My husband and I went to this resort for our honeymoon in '08, when it was Breezes. We were curious if it would be the about the same this time, now that it's Jewel (and we brought our 11 & 15 year old boys with us this time, yay!). It was even better, actually, which is saying a lot because... More

The staff are truly wonderful. Everyone was warm, friendly, and respectful. I liked that it wasn't as large as the other hotels which are so huge that they are cold. As a "local", sometimes we aren't as valued as the overseas tourists but that wasn't the case at all. Food was pretty good, "Egg boy" was my favourite, he made... More

Visited JRB for second time in 10 months. Will return again soon. As we stepped off of the shuttle, first person we encounter says he remembers us from our previous visit, welcomes us home. Wonderful start to a wonderful vacation. This resort is amazing. The staff at this resort is absolutely the best. Kerrol, Ojay, Jason, Leo, Godfrey and every... More

Just returned from a 2 week stay at the "Jewel" and cannot fault it. The staff are amazing and cannot do enough for you. I have stayed in several hotels in Jamaica and can honestly say this was the best experience of them all! The hotel is well laid out with beautifully kept gardens, the gardeners work so hard and...

Words really can not describe how incredible my stay at JRB was. But I will try because I feel like everyone should experience what I did for themselves. From beginning to end, I can't say one negative thing. Not one. The overall resort and facilities are better than any other resorts I have stayed at. Hands down. I have travelled... More

We returned yesterday from JRB where we had a 2 week fantastic holiday. We asked for a ground floor room & were extremely pleased to be upgraded to a room with a plunge pool & patio. This was a godsend given the very high temperature & we cooled off in it several times daily. It was also handy as we... More

I'll try to be as detailed as possible as I get some great tips from TA reviews on resorts. Arrived Saturday 08/23/2014 via JetBlue from JFK. Flight was uneventful. My wife, Myself, and my 14 year old son. Immigrations/Customs was a breeze. We were through Img/customs in 30 minutes total from start to finish on a Saturday afternoon. Contracted with... More

This was our third visit in three years and the Jewel Runaway Bay didn't disappoint. The wonderful front desk staff recognized us and upgraded our room to one with a plunge pool. The kids club welcomed my 7 year old daughter back and took excellent care of her. The concierge desk called every day to make sure our stay was... More

The rooms are clean and staff friendly. i visited in the off season so not sure what the high season is like, however it was very pleasant. Close enough to areas outside where one can buy crafts and see the town of Runaway Bay & Ocho Rios. Dolphin Cove and Dunn's River Falls are not far off for a day... More
