Royal Decameron Club Caribbean
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
This hotel is ok but i would say its a 3 star. Lovely place and very friendly. Cottages were basic but nice, bathrooms need up dating big time. Food: was very repetive and was never hot just warm. The coffee at the bar was always lukewarm.staff very happy and worked really hard, they really need a mention, especially Ordetta, and Adrian who was at the eggs station.beach: was beautiful and kept clean at all times.i think the rooms should have coffee and tea facilities, it would be nice to wake up to a cuppa. Also the lighting at night could be brighter as i found it quite dark at night getting back home. Also the wifi is really expensive and not free as advertised so be warned.shuttle bus to ochio only runs once a day at 9.30 at $10 for 2 hours this i feel should be a free and more regular service like other hotels. overall we had a fantastic stay but could be much better if could be addressed as this resort is a lovely place for families.
went for a one week all-inclusive. was pretty much as expected for a 3 1/2 star. grounds were really nice with tons of different fruit/nut trees. buffet food was actually decent for a smaller resort. caribbean ala carte was good - thai ala carte was terrible. bar drinks were cheap booze but again typical for a 3 1/2 star. only other thing that was disappointing was the beach/ocean was rocky so you needed water shoes to go in ocean. the grounds did have 2 pools so we just went there instead.
Always remember this hotel is only a 3star!! Visited in late November to December, weather was very hit and miss, the beach was not for us, lots of seaweed and very rough water(hence nobody in the sea) and dirty.Hotel itself was very dated, if you had a good shower you were lucky as the water only trickled and constantly went from burning you to freezing you, our room was not clean and everyday we would look to see if the cob webs and dirt was still there and it was, the gardens were very well looked after and the staff were all very friendly. The food was good and plenty of it. The pool was not clean so never swam the whole 2 weeks. Out side the hotel you would get hassled badly but if you visit Jamaica then you know your going to be offered a smoke for a past time. Dunn falls was great and nine mile was worth travelling to Jamaica because there you see the real Jamaica. I'm glad we have been to Jamaica but will not be returning but if we ever do then Negril would be the place as I've been told by many that the south side of the island is so different. But again this is only a 3star !!
we just returned from 7 (way too short) days at the RDCC. We loved our cottage, our location was fantastic, # 83 - close walk to beach and bar, restaurant, etc but far enough it was not really loud. We found staff to be very nice, check in was smooth and housekeeping/groundskeeping staff were great. Bartenders a tad hit and miss, servers in the restaurant generally fantastic. wish they didn't let people reserve tables by putting a chair up, but there was plenty of seating. We enjoyed the thai restaurant. not so much the Caribbean one. Generally found the food to be only ok. Always could find something to eat but very repetitive and I love chicken but found it to be mostly overcooked and dry. Ate a lot of eggs, bread, salad and cheese!! Never found the snack bar, there should be options closer - if they have it way out at the thai restuarant many people won't make the hike. I was worried about finding shade but shouldn't have been, lots of umbrellas , and the way the sun moves over the property it was easy to seek shade. Too bad we had incredibly windy, slightly cool weather. I would return.
Myself and my partner visited here for 2 weeks in December 2016. We arrived at hotel and our first impressions were that we had made the right choice and throughout our entire holiday we were proved right!The hotel reception area is small and welcoming, you can see directly out onto the pool area and to the beach as soon as you arrive.The cottages are dotted all along the shore line and in gardens. There is plenty of space between each one and is a lovely alternative to the traditional hotel setting. Our cottage was 124 situated in the garden but you could see the ocean as soon as you stepped outside. The cottage was very spacious, the bed was massive and very comfy and everything was clean and tidy. There a few little nicks here and there which remind you it is 3 star but are not even worth mentioning.The food was absolutely lovely. Quite a lot of choice, you can tell they make a real effort to do different foods and themes. Lots of traditional food too, a Jamaican we met outside of the hotel said that the food at Decameron is the best out of all the hotels. A little tip, if you get to breakfast in the restaurant later than 9am they may have run out of a few things like bacon, sausages etc.We tried the Asian and Jamaican restaurant, was nice for a change but we found we were more than happy with the buffet restaurant.There are a few different bars dotted around the shoreline, there's a bar with swings which has a nice pontoon to sit out on with beds and chairs. The main bar by the pool is where we went to most nights. They have lots of cocktails and drinks, the wine they had wasn't brilliant but everything else was great. Quite a few wasps but it's hot and there's sweet liquors etc dotted around so it's to be expected. I hate wasps but I managed ok.The entertainment was brilliant! I am not one for watching hotel entertainment in any country I've been too, but we gave it a chance on the first night and we were there pretty much every night after! There was also a beach party one night which was fab.The beach at the hotel is lovely, and the views from the restaurants are beautiful. It's quite small, but we never had a problem finding a lounger. The weather was beautiful most of the time, we were there for 15 days and there was rain about 3 days. There's not much to do for kids hence there was hardly any there when we went.There's not really anything to do outside of the hotel in runaway bay, you have to book tours etc to go out and about. Dunns river falls is 20 mins away and was a brilliant day out. You will need water shoes! Overall the hotel is lovely and we would stay there again as it's great value for what you get it doesn't feel like a 3 star hotel and it's feels quite authentic and romantic. Definately recommend it!
