Fourth time to Jamaica but first time to JRB. Stayed Nov 14-21. The Gems we dealt with daily (Ash, Sunshine and Sparkle) were great, especially Ash. They really tried their best to get people involved in activties but several times me and my wife were the only participants. Wife and I only, so didn't deal with the kids Gems. Grounds... More

This is what 'All-Inclusive' means.....perfect hotel with exceptional staff and great service. The property is beautiful and clean with crystal clear waters (pool and beach). For the affordable price, one cannot go wrong with this choice and it caters for the entire family with daily activities and nightly entertainment....fun, sun, fun and more sun. The shower feature was lovely in... More

Stayed at JRB from Nov 10 to Nov 17 2014. As trip advisor was so helpful before out trip I thought I would give a full detailed review of our experience there to help future guests Check-in: This was the only hectic moment of the week. The resort did not seem ready for a bus full of guests. People were... More

Dear guest, thank you so much for staying with us and thank you as well for you review. I remember that check in. We had roughly 75 persons who came off the bus at once. Several of my staff jumped in and helped including myself serving welcome gem of the days and bringing luggage to the room. In the end... More

Stayed 18 wonderfull nights from 10/12-10/29. JRB just keeps getting better every time we go. My 41st stay and my wife's 12th. Have gone thru many changes at this resort over the years, but the new owners have finally got it right. Total relaxation and the best staff on the island for sure. The rooms have been upgraded and are... More

This was our second year at Jewel and it keeps getting better. We were a group of 14 ranging in age from 11 to 75 and everyone had a wonderful time. We loved all the updates that had been to the rooms and restaurants. We really enjoyed Moonstone and dining by the beach. One of the things we really like... More

Our group of five ladies(The Flip Flops) traveled to Jewel Runaway Beach Resort November 7th-12th and believe me 5 nights was not enough.

there was a disconnect between the reservation center and hotel. We were here for a family wedding and our rooms were no where near our children and the rest of our family. I had requested adjoining rooms, well in advance, with our children and could not get as they were not available. Later that day some one checked in to... More

- Overall it was a nice 3-day vacation. - Drive from the airport: about 1hr 15min. If you arrive during the day, the bus ride is very pleasant - they drive right along the sea-shore and the bus driver will tell you all about Jamaica, so you won't need a special tour :) - The resort is new, clean and...

Our stay started out a little rough, we paid for 2 rooms and were supposed to have adjoining rooms because we were traveling with our children, which didn't happen. We were told that's a "request" and there was nothing they could do. They would move us later in the week "if" they could. That was the beginning of the vacation.... More

Dear guest, I am so sorry that I offended you by not striking up a conversation after you screamed out to me about the color of my shirt.
