Are you sitting down? If not, take a load off before reading about this week’s deal or you might just topple over in shock. We’ve discussed before how Ocho Rios is actually Jamaica’s best all-inclusive bargain destination, but we didn’t expect to find that one of it’s better rated resorts could be offering rooms for only US$99 per night for two people, with all meals and drinks included, in December.
This deal isn’t valid for Christmas week, of course, but it is available for the week before Christmas so the trick is to get a jump on everyone else by just 7 days or so, and you can enjoy the tropical warmth on the sandy beach at the Royal Decameron Club Caribbean All Inclusive for under a hundred bucks a night.
A Courtyard room at the Royal Decameron Club Caribbean All Inclusive for only US$99 per night for two people, with all meals and drinks included, subject to availability for stays in December.
This rate is only available through Expedia, our booking partner, and it includes free cancellation, which is something you wouldn’t expect at this price. For only $10 more you can upgrade to a Garden View Cottage instead of a Courtyard room, and there is no minimum stay required to get this rate, so you can get it for just a long weekend if you prefer.
3-star beach accommodation with very good reviews
The Royal Decameron Club Caribbean All Inclusive is right on the beach, and it also has a large swimming pool and many water sports options that are all included in the price. This is a deal that sounds too good to be true, and frankly it would be natural to expect to see a parade of negative guest reviews for the place, but the opposite is true.
This resort averages 4 out of 5 stars on TripAdvisor reviews as well as on the Expedia verified reviews, which are only from people who’ve definitely stayed there, so you can book knowing that the majority of people are quite satisfied. As we’ve discussed before, for two people enjoying 3 meals and a few drinks per day, the absolute least you’d expect to spend at any beach resort around the world is $100, and that’s if you are careful. Here you can stuff your face at every meal and have afternoon cocktails in addition to late night cocktails, so it’s worth closer to $200 per day for two people.
Rooms better than you imagine at this price
If you’ve been to Miami Beach then you know the sort of hotel room you get there for $99 per night in December, and that doesn’t include any food or drinks. You’d be staying a block or two off the beach, in a dark room that hasn’t been renovated in many decades.
So you might assume that at $99 per night (even without food) that the room at the Royal Decameron Club Caribbean All Inclusive would be awful, but they aren’t. The come with air conditioning and a flatscreen TV with premium channels. Obviously you won’t confuse these rooms for a Four Seasons, but they are comfortable and clean, according to reviewers.
