Does anyone know of any hotels in Runaway Bay, or between Runaway Bay and Ocho Rios that are a maximum of three floors ?

RDCC are individual cottages in runaway bay or the hibiscus suites (3 floors) club ambiance are also a few floors I think unsure about breezes though although some of the other forumsters will be able to give you a better guide

Rooms on the Beach is 3 floors, Sunset Jamaica Grande is many floors, well over three (except the Cabanas) - Turtle Beach Towers is more than 3

What and where is "RDCC" ?

We stayed at Turtle Beach Towers. It is the luck of the draw. It is mostly condominiums - so quality of each unit varies greatly.

The Sunset Jamaica Grande is way too big. The height of the hotel exceeds the width of its beach.

RDCC=Royal Decameron Club Caribbean

I don't recall any building at Breezes Runaway bay being over 3 stories, in fact I think they're all 2.

Just curious why a maximum of three stories?

I put a maximum of three stories because we do not like tropical high rise

( 4 + floors) buildings. It sort of takes the edge off if you have to take an elevator to your room after being on the beach. Ditto for going down a corridor to your room.

We have always stayed in resorts with low-rise accomodation, save two - .The Blau Varadero, a fourteen story building was not at all to our liking, ditto for the Turtle Beach Resort which had eleven (?) floors..

Also , the layout of low rise cottages ( for us ) is preferable.

Makes sense to me and legitimate reasons.
