Always a blast!

Despite arriving into some less than stellar weather which continued throughout the majority of our stay, upon booking with cheap Carribean the process was seamless. No bumps and wonderful organization. We arrived at our hotel and were complimentary upgraded from a standard room to a butler suit. Luckily for me-cheap Caribbean requires you only have 4 people in a room. Therefore I had to book two rooms. The Jewel was more than accommodating to allow our 3 children and ourselves to stay in the same room! This came with unlimited mini bar use and a cell phone for 25 hour accesss to our personal butler. There are tons of things to do at the resort, snorkeling, off shore and open water, sailing, water bikes, paddle boarding, khiaking, and a beautiful beach with no rocks. The staff is constantly cleaning and keeping the resort beautiful. As always some Staff is great other staff is a little on the rude side, but that just comes with training. Something I will say is the rooms. All of them smell musty. And we had trouble with the toilet. This is a cultural thing. The toilet was never really broken, but needs time to regenerate after flushing. No big deal. We made do. I saw that there is a plan in place to expand the jewel which I have mixed feelings about because I have been multiple times and I like the smaller resort feeling. Looks like they will be going two story’s up with rooms to double capacity and building a grand entrance and lobby with an additional pool. Honestly at this time there is no need....plenty of pool and beach space and plenty of beach chairs. Food leaves something to be desired but we are very picky eaters and ate most often at the jerk hut! Love that you can eat anytime of the day and breakfast is fantastic!!!!!! My opinion, this is a must go!!! Plus....the water park is amazing!!!!

Great resort for the price

Overall the resort was wonderful! The people were friendly, the excursions were easy to book. We had a vowel renewal while there and the staff went above and beyond what we expected! The rooms could be a little bigger for people traveling with kids (we were in a room with a plunge pool) wich was great for the kids but with the upgrade we figured our room would have been a bit bigger, or if they did 2 queens instead of a king and 2 singles. It just felt very crowded, luckily we didn’t spend much time in our room. Our kiddos loved being able to go up to the bar and get virgin daiquiris. (I think they may miss that more than anything) the beach was wonderful, the pools were great not crowded at all, we didn’t spend much time in the water park but it looked like fun for little ones, mine just perferd the beach and deeper pools. I would recommend this resort to anyone looking to go to Jamaica with or without kiddos. We will be back in the future!

What a Deal!

Where to start? First off the cost was half as much as going to Hawaii and was all inclusive. We were sceptical on all inclusive as had bad experience in Mexico once but WOW, food and drinks any time, never a wait and never pressured to tip, with real restaurants. This place is exceptional. Great for youth, teens and parents. Room was a little small but we didn’t care didn’t spend time in room. Also no door on bathroom which was a little non American but was still okay. Bed very comfortable. Staff went out of there way to help and be friendly. Shout out to Peter at the water park and Corey (both lifeguards) on the beach. Informative and took time to listen and talk with us. Everyone there was friendly and seemed genuinely concerned about us. Even when my husband left the resort they politely asked him for his room number to monitor his return. Activities were great, snorkeling right there (nothing huge) short sailboat rides, volleyball among other things. Bottom line is we had a blast and will return for sure. Jewell is a jewell:) amazing!

Big disappointment

The beach was beautiful, the pool was nice but the swim up bar was attached to the children's pool area! Liquor was well brands only. Bartender blasted music so loud your ears hurt. We asked him to lower the music and he did, for about 15 minutes. The food was awful!! All restaurants were outside except for one. All the food was mostly room temperature, it didn't matter if it was supposed to be cold or hot! Flys were all over while you were trying to eat! The only thing we thought was tasty was jerk chicken. Resort was old and could use a renovation. Would not return.

What's to Love

We love the three gorgeous pools at Jewel Runaway Bay Resort in Jamaica, especially the resort's brand-new, Jewel Lagoon Water Park. This 9,000 sq ft water park features tons of slides, family raft ride & a lazy river!
 

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.
