My husband and I spent the day here for a shore excursion on our cruise. Although we paid a bit too much for the little amount of time we were there, we truly enjoyed our time. The staff was absolutely amazing. The property was nice, a bit small, but the food was good and the drinks even better!

Last Saturday my husband and I went to Jewels for the weekend to celebrate our Anniversary, I found it to be pretty cool, small in comparison to other hotels we have visited but before but had vibes. On arrival to the premises you felt as if you were entering the lush garden, but as you turn the corner you come... More

My husband and I stayed July 28th-August 1st for a short summer getaway. This was our first time in Jamacia as we travel to Mexico and I will be back to Jamacia before Mexico!!!

We stayed at the Jewel Dunn's River for 4 days and truly did not want to leave. We were at the resort for a wedding which could have been a disaster after the bride was injured, but the staff was amazing! Lots of events and great food. Coco and Happy Feet made every event a blast- their spirit is contagious!... More

My husband and I stayed at the Jewel Dunn's River to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. We researched before deciding on this resort, and we couldn't have asked for a better vacation. The resort is not huge like some of its neighbors, which allows you to get to know guests and staff more if you like. We stayed in a... More

I will try to make this brief, but informative! We had a good time, had a few laughs during the nightly entertainment, and drank some drinks. The resort is very small; not a lot of restaurants to choose from...not a lot of variety. A long way from the airport. we took a private van & it cost us $200, but... More
