Great resort for the whole family!

The Jewel Runaway Bay was fun for our whole family! We have boy/girl 13yo twins who really enjoyed this vacation. The resort was busy with events and entertainment, but we were also able to just relax when we wanted to. The ocean swimming was nice. Warm water and clear for snorkeling in the coned off swim area. Morning and later afternoon we found the calmest water. Staff was excellent. Food was good also. We would definitely go here again!

Family Vacation

This resort is rhe perfect size for families. Easy for littles one to walk around. Our only complaint was the cruise lines that came in. It over crowded the water park and made it hard for little ones to enjoy. Our last day there a cruise came in and a local school our 4 year old was pushed down and couldn't swim in the lazy river without someone swimming into her with a raft. It made for a dangerous situation. The kids club staff is amazing and our girls begged to go every day. The ocean is great with a reef that brought in so many fish for the kids to see. We really enjoyed our time and when we travel with kids again this will be our first choice. The staff is extremely friendly and go above and beyond to make you happy. The food is good. At times it was hard to find kid friendly food. I would highly recommend this resort if you are traveling with kids!! We felt safe the entire time.

Worth the money

The resort was very nice and well kept. Being honest, the rooms were a bit outdated. They could use some updated renovations. The view from our room was nice, we could see the pool. The down side of where our room was located it was loud at nighttime. So if you wanted to go to bed a bit earlier it was hard to rest. For a younger couple that wants to stay up really late, it would be fine. We brought our two daughters ages 15 and 12. They had an amazing time! They loved the waterpark, and the beach! The staff on the resort were very nice, friendly and helpful. They were always asking if we were okay and if we needed anything! They are very accommodating to us, even the kids. They definitely make you feel welcome. Overall I would give this resort four stars! And I would go back to visit. Lastly, we did an excursion, we went to the White River and saw the Blue Hole. We did tubing down the river, zip lining, and went on the buggies, (side by sides) this whole excursion was well worth the money!! We had a blast and would definitely recommend doing it!

Nice Family Resort

This resort is a nice family resort for the price. The resort is on the smaller side which we felt was a plus and everything is super easy to find and walk to. The resort is very clean and the pools and beaches are both clean and nice. The service is on the so so side. You can wait over 5 minutes sometimes for a beverage and the bartenders arent overly friendly. You can tip them extra money and it doesnt really seem to phase them which I found bizarre. Liquor choices are so so, no high end vodkas or tquillas which was a little disapointing but I guess you get what you pay for. Concierge and other hotel staff are friendly. The kids club is great. It is very clean and has organized events for the kids. Pur 2 year old was begging us to put her in there. The resort is very safe and never did we feel uncomfortable. The water park is very small and can get very busy due to them allowing local school children to have field trips there. The kids are very wild and makes it almost impossible to stay in there and enjoy yourself. 2 out of the 5 days we were there we experienced the local children on field trips there. We were there in mid April and the weather was perfect. Sunny and 85 every day. The mosquitos can be brutal at night and in the early morning so wear bug spray. The bugs are very stealthy. Although I didnt get bit my wife got eaten alive and never even felt herself get bit. The restaurants are ok. The pizza place, buffet and the Platinum restaurants we found were the best options. We found the Italian place was awful but that could be because we are from New York and are used to amazing Italian cuisine but it just wasnt good. We had sushi at the Japanese place one night and it was so so. The rooms are clean but very outdated and the beds are very uncomfortable. Our bathroom was updated and clean so we were happy about that. Overall we had a nice time and thought it was a good trip for the money. Word to the wise avoid going on spring or winter school breaks, the rates are jacked up astronomically.

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.
