Might make this our new Vacation place.

The resort is smaller, but just the right size for getting around easily. Beach is wide and plenty of chairs and areas for sun and shade. My only issue was the area where the free rentals and the boats are parked seems to be larger than the swimming area you are allowed in. For those who don't snorkel would be nice to have the reef area separated from the strictly swim area. The boats could be moved further down the beach to enlarge the swim area, then the poor lifeguards would not have to get swimmers out of that area so much of he day. Other than that the beach is beautiful and very well kept. This was our first trip to Jamaica and won't be the last as the Jewel Runaway Bay very much impressed us. Almost all workers are very friendly and nice even the ones taking care of the landscaping and walkways. Always with a smile. The only ones that were not very impressive was the desk at night, a girl on duty looked at everyone with disgusted face. And an issue at the gift shop at the hotel. My 13 yr old daughter was looking around in the store for a gift to take home and I overheard one clerk say to the other to keep and eye on her while she took a break! Stunned I said out loud I heard what she said and you don't need to worry she won't take anything she is looking for something to buy. I was really surprised as this was our first time hearing anything like this while on the island. The Jewel is now under new ownership and will probably get a much needed update to rooms etc.when they change hands but I hope it remains the same with it's great staff and also size. I would love to return sometime in the near future. This could be our new Vacation place to visit again and again... Thank you Jewel Runaway Bay!

Family Vacation

The rooms were outdated. Not enough pools or places to eat in the resort. The staff were very friendly. The water park was fun and entertaining. The food was average. Overall I enjoyed myself but I probably wouldn’t recommend this resort to a friend until they update the rooms.

Wonderful Service, friendly staff

We enjoyed our stay at the Jewel Runaway Bay Resort. The rooms were comfortable. The food was pretty good overall. We loved the breakfasts and dinner at the Jade Samurai. The beach was very nice and the pools were great. We enjoyed the water park. The best part of the trip was the staff. Everyone was so friendly. Two bartenders, Kavoy and Karrol were especially kind and friendly to our family. We definitely would recommend it to a friend.

Could have been better

I take issue with the pictures and description of this resort as portrayed online. From my view, I can't see where a recent renovation took place and the golf course was far from PGA quality. Upon arrival my family of four was taken to our "waterview room" we paid extra for, which only had a view of the pool (not the beach/ocean) and had 1 king bed and 1 twin bed in it! The hotel was full so the two options were to have traveled all the way to Jamaica to share a king bed with my spouse and 12 year old son and give my 15 year old daughter the twin bed (not a great option) OR move half of the furniture in the room (two chairs and a table) out to the balcony and move a dresser over to accommodate ANOTHER twin bed (also didn't seem like a great solution). We opted for the latter and were packed like sardines in our room, but truthfully didn't spend much time there. It would be helpful when booking online to be able to indicate not only that you have 4 guests for the room, but that you'd like a room with two bed (doubles; not queens at this resort) or a room with one king bed. We were not the only unhappy customers that experienced the above mentioned room debacle and I think this solution during online booking would save families and the resort a lot of hassle. The other odd thing about the room was the lack of privacy in the bathroom. The main entry to the bathroom did not have a door! The washroom inside had a frosted glass door but felt too exposed. The restaurants were good. We enjoyed cuisine from each throughout our week stay and enjoyed the special event on the 4th of July that allowed you to enjoy all the restaurants outside on the lawn. I found there to be some extremely wonderful employees at the resort that made our lackluster feeling about the place subside at times. Thanks to Chevaughn in consierge, Demetry at the pool and Netesha at the spa. While we will not return to this hotel, I wish them well and thank them for the above average customer service.

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.
