I went to the Jewel Dunn's River from June 6-13, 2013 with my best friend for a little get away.
Check in was easy and the staff were very friendly. Beautiful grounds, lovely pools and good ammenities like the gym, pitch&putt golf course, tennis, basketball and water sports.
I loved the size of the resort: it was not one of those sprawling properties where you never see the same people twice. More intimate - but never felt crowded. This is definietly a great resort for couples and although I was travelling with a friend we never felt awkward or excluded as there was a good mix of types of vacationers (married, honeymooners, groups to celebrate birthdays, and friends of all ages.).
The pool areas were separated just enough so you could be part of the lively activities at one or you could find peace and quiet at the other.
The actvities' staff were young and energetic and made a personal connection with each and every guest. Look for "the Mayor" if you go there - he's absolutely the best!
I also loved the Acqafit classes every morning at the pool.
The food in the "a la carte" restaurants was excellent; particularly Moonstone (Italian); the buffet had awesome variety and the 7/24 hour grill was very convenient.
I had a beautiful seaside massage on the first day and enjoyed one of the off property tours (horseback riding and swim).
All in All - a delightful vacation. I would definitely go back
