We ALWAYS stay at Royal Decameron and we are ALWAYS very pleased with our choice. We will be back again next year. The staff is AMAZING! Special mention to Fitzroy (our favorite bartender), Feleisha (our favorite server), Terrance who does a great job in water sports, and Kirk who makes great omelettes and starts every morning with a smile. The rooms were clean, the food and drinks were great, and the people are FABULOUS! This is not a super-fancy resort, but it meets our needs every time. We love this place. We will be back next year.

Room Tip: Try the paddle boarding, kayaking, and sailing. All are included with the resort price.

My husband and I have been going to Jamaica for 26 years, and staying at the Royal Decameron Montego Beach Hotel the entire time. We have taken tours through other hotels, but nothing compares to the price, being less than 5 minutes from the airport, and the Hotel Management and staff. The food is great, the beds are very comfortable, rooms are large and there are 4 beach areas to choose from. We have also made a lot of good friends that live there, and look forward to going every August for 2 weeks. It's our home away from home.

Room Tip: The older rooms at the far end of the resort are quieter than the rooms close to the entertainment and the pool bar.

First off this is a smaller resort and a little outdated but if you are going to Jamaica to experience the country then this small resort of wonderful people is perfect. Room was large and clean with an amazing few of the ocean. I went with my best friend and my Mother and Step-Father joined us halfway through and they enjoyed it as well.

Food is buffet and I enjoyed the variety, the Entertainment was great and my favourite place to hang out was at the pool bar...great times had there! Also relaxing in the lobby people watching and enjoying some quiet time.

Staff was kind and fun....Sup Fresh!

Would definitely go back!!...Made some great friends with other travelers from all over the world. This is a place where you leave the phone in the safe and just enjoy...Not a lot of beach so if that's what you like you may want to stay at Cornwall but if you enjoy people and fun stay at RDMB....then again I guess it depends on the guests as well....

Gotta lively up that hotel club though for when I want to get my dance on ;)

Large group of us planning another trip and can not wait. Only thing is I would do more excursions..

Renee

Room Tip: Rooms facing the ocean :) so beautiful!

1. The hotel is very close to the airport so very convenient.
2. Staff incredibly nice and friendly
3. Rooms - very sparse, the beds are hard,
A/C intermittently worked, bathrooms are very poor! The shower had mild tub/shower very small.
4. Food- not good! Only 2 places to eat
5. Drinks -fantastic (if you want to be drunk all the time they pour heavy)
6. The beach - non existent - there is a wall type ledge with sand then below is the ocean. There is about 40ft of sandy type beach but during high tide was gone.
There is a newer hotel next door with better beach and more updated accommodations however if you stay in the old side you cannot towels, restaurant, or bar but you can use the beach which is much nicer. However if you book in Expedia it's made to look like it's the same facility. I would not stay in this location again.
Tourism is very important to Jamaica, but know the people that work in the industry ask for and expect large tips and hound you for them.
As far as Montego Bay, don't go into town alone because there are some that pray on tourist. However the people of Jamaica are so kind and loving overall. I learned a lot and would go back to Negril or Ocho Rios.

Despite it's few downsides, I like that this hotel has a cheap all-inclusive rate, is located right on the beach, and has an amazing buffet. The buffet had a wide selection of traditional Jamaican and other international food with fresh fruit and veggies, an ice cream station, and a bunch of other dessert options. Also, the hotel provides nightly entertainment like Name That Tune, which I enjoyed playing. That said, there were a handful of things that could've made our stay better. The hot tub and pools (except one small pool) closed at 5pm, which is an absolutely bizarre policy. Also bizarre: they do not provide free wifi and charge a ridiculous rate of $5 per hour. And when I asked for towel replacements one evening, the front desk said the towel station closed at 5pm and ALL the towels were in the laundry so I couldn't get any. Really. Other than that, it was a fine stay, but I probably won't be coming back. My recommendation: go to SeaGarden Beach Resort instead. I stayed there later in the trip and they blew Royal Decameron out of the water.

Dear Hannah O,

Thank you for choosing the Royal Decameron Montego Beach resort for your latest vacation. Your kind comments about the location of our hotel, amazing buffet food and nightly entertainment means a lot to us. Our pools and towel hut are opened daily between the hours of 9am and 5pm. Being that wifi service is not a part of the all-inclusive package our hotel offers, it comes at an additional cost during your stay. We apologize for any inconveniences you may have encountered and we look forward to your next visit for an even better vacation experience.

Cordially,
Management
