Jewel Dunn's River is a lovely resort. Everything was clean, the staff friendly and accommodating and the grounds lovely. We upgraded to an ocean view room which is well worth the extra money. We went to this resort because we were big fans of the former Breezes Runaway Bay which was taken over by Jewel and converted to family friendly. So we decided to give Jewel Dunn's River a try because it was adult only. We don't have a problem with family friendly resorts as long as the resorts are set up for families and adults. The resort really is lovely but not "our" resort. It didn't have the same feel as Breezes did and there were a couple of things that I was disappointed with. I found it very hard to believe that if I wanted a plate of jerk chicken, a "staple" of Jamaica, I had to order it through room service and pay for it, even though we had paid for an all-inclusive stay. The jerk chicken wraps by no means replace a plate of jerk chicken. The other thing was the entertainment was held inside. Not outside to enjoy the wonderful weather, although the steel drum band was awesome! Didn't enjoy the food as much as when we stayed at Breezes. The oven fired pizza was a saving grace. We had thought about going back to Runaway Bay even though it is now family friendly because we loved that resort until I read the reviews and that resort is no longer an option. The room service was wonderful, the staff was wonderful but we will not return. We will continue our quest to find "our" resort!
