My, now husband, and I were recently married at the Jewel Dunn's River Resort on July 10, 2015. From the moment we checked in, our stress seemed to melt away. The staff at the Jewel definitely go out of their way to make your stay perfect. We used the spa services several times too and they also are extremely kind... 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

My wife and I stayed at JDR for our honeymoon July 21-28. It exceeded every expectation that we had. The staff is amazingly friendly and go to great lengths to make you comfortable and ensure you are having fun. Bartenders Roger and Damion are awesome and make strong, tasty drinks. All of the wait staff in the restaurants and buffet... More

My husband and I got married last July and finally had time to enjoy a honeymoon this past January. Our very reliable travel agent recommended The Jewel as a perfect honeymoon destination.

excellent resort. The food was the best I've had at any resort to date. Staff was great, we accidently left our safe open one day and the cleaning lady locked it and alerted management. Nothing was taken. Now I'm not saying everyone would have been that honest but I was very impressed with how everything played out. If I went... More

This was our first trip to Jamaica, so my wife and I spent a considerable amount of time reading the reviews on The Jewel at Dunn’s River Falls (JDR), and felt comfortable in our decision to visit there. Hopefully our review will be able to completely convey the great time we had, and our satisfaction with the resort. Montego Bay... More

What a fabulous trip! My husband and I had such a great time at the Jewel! The Jewel was the perfect resort for us! We prefer to book at smaller, adults-only resorts. Smaller, so that you get to know the staff and guests. Adults-only because we are both teachers. This resort fit the bill perfectly. We met some friends there,... More
