Best of both worlds at Montego Bay all inclusive on beach, Hip Strip

Enjoy the best of both worlds at the Royal Decameron Montego Bay all inclusive resort -- a breathtaking beachfront location only steps from the city's bustling tourism center. The beach and pool area attract water sports enthusiasts and those craving quiet time in a cozy lounge chair. Guests explore the shops, craft vendors and live reggae on the vibrant "Hip Strip." The resort has three bars and evening entertainment, including live shows and a disco. Nightly theme buffets and an a la carte restaurant create memorable dining experiences.

Highlights
  • Tropical location on white sand beach
  • "Hip Strip" location within walking distance to shops, restaurants, clubs
  • Water sports
  • Two restaurants with buffet, a la carte dining
  • Live entertainment

 

Rooms

The 142 guest rooms at the Royal Decameron Montego Bay All resort occupy a four story structure just steps from the beach. All of the rooms have ocean views and most have balconies or terraces. Rooms are bright and spacious with a tropical motif, containing a king or two double beds. All include bathrooms, air conditioning, ceiling fan and TV.

 

Features

The beach in front of the Royal Decameron Montego Bay All resort is a magnet for water sports enthusiasts and those wishing to relax in a lounge chair. Non-motorized water sports are available, including snorkeling, windsurfing, kayaking, pedal boats and Hobie Cats. The resort's main pool offers a dramatic view of the ocean as well as a lively swim-up bar serving fresh tropical concoctions.

 

The location near Montego Bay "Hip Strip" means endless opportunities for shopping and jammin' to live reggae. Shop for jewelry, crafts or that perfect Bob Marley t-shirt.  After dark, live reggae blares from the Brewery, which serves a signature "Firewater" cocktail.

 

The Royal Decameron Montego Bay resort's two restaurants serve a variety of tempting dishes in casual and romantic settings.

Great Stay

We loved our stay here. The people were amazing and because of that we wont stay any other place. We are going back again in a few months and will again stay here. Free Wifi would be great- or even stronger Wifi, but that was not a huge issue. Some updates could be made but again- this did not effect our stay at all. We had a blast!

family getaway from the cold!!

Ocean view is the best room to get. Rooms are average but walking right out of your room to the water made it amazing. This is not a high rise nor is it fancy which we found to be such a plus! Rooms had a musty smell & found after she came & sprayed the sheers that covered the french doors the smell was gone.It is not a reach to understand as you are just feet from the water. Drinks are amazing! We love our drinks on vaca and were hoping they weren't skimpy on the alcohol and they def were not!! It was hot & beautiful. Looks like a picture at all times. We went shopping on the strip & spent our money there not in the gift shop. Locals are poor & government is rich. I agree w/every review I read. The pros n cons all true. They are not in a hurry so the slow reviews are true but after a few days we found ourselves relaxing and saying yah mon. No night life at this resort. They try but nothing to brag about. The red & white glass bottom boat was awesome! The captain of Miss Poly was entertaining and very nice. Zip lining was awesome! Flew a straight flight from Chicago and ride from airport is 5 min to hotel. Those two reasons alone made this so worth it. No layover No hour bus ride to hotel. Snorkeling right there on the beach we also loved. Adult kids 19 & 22 wanted more night life - lol to them I didn't have to worry about them as not much was going on at night. We would go back and stay there again!

Jamaica Vacation

I enjoyed staying here. It was relaxing. The food was great!!! I loved how we had a beach view and how there were many activities on the premises. I went snokling and wind sailing. There were also nightly performances. The water is beautiful, so clear and fishes are visible!

Great beach & awesome ocean view!

For the price, this place cannot be beat. We had a nice room on the 4th floor with a spectacular ocean view. The room was large, very clean, but simple without a lot of furnishings. We loved the large balcony and enjoying the incredible view. As we were only staying 2 nights, the short 10-15 minute cab ride from the airport was great. We arrived around 1:30pm, and though our room was not ready until the 3pm check-in time we were able to enjoy lunch, the bar, and the beach while we waited. Breakfasts and lunch buffets were good, the dinners much like the lunches. Though the food is not high end, we ate well. I am a fruit and coffee lover, and both of those were delectable. Lacked hot water showering early the first evening, but showered early (6:30am) or mid afternoon (3:00pm) the remaining time there and had no problems. The staff was pleasant and accommodating throughout our stay. Would definitely return to stay here.

Short Vacation

In the Jamaican context, this hotel is very good. The beach and docks are incredible, nice fun at night. Very close to touristic attractions. Food is very good with tastes arranged to fit different cultures. A lot of foreigners specially from Canada.

Will not return

Sorry to say but I am a Jamaican resident and firstly the Front office staff was very inefficient. I waited almost an hour to check in. The rain was pouring and I had to walk to my room which was on the far end of the hotel without an umbrella. The staff attired needs much to be desired. Very ugly white shirts and burnt out red colour slacks. The food was the only saving grace as I must commend the chef and pastry chef, fresh and light pastries and a variety of foods that I don't see in other hotels.Sorry but I would not return here and would not recommend.

That Jamaican feel!

From the moment we walked into the lobby-we had this great Jamaican "vibe"! Very nice, clean and fun resort with a fantastic location. The food was good! The drinks were fun! Entertainment was a great time at the pool bar too! A constant tune of music was flowing throughout. At night-such pretty lighting across the grounds and along the water! Pleasant and courteous staff! All the managers came around checking on us as well! Plenty of lounge chairs even for a smaller resort. Simple & relaxing. Will definitely go back!
