“Brilliant”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

Went for 2 weeks in September 2013. Had a fantastic time ,well worth the money compared to what we normally pay for going to Spain. Everything was great, food,entertainment, rooms and staff. Weather fantastic apart from one day we had a tropical storm (to be expected in hurricane season) This is a 3* Hotel which should be rated at least a 4* plus.

Why average? 5 stars given to the beaches and warm clear water. 5 stars the resort set up: cottages surrounded by beautiful gardens. 4 stars how friendly the Jamaicans are overall, but 2 stars to the staff serving the food and bartenders. The food 2 stars. The drinks 2 stars. The cottages 2 stars (they need lots of TLC). BE AWARE if you go shopping. They like to play the game of how much money they can get from the tourists. Some stores will double the real price of the items sold to Jamaicans, others maybe just 60% more. DO NOT buy at the first store you find, shop around , make notes, and find the right price. IF you take the time to do this, you will save half the money spent, or buy twice as much.

Room Tip: Some new cottages have been built and some others remodeled. Ask if you can get one of those, but do...

We stayed at the Royal Decameron Fun Club in Feb. I went with my 2 sister-in-laws. We had a very good time. The people were very friendly. The food was awesome. Never had to worry about what to eat, there was a great selection. The only thing i would change would be a balcony at your room. We didnt know there wasnt one and with 3 people in a room we cold have used one. We cojld have gotton a ground floor room if we had known. Everything was perfect and we enjoyed our selves.

I love this hotel and the team there!
It's the hospitality they provide that makes this hotel fabulous.

The staff are amazing, SCOOBY is the best! As is Adrian who makes omelettes at breakfast please say hello to them both from Tessa & Layla (the gangster girl with braids and tattoos)
Empress, vanilla and princess are the sweetest of girls, want your hair braided and empress will sort you out and it WILL be amazing.

George the life guard is a sweetie and the public areas cleaners are wonderful, they were teaching me patois each day!

The food was lovely, something for everyone and served all day pretty much, the beach is spotlessly clean and the beach attendants should be commended for that.

Our rooms were cleaned everyday, our belongings were safe, we also hired a safe for out money and passports at a reasonable price.

Ameril our holiday rep was brill, organised all our trips, I don't usually use reps but as this was a relaxing holiday having her organise the trips meant the hassle was removed and we enjoyed each one. Definitely worth a visit are the following:- blue mountains bike tour, Nine mile, Dunns river falls on the catamaran, dolphins cove, glistening waters

I would not hesitate in rebooking this hotel, in fact I'm looking for next year already. The rooms are little cottages which are sweet and all you need on holiday let's face it, what kind of holiday would it be if you spent all your time in your room???

We stayed here for 2 weeks at the end of September. For starters the weather was wonderful for those concerne about the weather at this time of the year, we had a bit of rain and some clouds in the afternoon but aside from these minor times it was hot hot hot!

We continued to be impressed by the immaculate grounds and beaches that were constantly being cared for and maintained. The wonderful cottage style rooms were basic but had everything you needed and provided a welcome change to the usual high rise hotels. We took our own kettle!

There was a good mixture of fresh food ranging from an excellent range of salads, international dishes and local cuisine. You couldn't ask for anything more from this level of hotel, it surpassed our expectations by far.

All the staff were welcoming and friendly. Nightly entertainment was cheesy but fun and the team worked hard to involve everyone and make sure they enjoyed themselves. the singers were great and the hotel dance club were extremely talented.

One annoying point was the wifi, fair enough you can only get it in reception but it would constantly go off after a minute which made it hard to use at all. Overall the hotel was exceptional value for money and the staff wonderful. We will happily be returning.

We went in july. We had chosen from the pictures the room that were closest to the exits big huge
mistake, the room was shabby and needed new construction, They need to tear all of those rooms down, big diference from the cottage style rooms they have closer to the beach, so we changed to those rooms but had to pay a up grade fee which I was not happy with I just felt like they could have been more accommodating by waiving that fee, because I would not have given them a dime for that other room it even smelled like roach spray. They gave us a broken iron, and one evening
there was two people having wild sex on one of the piers standing up I was out appalled not cool unclassy I guess the hotel attracts those type of people. Any way I will never never stay at The Royal Decameron again last time and only time.
