“Traveled for wedding”

Absolutely Perfect!!! There were over 30 of us for our wedding and everyone agreed this was the most amazing place. Staff is very friendly and attentive. Food is fantastic. Great views. Beautiful large rooms and the pools and water park are the best!!!

Room Tip: Get water view 3rd floor!

All I have to say is this resort is Amazing. I travelled with my husband and two children (6 and 1) and we all had a blast. Very kid friendly resort. My daughter begged me to go to the kids club everyday. The waterpark was a hit. The resort was very clean, couldn't find a leaf out of place.The staff were very friendly. I would definitely return in a heart beat

Room Tip: We had room 1202 facing the waterpark. We had no issues with mosquitoes at all in our rooms. Maybe b...

This was our first family vacation in years, there were 11 of us ranging in ages from 6 to 65. The Jewel has something for all age groups.

When we arrived in Montego Bay the airport customs process was seamless. There was a large air conditioned shuttle bus waiting to transport us to the JRB Resort. The ride is a solid hour from the MBJ/Sanaster airport to the resort, just sit back and enjoy the view.

We arrived at the resort around 3:30 pm, we were greeted with warm smiles, cool face towels and refreshing drinks. Our rooms were available when we arrived. We quickly showered and changed so that we could join the Manager's Cocktail Reception and dinner which is every Thursday.

The staff is wonderful, I can't say enough about how helpful and attentive the staff is. The resort is white glove clean, even the public restrooms. The sand is raked daily, the pools cleaned & chlorine levels checked throughout the day. The rooms are a bit dated, but still very clean,

Let's talk about the food. OMG amazing, everything was served fresh hot & delicious. A couple of times we requested items that were not on the menu and it was no problem getting those items. We ate at all the restaurants, they were all very good. The all night snack bar is amazing. There's nothing like grabbing a burger or jerk chicken at 2am.

The drinks at all the bars were sooooo good, can't say enough about the "Dirty Banana", "Miami Vice" and "Hummingbird", a word of advise get a shot of Southern Comfort in all the drinks it makes a huge difference.

My husband rented a cabana for the day, it was great. It included full butler service and a private beachside dinner for two. It was very romantic.

The entertainment staff is also great, Tinkerbell, Sunshine, Urkel and many more work very hard at providing a great time for all guest.

I do have one request for all resort visitors: Please, please, please remember to tip all the staff. I know the resort l is all inclusive, but the entire staff works so hard to accommodate each guests every need it's only right that we show our appreciation to them by tipping.

If you're looking for a great resort with wonderful staff and plenty of activities for all age groups. Then look no more, Jewel Runaway Bay Resort & Golf is the place to vacation.

Thanks again to the wonderful staff and the General Manager of JRB for making our family vacation one that we'll cherish forever.

Room Tip: Request a room with a water view on the 2nd floor - You can see both the pool & the sea.

Its not often that you find a great resort property that works well for family. The Jewel Runaway Bay is one of my favourite hotels. They have great staff, the property is low-rise (2 floors) and is just a great garden setting for kids to run around and enjoy. Their children centre staff are very attentive and the activities appropriate for the age groups. The food choice and taste were above average, with children's stations at the appropriate height for the young ones to be independent at meal times. The beach and new waterpark - absolutely gorgeous!

Room Tip: Book early

We recently visited this resort with my four year old son. We had a Blast! ( his words). They have several pool options, plus you getffull access to their fabulous, first class water park. They have an onsite kids center included with your stay where talented, professional staff will watch your child and keep them engaged in fun activities all day and into the night. We enjoyed our food very much and enjoyed trying their various restaurants. We had a top notch stay. Our only concern was the excess of mosquitoes in the rooms and hallways. As we were leaving it looked like they were setting up to fumigate, which would hopefully have taken care of the problem. But overall we enjoyed the facilities and staff very much and look forward to our next trip.
