Spent September 14th thru 31st at the Jewel Dunn River Resort. All the staff were friendly, the rooms were clean, and drinks were plenty!
BabyFace is so cute!!! Ask him how he got his name. He did orientation for us and arranged for a taxi, Michael Butler, to take us on town for some sightseeing.
There is no Starbucks in Jamaica. I was craving a Frappuccino. Damion, my favorite bartender, created a drink for me named Luscious Lisa. If you like coffee, kahlua, baileys, etc., ask Damion to make you a coffee Luscious Lisa! I'd like to come back and know my drink is still going strong.
Our favorite waiter was Montgomery. He is soooo professional yet makes you feel at home. He is absolutely the best waiter there!
Our day maid Judy kept our room so clean and was so friendly. I do have a recommendation though: remove the 2 oriental rugs beside the beds. They're old and hard to keep clean. The rooms will look more modern and upscale without them.
We spent more time at the quiet pool. The first day there I stayed at the loud pool and then began going to the quiet pool. I observed that many people had started out at the loud pool and moved to the quiet pool. The quiet pool could use some "quiet" Jamaican music.
The resort does not stock liquor or beer in the rooms. I was surprised because all the resorts I stayed at have always keep the liquor stocked in the room.
Great resort and highly recommend you vacation there.
