We spent the last week of January at Jewel Runaway Bay. We've vacationed in Jamaica eight times, and visited other all inclusives, from Mo Bay to Ocho Rios. Jewel was a good price on an Apple Vacation, with a direct flight from OHare.
The resort is small and lushly landscaped with a beautiful, well-groomed beach. The staff is very pleasant and competent. Thank you, Charmaine! The whole place is kept very clean, and constant maintenance was evident. Concierge service was terrific. This could be a more highly rated resort except for a few, significant things. (There are no "problems" in Jamaica....so I'll call them things!)
The room decor and furnishings in the building we stayed in are a little tired; well-kept and very clean, but tired. The noise from the evening entertainment was very loud and late. The buffet had beautifully displayed food, but quite a bit of repetition. Cucumbers sliced three different ways are not three offerings! The food was good and there was always plenty to eat....just a little monotonous. Pizza was excellent in the pizza garden -open from early lunch until late dinner. Jade, the Japanese restaurant was very entertaining. Thanks, Anthony! I agree with previous reviewers that more vegetables would be an improvement.
The people are what makes Jewel appealing. The price was quite good and the sun was bright and the days and nights were warm. There is currently no incentive for guests to return to this resort, and no exchange privileges with the other two Jewel resorts in the same area. This may influence my choice of a resort for next year!
