Royal Decameron Club Caribbean
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Stayed here for two weeks in April/May for my husbands 50th. Had a beachfront cottage which was amazing, to wake up in the morning and step out on to the sand and be metres away from the sea. Food was very good, always something different to eat over the fortnight. All the waiters and waitresses work very hard and are always very pleasant. Entertainment were very good. Spice what energy you have and Mr kool, stay shiny. My only criticism is there sound system, come on management get them a decent one they deserve. Neisha Jones, a lovely young lady, you are a credit to this hotel, thank you so much for sorting out our problem with regarding noise during the night, also for the surprise in the decorations for Andy's 50th. Gardens are kept immaculate and are lovely to stroll around. Life guards are always on the ball, Casanova, it was like having our very own radio station on the beach, keep up the singing. This was our third visit to Jamaica 🇯🇲 and our second time at this resort. We loved it just as much as the first time if not more and are definitely booking for next June. Did a few trips again, we had already did Dunns falls, Blue mountain bike trip, Mystic Mountain etc on previous visits so this time went to Martha Brae river which was so relaxing, and to the Blue hole which was lots of fun, thanks to Berne and Sara our new friends for a fun day. We visited Scotchies and had lunch, the jerk sauce is mega mega hot, but food very tasty. Bob also took us up into the rainforest, beautiful views from the top and thank you for being very informative about Jamaican culture. We also visited Sharkies just a 10 min walk from Royal Decameron, relaxing afternoon and had a few red stripes with Sandra and Kolin another couple we met. Wooloomooloo to you two and will definitely take a trip down too see you guys soon. Although this is not a five star resort, but definitely deserves five stars for making sure we had another fantastic holiday. So thank you again to all staff at the Royal Decameron Club Caribbean for an amazing two weeks, see you next year, Andy and Sharon McMann 😀💞😀
We stayed 8th - 23rd March and loved this resort. If there was a bigger lounge area away from the pool and separate bar, this would easily have been 4 star. It is small and friendly which is unusual for an All Inclusive resort and I would return for this reason. This resort has the most "returning guests" and it is easy to see why. It is safe and ideal for children. Although the beach is manmade and made up of small coves, there is the advantage that there are no beach sellers and you are left alone. The downside is the seaweed, cloudy water, rocky and you cant walk along the beach - however, this is balanced out by the good points. Lots of sunbeds, isolated areas, near to the bar, of which there is access to 3 along 3 small coves and another quiet bar at the quiet pool which is another lovely location. You can sail and hire pedaloes and canoes free of charge.On first arrival at the resort it was karaoke in the evening and it didnt give us good first impressions but if you join in, the entertainment staff are very funny and work really hard, especially Raiza and Mr Cool. We had quite a bit of rain the second week and so joined in and played bingo, cards, and went cycling into the community which I would recommend. The entertainment in the evening rotated over two weeks and nothing was repeated. I wasnt so keen on the team shows but the resident and outside bands were excellent and also the 3 guys who played lunchtime and evening were entertaining if not always in tune. This was the only AI resort I have been to where the buffet 3 times a day did not get boring and we always looked forward to the food. Each evening was a themed evening and our favourites were the mexican and international included an English Roast Dinner. Throughout the fortnight it was all really good of a very high standard, fresh and hot and beautifully displayed. The restaurant staff gave a 5 star service and our particular favourites from morning to evening were Kermit, Odayne, Kevan, Roisheen, Clavine. Barstaff Michael on the main bar, Gareth Lifeguard at the Quiet Pool. They stood out for us but they were all really good and underwent extensive training, at least in the restaurant. It was a shame that we had to drink out of plastic and also the house wine was very sweet and so were the cocktails. If you want any decent wine, you needed to pay extra but this resort was extremely good value. The reception staff were also very bubbly and helpful. We tried both the A La Carte restaurants but we didnt think they were as good as the buffet. We were actually served the same meal at each restaurant but called a different name! Downside were you werent allowed to book tables but when I tried to book for my Partners birthday, they were booked by regulars which shouldnt be allowed. I did eventually get the table though and our room was also decorated with rose petals which was lovely.The Huts were huge with a king size bed, ensuite shower, air conditioning and a walk in wardrobe, iron and ironing board, hairdryers etc. Cleaned daily. We had room 85 which was a few rows back from the sea and lovely and quiet. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained and the birds can always be heard singing. Although a little tatty, the huts were quirky and my favourite part of this resort.Outside of the resort Jamaica is quite shabby and there is loads of rubbish not cleared up which was disappointing. We did actually hire a car and drove ourselves around and got to see quite a lot. I am so glad we stayed at Runaway Bay as it is close to Nine Mile and also Dunns River Falls as well as Ocho Rios where it is safe to go shopping and there is a big market. Montego Bay and Negril are several hours away from these main attractions. There are also lots of sellers hassling you outside of the resort and everything is really expensive such as entrance fees & gifts. Pauline's shop immediately outside the resort was best value and also even the airport was CHEAPER which gives you some idea of the costs.The highlights of my holiday were the huts, food, jetty bar at sunrise having a cocktail, such a lovely location. My Partner had the best birthday ever and despite some poor weather during the second week, we had a lovely time and a very fun holiday. If ever anyone was visiting Jamaica I would recommend this resort. Hats off to the Staff who make the holiday special and always seem happy and cheerful. This is a great value 3 star resort which far exceeded my expectations. Anyone who moans about this place, needs to pay double the price for a 5 star where you are split into "privilege" groups, which was not the case here. I hope it doesnt change!
We have been 4 times to the royal decameron, going back in Feb 2018. The whole resort is perfect from the bungalows beaches food drink and especially the staff! The 2 staff which stand out the most are in the buffet restaurant, David white and a young lad at night with the surname mcbean can't remember his first name. All of the other staff our first class too. Each meal time their are plenty of options to choose from , coffee is good quality and the red stripe Appleton rum and mud slides are good all inclusive standard drinks . We are now counting down till feb
Giving it 5 stars mainly because of the staff - from reception, cleaners, maintenance, gardeners, lifeguards, bars to restaurant - ALWAYS smiling and happy to help you. The restaurant service staff were excellent (a special shout for Philip, Roshaine and Dwayne in the Jasmine Delta - we thoroughly enjoyed all 4 evenings with you- I hope you haven't lost your glasses Philip! ;)) Too many great staff to name individually but you made our stay unique and memorable. Loved the cottage/hut room , we thought was spacious and different to normal boring hotel room! The setting and beach were beautiful, would revisit and highly recommend .
Just back from 2 amazing weeks at this hotel, the people are so friendly, laid back and relaxing special mention to Yvonne our lovely maid who did more than was necessary worth her weight in gold, special mention to akeme mckenzie our lovely waiter such a hard worker saw to our every need, the food was very repetitive but tasty and plenty of, weather a bit disappointing mixture of sun and rain but never cold, probably wrong time of year to visit, gift shop on complex over priced as was wifi package, 20 dollars for 24 hours and often lose connection, on the whole was a lovely relaxing holiday would definitely go back
