If you are one of the many people who have not yet had a chance to get away on a tropical holiday during the cold months, there is some really good news. As we’ve discussed before, the next two months are the best for great deals in the Caribbean, with shockingly low prices and zero chance of a hurricane. Better still, it’s sunny, warm, and beautiful there while it’s probably still chilly where you live.
Right now you can book a room for two people at the Royal Decameron Club Caribbean not far from Ocho Rios for only US$133 per night. Again, that’s for two people including all meals and drinks and even gratuities. If you can get a cheap flight, which shouldn’t be difficult, it might be cheaper to stay there than to just stay at home.
A Courtyard room at the Royal Decameron Club Caribbean near Ocho Rios in Jamaica for only US$133 per night for two people on an all inclusive basis. A Garden view Cottage is only US$150 per night, which is also an amazing deal.
This rate is available through Expedia and it includes free cancellation so you can book now and then arrange your flights without worrying that things might not work out. There is no minimum stay required to get this rate, so you can even go for a long weekend, though availability is limited.
Incredibly cheap and highly rated
For US$133 per night it’s obvious that this isn’t a 5-star part of the Four Seasons chain. It’s a simple 3-star resort on the beach, but it actually gets very good reviews. Considering that most resorts charge more than US$133 per night just to add the all-inclusive option to the room, it’s natural to be suspicious and expect a tired resort that has been neglected for years. The good news is that 85% of past guests would recommend it on Expedia, and that is a higher than average number.
Even the cheaper rooms have a garden or courtyard view, and the slightly more expensive cottages all have a garden view. It’s true that you don’t get an ocean view for this price, and you are free to spend double or triple this price if that’s important to you. Each room comes with a kingsize bed, flatscreen TV, and a terrace with chairs. There’s air conditioning and even a refrigerator in each room, so you get everything you get at the more expensive places for a lot less.
Also cheap to reach
Having a cheap all-inclusive room would be nice, as long as it doesn’t cost a fortune to get there. Many Caribbean islands take 2 or even 3 flights to reach, so a roundtrip will cost over US$500 from anywhere in the US or Canada. But this resort is only about 35 miles from Montego Bay Airport, which is one of the largest and busiest in the Caribbean.
You can get a cheap flight from almost anywhere in the United States, and if you are in a major city in the east you can probably get a cheap nonstop flight. So you might be able to fly in for only around US$250 per person without changing planes. When you are only spending US$150 per night or less for a hotel and all meals and drinks, it makes sense to think about even a 3-day weekend.
