I like the tennis court and was glad to play with the tennis pro Mr."Macho". my kids had good time in the pool and the beach. My wife really likes the room service, especially from the house keeper Charmin Thompson. She made our room... More

Checked in today for a Girls Trip & was not given the correct rooms. One room had a view of a dump truck, sand & construction site, had to beg to change it. Resort is 2 Stars at best, be careful if you have high standards, equivalent to a nice Motel 6. Limited food options.

My husband and I returned from the Jewel on Tuesday July 8th. Once again we were treated like close family. Our greeting as soon as our transfer pulls up to the door is a huge, "welcome home my friends," and that is echoed throughout the resort on our walk to our suite along with many hugs. We have been given... More

Let me start by saying that Jewel Runaway Bay is still our home away from home and 2nd to none. In our “short” visit we saw so many more changes and many more to come. New restaurant, start of the water park, more room renovations, etc…. With all of that being said, our 2 week stay was cut short due... More

I'm a travel agent who inspected 18 resorts in Jamaica. This resort has more to offer than any resort on the island. Laser tag, horse and carriage, a tennis pro, amazing food and service. It took first place in my mind. Such a perfect resort for groups, so many included extras!
