouldn't go anywhere else to be honest. They definitely make your stay there so memorable and they really care they really are the nicest people I have ever met. They go above and beyond to make you have the most amazing time. Sharlotte is my girl she surprised me with a whole birthday set up in the dining area without any of my friends asking her to, she gave us such a warm welcome every day like she has known us for years we will never forget her. Showayne is someone we met the first time I came and we were so happy to see she was still there and of course gave the best customer service we love her she is the sweetest. The entertainment staff is unreal they made me feel like a celeb the whole week for my bday and made it be known to everyone on the resort lol I felt like a star! Jermaine (we called him jermz for short) Skittles, Javed and Elysha(she is literally our favorite bartender) Jimar (we loved him) all of them made our experience so amazing and for the first timers that came with me, this is where they want to go when they come back. The food was great the beach beautiful. The only suggestion I would make is to keep the pool bar open a little longer that part of the day is always so fun. The dancers we great to just 5 starts all around. Thank you again for making my 30th a forever memory <3

We have been here frequently and enjoy the tranquility of a beautiful beach, along with friendly staff and great food. Everything is close together so not a lot of walking. We love this place, friendly staff, free shuttles to pier 1 and margaritaville, on the hip strip and convenience Easy going and laid back just our speed. Be there soon.....

Another return to Decameron

I do believe this is the seventh time we have stayed at the Decameron and if it is high end you want - skip it! If you want multiple restaurants - skip it! If you want glitzy entertainment - skip it! So just what does it have? Admittedly the resort is showing its age and their sister resort next door (Cornwall Beach) may be more suitable and expensive. But back to the have. A great staff - I have never had a surly encounter in all my stays. Front desk, wait staff, maintenance, - everything. The next is the food. They have one small specialty restaurant that requires reservations (easy to get) and the main restaurant is your typical Buffet, but the food is not typical. Kidneys and later liver available for breakfast is a real treat for my wife. The variety is there for fish, meats, and local versions of food. The desserts are exceptional. On our last visit, we had a maintenance issue that was resolved in five minutes. The resort has long had a regular clientele. A nice beach, quiet rooms, enough alcohol, tours available, and the price is right - we paid about $150 USD per night. The hotel has about 180 rooms and since we stayed the first week in December it was probably half filled.

Fun in the sun

We visited rom December 2-7. The resort is very CLEAN. Skittles , Jermaine and Tamika where awesome!!! Skittles and Jermaine were part of the entertainment crew and they were the best at making your time there FUN. Tamika set up photo shoots and she was probably the nicest person I met in Jamaica. So many activities! All three of them made it a point to make my son feel loved!!!! Of course we can’t forget the bar tenders, They rock! The food had a pretty good variety but it was typical resort food. We enjoyed snorkeling, paddle boarding and kayaking on the beach.

Great for an adult vacation!!

Once again another great week here. Good food, fun staff and right on the hip strip. Couple downfalls is the snack bar could have better hours and stay open later. The swim up bar and entertainment bar should also stay open later, not really much happening after 1:00 Rooms are dated but very clean. It’s definitely the perfect resort for adults which we lived!! Nobody brings their kids here, they take them to family resorts with more activities and water park! Would recommend this resort for adults!!
