I don't know, you've gotta think that there are some really picky and cranky people out there if they did not like RDMB. I, like many others, have been watching all these reviews before our trip and those that loved it were right on. We had an absolute blast there. The staff were always ready to please you and make...

Originally booked a trip to Mexico - that was cancelled because of the flu outbreak, so we chose Jamaica. Well, both my husband and I agree that we are SO glad we went to Montego Bay instead - we loved it! The beach was sandy, not rocky (we didn't need to wear water shoes at all - although we did...

Ok so lets face it, some hotels/resorts are not it. They have dirty rooms, gross food, and bad customer service. RDMB is NOT one of those places. We are a couple in our early 20s, first time to Jamaica and first time to the RDMB and we loved it! This place is a great value for the price you pay....

Trip cancelled to Mexico, got the only option left to Jamaica. Was leary, but totally blown away once we arrived. The Royal Decameron is a hidden little gem in Montego Bay. I bet all inclusive travellers avoid it because of it's size, but that is a mistake. The food is fantastic, the shows are award winning and the people are...

Firstly, this was my first time staying at RDMB and I want to go back in November :) We are young females age 19-23 and stayed from April 17-23. We arrived at the airport around 10:30 am and got to the hotel by noon. I would recommend taking a taxi as the resort is very close to the Airport. We...

This hotel was really gorgeous, the hotel rooms were spacious and our room has a really beautiful sea view and was lovely to sit out on the balcony and watch the sun go down. The only problem we had with the room was the air conditioning was leaking and after complaining to reception it took them 2 days to come...

The reason I chose to stay at the RDMB was because I enjoyed my stay at the Royal Decameron in Bucerias, Mexico, immensely. My stay at the Royal Decameron, Montego Bay was from April 17 to 24th, 2009. Expect a long delay at Sangster International Airport, Montego Bay, if you come in around 9:30 to 10:00 a.m. in the morning....

We travel out of the country for a tropical vacation at least once a year. I'd say the RDMB was a deal for the money but lacking a little to make it outstanding. THE GOOD: A) Location was great for us close to the airport, on the hip strip (which is basically a street of souvenir shops and a Margaritaville)....
