The Jewel Dunns River Beach Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
A home away from home. The food was very well done. I also enjoyed the beverage. The hotel staff was very courtous to both locals and foreigners alike. The ambiance was also very good in terms of cleanliness and relaxation. I also had plan to go to the beach, but then I changed my mind due to the cold front, windy weather and the rough seas.
An excellent, value for money all inclusive resort. The staff, without a doubt are the biggest asset to this resort, all polite, friendly, always say hello and are always wearing a massive smile. Nothing wad ever too much hassle or trouble, it's hard to pick out anyone in particular, as all staff seemed to go 'above and beyond', but I'd like to give special mentions to Garfield in the Irie Cafe, Gregory at the Grill, Jason at the swim up pool bar and the lovely lady that makes the pizza bases and pizza's.I would describe this adults only resort as a modern hotel, in a great setting (apparently it used to be a Sandals resort, so that should give you some inkling as to what is on offer), this resort does have a little bit of a party / celebratory vibe going on at times in the day or night, but nothing too full on or in your face. Chilling out is what we set out to do and this is exactly what we did.There is a daily program of events, so you know exactly what is happening, and you can pick and choose as you wish to.The resort is by no means 'massive' nor is it 'small'. All aspects of the grounds are immaculately maintained. There are three or four restaurants, as well as a snack hut, coffee hut (I recommend the iced coffee with rum cream) and a pizza station that serves up some of the finest, freshest tasting pizza's that I've had.The weekly special BBQs and banquets are another great touch.The hotel is near to local excursions, such as Dunns River Fall (well worth a visit) as well as a few others, but I'd say to take advantage of the great facilities and spend as much time as possible in the resort.Thanks for a honeymoon to remember.We'll hopefully be back soon.
Great stay I would highly recommend this hotel. Small hotel allows for more attention to guests. Grounds were well kept staff was great. Relaxation plus with just enough entertainment and nightlife to satisfy all. Our thanks again to Garry, Garfield, Terrence and Uriah hope to see you again next year.
Jewel Dunn's River Beach Resort & Spa is a 4 star resort that is all-inclusive with all the amenities one would desire. It use to be a Sandals resort, but now it is owned by Hilton.They have morning yoga and workout classes, but the gym equipment needs to be updated, there were several broken treadmills. Make sure you go to the grill by the main pool to get this best grill chicken. There are six restaurants to choose from with different cuisines, I recommend trying them all reservations are required. They have a swim-up bar and premium alcoholic drinks. Please do not buy transfers to and from the airport, because they are included, just contact the resort with your flight information, and be prepared it is about a two hour ride from the airport, because the free shuttle makes several stops at different resort along the way and the Jewel Dunn's is the last stop. If you are not in a hurry to get to the resort, I recommend taking the shuttle, because you can get an idea of what other resorts offer in Jamaica. Also, Dunn's River Falls is a mile down the road and it is a must see and do attraction make sure you wear a bathing suit and beach water shoes, you will need them.
Management ignores the fact that not every guest wants to hear extremely loud techno disco blasted all over the property. This noise and games and dj went on all day . You could hear it in the room, pool and at the beach.
