Sadly just got back from a great stay at the Jewel. I've been to several all-inclusive resorts throughout the years, but this trip may have topped them all. The staff truly makes your stay in Jamaica a memorable one. From the entertainment...Dimplez, Barbie, Swagg, Dimitri. To the housekeeping and restaurant servers...Bridget, Paulo, Kimika aka "Lil Kim", Charley, Choy at the pool...and soooo many more great people, I just honestly can't say enough about them, and apologize for the many more I haven't mentioned.
The resort is on the small side, which makes it nice in my opinion. After a few days, everyone knew your name. Felt more like a family type atmosphere. There are three pools, along with swim up bars at each of them. All are great, but I spent most of my time at the main pool/beach area. The beach is very small, so if you're a walker you'll be disappointed. But don't let that turn you away from here. There is plenty to do. Free snorkeling, scuba diving, shopping trip to Ocho, Dunns River...there also is a small gym. Nothing spectacular, but it gets the job done.
Rooms are all updated, very nice. Small but clean. You're on vacation, no need for a suite!
Food is good, just wish there were more options at the buffet. It seemed to be much of the same every day, and limited selections, i.e., bigger salad bar would be great.
The platinum restaurant was probably my favorite. The steak was excellent, as was the brownie dessert. Pizza was really good too!
Fridge is stocked daily. If there is something that you want, just ask! Everyone is great, and will bend over backwards to acommodate you. Please tip the staff...they are hard workers. It's nice to show your appreciation and to see the smiles on their faces!!
So would I recommend this resort to my friends...absolutely!!! I'm not one to be a repeat guest, I like to experience other places, but I can tell you that I already can't wait to return to Jewel!
