My family just returned from our 4th stay at Jewel Runaway Bay. Once again, we had an incredible vacation. We have two younger children, ages 5 and 8. We traveled with two other families - one of which had a young child (6 months old). We all enjoyed Jewel Runaway Bay thoroughly and would recommend this resort to anyone -...

I cannot say anything bad about our vacation to the Jewel Runaway Bay in Jamaica. My first impression was that i thought the resort was a bit dated as I was always used to modern resorts but after 24 hrs on the resort quickly realized it was probably the best resort we've ever traveled to. Small resort is definitely the...

We had a great time, very nice resort, excellent food and a big variety to choose from. Only thing I would have changed if possible is less rain, only mother nature has control of that. Very friendly staff!

If you're thinking about visiting this resort then do it! We did a lot of research before choosing Jewel Runaway Bay for our family vacation. We have two girls 9 and 13 and chose the resort for its activities, beach, location within 90 minutes of Montego Bay airport and the staff that everyone raved about. It didn't disappoint. From the...

Disclaimer: We are not all inclusive people and our expectations may have been too high. Overall this was a good experience and we would probably come back. This resort is run well, and their biggest asset is the people who work their. While service is not always satisfactory (e.g. endless wait for drinks over dinner was the rule), folks are...

Food was good and the staff were amazing. Platinum Dinner is great for the kids. From Mr. Potatoehead with the tatortots and...

We travelled as a couple with our 4 yr old son for 2 weeks between 8th & 22nd March. What a fabulous resort! From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the staff could not do enough for us. They really are a credit to the hotel. From the lifeguards, gardeners, servers, cleaners they were all fantastic! Food...
