The Royal Decameron Cornwall Beach is Montego Bay’s new kid on the block. It’s got sea views from every room, a trio of restaurants, and a slick bar straddling the beach and pool area.
The Royal Decameron Cornwall Beach has bagged a spot on one of Jamaica’s most popular stretches of sand. This fresh-from-the-packet hotel is within touching distance of the Caribbean Sea, and only a 10-minute cab ride from Montego Bay’s colour-splashed city centre.
This place is linked to the Royal Decameron Montego Beach, and shares a couple of à la carte restaurants, a spa and a gym with its seaside neighbour.

We had a very good time on the resort. Pros: We paid extra to have an ocean view room in the main building. View was fabulous. Food was delicious. Rooms were very clean Pools were refreshing, clean with entertainment by staff. Lifeguards were knowledgeable and were happy to chat about their country, about the fruit trees on the property etc. Beach was beautiful. Great for swimming and snorkelling. Sand is HOT! Had to wear flip flops to walk on sand. Cons: No fridge in room, which we knew going in but the bartenders, at least in the lobby, aren't overly happy to keep filling up our drinking containers with water and ice. I don't blame them. It would be nice to have a self serve spot to get it yourself. Evening entertainment staff was overly pushy and rude. I felt embarrassed for some of the people they dragged on stage only to humiliate them. Going off property to shop was a little crazy, we were pulled into an ally only to have every kind of street drug available for us to buy. You name it they sold it. It was hard to get away from them. Going into any souvenir shop was the same very aggressive sellers. We enjoyed ourselves and were happy to have Jamaica checked off our bucket list. My husband and I travel to an island at least once a year. I don't know if we will come back to this island anytime soon and if we do we will probably try Negril. This is a really nice resort, I gave it 4* because the only con about the resort is the evening entertainment. It is not necessarily in the best part of the country. More
Not much good
Our room was at the very end of the property by the public beach and public parking. We had the Ocean front side. Our view was good, but the noise totally ruined the trip. The locals would swim as early as 6 am, and would yell and talk loud. At night the locals would pull their car up with the stereo blasting for the night until 3-4 am. We tried to switch rooms but were told we couldn't. The buffet was awful!! The staff for the most part was really good!! The beach and pool was average. You have to PAY for wifi, Pay to use business center, and pay for the safe in your room. Will not go back to this hotel again.More
Royal Decameron Montego Beach - Air Transat vacation - Dec 30-Jan 7, 2017
We are 2 adults in late 40s, visiting the resort with a group of friends, all inclusive package. Overall: This is not a 5 star luxurious hotel, however, we loved it! The location is fantastic, food delicious, grounds beautiful and clean, snorkeling right off the beach. Would (and hopefully will) return! The hotel is small, and it gives the opportunity to meet people. The staff is really nice and working hard to make the guests feel great and welcomed. Arrival: Trip Montreal-MoBay with Air Transat was uneventful, on time. Once in Jamaica, we were processed quite quickly at the airport, then it took us 5-7 min trip on the new bus to get to the hotel. In the hotel we were quickly given the room, in time to grab a supper. Room: Nice, spacious, basic, with fantastic view of the sea. Best view and proximity to the sea we experienced so far. Beds comfy, ac stopped working for a while, but front desk addressed our request to repair immediately. (we came back after supper to find ac working) Grounds: The hotel is small (aprox 140 rooms) and opens towards the sea. Very clean, you can see the cleaning crews working at all times. Beautiful palm trees around the resort. There are 2 swimming pools â cannot comment, never spent time there. Beach â definitely the strongest selling point for us. Water crystal clear, snorkeling right off the beach, weâve seen so much beautiful marine life, lobsters, French angelfishes, barracudas, flounders, sting raysâ¦.. You can see the planes landing while on the beach, noise is not an issue though. (you can hardly hear it during the day, there is always music, waves, breezeâ¦) There are 4 beaches available, 2 sand beaches â 1 being on the side of new Decameron Cornwall resort; 2 beaches accessible via piers, where the water is deeper (2-3 m). Buffets/Restaurants; There are 2 restaurants, main buffet - Passa and Souk, a la carte rest. We loved both. The food is fresh, lots of local choices, fish, chicken, beef, soups (always 2 choices) vegetables, and tasty desserts. For breakfast we had omelets, made by Mr. Marley (donât remember first name) â best we had during our travels in Caribbeanâs Trips: We only took 2 trips: snorkeling trip with Capt Mrs Polly â highly recommended, we paid 15/pp, and Capt took us to the beautiful reef not far from the hotel. 2nd trip was to Glistening Lagoon, worth seeing, apparently one of 3 in the world. I took my gopro to film, but it did not work. The crew is taking picks tho. We did a short trip to Montego bay â on foot. Generally you feel safe, there is a police and security presence visible. People want to sell you all kinds of things, but simple âno, thank youâ works. Weather: Beautiful. 30C and sunny. Entertainment: This is the only area where the hotel is missing a point in my review. Some shows very good, some so-so. Beach party is a great example of missed opportunity â started fantastically, good bands, dancing, singing, limbo dance to include guestsâ¦ But at some point the guest were left to themselves, while entertainment team was concentrating just on each other. At this point I would like to mention 2 staff members that really stand out: Angelica â our buffet waitress, and Marshal, beach bar trainee. Super nice people, we loved talking to them, and learning about Jamaica. Return: Here is another big plus for the hotelâs proximity to the airport. Our flight was late 5h, so instead of waiting at the airport, we spent the time at the resortâ¦:o)More

Nice visit, room for improvement
A good stay overall, there was always a wide variety of food. Amazing view from the rooms and the hotel is well kept. There is always someone cleaning. Below are some issues we had during our stay: 1. After checking in and going up to our room, we noticed that the television was not working. We had to call maintenance to have the tv replaced. They then couldn't find the remote for the tv so we had to wait until the following day. This wasn't a big deal for me as i hardly stayed in the room. 2. After our second day, the toilet was leaking. One good thing was that maintenance came within 15 minutes of me calling the front desk and it was fixed within an hour. 3. The ladies at the towel rental area are not very pleasant (at least to locals). Bottom line: I would return despite the few hiccups. Recommendation for management: Have the rooms checked before they are assigned to guests. More
This is the original they have just opened a new one right next door - if you are at this one you can't go to the new one they have guards . They share some common beach area . The rooms are old and in need of a refurb and it is a Club Med type all inclusive drinks meals and activities. More
