Royal Decameron Montego Beach

Reviewed 15 May 2005

We arrived at the RDMB on May 6th and stayed through the 13th. When we arrived our room was not ready. Raymond took care of our bags while we changed and went into the crystal blue waters with drinks in hand. We waited about and hour or so for our room so we went to check it out. I could not believe how clean the rooms were and the beds were so comfortable. The view is awesome MON'. Both of the pools were clean and they are always wiping the bars down or moping something. I just couldnt get over how clean the whole resort is. The beach is a little small but reallly, Who cares? You are in Jamaica. The food was good also, they had a different selection of foods at the buffet everyday. We ate at the specialty restaurant called Souk and it was really really good. The entertainment was great also, they tried to keep everyone involved in activities etc. Shak, Shar and Showtime are really great people, make sure to meet them. The best bartender of all was Jerome, (We miss you MON) All in all the resort is a 4 star in my book. If you have any questions at all please feel free to email me and I can share pix also.

Hotel was clean- this is a must for me. They were always cleaning the grounds- just like being at Disney World! We did not eat at the reservation restaurant, only the buffet and we could always find something to eat. I love seafood so it was great for me- my husband however longed for a steak by the end of our stay! The breads, rolls and desserts were wonderful. Fresh fruits everyday at every meal. Also, I did not think the drinks were weak at all. The bartenders do a wonderful job. My favorite drink- "Sex on the Beach" The only irritation of the entire trip was they didn't clean our room till almost 5:00Pm everyday and we like to come back and take showers after a day in the sun, also our toilet did not work properly. The employees were all very friendly and tried to be helpful. It is a VERY casual resort - which we liked. You can wear your swimsuit the entire day- no problem- I just put a cover up on at meals. Some people didn't even put on a cover up, but I think it is just a little more respectful.
There are two beach areas and they also have a large trampoline (like the one at Marg Ville)at the center ocean area of the resort. We prefered to sit on the beach area past the pools, the water was calmer and there was a wonderful reef to snorkel over, bathrooms close and bar close. This are is somewhat shaded in the AM which my husband liked. I really got the hang of snorkeling, it was great. Every evening there was a beautiful sunset and the hotel faces the west so everyone was out snapping pictures, just beautiful!
The resort was very relaxing and there seemed to be a wide range of people at the resort, from people in thier teens to people in thier 70's and everyone seemed to be having a great time. Whith only 5 days to enjoy, we really only ventured out one afternoon (Rose Hall Great House and shopping at various places) and we rented a cab to go to these places, otherwise we were really content with the amount of things to do at the resort. I have to say we had been to Dunn"s River and Dolphin cove on a stop at Ocho- otherwise we would have done Dunn's. Note- The hotel does have internet cards you can purchase- 5.00 for 15 min.
This was the first AI resort we have stayed at and we were happy with the choice. All in all we would go again- it is a great medium priced AI resort - wonderful beach areas (enough for our needs) food and drink plentiful, clean, close to airport, a great value and we will reccommend it to others who are looking for a very casual, relaxing vacation.

We stayed at the Royal Decameron Montego bay from April 30th until may 7th and i have to say it was the best experience ever at an all inclusive resort. The food was amazing, the booze flowed freely, and the water in the ocean was clear and blue. We met some awesome people including the staff. The animators were incredible, they had soo much energy (Omar, Sher, Orlando A.K.A. Showtime, Shak, Kevin) they are also amazing dancers, check them out at glitter nightclub after the shows. The shows were pretty good, alot of dancing and they had contests some nights too. The pool bar is where i stayed for most of the trip, ask omar for his special banana drink...soo good. As far as service at the bar, it was pretty good specially if u tip them. One of the reviews says the bartenders are very unfriendly, dont believe them, im not sure which hotel they were at but thats not the case. They were all very friendly to everyone. Bring lots of money for tips, we budgeted 50$ USD for tips and we used it all. Also bring a coffee mug or a bigger container to hold your drinks in as the cups they give are pretty small, and they tend to put more alcohol in the bigger mugs. I would go back in a second if i could. We had an Awesome time!

I always check trip advisor before trying out a new hotel so I will know what to expect. I was very concerned about this hotel because the price was so good but decided to follow the advice of those who had gone before me and am so glad I did! This was a spectacular hotel! It definitely will not be a 2 star hotel long. Victor and the staff were friendly and attentive and the hotel was the perfect size. Big enough to have a lot to do but small enough that you got to meet everyone. I was planning to go to Cancun in August but have decided to go back to the Royal Decameron instead.

A group of 5 of us stayed at the RDMB and we had an amazing time. We got a really good deal for our trip,and after reading all the positive reviews we went with open minds. We arrived in beautiful Montego Bay...and we were at the hotel in about 5 minutes, this is important..after getting off the plane the last thing you want is to travel 2 hours by bus to get to your hotel. We were checked in pretty quickly (friendly and welcoming staff) we even got a welcome drink and we were pleased to see that we were able to get adjoining rooms. The rooms were very clean, with a tv, vanity mirror , washroom with a tub, iron & ironing board, and blowdryer. The Food was good... like any buffet though sometimes its the same thing with slight variations, but remember relax you are not cooking! Also take advantage of the Grill were you can get hamburgers/hotdogs and fries especially late at night. Also book early if you want to go to the a la carte restaurant it gets booked pretty quickly. Everyone must go to Dunn River Falls ..it's amazing!

There's also lots to do at the hotel as well snorkeling, going on the water trampoline, ping pong tables, paddle boats, they have volleyball games and other games by the pool. About going shopping outside of the resort the people don't harrass you as much as some people say...they are just trying to do their jobs just be polite but firm.The entertainment staff is amazing we will really miss ALL of them! Showtime! Omar! Shaq! Cher! Kevin! Thanks for the good times! They put on great shows every night and showed you how and where to party!! From Glitter to going to Margaritaville. The RDMB has only been opened for a few months and they have done an amazing job and we know that they will only get better! So honestly ...relax, no problem, it's all irie! (The Canadian Girls)
