I have just got back from this resort. We were renewing our wedding vows and upon arrival we found that we had been upgraded to a sea view suite, it was fantastic. The staff in the whole resort was so friendly and helpful and worked extremely hard. We received a phone call most days to see if everything was OK.... More

Words can not describe the amazing experience I had at Jewel Runaway Bay. The food (its variety and quality) was phenomenal. The staff was always engaging, polite and attentive. The pool and beach experience was amazing. The waterpark-----a dream! The grounds were impeccably clean. The room was wonderful, including the personal plunge pool outside. My 2-year-old daughter had a wonderful... More

The hotel is not one of those 4000 rooms hotel but rather 250 rooms type of places where you are not stuck with 8000 people on the beach. The beach front is clean. I like the fact that the resort is in a nice lagoon adjacent to a public beach which allows you to mingle with the locals if you... More

After reading some reviews stating that the rooms need updating I wasn't expecting very much, but upon arrival I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel isn't a luxury hotel but after researching before booking I knew what to expect. The grounds and the pools are nice and the food was varied and tasty. There was something for everyone. The only major... More

On our trip to Jamaica we spent my birthday at the Jewel resort in Ochi Rios. They have a pretty cool water park that my kids had a ball at. We rented a cabana for $50 US for the day (a must in my opinion) and had a place to chill out of the sun and a lovely gentleman brought... More

Access to this water park costs $60usd, and includes access to the water park and food from one bar and grill. The water park has two slides, one you use with a tube, the other you just slide down. There is also a lazy river that surrounds the slides. The bar serves sliders, pizza, tuna wraps and nachos. The bar... More

I want to take a moment to say thank you to the amazing staff at Jewel Resorts Runaway Bay. We were struggling with booking at some of the newer all-inclusive hotels on the island, but was very disappointed with the response, either it was too early to know the rates or they did not respond timely. A family friend recommended... More
