Colonial decor and a 4-poster king bed topped with hand carved pineapples - a Caribbean symbol of welcome - greet you at the Jewel Dunn's River Beach Hotel in Jamaica. Most accommodations come with a view, either out towards the Ochos Rios peaks or straight across the crystal-blue waters. Butler suites are offered for indulgent walk-in closets, large bathtubs, his and hers robes, and personalized room service. Casual bites are served up in three cafes, including the Coral Cafe, which serves buffet breakfasts and lunches, and where ladies can wear their favorite cocktail dresses for formal evening dining. Jewel Dunn's vast swimming pools, water sports, and a pitch and putt golf course provide plenty of all-inclusive entertainment.

Located just to the west of the busy Ochos Rios, the hotel is surrounded by serene beauty just a short distance from the livelier island attractions. As the name suggests, the resort is very close to the world-famous Dunn's River Falls, where guests can climb the rocks and walk among wonderfully cool, gushing waters. Drive five minutes to Dolphin Cove to swim with these bright and friendly mammals, or explore the Seville Great House, a classic colonial English-style property dating back to the 17th century, now part of the Jamaican National Heritage Trust.

Jamaica Getaway

We had a great time at Jewel Dunn River Falls! The food was wonderful, the hotel staff treated us perfect, even remembered our names by the 2nd day! The Hotel location is about 1 1/2 hours from the airport, but it's really worth it because the best attractions are in Ocho Rios anyway. WE would stay here again!

20th Anninversary

Jewel Dunn's River is the nicest resort that we have ever visited. The staff was extremely pleasant and attentive to our every request. If you are looking for a beautiful, comfortable, affordable place to vacation I highly recommend this property. Just realize that this is not a sleepy little resort. "Party" music is constantly playing and there are poolside activities all day every day. You can, however, usually escape the party vibe by going to the beach. The accommodations were good but were not exquisite. Our only complaint is that their definition of adequate air conditioning is not the same as that of a typical American. The result was a room temperature that was constantly a bit "warm" thus only a 4 star rating.

Amazing resort

This resort was truly a jewel! There were so many good things about this resort! I have done a lot of traveling and have never been at a resort where the staff is ALWAYS friendly and they will do anything to accommodate you. All of the bars are great and the drink specials are delicious. They will bring you drinks on the beach-Basil and Gairy are great bartenders and sweet people! Brighton is the guy you want to see for hobies and kyack rentals which is all included in the hotel. The resturants are all very good. You can get wood grilled pizzas all day long! The beach resturant is open from 11am to 7am for anyone that stays out late. The other formal resturants are delicious-and you don't have to make reservations which is so nice! The only Resturant you have to make a reservation for is the hibachi Resturant. Go to the blue hole!!! It is so beautiful. Although the hotel does not reccomend it because it's not promoted by the tours. Get a cab and go to the blue hole-1000 times better than Dunn River Falls! We took a cab and was 60 to the hole and then 10 each. You just pay the locals and they take you to the cliff jumps, rope swings, and crystal clear waters! We went with Troy and Hector and they were fun and made the experience great! I really can't say enough about the Jewel. It is a great resort and truly the best staff in Jamaica!!!

Awesome experience

The Independence Beach Party was great, the dining under the stars gets great reviews, The Jade dinner with Chef Junior will always be one to remember. Most of the female servers were not very friendly, though not being rude, but it would be nice to see them smile a little. The entertainment crew, especially Baby Face were wonderful, the swim up bar attendants especially Damien, really pleasant and bubbly. Bret-Lee the most nicest Concierge as well as the others. Awesome vacation compared to all others from the front gate security to the groundsman. Did not enjoy the food at the Italian restaurant.

Great Getaway!

This was our second visit to The Jewel. We needed a relaxing getaway from our busy life so we decided the Jewel was the place to go back to. The staff is wonderful. They are all so friendly and willing to make your stay special! Roger in The Tree Bar was our favorite bartender. Always remembered what we wanted to drink the moment we walked in. Chevaughn in The Moonstone took very good care of us both nights we ate there. We did the Diamond Ocean View Room with Room Service & concierge and highly recommend it. We had breakfast on our balcony two mornings. They would come in and set it up and make you feel special. We will surely go back in the future!

