Upon arrival we checked in and escorted to our room which was to be a water view room as I had reserved and paid for. When we entered the room I realized we were given a court yard room. This was not explained at check in which would have been better received than feeling like they were just trying to...

Staff were mainly young and enthusiastic. They would feed you and supply you with drinks and information as needed. Main areas and gardens were kept in very good condition. The sleeping areas and rooms could do with some TLC, but were about acceptable. The food was abundant as was the choice of cocktails and other drinks. Entertainment was varied, and...

The service from all staff is outstanding however, the facilities are shabby and run down. Stair carpet is dirty and is very well worn, the bathrooms and bedrooms are refurbished but poorly and not much thought given to function or practicality. The maid service is excellent and beds are comfortable. The gardens and grounds are nicely maintained and it is...

This review is a little late but still wanted to share our amazing experience of this resort. We have now travelled here twice March 2014 and May 2016. Our first trip we had our 4 month old and 19 month old so our priorities were shaded areas and kid friendly. The resort did not disappoint. From the amazing wait staff...

Upon arrival we were greeted and welcomed back. Getting our room 1239 and checking in went smoothly. Once we got into our room I immediately noticed it wasn't very cool so I set the temp to 68 F and went out to enjoy. After 3 hours of enjoying the pools & bar we returned to the room to get ready...

We visited Jewel Runaway Bay during the Thanksgiving holiday, just myself and a 4 and 6 year old. It was cloudy and rainy most of our stay, but that did not damper our trip. The rooms had been updated, even though the buildings were older, and we did not have any bug issues. We were in a second floor waterview...

We spent 8 nights/9 days at the Jewel in December 2014--just before Christmas. Had a great time. Nothing to complain about--the property was nice, had a lovely ocean view balcony suite, the food was good and staff did a good job keeping the kids (and adults) entertained. Particularly there was an older slightly disabled gentlemen who the girls painted with...
