Awesome place to stay!
Great place on the beach! Would love to stay again!
The only con about this hotel was the bugs in the room. I saw about 5 total, but the staff came right always to kill the bugs for me! The entertainment staff was amazing!
A few suggestions and comments on a great experience!
It would be appreciated if the 'no smoking' signs were enforced. Loved the resort and staff were over the top nice to us, every person we made contact with was great. Wish the pool and hot tub would have the option to be open later. I don't want to use the hot tub in the day time but it was closed at night when it was cool enough to get in! I would highly recommend this resort and look forward to coming back.
Everything is fabulous when you go somewhere that is familiar, you are treated with kindness and everyone works to make your stay wonderful! The staff is friendly and take care of everyting. The resort is clean, comfortable, not too big to get lost or overwhelmed. Having to pay for wifi would be my only critique!
Good not great!
I loved a lot of things about this hotel! Service and food left something to be desired. The people were nice and friendly. Entertainment was great! Hotel was clean and beaches were lovely. Excursions were easy to schedule. Room was cleaned well each day. Getting beach towels and renting snorkel gear was irritating as you had to have a card or some such nonsense. Could only get snorkel gear 30 minutes at a time... Weird... Overall the good definitely outweighed the bad. I had a great time and drank the best strawberry daiquiri I've ever had. Lifeguards were very friendly and enjoyable to talk to. Wait staff was always on top of things and were very friendly.
We have stayed at this hotel several times while in Jamaica. It is our favorite. Small enough you don't have crowds to deal with and every room has a beautiful view of the ocean. The staff is always very courteous and the hotel is maintained very well. This is one of the oldest resorts on the island and is so close to the airport it takes just minutes to get their upon landing. Always greeted with a smile and a drink. Would recommend this to any one wanting a quiet, restful vacation.
Hotel needs new beds and pillows. Pillows are hard as rocks. Food is good, had to wait additional time for restaurants to open.
The place, people, and amenities are always consistent. You can depend on the service, the food, and the friendly nature of the staff.
Great hotel for the price, we would go back in a heartbeat.
If you are looking for a great place to relax, this is it. If you are looking to do it in the lap of luxury it isn't. Don't get me wrong, it was nice and the service and food were great, but it was not five star. We loved that it was a five minute ride from the airport. The public areas were nicer than the rooms, but everything was slightly dated. The beds and pillows left a lot to be desired but the air conditioner was great. The bartenders and entertainment staff were super friendly and always willing to help. Drinks were local well brands and Red Stripe beer. other guests were laid back and just looking for a good time, not trying to impress. Make reservations every morning for the Jamaican fusion restaurant for dinner. It is awesome and the way to go for dinner, especially the steak and mashed potatoes. The buffet was great for breakfast, made to order omelets, waffles, and French toast and much more. Lunch was good, and dinner was ok. The snack bar was very good, but I wish the hours were longer. The bread everywhere was wonderful. The pools were small, but there was always more than enough chairs to go around. Same for the beach, no fighting over chairs like at some other all inclusives I've been to. It's nice that the hotel is on the hip strip, but if you go out be prepared to be hounded right away and for the entire time. They have nightly buses to and from Margaritaville and Pier One if that's your thing. Looking forward to going back.
Good service overall...
I talk to the Apple Vacations rep at the hotel every time I go to Royal Decameron, but I never get the information under my door the day before, for shuttle pick-up time to return to the airport. And, the shuttle never comes, so we have to get the concierge at the hotel to call a taxi to take us to the airport.
From the moment we arrived the customer service was OUTSTANDING!. We were very pleased with the facilities, the staff, the island on a whole. It was the best vacation I ever had and we are already planning our next trip to the same place. We were a little apprehensive given some horror stories we had heard, but were very pleased when we arrived!

Nice modern hotel
New hotel on the beach with gorgeous pool and friendly staff. The rooms all overlook the sea and are extremely comfortable and clean. There is a sister Hotel next door and these facilities can also be used.
Itâ€™s very close to the airport and port and there are shops and bars nearby.
Clean & Convenient
Older hotel with clean rooms, good food and service. Shops, Doctors Cove,and Margaritaville within walking distance. One bus stop from airport. Nice beach area with tree shade and sun near snack bar. A day trip away from Negril, Ocho Rios, Black River/YS Falls, and Port Royalâ€™s Fort Charles and Gloriaâ€™s Restaurant for a great view of Kingston. Jamaica is a beautiful place with beautiful people... One love - Yah maun.
5th vacation at Royal Decameron Montego Beach
As stated in the title, this was our 5th vacation to RDMB. Once again we enjoyed our entire stay...excellent variety of food (including Jamaican), very clean, outstanding staff, and beautiful scenery! The atmosphere boasts an array of warm Jamaican style life...homey, caring, genuine feeling. We will be returning at Christmas once again...we have found our home away from home family.
Good value resort
Was there in March 2017, small nice little resort, only 1 restaurant for buffet and one for a la carte. Older hotel standard looking rooms nothing fancy but if you are trying to just have a quick get away and enjoy the Jamaican sun you cant go wrong with this place, super close to the airport literally walking distance, no beach unless you walk over to the cornwall side. Overall freidnly staff and nice place to stay.
although an old hotel it is kept very clean. the service from the staff is first class. food is typical all inclusive but well cooked. pool area is good with access to the beach which is also clean with safe bathing in the sea. A good holiday choice if you want a quiet budget type holiday. Evening entertainment not too bad.
