My wife and I visited this resort during our wedding anniversary. We have traveled to many locations but this was our first time in Jamaica. Our travel agent suggested The Jewel and most of the online reviews were positive so we took a chance.
I can honestly say this resort was one of the best I have ever visited. Check in was great, everyone was friendly and helpful. The room looked just like the pictures, the bed was very comfortable...and the room was clean.
The food and drinks were better than average for an all-inclusive resort. This resort has 6 restaurants with everything from burgers and pizza to fine dining. Making dinner reservations for the restaurants that required was effortless compared to some other all-inclusive resorts. Also the drinks were not watered down like some other locations and they stocked just about anything you could think of to drink.
What impressed me the most was the staff's dedication to actually entertaining the guest. They issued a daily newsletter the the events for the day...each night they offered various interactive entertainment like guest talent shows or dance lessons. One night they had a big party on the beach where we all ate, listened to a live band and enjoyed the various skits the staff (and guests) performed.
The only negative is the beach was relatively small compared to other locations we have visited. That said, the beach and water was clean and they did a good job of keeping out anyone that did not work for the resort.
As an adults only resort you can do as little or as much as you want.All and all, this was one of the best resorts we have visited and we will definitely return!
