THE AREA

With sweeping views of Montego Bay, Royal Decameron Cornwall Beach is ideally located just four kilometres from Santander International Airport—a short ride for guests looking to get to the resort as quickly as possible. Housed on the main drag of MoBay, which has been appropriately dubbed the “Hip Strip”, the resort offers guests the opportunity to get out and experience life as a local. We suggest Margaritaville and Pier One.

THE ROOM

Basic rooms at Royal Decameron Cornwall Beach sleep four, but a daybed or cot can be brought in for larger groups. Think rainforest showers, clean lines, comfy beds—all the expected comforts of an all-inclusive resorts. For an additional cost a mini fridge can be purchased, stocked with water, soda and the Jamaican-brewed Red Strip beer.

THE FOOD

Dining al fresco at Royal Decameron Cornwall Beach is the best way to enjoy any meal during your stay at the resort. With multiple options available—ranging from an all-you-can-eat buffet, complete with classic and local dishes, to sit-down dining on the water—guests are sure to never go hungry during their stay at Cornwall Beach. We suggest trying the omelette bar in the morning, paired with a mimosa and fresh-made French toast. Or, if you are feeling more adventurous, try some local bammy.

THE VERDICT

A modern resort where basically every room offers an unobstructed ocean view, Royal Decameron Cornwall Beach is a great getaway for couples looking to experience Montego Bay in fashion, without breaking the bank.
