Royal Decameron Club Caribbean
The Royal Decameron Club Caribbean's pulled up to a couple of half-moon coves on Jamaica's north coast.
Everything here revolves around sea views. The pool faces up to the waterfront, and there's a bar perched on a jetty that pokes out from the shoreline. Chalet-style rooms pepper the edge of the bay, too.

Perfect Mini Vacation
My stay at RDCC was a short one but we definitely had a great time! I travelled with my 5 year old son July 30 - August 2nd. The resort was perfect for us. Everything was close by and the staff were all friendly. No one passed by us without saying good morning or hello. My son loved that we had our own cottage. It wa a little dated but kept very clean. Our room had a garden view and wasn't too far from the beach or main buffet. (106) The AC kept the room very cool which was needed after spending all day at the beach. Our king size bed was very comfortable as well. The food was good. There was no jerk hut on the beach or fresh juice station like on some other resorts I've been to but they did have jerk chicken at the buffet. The buffet wasn't huge but there was always a good variety at all meals. There was always local Jamaican dishes at every meal which I loved. I have to say a special thank you to one of the waiter's Ricardo, such a nice guy. My son is a very picky eater and really wasn't eating. Ricardo took the time to talk with him and try to get him to eat more. He even took him to the buffet and got him some fruits which my son ate most of because he said his friend Ricardo got it for him. He always checked in to make sure my son was eating and even took a few minutes to play with him eventhough he was very busy. He's definitely an asset to the resort. The food at the snack bar is pretty good as well. We tried the pizza and patties there which were really good...my son ate that no problem. Another guest had a cheeseburger that looked really good too. Only thing is you're not allowed to take any food out of the restaurants. I wanted to take a patty for my son so he could have it at the beach later on but they did not allow that. It would be nice if they had a snack bar close to the beach where people could grab a patty, burger or fries to munch on while at the beach. We love spending most of the time at the beach and not having to sit in a restaurant for an hour or more for lunch. I spoke with other guests who agreed... especially guests with children. Something for management to think about. The bars are all great...our favourite was the jetty bar with the swings...nice vibe there. We did not have much interaction with the entertainment crew but they looked like a fun bunch. I also liked that there were life guards everywhere...pools and beach always had lifeguards present. Overall we had a great time and will definitely return for a longer period next time.More
My partner and I booked a 10 night holiday here and it was the best holiday we’ve ever had......you can do as much or as little as you please, there are always options whether for activities, eating and drinking, even down to where to lay and enjoy the Jamaican sunshine! All staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Thank you for a wonderful holiday More

Cheap, but still a waste of money
Let me preface this with the fact that all resorts have their pro's and con's. No place will give you everything you want...you're just hoping that there is a heavy lean towards the good versus the bad. Here is my overview: Con's: 1.Food - Overwhelmingly bland and non authentic or tasty. The two restaurants are complete garbage and a waste of time. The "snack" bar mid day is horrible and the menu is small and honestly gross. We tried most things on this. The buffet is average to above average at breakfast, mediocre at lunch and hit and miss at dinner. Ok omelettes and fruit. Every theme night is terrible except for the jamaican night...naturally, but thats only 1 night. There is a wide range of choices in the buffet, but again, most options are blah. Tastes are geared toward mass market and very very unseasoned and bland and cheap. They try very hard to make things look nice, but then you taste it and its so gross mass produced food with bad ingredients. 2. Service - Needs a complete operation overhaul. Lots of people not doing much and not doing it efficiently. People taking your plates before you're done. 15 minutes for drink service. No place to do things yourself since it takes so long and the staff chastises you when you try to pour your own water or get your own silverware. The service in the a la carte restaurants is terrible. Waiters are not happy, and you don't feel like its special at all. The food here is inedible and the menu's have only 4-5 options. 3. Property - Feels mediocre and dated in some parts. Facilities need upgrading and some are not operating. 4. Rooms - AC in our room wasn't great for a place with this much humidity and heat. Bed is definitely not comfortable. Water pressure was hit or miss the entire time and the water went almost completely out the final day we were there. 5. Entertainment - More of a pain than anything else. Had weird things playing and going on at weird times. You're trying to have dinner and there's a loud speaker game show going on in the background. The carribbean music was great at times and then all of a sudden someone would come on the speakers. No nightlife here at all. 6. Bars - Most drinks are poured in ugly plastic clear cups. The drinks weren't terrible though and the bartenders are fast and can make almost anything. The alcohol mostly tasted cheap and sugary. 7. Noise - The huts have thin walls and roofs so you hear everything and every bird chirp at night and rooster crow in the morning. That was a huge pain. 8. Location - Not close to anything and a drive from anywhere. Atleast $80 RT to Ocho Rios and atleast $140-150 RT to the resort from Mo Bay. Its going to cost you to go anywhere. Pro's: 1. The staff - They are mostly very very friendly and want you to have a great time. Will help in anyway that they can. People will cut down coconuts and give them to you to drink and the lifeguard staff was great. Jamaicans in general are a wonderful culture of people for the most part. When we had AC issues they "tried" to fix it. 2. Property - They're not great, but there are a ton of bars everywhere for you to imbibe from. Some better than others. The property has 4x little clamshell beaches which are all pretty good. Tons of beach chairs and the property is big to explore. Again, fairly dated, but things are interesting. The property is almost too big as its a pain to walk to places sometimes in the heat. The place looks great at night. The buffet area is beautiful and the lighting is very nice. Especially if you're able to get a beachfront table. They're not the nicest though with trying to procure one of these. 3. Price- You definitely get what you pay for. This place is cheap, but you better come expecting it to be cheap. I am writing this all so the next person doesnt come with preconceived expectations. I would definitely NEVER come back here, but thats because i have higher expectations if i'm going to a resort. I'm sure this place is great for certain people. Especially if you dont care about the quality of food, alcoholic drinks or your room. The beach was mostly beautiful and the sport options for paddle boarding, kayaking, etc were fun.More
