Our first trip to Jamaica was absolutely fabulous thanks to the "JEWEL" Dunn River Resort! I love love love this place! My sweetheart and I stayed there for 8 wonderful days. I wanted to upgrade at the last minute but was informed that everything was sold out. That made me a bit nervous because I thought the resort would be crowded. After all we were there for a relaxing time. Little did I know how wrong I was. Can you say Pamper??? When you check in. They sit you in the lobby and greet you with a smile,cool cloth on a silver platter and a yummy cocktail. No standing in line at the front desk. When we made it too our room, I opened the door and it was soooo pretty and the balcony had a ocean view just like I paid for. I felt like a little kid on the play ground. Turns out I really didn't need the upgrade because the ocean view room was perfect. The property was gorgeous and well maintained. Yes the beach area was small but it didn't put any damper on our vacation. All the restaurants were great and so was the Bar area. I loved coming into our room in the evening time and finding our room cleaned again complete with a turn down and the Romantic music on the radio. We came in one day and there was a happy anniversary plate with two heart shaped chocolate cake next to the bed. So cute! Even though the resort was full there was never any crowding at the beach or the pool area. Plenty of towels, food drinks, and friendly staff. My favorite were the people in the gift shop and the girls in the spa who did our message. Thanks Cecile for a great message. If you are looking for relaxation with your love. I highly recommend The Jewel! It really felt like home and I'm very picky. Can't wait to go back to my new home away from home!
