Thank you to the staff at Royal Decameron Montego Beach they were amazing Especially "Kevin" from the day activities by the pool. Also the bartenders at the swim up bar " Alicia" She was amazing Pros: - Walking Distance from all attractions, good restaurants near by, the staff is great. - The specialty restaurant at night was pretty decent - The view from ocean front was amazing (Room 305) - THE AC was so cold! which was refreshing after a long day in the heat. - Late check out was only $25 per person until 3:00pm :) - Shuttle services to both Pier One & margaritaville for night life experience. - All the Free Water activities were definitely a perk Cons: - The Buffet was not good - lack options for food, ran out a lot of time. The quality wasn't good so we went outside the resort to eat everyday for breakfast and lunch . - The shower water shut off multiple times throughout our stay while we were bathing. - The power in the resort turned off one night for a couple mins which was weird. - $50 if you lose a room key, which i think it INSANE. - They didnt have maybe liquor options which sucked. Overall The hotel was older but the rooms were comfortable and clean, i would come back if they upgrades the food and liquor options. Read less

We had an amazing 6 day stay here. We travelled with our 2 yr old and even he enjoyed every moment here. The resort is located less than 10mins from the airport and is very close to the hip strip.

We had an amazing 6 day stay here. We travelled with our 2 yr old and even he enjoyed every moment here. The resort is located less than 10mins from the airport and is very close to the hip strip. We rode a taxi and we’re charged $15 for the three of us. Even though the resort is close to the airpot, it wasn’t noisy at all. We actually enjoyed watching the planes, flying across the Caribbean sea, coming into the island. The hotel is old but is clean and well maintained. Our room was garden view but we actually had both the ocean and garden views. The bed was comfortable, our AC was working well and TV has cable. The hot water is on & off. You take a hot shower and then the water shuts off but it comes back after a few minutes. The beach front is amazing. It was perfect for our little one. The waves were not strong because of the reef. The reef is so close that the fishes swims close to the shore and my toddler sees them up close. This resort is perfect for anyone who loves to snorkel. The sunset at the beach was also very beautiful. We laid at the beach lounges while watching the sun go down. The resort also have two adult pools. One is big enough to play pool volleyball. Beach towels were also offered but be ready to bring the towels from your room. We waited an hour at 9am one day for beach towels. The food is good as well. There is not a lot of choices for a picky little one at the buffet but we managed. Though he loves the grill since they serve fries, pizza and grilled cheese. I didn’t drink alcohol on this vacation so I cannot comment on the alcoholic drinks they offer, though my husband said it wasn’t watered down. The staff here is what really made this resort amazing. They were very friendly and accommodating. They really go beyond their roles. I really commend the entertainment team. They really made our stay here worthwhile. We always look forward to the night shows since it is different every night. The activities they offer are also great. They offer archery, basketball, different pool and beach sports, bingo, trivia games, etc. They also offer yoga classes and water aerobics. There is also a small gym in the resort. There are two travel agencies inside the resort where you can avail tours and activities to do around Jamaica. Travel tip: 1. Bring water bottle for hydration throughout the day. You can actually ask the bartenders to fill those up with an alcoholic drink. Though they give you 2 water bottles in each room everyday. 2. Bring mosquito repellant. They are notorious! After this trip, my husband (a mosquito magnet) had 20+ bites and my toddler had 5. And lucky me, I have none. 3. Water shoes. You don’t really use them along the shore but if you are going to snorkel or swim further, you will need them. Sea urchins might be present along the reef where you snorkel. There is a swimming area where there is no shore, and you just jump or use the ladder to go down into the water. The water is deep in that area. But right along where the ladder ends, there was a sea urchin. It was there for 3 days then it was gone. Read less
