10 Year Vow Renewal

Just renewed my vows here among family and friends. Everything was great! The staff took such great care of us. Our room came with an ocean view, plunge pool and concierge service. They did not disappoint! The food was great any the water park was a huge hit with the kids. Ok and the adults! My family is asking us to renew our vows again next year for our 11th, so that we can come back!! I also liked that the resort isn't too large. My Mom, who walks with a cane, was able to get around without assistance. The kids camp was awesome!! My 5 year old loved it and loved Ms. Stacy Ann!! She knew the kids in our family names after day one. Danika at the tour desk took great care of my group when we waited till the last minute to sign up for Dunns River Falls. She was great! The only bad thing about our trip was the rain! Though it didn't really stop us from having plenty to do. The kids played in the water park even in the rain. They called it a water party! Great place for a family vacay or wedding or in our case a vow renewal. Definitely going back. Just maybe not in May.

Wedding

We have just arrived back from our stay at The Jewel Runaway Bay. It was superb. The wedding day was for my daughter. Also it was her dad's 70th Birthday. 28 of us had an amazing experience. Yes we will return. The staff and entertainment crew were amazing. A big shout out to Purple, Popeye, Skeeterz, Sparkle, Tinkerbell, Rhi Rhi and all the others I've forgotten. Love you all xx

Value is good-service decreased since our last stay

We were married at this resort 3 years ago and returned for our anniversary and a friend's wedding. The overall experience at the resort was disappointing compared to our last visit. I feel that the staff were not as attentive and available. We rented cabanas daily and at times we did not see any servers for 2-3 hours. We were also asked to leave the cabanas and pools for special events in which I don't recall that every happening to us last time. Between the two families for the wedding and our guests we brought, we had over 40 people and purchased atleast 3-4 cabanas a day. It seems that many locals now enjoy the resort which caused overcrowdedness and frankly, we were unable to enjoy the new waterpark at all. Safety was of concern as well. It appears the wedding packages have changed and many of the items we had available to us were not for the wedding party we came with. I felt bad that I recommended this resort for a wedding because of this. Regarding our room, we had booked a water view and when we asked to upgrade they obliged but gave us a plunge pool. Although appreciative as the room was bigger there was absolutely no view. The bathroom was constantly flooded from the shower. I had to continually ask for more towels to soak up the water overspill. The clear partial door, although aesthetically pleasing, is not practical as it was similar to a public restroom stall. Bathroom activity is usually found to be a private matter. Simple request, but a shelf in the shower would be appreciated also as we had to leave our toiletries on the floor--which was flooded. I don't know that I would use the free shuttle if we returned. It took almost two hours to get to the resort because of the 5-6 stops we had. Last time, we were taken directly to our resort. Spa services were enjoyable as always. Pizza and calzones were delicious as was the new Platinum restaurant. Night club should open earlier and/or immediately following evening entertainment at showtime.

Fabulous holiday

Really loved our week at Jewel Runaway bay. Hotel rooms are a bit tired but clean. We had a plunge pool room for 4. Food was nice and lots of choice, so good for our picky kids. Staff all very friendly and went out of their way to please.Any problems in room were sorted quickly. My kids enjoyed the water park and the cabanas around the pool. The cabanas had electric plug sockets, great for teenagers charging their phones.A very relaxing week, would definitely go back