It was top notch, Service, Room and all staff was so kind and friendly. We were so sad to leave. We were treated with the up-most courtesy. Staff was so eager to help with anything they could. Everyone had a smile and a "good day" , "good evening". with a smile. Made to feel welcomed. Restaurant foods and buffet were great. Love the Jewel Dunn's River. We will be back next year if not sooner. Beautiful weather, hot, hot.

Best Jamaican Adult Resort!

My hubby and a I were fast approaching our bday and wedding anniversary and wanted to do something special to celebrate. We had many places we wanted to visit but thoughts what's more romantic than Jamaica for our getaway? I did a lot of research and saw Dunn's River Resort was getting really good reviews and the value for the money seems to be on par with our budget. We decided to go for it and are so glad we did. Yes, the resort is a bit far from the airport but the excellent driver we had kept us busy with interesting island history and tidbits. Once at the hotel (which took almost 3 hours with all the drop offs - just a heads up) we were greeted with rum punch and cold towels to freshen up with. Check in was a breeze and we were in our room in no time. The room was lovely with a king sized bed and a balcony. We stayed in the Sapphire mountain view room. We saw the mountains as well as the golf range. Very quiet and relaxing I must add. The bathroom was a tad small but the walk in closet and spacious sink/vanity outside the bathroom (tub/shower combo and toilet) more than made up for it. The bed was comfy and the temp was always perfect. The grounds are well kept and every part of the resort was beautiful. We dined at the Jade, Platinum, Coral Cafe and Aquamarine Grill and all were fabulous. We also were able to enjoy local fare for breakfast courtesy of Bertram and the chef: roasted breadfruit and salt fish for breakfast YUM! Bergtram and Peggy (from the cafe and various other restaurants), Camilla and Fallon (from Radiant Spa) and Morris from the Sunken Treasure bar made our stay even more memorable. Their kindness and professionalism was impeccable. This resort and it's employees go the extra mile to ensure a memorable stay and hopefully your return. I know I will return soon!

Check out Mystic Mountain and zipline! Bobsleding looked like fun but don't bother with the chair lift ride. The chair lift ride up the mountain is more than enough to satisfy this curiosity.

Romantic getaway

This resort was amazing! My husband and I spent 5 wonderful days here and loved every minute of it! Your stay starts with a relaxing check in, resting after a long ride from the airport. The friendly staff passes out "the drink of the day" along with a cool infused washcloth while relaxing in their open aired main lobby. Your bags are brought to your room while they encourage you to start enjoying the resort amenities. Their pool bars were amazing, never skimping on the alcoholic beverages. Our room was very clean and comfortable. I did have specific requests for our Diamond building room, which was not met at first, but quickly rectified the following day. I would recommend staying in the Diamond building, higher floor, even numbered room. The view of the ocean and resort was amazing. The food was very good at all of the restaurants. The best part of staying at this resort was their entertainment! "The kids" did a great job with keeping everyone entertained from 10 a.m. until 2 a.m. When we did leave the resort for excursions, we actually felt like we were missing out on activities that were taking place on the resort! This resort was wonderful and we would recommend staying here 100%!

great service

All staff members are friendly and make sure you are taken care of. A little far from airport. Food was good. Even though this resort had less restaurants than others we had been to they keep it interesting by having a beach party one night and dinner on the pier one night. Grill near pool and ocean open all night with great Jerk Chicken and other foods. Beach area is small but nice. Resort is smaller than others but it was nice for a change to walk easily to everything. Ask around about the blue hole.... it was much better than the dunns river which was very crowded and not leisurely. The blue hole is not advertised by tour groups, you wI'll need to take a cab or ask for Rusty to take you. The blue hole was beautiful and young guides working for tips that will take pics for you while you are swimming and enjoying the falls.
