What's to Love

We love the three gorgeous pools at Jewel Runaway Bay Resort in Jamaica, especially the resort's brand-new, infinity-edge pool with its own swim-up bar. Watching a dive-in movie from your float is extra fun! Also be sure and check out the Red Ruby Ranch which offers laser tag and archery for guests 12yrs and older.

What We'd Change

This lively resort isn't for those looking for a quiet getaway, and all the activity can be overwhelming. If the pace gets too hectic, book a rejuvenating spa treatment and let the hustle and bustle fade away.

Why You Should Go

The Jewel has been completely remodeled and is now completely family-friendly. Plus, they still have complimentary greens fees and transportation to the world-class golf course next door.

Hotel Description

Jewel Runaway Bay Beach & Golf Resort Shines in Jamaica

When the pace of life has gotten too fast, toss your everyday concerns to the wayside and make tracks for an exciting beach vacation at Jewel Runaway Bay Beach & Golf Resort in Jamaica! With free airport transfers, three great pools, a luxurious spa and a beautiful beach, we're sure you will be living the island life in no time. Perched on Jamaica's beautiful northern coast, this recently renovated resort offers a gem of an all-inclusive deal ideal for all-ages. This sparkling getaway includes upscale accommodations, loads of water and beach activities, delicious meals at six unique restaurants, innovative and imaginative children club and teen's lounge, plus free greens fees at the PGA-quality golf course on-site.

The road to relaxation starts with sinking your toes in the warm, sugary sand before claiming a hammock strung between two waving palms. To really get in the spirit, sip on something cool while watching the inviting water bounce against the Caribbean clouds. Don't forget to try a "Gem of the Day" - it's the Jewel's daily signature cocktail. Worried about the kids? Don't be. Jewel has a brand new kids' and teens' lounge that offers plenty of great activities and programs. Knowing the kids are happy and well cared for, you'll want to rustle up a little activity yourself. So grab a complimentary kayak and high-five the waves just beyond the beach.

When things get too warm, cool off at the infinity pool, where the expert mixologists at the swim-up bar can whip up a refreshing "Jamaican Waterslide" to help re-energize your soul. Still too hot? Ask the pool concierge to bring you eucalyptus-infused misting spray and a skewer of fresh fruit.

If a snack won't cut it, enjoy Jamaican specialties at Coral Cafe's buffet. Or, for a little Far Eastern fare, Jade Samurai serves up delicious Japanese dishes prepared teppanyaki-style. The temperature may cool off after sunset, but that's no reason you can't heat things up with your honey over a romantic Italian dinner. Try Moonstone by Vincenzo for a la carte specialties from both northern and southern Italy.

After dinner, the fun continues late into the night with live entertainment, theme nights and a wonderful dive-in movie night. Who could imagine catching a flick at the pool with a bowl of Jamaican jerk popcorn could be so fun? After a fun-filled day, get some shut-eye to the sound of the waves echoing through your luxurious room. When life starts wearing you down, look toward Jewel Runaway Bay Beach & Golf Resort to replenish your spirits in the joys of island life!
