    Just had a week at this wonderful resort and can honestly it’s the first time Iv ever been away and would be happy to go back there. Iv never been to such a friendly resort, absolutely everyone, staff and guests make a real effort to get to know you and chat. I’m guessing because the staff really make the effort, it makes all the guests do too. If you put the effort in and greet everyone with a smile and friendlyness, you get the same back. However there are a few staff who you can see really can’t be arsed, especially down in the snack bar. The rooms were lovely, we stayed in a garden bungalow, second row from the beach, so literally steps from the sand. showers could do with replacing, no hose to remove to clean yourself properly and the bath feels like it moved under you and could possibly give way at any second lol, but really good pressure and lovely clean rooms, lots of space and excellent air con. My one real gripe with the place is a lack of somewhere to really rely, listen to the ocean and have peace and quiet. The entertainment in this place is serious, an excellent team of lovely friendly guys, who really try to get everyone involved, but because of this there is entertainment 247. Boy do these guys work some hours. So there is something on constant, with noise constantly and no real place to escape it at the beach. So we savour the morning sun on the beach 8 till 10, when the mayhem then starts!

    Beware of 12 yr. old "Adults! "

    On our third visit to Royal Cameron Club,Runaway Bay, we took our two grandchildren, ages 17 & 12. After arriving, the front staff informed us that the 12 yr. girl was considered an adult & we owed them $400.00 more for her! We contacted "Cheaptickets.com", & they indicated they would contact DeCameron to assist us. Long story short, we sat in the check in area for over 3 hours while the front desk staff helped other new customers. We were hot, tired, hungry and angry, before it was over. We met the manager, but all we got from him was a smile. We were not loud, or making any kind of scene. Finally, as the front desk completely ignored our family most of the afternoon, as well as the phone constantly ringing, we reluctently doled out $400.00 more for our 12 yr. old grand daughter for her 3 day "adult" stay. The food was good, with the various local fruits, desserts, & "goat stew"; the restaurant/ bar wait staff, especially Kermit, was excellent . There were plenty of daily water games etc. for the youngsters. as well as evening entertainment . Since we felt the 17 yr. old would be taking one of his last family trips with us, we filled our Jamaican visit with local sights. We visited the caves & local gardens & the Catholic Church in Ocho Rios. "Rocky" took us to the "glistening waters", as well as a most interesting historical home which turned out to be much older than Rose Hall. Rocky was very informative about the local Jamaican life and helped us "make lemonade" out of a truly lousy beginning day! A month later, after much consternation & help, Cheap tickets kindly refunded the $400.00!

    Where do I begin... We had an exceptional week. This quaint cultural resort boasts fantastic food, entertainment and staff. Big up Entertainment!! Britney, Bryan, Flame, Richard, DJ, MandM and aquafit instructor Davian (my arms are still sore). The accommodations are well kept, property is beautiful and renovations are happening as we speak. Beach clean up daily, free water sports, dozens of lifeguards and security #safety. If you want a place quieter than the bigger "tourist trap" resorts, this resort is perfect. Quiet pool, cozy beach cottages and private spaces to take in the natural beauty. Attentive management. Not cool is the charges for WIFI... should be included. Will definitely be back.

    Homely and Comforting

    Just spent a fantastic week here as we were in need of a little respite from the joys of working too hard, cottages were quaint although a little dated, renovations going on all over the resort at present and hopefully this will bring the resort up to date, gardens well maintained and tropical. Food well presented and didnt find the need to use the speciality resturants as the buffet had a we needed and more, drinks plentiful and top brands used. Housekeeping staff fantastic as were the entertainment team special mention to Bryan who was fantastic and the main reason we will return next year. Beaches cleaned daily, lots to do on resort but prices for tours were horrific and taxis are pure extortion!! Just to add it would be good if the internet was included in the price,as roaming charges can be a bit costly abroad. Overall, an older style property which has charm,beaches a dream to be on,food to be savoured,great staff who aim to please,whats not to like, highly reccommended.
