Myself and 5 other ladies (all in our 20's) took a wonderful 5 day vacation to this Jewel. The staff is amazing and they go out of their way to make you trip worry free and enjoyable. Food was great! We did not get a reservation for the Japanese (make reservations ASAP if you want to dine there) That was... More

If you stay here you will not be disappointed! The staff as so kind and accommodating. They aim to please!

There are no issues with finding space at... More

We stayed here Nov 15-22/2014. First night not very good. We were given a room in the Emerald Lanai building. It is a 2 storey "motel" type section. We were on the 2nd floor and told it was a "shared balcony". What this means is it's a wrap around outer hallway! No where to sit out and no where to... More

The Jewel Dunn’s River is smaller and older than most all inclusive hotels in Jamaica and to my mind that gives it a certain charm that some newer, larger properties do not have. It also benefits from lovely gardens which do not appear around newer hotels. My wife and I found the nature walk around these gardens, provided by a... More

This was our first (not our last) visit to Jamaica and The Jewel Dunn's River Beach Resort and we were very pleased. Our room was very clean and updated. The food was good (for a buffet). We felt very safe. The pool was great and loved the beach. The "Mayor" (activities guy) knew my husband by name. They only allow... More

The resort was 100% sold out but if fealt like we were the only ones there. Our hats go off to the... More

This place is beautiful and clean . 2 great pools with day and evening entertainment. Gorgeous beach. Also, the food was good and the drinks were strong. No skimping here. We took a great excursion on a catamaran to snorkel and climb dunns river falls. Very reasonably priced and the best excursion I have been on. Highly recommend this resort... More

All inclusive holiday resorts may be your thing, but this was my first experience of one and I've discovered it's very much not mine. I'll keep the pros and cons simple... Hotel Good: It's clean, well looked after, safe and the staff are friendly and helpful. There's a gym (without air con though), a nurse and a shop too. Bad:... More

I was here with my two grown up daughters from 7th November to 19th November 2014. We had a fantastic time, the staff all worked incredibly hard and nothing was too much trouble. The gardeners gave us a flower every day, which was a lovely touch. The food was excellent every time we had it, and there was plenty of... More

My husband and I spent four nights in one of the sapphire ocean-view rooms for our honeymoon. Hands down, our room was stunningly beautiful. We had a breathtaking ocean view from the window and balcony provided. The room had updated furnishings and decor, and a very roomy bathroom to boot. The resort was excellent. There are a couple pools, cascading... More
