BE CAREFUL WITH THIS PLACE! BE CAREFUL WITH THIS PLACE! They stole more than 500 dollars USD THERE from our wallets in the room. They took advantage of the fact that we were having breakfast and on the last day they stole more than 500 USD from us THERE. They are a chain of thieves. They are a chain of thieves. They communicate with each other on the day you leave the room to steal all your money and then make you feel like you are to blame. They communicate with each other on the day you leave the room to steal all your money and then make you feel like you are to blame. This man is supposed to be security, but he is a jerk, he made us take all our things in the lobby as if we were the thieves. Additionally, he yelled at us and treated us very badly, he didn't want to help, and in the end, he didn't even want to since he didn't give us a solution since they left us without any money, we didn't have to pay for the taxi to go to the airport. Terrible experience. Read less

Customer service training is needed. During my travels to various countries, I have enjoy great customer service. At Decameron Montego Bay hotel, the service provided, was one of the poorest. Unfortunately, the attitude displayed by the staff often implies that our presence inconveniences them. Notably, both, the front desk and the gift shop experiences were particularly unsatisfactory. In the gift shop, for instance, the employee appeared bothered when asked to confirm the price of an item for the second time. In an attempt to avoid further disruption, I apologized for any inconvenience caused and decided not to make a purchase. We were a group of 5 women friends and all of us had the same perception.

Firstly we didn’t know the elevator wasn’t working until we arrived 🙄 we have to pull our luggage’s up the stairs, there “bell boy” was no help. the bathroom was atrocious the room should be set for 2 adults and 2 children we only received 2 towels and 2 rags, when I ask about the rag they told us they stop giving rags because guest take them . On to the food this is the first hotel I have seen food ran out of food 🤢 everything salt, my mother’s pressure went up right after the vacation. There deserts was not it, everything tasted similar. nothing to choose from if you don’t eat what they provide you are doomed if there is no seat in the buffet area u have to wait until other people finish eating and if there is no food we have to wait on lunch. Only two waitresses were very nice, Ramona and Tiana they made sure we got everything we wanted and that we were ok.On to the pool. The bar was ok. smh the towels were a disgrace, some were torn, discolored and there was a shortage of towels. We stood in the sun to be dried because they said we couldn’t carry our towels from the room to use and as we said before there wasn’t a lot of towels. We went to the sauna only to hear that it is not working in witch they didn’t state that on there site. My son was playing basketball and had an accident I was told to go to the nurse station up on arriving I was told I have to pay 45usd to see the nurse and if I need a pain rub I have to go and buy it and if need 2 pain killers I have to buy after I pay over 200 thousand jmd to stay in this so-called hotel, I wouldn’t recommend this place to not even a stray dog I would never go back even if it’for free .
