Second visit to Jewel Dunn River
PeaceLoveDisney, Reidsville, North Carolina
Sun Feb 18 14:59:47 EST 2018
This was our fourth time visiting Jamaica and our second time visiting Jewel Dunn River. We like this Resort because it is smaller and more intimate. There were just a few things that bothered us about our stay this time. The first thing is the smoking policy. We were not aware that this was a non-smoking Resort any longer and that there were very limited areas where smokers could go. We understand the no smoking in public areas but there should be more than just two small areas that are very inconvenient to get to. I also do not understand why smoking is not allowed outside on your balcony. That is a non-public space and open-air. Second, the free transport shuttle when we previously used it on our first trip only stopped at Jewel Resorts. However this time the transport stopped at several resorts which caused the time to get to and from the airport to be quite lengthy.. this would make me think about getting private transportation or staying closer to the airport in the future One other suggestion that I would make is to make bottled water more available. We drink a lot of water and try to stay hydrated but only a few bottles were provided in the room and we had to ask for more each day. Coolers with water around the resort would be great so that between the heat and sun and drinking alcoholic beverages you can stay hydrated. The room we had was wonderful and the view was spectacular. The dinner Under the Stars is a wonderful thing that they do for their guests and you can see how much work they put into it. It's one of the things we most look forward to. We also got a chance to eat at the Jade Samurai this time and can't say enough good things. The food was fantastic so if you can snag a reservation you should do so The staff is amazing. They always have a smile on their face and go out of their way to make your stay a pleasant one We would like to recognize Morris, Damian, and Cornell as being great bartenders. I'm glad to see that they were still there after 4 years. We still would recommend this Resort but just hope that they would take our comments and suggestions into consideration.

Jamaica is stepping it up

I honestly had low expectations because I feel tourism in the Caribbean is better in the Bahamas and other places than in Jamaica. But the Jamaicans have stepped up their game in being accommodating to tourists. The workers/servers at Jewel Dunn's River Resort were very nice. The buildings themselves were nicer than I expected and had a Spanish flair to them. Our room was spacious and well kept. One big surprise for us was the constant tipping. After going to Sandals resorts many times, we thought all-inclusive resorts did not have tipping. At this resort, the guests were tipping every waiter and bartender. So bring your singles. The food was as good as you can expect for the Caribbean. Our biggest negatives were lack of water pressure and lack of hot water during peak showering times. Also, they run out of pool towels often. But overall, as always, Hilton does a nice job. I like their brands.

Just to say this is the best trip I’ve ever had since I’ve been going on vacation to different countries, there’s nothing to complain about I was so pleased, even if there was something to complain about the staffs I met here definitely changed that. I really love this resort from the food to the drinks,hospitality,the FRIENDLINESS of the staffs you can see that they care about their clients I was amazed. Thanks to uton the bartender,Cornell, and the others the best Service you gave Shawn also. Just a funny concern I would love to know how does CHEEKY from entertainment make those funny noises with his mouth lol, this guy is talented in so many ways, he’s very hilarious if you sit there and listen to him on that microphone you laugh so much, he’s the best I’ve ever seen not saying the others aren’t good but he stands out shout out to the mayor, Tami and Kim. Can’t wait to be back here.

Wonderful Vacation with Friends

We stayed 5 nights at the Jewel Dunn's river at the beginning of February. There were 8 of us. Our arrival was very nice....cool and towel and drink upon arrival. They took our luggage for us as our room was not ready yet. We went outside to have lunch and some drinks while we waited. It did seem to take awhile for our room to get ready but, it wasn't a big deal. The rooms were very nice. The liquor wasn't already filled which I thought was strange. You had to fill out a paper and hang it on your door to request what you wanted. We didn't do this as we usually don't spend much time in our room. We had a nice hot shower and got ready for dinner. The food was ok. I was hoping for more seafood. We didn't even get to eat at the Asian restaurant because we didn't get a reservation quick enough. We also didn't get to eat at Platinum. We all got ready everyone was dressed nice. Ladies dresses and men slacks. When we put our name in one of the men in our party had on nice shoes but, the toes were open. She told us we were not allowed to eat there. Those were the only shoes he had so we went to the Buffett. This was a little over the top. The girl at the Buffett was mad about this but, we told her it wasn't a big deal and we didn't want to make a fuss. We loved the pizzas. It was also nice to be able to get food anytime at the grill. The staff was amazing. Everyone was always happy and smiling. I had read some other reviews about the bees being terrible and never having any towels. The bees weren't that bad....really only annoying around the pop machine. We waited on towels a couple of times but, not for very long. The bartenders were awesome! We drank a lot and the drinks were always flowing! We didn't make it into the Bling nightclub. Always too tired at the end of the night. The super bowl party and the celebration for Bob Marley's Birthday were super fun! All in all we had a great trip!!!

Wonderful resort!!
