Looking for an out-of-the way beach destination that’s not too far from a bigger town with things to do, but quiet and affordable?
The Royal Decameron features 143 cottages plus other accommodations perfect for families or couples looking for a beach experience away from a mega resort but still featuring amenities and an all-inclusive deal.
Located in Runaway Bay
The Royal Decameron is situated about 30 minutes outside the busy tourist towns of Ocho Rios and Jamaica, but the Royal Decameron itself is a quiet option that’s low-key and all inclusive. It’s located just about an hour from Montego Bay International Airport and offers a picturesque island setting populated by friendly people.
In all, there are 203 guestrooms at the Royal Decameron with three types of accommodations available: suites, court yard rooms, and cottage-style rooms with each cottage a single room equipped with a large closet and bathroom.
While the rooms are small, they feature tall, palapa-style ceilings giving rooms an open, airy feeling. Rooms are furnished to accommodate up to three adults or two adults and two children and feature either a king or queen bed with extra single beds available.
The cottage-style rooms are nestled in a peaceful tropical beach environment where guests can experiment with a variety of water sports. If you don’t feel like swimming in the Caribbean, the hotel also has 2 swimming pools. One is exclusively and adult pool and the other offers facilities for kids.
Sunbathers can also take advantage of the long dock designated expressly for that purpose.
The Royal Decameron also has a variety of restaurants offering different types of cuisine ranging from typical Jamaican flavors to Asian fare. However, the food is nothing fancy.
The all-inclusive package does cover breakfast, lunch, and dinner buffets as well as afternoon and evening snacks. Domestic and imported drinks are also covered as well as nightly entertainment. For a full list of what exactly is included in the all-inclusive price, be sure to visit their website.
