I came to Jewel Runaway Bay to attend a wedding. There were 40+ persons staying here attending the wedding and no one had anything good to say. 1. The food was inauthentic and of subpar quality. 2. Every evening was an ordeal when trying to have a large party eat at the 2 "restaurants". The staff were not accomodating of... More

Dear Guest, when our concierge called your room on the 10th you said "all is wonderful, many thanks" When our concierge called your room on the 11th you said " I am having a very good time except the phone line has a bit of static" We sent someone to the room to rectify it. There was no other mention... More

I went to the Jewell this past week and had no clue where to stay. I booked this resort based on reviews only and was super surprised how much we lived it!!! We did stay in room 1039 which was a 1 bedroom suite and it was perfect for our 2 teen girls to have a separate sleeping area and... More

Dear guest, We had plenty in the storeroom. I am sorry that it did not get to you fast enough. Actually if you ask your butler they could even bring you one.

We stayed at the Jewel Runaway Bay 9/21 -9/28. We've visited the Caribbean several times and this resort has the best beach we have ever visited. Snorkeling is great, beautiful coral, lots of fish, calm water and soft sand. We were in room 1021, great 5 head shower and excellent views. Our bellman, Kirk, did an excellent job telling us...

For starters. I must disclose that for years when it comes to scheduling a vacation I prefer to rent a condo. Because of earlier experiences with all inclusive resorts, my opinion is that most of them are overrated and their overall quality of service is mediocre. Perhaps, for that same reason I have never submitted any reviews. Let's move on... More
