Was such a good first holiday

I went here just before Christmas with my girlfriend 2 years ago and it was just so so good. The animation team really did make the holiday, and the all inclusive food and drink was great. I remember you had to get up early to get a sunbed but that literally happens everywhere. We didn't go on any excursions so cant really comment on that but i'm sure they would have been good! Definitely visit this hotel you wont regret it!More

James C,

First holiday together alone

Don't be fooled by the first impressions of the hotel. Staff amazing, poolside staff fantastic and a credit. Hotel clean and cleaned rooms and fresh towels daily. Downside food was fine but some days a bit more of the same but never was there a day you couldn't eat, downside although didn't drink much, wine with the meal ran out often and was never available at the bar. (Not everyone drinks Spirits) Thought there would be poolside snacks chips sandwiches and ice cream in the whole week only managed to have ice cream once... I would and will go back overall lovely place and great people and met lovely friends. More

Mixed feelings

We've just returned from a very relaxing week at Royal Decameron with very mixed feelings about the hotel. Food, service and cleanliness could not be faulted and previous reviews about not being able to get a sunbed were completely unfounded as there were more than enough available around the pool areas throughout the day. Sunbeds on the beach however were a bit sparse as there were a few broken ones. Our biggest disappointment was the amount of French/Belgian guests at the hotel who left us English guests feeling somewhat intimidated and with the majority of the evening entertainment aimed at them this didn't help matters either. Animation team however were great, always cheerful and accommodating and always managed to make me smile so a big thumbs up to them. Wifi wasn't the best as took a while to connect but in some ways was a blessing as it meant we actually spent time relaxing, talking to each other and enjoying the holiday without the usual interruptions from social media. Tip to management would be to rethink the nightly entertainment as this was a big let down for us and might be the reason why we were a group of only about 16 English guests in total at the hotel. We went on a catamaran day trip called Sun, Bay & Chill that was somewhat disappointing and from talking to others the island tours weren't much better either, better to pay €10 for a taxi to Bahia beach which is beautiful with pure white sand and turquoise water. All in all we had a totally chilled out week at Royal Decameron and our rep Russ was great and very approachable. We're sorry to say that we wouldn't consider booking here again in the future due to the language issues that we experienced. It definitely felt like them and us and its not a good feeling to experience on holiday. More

Pleasant surprise

We were here 2 years ago and wanted a relaxing away from it all break. It did not disappoint. They are in the throes of making minor improvements. It's quiet, predominately French guests with a smattering of English, German and Czech. Food good and plentiful at all times. Would recommend a la carte restaurant. Situated right on beach. Food and service great. Plenty of sun beds around both pools although we preferred the quiet pool which was very appealing. Wifi very hit and miss and expensive still although the same price as two years ago. 4 euros 30 mins and 7 euros for one hour. Only one the reception area. We booked our tours though a company I found on the internet called giggling geckos - highly recommend them as they are efficient, considerate and have customer and environment issues at heart. We went quad biking with them and have nothing but the highest praise for our guide and the tour in general. Excellent. He took us to Bahia on the beach after which was also lovely and made a welcome change from the hotel. Another beautiful location. From the Decameron we walked to another beach bar which was also lovely. Situated close to chimney which can be seen for the hotel. All in all I would say it was an improvement on first visit two years ago although entertainment is totally geared at the French. If you aren't bothered by that then would recommend as a perfect get away from it all hotel. Would certainly consider a third visit before it gets too commercialised. More
