We’ve just returned from a 7 day vacation at the RDCB. It was good, but nothing close to being fantastic. To be honest, I was expecting a bit more, but to be fair it is classified as a 4 star so I suppose I have to treat it as such.Pros: This hotel is small and very clean. Lovely ocean views from literally any room on the property. Ample sun loungers whether you’d prefer the pool or beach. Cute little coffee shop on the 2nd floor caters to all your java needs.Cons: This hotel advertises wifi throughout the resort, although don’t expect to get that. I was lucky to connect at all. Very spotty. Always cutting out, or nothing at all. This was an issue for me as I like to stay in touch on social media while on holidays. To some, this may not be an issue.- My room was kept tidy with room service each day. I didn’t have a problem with towel service until closer to the end of my stay. I politely asked the housekeeping staff for face cloths and they rudely responded “nope don’t have any”. This was 2 days in a row. Unacceptable in my opinion given I had left a tip each day for these workers.- Mini bar in the room was kept stocked with beer, coke and 2 small bottles of water. One evening I ran out of water to drink, went down to the front desk to ask for more and was brushed off by the staff by saying too bad you have to wait until tomorrow. Really? Again unacceptable in my opinion.- The food was just ok. My friends and I noticed that they ran out of literally everything so quickly and were not fast enough to replenish. I would highly recommend “The Grill”. We found ourselves eating there more often then the buffet dining hall. Better food, fresh, hot and made to order. Their pizza is delicious.- The staff on this resort were for the most part very kind and a lot of fun. Most will go out of their way to ensure your vacation is fantastic.Overall I did enjoy myself although I probably would not return to this property again. You get what you pay for. I tried it, wasn’t abundantly impressed. So I think I’ll stick to the Riu’s. Cheers, one love mon!!!
My husband and I stayed here for six days for a first time vacation to Jamaica. It was very convenient to get to, about 5 mins away for the airport and our taxi ride was only 15 dollars total for both of us. We arrived at night time and check in was very smooth. The manager, a young male, was always helpful considering my husband had quite a few requests. The first room we were put in was EXTREMELY humid. The papers and clothes we had were wet simply from being in the air. It was hot, hard to breath, and all the windows and mirrors were fogged. We only stayed in that room for one night and were moved to another room in the morning. The new room was better and it was the actual king bed we requested. The room however is very nice and the view is AMAZING. One of the biggest downsides for me with this room was the fact that the bed was severely uncomfortable. The bed was hard every night but we dealt with it. They clean the rooms anywhere from 9-5 and we always seemed to be the last ones. One of the absolute best parts about this resort is the food. If you are looking for an authentic taste of jamaica this is the place to eat. The food was fantastic and the chef that made the omelets in the morning was superb! The customer service was amazing all around, from the front desk to the guys at the water sport area. My husband and I loved the pool as well! On the beach the water sports are completely free. You can rent boards, kayaks, and snorkel gear for free all day and we loved that aspect. Another thing to note was the fact that it was not over crowded here and it was nice walking around. The beach is very clean! Although we enjoyed quite a few aspects of this hotel we most likely wouldn't stay again simply because of how hard the beds are. Other than that every thing was pretty good. Thanks again to all the staff who made our stay amazing!
My family and I (6 adults and 1 baby) stayed here in early September and had an amazing time! We had been to Jamaica a few times before, but stayed at some Spanish chain resorts, which we found lacked a true Jamaican culture and feel. This resort made up for those previous experiences, and then some.The resort is on the smaller side, but everything is within close range - the other Decameron property, Cornwall beach, the à la cartes, the pools, Doctor's Cave Beach, etc. In addition, this could be because of the time of year that we went (the first week of September), but we never had to wake up early to save beach and pool chairs for the day. There were always lots to choose from and lots of shaded areas. Our room was large and comfortable, and we had an incredible view of the ocean and nightly sunsets. We were also within walking distance to the hip strip, where there are an abundance of souvenir shops, restaurants, and convenience stores. Walking in this area felt very safe, even as we were walking back to the resort at night! We really enjoyed the food (great flavours and selection) and the nightly entertainment were all so talented. One of our favourites, was the steel drum band!A couple complaints were that the bathroom in one our rooms didn't work, and although staff were sent up numerous times to fix it, my family members struggled with it all week. Not a great thing to have to deal with. Also, we booked an excursion toward the end of our stay. The driver for the excursion arrived much earlier than scheduled and when they didn't see us there, turned around and left. Our money was refunded, but it was a huge disappointment not to be able to do that particular excursion. Lastly, every staff member (the entertainment, food services, management, maintenance, etc.) that we interacted with were great and very friendly, with the exception of one young girl at the front desk who seemed miserable the entire week!What we appreciated most at the resort, however, was a Jamaican staff, Jamaican music (live performers and DJ) and Jamaican food options each and every night. You can't really say you've been to Jamaica without all of these things and at some of the newer resorts on the island, this is really hard to find. We highly recommend this resort!
The property lures you in to an all inclusive deal, just so they can charge you on-site for a room safe and shampoo! Really, who charges for a room safe?? The property is no 4 star hotel, maybe 3 the most. The front desk shuts down after midnight and goes home. if you try to call with an issue you get voicemail. Male reception staff was lazy and unfriendly. My balcony door was no even lockable and management didn't care. The food buffet was not too bad - it may well be the only thing that was pleasant.
