So I usually travel very high class, 5 star plus..This all inclusive may not be what I'm used to but it sure was an experience. The feeling you get when you stay at Royal Decameron Cornwall Beach is one that I now crave and miss. The beach was to die for, I spent countless hours swimming in the crystal clear blue water. The coffee was amazing, food was good, the property was nice, above all the staff really made the stay exceed our expectations. Everyone was super friendly and made the vacation very special, especially Elvis, the night manager, who will forever have a special place in my heart.
Travelled with my family to the Royal Decameron Cornwall Beach from July 29-Aug 5/17. We have stayed in many all-inclusives over the years in Cuba and the Dominican Republic. This was our first time in Jamaica and there was a distinctly different vibe than the above mentioned islands. Most of the guests were American, English and French Canadian. It was a super hot and sunny week (about 33C feeling like ~46C) with only 2 short rain showers mid day.Positives:-Small resort with only 146 rooms; if you are looking for a compact hotel with a very short walk to the beach and pool then this is the hotel for you-5 minute ride from the airport. You do see planes landing over the beach but it's not constant and was not bothersome to us-All rooms are ocean front although the 1st floor does not have the greatest view-Beautiful new hotel; everything still had the new feel; crisp, clean and modern-Beautiful sunsets-Fridge included in the room with 2 beers, 2 waters and 2 Cokes-Rooms were a good size, good a/c; not many drawers but not a big deal-Clean hotel; staff always seen organizing and cleaning-We enjoyed all our meals. Maybe slightly less selection than some other hotels we have stayed at but everything was flavourful-loved the jerk chicken, salad bar, lots of cheeses, great breakfast choices and authentic Jamaican choices to try-Great food safety and handling practices observed...this did not go unnoticed to me so congrats to the hotel for that..also no flies lingering around the buffet which was great!-Beautiful beach with warm crystal clear turquoise water and appropriate for children. There were some small pebbles/rocks a little further in but I feel did not warrant water shoes. FYI beach is small/short-We usually never use the pool while away but it was so hot and nice to hang out there. The pool looked new and clean. Childrens pool was attached to adult pool-Nice snorkelling right on the beach to the left and right-Wifi included but spotty-Shade via trees/palapas available and never a problem to find a spot-Nice coffee bar on the 2nd floor...delicious iced coffee!!!-Nice view and sitting area on the 5th floor which was not really advertised-Able to use the amenities at the sister hotel next door (Decameron Montego Bay). We only went there for shows and to walk a little-Long board, kayaks, windsurf, snorkelling gear included. You can go out on a hobie cat with a staff member...brought us right under the flight path where you can almost touch the plane when landing-cool experience-Activities board is now up-Some good shows; beach party was fun, steel band show etc-Lots of security around-Almost no mosquitoes!So many positives things..here are some suggestions I would have:-More umbrellas around the pool area....there are only a handful-Better signs indicating where things are located around the hotel especially towel exchange and washroom by the pool which we only discovered the 2nd last day before leaving-Most staff were great others not very friendly-would suggest more education on customer service-Would have been nice to have a friendlier welcome from the front desk when we arrived and a welcome drink (although I did see drinks offered the day we left)-No kids club..would be nice and more activities for children to keep them occupied-We would like more activities on the beach and music but some like it more quiet so it's hard to please everyone-Continue traditional Jamaican music around the resort; mix up the music played at the pool as it got repetitive-Evening entertainment in lobby bar was only ok for us-Buffet staff service was hit and miss; would suggest more workers in the buffet area-Would be nice to have shampoo and conditioner; never been to a resort that doesn't offer this..even Cuban hotels do!-Safe not includedOverall we had a nice, relaxing time. The resort was a little quieter than we are used to but I guess that's why you are supposed to go next door to watch shows etc. I'm glad we payed a little extra to stay here because the hotel is new and the beach is great.
This hotel is spotless. The food was very good. . Front desk very helpful to your needs especially Elvis who was fantastic. The rooms are great as they are all icean front. Unfortunately for me it said that It had ramps for people with disabilities as I need a walker to get around but this was not the case. It did have ramps for pool but not for the a la carte restaurants which I was not able to go because it had stairs as I am unable to climb stairs. The same went for the Spa which I really wanted to go but it also has stairs and very narrow entrance. The beach area was not good for people with disabilities either though no fault of the hotel of course but the entry to the water was on a slant. You can go in but very hard to come out even for people who are healthy. So for these reasons I cannot return, which is a shame for me as if it was not for the stair issues and the beach I would definitely go back. This hotel is excellent .
The Hotel is nice,beach is l oveley minus the sea Urchins. Staff nice. Shout out to Hauris Pool Bar man. Plenty jokes.The Hotel has a good set up. But I would definitely recommend bars staying open past 9pm. And more entertainment. I booked new hotel for a reason. So always being pointed in the direction of old hotel for late bar (past 9/10) and entertainment was alittle disappointing. But overall l lovely place. Would recommend. But the bar situation really needs to step up. Sometimes it felt like there was nothing to do after 9pm. Nap time was not an option. I was in Jamaica!Rooms for improvements but no regrets 😊
We decided to take a cuban vacation in may of 2017 , when we went to book we seen cornwall beach was on sale and decided to go to jamacia !! We absolutely loved this hotel it was perfect ! The food drinks (dirty bannanas) were all perfect ! We spent everyday at the beach never a problem getting chairs the ocean was like a bath so warm. Loved all the staff so accommodating with the exception of some not so happy workers in buffet we went to margaritaville one day for lunch it was very enjoyable. With all that said we just booked for oct 28th and r bringing a couple friends with us. We have put in a request for the superior room as there r only 4 and u must have 2 rooms booked to get it. So fingers crossed ! I sure hope as a return guest in less than a yr and bringing new guests they will try to accommodate us. We also have asked for 630 reservations for cornwalls ala carte restaurant the day we arrive as we only land at 4. So excited to call this resort home for another werk real soon. Book this resort u will not be disappointed.
