Resort for a day

We spent the day at Jewel Dunn's River Resort. We had the use of the pool and beach along with the use of the equipment. They have several places to eat, a bar in the pool and plenty of beach chairs. The entire day was fantastic, we had a great time. Will definitely go back.

Wonderfully delightful surprise and tranquil setting.

I travel quite a bit and find that most of the places I stay at really don't overwhelm me. From the moment I got off the bus to go into the hotel , I was pleasantly surprised. Everything was just as it should be when you are on vacation. Stress free , calming , beautiful views and a comfy room and bed to crawl into at the end of the day. To top it off the employees are extremely helpful and just plain joy to have around.

INCREDIBLE STAFFS

Was a great vacation we all enjoyed it, will pass on the information to the rest of my family and friends so they can book here I’m sure they will definitely enjoy it too. All was fantastic from the bar, food, rooms the service from the staffs but what stood out mostly was the ENTERTAINMENT the activities in the day was great, we love the Michael Jackson show the impersonator was on point. A special special thank you to OSHANE aka cheeky from the entertainment team for hanging out with us, he’s a entertainer with a wonderful talent that makes you laugh, very sociable, miss you and hope to see you soon Bro. Love jewel.

Lovely beach; pity about the noise

The Jewel Dunn's River offers an mixed experience. A lot to enjoy, with a few things which may have you shaking your head. Its beach may not be long, but it is has soft sand, lots of comfy loungers, shelter from the sun, the happy Basil running round and dispensing rum punches; and warm, inviting sea. You could spend the day there, with a break to stroll a few paces to the place cooking jerk chicken, the one preparing pizzas, the nearby buffet or just to get a delicious frozen coffee. Couldn't be more relaxing. So far so good. However... in the background, around the large main pool, is a trio inviting the younger (?) visitors to take part in quizzes, dress up in fancy dress or do aquasizing. And even if there are only half a dozen people taking part, these pastimes are carried out with encouragement via a microphone and a loudspeaker which reaches far beyond those who wish to take part to shatter the peace of those who do not. This included my wife and I and many other people I spoke to. You may wish to retreat to the far end of the beach for part of the morning and the afternoon to avoid reggae rap and shouting. This also happens some evenings, too. Which is why you should not pay the extra money for an ocean-facing room in the Sapphire block, as it is immediately above where all this activity takes place. These rooms are in what the management calls the Activity Area. What the management calls The Quiet Area is at the far end of the very pleasant grounds, around the smaller pool - and there are only a few rooms there. If you want a quieter room in the Sapphire building these face the high hills at the front of the hotel, or are in the most expensive block which faces away from the rest of the hotel itself. I talked to the general manager about the noise and she asked the entertainment people to turn down the volume. Which they did - sometimes and just a little. As for the quality of the rooms, our corner seaview room was large and comfortable, even if the room - and presumably other Sapphire rooms - badly need updating and redecorating. An odd hangover from years ago: when did you last see an empty glass-fronted cupboard containing four optics which would have held four bottles of spirits? However, it was a spacious room with a large balcony. The food was, as with most Caribbean hotels, a mix of good and optimistic. The Caribbean food was, unsurprisingly, the best; especially in the buffet. Lots of wonderful soups, fish, veg, meat and tropical fruits. There was a memorable dinner-for-all on the pier. Delicious and also atmospheric. My Italian wife found the Italian restaurant a bit of a joke, but then you can't exactly get Italian ingredients in Jamaica, so no surprise there, including a tiramasu one of whose ingredients was custard However, the Japanese 'cabaret' restaurant served up generous and tasty rice, prawns, beef, tuna and a not too bad miso soup. The Platinum - semi-formal - restaurant is known to the staff as the AC restaurant, due to its having no windows and fridge-like air-conditioning. The food was just about OK, but not not worth the risk of catching a cold. Best stick to the local fare in the poolside buffet. The staff were lovely. One of the happiest aspects of a Jamaican holiday is the friendliness, fun and helpfulness of all the people who work there; and this was the case at Jewel Dunns River, one of the quieter ones being Bertram, a restaurant manager who was charm itself. How to sum up what was a memorable two weeks for both positive and negative reasons? The hotel's guests have, over the past three year, been of a progressively younger age group, according to the manger. And a guest said to me that it reminded him of the 18-30 hotels of the past. So you may love it, or it may just be several decibels too far for you.

The Jewel Dunn River Resort is an excellent resort for adult couples. The room was very clean. The staff was very attentive to all our needs. The cost of the resort was an excellent value. The size of the resort was especially nice. NOT TOO BIG! It was just the right number of rooms.
