Editor’s Review of Royal Decameron Club Caribbean

Andrea Guthmann Editor’s Rating 3/5 "Let's get the party started!" is the motto at Royal Decameron Club Caribbean. Other than the name, there's nothing regal about the accommodations or atmosphere at this fun-loving hotel. This is a budget-friendly, all-inclusive property in Runaway Bay, just over an hour east of Montego Bay's Donald Sangster International Airport.

Best known for the unique octagonal cottages that make up the majority of its guestrooms, The Royal Decameron Club Caribbean is also known for its private beach and water sports activities. There are two pools and an onsite dive shop where you can get certified to dive, or schedule snorkeling or glass-bottom boat tours at an additional charge.

The resort is located within walking
... more distance of its sister property, Royal Decameron Fun Caribbean, and there's a free shuttle between the two. Guests of one property are free to use the pool, beach and facilities of the other.

Since alcohol is included in your stay and there are five bars, you'll find it's always 5 o'clock somewhere, sometimes everywhere, at this resort. The most popular drinking hole is the beloved Jetty Bar, which extends out into the ocean on a wooden dock. Here you can drink in an amazing view of the ocean while lounging on one of the delightful wooden swings that encircle the bar.

All the action is by the main pool, where you'll find the hotel entertainment staff working tirelessly to keep the spring break atmosphere alive. They work hard to get guests to participate in dance classes, bingo, game shows and other vacation activities on the main stage. If wild and crazy poolside entertainment isn't your thing, there's an adults-only pool where you can get some peace and quiet.

Plenty of serenity can also be found throughout the lush flower gardens. You'll find plenty of hammocks, benches and other places to rest while simply taking in the scenery in this tropical paradise.

Royal Decameron Club Caribbean is best known for its unique octagonal cottages with either a garden or ocean view. There are 33 of these charming, oceanfront cottages perched over a beautiful section of the Runaway Bay coastline. Keep in mind the cottages are built on a small concrete ledge that drops a few feet, which could pose a problem for smaller children. All cottages contain one king-size bed and a day bed. Another single bed can be brought in free of charge. Cribs are also complimentary, but they do not provide bed rails. The maximum number allowed in these cottages is two adults and two children.

The cottages are simply decorated in bright colors with Caribbean art. These rooms are not luxurious, nor are they the ... more most modern, but they are clean and make for a delightful home base on vacation. The bathrooms are simple, but tasteful, with some containing baths, and some only with tiled showers. If a bath is important, you'll need to request that when booking.

There are also 114 garden cottages with the same layout of one king bed and a day bed. All rooms come with air conditioning, cable TV, a hair dryer, iron and ironing board and a telephone.

You can request a refrigerator in your room for $5 per night. A safe deposit box will cost you an additional $2 each day.

The oceanview suites in the two-story building are large enough to sleep five people and come with a complimentary refrigerator. These 20 suites contain a living room with a pull out couch and a bedroom with a king-size bed, separated by the adjoining bathroom. An additional single bed can be added to sleep five people. Both rooms have TV's, making it a good way for everyone in the family to have a little more space to relax. If you have small children, make sure to request the garden level rooms instead of upstairs, as the stairs can be both cumbersome and dangerous.

Families larger than five can reserve two adjoining garden cottages that connect through a covered walkway. For those who need them, there are wheelchair accessible rooms.

The party never seems to end at this resort, so when booking your room, request not to be anywhere near the main stage by the pool. It gets extremely loud, and the fun keeps going late into the night.

We came here based on the reviews we saw on this website and others. Our expectations and standards were sky high. We were sorely disappointed. The first night we arrived, our daughter's bed wasn't made. Not a HUMONGOUS deal, ... more
Decameron Salinitas is a great surprise in a country where beach/family resorts do not abound. It is located about one-and-half hours from El Salvador airport. It has a 1km beach of almost-white sand. The beach is great for ... more
