While I found the resort to be just so when it came to the food and amenities- I LOVED the staff. I would go back just to see them again. They made the trip. And the girls in the kids camp were absolutely amazing. They thoroughly enjoyed our kids and made it so easy to come and go so Joe... More

Just got back from weeks vacation at Jewel we arrived on a sunday, and returned yesterday Dec 7. This was our second all inclusive weve ever taken but the last was 15 years ago in Mexico for our honeymoon. This was a much better choice. Even though it rained a bit through the week we still had an awesome time.... More

We have visited a lot of Caribbean resorts. Jewels is the best one so far. Everybody was very hospitable and they were so eager to please us and meet all our requests. We complained about our room to be infested with mosquitoes and we were moved right away in a mosquito free one. They packed sandwiches for the kids when... More

There was a big fight in my house for a 15th Wedding Anniversary travel destination. She wanted the kids to go, I wanted to relax. I didn't think there was a place to go that could hit both criteria. Boy, was I wrong. My kids are 9 and 12 and while they usually get along, going anywhere with them in... More

This was our second family vacation to JRB in the past 2 years. We are 2 fortysomething adults and 2 kids (13 and 11). We travel several times a year mostly to Caribbean destinations and have been to many all-inclusives. Jamaica is our favorite island and JRB is one of our favorite hotels. Now it's definitely not the most posh... More

We have not been to resort yet so the review is not about resort but rather about the positive experience I have had so far of dealing with the management in preparation for our upcoming stay.

i took my family to Jewel Bay, but this will probably be the last time. Upon check in all seemed fine. I was assigned room 1232. Well around 8:00 pm I called maintenance as our room was close to 85 degrees on my thermometer. Maintenance arrived at 11:00 with a screw driver.? After about 7 minutes I suggested he get... More

We stayed at JRB in March with our 13 year old granddaughter. Having stayed at JDR previously we thought the JRB would be a great choice. She looked forward to the teen camp, to try to find others her own age to hang out with for the week. The teen camp was pretty much non-existant and she ended up hanging... More
