Just returned yesterday from a stay at the Jewel Dunne River Resort, overall had a very nice trip. The hotel grounds are lovely and very well maintained. I stayed in the Emerald Lanai - and was very happy with the room. The property is on the smaller side, which was fine for a chilling, relaxing vacation. The Emerald rooms are... More

My husband & I visited The Jewel Dunn's River Beach Resort & Spa last week for our first resort vacation ever. We were looking for an all-inclusive package offering luxurious accommodations with good service, warm weather, a romantic ambience, and delicious food & drinks (not necessarily in that order), and this Jewel resort proved to be a real gem ;)...

This was my first experience of all inclusive. I also had a broken foot (in plaster) for the two week break, so couldn't get around as well as I would have liked. Both facts have influenced my review. I am aware that The Jewel Dunn's River Beach Resort & Spa is smaller than some of the other resorts in the... More

We returned home last week from a 6 night stay at Jewel Dunn's River. We stayed in a Diamond Ocean View Concierge room and have no regrets about that! The views were spectacular and we loved our patio overlooking the pool and ocean. Pros: The resort did not at all seem crowded. We never had a long wait to any... More

Great food, friendly staff. Loved hanging out in the hot tubs late into the night. One of the best AI experiences I've had so far. Came here with another couple. We can't wait to come back here next spring.

Stayed here for 6 days. Beautiful atmosphere. Lots of space and the hotel was full. Would have like to have seen more beach service. As long as you stayed on deck they would bring you drinks. Food was good, take into consideration they food service they have. Fresh vegetables. Smoked Salmon was amazing. Jesters pizza loved the varieties. Japenese hibachi... More

We have visited Jamaica 12 times. This was our first time we went to Jewel at Dunn's River. We can't say enough positives about our experience. To start with the resort was booked to capacity yet never felt crowed. Always a great chair available at the pool or on the beach. Never waited in a line for food and was... More

Six of us spent the week of March 3 - 10th at the Jewel Dunn's River Resort. We were a group ranging from age 46 to 70. This was a first Jamaican trip for all of us. Our first impression of the JDR was of a gorgeously groomed, clean resort with full lush foliage and many welcoming spots to sit... More
