My husband and I had a very enjoyable, relaxing vacation at the Jewel Runaway Bay. All of the staff are friendly and helpful and they go out of there way to make sure you're satisfied. I was very pleased with the food. We tried all of the eating locations and especially enjoyed Platinum and Moonstone (Italian). The poolside Grill was great too (open til 6am!), and the Coral Buffet which reopened our last two days. The hotel grounds, and pools are gorgeous. We also enjoyed the glassbottom boat, and I loved snorekling in that beautiful beach. The entertainment was good, and the Steel drum band was the best! There were several bars and all served up the drinks right! Our room accomodations were great, always cleaned with a towel animal on the bed, the mini fridge is stocked daily with pop, water, beer, wine, champaign, juice and the personal plunge pool is best - I used it every day! All-inclusive is the way to go and you will get your moneys worth and more at this resort. We recommend this resort and definitely will make a return trip in the future.
Pros beautiful, clean, comfortable room
Easy airport transport, check in, friendly staff
Con The buffet selection was limited and it was difficult to get reservations at a couple things (sunset cruise and Japanese restaurant)
Nice private hotel near Ocho Rios. The staff make you feel like you are a part of their family. Andre and Michelle at the front desk are great. I was traveling alone and didnt feel at all scared or lonely!!!
Wonderful experience!! I read alot of reviews before going so I pretty much knew what to expect. It is a smaller resort but very well kept. The staff are awesome they were all so very accomodating and nice. The entertainment staff are the best Omar, Gary and Storm are GREAT they are so energentic and happy they definitely helped to make our stay there fun! They hosted games and contests throughout the day with a different show each evening. Shout out to Barney the bartender best drinks ever and so very nice. The food was really good not a huge selection but everything they had was good from the jerk chicken, mixed vegetables, fresh fruit, and the last night we were there they had some really good lasagna and pasta bar. Definitely an unforgettable experience and the staff really helped to make it as great as possible. We definitely left feeling more like friends than guests, miss them all already I can't wait to go back.
The hotel is a nice casual laid back hotel but the rooms are very nice and modern and cozy. Location is out of the way which is nice to get away from hustle and bustle. Food very pricey which is my only negative. Key card system works well and gives no problem getting into room at first try. Second time my mother and I have stayed there but took my daughter
who was pleasantly surprised after three days in all inclusive resort. We all would definitely recommend and will be staying there again.
