I traveled to Jamaica with my best friend. We stayed at the Jewel for 14 nights from 22nd Dec 21 - 5th Jan 22. So lets start with the highlights of our stay. The staff at this hotel are lovely. They are kind and very helpful. The room was spacious and cleaned daily. Fresh towels were provided on a daily basis. There are choices of restaurants to dine at during your stay and there is a great little place on the beach that does jerk pork at chicken at lunch time. There is also a Grill bar which offers cheeseburgers, fries, wraps, salads and nachos. This is open till 2am in the morning. On the beech you are provided with Kayaks, body boards, pedalos and free glass bottom boat trips and other trips. These are all included with your all inclusive package. There are great shows at night, but due to Covid19 the nightclub was closed. There is a great spot on the beach where you can get smoothies made with fresh fruit. These were very tasty. The bar offers all of your expected brands of spirits and a great choice of cocktails. The hotel has lots of hand sanitizers and they are doing a great job at keeping their guests safe. The gym is located down by the beach and is open 24/7. There are tennis courts which are also open 24/7. There is a little gift shop onsite and you can play pool or ping pong. There is also a water slide and lots of little hidden jacuzzies dotted about the complex. There is a lovely coffee shop on site which offers lots of varieties of coffees and they are all wonderful quality and again part of your all inclusive package. Downsides: The beach is man made and the sand is not white like most beaches I have been to in the Caribbean. The sea is cornered off so the water only comes up to your chest. Not great if you like to swim. The breakfast buffet was disgusting and needs attention. We had to live on eggs on toast as the bacon was cold and burned and all other foods on offer were of a poor quality. The staff at breakfast are attentive when you first arrive, but this only lasts if you continuously tip. I have a rule that I only tip on the 2nd week, this gives me time to establish the quality of the persons service before making tips. I think if they can sort out the breakfast then this hotel is pretty much perfect. The grounds are maintained beautifully and the staff are lovely. I would not hesitate to go back to this hotel and would recommend it to friends. The Asian restaurant, Jamaican restaurant, Italian restaurant are all worth a visit. There are lots of choices of foods throughout the day and plenty of spaces to book into them. There are always lots of sun beds available and two main pools which always have space to sit by. They both have swim up pool bars and the staff are great. This hotel will not let you down. Don't take any notice of the moaning minis that write poor reviews about this hotel because they are wrong. My only piece of advice for the hotel would be to offer a full English breakfast option and ensure this is kept hot. But that's simply a personal preference and you as a guest may enjoy the foods on offer at breakfast time. So if you have booked your stay here, get on that plane and enjoy it. I had two weeks of pure relaxation and bliss. Thank you for reading this review and if you have any questions simply ask.

This resort is truly a hidden gem of Runaway Bay. The layout of the resort was awesome. The food at each and every restaurant and snack bar was excellent. The hotel has a very good assortment of premium liquor collection. The hotel staff was amazing...everyone we came in contact with was so nice and courteous. Housekeeping and room service was just a phone call away. Shout out to Concierge Melissa, Bellman Rayvaugh, TJ, Kerisha at Surfside Bar, and funny man Blackie Chan. We will definitely be back...Thanks!!!

Wife and I visited the first week of April, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves just relaxing on the beaches. We found out quickly that it was the "winter" of the Caribbean, but that didn't stop the fun. The ocean was rough all week so we couldn't take advantage of all the water activities. We did do the glass bottom boat ride and the booze cruise snorkeling. Metro was a wonderful captain and a great host. I highly recommend both activities! The food was good. Even with Covid we were able to try all the restaurants, just make sure that you make reservations soon as you arrive! If you're expecting fine dining at its finest, this may not be for you. If, however, you enjoy good quality food, you won't be disappointed. They had a good variety of American and Caribbean cuisine. I was a bit disappointed in the lack of seafood choices, but when I mentioned to Christa our butler age arranged an oceanside grilled shrimp for us!!! As stated in other reviews the pizza is very good. I loved the fresh grouper from Platinum and absolutely savored the Lamb from Moonstone. The Aquamarina Barv and Grill was an awesome spot for drinks and good American food. The tuna wraps were delicious! It was a little out of the way which was nice because it wasn't as busy or crowded. There was always an open seat at the swim up bar. Jade Samurai was a very entertaining dining event. Be sure to find which days they are open and get a reservation. The buffet was decent for a buffet. The resort itself was extremely clean and organized. They had plentiful hand sanitizing places. As stated in other reviews, the staff was very friendly, helpful, and pleasant. We felt like family, they did all they could to help us relax and enjoy our vacation. The room was very clean with a nice view of the ocean. We stayed in the Junior Butler Suite. The staff was my favorite part of the experience. I want to give a huge shout out to the following staff: Christa our butler was PHENOMENAL!!! She was extremely helpful and friendly. She checked in throughout the day making sure that we were satisfied and taking care of. She definitely made our stay much more enjoyable. Thank you Christa!!! Seandepaul was our waiter and both Platinum and Moonstone. He was very friendly and even took time to talk and make a personal connection. Maxwell was a humorous and knowledgeable driver that took us into Ocho Rios for for shopping. On the way back we were the only ones on the bus so he let us sit up front and took us through downtown St. Anns for a little tour. To wrap it up, Jewel is a very good middle of the road all inclusive resort.

My stay was great, the food was great, the grounds and ambiance was perfect, not to mention their nightly entertainment. Special thanks to the staff, especially Priscilla from concierge and Kerisha at the bar my stay was great. I'm looking to another there again soon.

We have had a sum "accidentally " withdrawn from our credit card and even after several emails with two managers, the money is yet to be refunded, and to date my last email was not responded to by either.
